2021 Year in Review
In March of 2021, the Salida Sunrise and Buena Vista Rotary Clubs celebrated 6 years of sponsoring Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library in Chaffee County.  This outstanding program mails a free age-appropriate book to every registered child each month.  All children in Chaffee County are eligible from birth until they turn 5 years old.
This program promotes and encourages a love of reading among children and helps ensure that children enter kindergarten with a strong ability to read and an eagerness to learn.  It also promotes parent-child interaction and bonding.  If a child is registered at birth and remains in the program until he or she turns five, the child will accumulate 60 high quality books.
This program has been very successful in our community.  Since our launch, we have mailed nearly 25,000 books to over 930 children in the Salida School District!  Across Chaffee County, over 39,000 books have been mailed to over 1,400 children.
If you are interested in joining the Salida Sunrise Rotary Club, please feel free to contact any one of the members of the board of directors.  These individuals will gladly answer any questions you may have.  A complete list may be found on the home page of this website in the left-hand column.  You may also like to download our Member Information form and the Application form found under the New Member Documents tab on this website.
It’s a Wrap! 
The 10th Anniversary Celebration

What a fun afternoon we had on Sunday, August 29th at Riverside Park!  The 10th Anniversary Celebration of our Salida Sunrise Rotary Club was truly a celebration of service to our wonderful community!  The kids had a great time racing small ducks in gutters and painting rocks and small ducks.  Everyone enjoyed the fabulous live music, the amazing performance by the Salida Circus, and meeting with many local non-profit organizations.  And of course, we had the Lucky Ducky races in the Arkansas River!
