Rotary district collecting relief funds for Louisiana flood victims
Rotary clubs of District 6200 are collecting relief funds to help thousands of victims after record flooding devastated communities in southern Louisiana, USA, earlier this month. Torrential rains caused rivers, streams, and bayous to swell, damaging or destroying more than 60,000 homes and killing at least 13 people. The U.S. Coast Guard and emergency responders helped rescue more than 30,000 residents from the rising flood waters. As of 25 August, more than 3,000 residents were still in emergency shelters even after the water receded. Donate to District 6200 disaster relief fund.

The 10th Annual Tom Sawyer Fishing Derby was a big success with over 350 kids participating.  A huge Red Eye shout out goes to all the Rotarians, the Jubic family members, and Parks & Rec employees who pitched in and helped out.  The Colorado Parks people and our Sheriff’s Department were also awesome.  A special 'Thank You" goes to Tony & Darcy Scanlon for hosting the Fish Fry at their home.  Please see the photo album farther down in the website.

PUEBLO WEST ROTARY DAY - OCTOBER 3rd

This was truly a testimony to the work of our local club.  October third was declared Pueblo West Rotary Day by both the Pueblo County Commissioners and by the Pueblo West Metropolitan Board. A ceremony commemorating these declarations and honoring visiting Rotary International President Gary Huang was held that afternoon at Civic Center Park.  The backdrop for this event included our Oktoberfest site.  Our own Jerry Martin, a man of many hats spoke for the Pueblo West Metro District and for our club.  Other speakers at the event included the Pueblo West Chamber President, County Commissioner Liane “Buffy” McFadyen, and Governor Hickenlooper.   President Huang toured some of our past projects prior to the ceremony and made remarks at the presentation.  He led the group in the “Happy Clap”.  Our president, Rick Clark presented a check to Pueblo West Parks and Recreation for $10,000 as a contribution for the new Frisbee Golf Course.  This was followed by the ceremonial First Frisbee Toss by the assembled dignitaries.  No one came close to the basket.
