come join me
August is great time for a lazy day of fly-fishing on the South Fork of the Snake River.  I enjoy my drift boat, quieting floating past and enjoying largest riparian cottonwood gallery forest in the West. It is a beautiful day in August.  The sun is shining with no clouds to be found.  I enjoyed Bald Eagles overhead and Cutthroat trout slurping flies off the surface of the water.
August is  also the month during which we celebrate our Membership and Extension in Rotary worldwide. Rotary is the vehicle many of us choose as a means of making a difference in the world we live in. Our involvement in Rotary gives every Rotarian the opportunity to expand horizons, enlarge spheres of influence and stretch our efforts. The key word here is involvement!  Membership in our Rotary Club’s brings opportunities for each of us to serve our club, community, nation, and the world.  
As Rotarians, “Service Above Self” is rendered in a variety of ways, and on a voluntary basis.  This year we are putting your commitment to the test.  Be One – Bring One!  Decide for yourself, right now, to be a part of this great tradition and “Serve to Change Lives”.
I  look forward to an enjoyable year of service together.
Yours in Rotary,
Governor Russell

magic valley beer festival
AUGUST 7, 2021
Join us for the 10th Annual Magic Valley Beer Festival where we raise money for local charity and projects while enjoying the finests the NW has to offer in beer. We are looking at over 40 brewers with over 100 different beers to try for 1pm to 6 pm at the local Twin Falls City Park.
We will have live music, food vendors, silent auction, great company and just an all around amazing event. There is a new feature this year with a VIP ticket option with a new experience with food and beer pairing in your own private area with some other bonus additions as well.  We have launched a new event website at https://magicvalleybeerfestival.com/
Tickets are $30 prior to the event and VIP tickets are $75 (limited number of tickets). We do expect to sell out so buy early. We are thrilled to be back at it following the pandemic and look forward to seeing you at the Twin Falls City Park on August 7th.

lobsterfest is here!
LobsterFest 2021 is back!  Given all the issues with Covid 19, it will be a virtual auction again this year, Sep 3-12, 2021.  There will be an in-person celebration event held outside at the Boise Riverside Hotel on Sep 11.
Do you need to easily raise funds with no upfront costs and a minimal club effort?  The need for Rotary and the things we do is more important now than ever.  LobsterFest is the answer with no financial risk to the Club and no out of pocket costs. 
Clubs need to commit to participate in LobsterFest by June 18th.  This means that your Club should do your best to provide auction items and to encourage your members to bid on the auction. We ask you to select someone in your Club to be responsible for obtaining auction items and to encourage Club members and others to bid.  LobsterGhost raised $125,000 for Rotary causes last year.  With your help, LobsterFest 2021 can raise more funds to do more Rotary good!
You can register your club and download the MOU for LobsterFest which explains the revenue sharing and distribution.
