Flag Project
 
 
 
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.

The Golf Tournament looms large.  Many hands make short work of a big Task.  Please get involved and help out if you can.  As has been often repeated, this is one of our 3 crown jewels of fundraising.  Congratulations to the Scholarship Committee! Our two new 2015 recipients will be introduced at the June 3rd Meeting.  After a little anxiety, hard work and dedication paid off.  The Pueblo West Rotary Club  Recognition and Kick Off Picnic will be held at Lovell Park the evening of June 25th.  Save the date.  It will be a good time and allow an important “Thank You” to our past and future officers.  In addition, an ongoing discussion continues concerning a Club tour of SDS with Walker Ranches and the creek control works near I-25 exit 123 being the focus.  A final note, it was announced at our May 13th meeting that our attendance is up to 80%.  This is a great achievement.  Your humble editor attributes this to your dedication and to our President’s steady parade of interesting and relevant speakers.

Club members will begin the day with a general cleanup of the area and planting trees and other plants to replace those that have been lost since the project was initially completed.

If you were involved in this project, this is a great opportunity to revisit a cornerstone project for our club. If you joined after the completion of cattail crossing, this is a chance to put your own stamp on the park!

After the work is done, the club, and family will come together to celebrate 25 years of people in our community coming together to enjoy the company of fellow Rotarians while working toward the betterment of our local and international communities.

On 23 February 1905, Paul P. Harris, Gustavus Loehr, Silvester Schiele, and Hiram E. Shorey gathered in Loehr’s office for what would become known as the first Rotary club meeting.

Harris’s desire for camaraderie among business associates brought together these four men and eventually led to an international organization of service and fellowship.

Read about each of the first four Rotarians below, and about Harry L. Ruggles, who is often called the "fifth Rotarian."

Rotary’s founder, Harris, was born in Wisconsin, USA, on 19 April 1868. He was raised by his paternal grandparents in Vermont and attended the University of Vermont, Princeton, and the University of Iowa. He was Rotary president from 1910 to 1912 and a member of the Rotary Club of Chicago until his death on 27 January 1947. Learn more .

Rotary announces New Member Sponsor Recognition program

Image

Sponsor a new member and you'll not only strengthen your club, you'll also get recognized for your efforts. Through the New Member Sponsor Recognition program, sponsors will now receive a specially designed Rotary pin and recognition on Rotary's website.

Simply enter new members into your club's records and identify the sponsor. Each week, Rotary will send clubs a packet containing the names of newly identified sponsors along with Rotary pins and as many as four different-colored pin backers. The color of the backer depends on the number of new members sponsored, ranging from blue for one member to gold for six or more.

Keep track of the number of members you've sponsored by checking your My Rotary profile page. Gold-level sponsors will also be listed in the Membership Recognition Gallery, and if they attend the convention, invited to join the RI president for a special recognition event.

All new members and their sponsors must be designated in club records in My Rotary to participate in the program. Sponsors of members who joined Rotary on or after 1 July 2013 are eligible.

ThankYou Rotarians!

Over 100 golfers came out to enjoy a cool Pueblo West day at Desert Hawk Golf Course and to support the Annual Rotary Club of Pueblo West Golf Tournament presented by Sonic and Coca-Cola.  This year's tournament winners were 'Great Balls of Fire' with Kwik Stop and Tumbleweed Tavern rounding out the mens top three.  The Ladies Jubic captured the top spot in the ladies divisio while Janean Jubic took home the Ladies Longest Drive and Closest to the Pin awards.  Terry Hart won the ball drop with ball/ticket number 399.

We could not have a great tournament without our sponsors.  Thank you all for your support of this, and all our other projects over our 25 year history.  Thank you to the volunteers who came out to work to help make the event successful!
