Major Club Projects

Batesville Middle School Interact Club
The Batesville Rotary Club proudly sponsors Interact Clubs at Batesville Middle School and Batesville High School.
The Interact Club at BMS is open to students in 7th and 8th grades, and at BHS to students in grades 9 to 12.
Mrs. Shelly Prickel serves as the BMS club’s Faculty Adviser.  Mrs. Lisa Gausman is Faculty Adviser for the club at BHS.

We enjoy working with all the Interact students and appreciate their enthusiasm for serving the community and the world.


Batesville Sawdust DaysThe Batesville Rotary Club invites our community to celebrate its heritage and history of woodcrafting in this fun event for the whole family!
Next Sawdust Days festival: May 1 & 2, 2015

We were excited to introduce a new spring festival to our community:
Batesville Sawdust Days — May 2 & 3, 2014
We featured a kick-off evening wine tasting and concert by a swing band from Detroit, and an afternoon of booths, crafts, food and activities.  There was also a Chairs For Charity contest & auction, and the raffle where two winners each won an original chainsaw sculpture!
Thanks for helping us raise funds to support our local and international service projects.
2014 Sponsors: The Batesville Rotary Club, The Waters of Batesville, Batesville Memorial Public Library, Interact Clubs of Batesville Middle School & High School.


The Dictionary ProjectThe Batesville Rotary Club is pleased to sponsor The Dictionary Project for third graders in Batesville schools.

Each school year, beginning in 2012-13, our club has given a dictionary to each third grade student in the Batesville Intermediate School and St. Louis School.  The dictionaries are for each student to keep and use throughout their education.

Through this literacy project, we hope to help students to improve their communication skills and make the most of their education.


SB_USASince 2012, Batesville Rotary Club’s major International Service Project has been ShelterBox USA.  ShelterBox is the largest international disaster relief organization that provides shelter, access to clean water and lifesaving equipment immediately following a disaster.

ShelterBox instantly responds to earthquakes, volcanoes, floods, hurricanes, cyclones, tsunamis or conflict by delivering boxes of aid.  Established in 2000, ShelterBox has responded to over 200 disasters in more than 70 countries to date.

Each box supplies an extended family with a tent and lifesaving equipment to use while they are displaced or homeless.


Preserve Planet EarthAt the request of the Mayor of Batesville, the Batesville Rotary Club works with the city on “Green Committee” matters and, in 2013 we helped plant trees in Batesville’s newly-designed downtown area. Thanks to the BMS Interact Club for their assistance. Together, we joined with Batesville Main Street, the Mayor’s Youth Council, and the Batesville Beautification League to celebrate the city being named a “Tree City.”
