Pride and gratitude are the feelings that well up these days when I hear about Rotary service projects welling up all over our District for communities in need.  The Rotary Clubs of Roseburg, all three, have teamed up to provide Christmas gifts to kids in Glide who have lost their homes in the Archie Creek Fire.  Ten members of the local Interact Club and at least 20 members of Rotary are shopping today, December 5, to fulfill wish lists for 70 displaced young folks.

Nis Jessen, Fire Relief Governing Committee representative for the Archie Creek Fire, says that when Rotary asked about the pressing needs for families in Glide, this was the response.  When we ask and then we act to fulfill these needs, we show great compassionate leadership for our community and our members with a passion to serve.  Nis Jessen, members of the Roseburg Rotary Clubs and Interact Club, you make me proud to be a Rotarian of District 5110.
