Salvation Army
The Mt. Baker Rotary Club takes to the doors of the Lynden Safeway to help raise funds for the Salvation Army.
Dick Bedlington reminded me that this year marks the 38th year the club has supported the Salvation Army with bell ringing.
Make this your tradition and come by on December 13th, between 10:00 AM and 6:00 PM, and drop a donation in the pot. 
Whether it is change from your car that you give the kids to drop in the pot, or check from the bottom of your heart, your donation will serve the needs of the community - what a great Christmas gift.
From 4:00 - 6:00 PM stop in and sing along with the Mt Baker Rotary Carolers - always a treat.  
We had a great time on Nov. 5th helping pack lunches for Open Hands
After a compelling presentation from the volunteers at Open Hands, a few of us took the opportunity to help pack lunches for the needy kids for the upcoming weekend.
The Open Hands program was developed to help ensure that children in our area have access to non-perishable and easy to prepare foods at all times, when other resources are not available, such as on weekends and school holidays.  Open Hands currently serves in the Nooksack and Lynden school districts.
It was an honor to help them, by extending a hand.
 
Mount Baker Rotary held its annual auction on Saturday April 17, 2016 and it was a great success!   Over $240,000 was raised which will go towards many worthy causes both locally and internationally.   As part of the auction, nearly $50,000 was raised to help Cornerstone Kids, a non-profit organization which provides orthopedic services to disadvantaged youngsters.  In addition, over $30,000 was raised for scholarships. Overall, a job well done and kudos to the Auction Committee, the Club, and to the Community for making the auction another great success this year!  
 

Nepal Orthopedic HospitalNepal Orthopaedic Hospital (NOH) was established in the premises of the Nepal Disabled Association (NDA) at the Khagendra New Life Centre in Jorpati in Kathmandu in August 1998.Its sole intention has been to provide quality orthopedic care, at an affordable price, of which most Nepalese have been deprived.

The Million Smiles Playground needed a big push leading up to its spring 2007 construction. Rotary primed the pump with a huge $100,000 gift to prompt others to give.

At the time, club president Frank Mansfield termed it the “perfect project” because of its scope.

“We are able to give back to the community on a big scale,” Mansfield said. “A large segment of the community will be able to make use out of this.”

A delegation of Rotarians went to Oak Harbor to tour a playground already designed by the Leathers & Associates consultants. “We wanted to see what it looks like and if it was worth this much money,” Mansfield said.

Then the discussion in the club was overwhelmingly in favor of going forward.
Construction of the imaginative colorful playground near Fishtrap Creek in the park made extensive use of community labor but still had hard expenses for all the material
