FOR THOSE ROTARIANS WHO MISSED THE TUESDAY, APRIL 21, 2015 MEETING
Spring Break – attendance was just 34%, but we did have a good meeting. Thank you to Ellen Kendall for our Club Day Program. We all got to know each other a little better by telling our table-mates of something each of us personally had never done, but that we expected one or more of our table-mates had done. If you got it right, you got a slip of paper from those table-mates who had done what you had not done. For example, if you said you had never been to Europe and any one or more of your table-mates had been to Europe, each of them had to give you a slip of paper. Then, Ellen turned the tables on us – those with the most slips of paper were the losers, because they had not had the life experiences their table-mates enjoyed. Thank you Ellen, that was fun. Then, Ellen had us use the slips of paper to record some Club related things, including favorite past Programs, that I am sure she will use in her upcoming Presidential term.
Thank you to our Greeters, Geneva Taylor and John Kuhn. John introduced our guests and visiting Rotarians. Thank you both.
Jim (“It is all about ‘Mud Season’”) Clark delivered our Thought for the Day. Jim took 9 mountain climbing axioms and applied them to operating a business – revealing and very effective! Thank you, Jim
Rachelle Summers served her first stint as our Good News solicitor. Rachelle did a great job, coaxing over $100.00 in donations to our Scholarship Fund from our lowest attendance meeting of the year, due to Spring Break. Rachelle, you will be called upon again to take care of Good News for us. Thank you for stepping up!

FOR THOSE ROTARIANS WHO MISSED THE TUESDAY, APRIL 14, 2015 MEETING
Our Program on Tuesday was: “An Inclusive Workforce,” organized and presented by Club member Ian Engle, Executive Director, Northwest Colorado Center for Independence. Ian was accompanied by his colleagues in the Inclusive Workforce Coalition of Steamboat: Brooke Lightner, Business Outreach Specialist, Division of Vocational Rehabilitation; Lisa Lorenz, Executive Director, Yampa Valley Autism Program and Mike Dwire, Routt County Vocational Coordinator, Horizons Specialized Services. Thank you Ian and Panel for this very informative Program. I watched some Club member’s eyes light up and wheels starting to turn in response to the benefits of your Inclusive Workforce concepts you conveyed.
Karen McRight and Jonathan Bishop served as our Greeters, and Jonathan introduced our guests and visiting Rotarians. Thank you Karen and Jonathan. Thought for the Day was presented by Lynaia South, referencing an on-line article written by her niece about her “Happy Place” – our home town of Steamboat Springs, Colorado.
We also celebrated Club Anniversaries: Alice Klauzer (20 yrs.), Debbie Aragon, (18 yrs.), Cam Boyd (15 yrs.), Steve Hitchcock, (11 yrs.) and Steve Sehnert, (33 yrs.)
We recognized and celebrated new Paul Harris Fellows, P.J. Wharton and Grant Fenton. Grant and P.J. were presented with their Certificates and Pins. Congratulations and thank you P.J. and Grant for your generous contributions to the Paul Harris Fellowship.
Lynaia announced that we have an incoming female Exchange Student from Germany. The Elliott’s will be the first host family. If you are interested in serving as a host family please get in touch with Lynaia.
Jim updated the Club members present about the preceding day’s Board of Directors’ Meeting. The highlight and the item most favorably received was the Boards’ decision to increase the number of scholarships for this Summer’s RYLA Program from 4 to 5 of our local High School students.
Jackie updated us on the Ski Town Golf Classic – June 12-13, 2015.
Steve advised us of the new date for the Barn Dance - September 26, 2015

FOR THOSE ROTARIANS WHO MISSED THE TUESDAY, APRIL 7, 2015 MEETING
Karen, (“It is all about the children”) McRight gave her Classification Talk today. One had to be awed and inspired by Karen and her husband, Rusty’s selfless dedication, generosity and above all, their love for children. Not many people would even think about doing what Karen and Rusty seem to do naturally. A great Classification Talk presentation Karen. It is a privilege to have someone of your caliber as a member of our Club.
We celebrated April Birthdays today as well: Ian Engle, David Scully, Sam Haslem, Jim Nowak, Peter Perhac, Randy Rudasics, John Centner and Todd Hayes. Happy Birthday Rotarians!
Thank you to our Greeter, Randy Rudasics, who also introduced our guest, Rusty McRight, Karen’s husband, who was there to support Karen in her Classification Talk.
Days before her official retirement day from: “The Sheraton,” Kristal Eckley provided our Thought for the Day, which, not surprisingly, had a “Retirement Theme.” Thank you Kristal and best wishes on your retirement. We will look forward to your return to Steamboat in June! You do so much for our Club!
We were able to present Dillon Fulcher with his Rotarian of the Month pin, joining Lynaia for their work on the District 5440 Exchange Student Ski Weekend in Steamboat earlier this season. Congratulations Dillon – well deserved!
We identified two new Paul Harris Fellows, and will get them their Certificates and pins – P.J. Wharton and Grant Fenton. We honored Robert Ralston with his Paul Harris Fellow + 4 pin. Congratulations to our new Paul Harris Fellows and especially Robert on his achievement!
Please follow-up with Ellen Kendall or Scott Marr on the Paver Recognition Form.
Thank you to Jane Denning Bedell, who took care of Good News for us today.
