The 57th annual Brattleboro Rotary Club Christmas Tree Fundraiser is underway. Since 1965, the Brattleboro Rotary Club has sold Christmas trees as a fundraiser for local student scholarships and this year is no different.
Vermont-grown trees of all shapes and sizes will be sold daily in front of the Brattleboro Bowl on Putney Road until Dec. 12. The trees will be on sale from noon to 6 p.m. on weekdays and from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. on weekends.
Members of the Brattleboro Rotary Club visited several businesses and nonprofit organizations to deliver 4,600 face masks as part of the Rotary Million Mask Challenge Tour. The tour traveled through six states and stopped at nine major municipal centers to deliver a total of 800,000 masks to awaiting Rotarians. An additional 200,000 masks were distributed across Connecticut in the spring, making the total one million.
Local recipients of the donated personal protective equipment included Brattleboro Memorial Hospital, Brattleboro Retreat, Garden Path Elder Living, Turning Point of Windham County, Windham Southeast Supervisory Union, Windham Central Supervisory Union, Youth Services, and Groundworks Collaborative.

Whiteclay, Nebraska borders the Pine Ridge Reservation of South Dakota and has a population of about 12. It is less than two miles from the village of Pine Ridge, SD, population 3,308. It is the largest Native American city in South Dakota and is the headquarters of the Oglala Sioux Tribal Nation. There were four liquor stores in Whiteclay that sold about 4 million cans of beer, mostly to residents of Pine Ridge who left the dry reservation to buy their liquor at these stores. In 2017, the State of Nebraska Liquor Commission did not renew any of the liquor licenses in Whiteclay. As a result, all of the liquor stores closed. A non-profit corporation, Whiteclay Makerspace, was formed in Nebraska with the purpose of buying one of the liquor stores and transforming it into a makerspace for Pine Ridge area artists and craftspersons. The building has been purchased, remodeled, and opened for local artists and craftspersons. An online marketing space is now open on the website www.whiteclayredo.com

Did you enjoy the Christmas lights in downtown Brattleboro? Rotarians strung many of them. Or, have you and your kids played on the disc golf course at Living Memorial Park? Rotarians built it. Rotary International, along with its various clubs throughout the world, has established January as Rotary Awareness Month.
