The Eagle/Garden City Rotary Club was honored to host 20 students from Pierce Park Elementary School in Boise for our annual Christmas Party on December 6, 2018.  Pierce Park Elementary is a Title 1 school that boasts students from a number of countries, many of whom are not native English speakers, who all come together to grow and learn.  Under the careful hand of Principal Chris Ryan, students learn to read, write, and forge friendships that will last them throughout their school years.  The annual Christmas Party allows the Club to share the joy of the holiday season with Pierce Park students, some of whose families are facing significant struggles.  With gifts from Santa and a visit from a real reindeer, the annual event is a fun and memorable experience for everyone involved and one of the highlights of the EGC Rotary year.
