Asking for a good showing of Rotarians so that we can get some press coverage Thanks to Dina Erdag, our project leader, Rotarians were successful in delivering books, pencils and crayons to the Mt Charleston elementary school for the kids to develop and participate in the Together We Read Program. The books were donations from the community and collected throughout the year.
The Pahrump Valley Rotary Club is sponsoring a project to help kids at the ROSEMARY CLARKE MIDDLE SCHOOL to learn about the United States Constitution. Students will be given a copy of the constitution to read and then create a project such as an essay, art work, or video depicting what they have learned about the constitution.
Deadline for their submission is due January 15th, 2022. In February The Pahrump Valley Rotary Foundation will award the winning student and their teacher a $100 gift card
