Sports Program Committee Highlights 

Going, Going Almost Gone!!! 
There are only a couple of regular football home games left.  If you have not handed out programs yet you are really missing out! The energy, electricity in the air, competition, and most of all connecting to the fans as they rush into the stadium. Oh and an opportunity of Service Above Self!!  

Here are the last two regular football home games (prior to any playoff games):

Thursday, October 27 @ Caldera High School  (vs Summit)
Arrive 6:30 PM to hand out programs with game time 7:30 PM 
Summit is 7-1 and probably headed to the playoffs!! 

Friday, October 28 @ Bend High School  (vs Mountain View)
Arrive 6:30 PM to hand out programs with game time 7:30 PM 
Bend is 5-1 and probably headed to the playoffs 
Mountain View is 5-3 

Big Thank you to:

  • Michael Beek for handing out programs at the Bend High School Home game this past Thursday
  • Michael Cottam for handing out programs at Mountain View High School this past Friday
  • Mark Roberts for picking up the programs and delivering to the schools

So what do you say?  Sign up for one of the last regular home games listed above.  

Check out these fantastic opportunities to serve!

SLEEP IN HEAVENLY PEACE - Bed build day for kids
There are kids sleeping on the floor in Deschutes County! Help end child “bedlessness”, so all four Bend Rotary clubs are joining together on Saturday, October 29, and help meet the goal of building 25 bunk beds on that day.


  • When: Saturday, October 29
  • Time: 9 am – 2:30 pm (45 min lunch break)
  • Work 1/2 day or full day shift or whenever you can assist
  • Lunch and all necessary tools will be provided
  • Location: Aaken Electric, 1260 NE 1st, Bend
  • Volunteers may have an opportunity to help deliver a bed to a Central Oregon family.
Sign up here to help in the morning, in the afternoon, or all day.  Please print, sign, and bring this form to the event.   If you're unable to participate in the Build Day onsite, please consider a donation to the project by completing the donation form on this SHP site.  Please put the name of your Rotary club in the “Company Name” box on the SHP’s donation page.
Kids are the winners if we all participate in this friendly competition!
Possibly the funniest way to give back!
