Thank you to everyone who tutored a 6th grade student at our adopted school, Franklin Elementary, this year! Please contact the Education Committee if you are interested in participating in the project next fall.

As third generation with the company, Paul and Jeff Young presented the beginnings of the company in Ogden Utah in 1920 as a single location by their grandfather Thomas Young Sr. and the growth through the years.

They had Thomas Young Sr’s rotary badge.  Tom was born in 1895 and passed away in 1971.  His son Thomas Young Jr. is a member of our club.  Thomas Young Sr. had to wait 20 years to join the Rotary Club in Salt Lake after having been a member in Ogden.

They enjoyed the tour of YESCO’s 104,000 square foot facility on 16th South and Bangerter Highway and particularly enjoyed the time in the neon shop watching Dave Corey “blow” and create a neon tube over the neon ribbon fire.

Participants in the “extended” neon shop tour (from Left to right):  Fletcher Hamel (guest of Brian Berkelbach), Ryan Weakley (guest of his father Don Weakley), Scott Rosenbush, Dave Corey (neon-YESCO), Brett Sutherland, Paul Young, Brian Brown (YESCO).



Steve Warner and his neighbors provided and served dinner at the VOA Homeless Youth Center on Wednesday March 13, 2019.  They provided and served  a full course meal that included shoyu chicken on rice, broccoli, green salad and brownies with vanilla ice cream, fruit juice and milk. The 47 teens they served devoured everything.   The kids really look forward to Rotarian dinner night.  They know our teams always provide a fabulous meal.   Steve and his neighbors love doing this Rotary project and are looking forward to doing it again.

The purpose of Rotaract is to provide an opportunity for young men and women aged 18-30 to enhance the knowledge and skills that will assist them in personal development, to address the physical and social needs of their communities, and to promote better relations between all people worldwide through a framework of friendship and service. Rotaract clubs are sponsored by Rotary International and part of a global effort to bring peace and international understanding to the world—there are 7500 Rotaract Clubs in 156 countries across the globe! 


The Rotaract Club of Salt Lake is a service-focused, professional organization for people aged 18-30. We are sponsored by the Salt Lake Rotary Club, who provide us with the resources and support to thrive. We are a great club for people who are interested in having fun, meeting wonderful people, and doing service! Our club holds a meeting the last Sunday of every month at 7pm and throughout the month we organize various service projects, fundraisers, and socials. We also attend leadership and professional development conferences, network with other Rotaractors and Rotarians, and participate in international humanitarian expeditions. 


If you are interested in hearing more about our club or joining, please contact slrotaractclub@gmail.com. We look forward to meeting you!
