2017 Bowl-a-Thon
On March 19, 2017 the 8th Annual Bowl-a-Thon was held at Highland Park Lanes.  This event is one of our major fundraisers and our bowling teams dress up in costumes for the fun of it and also to compete to win some awesome prizes!  Some of the annual things we do with this money is to donate Christmas bags to at-risk senior citizens in our community who otherwise may not get anything at Christmas time and send middle schoolers and high schoolers to the Rotary Youth Leadership Awards camps. We also support projects like solar lights to Malawi, Africa, new track uniforms for our Northridge High School track team and most recently we added supporting a project in Honduras where local teachers at Dos Rios Elementary school are rebuilding dilapidated schools there and also sending school supplies to the children. 
 
We want to thank our sponsors of this year's event.  Our Strike Sponsors ($500) were Vintage Corporation, the Greeley Stampede Wranglers, Brandon Houtchens, Attorney at Law, Alpine Veterinary Hospital and Doty Construction.  Our Spare Sponsors ($250) were Journey Homes, Valley Fire Extinguishers, Honda of Greeley, Larson/Llewellyn & Wallace State Farm Agency, Les Schwab Tires, Good Day Pharmacy, North Range Behavioral Health and Full Circle Veterinary Clinic.  Thank you also to all of our prize donors: Coral Bay Liquors, Westlake Wine & Spirits, Papa Murphys West location, Wash 'n Gloss, Syntax Spirits, TCBY, Lucky Fins, Puttin' on the Wax, Texas Roadhouse, Harley Davidson, Starbucks, and Stitched in Stone.
 
We look forward to using this year's funds raised to do good in our community and around the world!

After Hours Rotarians celebrated the beginning of a new Rotary year at their Annual Transition Dinner, June 24.

Special guests for the event included incoming District Governor Phil Murphy and his wife Sarah, as well as AG Carol Stark and PDG Bryan Cooke.

During the event, we heard outgoing President Carolyn Cooke review the last year's events and projects, then honored her with a "Cooke-themed" basket of kitchen gadgets - each creatively labeled with one of Carolyn's attributes by Alison Hamling. We closed the evening with the traditional exchange of pins and listened to incoming President Ron Marshall, as he gave us a preview of the year to come.

Greeley After Hours Rotary hosted District Governor Julie Phares to start of the New Year. 

A resident of Estes Park DG Phares was happy to report the roads between Greeley and Estes are open and in good shape.  She shared her "Rotary Moment" with the club, talking about a service project in Guatemala and how her work there impacted the lives of many people, including her own.

DG Phares ended her visit with an informal board meeting, discussing challenges for the club and sharing ideas.

Thanks for your visit, Julie!

After Hours completes annual Christmas "Basket" Project
Image

Club members come together on a night in December and assemble all gifts, then sort them to go to various agencies that help to distribute some of the bags. Club members personally deliver gifts to Greeley Eldergarden members and to some of the residents of Greeley Manor. Other gifts are distributed through Area Agency on Aging and Meals on Wheels.

Over 150 seniors and at-risk adults received a little holiday cheer this year, as a result of the Annual After Hours Christmas "Basket" Project.

Started even before the club chartered, each year Greeley After Hours Rotary collects a wide variety of useful items to produce a Christmas gift for lonely, needy or at-risk seniors in our community. The original basket has now been replaced by a reuseable shopping bag, but the thought is still the same. Recipients received gloves, scarves, blankets, candy, christmas ornaments and a variety of personal care items.
