Rotary International is a global network of 1.2 million neighbors, friends, leaders, and problem-solvers who see a world where people unite and take action to create lasting change – across the globe, in our communities, and in ourselves. Rotary members believe that we have a shared responsibility to take action on our world’s most persistent issues. Rushmore Rotary is a club composed of inspired individuals who translate their passions into relevant social causes to change lives in communities.

Our own Scott Van Dam shared his hobby of collecting agates September 24, 2019 -- Fairburn, Prairie, Hills.  His presentation in the form of a poem was very educational explaining the history, chemistry/minerology, and sheer beauty of agates.  Several members joined Scott for a trip to Railroad Buttes where we tried to spot some agates. The presentation and field trip were fabulous.
Rotary Connects the World:  Rushmore Rotary
was a recent international sponsor of a Rotary International Global Grant in India for desks, chairs and wash basins for a local school.


The School of St. Jude's Interact Club (Tanzania) along with other Rotaract Clubs planted 500 trees at a government school near Arusha.


Several Rushmore Rotarians attended the luncheon for United Way Day of Caring Kickoff September 5, 2019, and stained picnic tables and fences at Star of the West Complex:  Shari, Darla, Penny, Mary, Julie, and Cathy.  Thank you Rushmore Rotary for supporting this outreach effort.
Rushmore Rotary provided support for banners to the SDSMT Rotaract Club during their campus Organizational Fair.  Meerab Joseph (President) and Noah Tousignant (Secretary) are pictured.  These two officers also received scholarships to attend Rotary Youth Leadership Awards (RYLA) in Washington DC this summer.  Heidi Bell Gease helped the Rotaract Club organize an ice cream social on September 3rd  to kick off the school year.  Heidi is looking for some Rotarians to serve as a friendship family to Rotaract students for the year.  Please contact Heidi direct at mrsmarmot@yahoo.com.
