The District Governor Visit

The Batesville Rotary club has again achieved the requirements for the Presidential Citation Award for 2021-22. This is the 5th year in a row of achieving this award. District Governor Lance Eberle was in attendance to share in the club receiving the award.

Without the members continued commitment to “Service Above Self”, achieving this citation would not be possible.

Rotary Help a Student Fund at SCC

The Rotary Club of Batesville gave the Southeastern Career Center a check for $1000 to the “Rotary Help a Student Fund” to help with any costs to enable students to participate in high quality Career & Technical Programs.

The Southeastern Career Center is the first Career and Technical Education Center that was built in the state of Indiana. In 1964, a group of very forward-thinking educators and business leaders saw a need for a bridge between Industry and Education and saw that it needed to start at the high school level. The Southeastern Career Center strives to provide students with a learning environment that integrates technical skills and academic knowledge, while also promoting work ethics, citizenship, and self-esteem.

Filling Backpacks for Project T3

Project T3 provides children in foster care or family placement in the Southeastern Indiana area with a backpack and school supplies. These children may otherwise show up for school without the required backpack or supplies.

Currently, Project T3 services Ripley, Dearborn, Ohio, Jefferson, Switzerland, Jennings, Scott, Jackson, Decatur, Shelby, Bartholomew, Fayette, Union, Rush, and Franklin Counties in Indiana. This year 1600 backpacks were filled with school supplies for needy children.

Between July 18 – 28, volunteers stuffed packs in the Project T3 space within the Batesville Area Resource Center. Rotary Club of Batesville provided volunteers to help fill the backpacks.

These packs are being delivered now to foster kids overseen by the Indiana Department of Child Services; One Community, One Family; Head Start 3- and 4-year-olds; children staying at the Safe Passage domestic violence facility; and New Hope, formerly Family Connections. Join us at Noon on the 1st and 3rd Wednesdays of each month at the Big Four Café, 121 Depot Street in Batesville to find out the other service projects the club is doing.
