Soldotna Rotarians gather each spring and fall to clean the road on Spur Hwy. This year was no different. Rotarians gathered and cleaned up the road along a mile stretch of the Spur Hwy.
It is important for our Soldotna Rotarians to make it to meetings. It is especially important to a Rotarian that has over 30 years of perfect attendance, Mike Sweeney.

The Soldotna Rotary Club, in partnership with the Soldotna ARTSpace, and the City of Soldotna, worked diligently to install an avenue for aspiring artists to showcase their work to the public.
The Soldotna Rotary Club continues to support the local D.A.R.E program. Ofc. Tobin Brennan is the D.A.R.E. instructor in the three local elementary schools. Yearly, Ofc. Brennan provides D.A.R.E education to 5th graders and then provided a lock-in/graduation event. This year, Soldotna Rotary Club was able to provide the grand prize to the winning essay writer on why D.A.R.E is an important program and why it is important to them. D.A.R.E. is an important program in the community.
By partnering with the Rotary Club of Soldotna, the City of Soldotna, the Soldotna Chamber of Commerce, and local businesses, Soldotna’s ARTSpace, Inc. is implementing a community-based public art program. Many of these projects result in regular exhibits and annual events intended to promote public art that enhances the Soldotna area in a manner that’s democratic and for the enjoyment of all.
Soldotna Rotarians joined forces with K-Beach Elementary, Soldotna Elementary, and Sterling Elementary to encourage students to read through the summer months. This fall the schools joined with Rotarians to recognize those students that read this summer.
The Soldotna Rotary Club was well represented at the District 5010 Conference held in Girdwood this year. We represented our Club, our members, our projects, and our fundraising.
To the Soldotna Rotary Club:
I just want to also say thank you to the whole club for first of all picking me and also helping me out with the support you guys gave to me. Thank you for giving me this opportunity, because this year has been the best year of my life so far and the memories will stay with me forever. So Thank you again.
~Anna
Beginning July of 2014, the new Presidents of the Kenai, Soldotna, and Kenai River Clubs stepped into their leadership roles:  Scott Hamann/Kenai; Jodi Stuart/Soldotna; and Diane Taylor/Kenai River.
            The three of us were able to connect at the District Conference meeting earlier that year, and set up a plan to establish a monthly meeting of the three of us.  The purpose of these meetings was to facilitate collaboration and understanding of what other Rotarians in our communities were doing. (The three clubs are within approximately 12 miles of each other!)
          
At yesterday's Club luncheon, we had two Kenai Central High School students talk to us about a spaghetti feed fundraiser that they are putting on to benefit the Students in Transition program with our local school District.
Soldotna Rotary Club has been known to support reading in the community through dictionary projects to RIGS (Reading is Great in the Summer) and now to SMORES (Summer Months are Open for Reading Everywhere). Recently, Soldotna Rotarians presented t-shirts to K-Beach Elementary students that read over the summer months and supported the first year of SMORES at Soldotna Elementary.

The famous Rotary Unity Run 10 mile and 5k race was hosted by the Rotary Clubs of Soldotna and Kenai River, and new this year, the Tsalteshi Trails Association on a beautiful July morning. Rotarians from around the central Peninsula gathered to set up the race, grill food, and have an opportunity for fellowship.

Soldotna Rotary Club contributes $5,000 to the Fred Chambers RAFT Fund to provide transportation and assistance to locals battling cancer.
Soldotna Rotary Club presented the very first “Serving to Learn, Learning to Serve Award “ to Amelia Mueller last Thursday during our Rotary luncheon.  Amelia is a nine year old who has been identified as having a heart to serve way beyond her years and therefore is the recipient of this one of a kind  Soldotna Rotary Club award.
