The Glenwood Springs Rotary Noon and Sunrise clubs joined forces to raise money for local organizations through the sale of the Rotary Club Discount Card. In its tenth year, the clubs raised over $34,000. The recipients ranged from Boy Scout Troop 225 to YouthZone, and the First Ascent Youth Program.

Hopeful Heart continues to serve community members who use mental health services. They offer classes in computers, cooking, personal hygiene, vocational rehabilitation, gardening, and social behavior. They also serve lunch Monday through Friday for just $1.50.
