The February Rotary Readers are Maesa Kuchera and Nora Killian, pictured with Rotarian Carole Mottaz. The students are holding the books that the RF Rotary purchased for them at the Westside Book Fair.

Kuchera and Killian are in Ms. Stacia Johnsons' fourth grade class at Westside Elementary School.

Kuchera, age 9, likes to ice skate and roller blade in her free time. She has two brothers.

Killian loves a lot of sports, but especially volleyball and basketball. She has an older brother and a younger brother.

Mottaz has been a Rotarian for 13 years and a Rotary Reader for the last three years. Besides being an active member of the River Falls Rotary Club, she is also involved with the Big

Brothers/Big Sisters organization. In August 2018, Mottaz was instrumental in opening BB/BS's new store, Sporting World in River Falls, which sells gently used sporting equipment with the proceeds from sales going to the Big Brothers/Big Sisters organization.

The River Falls Rotary meets the first, second and third Tuesday mornings 7-8 a.m. at Ezekiel

Lutheran Church, 202 S. Second St. The fourth Tuesday meetings are held at noon, also at

Ezekiel. A meal is served and all are welcome to attend. The RF Rotary Club is a service organization, with emphasis on our community's youth.
