Latest Club News
 
Rotarians Jim Muir, Ron Sorlien, Tricia Fahey and Jim Boyd (the photographer) helped spruce up the gardens surrounding the gazebo in O'Brien Park.  Here the group is pictured around a statue of Nancy Gripman, the founder of the Parker Task Force and an avid gardener.  The Rotary Club of Parker donated the gazebo to the Town of Parker in 2004 to celebrate the 100-year anniversary of Rotary's founding.
The Rotary Club of Parker celebrated our first opportunity to meet in person in more than a year at the Change of Command picnic on June 26 at Bayou Gulch Park in Parker.  The weather tried to interrupt the proceedings, but in true Rotarian fashion many people leapt to the rescue, pinning down everything from the canopy to the napkins.  We are clearly a group who believes in service…and desserts.  For lots of pictures of the event, check out this slide show.
 
 
Congratulations to the following seniors from Chaparral and Ponderosa High Schools in Parker who received Rotary scholarships.  Most were able to join our online meetings on June 3 or 10 to let us know their future plans.  We wish them all the best as they continue their education!

The Rotary Club of Parker joined with other Rotary clubs in our District in a day of service on Saturday, May 8.  Look at all that Rotarians can do!

 

Our club's project was to do some spring cleaning in the sensory gardens at Praying Hands Ranch, a therapeutic riding center.  After working, we had the opportunity to learn more about the mission of Praying Hands Ranch while visiting the indoor arena.  We also presented a check to support their work.  To see more photos of our club in action, click here.

 

2021 Parker Impact Awards
The Rotary Club of Parker held a virtual celebration on Thursday, March 11, 2021 to honor the recipients of the 2021 Parker Impact Award, celebrating individuals and groups who have lived out Rotary’s motto of Service Above Self during this past difficult year.
 
Our thanks to Tom Barr of Lightsail Video (https://lightsailvideo.com/) who produced the program for us, and to Rotarian Lisa Neal-Graves who created three of the short videos in the presentation.
