Many individuals have been generous with donations for the cause, and Girdwood Rotary was pleased to be able to join them in supporting the hard-working community leaders of the Girdwood Fire Department. Our club president CeCe Mendonsa was on hand to present.
On Friday May 15th Girdwood Forest Fairies put together a parade for Girdwood High School Seniors. The students walked with their families up Hightower Road to the Nissman Pavillion in the Forest Fair park where they were recognized with a small gift and individual graduation photos by local photographers Julia Martyn and Camille Jones. 

The residents of Girdwood lined the street along the parade route, keeping socially distant, but showing all the love and respect we have for this year's outstanding graduates. 
Girdwood Rotary was among the service groups present to help direct traffic and assist in any way needed to ensure this was a magical event. Thank you Girdwood, Rotary and the Forest Fairies who put on a wonderful event for our local seniors!
