Memorial Day Program was a Success
Our Memorial Day Program last week was a huge success. Big thanks to the skillful leadership of In-Club Celebrations Chair Tim Kenny and his talented committee members. Maj. Gen.

Dictionary Project: Thank You from Morley Elementary
Fourth-grade students in Mrs. Lackey’s class at Morley Elementary who received dictionaries through our Club said Thank you to Rotarians!
From Meagan Liesveld: "My daughter is in the class and was thrilled to tell her class a little about Rotary (she did the highway pick up with me last fall, so shared a bit about our volunteerism) and to also share with me what joy and excitement the dictionaries brought to the classroom. One person in her class was so excited; he took it out to recess with him on the day he received it! It created quite a positive buzz at Morley on that day, and they wanted to convey their thanks with the card".

Sharing a Love of Reading with Kids
We have enjoyed staying connected to Everett students by “Zoom reading” to them every single week since September.  The new format has been very successful and we created this short video to share our experience as readers! Click here to watch the video edited by Randy Bretz. Shout out to U.S. Bank for being the sponsor of the Read Aloud program this year, providing 2 new books per month to each Everett child we read to throughout the school year.  “U.S. Bank is a proud member of the Lincoln community and thrilled to have the opportunity to support the students, teachers, and families at Everett Elementary by sponsoring books for Rotary 14’s Read Aloud program.
