- The Dictionaries project is starting! Every 3rd grader in the Anchorage area (about 1,500 kids!) will be receiving their very own dictionary from our club. We will need about 10 Team Captains to sign up, so please let President Dan know if you can volunteer for this wonderful opportunity!
 
- Tabitha Karpow will be inducted into the club next week (September 15th). We can't wait to welcome her!

Rotary South Meeting News
Rotary South News - August 25th, 2022
 
-President Dan Newman will be auctioning off two tickets for two lucky people to become the "Moose Turd Bombardiers" at the next meeting (September 1). These two people will ride up with the helicopter and be able to toss turds to the ground! How fun!
 
- Tabitha Karpow is in her last week before membership induction. Any members with information or feedback on Tabitha, please reach out to the Membership Committee.
 
- Xander (exchange student) got to tell us how he made Varsity football at his first appearance for South High football. Congrats, Xander!
 
- We auctioned off 4 bags of Xander's homemade chocolate balls and raised $120 for him to make the most of his time here.
 
- Mike Ferris celebrated 38 years of marriage with the amazing Shannon Ferris. Congrats!
 
- We had an amazing experience with guest speakers Alex and JD as they taught us so much about free diving in Alaska. They even took three people (picture on the left) and taught them some simple tricks to help them with holding their breath. They more than double their breath hold times!
 
Dan went from 45 seconds to 2m 50s
Lauren went from 60 seconds to 2m 30s
Xander went from 60 seconds to 2m 20s
