Smoky Hill has sent $2000 to the Oradea, Romania Rotary Club to support their hands-on work with Ukrainian Refugees. We will send at least $3000 more in early April due to our fundraising efforts. We know our funds will be put to good use because we have personally worked with the Oradea Club and its members for over 20 years. Pictured is a family fleeing Ukraine on the way to Budapest and Prague, after being helped in Oradea.

Smoky Hill is proud to announce we have awarded four Vocational Scholarships to T. H. Pickens Vocational College students.  The scholarships are $2000 each and are awarded on a needs and merit basis.  Vocational Scholarships support students learning the skills and abilities to excel in their chosen vocations.  Many of these students work while taking classes and raising families so our support is essential to their success.  Congratulations to the awardees!
Dacian Coita, Oradea, Romania Rotary Club joined our meeting via Zoom and talked about the successful implementation of the urology equipment at the hospital in Beius - our Global Grant project from three years ago.  Smoky Hill and our partners in Rotary raised over $117,000 to provide state-of-the-art urology equipment to allow kidney issues to be treated locally in Beius.  The local water source facilitates the creation of kidney stones, increasing the need for kidney treatments.
Zoom is dead!  Long live Zoom!  
Smoky Hill is proud to announce that we are moving to hybrid meetings on the 2nd and 4th Monday of the month, starting in November!  We will meet at Meadow Hills Golf Club, 3609 S. Dawson St. (Just east of Parker Road on E. Hampden) in Aurora at Noon.  We are asking that everyone in person be vaccinated for the safety of all!  We will also continue with a Zoom component for those who can't attend in person.  Contact President Betsy for the link information:  bjcolo10@comcast.net .
 
 
 
Smoky Hill Members participated in the Woohoomanity Challenge, riding our bikes from 25 to 105 miles the last Saturday in September to raise money for Smoky Hill.  Thanks to all who participated!
Thanks to our small but mighty Smoky Hill Rotary Club's $1000 donation, a District 5450 COVID-19 matching graft to SHRC for an additional $1000, and a similar donation from Denver Rotary we were able to help Comitis Crisis Center purchase a sorely needed new commercial refrigerator.
Smoky Hill Sees the Fruits of its nearly $150,000 (total expense) Global Grant Project in Beius, Romania.  The Rotary International Global Grant funded by several Rotary Clubs all around the world purchased and installed brand new urology equipment in the hospital in Beius.
