December 7th the Fidalgo Island and Anacortes Rotary clubs held a joint holiday party.
We were lucky to have some fabulous entertainment. The Anacortes H.S. Jazz chorus sang five songs and we provided them a donation.
 
Our very own FIR President, Daniel Conrardy was part of the band that played.
 
It was a great time for the two clubs to get together and celebrate.  Want to see more?  Click here: 2021 Fidalgo Island & Anacortes Rotary Holiday Party to see who else was at the party.

The Covid pandemic has not stopped our club from continuing to reach out to people in need. Our own Dr. Steve Miller has made two trips this year to Comayagua, Honduras this year to work at and through the San Benito Jose Medical Center where he has volunteered on six medical/surgical missions to date.

Last month he acquired and transported $8,500 worth of medical equipment for our Rural Mobile Health Clinic Project there (Global Grant #GG1988687) along with former club member Bryan Hennessy (now with the Ferndale Rotary Club).

We are approaching the end of the first year of this amazing project evaluating and delivering health care to the poorest of the poor in the mountain region. The project is now very active and making significant village relationships and producing results, as well as delivering primary health care and gathering important data from the 10 villages involved.

We are fortunate to have young, newly-graduated physicians volunteering to go out on the mobile clinic. We are planning to start training village health volunteers (Salud de Promodores) and will begin surveying the second 10 villages in 2022.

The "Walk with Santa" Parade included the precision riding mower team composed of FUN club members. Even though it was a gray, wet day, everyone had a blast! 
 
Here they are...on your mark, get set, ready...go parading!
 
Is this the Grinch, or really a FIR club member?
