We had the privilege of hearing from Karl "Willy" Winsness at our weekly meeting on September 23, 2015.
During his 17 years behind bars at the Utah State Prison for shooting and wounding a police officer, Karl "Willy" Winsness watched his two young daughters, Lisa and Jamie, struggle emotionally and financially with his incarceration. 
"They hadn't done anything wrong – they were the victims of my bad choices," Winsness, 64, tells PEOPLE. "The children of inmates are the forgotten victims of crime, and it really bothered me. I wondered for a long time what I could do to help."

It all started with one Kaysville Rotary Club Member reading an article in the newspaper.  This article to be precise...

In summary, Days for Girls (DFG) makes feminine hygiene kits, through sewing and assembling service projects, for Young Women in Africa and other third world countries who do not have reasonable solutions for the proper disposal and distribution of feminine hygiene products. The name of the organization describes the purpose of the kits provided. It allows the girl to get their days back. When they have these products they can attend school full time and get their education. Without these products they stay home for a week each month, and as you can imagine, they are constantly behind in school.
The annual dictionary project is a tradition the Kaysville Rotary Club is proud to continue.  All throughout the United States and other parts of the world, The Dictionary Project partners with Rotary Clubs and other organizations to purchase a dictionary for as many 3rd grade students as possible.  The Kaysville Rotary Club has made it a goal to make sure every 3rd grade student in Kaysville receives a dictionary to call their own. 
The Davis County Sheriff's Search & Rescue, established more than 40 years ago, provides the citizens of Davis County with professional search & rescue services free of charge 24 hours per day, 365 days per year. This 35 member all-volunteer team responds to calls for assistance in the rugged mountains and waterways throughout Davis County.
