Central Lakes Rotary Club was chartered in 1992, and we are proud to provide both financial and hands-on support to many community and international projects. Throughout the years, Central Lakes Rotary has donated to many area programs, including Ryan's Well, Bridges of Hope, Kinship Partners, Grace House, Interfaith Volunteers, Ski Gull Scholarship Program, 3 Area Food Shelves, Salvation Army, Junior Achievement, Alex and Brandon House, Mid-MN Women's Center, H.A.R.T. Animal Rescue, Adoption is Love Fund, PRB CommUnity Meals, Mounted Eagles, Dolly Parton's Imagination Library, Teen Challenge, The Shop (youth center), Timber Bay Youth Program and holiday gift baskets to local families.  One of our Community Service Projects was the purchase and installation of playground equipment in the Pine River Dam Park. 
 
Our International Projects have included partnering with other clubs for construction of clean water wells in third-world countries, clothes washing station with sanitation facilities at Lake Atitlan in Guatemala, construction of schools, a Korean ambulance project, Micro Loans for Ethiopian Women, a poultry project in Haiti, Cows for Cambodia and Shelter Boxes. 
 
Each year, Central Lakes Rotary provides dictionaries to 3rd grade students in Pequot Lakes, Pine River-Backus, Crosslake and Nisswa Elementary Schools, and our largest literacy effort was the completion of an Early Childhood Literacy Project in cooperation with St. Joseph's Medical Center in Brainerd, MN.  More than 700 gift packages were presented to parents of newborns, containing a book, blanket and literature showing the importance of beginning to read to babies right away.
 
Our current projects include purchasing benches for placement in Pine River parks, building a school in Garde-Saline, Haiti and refurbishing/recommissioning four water plants in Haiti. 
 
We are highly involved in the S.T.R.I.V.E. (Students Taking a Renewed Interest in the Value of Education) program, mentoring students in both the Pequot Lakes and Pine River-Backus high schools.
 
Rotary International is the world's first service club organization, with more than 1.2 million members in 35,000 clubs worldwide. Rotary club members are volunteers who donate more than 16 million hours to work locally, regionally, and internationally to combat hunger, improve health and sanitation, provide education and job training, promote peace, and eradicate polio under the motto Service Above Self.
