2023-2024 Rotary Accomplishments


Introduction: The Unseen Difference


“Do I really make a difference in belonging to Rotary?” you wonder. The answer lies not only in the meetings you attend but also in the quiet ripples of change you create. Let’s explore the unseen chapters of your Rotary journey:


Global Impact: Polio Plus and Beyond

  1. Polio Eradication: Through your Polio Plus donations, you’ve immunized 1,800 children against avoidable illnesses, including polio. Imagine those little lives now walking, free from the grip of this disease. Globally, only 5 cases of wild virus polio occurred this year – a testament to Rotary’s relentless fight.
  2. Peace and Stability: Rotary isn’t just a club; it’s a force for peace and stability worldwide. As a member, you’re part of the largest non-denominational, non-governmental organization with a concrete plan for a better world.

Local Impact: Nourishing Communities

  1. Thanksgiving Blessings: Your club provided 44 turkeys to the food bank, ensuring needy families experienced Thanksgiving with all the trimmings. A warm meal, a grateful heart – that’s your impact.
  2. Dictionaries for Young Minds: Working with local businesses, your club raised over $8,000 to distribute 2,300 dictionaries to third graders. Imagine those eager faces discovering new words and worlds.
  3. Rotary Foundation: Your contributions – over $7,000 – empower The Rotary Foundation. Water wells, restored sight, solar lights, nourished children – you’re part of these life-changing stories.

Empowering Tomorrow’s Leaders


  1. RYLA Scholarships: By supporting a high school student’s attendance at Rotary Youth Leadership Academy, you’re shaping future leaders. Skill sets learned today will ripple through generations.
  2. Student Recognition: Monthly, you honor outstanding students. Their potential blooms, and at year’s end, four receive scholarships for post-high school education. You’re investing in dreams.

Tiny Tims and Potato Fundraisers

  1. Tiny Tims’ Joy: Your club partners with Tiny Tims, building toy cars for disadvantaged children. Each car carries hope, laughter, and dreams across continents.
  2. Spuds for a Cause: Supporting the Scout Troop’s potato fundraiser, you’ve transported, bagged, and sold hundreds of pounds of spuds. And this year the club will sponsor a troop for girls to enjoy scouting! Simple acts, profound impact.


Enhancing Our World

  1. Park Benches and Learning Walls: Your club installed park benches along the Jordan River Parkway, inviting reflection and connection. In the Philippines, a classroom wall now fosters conducive learning. You’ve built bridges of opportunity.
  2. Field of Dreams: Repairs to the Field of Dreams ball field mean children, facing physical and mental challenges, can play alongside their families. You’ve leveled the playing field.
  3. Exchange Student: Through your unwavering support of Rotary and its programs, one of our club members enrolled his son in the world’s best and most successful exchange program. This decision will provide him with a life-long, enriching worldwide experience.”


Conclusion: Your Silent Symphony


“And the list goes on!” Indeed, it does. Your Rotary journey weaves a silent symphony of compassion, resilience, and impact. So, when life tugs you away from meetings, remember: You’re still shaping destinies, one unseen act at a time.


Keep shining, Rotary friend!



If it is TUESDAY, it’s Rotary!
