About
The Rotary Club of Highlands Ranch Satellite
 
 
ORGANIZATION:
In January 2014, with the help of our parent club, the Satellite group of the Rotary Club of Highlands Ranch was formed.  All of us are full fledged members of the Highlands Ranch club.
The objective of our group is to offer a flexible schedule and appeal to potential members who do not have the time or resources to commit to a more traditional Rotary Club.  In addition to meeting twice a month instead of weekly, we meet in the early morning (continental breakfast included) before the start of a normal work day which may appeal to those who can’t take the time to attend a meeting in the middle of the day (see meeting details below).
We operate much as a traditional Rotary Club does, including having topical speakers at most meetings.  In concert with our “parent” club, we support many of the traditional Rotary causes such as local community service and literacy projects as well as polio eradication and other international projects.  We also enjoy periodic social events and a number of fun projects some of which provide fundraising opportunities which allow us to help support our local not for profit groups and other activities within Rotary as an International service organization. Below is a partial list of the projects we support:
Integrated Family Community Services – Mother’s Day ,Thanksgiving and Holiday baskets , food drives to replenish supplies. For families in need.
Douglas Elbert County Task Force provides food and clothing for residents of Douglas/Elbert counties.
Santa Clothes project in concert with Kohl’s Dept. Stores an annual event providing clothing and other essentials to underprivileged children
El Dorado elementary school – Spelling books for first and second graders
Peaceful Schools program teaching first and second graders about ending bullying, handling and understanding emotional issues and promoting tolerance at El Dorado elementary school.
