Our large community service project this Rotary year is to improve the skatepark here in Moses Lake.  The current park was built over 25 years ago and is in need of an update.  We plan on adding lighting, concrete features, and just make the park a better place for the kids.  We have raised 73K toward the project.  We are anticipating needing a total of 125K to be able to complete Phase 1.   
What a team we are! Rotarians and Kiwanians working together to build a better community!
 
October 30, 2019: Back in September of this year, members of the Rotary Club of Moses Lake board of directors met at the Moses Lake Senior Center to see the new 2019 Toyota Sienna AWD minivan we helped purchase for the Home Delivered Meals Program. Total project cost was $37,434.

Way to go, Rotarians!

October 13, 2019: Six brave Rotarians (age 65 and older) worked in the wind and cold today, installing the metal roof on one-half of our new picnic shelter at Connelly Park in Moses Lake. No club members fell off the roof, or were injured by sheets of metal roofing that wanted to take off in the wind!

They also embedded a cast iron recognition plaque into concrete. The plaque states this structure was funded by the Rotary Club of Moses Lake, Rotary Club of Moses Lake Sunrise, and The Rotary Foundation.

One more workday..., and this project will be complete!

Follow this more closely on our facebook page! 

December 5, 2018: Join us  for a pleasant day of summer golf and fun on June 14, 2019 for the ninth annual Kiwanis Club of Moses Lake & Rotary Club of Moses Lake Golf Scramble supporting Meals on Wheels! We will be awarding prizes for low gross score, and low net score after applying handicaps. We will also be selling Mulligans & Super Tickets and was well as other fun pay-to-play options. All proceeds go to support the Meals on Wheels project! Sponsorships are available!

Paul Harris

“Whatever Rotary may mean to us, to the world it will be known by the results it achieves.”

—Paul P. Harris

Our 1.2 million-member organization started with the vision of one man—Paul P. Harris. The Chicago attorney formed one of the world’s first service organizations, the Rotary Club of Chicago, on 23 February 1905 as a place where professionals with diverse backgrounds could exchange ideas and form meaningful, lifelong friendships. Rotary’s name came from the group’s early practice of rotating meetings among the offices of each member.

Our ongoing commitment

Rotarians have not only been present for major events in history—we’ve been a part of them. From the beginning, three key traits have remained strong throughout Rotary:

We’re truly international. Only 16 years after being founded, Rotary had clubs on six continents. Today we’re working together from around the globe both digitally and in-person to solve some of our world’s most challenging problems.

We persevere in tough times. During WWII, Rotary clubs in Germany, Austria, Italy, Spain, and Japan were forced to disband. Despite the risks, many continued to meet informally and following the war’s end, Rotary members joined together to rebuild their clubs and their countries.

Our commitment to service is ongoing. We began our fight against polio in 1979 with a project to immunize 6 million children in the Philippines. By 2012, only three countries remain polio-endemic—down from 125 in 1988.
