Four Rotarians who lead in the Rotary Peak naming project are arranging a Rotary Peak Hike on Saturday, August 5, 2017, inviting all Rotarians , Rotaractors, Interactors, and friends to join the hike to Rotary Peak starting at 9 am from the parking area at the top of Loveland Pass the. The route traces the Continental Divide, with spectacular scenery in all directions. Distance to the summit is approximately 1.5 miles with less than 500 feet elevation gain. Hikers need to be at the trailhead 30 minutes before, or 8:30. Car-pooling is strongly recommended as there is limited parking.
Commemorative “I Climbed Rotary Peak” buttons will be given to those who complete the hike.
Click here for the public information flyer includes a trail map, hiking safety tips and trail etiquette rules, and basic information on Rotary International and our Rotary District 5450. The Trail Stewards will be wearing special Rotary vests.

The Rotary Peak Project is asking Rotary Clubs to donate a minimum of $100 or more to defray the cost of such promotional and public service activities. Funds expended thus far have fallen directly on the four Rotarians leading this project and your Club’s financial support will enable the project to continue to completion. The Littleton Rotary Foundation is acting as the clearing house/banker for funding of this effort.
Please submit any donation by issuing a check to the Littleton Rotary Foundation Inc., PO Box 143, Littleton, CO 80160. Please make certain to, Memo: “The Rotary Peak Project”.
Dave Muller has been trekking in the Colorado high country for the past 46 years. He has written eight outdoor guidebooks and for seventeen years wrote a weekly “Hike of the Week” column in The Denver Post. Recently retired from a successful career as a psychiatrist in private practice, the octogenarian is currently working on his ninth guidebook.
One of the hikes described in his book, Colorado Easy & Scenic Hikes, is titled “Peak 12,479” referencing its altitude. Dave had long wondered why the popular trail leading to a summit just west of the top of Loveland Pass was un-named.

The District is now accepting District Grant applications for projects that will start after July 1.  District Grants are a great way to double your Club's contributions to service projects, both locally and internationally.  Any Club in the District that is qualified can sponsor a grant...and any Club can support a District Grant with cash and District matching funds.
For Clubs to be qualified to sponsor grants, the District requires $50 per capita giving by the Club in the previous Rotary year.  Because of the importance of Rotary’s Polio Eradication effort, the District will now consider contributions to PolioPlus in meeting that requirement.

Complete information is on the Grants section of the website.  Get started now! For questions, contact ---Kam Breitenbach kamiebreitenbach@gmail.com or Carolyn Schrader  schrader407@gmail.com
