BIGFORK ROTARY ROUNDUP


Two Bigfork High School students, Wilson Vogt and Mariela Zavala gave our club “wanderlust” as they told of their school history trip to Greece and Italy last April.

Thanks go out to the community of Bigfork for the wonderful response to over a year of fundraising these kids did along with all the other students who went with them.

HISTORY DAY Late in April, students from Bigfork Middle School presented their projects to the club for the National History Day competition.

The group brought 12 projects to the Montana state competition and 10 placed in the top three spots. The winning teams and individuals are headed for Nationals which were June 11 to 17 at the University of Maryland. They also saw some sites in Washington D.C. during the trip. If you can assist this program, contact advisor Ms. Wilondek at Bigfork schools.

DICTIONARIES

On Nov. 4, the third graders at Bigfork Elementary received their dictionaries (Upper Right) from our club with enthusiasm. The crowd of more than 60 kids had lots of fun finding words like “voracious” (as in voracious readers!) and learning about the Rotary Four Way Test.

BOTTLESHOCK Wine and sumptuous desserts accompanied the showing of Bottleshock, a movie loosely based on a memoir by local Laura Barrett.

Laura opened the movie with personal stories about her family’s purchase of Chateau Montelena Winery in California. Montelena’s Chardonnay won a blind tasting in 1976 and became the first American wine honored by the French.

What a fun fundraising event for our club! Thank you to all who attended! The event raised more than $1,800.

CHILDREN’S PLAYHOUSE What a wonderful poised group that entertained our club this past Wednesday! We enjoyed hearing and learning more about Bigfork Playhouse Children’s Theatre and the immense amount of children that are involved with this program.
