Several members of the  Satellite Rotary Club of Highlands Ranch volunteered at Inter Faith Community Services November 19. They helped many other volunteers in assembling food baskets for their annual Thanksgiving program. 450 families and 100 seniors will be able to enjoy a Thanksgiving meal thanks to IFCS. Our Rotary club is proud to be associated with this center who provides much needed services to our local communities.

The Town of Lyons wants to send a HUGE thank you to everyone who volunteered their time and hard work this weekend toward the Lyons Town Hall Plaza!! We'd also like to thank Honeywell, Rotary Club Districts 5440 & 5450, Blue Mountain Stone, University of Colorado at Denver's College of Architecture, Filanc Construction, and Frachetti Engineering for their generous donations and efforts to this project. Come by Town Hall to see the amazing renovation so far!

Highlands Ranch Rotary clubs attended the 3rd annual Highlands Ranch Senior
Health and Information Fair on November 7. There were 58 service providers on
hand to provide information and answer questions facing seniors. The two
Rotary clubs were represented by Linda Blackstone and Ann Mather of the
morning Satellite club and Bill Simmermon the lunch time club. A gourmet
wine basket was won by Kari Larese with the Highlands Ranch Metro District.
 
   
 

 
 
The Rotary Club of Highlands Ranch – Satellite teamed up with the Inter-Faith Community Services’ Ready Set School Enrichment Program to give the tools of success to low-income children in our community and send them back to school ready to learn.  Rotarians teamed up to provide non-perishable food donations and backpacks filled with school supplies for K-12 students going to Western Arapahoe and Northern Douglas County schools. 
 
Each year, Inter-Faith works with community organizations to  provide backpacks and supplies to area schools for distribution.  Last year, Interfaith provided 1,091 backpacks to students in need.   Projections for this year are to surpass last year’s demand for backpacks, clothing, food, and supplies. The average cost of sending each student back to school is $250. This puts a strain on their already fragile financial situation. Inter-Faith also sees the demand for food increasing during the summer months, as many students are away from subsidized breakfast and lunch school programs.

 

 

 

Today, there are only three countries where the poliovirus still exists: Afghanistan, Nigeria, and Pakistan. Fewer than 250 polio cases were reported worldwide in 2012, which is a 99% reduction since the 1980s, when the world saw about 1,000 cases per day. If we don't stay the course, experts say polio could rebound

Several members of the Highlands Ranch Satellite Club joined with the Castle Rock Club to help with conduct the Task Force Recycling Event where citizens can recycle electronic appliances and computers.  The volume of recycle was enormous and the event was a great success.
 
 

 

 
Several of us from the Highlands Ranch Satellite Club joined over 20 volunteers from the Littleton Rotary club to fix up a house and yard of an elderly woman in Littleton.  It's amazing what 20 people with tools and chainsaws can accomplish in just 4 hours.  We cleaned the yard of excess vegetation, replaced rotting boards, and painted the entire front of the house.  The resident was very appreciative of our efforts and learned first hand about the power of Rotary in the community.    
 
 
 

The Littleton Sunrise Rotary Club responded to a citizen in need by helping him comply with local fire and health department requirements.  Our citizen needed help moving the contents of his former video store into a storage facility.  Five members of the Sunrise club and the Littleton noon club assisted in moving a large inventory of video store materials and shelving from a one room apartment into storage.  The job took 5 hours of hard work, but allowed our citizen to safely remain in his home.

Rotary AIDS day event turns spotlight on world’s deadliest infectious disease
The recent Ebola outbreak in West Africa, the worst ever, has claimed several thousand lives and generated worldwide concern. But its impact pales in comparison to that of AIDS, which, despite advances in treatment, still kills more than a million people a year, the majority of them in Africa. "Even with the Ebola outbreak at its worst expected levels, it's never going to reach what we've seen with the HIV/AIDS epidemic," said Dr. Timothy B. Erickson, director of the Center for Global Health at the University of Illinois at Chicago, speaking at Rotary's World AIDS Day event in Evanston on 1...
Statement by Rotary International on the deadly school attack in Pakistan
Rotary International condemns the horrific attack that killed more than 130 schoolchildren and wounded over 100 of their classmates in Peshawar, Pakistan. We believe that children everywhere have the basic right to receive an education in an environment unthreatened by violence or fear. Rotary extends our heartfelt sympathy to all of the families in Pakistan, including those of seven Rotary members, who have lost children as a result of this unfathomable tragedy. We stand with them in mourning their loss. Gary C.K. Huang, PresidentRotary International
Indoor air pollution linked to millions of deaths
After decades dreaming about the Himalayas, Rotary member George Basch went on his first trek through the mountains in 2001, when he was 64. A member of the Rotary Club of Taos-Melagro in New Mexico, USA, Basch found that the experience was even more than he had hoped. "My expectations were high, and dramatically exceeded," he remembers. But a less-than-pleasant aspect of the experience was the indoor smoke pollution he encountered in the guest houses and private homes he visited. Many families in the Himalayas use rudimentary cookstoves or, in some cases, an open fire pit inside the home to...
Rotary staff members bond over Miles to End Polio bike ride
For six staff members from Rotary headquarters in Evanston, the fight to eradicate polio has become personal. Together, they biked the physically grueling 104-mile (167-kilometer) Tour de Tucson in Arizona, USA, collectively raising more than $20,000 for polio eradication while putting their bodies and minds through a feat of endurance. For the tightknit group, the experience was about more than just raising money and crossing the finish line. It was about learning about each other and what Rotary members are doing to rid the world of this crippling disease. They advocated together, trained...
How a simple school project in India became a global grant
Two years ago, U.S. Rotary members in Maine set out to improve the education system in Bikaner, Rajasthan, an Indian city near the border of Pakistan. The Rotary Club of Kennebunk Portside chose Bikaner because club member Rohit Mehta was originally from the area and had connections there. Mehta put the club in contact with Rotarians in India to provide desks for four government-run schools. But when community leaders returned with a request for more desks, the Maine Rotarians decided they had to think bigger. The Rotary Foundation had rolled out its new grant model, which required that the...
