Register online Today: Our "Spooktacular" Reverse Raffle is set for October 20th!  We will have a Halloween Theme again this year.

Bruce Bode donated a golf club "thingy" (actually it was a putter) for our reverse raffle and Ted Gilliland gave a disertation an announcement on the Vail Rotary club's duck race for rotary trivia as a step towards getting rid of his red badge. 

Every Rotarian, Every Year. ―"Our world is filled with conflict and strife, but I believe that fundamentally, people are more alike than they are different. I believe the underlying causes of most of the conflict and strife are poverty, disease, hunger, and illiteracy. The work of The Rotary Foundation addresses all of these critical needs. My annual gifts to The Rotary Foundation enable me to do my small part, and these gifts are magnified by being added to The Rotary Foundations resources to bring meaningful help to people in need."— Past District Governor Teree Bergman

We are excited to move forward with our Every Day Hero project and look to place the statue in Williston Park, NY.
