President's Message

Welcome to the Rotary Club of Verrado.  Thank you for taking a few minutes to visit us here. 
I have the honor and privilege of serving this Club as the current President. With the end of the recent pandemic lockdowns and distancing, clubs like ours have found a resurgence of interest by people who have tired of isolation and socializing via social media and Zoom. Our meetings are full of lively interaction, fun and great programs designed to keep us informed about our local community and the world around us.
Our Club is a relatively new entrant in the world of Rotary having been founded in 2018, much like our community of Verrado and surrounding neighborhoods are new to the fabric of the City of Buckeye – not too long ago a small farm town with a long history and now an emerging larger city which is amongst the fastest growing in the nation.  Our goal is to follow Buckeye’s lead in keeping that small town feel where people know and rely on each other while embracing our new neighbors as they arrive and helping them to meet people and learn how they can embrace and serve their new home. 
Our club participates in many both local and international causes.  Here is a brief list of the activities and organizations we support.
 Buckeye Youth Council
Verrado High School Interact Club
Rotary Youth Leadership Awards Camp
Feed My Starving Children
Arizona State University Autism Research
Hopefest 2022 – A family event which included education about human trafficking
Salvation Army Bell Ringing
Buckeye Public Library
Buckeye Super Heroes Program
City of Buckeye Adopt A Road Clean up Program
Meals of Joy
All Faiths Food Bank
To learn more about what it means to be a member of our great community, I invite you to attend one of our meetings. We convene every Tuesday morning at West Mec at 7am. For our weekly meetings we discuss topics relevant to our efforts and typically feature key-note speakers to present and share their ideas. Whether you're an active Rotarian, a prospective speaker, or just an interested individual, I hope to see you soon.  If you have any questions feel free to contact us.
