Bringing education to rural Mexican area, one school at a time
When Mariana Day moved in 1989 to the small beach town of Chacala, in Nayarit, Mexico, she noticed that the surrounding rural areas struggled to maintain schools. And most children weren’t able to go beyond an eighth-grade education. Day, who is a member of the Rotary Club of Bahía de Jaltemba-La Peñita, in Nayarit, had started a local scholarship program before she joined Rotary. Called Changing Lives, the program provided students with high school tuition, uniforms, school supplies, and transportation. In addition, Rotary clubs from the United States and Mexico have been investing in the...

Summit in Honduras
The Rotary of Santa Barbara, Honduras had invited members of Summit County Rotary, Breckenridge Rotary and our Satellite club to come January 2-10 to work with them on school projects.  They are receiving a grant for $11,000 from our Rotary with help from the Breckenridge Rotary and Denver Mile high club to work on a technical school that they have built and support that gives education and skills to hundreds of students.  This is an amazing club that truly embodies service above self.  They have always been ready to help Summit in Honduras on all of our projects.  School in Honduras does not start until February and Santa Barbara Rotary would like to help some of the very poor , remote villages get ready for school by painting and working on their schools and also working with the technical school.  It will be an amazing trip as was the one last January.
Think about joining us, I have more information about the trip itself, costs and logistics.  Please get in touch; Maggie Ducayet, 970-389-7544

Membership Committee News

We want to thank all of those sponsors who are identifying community leaders/business professionals and bringing them to our meetings.  Remember, a Prospective Member should attend 3 meetings before turning in their application, sponsor form, a short bio and $100 application fee to the Membership Director, STEPHANIE KATZ or any one on the Membership Committee.  The application will then be presented to the Membership Committee for approval and then the Board of Directors.  Once approved, their name and bio will be posted in our bulletin for 3 weeks.  If there are no questions about the Prospective Member the induction will be scheduled.  

Once you choose to sponsor, the primary sponsor will be responsible to mentor the new member through the Red Badge process.  We encourage all members to interact with Prospective/New Members as much as possible.  One of the Red Badge requirements is to be a Greeter 3 times.  Because our club is growing and we are experiencing so many guests, greeters are so very important.  You don't have to be a new member to be a greeter.  It is just one more way of participating in Club Service.

Membership Committee Members are: Stephanie Katz, Julianne Gilchrist, Deb Irvine, Tom Marmins, Sandy Mortensen, Ann Clement, Susan Juergensmeier, Rolando Cuadrado, Peggy Beeler, and Doug Berg.






When you do business with a Corporate Partner, thank them for being a Rotary Sponsor!
