Rotary Updates:    
Youth Exchange: The year of having our exchange student is coming to an end.  Juan will be leaving within the next month.  At our July 24 meeting, we will have the opportunity to say our goodbyes. Look for more info. in the weekly meeting reminders.
Scholarship Raffle: This is our largest fundraiser, proceeds go directly to the $10,000 we give away in scholarships. Once these tickets are printed, we need all members to sell as many as we can to fund the scholarships we give away.  
Taste of Portage: Annual Taste of Portage will be held Friday, Aug. 25 and Saturday, Aug. 26. We will again have a concession booth and a raffle ticket selling booth.  Please mark your calendar and plan to bring your family to help at this event. We need all hands on deck. This is a great way to have our club be present in the community, gain club membership, generate proceeds to give back to the community, and have fun. The final event at the Taste is our grand prize drawing, which will be held at 4:00 pm on Saturday.

2017 Portage Rotary's

Scholarship Winners!

Throughout the year, our Portage Rotary club raises money to invest in our future leaders. Our largest fundraiser for this is through our annual raffle ticket sales.  Each spring, the Rotary Club of Portage, provides $10,000 in scholarships to be awarded to three Portage High School seniors. It is estimated that the Portage Club has awarded close to $500,000 of scholarships over the years. The 2017 scholarships were awarded to three incredible and deserving students.  Portage Rotary is proud to be investing in their futures!

The $7,000 scholarship was awarded to Brielle Shortreed. 

The $2,000 scholarship was divided into two and $1,000 was awarded to each sibling, Emily Brost and Jacob Brost. 

The $1,000 scholarship was awarded to Samantha Smith.

Our Annual Rotary Scholarship Raffle Ticket Sales will be held this summer. Winners will be announced at the Taste of Portage at 4:00pm on Saturday, August 26, 2017.
