Welcome to the Mountain Foothills Rotary Club of Evergreen Colorado.
P.O. Box 1918
Evergreen, CO 80437
It is a new year, Rotary speaking, and we at Mountain Foothills are moving forward in service to our community, state, the world, and Rotary.
We focus on doing the good work that all Rotary clubs do, but also upon these things that will make Mountain Foothills unique:
- We are a manageable size, and we we all know each other personally
- We have fun doing what we do and encouraging others
- We don't take ourselves too seriously
- Being an evening club, we are able to include a short social event each week and the post meeting meal is optional
Our Club is growing, and our projects are as well. If you have service in your heart, we want to meet you and describe what Rotary can bring to you, and you can bring to Rotary. Please join us any Wednesday evening.
Yours in Rotary,
Trent Winegar, President, 2012 - 2013

Salamanca Rotary Club wants a Sustainable Family Community
They would like to see it near three impoverished communities that they are currently helping.
The residents of the three communities have no jobs, no electricity, no running water, no sanitation facilities, lots of rocks, little rain, few crops and a very difficult life.

Even after we are gone from Africa, at home and getting back to speed (American speed that is) there are those that continue to work on behalf of Crutches 4 Africa.
The Need goes on, and so do the efforts of so many thousands of you.

We have come a long way. Although there is just a short way left to go, the effort is huge, and requires dedication and commitment to End Polio NOW!

Where are the orphans?
When I first started volunteering to help at an orphanage, I thought all the children there were orphans. It took a while before I learned that most of them were not. So when we help an orphanage by putting in a well, or building a school, or giving them clothes, who are we really helping?
While a few had lost their parents or had been removed from abusive families, it turned out that the majority of the children were there because the parent or parents were so impoverished that they could not take care of them. Some mornings, we would wake up to find one or more children who had been left at the gate. The parents knew that the children in the orphanage were eating every day, going to school and had people who would watch over them (or so they assumed).
With poverty being such a major reason why kids end up in orphanages, why are there not more serious efforts to address that cause? To create more jobs, teach job skills and provide micro-enterprise development so the parent(s) can afford to take care of their children?
The Sustainable Family Communities project is addressing that cause. We are working to create the businesses, jobs, training and community support that parents need to be able to keep their children and provide a decent quality-of-life while preparing them for their own and their country’s future. And you are helping us to be able to provide that for them.
We are doing the right thing! This week we received direct confirmation in the form of a meeting with Lynn Hammond, a Rotary Foundation Trustee and Past Rotary International Director.
We are moving forward, and have the thoughtful power of Lynn and many others behind us as the next part of our project gets underway.
Best, Bob Miller

It's almost April. The tickets have all been sold, and the barrel is still solidly upright, and was surrounded by ice fishermen on March 26.
