Women in Rotary were celebrated Saturday evening, May 6, 2017.  Organizer, Marie Mullarkey did an excellent job of arranging for speakers, Jackie Lavelle, Malinda Schafman and Sheila Sterns (the first woman Rotarian in Montana) to give humorous and insightful presentations.  The evening concluded with a dessert auction by master auctioneer, Rick Moore (unfortunately no picture!)  Women have been a GREAT addition to our club!

Our speaker Tuesday, April 18, 2017, was Chris Siders, Match Support Specialist with Big Brothers Big Sisters of Helena.  Chris gave background and story to the impact that "Bigs" have on "Littles."  BBBS was also our partner agency for our Trivia Night fundraiser on Thursday, April 20, 2017.
First Interstate Bank President, Rich Bruner, presents a check for $1,000 to Club Treasurer, Gary Williams to assist in funding improvements to the 6th Ward Community Garden.  More information to come later on the Garden project.

Tuesday, April 11, 2017.  Sunrise Rotary member, Murray Strong, led a very successful first time effort to have the Helena Sunrise and Helena Noon Rotary Clubs unite to Adopt a stretch of the Spokane Creek highway that runs 2 miles north of “the blinking light” on Highway 12.  This project involves picking up garbage three times a year. We are doing our part to help keep litter off the road.  It is important to keep debris and pollutants out of highway drainage areas. Community pride is important for a cleaner greener America.  How long does trash last? Paper last about 6 weeks, Cigarette Butts last about 1-5 years, plastics 10 + years, aluminum cans 50 years, glass bottles over 200 years.  Keep Montana Beautiful.  This session resulted in 29 bags filled!  THANK YOU MURRAY – GREAT JOB!!!!
