2022 Eagle County Highway Clean-Up

The Rotary Club of Vail was an event sponsor of the 22nd Annual Community Pride Highway Cleanup last week and several Rotarians cleaned up a section of the I-70 median in Vail.  Thanks to the Eagle River Watershed Council for organizing the cleanup that made a visible difference in the garbage that ends up on the highway medians.  Overall, 1 small nonprofit (ERWC) + 77 team leaders + 836 volunteers + 20+ sponsors + 21 years of tradition + 1 sunny spring day = 17.7 tons of trash removed!

What is Rotary?

As members of Rotary, we are frequently asked, "What is Rotary?" This video is just a tiny part of what Rotary is and who we are.

Finding Safe Haven

For years, Angalia Bianca had slept in abandoned buildings throughout Chicago. She stole. She did drugs. She spent time in and out of jail for forgery, theft, trespassing, and possession of narcotics. But after she landed in prison for the seventh time, something changed -- Bianca knew she wanted a better life. She just didn’t know how to make it happen.
After serving her time, Bianca sought help from a local homeless organization, A Safe Haven, and moved to its shelter in the Rogers Park neighborhood. Bianca followed the program closely -- she attended all the required meetings, passed drug tests, and volunteered at every opportunity.

Saving lives in Ghana

What is it like taking a large team to Africa?  It has probably been one of the most rewarding experiences in my life. In mid February, I began leading Rotary members from all over the East Coast of the United States through Ghana. I’ve tried to give the team a warm Ghanaian welcome like I’ve received on my earlier trips. A large trip is a real blessing because each person sees Ghana and our work in a different way.

A highlight for the team was greeting the chief of Sagadugu. The team got excited about buying goats and food for children in the villages where I support eight churches. It was good to see the pastors of most of the eight churches, and I had to explain that we were just passing through on our way to Bolgatanga.
