This year the Aman Virk Memorial golf tournament raised over $11,700 – a big thank you to both the Club members and the Community for their support. A job very well done!


Golden Rotary's first ever Short Term Youth Exchange.

Alysha Clark and Joana Sabartés Crosas had left for Spain.



The Rotary Youth Exchanges gives a young person the opportunity of a lifetime. By exposing our youth to new cultures and customs we promote global understanding and peace.

But it's not just the Exchange Students who benefit - the Rotary Club and host families get the opportunity for some new experiences, new perspectives and lasting friendships.

For those host families with children, hosting an Exchange Student provides an incredible opportunity for children to experience new cultures and languages, while often creating lifelong friendships - all from the comfort of their own home.


District 5080 has just entered the Rotary Friendship Exchange video contest. 
Greg and Kristie Ehman just returned from a remarkable Rotary Friendship Exchange to Pakistan.  This incredible experience helped create new friends, bridge cultures and develop ideas for new projectsImage



Golden can look forward to the Annual Rotary Silent Auction in May, District 5080 District Conference in June and the most anticipated annual event in Golden, the Aman Virk Memorial Golf Tournament in July.


A huge thank you to the community of Golden for making the Rotary Gala such a successful event. Initial estimates are that we raised over $12,000 in support of the Early Learning and Care Center. Many thanks to all the people and businesses that contributed. A special thanks to all the Rotarian's that made the event so successful.

A very special thank you to Jon Wilsgard for taking on and as always, delivering in the role of Master of Ceremonies.

Golden truly is an incredible community
