The BEST Day
Submitted by Cory Swank
The Groveland Rotary Club was proud to host the 2016 BEST Day event February 9th at the PML Lake Lodge. BEST Day was a longstanding Soroptomist Club tradition in the Groveland area that the Rotary took over for 2016. The theme for 2016 was “Keep the Love in Your Heart”. 29 eighth grade girls from the local area participated in this positive event for youth focusing on compassion, respect, tolerance and love of all kinds. Especially popular with the girls were the workshops (including the avocado facials, pictured).
While the girls participated in BEST day, the eighth grade boys attended a lecture put on by the Forest Service at the Groveland Ranger Station in Buck Meadows. The boys toured the facility, took a nature walk, and explored a fire engine. The field trip concluded with a hamburger BBQ prepared by Groveland Rotarians.
The Groveland Rotary would like to thank the participants, the volunteers and presenters for an excellent day. For more information about Rotary and volunteer opportunities, contact Cory Swank at 436-1800. Remember, above all, to “Keep the Love in Your Heart.”
As allways the 2016 Groveland Rotary Red White and Blue Ball was a huge success. The evening was a complete sell out. See photos below.
