President of the Rotary Club of Rapid City, Ashok Kumar, presents a check to well-known Lakota artist, Andrea Two Bulls, receiving two beautiful paintings she created for OneHeart at the request of the Rotary Club. Nicky holds the eagle on behalf of OneHeart.
The gift of the paintings, valued at $1000, is part of a financial commitment the Noon Rotary Club has made to OneHeart and its affiliated organization, Ride to Work, which provides transportation for clients between their home and the job site.
In The Year of COVID, the Club has gifted money and artwork totaling over $3,000 in value to these two agencies alone, in addition to more than $15,000 donated to, among others, YFS, Rural America Initiatives, the Cornerstone Women’s and Children’s Center, and Feeding South Dakota.

White Clay Makerspace Project

 
On Friday the 5th, Rapid city Rotary club Rotarians: Ashok, Richard, Cathy, and John helped clean the woodshop in the white clay maker space. John donated the table saw for the woodshop, and Keith Johnson donated a device to help assemble photo frames.
After completing the work, they went to the Singing Horse Trading post and met with Rosie, Alyssa, and Jessica. They picked up artwork to donate to SDPB BH studio and for the District raffle. They also had a zoom call with Nicky Lucerno from One Heart to help them pick up the art/craftwork they would like to have.
Read on to learn about Ester's interests, family and life as a Standard 1 student at St Jude’s.
 
 
The School of St Jude is one of the Rotary’s ongoing success stories. Since the beginning of The School of St Jude’s, Rotary and Rotarians have given endless support. Many Rotary contributions are providing long-term benefits to the school including sponsoring students, water storage tanks, half of our school buses and the solar water heaters for our boarding houses.
 
 
We meet at Story Book Island Parking lot evry 3rd Saturday for a walk, weather permitting.
