Rotary work party this past Friday. This crew started prepping the School House building for painting (e.g., scraping off old paint, repairing and replacing old siding, caulking windows). Rotarians Jacob Eide, John Loomis, Jay Smart and Marshall Rudolph spent the day at work! 💪 Jacob’s son Max also helped out.
Jacob lead the group and in the second picture is shown cutting boards for siding and another where he’s in the bell tower trying to restore the bell’s functioning.

Hi all!
 
On behalf of the Rotary Clubs of Bishop and Bishop Sunrise, we are inviting you to share this year's application with 2024 graduating seniors. Applications will be due on April 28 and students can complete the application using this link. Students are required to upload additional information, including FASFA and transcripts to be considered.
 
Our scholarship committee will meet in mid May to make selections. Last year, we awarded $25,000 to Owens Valley students and have the same amount of funds to distribute this year.  Please provide details about your school's award presentations so that if a student from your school receives an award we are aware of the date and location.
 
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact Bernadette via email bernadettelovato@gmail.com or via phone at 928-486-2562.
