The Rotary Club of Niwot
Rotarians At Work Day
April 25, 2009
On April 25, 2009 over 76,000
Rotarians from around the world performed hands-on
projects in their communities. What started as a joint
district project in 2005-2006, has grown to encompass at
least 26 Districts throughout the world.
Rotarians At Work (RAW) Day is a
grass-roots program where the Rotary Clubs in each
participating district select and perform hands-on
projects in their local community all on the same day.
In 2005-2006, Bob Watson, then the District Governor of
that District 5340, envisioned a time when all Rotarians
around the world would be working on community projects
on the same day.
In Niwot, our members from The
Rotary Club of Niwot pulled fence and barbed wire from
the ditch boundaries and open space adjoining the Niwot
Loop Trail, which improved the appearance and user
safety of the of the trail and public spaces. We then
moved downtown on to 2nd Ave. and removed
weeds and trash and cleaned street gutters.
