Perhaps best known for hosting the July Jamboree event on Main Street every year, the Cedar City Rotary Club is busy year-round engaged in the cause of doing good. From big-hearted residents to hard-working professionals, local Cedar City community members regularly make generous donations of time, money and service to benefit those locally and around the world.
In 2018, a generous donation was given by State Farm Insurance and local State Farm agents totaling $20,000 to help restoration of lands damaged by the 2017 Brian Head fire. The money was donated with the purpose of Rotary Club and community members working together to plant trees at Yankee Meadows on Cedar Mountain, a popular fishing and camping area that was heavily damaged in the fire.
In the fall of 2016, Kenneth Englehart, community and Rotary Club member, and his wife Helen, also contributed to help press the Rotary Foundation’s world-wide efforts along with a $1,000,000 donation.
The Rotary Foundation is a global network of 1.2 million people who have joined together with the vision of taking action to create change across the globe. The foundation has over 35,000 clubs who work together to promote peace, fight disease, provide clean water, sanitation and hygiene. They also work to support education and grow local economies.
