The Strater Hotel was the host site for the first annual Rotary community open house!  On February 23rd, the four Rotary clubs of La Plata County hosted an open invitation to community leaders and business persons to come as guests of Rotary to see the world of Rotarians.

Just over 60 guests signed in and mingled with their Rotary hosts and other interested folks from around the county.  Appetizers and a cash bar opened up the evening and each of the four clubs spoke of their clubs, their projects and interests in support of community and international projects.

Assistant Governor Clyde Church opened the gala with an overview of Rotary and its history in our community.  Foundation Chairman Joe Williams told the attendees about the Rotary Foundation and drew applause with the story of polio eradication and how we are chasing down the "Final Inch" in Rotary's sustained efforts to lead the efforts to eradicate this scourge.

In follow up reports, it is being reported that commitments to join us in our efforts to do good in the world are in the works.


To join Rotary in our community, please contact one of our four clubs.
