The “Read to me” preschool literacy project is your opportunity to engage with youth in our community to support early childhood development and childhood literacy in our community.
 
We have shifted our program, with the support of club members and the board, to a partnership with EPIC and their literacy program.
 
The club will adopt a classroom in a Pueblo West preschool and now we need your help!  As part of our commitment to the project, we will commit to reading to the class a minimum of once per month.  Each month, we will read a book to the class and then send every child home with a copy of the book so they may tell their parents/guardians about it and read it with them at home.  The goal of the project is not only to distribute reading material to kids, but to help them engage at home and create excitement around reading.  
 
We can read more often than monthly if we have the volunteer count.  Look for a volunteer signup via sign-up-genius in your email.  Volunteers will be required to complete a background check through D70.
Beginning January 3, 2018, The Rotary Club of Pueblo West will meet at Tocayo Mexican Grill & Cantina.
 
Tocayo Mexican Grill is located at
283 S Joe Martinez Blvd
Pueblo West, CO  81007
 
They are located south of the library in the strip center on the east end of the  building.  
 
Meeting times will remain the same, from 7:00am - 8:00am.
 
Breakfast will be served buffet style.
 
The Rotaract of Pueblo club has distributed over 700 coats so far this season to kids identified in Districts 60 & 70 as being homeless or not having a coat available!  This has been a great club project and is garnering great support from the community.  Thank you to those who have already supported this project.  
 
With the total need well over 800 coats, and the need renewing each year, this will be an ongoing project for our affiliate club led by  students and young professionals.
 
Remember, you can support the project by:
  • Making a cash donation
  • Donating new and gently used coats
 
 
The club is forming the committee for the July 4th event.  Volunteers are needed to help plan and organize the event as well as solicit sponsors.
 
The first committee meeting will take place at 8:00 AM on November 15th, right after the regular club meeting. 
 
Contact Andy or Jay with questions.
