Rotary Projects in Bear Valley

1. The Santa Program: for three nights, five Santas deliver over 500+ stockings and presents to the children of Big Bear Valley

2, The Senior Christmas Lunch:  On the first Wednesday of December the Rotary Club Hosts 400+ seniors at Pine Summit Salvation Army Camp.  There is music and presents.  The only requirement is that you are over 55 years of age. 

3. Free Dental Screening: in conjunction with the Dentists of Big Bear Valley, Elementary School Children are screened for dental problems.  Parents are notified of the result.

4. July 4th BBQ and Fireworks: One of the five best Fireworks Shows in Southern California is produced by Rotary in association with the City of Big Bear and the Visitor's Bureau.  The Rotary BBQ is a major fundraiser for each (normal) year. 

5. Halloween in the Village.  Two stations are set up in the Village.  One for the High School and one for the Middle school.  Both are stationed by students of the Interact Club and Rotarians. 

6. The Sweetheart Ball: Each year a special group is chosen to support.  The Sweetheart Ball is held close to Valentine's Day.  Funds are raised for the group selected.  It is a major event for Valentine's Season.

7. The Eagles of Excellence: Rotary recognizes outstanding contributors to our community who demonstrate excellence in their personal giving of time, energy, and influence to others with the community.  

8. Feeding those in Big Bear Valley: Through the efforts of several Rotarians in the Club, we have raised over $20,000 for Feed America.  Three churches in the Valley distribute the food that this provides.  It is estimated that each dollar donated provides 8 meals. So our Club has provided 160,000 meals in the last year to our community members.
