Golden Rotarian

I joined Rotary to be part of a group of people with high ethical standards that have the same passion as I do, to make our Golden community a better place. Since joining I have learned that the difference I can make goes so much farther than that to all different parts of the world.

During my first few meetings, I knew right away that this was the club for me. The Rotary members called me every Thursday to personally invite me to the meeting and also to invite me to different events.

Since joining, I have become the director of New Generations.

New Generations refers to the newest avenue of service for Rotary Clubs.

This includes programs such as Interact, Rotaract, Rotary Youth Leadership Awards (RYLA), and Rotary Youth Exchange.

My first project with New Generations was supporting the DARE Program which is being taught in Golden.

I believe this is an important part of having kids grow up to be drug free.

As part of what we will be doing with New Generations, we will do our best to keep residents updated with our projects as we start them.

The Rotary is the most rewarding club I have ever been a part of. There is a place in Rotary for everyone to make a difference in the world that you never thought you could make. If you are interested in being part of the family of Rotary see a Rotarian about joining, you will be glad you did.

Feel free to contact Bob Tegart at 250-272-4321 about attending one of our weekly lunches.
