Literacy Matters

In my role as District 5470 Literacy Co-Chair, I am writing to let you know that September 8 is International Literacy Day.  Rotary Clubs worldwide are asked to commemorate this important day at club meetings and in districts.  At our Friday meeting, I will be sharing information about the District Literacy Award which has been reinstated in the district this year, thanks to District Governor Bob Delavan.

Our October 16 meeting will focus on literacy in the early years and the importance of this focus as an investment in building our business community.

 

 

 

 

Challenge!!

Friday's Rotary program was presented by the Colorado Springs Conservatory (our own Linda Weise is the founder) and it highlighted A Positive Note: music-making for young adults with disabilities.  This program was so inspiring that Dwight Johnson, from our club, issued a challenge to members of the Rotary Club of Colorado Springs. Dwight would like to start an instrument fund for the Conservatory and he will also donate a Pedler licorice stick clarinet.  Dwight will donate $500 and invites club members to contribute to this donation.  The Service Fund will be happy to receive the funds and we can write one generous check.  Another Rotarian has donated $200 to the cause. 

So, if you were as inspired as they were, you may contribute to this very worthwhile cause.  Please give checks written to the Rotary Club of Colorado Springs Service Fund (with Conservatory challenge in the memo line) to Harold Eichenbaum or mail them to: The Rotary Club of Colorado Springs, P.O Box 1558, Colorado Springs, 80903-1558.  This challenge ends September 30.

 

 

 

 

 

Are you interested in a Rotary Service trip to Ethiopia? We are in the early stages of planning a trip to Ethiopia for men and women.

The service would be to be with and encourage our girls (our club sponsors ten high school girls in rural Ethiopia) as well as hundreds of other high school students who we will meet through Trampled Rose.

If men are interested in going we would build toilets(maintainable, sustainable, clean and simple)  for one high school, which are badly needed.

Before we go too far in planning we want to see whether there is interest.

This would likely require  one full week off work + two weekends in January.

Each Rotarian would pay his/her own travel costs (approximately $2,900.00 + vaccinations)

Not too long ago, members of the Rotary Club of Colorado Springs took to the streets, armed with video cameras, a pop quiz and a vision of updating their century-old service club.
The third question - "What is Rotary?" - was a stumper.

"We asked people three different questions. One, 'Are you able to name the Kardashian sisters?' A high percentage knew that. Two, 'Could you name the governor of Colorado?" That was probably about 50-50," Rotary member Jason Aguilar said.
 
 
We would like to have as many members switch to the Rotary Direct system for your donations to the Rotary Foundation.  With Rotary Direct, your credit or debit card is charged for your monthly/quarterly/annual donation.  By doing that, our administrative time goes away for your donation and it is instantly doing Rotary's work.  
 
It's very simple -- fill out the form-found here:
 
Once completed, fax, mail it in or set up online.  Once you get a confirmation, please let Claudine know so your quarterly billing may be changed.  If you're not sure what your Rotary membership ID is, you can find it online in the My Rotary section at www.rotary.org -- still need some help, just e-mail Dennis Shoemaker or Claudine Dickson and we'll look it up for you.
 
Consider this -- if you're donating $25 a quarter, switch to $10 a month on Rotary Direct -- an easy way to increase your donation -- it's painless and you get miles on your card.
