Done-in-a-Day Projects cover just about anything you can imagine. When we find a need, we find a day to put our “Service Above Self” motto to work. Past projects have included supporting a Wounded Warrior softball game, working with CASA to build a wheelchair ramp, collecting health and hygiene products for underprivileged children, and cleaning graffiti from Rainbow Mountain hiking trails.
Every August, we gather at Rainbow Elementary School to participate in the SS Kids Project, which provides backpacks filled with school supplies for local underprivileged school children.
Poliomyelitis — or the poliovirus — is a highly infectious disease that most commonly affects children under the age of 5. It is spread person to person, typically through contaminated water.
Since 1985 Rotary has led the battle against polio, and kept the pressure on as worldwide cases plummeted from 350,000 per year to several hundred.

More than 60 years ago, in the midst of the Great Depression, a U.S. Rotarian devised a simple, four-part ethical guideline that helped him rescue a beleaguered business. The statement and the principles it embodied also helped many others find their own ethical compass. Soon embraced and popularized by Rotary International, the Four-Way Test today stands as one of our organization’s hallmarks.
