The Rotary Club of Bishop is committed to helping school children in our community. They work hard during the year raising funds for their many charitable programs. Over $3600.00 was spent for classroom supplies for 960 children at the Pine Street and Round Valley Elementary schools. Rotary members gathered at Kay O’Brien’s home Saturday October 4th and put together 60 boxes of classroom items.
The boxes were delivered to the schools on Monday October 6th. Principal Heather Carr gave Jim O’Brien, Kay O’Brien Josh Ingram, Ed and Pat Nahin and Jack England a warm welcome and thanked the Rotary Club for boxes of classroom materials. Accepting the boxes and getting ready to deliver the supplies to the classrooms were Vice Principal Gretchen Skrotzki,
Cindy Tobey, Debbie Walder, Wayne Linse, Matt Scott and Tracey Taylor. Karen Marshall, Principal at Round Valley Elementary School was surprised and delighted to get the boxes of school goodies.
The Rotary Club of Bishop welcomes people to visit their weekly Tuesday noon meetings at
Astorga’s Restaurant. We are all part of a diverse and vibrant Bishop community and are constantly seeking individuals who want to share in the service and fellowship of Rotary. Please call Pat Nahin for further information about our Club: 760 872 2022
