The Telluride Rotary Club would like to offer special thanks to Craig Ferguson and Planet Bluegrass for giving Rotary the opportunity to extend its offerings at this year's Bluegrass booth.  By adding drinks such as Bloody Mary's, Mountain Mules and Dark & Stormys, the Rotary Club increased the funds raised at this event to our highest earnings.  Rotary has been a part of Planet Bluegrass since its inception 40 years ago, and our 70 strong membership looks forward to our continued relationship.  

These funds raised at Bluegrass specifically support our local high school scholarships (acknowledging Planet Bluegrass as the point of funding), our local Rotary Youth Exchange (this year sending out nine local high school kids and bringing in five international kids to Telluride), and Rotary International's ongoing efforts to eradicate polio worldwide. 

The Telluride Rotary Club is in its 68th year of helping Telluride with projects such as the Telluride Medical Center, the swimming pool,  scholarships, and youth leadership and exchange programs.  The club is part of Rotary's 1.2 million members in over 200 countries worldwide – working globally to provide clean water, combat hunger, improve health and sanitation, and eradicate polio. 

To learn more about Rotary, call Linda Avery (2013-2014 President) at 970-327-0162 or attend a Rotary meeting every Wednesday at the New Sheridan from 11:45 - 1:00.
