Salt Lake Rotarians Judy Fang, Amelia Larsen,  Karmeen Kulkarni, Kyle Muir, Linda Kruse, Brian Berkelbach, Mark McCashland, and Teri Jensen had a great time serving dinner for the Lied Boys and Girls Club Holiday dinner.  This is our 4th year serving the holiday meal.  Teri's friends Corrine and Tony joined the group.  Mark's wife Trudy came too.  Thanks to Trudy's  culinary skills, we served a fabulous gravy with turkey and mashed potatoes.  Amelia also brought her friend Brandon Mendoza.  When you volunteer for Rotary service projects it is nice to include friends. It gives others the opportunity to serve, and it helps spread the word about the work our club does.
 
This dinner is always chaotic, and it is always fun.  A few of us joined in with the dancing game.  You might know it, when the music stops, FREEZE.  Check out Kyle's dance moves.  He was the last Rotarian standing. The Boys and Girls Club presented a brand new pair of shoes to all of the children.  It was fun to watch the kids receive this special holiday gift.

Amelia, Karmeen, and Kyle presented a check to SL Boys and Girls Club for $1000 on behalf of SL Rotary.   Amelia took a few minutes to tell the Rotary story. The kids know this money goes directly back into their club and they responded with enthusiastic applause.

Remember, SL Rotarians staff the Kids' CafĂ© on the third Wednesday of every month.  We like to have three or four volunteers attend each dinner service.  We have open slots for February and March.  Please contact Teri Jensen at tjensen@upbslc.com  if you'd like to sign up.  A few Rotarians have asked about bringing kids to the volunteer events.  This monthly dinner service is kid friendly.
