PUEBLO WEST ROTARY DAY - OCTOBER 3rd
This was truly a testimony to the work of our local club. October third was declared Pueblo West Rotary Day by both the Pueblo County Commissioners and by the Pueblo West Metropolitan Board. A ceremony commemorating these declarations and honoring visiting Rotary International President Gary Huang was held that afternoon at Civic Center Park. The backdrop for this event included our Oktoberfest site. Our own Jerry Martin, a man of many hats spoke for the Pueblo West Metro District and for our club. Other speakers at the event included the Pueblo West Chamber President, County Commissioner Liane “Buffy” McFadyen, and Governor Hickenlooper. President Huang toured some of our past projects prior to the ceremony and made remarks at the presentation. He led the group in the “Happy Clap”. Our president, Rick Clark presented a check to Pueblo West Parks and Recreation for $10,000 as a contribution for the new Frisbee Golf Course. This was followed by the ceremonial First Frisbee Toss by the assembled dignitaries. No one came close to the basket.

Sponsor a new member and you'll not only strengthen your club, you'll also get recognized for your efforts. Through the New Member Sponsor Recognition program, sponsors will now receive a specially designed Rotary pin and recognition on Rotary's website.
Simply enter new members into your club's records and identify the sponsor. Each week, Rotary will send clubs a packet containing the names of newly identified sponsors along with Rotary pins and as many as four different-colored pin backers. The color of the backer depends on the number of new members sponsored, ranging from blue for one member to gold for six or more.
Keep track of the number of members you've sponsored by checking your My Rotary profile page. Gold-level sponsors will also be listed in the Membership Recognition Gallery, and if they attend the convention, invited to join the RI president for a special recognition event.
All new members and their sponsors must be designated in club records in My Rotary to participate in the program. Sponsors of members who joined Rotary on or after 1 July 2013 are eligible.
