Club Activities
Our club received a District Grant to help to revamp the employee breakroom at Job One.  For more than 50 years, Job One has been providing opportunities for adults with disabilities. We were formed in 2011 from the merger of two organizations, IBS Industries and Foundation Workshop ––both with decades of service helping people with disabilities. These two organizations (founded in 1967) came together to expand employment opportunities, take advantage of joint marketing and sales efforts, and to create a more efficient and cost-effective agency. As a result, Job One is one of the largest and most programmatically diverse business of its kind in the state. Nearly 40% of Job One employees work in community settings and that number is growing each year! Thanks to a committed board of directors, hardworking staff, and outstanding employees we are poised for growth and program innovation.
The Eastern Independence Rotary Club annually presents the “Rotarian of the Year Bob Jones Memorial Award”.  This award, which was named for Bob Jones, a club member who passed away in 2008, was established the following year and is presented annually to the club member who most exemplifies the values of Rotary.  These members will have taken leadership positions, displaying high ethical standards, showing a dedication to fostering new ideas, and embracing opportunities to be of service on  community and global projects. 
The Eastern Independence Rotary Club annually presents the  “Service Above Self Award Randy High Memorial” to a member for outstanding commitment to service and giving back to the community.  The award was established in memory of club member Randy High, who passed away in 2014.
