The Rotary Club of Rogue Valley After Five, chartered in May 2009, was created by young professionals with the goal of serving the needs of our local and global communities through Rotary service. Now with nearly 40 members, we're excited about continuing to make an important impact on our community and the world.

Our meeting location is at Jackson Creek Pizza in the heart of MetroMedford. We welcome you to stop by after work and relax during happy hour for some fellowship with us! We would love for you to join us at one of our monthly volunteer projects too!

Hearts with a Mission- Open house for their new youth Shelter tomorrow, December 5, 2019 from 12:00-6:00pm at 517 Edwards St. Medford. Stop by and take a look.
All Rotary Social-  December 7, 2019 4-7pm at Growler Guys (345 Lithia Way). Please come and socialize with Rotarians from the valley. Enjoy some grilled brats from Cartwrights. hot German wine or even a German beer. The wine will be served in a special ceramic mug, which are available for purchase or returned for your deposit back. Jeff Fretwell and Friends will be playing some live holiday music. 
New WiFi is all in and ready to roll.  For club member use only, the SSID is JCP-AFR and the password is AFRrocks! and the public use is labeled as JCP-Public with the password as jcprocks.  Big thanks to Eric and all who helped to get this running.
Poker for Polio- Our annual fund raising event is coming up in February at the University Club, next door to the Holly Theater. We are still looking for 2 table sponsors and 1 title sponsor. Please see Scott Brodie to learn more about how you can help.
December Club Service Project: We will be making senior shoe boxes with the Interact members on December 15, 2019 12:30p-3:30p at Jackson Creek Pizza. We need shoe boxes, the kind with the lid that comes off, please bring any shoe boxes you have to meetings so we have enough to make 24 packages for seniors in our community. 
Community Service Opportunity Facebook Group-  As a club, we sponsor one service project a month- except during months when we have a fundraiser. We hear about many other service events set up by fellow service organizations and/or other Rotary clubs. Because we all have the heart to serve, and to keep from overwhelming our members with the all vast number of service opportunities, we have decided to create a Facebook group so our members can keep up to date on all the events offered and participate as their schedule permits. This group is linked to our Facebook page, and is open to community organization and members to post service opportunities. This is a great way for our club members, or anyone who likes our Facebook page, to get involved in our community. You can join this from the Rogue Valley After Five Facebook page, or reach out to Jennie McLaughlin to request an invitation.
10 Year Anniversary Party will be held on January 25th and we looking for volunteers to help set this one up.  It will be in place of our annual post holiday party.  If you are interested in planning this event or helping, please let Eric know.
New Proposed Members are James Bradshaw and M.J. Jones and they both have been approved by the board to become members of our great club.  Please give both a big welcome and the official induction date has yet to be determined.
Rogue Power Pack Program has on now.  For a quick hour every Friday (sometimes Thursday) it is a fun little project that runs from 1:30 to 2:30 pm.  For the 2019-2020 school year at Orchard Hill Elementary we are now using the site for all of us to select our volunteer slots. Remember, we need two volunteers per week and it takes about an hour and you must have done your background check with the Phoenix/Talent School District.  
Speaking of Polio, Rotary District 5240 is putting together an immunization trip to India.  The dates of the trip will most likely be January 13 through January 25th.  Though the door to door immunization will be conducted for one day, participants will need to be in good shape, both physically and mentally due to the amount of walking and long hours.  Details for this trip were provided by our own PDG Chuck Root and the average cost to join this service trip is around $3,000 to $3,500.  There are a lot of requirements that need to be meet per the information provided (check with Eric for details), but it is something to look into for this or future immunization trips to help with the fight against Polio.
