Putting smiles on the faces of Kindergarteners!
StoryThumbnail
On August 16th, the day before school started, Standard and Beardsley School District Kindergarteners and their parents met their teachers!  Their day was made even more special when they received the backpacks donated by Bakersfield North Rotary Foundation and Chevron.  These smiles are the reason that the Kindergarten Roundup continues to be a favorite project of Bakersfield North Rotarians!

BNR FOUNDATION INVESTMENT
The Foundation partnered with the local Boys & Girls Club by investing $5000.00 in the purchase of a cargo van for their daily meal delivery program.  School-age children in after-school programs from Beardsley to Lamont receive a daily healthy supper prepared at the Club’s kitchen.  The van is on the road from 1:00-5:00 and delivered 12000 meals in September.  This is a great example of a Service Club and Non-Profit forming a partnership to benefit the community

Sheri Horn-Bunk has to share her 29th birthday with others…but she’s doing in style in Oregon!  Sheri made a generous donation to the Foundation!
 
Tom MacIntosh (A.K.A. Ask MacIntosh) was put on the spot just for being him.
 
Jennifer Pitcher came home from Italy a certified chef and with very little Euros in her pocket.  However, she reached down deep in that big ol’ purse and found something for the Foundation

PROGRAMS
Jacob Slayton, Director of Operations for Goodwill Industries presented a craft talk today.  Goodwill was established in 1912 as a vehicle for donated clothes to be repaired and sold. Our local Goodwill Agency is very similar to a franchise.  Goodwill not only offers the public an affordable inventory and an opportunity for tax-deductible donations, but focuses on full time opportunities for people with barriers to employment.  Their Mission Services Department focuses on placement services for clients with disabilities.  We are so fortunate to have Jake as part of our Rotary Club…now bring us some Jake’s Cake!!!

Under the direction of BNR member Kevin Silberberg, Superintendent for Standards School District, Kirk Hessler, Teresa Ford, Lee Meyer, Garret Randolph and Deanna Blaise were all in attendance to deliver more than 400 books.  The morning delivery began at Standard Elementary, then Highland Elementary, and finally Wingland Elementary. Every second grader received two books titled, Bones and the Dinosaur Mistery and Bones and the Roller Coaster Mystery, authored by David Adler.

The children were very excited to receive the books and BNR members encouraged the students to enjoy the books and continue reading through the summer. BNR hopes to continue this endeavor next year and continue to support second grade reading.
