otary isn’t just a club for people to join, but rather “an invitation to endless opportunities,” said Holger Knaack, who became Rotary International president on 1 July. He emphasized that Rotary creates pathways for members to improve their lives and the lives of those they help through service projects. Rotary International is a global network of 1.2 million members.  Rushmore Rotary is a local club composed of inspired individuals who translate their passions into relevant social causes to change lives in our community.
Rushmore Rotary Meetings will be held virtually at 7am using ZOOM until further notice.  Each member should receive an email invite. 
Invite potential new members to join us!   Grab a cup of coffee and log in...hope to see you soon.
Thank you Rushmore Rotarians for your contributions to Happy Dollars over the years -- allowing our club to contribute to eliminating polio.  Our club contributes $40/member/year under the Polio Plus campaign.  World Polio Day was set up to celebrate the progress Rotarians around the world have made to eliminate polio.  Rotary contributes $100 million each year to eradicating polio, matched by The Bill Gates Foundation 2:1.  Keep those Happy Dollars coming!  

Please join us for the 2020 Rotary District 5610 Virtual Conference Friday, November 6th from 3:00 pm to 9:00 pm CT via Zoom.  A Zoom link will be distributed via email closer to the date of the event.  We are excited about the wonderful line-up of special guest speakers, panelists, and entertainment.  Watch for more special announcements regarding our guest speakers and entertainment to be shared weekly via email leading up to the 2020 Rotary District 5610 Virtual Conference.

A huge shout out to new member Bob Quinn, pictured left, for his donation of a 2008 Chevrolet 2500 to the WDT Construction Technology program!  Bob is the former owner of Quinn Construction, and current owner of American West Corp.  When Bret Clark, WDT Program Director/Instructor, right, reached out to the 
Construction Industry Center (CIC) seeking the donation of a good used pickup that could be used to haul materials and equipment to job sites where students apply their practical learning, the CIC sent out word to the industry and Bob fulfilled the request.
