We are an extremely active club compared to other clubs our size.  We work

hard at our community service projects and fundraising yet have a great time. 

The children in our community are our major emphasis and most of our

fundraising  event go to benefit the children in our community.  Just last year

we gave $20,000 in college scholarships, dictionaries to every 3rd grade student,

and in the past have also given the school new computers, sponsored and funded

youth leadership events, and joined RMBL in funding the Slate River Science

Project for middle school students.  Some of our other community projects

included funding pocket parks & gardens around town, Spring Clean-up,

volunteering for Adaptive Sports and collecting food for the local food bank.  This coming year we will continue these projects, and will be creating a Foundation to help provide a bigger impact in our community and around the world.

Our club offers to its members many things: leadership training, community service opportunities, fellowship, social event, and networking opportunities  Through Rotary, you can even travel internationally and do service projects in a country of your choice. 

We invite you to explore how you can make and impact in the Crested Butte Community and beyond through membership in Rotary - please contact us, we would love to have you join us at one of our weekly breakfast meetings - typically we have speakers from the community present on various topics.

The Crested Butte Rotary Club’s main fundraiser event is the annual Duckie Race 2:00pm Sunday August 4 - during the Arts Fest Weekend (the first weekend in August)!
