Expansion of the skatepark in Moses Lake has now been completed! Supported by numerous businesses, over $146,000 was raised and expended on this unique project.  Additional features were added, and improved lighting was added to enhance skatepark use after dark. 
 
 
January 22, 2021: 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.   
Chartered in January 1951 the club has been an active participant in both the local and international community. Partnering with the city, school district  Big Bend Community College and several other local agencies the club has provided Automatic Electronic Defibrillators (AEDs),
Playgrounds,water fountains, clocks but most importantly our focus has been on education. Our backpacks for kids program provides 500-600 backpacks filled with school supplies for children in need. Our scholarship foundation provides scholarships to both BBCC students has well as graduates from the high schools within the boundaries of the school district.
Our service continues internationally with our participation in literacy programs in Guatemala, water projects in Ethiopia, support for Polio Plus and our support of Shelter Box that provides temporary shelter for families in disaster areas. We truly believe in Service Above Self.
 

 

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.
