FOR THOSE ROTARIANS WHO MISSED THE MEETING ON TUESDAY, MARCH 3.
A snowy and sunny Steamboat Day! Thanks to all who attended, but if you missed it …
We celebrated Rotarian Birthdays: Sharon Mensing (3rd) Coleman Cook (9th) Jackie Brown, Rachelle Summers, and Dan Bonner (12th) Bobby Davis (13th) Ashley Kane (16th) Jack Morrison (17th) Chris Stillwell (20th) Happy Birthday to all!
Greeters: Thank you to Rachelle Summers and Dan Hagney. Heard they even did the extra duty of hanging up our coats. Dan introduced Visiting Rotarians from Colorado to Australia and several important guests.
Thought for the Day - none delivered as Ellen forgot to bring up Dan Shields to do it!! So okay – the last last word goes to Marion Kahn and Carol Parish – from Ellen, “I really am a blonde!”
Club Ski Day – March 17th (John Holloway) A fun event with Ski Town USA Rotary Club participating too. We adjourn our meeting at 12:30, “car bombs” next door, followed by skiing (and something fun for non-skiers too) followed by apre ski (All invited to Saddles in Sheraton at 3:30 or so.) More on this next week!
Reminder: Seba, our exchange student from Argentina, will host his Bus Trip Fundraiser on March 18th from 6 pm – 8 pm at Emerald Mountain School Fellowship Hall. A BINGO night promises to be great fun. Mark your calendars and plan to attend. International check off for new members Good Beginnings Checklist! More silent auction items still needed: Contact Seba or Tara Weaver.
Locker Leftovers (Scott Marr) We have a bunch of stuff from our locker. Scott urged people to take (received contributions of $40.)
Grant Applications (Karl Gills) There was an error in the first two Grant Cycle announcements in the paper. Correct dates: Grant requests due by March 15, awarded by April 15.
RYLA Applications (Sharon Mensing) We can send 4 sophomore or junior students to RYLA and two 7th grade students to Young RYLA – a life changing leadership summer camp experience. Please pass the word. Information at www.rmryla.org. Application deadline online by March 31.
Dictionary Project (Cam Boyd) Shared a thank you from The Dictionary Project, a national non-profit. Since 2007 we have passed out 2,472 dictionaries to 3rd graders in Routt County. Thanks to all who participated in this very impactful project.
New Member Lunch Drawing (Tara Weaver) Monthly lunch drawing provided $40 for lunch or drinks for winners David Lamb and Jim Clark (new member) Winners are to have their get together within two weeks and be ready to share something they learned about each other at the next meeting.
Classification Talk by Rachelle Summers: A very informative and fun review of Rachelle’s young life (you did say 26? Right?) From Arizona ”a place where everything wants to hurt you” to Colorado…Glad you made the change! Thank you, Rachelle!
Peace Pavilion Update on Recognition Pavers: Steve Sehnert created a very moving slide show “Tribute to Peace” (and of course, also a tribute to our dear Michael Roberts) which gave us a wonderful history of the initial “sugar cube model” as it transformed into today’s Peace Pavilion. Thank you to Steve for a very special sharing.
John Holloway urged us to get our recognition paver forms turned in - paper form or thanks to David Wittlinger – an electronic version: http://rotarypeacepavilion.com/paver-recognition/ Scott Marr will follow up to make sure everyone gets a copy of the form and how to submit it. By the way, David’s usual creativity gave us a special treat when you press “SUBMIT.” FORMS DUE BY MARCH 15!
And speaking of Cat Stevens (now Yusuf who is back in the USA)… we are looking to find him and invite him to our dedication on August 11th. We’re not kidding – 6 degrees of separation with 100 people, we CAN find him! And it will be the greatest Rotary secret and surprise ever….
Next week’s Program: Tom Ross from Steamboat Pilot and Today, “Mountain Town Stories”
Good News: $229 Thanks to Past President Jane Denning Bedell
Lift up: $46.00 Thanks to Ron Thom
