The Rotary Club of Niwot

The Rotary Club of Niwot subscribes to and follows the main tenets of Rotary International.

As a small club currently operating under provisional status and with guidance from Rotary Clubs in Boulder and Longmont and RI District 5450, we are developing our focus of service. It starts with the Avenues of Service espoused by Rotary International and tempered by size and a realistic assessment of our abilities to commit to and perform service. For a small cub, we have really done a lot already. Those achievements can be seen on our Service Projects page.

The 4 areas of service are:

  • Club Service (club administrative positions and roles)

  • Community Service (community projects focused on Niwot and the adjacent surrounds)

  • Vocational/Educational Service (local schools, education, and leadership training)

  • International Service (supporting an array of Rotary and cooperative projects to improve health, water, safety and living standards in underdeveloped areas)

All of our members are involved in one or more of these activities, and they have chosen those that align with their interests. At the service Projects link, you can see how our projects fall within those areas.

To raise funds for these efforts, we conduct or participate in fund raising activities. Funds raised in this manner (and other Rotarians' donations) are kept in a separate account (apart from club operating expenses) so that 100% of those monies go to the projects. Examples of our fund raising efforts are:

  • Pancake breakfasts in Niwot prior to holiday and Nostalgia Days parades and events

  • Sales of western slope peaches

  • Manning the beer sales booth at the Boulder Creek Festival

  • Those contributions at meeting that are "happily" donated by members (and guests)

If you have a desire to participate in these kinds of activities and perform service to the community of Niwot, to meet and work with vigorous local Rotarians, please come to a meeting and say hello. The rewards of volunteerism are particularly sweet when you are doing them with friends, neighbors and exciting people.
