Upcoming Events
 
Welcome!

Left to right: Here's one of our Student Rotarians, Yliana Kolosseus, with club member Bob Barnard. All ages welcome!

The Rio Grande Rotary Club of Las Cruces (#1310) is an active group of men and women who like to have fun while enthusiastically participating in helping people in our community and throughout the world. We also welcome new members. 

Our Club Golf Tourney Brings Much Needed Support to Habitat for Humanity
 
It's a lot of work to pull off a golf tournament, much less one that raises $9000! Hats off to our club members, and particularly James Dolan and Buffy Johnson for all their hard work in successfully launching the 2nd Annual Habitat Fore Humanity at Sonoma Ranch Country Club. Thank you to all our golfers, participants, sponsors and volunteers for contributing to this fun and important fundraiser. 
 
The results? Rio Grande Rotary Club, along with Mesilla Valley Habitat for Humanity was able to raise $9000 to be used to help furnish this year's homes. 
 
 
Above, left to right, are Ann Russell, James Dolan, Candice Butler and Richard Haas, as we present this years donations to Ann and Candice. Thank you again to everyone who made this event such a success!
The 2018 Yard Sale - A Big Success!
 
Thank you to everyone in our Rotary club and their family and friends who volunteered their time and services for the Annual Yard Sale to support Mesilla Valley Hospice in Las Cruces, Rotary District 5520. An annual event since 1999, we've raised thousands of dollars for the hospice. We'll be at the Citizen's Bank parking lot at Loretto Town Center. 
 
 
The net result? This year, we raised $9000 to support the hospice, bringing our total contributions over the past 20 years to roughly $182,000! We had a strong showing of club members for the pre-sale set up and during the sale to help customers and clean up. According to Pam and Carol, we sold everything but the kitchen sink, and then some.
 
We couldn't do it without you all, and the efforts are much appreciated by the hospice and our community. Thank you again.
A Job Well Done for Rotary's New Generations Programs
 
 
We're delighted for our Rotarian Carol Flinchbaugh, who was recognized with an award from Rotary District 5520 for her work over this past year with our New Generations programs. We couldn't be happier for you, Carol. You've dedicated many hours towards this important component of Rotary and your efforts have not gone unnoticed! You make hard work look fun and we're glad you're in our club! 
Winner of Rotary District 5520's Distinguished Service Citation 
 
 
Did we mention that our club has many Rotarians with warm hearts and giving hands? Here's one - congratulations to Buffy Johnson, who received Rotary District 5520's Distinguished Service Citation Award in recognition for all she does in our community. We love it, Buffy, you've earned it! We're glad to have you in our club!
