If either the Camas or Washougal School District announces a school closure for a Thursday, we will cancel the meeting at Orchard Hills Golf and CC and not meet.  We will hope to have enough notice to put out an e-mail blast to club members and to put a message on our website by 5:30 am.

The Camas-Washougal Rotary Club delivered 768 dictionaries to all 3rd graders in Camas and Washougal elementary schools the week of October 12.  Interactors from Washougal High School glued book plates onto the inside flap of each dictionary.  The book plates have a Rotary logo, the 4-Way Test, and a place for each student to write their name.  At least two Rotarians met with the students at each school to tell a bit about Rotary, and to hand out the dictionaries to each student.  The Superintendents from Camas and Washougal School Districts, both Rotarians, were also present to hand out the dictionaries at their respective schools.

The Camas-Washougal Rotary Club awarded $9,000 in college scholarships to 10 Washougal and Camas high school students at the Club’s annual scholarship breakfast on June 4. Four seniors from Camas and four from Washougal were each awarded $1,000 towards tuition at the college of their choice.
Thousands of yellow rubber ducks will race down the Washougal River at noon Sunday, July 24, 2016 to raise money for Rotary service projects and scholarships.
Now in its 22nd year, the event promises the thrill of a race, the pure fun of sports entertainment and the reward of knowing the proceeds will support Rotary projects, both locally and internationally.
The race begins on the Third Avenue Bridge in Camas, WA when a front-loader donated by Nutter Corporation tips its bucket and unloads nearly 5,000 plastic ducks into the water below. From there the current takes over and the ducks dash to the finish line. The fastest ducks down the river will win prizes for those who’ve adopted them.  READ  MORE >
