The Latest News from the "Make it Happen" Club
 
One major part of our Fund a Need during our auction was to support principal grants. Every principal in the La Conner School District received $1000 for them to use to help any child in need so that child is more comfortable at school and more readily able to learn. These may include new shoes, a coat, glasses, notebooks, funds for sports or a field trip, etc. Both the principals and Rotarians were emotional to be able to offer these new grants. The intent is to maintain them annually.
 
Mel Damski spoke to our club this week about his career as a film and TV show director and columnist/journalist. He directed a number of TV shows, including Ally McBeal and Psych. He writes a column for the local paper called "If I Ran the Zoo" We enjoyed his story immensely of his family background and his career.
Catherine Endicott spoke to us about the North Cascades Institute and all the programs they offer for all ages: three years old to seniors. All the programs focus on education out in nature. 
 
Thank you to our sponsors listed below and all our generous donors!! Thanks to you our 2021 auction was very successful and we will be able to fund all our usual projects and a few more.
