The Salida Sunrise Rotary Club was started on August 4, 2011. It is the second Rotary Club in Salida, Colorado. We focus on service to local youth, the environment and international service.
Our club meets weekly except for the 5th Wednesdays. We gather over breakfast from 7:30 to 8:30 a.m. at the Bounty Restaurant, 413 West Highway 50, Salida, Colorado. Everyone is welcome; you do not need to make a reservation. If you have questions, feel free to call Janet Franz, Club President at 719-239-0204 or Tom Hittle, Club Membership Chair at 785-477-3337.
We know how to have fun by participating in Community Service Projects like Habitat for Humanity, Junior Achievement, and kids Friday Programs. We have raised funds through our very successful Home and Garden Show (held in April each year), Coffee Sales, and have helped Salida South's Search & Rescue raise funds for many needed supplies. Funds we receive each year help college-bound students through Scholarships and other community non-profit organizations in the form of donations.
Rotary International was the world's first service club organization, with more than 1.2 million members in 33,000 clubs worldwide. Rotary club members are volunteers who work locally, regionally, and internationally to combat hunger, improve health and sanitation, provide education and job training, promote peace, and eradicate polio under the motto Service Above Self.
