News and Stories
Our club's November Board of Directors Meeting will be held tomorrow morning in the Jackson conference room at the Antlers Hotel (south end of the hotel).  The meeting starts at 7:30am and ends promptly at 9:00am.  It's a great way to check off an item to get your white badge, and make-up a missed meeting.

Call for Projects
The Rotary Club of Colorado Springs Service Fund board will be meeting in January to consider requests for funding for projects supported by Rotarians.  We would like to see a service opportunity for our rotary club associated with these requests and require at least three Rotarians who support the project to be named in the request.  Please submit requests by December 20, 2015.  The form can be downloaded from the RCCS Website. (Go to the website, click on Service Fund Projects, Click on Service Fund Project application.)  You may also contact Carol Bach or Judy Casey for assistance in planning your project.


PRIME is asking for your help with our Thanksgiving Project this year.  We met with Brent Urban, a teacher at Coronado High School and recipient of a Diamond Award this last year.  He is in charge of Cougars Care, which is a group he established at Coronado where students and faculty grant students with financial hardships either funds to purchase school items, pay fees, bus passes, etc.  The funds that CSF has set aside for our Thanksgiving project will be donated to Cougars Care.  During our conversation, Mr. Urban informed us that Care and Share had to cutback on their donations to the their club and that has left them struggling to fill their food pantry.  Please help our project and donate to Cougars Care!
