Rotary Picnic and Special Olympian Celebration

Summer is leaking into Fall and time for the annual Rotary-Special Olympics Picnic. Each year. La Grande Rotarians sponsor a picnic for our local Special Olympians to honor their accomplishments in sport. Besides the regular fare of hot dogs and hamburgers and all the sides, Olympians and Rotarians enjoy games, bingo with huge prizes, and fellowship. This year the picnic will be held at the Rotary Pavilion in Pioneer Park on September 10 at 5:30 PM.

In Memorium

Michael Moeller

Rotary lost a friend and servant to the club on June 22. He was a faithful secretary to the club carefully tracking attendance, club records, updating the district database, keeping track of board meeting minutes, prodding the president about elections and officers, and otherwise keeping the club on track. All of this he did cheerfully.  He was a quiet man with a big heart to serve–A Rotarian and a friend who will be missed dearly.

New Rotary Year

Michelle pledged to continue the good work and to pursue the high school and college Rotary affiliates of Interact and Rotaract Clubs.
