President of the Rotary Club of Southwest Eureka Matt Nilsen (left) and fellow Rotarian Ron Harris sent a check for $37,000 to the Rotary District 5130 Fire Relief Fund last week.  The funds were collected by Southwest Eureka Rotary in a fundraising effort spearheaded by Harris to support victims and survivors of the devastating October fires in Napa, Sonoma, Mendocino and Lake counties.  Distribution of the contributed funds will be administered by Rotarians.   There will be no overhead or administrative costs—all donated funds will be used to provide shelter, small business grants, grief counseling and other services to those affected.  Contributions were provided by members of the Rotary club of Southwest Eureka and other Humboldt County Rotarians, residents, high school students and businesses and were matched in a dollar-for-dollar contribution by Ron Harris and Rainbow Self-Storage.
