Please join us Saturday Aug. 17. Tickets are selling fast. You don’t want to miss this event and with your help, the Rotary Club of Los Alamos can make a difference serving as a beacon of hope for an entire community.”
The Los Alamos Rotary Club engages leaders. Members exchange and encourage ideas, and together take action. They invite community members to join them.
In past years, the funds raised by the Rotary Club of Los Alamos have supported international projects in Guatemala, Nepal, Nicaragua as well as the Dominican Republic. The club is very active in Juarez, Mexico serving children and families with medical and social challenges with hands on support and financial contributions. These efforts are saving and sustaining lives everyday.
Locally, the club has provided the Audio Loop System for Duane Smith Auditorium, designed and created outdoor structures for the Los Alamos Nature Center, provided swim lessons for hundreds of elementary school children and supplied the county with much needed AED units, these as well as many other needs are being met everyday here by the local Rotary Club. Locally as well as internationally, Rotary is all about setting communities, families and individuals up for sustainable success.
