America's River Art Project

Rotarian and resident artist, Gary Olsen, previews and reports on the progress he's making on a painting commissioned by the Dubuque Rotary Club celebrating its 100th Anniversary and the 15th Anniversary of its commitment to America's River Project. Gary is known for his landscapes and cityscapes of Dubuque, Iowa and its environs.

Funds raised by the sale of these prints will benefit local humanitarian projects and non-profit organizations that are dedicated to improving the lives of others and making Dubuque a great place to live and raise families.

She is staying with the Stoner family this year and looks forward to many great experiences with all of us throughout the year. Let's get to know her with a reception at Catfish Charlie's on Monday, August 28th from 5:30 to about 7:30 pm. Light appetizers and cash bar will be available.
  • Humanitarian Grants: Applications are available through August 31st. Area non-profit organizations are encouraged to apply using the documents on the website.

  • Special Presentation: Larry Loeppke introduced our club's newest Paul Harris Fellows: Bill Jantsch and Tony Zelinskas. Congratulations Bill and Tony on your contributions!
  • RYLA Attendees: We welcomed 10 kids that we sponsored for RYLA last month. Each of them shared stories about how RYLA benefitted them. They certainly represented our club well and we are proud to have given them the chance to attend.


Dedra Tentis and Jim Wagner from the Veteran's Freedom Center joined us to tell their story about how the center came about and how it has impacted each of their lives. After hearing the stories, it's clear the center is providing an essential benefit to the veterans in this community. Jim also told us about the newly-formed bluebird project that is happening in conjunction with Whitewater Canyon.

Our annual golf outing and the raffle this year benefitted the bluebird project. So with the funds raised along with the district matching grant, Teri Fairchild presented Jim & Dedra with a $10,000 check!

What a meeting! Join us next week to hear about a new International Travel Club being formed in Dubuque.

In Rotary Service,
Steve Davis
