News and Stories
 

Thanks, in part, to a $2,500 grant from the Rotary Club of Colorado Springs Service Fund, a new ceramic mural was dedicated on May 17th in the parking lot of the Penrose Library.  The mural dedication was the culmination of months of work by dozens and dozens of community members, all orchestrated by local nonprofit Concrete Couch. Rotarian Andy Vick points to a small ceramic tile referencing the Rotary Club’s involvement that will be a permanent part of the mural.

 

 
Palmer High School has an official Interact Club.  The club was chartered on April 3, 2016.  This is an outgrowth of a group of determined students who want to make a difference in the world.  In February, the IB Environmental Studies class contacted us through their teacher, Melanie Phelps.  They wanted to do something to improve water quality in the developing world.  This was prompted when they saw a picture of women and children gathering water from a very muddy stream for drinking and washing.  Rotarian, Jean Feist has met with them several times and they are engaged in planning and fund raising for a water project next school year.  Two of the Interact students will be attending RYLA in June for leadership training.  I am sure you will be hearing more about Palmer High School’s Interact Club in the future.

The Rotary Club of Colorado Springs will be actively involved with Rotary Youth Exchange in 2016-2017 with both an outbound and inbound student.
 
Our outbound student is Annie Nikolaus who attends the Discovery Canyon Campus High School in District 20.  Annie will be leaving this summer for her exchange year in Germany in the town of Flensburg, about as far north in Germany as one may travel before entering Denmark.  Annie's brother Kevin was also an Rotary Youth Exchange student in Germany in 2009-10, also sponsored by our club.  Annie's parents, Larry & Kathy, will be the first host family for our inbound student.  Annie and her parents will join us at a July meeting before she heads to Germany.
 
Our inbound student is Christopher Grundner from Micheldorf, Austria, about 150 miles west of Vienna.  Christopher will attend Discovery Canyon Campus High School and should arrive in Colorado about August 5th.  Our club's Larry & Chris Keefe will be one of three host families for Christopher.  You'll have the opportunity to meet Christopher at our meeting on August 12th. 
 
 
 
Thank you to our members that planned such a wonderful evening.  Here's a glimpse of the fun:
