Read Across America Day is a nationwide reading celebration that takes place annually on March 2—Dr. Seuss’s birthday. Across the country, thousands of schools, libraries, and community centers participate by bringing together kids, teens, and books!

 

What started as one elementary student wishing for a book has become a signature project for Spokane Valley Rotary.  In 2010, our club made a point of giving a free book to every student in the two local elementary schools whose students were most in need.  This past year, the number of schools has risen to six:  Trent, Trentwood, Broadway, Opportunity, Ness and Orchard Center.

 

Nearly 2600 students each received a free book!  The children's excitement was overwhelming, as was that of the Rotary members who went out to distribute the books, and in many cases to read to our kids!

 

This program is run in conjunction with "Read Across America" and with Dr. Seuss’s Birthday.  It is the ultimate goal of our Rotary Club to reach every child in every elementary school in Spokane Valley.

 
 
 
Its that time of the year again! The Men of Rotary Fashion Show is here and promises to top the excitement of last year's event. As always, proceeds from this charitable evening go toward funding Spokane Valley Rotary's charitable actions throughout the year, the two main ones being Books for Kids and post-secondary education scholarships for Spokane Valley students. Order your tickets now!
 
 
Come celebrate Rotary Day in Riverfront Park on Saturday, May 30th, 2015 between noon and 4:00pm and enjoy a free ride on the Looff Carousel! All ten Rotary clubs in the Spokane area, along with the local Rotaract and high school Interact clubs, invite you to join us in celebrating the positive impact of Rotary, locally and around the world.
 
 
 
The Rotary Club of Spokane Valley is awarding five (5) scholarships in the amount of $1000 each to students graduating from Spokane Valley and Freeman high schools based on the Rotary Club Scholarship Committee's scholarship award criteria. Students in need of financial assistance, who have been successful in school, have involved themselves in community activities and who agree to fulfill certain minor obligations to the Rotary Club of Spokane Valley may apply for this scholarship.

Since forming in 1947, the major goal of Spokane Valley Rotary has been to serve the citizens of Spokane Valley. We donated $43,000 to support the youth and elderly citizens of the Valley in fiscal year 2013. Our major fundraiser Men of Rotary Fashion Show 2014 focuses on the youth of our community with two programs. AND we are very excited to have Gary Stokes, Executive Director of Friends of Seven, KSPS Public Television as our master of ceremonies this year!

 

Our first program is “Books for Kids.” In 2014, our Rotary Club gave a free book to every student in six elementary schools in the three districts in the Valley during the celebration of Dr. Seuss’ birthday and the week of “Read Across America.” Almost 2500 books! Our ultimate goal is to give a free book to every student in every elementary school in all three Valley school districts.

 

Our second program involves giving scholarships to deserving high school graduates. These young men and women will attend a two or four year college or university or a technical/vocational school. This year we have awarded five scholarships to these young achievers. We hope to significantly increase the number and amount of the scholarships over time.

 

Our fundraiser, Men of Rotary, will be at CenterPlace Regional Event Center on Friday, October 10th from 6:00 – 8:30 pm. The show features 18 Rotarian men from clubs around the area as models. It’s a fun, even zany event. Ticket sales will cover all overhead costs. All net revenue will be designated to our beneficiaries. Last year $12,000. This year $15,000!
