Working with the Boise Centennial Rotary Club and the Eagle/Garden City Rotary Club, our club is leading the way to construct the Rotary Park on the Greenbelt, located on the new section of Greenbelt. The park will include 4 park benches, bike repair stand, dog waste bag dispenser, little free library and interpretive signs.  We will tell stories from Boise history, the 50 year history of the Greenbelt, the Oregon Short Line Railroad which crossed the river on our "Trestle Bridge" and facts about "Government Island", the site's location, where the US Army camped in 1863 to build Fort Boise. A central featured element will be a 1931 monument placed nearby by the Daughters of the American Revolution.
 
The site of the Rotary Park is on the newest section of the Greenbelt, just west of the "Trestle Bridge". This section of the path, running from Joe's Crabshack to Anne Morrison Park, is the final piece within the city limits on both sides of the river!
 
A portion of the $50,000 cost will be raised through the sale of commemorative bricks. Click here to go to the brick order form!  For more information, check the Greenbelt tab on the home page.  Bricks are still available!
 
 
 

The members of the Rotary Club of Boise Metro welcome you our website. We are one of seven Rotary Clubs in Boise's "Treasure Valley". Chartered in 1985, our 36 members are united in a commitment to make our community and the world a better place. 

Rotary’s main objective is service — in the community, in the workplace, and around the globe. The 1.2 million Rotarians who make up more than 34,000 Rotary clubs in nearly every country in the world share a dedication to the ideal of Service Above Self.

Rotary clubs are open to people of all cultures and ethnicities and are not affiliated with any political or religious organizations.

We adhere to Rotary's FOUR WAY TEST:

  • First, is it the truth?
  • Second, is it fair to all concerned?
  • Third, will it build goodwill and better friendships?
  • Fourth, will it be beneficial to all concerned?
 You'll find Rotarians volunteering in communities at home and abroad to support education and job training, provide clean water, combat hunger, improve health and sanitation, and eradicate polio.

 

The Boise Metro Rotary Club participated in the Open World Program in October, hosting a group of 8 Russians from Tomsk, Siberia. Open World is a US State Department program than started in 1999 as a way to promote exchange with the countries of the former Soviet Union in Eastern Europe. It is not a Rotary program, per se, but RI encourages clubs to participate. Our visitors were professionals who were affiliated with the Siberian State Medical University. Their emphasis was on adaptive technologies for people with disabilities and distance learning (the connection is that Russia doesn't have the ADA to help disabled citizens). Rotarians hosted the Russians in their homes and provided a week's schedule related to their interests, and some fun activities, too. Metro Rotarian and Project Coordinator, Cornelia Sprung, said, "this was a wonderful experience for our members and we now have good friends in Russia we can stay in touch with through FaceBook!".
