MSNI Workday is Saturday Sept. 20
Calling All Rotarians — Our quarterly work session at the Medical Supplies Network warehouse will held at the date shown above from 8am until noon. You will inventory donated medical goods and repack them for shipment to Rotary Clubs all over the world.
Rotary clubs in other countries will then deliver the supplies to needy hospitals and clinics. This is not labor intensive work and will be a great project for spouses and family members.
The Rotary Club of Bixby is active in numerous community projects including:
YOUTH DEVELOPMENT AND SUPPORT
Third Grade Dictionaries – Eliminating illiteracy is one of Rotary’s key projects. Last year, we distributed over 800 dictionaries to 3rd grade students in Bixby, Liberty, Mounds, Glenpool, and Haskell. Each student receives a dictionary with their personalized nameplate inside.
InterAct of Bixby High School is a self-governing Rotary high school club. The students will
complete at least two community service projects, one of which will further international understanding and goodwill.
Rotary Youth Leadership Camps – Several students a year participate in Rotary Youth Leadership Awards (RYLA), a camp where students develop leadership, communication, and problem solving skills in a safe, friendly, and supportive environment.
High School Scholarships – Each year, three high school students are awarded college scholarships. Since inception, over $30,000 in scholarship monies have been granted.
Shop-with-a-Cop is a cooperative youth intervention program involving local law enforcement, Bixby Rotary and the Bixby Wal-Mart store. Youth are selected to participate in a Christmas shopping trip with Police Officers and Rotarians. The average cost per student is around $100 and is funded from proceeds from the BBQ 'n Music Festival.
Shoes for Local Souls started out as Shoes for Orphan Souls, a ministry of Buckner International. While the program has made a difference in many lives, in 2012 we realized that we could put the same effort to play and serve our own people througn the Bixby Outreach Center.
Bixby Outreach Center – BOC provides help with food, clothing and other essential services to families in crisis in our community. Our club was the primary sponsor that helped establish BOC and we have remained its primary source of funding since its inception. To date, we have donated over $120,000 to this organization.
Daily Family YMCA – Last year, our club helped the YMCA build strong kids,
strong families and strong communities with a $5000 donation.
Annual Christmas Parade – Hosted by the Rotary Club of Bixby, the annual Christmas Parade is held in Downtown Bixby, which is south and east of 151st and Memorial. A favorite holiday event, this community and family oriented parade features a variety of floats, autos, bands and walking groups!
Bixby BBQ & Blues Festival – Without question, this is Bixby's largest and most successful community event. Officially sanctioned by the Kansas City Barbeque Society, the Festival is truly the best barbeque competition in Oklahoma. From the beginning, the festival was designed as a "family friendly" event. There's plenty of music, plenty of activities for the children, and the best tasting BBQ on the planet. This event has allowed our club to funnel close to $600,000 into the programs mentioned above.
Belize Water Projects – We Help Improve the Lives of of People in Another Country. The District 6110 Water & Health Committee has worked for two years developing an international project that would partner with Rotary and Interact clubs in Belize. This project originated with the Rotary Club of Bixby.
Medical Supplies to Developing Countries – Thousands of lives in developing countries are being saved by the efforts of the Medical Supplies Network, Inc. Through M.S.N.I., Surplus medical supplies and
equipment are donated and shipped to 38 countries around the world. Members of the Rotary Club of Bixby sponsored the shipment of containers to Uganda and Belize.
Vision Quest Eye Glass Kits – People living in remote locations of developing countries have a difficult, if not impossible, time of obtaining simple reading glasses. This has a tremendous impact on their livelihood and quality of life. This project provides eye glass kits that can make 300 pairs of glasses per kit. This project began in 2009 and to date, 1600 pairs of glasses have been made available to people in 5 countries.
