Come Get to Know Us !!!
 
The Rotary Club of Evergreen is located in scenic Evergreen, Colorado about 20 minutes west of Denver in the foothills of the Rockies.  Founded in 1985, our club has over 100 active and fun-loving members who come from all walks of life and provide a diverse range of viewpoints.  Many of our members have founded or served key roles in other non-profits in the community and around the world.  We, quite literally, live the Rotary motto of “Service above Self” in everything we do.   We are proud of this record and believe our Club to be one of the very best anywhere in the world.  Please click on the About Us section of the menu to learn more about our club.
 
We cordially invite you to come and see for yourself what makes our club special.  We meet every Friday morning, 7:00 am, at the Evergreen Country Day School, 1030 El Rancho Road, Evergreen, Colorado 80439.   Venue Map

In early February, four Rotarians from the Rotary Club of Evergreen and their spouses participated in an insight trip to Guatemala to view firsthand the work of Starfish One-by-One, an organization promoting indigenous girls’ education which has long been supported by the club.   Jim and Anita Kreider, Janet and Fred Doyle, Rob Johnston and Pam Lepore, and Al and Barbara Steger spent several days in Panajachel and the other villages surrounding Lake Atitlan being briefed by Starfish staff, visiting Starfish’s new Impact School, and meeting some of the participants and their families in their homes.

Q: Where did you grow up?
 
I was born and grew up in Kenosha, Wisconsin on the shore of Lake Michigan with two brothers and one sister. My mother still lives there; my father is deceased. We attended a parochial school. While most of our extended family were dairy farmers, my father was a long distance truck driver and out on the road a lot and my mother worked at Sears. We had a strong work ethic instilled in us early. I had a paper route at the age of 10 as well as doing odd jobs and was working at a construction company by the time I was 13. I have always loved working with my hands and enjoy woodworking to this day.
Do you know what's just around the corner?  That's right Mardi Gras!!  And you know what that means.  Fun!  Fun!  Fun!  The third annual Rotary Club of Evergreen's Mardi Gras party is scheduled for Friday, February 24, 6:00 to 9:00 pm at the Evergreen Country Day School.  Mardi Gras is a fundraiser of the International Service Committee which this year has designated a majority of the proceeds for Carol Carper's fantastic work in Kenya.
 
We'll have plenty of jumbalaya and gumbo served up by our own Emeril Lagasse, John Wingate.  And of course, music, dancing, and your favorite libations all straight from New Orleans.  So dress up in your favorite party attire (don't forget the beads) and join us for the festivities. Come hungry and ready to party.  Friends and family members, and of course members of our neighboring clubs are welcome.
 
Tickets can be purchased on line at www.evergreenrotarymardigras.com. or from Linda Lovin lindalovin@gmail.com or Holly Brekke brekkeholly2.com for the special advance purchase price of $60 each.
