Holladay City Hall Social

This July, we had our first Potluck Social at the Holladay City Hall with members from other local rotary clubs.  We welcomed Mary French as our special guest, who spearheaded The Dictionary Project, which the Holladay Rotary Club has supported annually for decades.  The Dictionary Project is a 501(c) (3) nonprofit organization that is working toward providing a dictionary to every student in the United States.  The goal of this program is to assist all students in becoming good writers, active readers, creative thinkers, and resourceful learners by providing them with their own personal dictionary.  Meeting with Mary was a delight, and a great reminder that each of us can make an immense impact on the world with dedication and perseverance.

We had a fun service project cleaning up Olympus Pines Park on a beautiful Saturday in May.  We had a good group and everyone worked in tandem.  One person held the bag and the other scooped the debris in.  Lots of raking, sneezing and great conversation.  Yes, allergy season was in full bloom.

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.

Olympus Pines Park

The weather finally cooperated for our annual cleanup of Olympus Pines Park, home of the the largest Austrian Pines in the United States.  Rotarians de-thatched the grounds, picked up trash, pulled weeds and filled up over 20 trash bags to rebeautify the park.

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.
