Program for November 3: Lemelson STEM Academy & Panama Orphanage Project Update
Lemelson STEM Academy:
Jonna AuCoin is currently in her 8th year as the principal of the Lemelson STEM Academy. The Title 1 elementary school serves an amazing community with on average 450 students. 80 percent of the population are second language learners and 90 percent of the families live in poverty. Since converting to the STEM Academy, she has seen great growth in test scores, in student engagement and daily behaviors. Jonna attributes a great deal of the school’s success to their partnerships with Sierra Nevada Journeys and Reno Rotary.
Panama Orphanage Project:
Casa Providencia (Divine Providence Home) will be the first orphanage in Panama that is designed to focus on children with special needs. The facility will be used to meet the country’s greatest orphan related needs by providing full-time care of exceptional quality for disabled orphans. At completion, the facility will employ 65 staff members and house a maximum of 55 children.

To purchase Lacy’s CD go to www.LacyJ Dalton.com
The CD includes 10 of Lacy's greatest hits and the two Rotary songs she performed at the RI convention in New Orleans "We Are Rotary" and "This Close". Net proceeds go to Polio Plus. Lacy is a big supporter of Rotary's efforts to eliminate Polio. Many people don't know that her sister is a Polio survivor. Lacy is very supportive and appreciative of Rotary for all they do to make our world a better place.
Does your club need a new fundraiser?
If your club needs a fundraiser that is fun, a good value, and requires a minimal number of man hours to plan, then consider hiring Lacy to do a benefit concert. Unlike many club fundraisers most of the money from a concert comes from the community not your club members. Call Terry House at (775) 351-5514 or email Thouse@SilverLegacy.com for more information
For advice on what it takes to do a concert for a club fundraiser email fellow Rotarian at firstname.lastname@example.org.
