Community service provides methods and activities for the club to support the community to which it belongs. There are often ad hoc committees in this area to support specific projects.
Taste of Las Cruces is an annual event conducted by the Rotary Club of Las Cruces, the Mesilla Valley Rotary Club, and the Rio Grande Rotary Club, to raise funds to meet community needs. Taste of Las Cruces offers attendees a chance to sample the wares of a number of local restauranteurs in one location, while contributing to local causes.
The 2016 event will be held at the Las Cruces Convention Center (see map below) on Thursday, June 2, from 6:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. Beneficiaries of this year's event are Casa de Perigrinos and the Roadrunner Food Bank. Local restaurants have agreed to participate by donating food to be sampled by attendees, and more are being sought; this is a great way for participating restaurants to showcase their wares, and to aid the community in supporting a worthy cause. Contact us if you'd like to be involved.
Both Casa de Perigrinos and Roadrunner Food Bank will be accepting donations of non-perishable food at the event. Food donors will receive an extra ticket for door prize drawings. In addition, there will be a silent auction, a live auction, and other entertainment at the event.
