The Redmond Rousers Rotary closes, Dec 31st, 2012.

The ENDING of the Redmond Rousers Rotary Club happens officially on Dec 31st 2012. After many attempts to keep the 22 year club in operation, the board of directors finally had to shut it down for low attendance.

Kelly Kyle, Past President 2010-2012 said that the club had tried very hard to keep the club operational and thriving for many years. We even lowered the amount of the dues to only $400.00 a year....from over $1200 previously. The economy has taken a toll on peoples spending budgets and time awareness, towards "volunteer projects" too, Kyle says.

The Rousers, have faced some AWESOME challenges in their 22 year history, and those are noteworthy. You can find many, many projects listed within these BLOG pages.....But my favorite is still the slum house in Lima Peru....where we spent $3,600 to connect this house in the outskirts of town to running water & sewer for 40 people. The kids and people of that project were so thankful and we were never prouder....of any project. Also the starting of the 425 Coup de Cascades Bike race was a wonderful way to donate to POLIO eradication too.

To see more go to
