Club News and Service Projects
On June 21, Holladay Rotary Club members gathered at the Holladay City's park pavilion to hold our June meeting and celebrate our events and achieved goals from the past year as well as welcome our new Holladay Rotary president. Cathy Mullaly, our current president, proudly served our club for the last year and rang her last meeting bell during this event. We celebrated the many successful service projects and fundraisers organized under her leadership. 
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.
It was a beautiful morning for our service with Memorial Estates! We had lots of choices for breakfast foods and drinks! A great turn out with a speech from Mayor Rob Dahle and the Utah Pipe Band Honor guard! We hope to make this a yearly tradition.

“That’s what friends are for,” states District Governor Jose Velasco in announcing KUTV Channel 2 news anchor Brian Mullahy has accepted an invitation to speak at the RY2022-23 Utah Rotary District Conference on the weekend of May 4-6, 2023.  This amazing event will be held at the beautiful new Midvalley Performing Arts Center at 2525 Taylorsville Blvd. in Taylorsville. 

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."

Saturday, March 25th, Holladay Rotary Club had a great evening playing games together.  We played Poetry for Neanderthals, Relative Insanity, and Bingo.
VOA Youth Resource Center
Saturday, February 25th Holladay Rotary served up a wonderful chicken lunch to the youth at the VOA Youth Resource center. The Youth Resource Center is a drop in center and emergency shelter for  youth ages 15-22 imminently at risk of experiencing homelessness.  They provide essential basic needs such as 3 hot meals a day, pantry food, showers, laundry, life skills, housing, and employment case management. Evenings, the center transitions into a 30 bed emergency shelter with a temporary increase to 50 beds this winter. The YRC relies on volunteers 365 days a year to provide and serve meals.
At our monthly January meeting, we had the honor of celebrating our club president, Cathy Mullaly, who received the esteemed Paul Harris Fellow Award.  The Paul Harris Fellow recognition acknowledges individuals who contribute, or have contributions made in their name, of $1,000 to The Rotary Foundation.  Congratulations and thanks for all your service Cathy!  We also were delighted to have two students that attended RYLA (Rotary Youth Leadership Awards) come and share incredible stories of friendships, speakers, and the lasting impact of the values of leadership they learned at the event.  We hope to be able to support them in their future endeavors and start an Interact Club in the near future.
