Rockwell City Rotary Club has awarded a "Citizen of the Year" award, for a number of years. Many deserving people have received this award!

This year our club decided that we should award a "Youth Citizen of the Year" award in each of the three SCC school buildings. There are a number of deserving students in each school building. Each  building's staff was asked to nominate one student. Listed below are the three recipients. We apologize that we did not get a photo of the High School recipient.

High School Youth Citizen of the year was Caleb Blair

The Middle School recipient was Hayden Stickrod.

The Elementary recipient was Reagan Lynch.

 

Each student received a small gift from Rotary and had their name engraved on a plaque to be displayed in each school.

 

 

 

 

Rockwell City Rotary Club and Mid American Energy Employees

 

Team up for Rotary District Grant Project

 

The Rockwell City Rotary club began thinking of replacing some rotting benches and adding a couple more new ones, approximately 1 year ago. Plans were made and quotes were received and a Rotary District Grant application was submitted. Three months later Rotary received word they had been awarded the matching grant. Proceeds from the 2022 Rotary Dinner/Dance were used as match money for this grant. The benches were ordered from Plastic Recycling of Iowa Falls. In November the benches were ready. They were picked up and stored until spring weather allowed for the assembly. A date was set to install the benches. It was announced and discussed at a Rotary After Hours meeting and Rotarian Brandon Lynch (also a Mid American Energy employee) asked if he could approach his MAE supervisors to see if they might help with the project. The following day Brandon notified us that this would fall under Mid American Energy CARES program (where their employees help with service projects to show their commitment to the communities.) May 3rd was the date set for the installation. At 8:00 AM on that date, six Mid American Energy employees and four Rotarians began installing 5 new benches. One in the Rockwell City Park, One along the sidewalk near Fareway Grocery and three near Golden Buckle Apartments. The project was finished before noon and after lunch the MAE employees worked taking down a rotting tree and trimming another, near the Park basketball courts.

Three rotting benches were taken from the Golden Buckle Apartment area last fall, and rebuilt over the winter, to be placed elsewhere around town. The wood was discarded, the steel frames were sandblasted by Champion Collision Center and then taken to McChesney Auto where they were welded, repaired and painted. Then new seats and backs were installed by Rotarians. They are now ready for placement. Thanks to all involved. This truly was a community project.
