"I was interested in becoming an exchange student, so I started doing research on different exchange programs. When I looked at Rotary I noticed that it was really the only program that would set me up to have the best year I possibly can. I noticed that Rotary was great at preparing you for your exchange before you left, and I also always having your back while you are gone. Because I saw all the support that Rotary has for its exchange students, I knew that it would be the best choice for me."

--Laurel Bielinski, Southwest High, currently in Lucerne, Switzerland

As of August 2011, we have made 6 loans. Two of them have been fully repaid.  

Currently we are one of many lenders who are supporting (1) a group of weavers in Guatemala, (2) a tailor in Kenya, (3)a group of female tailors in Cambodia, and (4) a group of women in Cambodia who use their loan for farm supplies. All of these borrowers are working steadily to make payments on their loans and are repaying them on time.

Join us at a fun, informal and informative meeting. We meet every Tuesday morning for coffee, an interesting speaker and to help engage ourselves in our local and international communities. It cost nothing to attend a meeting, and you'll leave enriched. 

 

Our local initiatives include youth-oriented projects such as mentoring, providing school supplies and winter outerwear to kids in need, and high school youth exchange. We also make monthly donations to local charities, as selected by the club.

Internationally, we support entrepreneurs, sponsor scholars, and help with Rotary International initiatives such as polio eradication (Polio Plus) and its emergency shelter program (Shelterbox).

The doors open at 7:15 a.m., meetings start at 7:30 sharp and end promptly at 8:30, so you're on your way to work with fresh perspectives and new knowledge.
