Highway and beach cleanups, Whistle Stop Marathon to name a few. Rotary clubs participate in a broad range of humanitarian, intercultural, and educational projects that provide health care, clean water, training, and youth development. Rotary’s Polio Plus program collaborates with health organizations worldwide to immunize all of the world’s children against polio. The incidence of polio has dropped 99% since the program was launched. Rotary also supports intercultural understanding through a variety of scholarships and exchange programs for students and young professionals.
In addition to its youth development programs, the Ashland Rotary Club supports the development of area park facilities and civic improvement projects.
Area middle school students who demonstrate leadership and commitment to community service outside of school will be recognized each month and will designate a financial contribution for the program they advance. Recent chosen organizations include the Vaughn Public Library, Bayfield Recreation Center, and the Chequamegon Humane Association.
High school students receive a full scholarship to a 1-week, summer academy that provides advanced training in leadership skills. The RYLA camp is located on the University of Minnesota - Crookston campus and bus transportation is provided to the camp as well as room and board and a fun filled week of leadership building activities at no cost to the selected student.
The Ashland Rotary Club appreciates the positive influence that teachers have on their students in the classroom but for this award we wish to recognize the fact that teachers also set a good example by being actively involved in the community, outside of their classroom. Many teachers demonstrate their
commitment to servant leadership through volunteerism, which is critical to supplementing area social services and providing additional educational and cultural experiences that contribute to the quality of life in our community.
A $500 donation will be made to a nonprofit organization or project chosen by the award recipient. The deadline is annually in February.
The concert is an opportunity for the Rotary to fund raise and let others know about the Ashland Rotary Education Leadership Grant program, which awards funds to community service and education projects in the region. Those projects – all of which must help young people develop a community service ethic and leadership skills – range from a garden project at Our Lady of the Lake Catholic School to training members of a Junior Ski Patrol at Mt. Ashwabay.
