The Rotaract Club of Tulsa presenting a $3,000 check to Rebuild Together Tulsa, July 2014

 

In 2011, Rotary Club of Tulsa provided leadership and resources to sponsor a new community-based Rotaract club in Tulsa. With a membership of young professionals between 18 to 30 year olds, the Rotaract Club of Tulsa meets monthly at different locations in the Tulsa area.  In addition to this, they perform a regularly scheduled monthly service project with many different organizations, including, but not limited to: Rebuilding Together Tulsa, Gatesway Foundation, Salvation Army, etc.. They also put on an annual fundraiser, with all proceeds benefiting aforementioned non-profit organizations. Rotaract meets twice a month at Lefty’s on Greenwood.

For more information, contact Club President Daniel Brunson.  Visit their Facebook or Eventbrite pages to see any planned upcoming activities.  If you are interested in joining or attending a meeting, please complete this form, expressing your interest or email, TulsaRotaract@gmail.com.

Rotaract clubs organize a variety of projects and activities, depending primarily on the interests of the club members. However, within the Rotaract program, all clubs undertake three types of activities in varying degrees: professional development, leadership development and service projects.

Stay Connected

As we get closer to Thanksgiving, we want to continue to show our gratitude to the Rotarians that inspire us. Today's "Be the Inspiration" is none other than James Vierheller, better known as "Mr. Ed."

Mr. Ed is called upon at weekly Rotary luncheons to "auction" items and raise funds for our foundation, and he always accepts his duty and gets top dollar. He is an inspiration to all for this ethical character, dedication, high standards, and willingness to help others. We are most fortunate to have Mr. Ed in our club, but we sure aren't the only ones. Just ask anyone in the City of Catoosa about his inherited "Iris Garden."

Thank you Mr. Ed for being you! You are our inspiration!
