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.

Evergreen Rotarian, Tim Eagan, has been a one-man dynamo when it comes to raising money for charity.  More specifically, he has raised more than $18,000 in the past few weeks for the St. Baldrick’s Foundation, a charity committed to finding cures for childhood cancer, and has hopes of another $20,000 or more before he’s through.  But, Tim is quick to point out that he could not have done it alone.  He credits his team of volunteers.
 
It all began about ten years ago when Tim saw a television story about a St. Baldrick’s event on the evening news.  He was living in Highlands Ranch and decided to check it out.  So, the next year when he saw that there was going to be a “head shaving” to raise money for St. Baldrick’s, he went to the event to see first-hand what it was about. 
 
At the event, there were two or three little kids who were bald from undergoing treatment for cancer.  When some women at the event saw them, they immediately jumped into the chairs and had their hair shaved off.  Tim thought, if these moms can do this, I certainly can as well.  He did further research on St. Baldrick’s mission of raising funds for childhood cancer research, and soon became an advocate.  He’s been “shaving” ever since.
 
Evergreen Rotarians Ron Larson, Gretchen MacArthur, and Al Steger along with South Jeffco Rotarian Sue Davis and spouses recently returned from an insight trip to observe firsthand the work of Asociacion Estrella de Mar in Guatemala.  Estrella de Mar, the Guatemala affiliate of Starfish One-by-One, has been operating since 2007 to improve the lives of young Mayan women near Lake Atitlan in the Guatemala highlands.
 
The group began the journey in Antigua, the old Spanish colonial capital of Guatemala, for a few days of relaxation before journeying to Panajachel on the shores of the lake.  While in Antigua, they were briefed by Travis Ning, the Executive Director of Starfish One-by-One and son of Evergreen Rotarian and founder Ted Ning and his wife Connie, who met up with the group in Panajachel.
On the morning of February 4th, Evergreen Rotarians Greg Podd, Marianne Temple and Curt Harris stood on the summit of Mount Kilimanjaro (the highest point in Africa at 19,341 feet).  They were joined by Pat Temple, PDG (Utah) Monty Eggett and Dr. Don Weinberg and six young Tanzanian women on the climb: Elli, Martha, Aicande, Wajabu, Molly and Theresia.
 
“Kili for Kisa 2018” was the second effort with the first climb held in 2016.  The eight-day climb was sponsored by the Rotary Club of Evergreen and was held to support and bring awareness to AfricAid’s Kisa Project.  AfricAid is a non-profit based in the Denver area and was started in 2000 by then-teenager Ashley Schuyler.  The Kisa Project is focused on providing leadership and life skills training to Tanzanian girls in Advanced Secondary School.  All of the six Tanzanian climbers are alumnae of Kisa, with five of them  currently serving as mentors in the program.  The American climbers and other Evergreen Rotarians provided funding to allow the girls the rare opportunity to climb a mountain they see daily but only dreamed that they might someday conquer.
