A tribute from Kathleen Saltmarsh-Voss (written Monday 2/8/16:
 

Yesterday just minutes before SuperBowl kickoff, my dear sweet Rotary Grand-Sponsor & friend, Leslie Cook, passed away. I know she is no longer in a wheelchair and I hope she's with her husband, Jay Cook, a former KRDO newscaster hottie from the black/white days. I was lucky to be just one of her adoring minions and my rotary table will never be the same.

Have you checked your closets lately for extra coats and other outdoor winter wear? We will do a Coat and Outdoor Winter Wear Drive for Springs Rescue Mission on two Fridays,  February 12 and February 19.  Check out your closets and bring clean, warm coats so that we can help keep people in need very, very warm!

 

 

The Service Fund in our club gave $3000 to the Colorado Springs Philharmonic in the fall. The funds have been used to purchase recorders and books to give to students in schools throughout the city.  Students are learning a musical piece which they will play with the  Philharmonic at a concert this spring.  For this concert, there will be opportunities to volunteer to usher, so watch for the date!

The music teacher at The Vanguard School wrote this thank you note to our club:  “Thank you so very much for making recorders and books available for our Title I School.  I am enclosing photos of each class that is participating in the Philharmonic’s Link Up program.  Again, thank you so so much for your part in making this possible!  Jan Lightfoot, Elementary Music Teacher

Each recorder has a Rotary logo on it.

 

 

 

 

 
Last Saturday, January 23rd, several Rotarians (and spouses) donated their time at a free pancake breakfast held at Queen Palmer Elementary School.  The Rotarians helped check in guests and serve a catered pancake breakfast.  All of the food was paid for by School District 11.  There were over 100 attendees at this special event (including members of Queen Palmer Staff and their Principal, Mrs. Fahey, School District 11 Superintendent & Club Rotarian Nicholas Gledich and School District 11 Board Member Elaine Naleski)!  The purpose was to promote a sense of community within the school and its surrounding area, and to also promote reading.  All families present were given packets that clearly showed the benefits of children reading on a daily basis.  Children also had an opportunity to take home some books that had been donated to the school.  The fiction series Goosebumps was a BIG hit, as well as books on bats, spiders and all different kinds of other animals.
