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.
 
We cordially invite you to come and see for yourself what makes our club special.  We meet every Friday morning, 7:00 am, at the Evergreen Country Day School, 1030 El Rancho Road, Evergreen, Colorado 80439.   Venue Map

The weather was perfect on Thursday morning, June 14, as 82 golfers “teed off” in the Rotary Club of Evergreen’s 100 Holes of Golf at Evergreen Golf Course.   This was the fifth time the event has been held.   This year, golfers representing 16 charities participated in raising funds for their respective organizations, while Rotary picked up the the majority of the administrative costs associated with sponsoring the event. 
 
This is not your ordinary golf tournament.   Golfers came dressed as everything from Wonder Woman to turkeys to M&Ms.  Their tools of choice, “clubs,” were equally as far ranging including slingshots, rocket launchers, turkey drumsticks (I think that’s what they were), and even a few golf clubs used to propel the balls around the course.  Each team was given 10 balls to start the event and played 10 holes to get the 100 holes.   Rumor has it that less than half of the balls made it back to the clubhouse.
On June 18, the Rotary Club of Evergreen received notice of approval of its first ever global grant from The Rotary Foundation and The Rotary Foundation of Canada.   The grant entitled, “Young Mayan Women as Engines of Economic Growth in Guatemala through Empowerment and Education,” is co-sponsored by the Rotary e-Club of Lake Atitlan in Panajachel, Guatemala and will be carried out in cooperation with our implementing partner, Estrella de Mar (Starfish One-by-One).   The total amount of the grant is $162,125. 
Evergreen Rotarian Holly Brekke and Evergreen High School Interact Intern Lily Mott, have now spent two weeks in and around beautiful Cusco, Peru. This year, Lily launched “Lily’s Laptops” in support of the work of Peruvian Hearts and the education of marginalized Peruvian girls. The trip to Peru was an opportunity for Lily to deliver laptops, film a documentary, learn about Peruvian culture, and meet the girls of Peruvian Hearts. Lily’s Laptops garnered enough funding to purchase thirty laptops for the scholars.  Our International Service Committee aided in this effort.

In 2009 the Rotary Club of Evergreen awarded its first annual ‘Ethics in Business Award’. Each year since, Rotary Club members have nominated businesses and business professionals for the award that they believe comply with Rotary International’s guiding principles – as defined by the Four-way Test:
 
Of the things we think, say or do:
1. Is it the truth?
2. Is it fair to all concerned?
3. Will it build goodwill and better friendships?
4. Will it be beneficial to all concerned?
