Come Get to Know Us
The Rotary Club of Evergreen is located in scenic Evergreen, Colorado about 20 minutes west of Denver in the foothills of the Rockies.  Founded in 1985, our club has over 100 active and fun-loving members who come from all walks of life and provide a diverse range of viewpoints.  Many of our members have founded or served key roles in other non-profits in the community and around the world.  We, quite literally, live the Rotary motto of “Service above Self” in everything we do.   We are proud of this record and believe our Club to be one of the very best anywhere in the world.  Please click on the About Us section of the menu to learn more about our club.

Sue Brown interview with fellow Rotarian Janee Meyers on July 27, 2016
 
Q: Where did you grow up?
 
I was born in Lincoln, Nebraska. I grew up in Grand Island, Nebraska. My parents encouraged my brother and I to be responsible and capable. For example, I was not permitted to drive until I could do my own oil changes and rotate the tires!
 
Q: Did you play sports?
 
I was not athletic in high school and did not participate in sports.  I did do well and enjoyed participating on the speech team.
 
 
 
On August 19, Merrill Glustrom of the Boulder Rotary Club gave a short talk and announcement to our club. Merrill and Jim Rudosky are encouraging folks to join a Rotary Action Group called ESRAG that is concerned with environmental issues. There is no obligation for joining, and the more who join, the more likely we can accomplish our goals  In the spring, Jim and Merrill are planning a symposium for ESRAG in the greater Denver area. They hope you can come! Here’s the website where you find out about ESRAG and join up: http://esrag.org.
 

 

Loveland Pass, Colorado:  
 
Travelers stopping to view the beauty and have their pictures taken by the sign that proclaims Loveland Pass – Elevation 11,990 Ft. – Continental Divide, may have been surprised at the large gathering of well-prepared hikers assembling at the West Ridge trail head one Saturday morning in July.  Over twenty members of Rotary Clubs, families, and friends walked the trail leading to what is becoming known locally as “Rotary Peak.” This 12,479’ peak is located on the Continental Divide Trail 1.5 miles west of Loveland Pass.
 
 
On August 12, Greg Podd, a Director and past Vice President of Rotary International, and a member of the Rotary Club of Evergreen, regaled us with his adventures of the last three years with RI.  In his entertaining presentation, he shared insights of the inner workings of RI, stories of his exploits around the world, and personal experiences with past RI Presidents.  This is a must see video for all Rotarians.  Enjoy!
