A reflection of the year’s projects under President and Mayor Cullen included involving the club in building a senior community garden, helping with the Bishop career seminar and job fair, tending to the roses at the fairgrounds, laying pavers in the city park, delivering wish tree presents, driving a bear to Bishop and collecting DVD’s for Vets. Fundraising was accomplished through the Bishop Mardi Gras party, serving at Good Ole Days and Comstock Cowboys and a Coffee Drive. Donations were made to Polio Plus, Local Scholarships, Local Programs, Guatemala Literacy and Shelterbox. Other highlights included hosting a Group Study Exchange team from France and sending two Rotary Youth Leadership students to a three day leadership skills camp in Southern California.
The annual dinner is also the occasion at which Rotary honors their volunteers. This past Rotary year has been a wonderful experience and very rewarding. We can all be very proud of the work we have done in our own community and internationally. I would like to thank each and every member, my sincere thank you for your support and help during this year. We did Make Dreams Real. said Susan Cullen
