GOLF TOURNEY RAISES MONEY YOUTH
success later in life, and that
means a real difference in the
life of children and families.
So Cool at the Coast is both
local and global. Over the past
six years, the Florence Rotary
Club has contributed close to
$25,000
to
Rotary
International’s End Polio Now
campaign.
Because of this worldwide
effort, polio has been wiped out
in all but three countries:
Nigeria,
Pakistan
and
Afghanistan.
As this effort continues, it
won’t be long until polio is
gone from the planet for good.
For more information or to

W
hat would the Rhody
Parade be without
the Siuslaw High
School Band? And how would
the band every make it through
all that marching without the
promise of Rotary hot dogs
waiting at the end of the line?
Cooking hot dogs for the
band is just one of the local
projects, many of them benefit-
ting the community’s youngest
citizens, that are funded by
money raised at the annual
Cool at the Coast golf tourna-
ment.
The sixth annual tournament
tees off Saturday, Aug. 1, at
Ocean Dunes Golf Links.
At 10 a.m., 136 golfers will
be ready to swing into action to
benefit Rotary projects in
Florence and worldwide.
For some of Florence’s
smaller citizens, the annual
Easter Egg Hunt at Miller Park
is something they anticipate all
year. Though it’s over in about
30 seconds, rain or shine it’s
their version of “Happy
Easter.”
Educational activities are
always high on the list of
Rotary projects, and funds
raised by Cool at the Coast
enable the club to create back-
packs that send children back
to school in style. Third graders
looking forward to getting their
dictionaries every year, deliv-
ered straight to their class-
rooms by Rotarians.
And literacy takes front and
center when Rotarians get
together for Read Across
America Week. More than
1,200 children in Florence,
Mapleton,
Yachats
and
Waldport enjoyed story time
with a Rotarian, and received
one free book for their home
library — every single child in
each of these communities
from preschool through fifth
grade.
Having books in the home is
one of the best indicators of
