Rotary districts mobilize to support survivors of Ecuador, Japan quakes
After a series of three earthquakes -- two in Japan and one in Ecuador -- killed hundreds of people, injured thousands, and caused billions of dollars in damage late last week, Rotary members in those regions have created disaster relief funds to help survivors. In Ecuador, the powerful 7.8-magnitude quake that struck Saturday night has killed more than 400 people, with 2,500 injured. Those figures are expected to rise. Rotary District 4400 established a service fund to raise money for relief efforts. Contact District Governor Manuel A. Nieto Jijon for information on how to donate. In Japan,...
Council grants clubs greater flexibility in meeting, membership
The 2016 Council on Legislation may well be remembered as one of the most progressive in Rotary history. Not only did this Council grant clubs more freedom in determining their meeting schedule and membership, it also approved an increase in per capita dues of $4 a year for three years. The increase will be used to enhance Rotary’s website, improve online tools, and add programs and services to help clubs increase membership. The Council is an essential element of Rotary’s governance. Every three years, members from around the world gather in Chicago to consider proposed changes to the...

Culture: Dinner for one
From the April 2016 issue of The Rotarian There is a new ritual in American life. It goes like this: Whenever you invite someone to dinner, you must inquire about any special dietary needs. Because today, it seems that nearly everyone has drawn a line around foods that cannot pass their lips. This could be because of allergies, moral qualms, lifestyle choices, health issues, or simple preference. The person might be a vegetarian who eats fish, a carnivore who hates carbs, a glutton who avoids gluten, or a time bomb waiting to be set off by a nut. (Asking ahead makes for a more pleasant...

The Rotary Club of Pueblo West has developed "The Flag Project" as a means to promote local patriotism and to help other not for profit community groups to raise funds.  When a resident of Pueblo West subscribes to this program, an American Flag is placed in front of their residence on the street for each major holiday during the spring, summer, and fall.  This includes Memorial Day, Fourth of July, Labor Day, and Veterans Day.  Organizations that meet the Pueblo West Rotary Club's criteria can sell subscriptions and then keep a portion of each subscription payment.  Please select the link below and you will be directed to a website where you can subscribe to having a flag displayed at your residence.
 
 

 
Fishing Derby – Huge Success!
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.
