Habitat for Humanity Builds Dec 8th & 13th

Our club has a great partnership with Habitat for Humanity. This month, several of us helped on-site. It’s so remarkable to witness first hand what the power of many working towards a common goal can achieve.

Building for Bob! December 13th, some of our Rotarians helped with another build and fondly dedicated the day to our dearly departed past president, Bob Dittmar. He was an excellent example of a true Rotarian and friend to all whose positive energy and outlook will continue to inspire our club.

Taste of IRB 2017

Taste of IRB

Club President Fintan Vargas took some amazing video of the Taste of IRB on Saturday! You can see the event from the air and close-up on the ground. Chic-A-Si Park was crowded, and everyone looked to be having a great time!

We were there to talk to people about rotary and everything we do for the community, and to let people know about our Big Game Raffle Fundraiser… and, of course, to sample some of the fine restaurants from our community!
