This Friday we welcome our District Governor Teresa Anson to our club along with her husband Cliff.  Teresa is a member of the Rotary Club of Grand Junction.

Teresa has co-owned and co-managed residential land development businesses for the past 13 years.  After downsizing, Teresa and her husband and business partner, and fellow Rotarian, Cliff, are now running only 2 development companies, both now in Colorado.

Teresa graduated with honors from Colorado Mesa University with a BS in Mathematics as well as degrees in elementary and secondary education.  She retired from teaching in 2005 to be able to expand the family land development businesses.

Volunteering has been a large part of Teresa’s life beginning with local school accountability committee work, community organizations, and her church home.  She was the Trustee and Board member for a number of organizations.  She is currently serving as the President of the Colorado Mesa University Foundation Board.

Rotary continues to be a significant interest and she serves in various roles at her local Club as well District 5470. Teresa began her Rotary service in 2003.

Cliff was her sponsor for joining the Grand Junction Rotary Club.  She became a member of the Paul Harris Society on her induction day.  She has served on many of the 29 committees in her club and chaired several of them.  She has been on the Club’s Board multiple times and served on the Grand Junction Rotary Club Foundation Board.  She was selected as Rotarian of the Year for the 2009-2010 year by the Grand Junction Rotary Club.  She became the Club’s President for the year 2012-2013 and was only the 3rd woman to serve in that role in the Club’s 93 year history.

As President, Teresa was able to attend the RI Convention in Bangkok.  She is very dedicated to the Rotary Foundation and is a level 3 Major Donor.  She has served at the District 5470 level beginning with RYE and Global Grants.  She is currently serving as the District Administration and Management Chair and District Governor Elect.

Teresa and Cliff have 4 children and 3 grandchildren, with another one on the way.

Cliff is a dedicated Rotarian of 13 years and serves on the District Grants Committee for District 5470.  He is also a level 3 Major Donor.

Teresa and Cliff reside in Grand Junction and are engaged and involved in many aspects of their community.


At this Friday's meeting you will get to meet and hear from our District 5470 Global Grant Scholar, Jourdan McGinn.  Jourdan has earned a $30,000 Global Grant Scholarship funded by your donations to the Rotary Foundation.  She will study at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine starting in September with a specialty in the Maternal and Child Health area of Rotary focus.  Jourdan has a fascinating story to share of her experiences for the past four years in rural East Africa.

Having been part of the Rotarian Family for just over a year has been inspiring and compelling. To be surrounded on a weekly basis with a group of people whose mission it is to impact humanity locally and internationally is profound. That being said, it is an honor to be involved on this year's Flight Committee where our local chapter of Rotary will strive to make a difference in School District 11. With the commitment from fellow Rotarians, local leaders and the community, last year The Rotary Club of Colorado Springs, through the Flight Gala, was able to raise over $100k and provide grants to District 11 and our own Service Fund, including funding a purchase for green screen technology for Palmer High School.

This year at the Gala, in addition to the Butterfly Auction and Silent Auction, we will be offering a Wine Pull. This is a fun opportunity to help us raise additional funds. If you are not familiar with a wine pull, the idea is to donate $20 and draw from a barrel of wine corks to win a fabulous bottle of wine. To make this fundraiser possible, we need your help! The Committee is asking that if possible, each Rotarian contribute a bottle of wine for the Pull; with a value of $20 or more. Any donations are welcomed and greatly appreciated. Please bring all contributions to the Friday club lunch.

In advance, we as a committee want to thank you for making this year's Flight a huge success!

The Rotary Board met on Thursday, July 21, 2016, at The Antlers.
We welcomed Rotarian Dr. Jean Sende to our most recent meeting.  Jean is the President of the Noisy Le Grand Rotary Club just east of Paris.  Jean is an emergency medicine physician whose skills were put to use last November in Paris during the ISIS-inspired attacks.  He was here in Colorado Springs visiting his brother Ruben who also joined us for lunch.  Always wonderful to welcome visiting Rotarians to our club.                                              

Our butterflies are out around the community.  Follow the link to see where they are.
