Rotary Club of Golden hosts evening meeting

The Golden and District Rotary Club is changing up their meetings, and inviting the community to come join them.

The Golden and District Rotary Club is changing up their meetings, and inviting the community to come join them.

“We’re going to move the first meeting of every month to an evening meeting. The goal is to get people who have an interest in the club, but can’t make lunch meetings,” said Greg Ehman, president of the Golden Rotary.

The Rotary usually meets every Thursday afternoon for lunch. The first evening meeting will be on Thursday Dec. 6.

“This is an opportunity for them to get out and make it more of a social thing. It’s going to be at the Fire Pit, and we’ve got some great speakers lined up. They’ll be talking about their experience with Rotary, and on exchanges.”

The Rotary Club spearheads and contributes to various community projects. Right now they have an exchange student from France, are discussing how to expand the Rotary Trails, and have just met with the Ministry of Environment about some Confluence Park upgrades.

“Now we have a really clear view of what is possible. So ideally there are going to be some improvements at the Confluence Park,” said Ehman.

Their biggest project moving forward, however, will be helping with the early childhood care facility in Golden.

“We’re completely behind the early childcare project. We’ve just agreed to come on board with that so we’re going to be a big partner,” said Ehman.

“The Early Childhood Care Initiative is going to be our premier community project for a while.”

Anyone interested in learning about these projects, or what the Rotary is all about, is invited to come out to the Thursday meeting. Typically you need an invitation from a Rotary member to attend, but this club is welcoming everyone.

“We’re fairly open with invitations. If people have an interest we welcome them all the time,” said Ehman.

“It’s not a high-pressure sales thing. Just come in, see what we’re about. And if you’re interested we can talk some more.”

The meeting is taking place at the Fire Pit BBQ Smokehouse at 6 p.m. Cocktails are at 5:30 p.m. Dinner is $15.
