The Four-Way Test Essay Contest
Each year we hold a competition for local 8th graders to write an essay about the 4-way test and what it means to them and their life.  It is quite a joy to read these amazing essays and see the insight many of these young people have.  The 4-Way Test Committee will be meeting to read over and judge all the essays submitted for this year's contest on April 6th at 5:30pm at Pizza Patio.  White Sands Rotarians, please let our 4-way test essay contest chair, Bill Heithold know if you can attend at heithold1@tularosa.net

School Clothes for Kids!
Each year we get so excited for our School Clothes for Kids project.  Through the generous support of our individual members, the club and a matching grant from Rotary District 5520, we are able to shop with local children for the clothes they need for school.  This year because of an unexpected increase in the grant we received from the district, we were able to shop with a total of 35 kids!  With the help of our local Boys & Girls Club of Otero County we were able to identify families in need.  This year because of the large number of participants we shopped with one group before Christmas and wrapped up our second group in March.  We are so grateful to be able to do this project each year and we are thankful to all the donors and volunteers that come out in support of the children and families in our community. Thank You!
