Club member Sonny Weigand, aware of the success of the Summit County Rotary's scholarship program, committed to significant funding if DMHR created a scholarship program.  Dan Himelspach offered additional funding and soon a number of other Club members and friends contributed. A complete list of donors appears at the end of this article.  
 
We are proud to be able to assist these students in achieving their goals through this scholarship.  To learn more about these two extraordinary scholars, click here.

Denver Mile High Rotary has partnered with the Rotary Club of Highlands in Zimbabwe since 2005, focusing on economic training for women.  But when the Highlands Rotarians met with community representatives from Tafara and Mabvuku, in the suburbs of Harare, the Rotarians found out that clean water was a much bigger issue.  So we turned our efforts to rehabilitating current community wells, drilling new ones, and emphasizing improved sanitation.  Get the rest of the story.
 
Volunteering Opportunities
The impact in 2020 of COVID19 was devastating. And Denver Mile High Rotarians rose to the challenge.  Whether we were packaging food, painting storage facilities or assisting with COVID19 vaccinations, we were contributing time and money to help.
