The Tahoe Douglas Rotary Club recently held a meeting that showed the sincere generosity of our wonderful Lake Tahoe community. Club members and guests joined together to celebrate our collective fundraising efforts. The club continued its great 44-year tradition of community service with donations to 25 local organizations. It was truly heart-warming to see volunteers from these deserving organizations express their thanks and gratitude for the support. The Rotary motto is “Service Above Self” and it really does feel great to give back to the wonderful citizens of Lake Tahoe.

The Tahoe Douglas Rotary Club also recently awarded academic scholarships totaling $9,000 to 11 George Whittell High School seniors. Congratulations to the winners: Matthew Andrew, Casey Brumbach, Danielle Daly, Sebastian Diaz, Hannah Harris, Meri Johnson, Kathryn Komorowski, Jayme Lowe, Christina Richardson, Tara Scaduto and Zachary Witt. Each student completed a written application and personal statement. A committee of Tahoe Douglas Rotarians interviewed the candidates. The winners met the club’s grade-point-average guidelines and excelled in community service and other extracurricular activities.

The Tahoe Douglas Rotary Club would like to thank the Lake Tahoe community for its tremendous support at the annual St. Patrick’s Day Wine Tasting and Corned Beef Feed. Your generosity made these donations possible.
