$35,000 East Central Ministries Project (ECM)

Our club’s biggest local project in many years has recently been completed. R.I. approved the project on August 13th, 2010, and funds became available soon after. The funding came from RI, Rotary Districts 5520 (NM & SW Texas) and 4110 (North Central Mexico), 4 Mexican Rotary Clubs – Juarez Campestre, Chihuahua Majalca, Ciudad Juarez, and Torreon Empresarial, and our club. Our club’s total contribution of $5,500 came from our Foundation and individual Rotarians.


Administration of the project went very smoothly. A student film maker, and friend of Janet Thompson, made a 17 ½ minute promotional  video of the project, emphasizing the cooperation between the US and Mexican Rotary Clubs and ECM. Janet has assisted ECM with economic/marketing advice and has helped with sales of honey produced by the Urban Farm section of ECM.


A full story about the project was published in the September and October 2010 issues of The Round Table.


A tip of the Rotary hat goes to Ron Salley and Tom Walker for making it all happen along with the full support of the International Service Committee. After Ron recently assumed District 5520 duties, Rick Breeden took over.

The Rotary Club of Albuquerque
Children's Fantasy Garden at the Albuquerque Biological Park,

A Garden of Discovery!
The Children's Fantasy Garden at the Albuquerque Biological Park is the world's most imaginative acre. It is a magical place of astonishing light, color and exuberance; but beyond that, a living picture book of how Mother Nature energizes and reinvests her world and ours, through time. These are things children want to know - things they will discover each time they venture into the Fantasy Garden. The Rotary Club of Albuquerque donated $150,000 to help create this fascinating "classroom" for the children of New Mexico. The quality of life in our city improves dramatically every year thanks to such imaginative projects as the Children's Fantasy Garden.  

Working Classroom, Inc.

An Award Winning Program for At-Risk Children

In 1999 an 2000, The Rotary Club of Albuquerque donated a large share of the proceeds form our major fund raiser to Working Classroom, Inc.

Working Classroom is a multi-ethnic organization of professional and novice adult and student artists, actors and writers.

Children's Hospital of New Mexico

The Children's Hospital, located within University Hospital, provides the most advanced neonatology and pediatric care available in New Mexico. Their care ranges from Ambulatory care outpatient clinics to inpatient units providing the highest level of intensive care hospitalization.
