Claremore getting third Rotary Club

CLAREMORE — Claremore’s third Rotary Club met for the third time Monday evening to discuss some upcoming goals and projects.

While the club is still in the planning stages, members were busy generating different ways to help the group grow.
Currently, the group has 11 members and needs 25 before becoming chartered.
“The people and events are what help make our service so successful,” said Club President  Renie Doherty.
The group believes it is important to promote growth by publicising fundraisers.
Two Rotarians of the Southside Tulsa Club, Monte McNutt, president and Brett Brough, club treasurer, are helping to sponsor the Rotary.
“Before we can begin building fundraisers, we must first find a common passion.  Once the passion is discovered the goods and services can be delivered,” said Brough.
Members found to be passionate about living a healthy lifestyle and are looking into sponsoring 5k races in the community.  The races would be non-profit and raise money for certain charities, as well as promote healthy living.  Meetings for the Rotary are at 6 p.m. Mondays at the Los Aztecas Mexican Restaurant, 784 South Lynn Riggs Blvd.
