S.T.E.A.M.

S.T.E.A.M. stands for Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics

This fair was a vocational event that included booths where students can come and take a vocational assessment questionnaire to see what vocation might best suit them. Local businesses had hands demo stations at booths so that students could meet and understand various industries and what is involved with various vocations. Rotary helped to get local businesses to participate and also had a "What is Rotary" table to introduce students and their families to Rotary. We passed out Rotary brochures and materials and spoke to the students about Rotary and Interact Clubs. Several Rotarians that have businesses participated by having a hands on booth as well.

The Giving Side of Christmas

Usually, people give gifts to the children of DFACS, but not so this year! The Children actually got to shop for gifts for others.

Children were receiving gifts but did not have the opportunity of experiencing the joy of giving. One Rotarian noticed and our club started the “Giving Side of Christmas” and the event has been a huge success.

Welcome Children Back to School with Rotary Pencils

Rotarians greet families and children back to school at Jackson Elementary School with Rotary logo pencils. This is a great way to boost Rotary public image. We are there at the door when the families arrive and give out pencils and greet and shake hands with family. It is inexpensive, but is great for public image and helps the students as well.
