President's Message
Jimmy Olevson

I am sure I am not the first nor will I be the last however Happy 2017! Since our inception, the Rotary Club of Ashburn has done great things for the community and 2016 was the new high. What does that mean for 2017? We raised our own bar and need to do even better this year! To get started, we received a late Christmas gift from Costco with our first pallet of 200 backpacks for 2017- thank you Sharon Wright and Loudoun Clear Marketing!

Please come join us this week at our meeting to get back in the swing of things and enjoy some fellowship. We are starting to average in excess of 40 Rotarian's each week so don't miss out! As always, please call (323-313-2626) or email me ( with any questions or comments.

Steuart W. Weller Backpack Program

Your help is needed supporting the Steuart W. Weller Elementary School Holiday Backpack Project.  

The Service Committee for the Rotary Club of Ashburn invites our Rotarians to participate in providing a holiday dinner for the students who we also serve through our Backpack program.  Many of these students will not have a holiday dinner and many of the parents will work on Christmas Day.  The Parent Liason at Steuart W. Wellar recommended the attached list which are items that the children can prepare for themselves and their younger siblings.

We invite you to sign up to bring one of the following items to our Holiday Luncheon on December 15th.  The signup and list of requested items is available at

You may also drop off items at Jessica Monte's home: 23077 Red Admiral Place, Ashburn VA 20148

Thank you for all you do!  Service before self.

We appreciate any help you are able to provide.  Thank you so much!
