Golf Tournament Wrap Up:
June 30, 2021: The eleventh annual Kiwanis Club of Moses Lake & Rotary Club of Moses Lake Golf Scramble occurred on Thursday June 17 with great weather and an enthusiastic crowd ready to raise funds for Youth Outdoors Unlimited.  The preliminary report shows net income of $13,437 which is just a wee bit shy of our previous record of $13,667 set in 2020.  
 
The total net was increased with Chera Anderson from Washington Trust Bank donating back her split-the-pot winnings of $610 on Ping Pang Pong, Eric Homer from Clear Risk Solutions donating back his split-the-pot winnings of $500 on 52 Card Pickup, and Adam Niehenke on Samaritan Healthcare Team #1 donating back his $100 winnings on Land By Me.

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.   
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! 

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.
