Welcome to the Rotary Club of Albuquerque Del Sol website.
The 2012-13 Rotary International theme is “Peace through Service” and our club is actively involved in the many facets of this vision. Our club members are very involved in the local community, in raising money and completing service projects, but are also supporting international efforts. Members of the Rotary Club of Albuquerque del Sol are very generous in supporting efforts to eradicate polio, in providing clean water to villages throughout the world, and in providing education to children who have been denied learning opportunities in the past. Rotary strives to solve problems such as healthcare, nutrition, education and economic development around the world, and in doing so promotes peace.
We are a relatively small Rotary club that likes to take on big projects. This year we will be conducting our 10th annual Governor’s Ball for Children’s Charities. The previous nine Governor’s Balls have raised a significant amount of money for a wide variety of charities that provide critical help to thousands of children in New Mexico. This is just one way that Rotarians in our club give back to the community. Other ways includes our long-term involvement with the Rotary Youth Exchange program. We have hosted many high school students from all parts of the globe, and have sponsored out-bound students to Taiwan and Brazil. We are also involved in the Group Study Exchange program, and have led teams to Australia and South Africa. This is just a sampling of what the Rotary Club of Albuquerque del Sol is all about.
Anyone interested in joining a dynamic group of Rotarians who are changing the community, and the world, for the better are welcome to give me a call. I can be reached on my cell phone at 505-228-7400.
