Halchita Service Project

In RY2020-21, Rotary District 5420 organized the Native American Initiative (NAI) for the purpose of championing native American tribes in Utah … and despite COVID, Rotarians in 15 Utah clubs stepped up to deliver more than 350,000 lbs. (valued at almost $140,000) of “more good” toward this goal.

However, what was also planned in RY2020-21 – but didn’t happen – was a “bigger, better, bolder ‘service above self’ weekend” in support of our neighbors and friends in one or more of 11 tribal communities.

So, on Halloween weekend (October 28-31, 2021) you, your family and friends are invited to join us in Halchita where we will renovate an empty building to create the Halchita Community Center for youth and adults … host a Halloween Trunk or Treat (in a neighborhood parking lot, drivers decorate their trunks for Halloween and when loaded with candy, kids can safely “trick or treat” from car-to-car) … explore some of the most breathtakingly beautiful scenery in all of Utah … and perhaps even enjoy a few surprises!

For the service we will need many strong backs, as well as Rotarians and friends of Rotary with skills / expertise to complete some of the following improvements and upgrades:

  • Repair or replace the furnace
  • Replace ceiling tiles
  • Repair existing playground equipment
  • Prepare interior walls and paint the approximately 2500 S/F building
  • IT support to set up the computer library
  • Electricians to wire ceiling lights and install the kitchen ceiling vent fan
  • Plumbers to install toilets and raise the sink in the main bathroom
  • Upgrade or install rooftop swamp A/C units
  • Weed clearing and updating the baseball field adjacent to the building
  • Artists to create a 4’x8’ wooden sign to be installed on the building
  • Plan, prepare and serve meals

Other projects are being planned as well, so we will need every willing volunteer, over age 14.

Bring your camper or tent or reserve a motel room in Bluff, Monument Valley or Mexican Hat!

Come, even if it’s just for a day or two … and, please sign up TODAY for this exciting event online at http://halchita.district5420.info!
