Roadrunner Food Bank - Food Drive 2015
Del Norte Rotary volunteers--some 20 strong--spent a busy two hours(November 21) sorting cans and packages of dry food at the Manzano Post Office in Albuquerque to help with the Postal Letter Carriers during their city-wide food drive for the Roadrunner Food Bank. The food drive is an annual community service project for the Del Norte Rotary Club in the fall.
Del Norte Rotarians Stand Up at Veterans “Stand Down”
Thanks to all Del Norte Rotarians who volunteered at the annual Veterans "Stand Down" at Noonday Ministries, a Veterans Integration Center event to help returning military veterans get back on their feet as civilians. A hot lunch, hot showers, bedding, clothing, and getting in touch with a variety of social agencies was offered veterans last Thursday. Del Norte Rotary was among several community and veteran organizations who served as guides and worked in the food lines and clothing area. Gary Williams headed up the community service event for the club, and other volunteers included Mike Creedon, Fred Bryant, Terry Boulanger, John Freeman, Ed Hughes, Marc Powell, Sandy Seligman, Scott Stafford and Keely Whittington.

Rotarian's of the Quarter
Del Norte Rotarians Brooks LaGree, Mike Creedon and Paul Christensen were honored by Club President Barbara LaGree on January 20 with Rotarian of the Quarter Awards for their behind-the-scenes care to two disabled club members, the late Jim Mehlberg and J.J. Jimenez. The trio were nominated by Past President Don Wagner who noted the many hours they took turns doing chores on weekends and week nights for Jim and J.J., “truly service above self.” Noted Brooks after the presentation: “There were several other Rotarians, namely Steve Becker and Norm Liss, who also spent time helping Jim and J.J. That is what the family of Rotary is all about.”

Global movement needed to reverse water crisis
This year's World Water Summit on 27 May in Seoul highlighted the progress being made: Over the last 25 years, more than 2.5 billion people gained access to improved drinking water, and 2 billion who didn't have adequate sanitation now do. Child deaths from water-related diseases dropped from 1.5 million to just over 600,000. The UN Millennium Development Goals' target for clean drinking water was met five years ahead of schedule. But for the 1.8 billion people whose drinking water remains contaminated and the 2.4 billion without access to proper sanitation, progress is still too slow, said...

Welcome back home, Betty Rae Francis!
Charter member Betty Rae Francis was welcomed back to Del Norte Rotary Club on January 27 as a Senior Active member, after a hiatus while helping organize another Rotary Club in Albuquerque. She was surrounded by some of her old friends, Past Dist. Gov. Randy Gleason, plus Maureen and Dave Anderson, who were her sponsors. Said Bettye Rae: “We were rather wild in the early days. Glad to see my old club hasn’t changed much since I left!” Bettye Rae served as Club President in 1998-1999.
