Here is what is happening in our club

 
Shelby Rohrbacher, a mortgage loan officer at Wyoming Community Bank, has been elected to serve as Presient of the Lander Rotary Club in the 2024-25
Rotary year beginning July 1.  Shelby has been a member of the Club since 2019, but her history in Rotary goes back further than that.  She attended District
5440's Rotary Youth Leadership Award Academy (RYLA) as a high school student and was a member of Interact (Rotary's high school program) and 
Rotaract (Rotary's program for young adults).  She chaired the club's Buffalo BBQ event in 2022 and has served as the club's Membership Chair and interim
RYLA/Interact chair.
 
Shelby will succeed Mandy Fabel, executive director of Leadership Wyoming, as President.
 
 
 
Eleven Lander Rotarians continued the club’s Rotary Readers program at Gannett Peak Elementary School in the 2023-24 school year, reading weekly to students from kindergarten through third grade. The program has been ongoing for the last 15 years or more, and Staci Lancaster has served as the coordinator for the last 10 years or so.  Readers this year were Perry Cook, M.J. Greene, Arlen Lancaster, Staci Lancaster, Jackie Nelson, Joe Quiroz, Shelby Rohrbacher, Cori Slingerland, Marit Snow Sawyer, Dottie Tonkowich (pictured with class), and Lisa Dawson (substitute).
Aquinas (Quin) Lasnoski, a senior at Lander Valley High School, has been selected to receive the club’s $1,500 college scholarship for 2024. 
The oldest of 10 children in his family, Quin hopes to attend either the United States Air Force Academy or the University of Notre Dame
and to eventually become a pilot and officer in the U. S. Air Force.  Among his many activities, Quin has been a Civil Air Patrol cadet leader,
member of the LVHS track and cross-country teams, member of the National Honor Society, and volunteer coach of an U10 youth soccer team. 
Twelve students submitted applications.  

   "The Magic of Rotary” will be Rotary International’s presidential theme in 2024-25.  “Don’t misunderstand me," President-elect Stephanie Urchick said in  announcing the theme. "We are not going to end polio or bring peace to the world by waving a wand and saying some funny words... It’s up to you. You create the magic with every project completed, every dollar donated, and every new member.”  This will be the last presidential theme, as Rotary International has decided to discontinue the practice after 2025.  The tradition of crafting a theme is credited to Percy C. Hodgson, Rotary’s president in 1949-50.  

2024 -- No new wild polio cases this month!  It's been 7 weeks since the last reported case of paralysis!
