Daddy Daughter Dance! What a hoot!

Happy faces abounded at the 7th Annual Daddy Daughter Dance May 7th.  Dads, grandads, uncles, and others escorted their fancifully dressed dates to rock to the tunes of DJ Curran Holden. The fun time featured a food buffet including non-stop Dominos pizza, finger foods, and a chocolate fountain. Faces were painted with flowers and butterflies and formal portraits were taken to commemorate the event. Heather and Jessy Watson led the La Grande Rotarians in organizing the dance. Support from sponsors helped offset costs and ticket sales were used to sponsor local high school scholarships; the community literacy project, READ TOGETHER!;  and support for rural young women of poverty to attend high school in El Salvador.

Interview with a Ukrainian Mom.

Brent Clapp of EO Alive TV showed an interview with Zee Gimon this last Tuesday at La Grande Rotary. Zee reported conditions on the ground from Kyiv, Ukraine. A mother of two, she explained how they lived a typical day in the county’s capital sheltering in the basement of a church and moving to an interior hallway when they hear air raid sirens. Her husband is helping defend the city. She only has seen him for a few minutes in the last two weeks of the war. After the interview, the Club heard news that she and her children have escaped to Poland. Her desire was that we pray for peace and for the safety of the people of Ukraine. See the interview at:
