Welcome!

Over the past 14 years, our club has donated more than 20,000 dictionaries to 3rd graders in 25 Las
Cruces Public Schools. It's just one of several ways in which we support family, youth and our community.

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.

Announces 8th Grade Essay Winners

 
Great news – we saw a surge of participants in this year’s annual Four-Way Test for 8th graders, which made for a fun and challenging task of choosing the best essays! After reading more than 45 essays, our judges announced the winners - Jose Daniel Figuerdo, Bethany Sanchez, and Jacob Ormand, all students of Ms. Michelle Senoski of Mesa Middle School of Las Cruces.
 

Essay winners, L-to-R: Jose Daniel Figuerdo, Bethany Sanchez and Jacob Ormand
with their teacher, Ms. Michelle Senoski of Mesa Middle School in Las Cruces.

Thank you to all the students, teachers and Rotarians who helped make the contest a success. A special thank you to Becky Binkley, who dedicated the time to distribute the essays to the 8th grade teachers, so they could be completed in the classroom, and collect them for our judges. Students, congratulations! We’re proud of you! Learn more about Rotary on our website.

Funds Raised to Help 600+ Children in Dona Ana County

The Rio Grande Rotary Club of Las Cruces raised $18,500 in support of children at its annual holiday dinner and auction event on December 8. The funds went to the Dress the Child Foundation, whose mission is to provide new clothing and shoes for elementary children in need.
 
Dress the Child originated in 1986 by a handful of Las Cruces Rotarians who recognized that a need existed. This year, Dress the Child funds have helped to dress more than 600 children. Dress the Child founders and volunteers believe that children who lack adequate clothing can suffer lower self-esteem than other children, tend to perform poorly in school, and suffer from other social issues.
