“I want to see Rotary Be the Inspiration for the communities by doing work with a transformational impact. It’s time to start moving forward, by removing the obstacles that are holding us back. Let’s make it easier to make adjustments in our clubs or start new clubs that suit different needs. Let’s work together to strengthen Rotaract and smooth the transition from Rotaract clubs into Rotary. Let’s give all Rotarians the flexibility to serve in the ways that work best for them, so that every Rotarian finds enduring value in Rotary membership.”
~ Barry Rassin, President, Rotary International

The Rotary Club of Socorro recently celebrated 80 years of Service to the Socorro community and beyond.  Charter night for the Club was June 6, 1938 with 38 new members led by our Senator Clinton P. Anderson. The Club truly believes in "Service Above Self." Rotary is 1.2 million men and women belonging to 35,000 Rotary Clubs in nearly every nation in the world. 

For the past 80 years, the Rotary Club of Socorro has enriched the lives of members,  our community and our country.  Congratulations to all current and past Rotary Club of Socorro members!
Effective May 24, the Rotary Club of El Paso Zaragoza became the newest Rotary Club of District 5520.  We now have 69 Rotary Clubs in our district and 20 new members associated with the new club!  El Paso Zaragoza was sponsored by the Rotary Club of West El Paso.
The club held its installation of officers and charter celebration on Friday, June 8.  Rotarian Ofelia Mletzko, President of the Rotary Club, led the effort to form the new club and was assisted by Carey Beamesderfer, club adviser, and Nelson Calzadilla, who now serves as President-Elect, Secretary and Rotary Foundation Chair.  Lorena Alvarado is serving as Treasurer and Ben Williams is serving as Membership Chair.
Please consider a welcome gift to the new club to help them fund their treasury and purchase supplies.  Suggested amounts are $200 for very large clubs with 85 or more members; $100 for large clubs with 38 or more members; $50 for medium size clubs with 20 or more members; and $25 for small clubs with less than 20 members. Welcome gifts and cards can be sent to the club treasurer Lorena Alvarado at 1332 Sabrina Lyn, El Paso, TX 79936.
