Annual Golf Classic
April 14th at Desert Lakes Golf Course!
We are currently looking for Sponsors, door prizes and Players for our annual Golf Classic.  The funds raised this year will help us in our mission to provide a new van for our local Boys & Girls Club, so that they can bring more kids to the club that are currently on a waiting list due to lack of transportation.  Join us for fun and fellowship, and making a difference here in our community!

The Four-Way Test Essay Contest
Each year we hold a competition for local 8th graders to write an essay about the 4-way test and what it means to them and their life.  It is quite a joy to read these amazing essays and see the insight many of these young people have.  Congratulations to the 2017's winners and thank you for coming to our meeting and reading your award winning essays!  The 2018 contest is currently underway!

School Clothes for Kids!
Each year we get so excited for our School Clothes for Kids project.  Through the generous support of our individual members, the club and a matching grant from Rotary District 5520, we are able to shop with local children for the clothes they need for school.  This year because of an unexpected increase in the grant we received from the district, we were able to shop with a total of 35 kids!  With the help of our local Boys & Girls Club of Otero County we were able to identify families in need.  This year because of the large number of participants we shopped with one group before Christmas and wrapped up our second group in March.  We are so grateful to be able to do this project each year and we are thankful to all the donors and volunteers that come out in support of the children and families in our community. Thank You!
