Raising funds for North Fork Valley high school senior scholarships is taken very seriously by members of the Rotary Club of Paonia. For the past four years, the club has awarded $20,000 per year to worthy high school seniors. Being one of the smallest Rotary Clubs in Colorado, this is an ambitious task that requires a lot of planning each year. As scholarships for 2012 loom in the near future, Paonia Rotarians are focused again on fundraising. Paonia Rotary encompasses the entire North Fork Valley of Delta County.
As part of the fundraising endeavor, Paonia Rotarians are collecting a variety of exciting auction items for both its live auction, silent auction and raffle. A few of these items include a Joe Cocker Concert Tour Package including airfare and hotel, a one week stay at Cabarita Lookout Villa in Jamaica and dinner for four prepared by well-known author and chef, Gina Bone. The club is still gathering items for their auctions, so if you have an item to donate please call Jackie Parks at 527-4585.blog comments powered by Disqus
