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

Bell Ringers from the Rotary Club of Evergreen are out in number again this year to raise funds for the Salvation Army during this season of giving. Each hour the bell is rung, an average of $50 is collected to help our Evergreen neighbors in crisis with such things as medical needs, utilities, transportation and groceries - 365 days a year.  Bell Ringing began on the day after Thanksgiving in front of the Evergreen WalMart.  It's not too late to join in, just follow the link below to sign-up.

Thanksgiving came early this year for 165 mountain area seniors.  For the third successive year, the Rotary Clubs of Evergreen and Mountain Foothills joined forces to treat the seniors to a traditional Thanksgiving meal, including roast turkey and dressing, mashed potatoes and gravy, green beans, cranberry relish, a variety of rolls and breads and assorted pies and desserts.  All the food was prepared and served by a team of about 60 Rotarians working under the careful direction of Mimi Nelson, a member of the Evergreen Club.   Mark Vickstrom served as MC for the event, and kept the group laughing (and groaning) with his Thanksgiving "jokes" while the guests were entertained with live accordion music. This year's event was held at Christ the King Catholic Church, which generously made its kitchen and fellowship hall available to the clubs for the event.
 
The two clubs host the free event each year as a way of saying thank you to the Evergreen community, and to provide a fellowship opportunity for those who may be alone during the Thanksgiving holiday season.  The smiling faces and glowing compliments of those in attendance were extremely gratifying and made the hard work of all the volunteers worthwhile.

It was a great pleasure to interview lovely Ana Carolina Mendes Barcelos Silva, a recent graduate of secondary school in Brazil, now attending Conifer High School as a Senior. Ana Carolina has come to our mountain community from the heart of Southeastern Brazil. Since temperatures in her city of Contagem usually range between 60-80 degrees, she is looking forward to the experience of snow! You can be sure that this adventurous young lady will make the best of it. Her trip to Colorado was her first trip alone and the first outside of Brazil! Here are some highlights of our conversation:
