Rotary eClub One – Back to Boulder WEDNESDAY APRIL 29, 2015 - Annual Dinner.

Each year the members of Rotary eClub One have a chance to have dinner together. Normally, that event is held on the Monday evening during the Rotary International Convention in the city where the convention is held. Once in a while we choose instead to have dinner in the city of the Rotary club that sponsored us, Boulder Colorado. And this is the year as we will meet in Boulder! we will also have fun days together prior to the event. You can sign up now for all these. Check it out by clicking on the photo.

Our District 5450 Governor Pete tells us that each club should participate in a “Rotary Day” to bring awareness of our service to our communities. Our District is working hard to improve Rotary Awareness. Our Return on Rotary project puts a dollar value on club service.

For example, several clubs collaborated on a Health Fair for indigent residents of Douglas County. Over 160 Rotarians provided health screenings to 360 individuals, a service valued at over $40,000. A project in flood-ravaged Lyons, involving 70+ volunteers from six Rotary clubs, two Interact clubs and one Rotaract club, provided a value to the community over $62,000. Not a dry eye was seen in the crowd acknowledging the service of our volunteers.

Just in the last quarter the 90 members of Rotary eClub One recorded 2470 hours of Service Projects and 248 hours helping local events.

Now, we need to tell the world! There are so many stories to tell!

We are proud to be the very first eClub ever created. Our members come from every walk of life and from across the globe. Most of us came here because our schedules didn't allow us to meet the membership requirements of our local club.

President's Message JANUARY 2015

This Rotary year is half way over. In the last six short months our members have done much to bring awareness to Rotary through projects inspired and implemented by each member all over the world. Many of the projects were funded by International and community grants awarded by Rotary eClub One.  Many were funded by the member.

Rotary eClub One is able to provide these grants using monies donated to our club when someone visits us for a make-up program. We can assure all those who have donated over the years, your money could not be better spent.

A)   We are able to implement projects all over the world; Most of the projects are personally implemented and or supervised by one of our members since we are located all over the world.

B)   With the exception of minimal banking fees, none of your money goes to administrative costs.  We are paid in the satisfaction that we have an opportunity to serve.

I will leave you with a wish for a happy and prosperous 2015 and a long list of the projects that have been funded in our short 6 months of this Rotary year. Thank you for visiting our website. Thank you for your generous donations. Thank you to all our members who bring awareness to Rotary through your example and your time spent helping others.
