Thanks, Big Sky SNO for having a big presence at PBR. Rotary Club of Big Sky was happy to lend a hand. Directing attendees to the right bins for their trash and cleaning up after the Rodeo to make sure less materials ended up in the landfill. Also thank you to Outlaw Partners for being such a wonderful host.  At least 4 Rotarians were boots on the ground. Enjoying the entertainment and doing good.
The proceeds from our annual Giving Tree event are still creating an impact for Big Sky kids.  Rotary worked with OPHIR to provide back to school supplies to they can be ready to welcome the kids with everything they need for a successful school year.  
The Big Sky Rotary team always volunteers for the annual Gallatin River Task Force Cleanup.  This year we had 10 volunteers and cleaned up over 2 miles of the river from Moose Creek to Greek Creek.  
We had a great group of volunteers this year to stain the dugouts at the community park.  It takes a lot of work to keep us with out beautiful park and everything it brings to the community.  
Thanks to Ivy Hicks-Secretary and Chloe Hammond-Treasurer of Interact Club for their update on Interact Projects at the Big Sky High School:
1. Fundraised with an online auction to send a girl to school in Nepal with the Tsering Fund
2. Rotary Reads- students choose books from the High School Library to read to elementary students
3. Mental Health Projects- students made weekly announcements over the High School PA System to share methods to reduce stress and improve study habits
4. Planning next years Annual Interact Trip; possibly a Habitat for Humanity house building project in the Dominican Republic
-Both Ivy and Chloe appreciated the Leadership skills they learned as Interact members, were happy to help others, and were more connected to their community through the Interact projects.

$4,500 Macdonald-Burt Scholarship 

The Rotary Club of Big Sky is proud to announce its annual scholarship in the amount of $4,500 to be awarded to a Big Sky resident attending college or a vocational post-high school program. This scholarship is another community project that the Rotary Club of Big Sky is able to fund as a result of the community’s generous support of the annual Gold Raffle and Auction held each January. 

The criteria for the scholarship will be based on financial need, community service, and academic performance. A committee of three Rotarians will review each application, and a winner will be announced by May 31st, 2021. The deadline for the application is April 30th, 2021. All information provided to the review committee will be kept strictly confidential to the members of that committee. 

The scholarship will be awarded to the student and paid to the institution upon receipt of a tuition bill. Big Sky residents interested in applying for this scholarship should contact a Rotarian for an application or visit for more information. A school transcript and detailed description of community service must be included. 

Please find the scholarship application in the menu bar at

 The Donation will make possible a better education and a brighter future for many schoolchildren in impoverished Guatemalan communities.  Because these programs are self-sustaining, the Big Sky Rotary Gift will keep on giving year after year as new students are helped each and every year in perpetuity.  
Pending approval by The Rotary Foundation, Big Sky Rotary's contribution will be multiplied by up to three times.

Rotary Club Seeks Families for the Christmas Giving Tree

The Rotary Club of Big Sky, with the help of the Big Sky Community, is once again sponsoring the Christmas Giving Tree.

The Giving Tree is an annual program that helps families during Christmas by providing gifts for the children and a Christmas dinner for the family. If you would like to partcipate in this project, please pick up a Santa Letter for each child from either one of the two banks, the Food Bank or the Country Market and help each child fill out their Santa Letter.

Kids can request three gifts from Santa. Please keep toy/book requests under value of $50 each.

Please mail the Santa Letters in the provided self-addressed stamped envelope as soon as possible and no later the December 1st.

Once the Santa Letter is received, Big Sky Rotary will place one angel ornament on the Christmas Giving Tree. Community members will pick up an angel ornament and fulfill the child’s wish by purchasing the gift.

A Rotarian will schedule gift delivery on December 23rd (or before if communicated). The Rotary Club will also provide the family with a Christmas dinner basket at the time of gift delivery.

Please know this program is completely confidential. It is also important to know that because of Covid19 that our deadlines are a little earlier this year, giving us time to grant as many wishes as possible.

Happy Holidays!

Potential club members are everywhere. But to get them to join Rotary, clubs must use creativity and imagination, says Past RI President Cliff Dochterman.

"Rotary International leaders keep emphasizing membership growth and extension because Rotary's very survival depends on it," says Dochterman, a member of the Rotary Club of Moraga, California, USA, and author of The ABCs of Rotary, a resource for new members. "If Rotary is to grow, we all must take action."

Dochterman believes clubs can thrive by seeking new members, retaining current ones, and sponsoring new clubs in the community. He offers the following tips:

Seeking new members

Clubs must have a specific plan in place, says Dochterman.

  • Use a team approach. Teams should have several members who meet with qualified business and professional leaders to discuss the benefits of joining Rotary.
  • Set aside one club meeting per month to be a "visitor day," to which all club members would invite a friend or prospective member.
  • Seek out natural prospects, including Rotary Foundation Ambassadorial Scholars, Rotaractors, and Group Study Exchange (GSE) team members.
Rotary Fellowships Month - Make New Friends Around the World

ImageRotary Fellowships Month - June is designated as “Rotary Fellowships Month” by the RI Board to recognize the importance of international fellowship and good will among Rotarians with similar recreational interests, vocations, and health and medical issue-oriented interests, to promote increased participation in fellowships and increase understanding of this program. The RI Board encourages fellowships groups to highlight activities through projects, activities, and events in celebration of “Rotary Fellowships Month” in June.

“Fellowship is wonderful; it illuminates life’s pathway, spreads good cheer, and is worth high price.”

  -Rotary Founder Paul Harris
