Our 2016 Annual Rotary Holiday/Christmas Party held on December 8th was a huge success on all dimensions! 
 
Aaron Marsh did an outstanding job of hosting the evening's events with a "big thank you" to other Rotarians Eileen Yeakley, Pat Asuma, Candace Falk, Kathy Ricci, Deb Nueheisel Smith, Becky Black, Bun Hanson, and JT Koser for all their efforts in planning and executing a wonderful evening.  A total of $3,380 was raised through the silent auction and a spirited "Christmas Tie Auction". Funds raised will go to local charities "Adopt a Family", "We Share Food Pantry" as well as the Rice Lake Rotary Foundation and "Polio Plus". We also enjoyed live music provided by fellow Rotarian Kris Longmire.
 
The highlight of the event came at the end when 3 prestigious awards were given to 3 very deserving attendees. The "Rotary Club Citizen of the Year Award" was presented to Mary Marsh (right), the "Rotarian of the Year Award" was presented to Eileen Yeakley (left) and the first ever "Rotary Pinnacle Award" was given to long time member Bun Hanson (center). Congratulations!!
