You may have noticed a new addition to the artistic landscape in Golden along Washington Ave between 2nd and 5th Street. This new, 1000 ft long mural is the product of an 18-month long program that involved Foothills Art Center, Golden High School, Golden Rotary Club, and Denver artist, Jolt. The new mural is an uplifting message about help, hope, and strength, and was jointly designed by students working along with the artist. 

During the project we had a film crew on hand to capture the entire process and we'll be premiering it tonight with the filmmakers, artist, and our community partners here at Foothills Art Center at 7-8:30 pm on Tuesday, July 17! Watch the following trailer HERE!

Deaths from mental health related issues have doubled since 2010.  The ages are expanding in both directions with younger teens committing suicide while there are higher numbers of deaths in middle years.  There doesn’t seem to be one or two reasons for the increase in the numbers of suicide, which makes the issue even harder to handle.  With these growing numbers, it is no surprise that many Rotarians are involved in looking for answers and offering help in many different ways. 
The Rotary Club of Golden became one of the District’s committed clubs to address these issues in Golden.  The Mental Wellness Committee was formed in 2016, and the first thing they did was to assess the level of need and activity in the Golden community.  Committee members met with everyone possible working in the field, from school therapists, front-line personnel, Golden police, and mental health clinicians, to understand what a group of caring, committed, but inexperienced individuals could do to meet the growing need.


This Rotary year's theme is:  Be The Inspiration!
Here's what it looks like:  
Rotary eClub One is a fully chartered Rotary club and spending 30 minutes on their club site is a Rotary International approved make-up. Rotary International by-laws were changed in 2007 to provide for this make-up. If you have not completed an online make-up yet, you will find it full of more Rotary information then you might typically get at a traditional meeting.
Don't know who does what?  The Golden Rotary Business Directory has all that information for you!  If you are interested in finding an attorney, a financial advisor, or money manager, the Business Directory has it all.  Just:  CLICK HERE
