  • Paradise Rotary 2015-16 Elementary School Mini-Grant Awards

    Mini Grant Presentation to Ponderosa jan 15-16Paradise Rotary President, Dana Gajda presenting a Mini-Grant award check to the second grade teachers at Ponderosa Elementary School. Originating from the Paradise Rotary Foundation, a grant of $1144.58 was presented for the purchase of charging stations for use by second graders at the school. Ponderosa was one of 6 elementary schools to receive the grants including two Charter Schools.

    Paradise Rotary has had the Elementary Mini Grant Program for a number of years. Over time it has evolved, but starting in the 2012/13 school year the club split up $4000.00 based on the number of students in each classroom that applied. That year Rotary focused the grant at the 5th grades, the next year 4th and so on until this year when it was the 2nd grade students turn for their share of the $4000.00.

    The Rotary Club of Paradise was chartered in 1946 and is celebrating it’s 70th year serving our local community with numerous service projects. The Club meets every Thursday Noon at the Lutheran church on Skyway.

    Thanks to Ron Jones. Andrea Reid. and Arthur Pollock (the photographer). for helping with the presentation.
