Dear Rotarians,
Wow the weather has been amazing !!!  Mask/No Mask….who cares…we can see our loved ones and close friends outdoors !! 
We are gearing up for our famous Ducky Derby.  This is the way we can fund our events   and charities that support the work we do for our community.  Sometime this week you’ll receive a letter containing 25 tickets for The Ducky Derby.  OK guys….it’s time to get things going and let’s sell out those tickets.
Many thanks to Cathy, Cath, Randi, and Karen for meeting on Friday and organizing the tickets!! 
Kudos to Larry and the scholarship committee for reviewing the applicant’s applications and awarding 7 scholarships to local students in our area !!!

Thanks to Cassi Marshall and her daughter Carly, Camas Washougal Rotary has submitted an entry into the Environmental Sustainability Rotary Action Group (ESRAG) video competition themed, 'I Fix the Planet.'  Rotarians from around the globe have submitted 70-100 second entries highlighting an environmental project. Cassi Marshall's daughter filmed some of the ivy removal last summer and put together a video entry for our club.

Vote on the ESRAG site for CW Rotary entry One Tree at a Time at . You can also view many other phenomenal entries from around the world.  Share this with others.... and ask them to vote for ours.  (It takes about 30 seconds to create an account in order to vote....)  It was on page 4 of the entries and may move down as other entries are submitted.

Hearts of Glass

You’re invited to an on-demand viewing of the documentary Hearts of Glass June 2nd-12th. We strive to bring greater awareness of the challenges in finding competitive employment opportunities, within our community, for young adults with disabilities. This film follows the initial  months of operation of Vertical Harvest, a state-of-the-art hydroponic greenhouse that grows crops while providing meaningful, competitively-paid jobs for people with disabilities working alongside people without disabilities. The trailer can be viewed here. For additional information about this film, please visit
On June 9th, we will hold a panel discussion: Opportunity and Community Impact - Employment and Futures with members of the Washougal community, Vertical Harvest employees, and the director of the film. During this discussion, our goal is to bring together individuals who can speak to the local employment of individuals with disabilities and those from the film featuring innovative employment practices. The vision for this discussion is to align with the Washougal School District’s mission to Know, Nurture, and Challenge ALL students to rise. In addition, the district strives to promote equitable educational opportunities for all students, and this film provides a model of what is possible. It is our task as a school district to prepare students for successful post-secondary outcomes. It is our task as a community to recognize individual’s abilities and to work toward equitable inclusion into social and economic aspects of our community. We hope that this discussion will provide an opportunity to bring diverse perspectives into conversation about what is possible within Clark County.
 Save the Date: June 2nd-12th
