Rotary Gathering 5/18/16

We were tapping our feet to the awesome Guysotopes–a quartette singing acappella ‘Atom Bomb’ with two Quartet Smilejuniors from SCF High (Matthew LaMirande & Dusty Langeberg) and two seniors (Joseph Ward & Jeremy Cermin)–picture in order to the right.  They are a very talented group of young men who brought smiles to all of our faces today–we are truly grateful.

Eric Solland was in charge of the program today, he is the owner of Indian Head Glass, a very important member of our SCF/TF heifer-logocommunity.  He brought with him five guest speakers, Beth Friedrichsen and Peg Medcraft (Osceola school staff), and three OHS seniors: Brittany Newman, Macie Steffen and Mickey Gearin.  The young ladies shared with us thier experience in April attending Heifer International whose mission is to make strong alliances that makes sustainable changes for those in poverty situations.  It is an amazing organization that gave these ladies and aboutOHS Heifer Intnl 40 other students from OHS an experience of a life-time.  The students actually lived the experience of poverty and we heard their testament that it was very eye-opening and has changed the way they think.  Please visit the website (www.heifer.org) to find out more about this international sustainability organization in over 30 countries that is changing lives one community at a time through showing people how to turn hunger and poverty into hope and prosperity.  Thank you ladies!
