Tune in May 13, 2021 at 6:00 PM PST and Watch the Scholarship Awards Presentation
 

Rob Globus, President of the Rotary Club of Walnut Grove will be presenting our club Scholarships to Delta High School students in multiple categories.  To achieve a RCWG scholarship, a student completes an application and interviews with their school counselors and the RCWG Scholarship committee, chaired by Dave Stirling.  Some of these achieving students are the first in their families to attend college or trade schools.

Proudly, all Memorial Scholarships have been funded in memory of a beloved family member or business associate, and most graduated from Delta High School in years passed.

Tune in on May 13, 2021 at 6:00 PM PST to find out the Scholarship Award Winners!

Walnut Grove Rotary Scholarship Committee:
Interviews Delta High School Seniors for College Scholarships

 

For many years in late Spring, Walnut Grove Rotary’s Scholarship Committee has gathered at Delta High School to interview senior students for college scholarships. Prior to the interviews seniors must submit an application and write an essay describing his/her scholastic achievement, financial need, character, personal desire to better themselves, and any other information they feel makes them a worthy candidate to receive a WG Rotary scholarship. Over the years Walnut Grove Rotary has awarded a great many scholarships to public or private colleges/universities and community colleges, totaling many thousands
of dollars.

Scholarship interviews will be different this year only in that they will be via ZOOM. The scholarship committee members look forward each year to interviewing and listening to each senior applicant tell her/his story. And when the time is over, the members all agree “What a great experience it was.”  Each wants to be on the committee again next year.

Welcome!  Survey Open NOW through June 4, 2021

(Note: to take this survey in Spanish, please click here.)

The Delta Protection Commission is working on developing a Master Plan for the Great California Delta Trail. This project is exploring ways to link trail systems from Sacramento to the San Francisco Bay. What that looks like and the type of recreational activities that are recommended will be determined by the needs and interests of the communities that live, work, and play in the Delta.

This survey is focused on finding out what you would like the Delta Trail to be: what it should connect, how you would like to use it, and more. 

You can find out more about the Master Plan process here. We estimate that this survey should take approximately 5 minutes. We will close the survey on June 4, 2021. 

Thank you for taking the time to share your thoughts!

Town Hall Meetings about School Closures are Finished

You can contact Principle, Carrie Norris, Anytime! 
 
Schools that have been discussed for possible consolidation/closure are Bates, Riverview Middle, and Walnut Grove. While I feel very strongly that it is unlikely for the board to close Walnut Grove School based on the data they have been presenting at the board meetings, it is still on the table. It is very important that our community come out and have their voice heard at these community forum meetings.   I strongly encourage your participation. CLICK HERE!  For the Walnut Grove School Promo Booklet.  I would love your feedback on it.  Talk to you soon.  Please call me at 916-776-1844 or 916-333-4409 with any questions or drop by anytime. You are always welcome.  Carrie Norris
