Newport Rotary held our Pancake Breakfast on February 10, 2018. It was a great success serving an estimated 250 hungry pancake eaters during a three hour period. Thank you to all those that came out to support Newport Rotary and have a great time.
A special thanks to the Newport Jiffy Mart, Woodlawn Care Center, Summercrest and Stetson’s (real maple syrup) for their donations helping to make our pancake breakfast a great treat. Also, thank you to Ass’t District Governor, David Saturley, the group from Orion House and all the Rotarians and friends who volunteered their time and efforts.
See you next February for another Winter Carnival Pancake Breakfast.
Started in 2017, our Newport Rotary Club began a new a new program which awards annual mini grants to Newport grades 9-12 teachers for programs which are needed in the Newport School District. There are a maximum of five grants awarded each year with a maximum of $1,000.00 per grant.
Applications have been given to NMHS for our 2018 grants. They will be available to teachers very soon. Applications will be submitted to our Teachers’ Grant committee of Barbara Brill and Gary Szalucka.
We are happy to be able to give back to the community again this year.
