fundraising for local projects

Fund Raisers

Wheat Ridge Rotary’s biggest fundraiser of the year is running the Beer Garden at the Wheat Ridge Carnation Festival in August.

Life Service not Lip Service

Serving, Caring, & Sharing
God of all, today we pray that we may receive your blessing because we are committed to be a real service organization to help humankind. May each of us, in our daily routine, come to know the joy of caring and sharing with others who are not as fortunate as we are. May our motto that includes serving, caring and sharing be for us life service not just lip service.
Amen.
