May Rotary Meeting

Posted on Apr 18, 2024
Taylor Jensen is a family man, a carpenter, and an outdoorsman. He loves Utah. He finally got sick of looking at all the trash on our highways and felt like he had to do something. So he started a social media campaign to bring awareness to how dirty our highways are. He recently had a meeting with UDOT and realized how much over burdensome bureaucracy there is even for such a simple task as picking up trash. He understands now more than ever how critical local community action will be to solve this problem.

Coats for Kids Car Show 2023

This month, the Holladay Rotary Club supported the Coats For Kids Car Show organized by the Bountiful Rotary Club. This two-day event was full of fun activities for all families! Our Holladay Rotary members supported the ticket sales on Friday, June 16, and Saturday, June 17.  With the funds collected, the Bountiful Rotary Club will purchase many winter coats to be donated later in the year, and some of the purchased coats will also benefit the organizations we work with, like the Hispanic and Latino Club.
We continue to collect money donations or winter coats (new or in gently used condition) that can be used for our Coat Drive later this year. Coat donations can be dropped off at the Midvale Community Building located at 49 W Center St, Midvale, UT 84047.

Tree Planting - April 21st & 28th

Thank you to all our Holladay Rotary members who joined our past two Tree Planting events celebrating Arbor Day! Both schools, Howard Driggs Elementary and Crestview Elementary, welcomed us and allowed us to interact with the kids as we learned how to care for trees together. We want to thank Holladay City Tree and Tree Utah for your support and collaboration in making these events a success! Here are some fun pictures of the two events.
“We care for trees, and they care for you right back."

Dictionary Project

The Dictionary Project
The Dictionary Project is a 501(c) (3) nonprofit organization with the goal of assisting all students in becoming good writers, active readers, creative thinkers, and resourceful learners by providing them with their own personal dictionary. The dictionaries are a gift to each student to use at school and at home for years to come. Educators see third grade as the dividing line between learning to read and reading to learn, so sponsors are encouraged to give dictionaries each year to children in the third grade.

Holladay Square Cleanup

The Holladay Rotary Club had planned for a group litter cleanup for our March service project, but unfortunately the weather forecast rained on our parade and the project had to be pushed to April.  Luckily a few of our amazing members were still able to get out before the storm hit and cleaned up the Holladay Plaza.
