The Fremont Rotary Club held the December 92019 meeting at the Fremont Country Club.  President Roger Kuns opened the meeting welcoming guests and committee reports.  The Rotary Club recognized Students of the Month from Fremont Ross, St Joseph Central Catholic and Vanguard Career & Tech Center for the month of September.  Past President Pam Hoesman provided information about the Rotary Literacy Program.  This program provides books and volunteer readers to each kindergarten, first and second grade class in Fremont City Schools.  The books content is aligned with the current topic and curriculum being taught in each class.  This is provided in 14 classrooms.  Chris Ward, Principal at Atkinson Elementary and Ava Bolton a 3rd grade student at Atkinson Elementary spoke about the success of the Rotary Literacy Program.  The next Student of the Month Recognition is on Monday October 14th

Hello my name is Ava Bolton and I am a third grade student in Mrs. Garcia's class.  I wanted to share a quick thank you for reading to me since kindergarten.
 
The first thing I would like to say is thank you so much for coming into my classes for the past three years and reading to my classmates and me.  It was really nice of you to do that and it really helped me get better at reading.  I feel it is really important for students like to me to see someone model the love of reading as I enjoy reading.
 
I also believer it helped other kids get better at reading too because of you coming in each month.  I also want to say thank you for having me here and inviting me to lunch.  We hope to see you continue to read to students in our school.

Thank You for supporting M.E.S.A.
 
Since the 2019 M.E.S.A. Bike Tour things have been happening that you need to know about. M.E.S.A. has purchased a larger truck with a lift gate.  In the past it was necessary to rent a truck to obtain large shipments of medical equipment.  Also a committee was formed to discuss additional funding for M.E.S.A.
Several ideas were proposed.  It was decided that the traditional Bike Tour was necessary for funding M.E.S.A..
 
Bonus Rides were discussed as a way to supplement funding for M.E.S.A. Toledo Rotary Club has sponsored a Bonus Ride for the past two years.  Matching funds have been available for these rides from a Toledo Rotarian.  This is a 2 for 1 match.  For every one dollar we raise we can receive two dollars.  There are some rules for the match: (1). $5 per mile maximum; (2). $100 per rider maximum; (3). $5,000 per event maximum; (4). Six events per year.
 
The catch is that   …(A.) we need to schedule rides in six areas of our district.  We also need to promote the rides to get riders to participate at these events!   ...(B.) To get the maximum ($100) match a rider must donate $50 dollars and ride 20 miles. $5/mile X 20 miles.   …(C.) We would need fifty riders to reach the maximum of $5,000 per event.  
The advantage of such event is that we do not need to schedule overnight hosts or shuttle service for day riders.  We do not need a M.E.S.A. truck or ambulance to follow us on the road. 
 
Bucyrus Rotary Club is scheduling the next Bonus Ride on September 28,2019.  Registration will start at 8 AM to 10 AM at Aumiller Park Friendship Pavilion. Breakfast and Lunch will be provided.  They have suggested a $25.00 donation to M.E.S.A.  I am suggesting that M.E.S.A. riders donate $50.00 (if possible) to reach the maximum bonus-match of $100. 
 
Please join me on September 28, 2019 in Bucyrus.  Help M.E.S.A. grow by utilizing the Bonus Dollars!
