News of Boise Southwest Rotary
imageThis year, the district nominated several qualified and enthusiastic candidates, and they look forward to working with all of them in leadership roles across District 5400 today and in the future. Mike will follow Kathy Buck as District Governor, serving District 5400 in the 2026-2027 Rotary year.
 
Mike grew up in Custer County, Idaho (Stanley and Challis), and graduated from the University of Idaho. Mike then married the love of his life, Beth Markley, in Boise, where they raised their two sons, Colin and Jack.
 
For Mike, Rotary has profoundly and positively impacted him and his family. He is immensely grateful for how Rotary provides opportunities to grow, serve, and make a difference.
 
Mike brings organization, strategic thinking, servant leadership, a love of people, and a desire to help them reach their potential. Mike will seek ways to advance Rotary's mission by enabling people to find inspiration, peace, and understanding through connection and service.
 
Congratulations, Mike! We appreciate everything you’ve done for Rotary and look forward to your leadership.
 
Boise Southwest's new President for the 2023-2024 Rotary year was welcomed this month by outgoing President Janie Best, who received a plaque with gavel in appreciation of her outstanding efforts in leading our club this past year. Her leadership featured numerous activities including increased member involvement in community projects and successful fund raising for our Rotary Club Foundation which supports these projects. Congratulations to Janie and welcome to Kyle in the new year!
    On May 5, Rotarians, friends and supporters gathered at the Basque Center for Jambalaya, Crawfish, and Gumbo, along with a live auction. Bands from Hillside Junior High, Boise High and North Junior High played New Orleans style jazz music for the evening. Funds raised will be used for our local community service projects, including Whittier Elementary School. Whitney Elementary School, and St. Luke's Cancer Institute. 
      
Whittier Elementary School has long been one of our signature community service projects.  Each year, we host a special activity for each grade.  For their final year at Whittier, we treat the 6th grade class to a graduation party at Wahooz Fun Zone.  The students and teachers recently played all day and had a pizza party!  Whittier is a Title I school, and 96% of students qualify for free or reduced price lunches.
