Our Club and our Members are proud to support the Eagle River Revitalization Program's Rotary Square Project.
Our community has transformed a previously vacant large corner lot in downtown Eagle River to an inviting and vibrant community gathering and green space.
Rotary Square has been enhanced with artificial turf and offers shaded picnic tables, benches, a pet waste station, ashtrays, trash/recycling containers, portable planters, and seasonal decorations.
To date, we have raised $380,345. When we reach our goal, the next phase is to begin construction on the building, which will offer public restrooms, a warming kitchen, food service counter and utilities. On an occasional basis, the site will be available for special events but year-round, daily, it will offer a place for locals and visitors to find solitude while visiting the downtown area. It will also offer a place for social outdoor dining with carryout being offered from the local restaurants.
Your donation - of any amount - will help complete this project!
Each year the Rotary Club of Eagle River supports educational and humanitarian projects throughout our communities.
Some of our projects include roadside cleanup, support for the annual fishing event for Wounded Warriors, support for the Greater Eagle River Tennis Association (GERTA), the Eagle River Recreation Association's Save the Dome campaign, and more.
Donations were made to the Rotary Club of San Felipe in Mexico for nutritional supplements.
Rotary launched its polio eradication program in 1985, and in 1988 helped launch the Global Polio Eradication Initiative. Rotary members have since contributed more than AUD 1.3 billion (USD 1.2 billion) and countless volunteer hours to protect more than two billion children in 122 countries from polio.
Our Club offers two $1,000.00 scholarships to graduates of Northland Pines High School, Three Lakes High School and/or Phelps High School. For more information, contact guidance at NPHS.
Ambassadorial Scholarships and World Peace Fellowships are offered through Rotary International. See Rotary.com for more information.
Our club created the Eagle River Rotary Club Foundation as means of encouraging contributions to our major fundraising events. The Foundation operates our annual Wine and Cheese Fundraiser, a major source of funds for Club projects. Because of the tax-exempt status of the Foundation, we are able to provide receipts to donors who support our programs, such as our recent donation to the Eagle River Dome.
