Our first Backyard Badminton Jamboree was held yesterday, July 26th.  It was great fun for all.  We had some great competition, music and food.  Thanks to our Event sponsors, Ice Chips Candy.  Their team was the overall winner of the event and of course they are winners in our minds anyway.  Hope you all will join us next year for our Jamboree.Image

 

 
 
Yelm Rotary hosted the 2nd Rotarian Bowling Challenge recently at Yelm Prairie Lanes.  A total of 6 Rotary clubs from Thurston County came to compete.   The event is held 2 times a year and pits the Thurston County Rotary clubs against each other.  It is a fun evening of bowling and networking.

It was a close match with Hawks Prairie taking the trophy home this time.  Centennial Capital was the winner in the event held last fall.  Yelm Rotary came in 3rd.  

Money raised at these events go to support our Youth programs in the Yelm community, including a Scholarship at Yelm High School and support of our Interact Club.  We look forward to our next event this fall.

Yelm Community Services recently received two grants that will provide a place for members of the homeless community to wash their clothes and get cleaned up. It will also allow an ADA-accessible ramp to the studio apartment at the south end, which will provide one additional unit which will be used as a transitional living apartment, for households who are exiting the shelter but not yet financially stable enough to live on their own.

Rotaract award winners celebrated for their life-changing projects
The village of Kumbharwadi is one of many in a drought-prone region near Mumbai, India. Until recently, its residents had access to only one well with drinkable water. During the summer months, the well runs dry, and the women and girls of the village travel three to four hours a day to search for water. Enter Project Boond, undertaken by a Rotaract club, a Rotary club, and the Watershed Organization Trust to provide clean drinking water and sanitation facilities in Kumbharwadi. Nikunj Pherwani, 2013-14 president of the Rotaract Club of Hassaram Rijhumal College of Commerce and Economics in...
Young writers get published with the help of Rotary
In Jamaica, 11-year-old Jordan Allwood reads his classmates a story about a lonely puppy who finds a new family. The puppy grows into a big dog, enjoys walks along the beach, and survives a frightening autumn day when he is caught in a trap before being rescued by his family. Jordan's story is one of hundreds that were written by children ages 7-11 for a writing contest organized by the Rotary E-Club of the Caribbean 7020 and supported by clubs in 10 Caribbean nations. The best stories, including Jordan's, were published in "The Butterfly StoryBook," produced by the club and sold through...
Clubs breaking down barriers to clean water in Ghana
When Marty Hatala, a member of the Rotary Club of Boaz, Alabama, first traveled to Ghana in 2010 to volunteer at a local orphanage, she saw how local communities struggled to find clean water. Though at least 80 percent of the country's population has access to improved water sources, according to UNICEF, 5 million Ghanaians still use water from unsafe sources. That leaves a significant part of the country's population susceptible to a range of diseases. Worldwide, one out of every five deaths among those under the age of five is caused by water-related diseases. Hatala's experiences in Ghana...
Secrets of a successful crowdsourcing campaign
In case you haven't heard, a man raised nearly $60,000 to make potato salad as a spoof on a popular fundraising site. If he can do that, a campaign to raise money for feeding hungry children or building a school in a war-torn country should be a snap, right? Wrong. The Internet is littered with humanitarians struggling to raise the money and gather the resources for projects that could make a positive impact in the world. So, what is the secret to a successful crowdsourcing campaign? It's simple, really: make it easy to give. Here are some ways you can make it easy for supporters to back your...
