Rotary International is the world's first service club organization, with more than 1.2 million members in 35,000 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.
Rushmore Rotary is a club composed of inspired individuals who translate their passions into relevant social causes to change lives in communities.
 
The members voted and Dana was nominated Rotarian of the Year for 2017-18! He was awarded a Paul Harris Fellow at the last meeting of the Rotary year on June 26. Thanks Dana for all your contributions to Rotary and the community!
    Congratulations go out to all club members on a very successful membership drive. Since January we had 32 guests attend a meeting or social, and since last July we have 12 new members.  Great effort.  It's easy to promote such a great club!
    To end our membership drive, and because the women had more points in the contest, the men are hosting a BBQ party on Wednesday, July 11th, 5:30 at the fairgrounds. Come, enjoy and have a great time. Bring your family and friends.
Membership Committee
   The Pine Ridge Area Social Services Organizations Rotary Directory was originated by Angie Sam, Raising Healthy Families Together Director. Her intern, Maretta Afraid of Bear, collected the initial data and Robyn Whirlwind Horse assisted with data entry in 2016/17. Raising Healthy Families Together is an informal network of social service organizations providing services to the residents of the Oglala Lakota Nation on the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation in South Dakota.
    The Omniciye Club asked the members of RHFT to expand or compose their organizational profiles, assess the communities they serve, and outline potential projects Rotary clubs might wish to consider for support of volunteers, materials and funds.
    Dr. Craig Howe, Center for American Indian Research and Native Studies (CAIRNS) and Tom Allen, Oglala Lakota College, provided historical and contemporary Tribal information. On behalf of Omniciye Multi-Cultural Rotary Club: Bev Warne, Kibbe Conti, Gloria Eastman and Tom Katus were members of the initial visiting team. Terri Hunter wrote the chapter on Lakota History, Dee Katus edited the data, Tom Katus provided over all management to the project, and Linda Peterson provided final editing and electronic publishing.
   The electronic file is available in downloads for anyone wishing to find a worthy project in need of support. An additional file on Pine Ridge Social Services Organizations Contacts Directory is also available. Both directories were funded by a Rotary District 5610 Grant to Omniceye Multi-Cultural Rotary Club.

Storybook Island: open now! We meet at the Birthday House for our 7 AM club meeting on June 5.
International Committee: Youth Exchange chair Cindy asks that members contact her about hosting an exchange student next year. We have an outgoing student to Italy this coming year!
Tikes and Bikes Committee: The 2017 Poker Run funds benefit the Thrive outdoor adventure gear program by Love Inc. After seven years the Tikes & Bikes committee made a decision to find another project to replace the Poker Run.  They feel the name is no longer appropriate so they are asking for input from the club.  One suggestion was Rushmore Rotary Community Project or something with Rushmore Rotary in it.  You can get back to Janet Kahler with your ideas.
Gala Committee:  The Gala at Mt. Rushmore was a huge success! Planning for the 25th begins!
Golf Tournament Committee: meeting and organizing for this year's event.
Speaker/New member info:  Extra magazines will be available for guests and for members to use for further recruiting. Also, publicity flyers and membership info is available for download from the club website, download section.
Strategic Plan & Goals: Peruse the club documents on the download section.
