News of Boise Southwest Rotary

LobsterFest is an annual major dinner auction fund-raising event put on by four Boise area Rotary Clubs (Boise Southwest, Sunrise, Nampa, and the Eagle/Garden City Clubs). In light of the new economy we are now living in, we are taking LobsterFest online and inviting all other area Rotary clubs in our chapter to join us and raise funds for the organizations we support. Our goal is to combine our efforts and produce a successful auction to help the Clubs raise funds to provide services to the organizations we support locally and around the world. With a fun play on words, we introduce you to the LobsterGhost Online Auction.  Please visit our LobsterGhost Online Auction site and register today. Our online auction begins October 14th and ends October 25th.  Join us!

Exciting news, if you haven’t heard:  we have formed a satellite club in Idaho City and we have Mowbray Brown to thank.  Mowb has a long family history with Idaho City and thought…why not a Rotary Club there?  His first step was to leave Rotary information around town, including at the Boise Basin Library.  In an amazing stroke of luck, the head of the library, Marci Moore, knows about Rotary.  Her father was district governor so she values the organization and what it offers both its members and its communities.  A partnership was born.
Marci gladly volunteered to lead the satellite club and proceeded to reach out to her Idaho City friends and colleagues.  In a very short time she recruited 12 people to join:  Rora Canody, Ed Didinger, Bobby Mathews, Barbara McClain, Matthew Nesbitt, Jennifer Olvera, Theresa Pledge, Sydney Porter, Beth Wilson, Brian Hunicke and Staci Baumhoff.  This is an amazing accomplishment.  To our new members in Idaho City we say WELCOME.  You have a rewarding future with Rotary.  
 
Additionally, Boise Southwest Rotary has donated $2,500 to the Idaho City School District PTA to procure badly needed football helmets for the school team.  Receiving the contribution below are members of the PTA, the Rotary satellite club, and some of the football players.
