Next Sawdust Days festival: May 6 & 7, 2016

We were excited to once again present this spring festival to our community:
Batesville Sawdust Days — May 1 & 2, 2015
We sponsored a kick-off evening wine tasting and concert by the Hip Harp Trio, featuring jazz harpist Jan Aldridge Clark from Indianapolis, and an afternoon of vendor booths, crafts, food, activities and entertainment including three Comedy Magic Shows by Don Miller, and a Balloon Artist from FamilyTime Entertainment.  The Batesville High School Interact Club had their Chairs For Charity contest & silent auction, and the afternoon ended with a raffle for an original chainsaw sculpture!
Thanks for helping us raise funds to support our local and international service projects.

Literacy-logoThe Batesville Rotary Club is particularly dedicated to promoting Literacy as a Rotary Area of Focus. In doing so, we are 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 sThe Dictionary Projecttudent 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.”
