The Rotary Motto is Service Above Self.
The object of Rotary is to encourage and foster the ideal of service as a basis of worthy enterprise and, to encourage and foster . . .
The 4-Way test of the things we think, say, or do:
Rotary Intenational is headquartered in Evanston, Illinois. It guides and assists the activities of Rotary Clubs worldwide, under the direction of a president who serves for one year. A District Governor, also elected for one year, heads each of the 515 districts in Rotary.
The Granby club is in District 5450, which includes 45 clubs and about 3,000 members. Major district-wide events include The District Conference, The District Assembly, The Paul Harris Dinner, and PETS (President-Elect Training Seminar).
The Club hosts a Group Study Exchange (GSE) team from another District almost every year.
Members contribute to the Rotary Foundation, which supports many world-wide humanitarian services, including PolioPlus.
Our club has spearheaded the Dolly Parton Imagination Library program in Grand County. This program provides a book a month to participating families. The children's books are sent directly to the child each month, the only requirement is a commitment from the parents to read the books to their children. Granby Rotary started this program two years ago and it has become an overwhelming success. Currently the Granby Club has 93 pre-schoolers participating, with about another 80 between Grand Lake, Winter Park, and Kremmling.
The Club joined in partnership with the Town of Granby to develop the Granby Skate Park, a facility for local youth and adults who enjoy skateboarding and rollerblading activities. Members were involved in the planning and installation of park improvements, and in fund raising activities to pay the costs of such improvements.
We have adopted approximately five miles of US-40 and US-34 around Granby. The club has a "clean-up" program and members pick-up trash along these highways to help keep Grand County beautiful.
The Club also serves a lunch in the Town Park following the Granby 4th of July parade. This is one of our major fund raisers and a great chance for Rotarian Fellowship.
The Club hosts fellowship parties during the year. In 2010 we sponsored the first Progressive Dinner which spotlighted the best Granby eateries. This dinner will be a regular winter event.
We started our Earth Day project in 2009 to cleanup the town and plant trees at the Middle school. With the help of the student we pickup trash in and around the town of Granby. After the cleanup the students plant trees at the Middle school. The trees and supervision are provided by the Granby Rotary Club.
One of our major community events is the 9HeatlthFair help in April. Club volunteers help to make this a major community health event. The club in conjunction with 9 News and many other organizations sponsor a day when local residents can get blood tests and other important health screenings done at a very reasonable price.

Our club helps fund books and teachers for Centro Educativo La Minga, a school built by Pam Gilberts.
Our club participates in the Rotary International End Polio campaign.
The club sponsors a Shelter Box some years. Shelter Boxes provide resources when disasters happen as during the Haiti earthquake and other international catastrophes.
