FOR THOSE ROTARIANS WHO MISSED THE MEETING ON TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 18, 2014
Our Program on Tuesday was to receive: “thank you’s” from representatives of various groups in the community to which we provide assistance. Margaret Lichtenfels kicked it off as representative of our Steamboat Springs High School Interact Club. Margaret was followed by Laura Schmidt, Executive Director of Lift-Up. We also heard from the Boy Scouts, Scout, Ian Savage and Scout Master, Dan Ragan, who presented a slide show and a thank you card signed by members of the troop.
It is a pleasure to support each of these groups. You contribute so much to the community. We are proud of our association with you and look forward to our continuing relationship.
Marcie Valicenti provided our Thought for the Day. Marci inspired us with the story of a sports team that “adopted” a handicapped child and observed how wonderful it would be if other sports teams followed suit. Thank you Marci for that inspiring story.
Thank you to our Greeters, Tracy Barnett and Brad Meeks. Tracy also introduced our guests, (25 of them!), and visiting Rotarians.

Last, but certainly not least, Carol Parish and Steve Sehnert, Co-Chairs of the Barn Dance Committee, recognized their Committee members who worked so hard to make that event such a success. Lynna Broyles and a number of other representatives from the Boys and Girls Club were on hand. Two of the Boys and Girls Club members told us how the Boys and Girls Club helps them in their lives. Then, Carol and Steve presented the Boys and Girls Club with a check from the proceeds of the Barn Dance in the amount of $22,934.00!

FOR THOSE ROTARIANS WHO MISSED THE MEETING ON TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 11, 2014
On Tuesday, November 11, 2014, we remembered and paid tribute to our wonderful friend and outstanding Rotarian, Michael Roberts, who left us all too soon and too suddenly. Michael was an extremely active Rotarian. Among other things, Michael served as a Past Club President and was one of the main “movers and shakers” in building the Rotary Boardwalk and, most recently in erecting the Peace Pavilion at Rotary River Park. We were joined by Michael’s Family, Marne, and children Ryan, Drew and Tina, plus a few other members of the Roberts Clan. The Roberts Family’s presence made our meeting extra special. The remembrances and tributes for Michael, in a Good News format, capably orchestrated by Brian Harvey, lasted almost an hour. We then saluted Michael with a “Bon Voyage” champagne toast and wished him – “Godspeed.”. This was a very special Rotary meeting that we will all remember and cherish for a long time. Ellen Kendall, John Holloway and Scott Marr deserve our thanks for arranging this very special meeting.
We also remembered our Veterans with a strong and rousing Pledge of Allegiance, at the outset of the meeting.
Thank you to John Kuhn who served as our GREETER and introduced our special guests, the Roberts Family, and all our other guests and visiting Rotarians who wanted to share this meeting with us.
Ian Engle gave us our THOUGHT FOR THE DAY and continued our theme of paying tribute to our Veterans and to Michael’s memory.
Thank you to Eric Rabesa for creating a new Club Directory for us. Super detailed job – well done! Thank you also to Jeff Swoyer for printing the Club Directory.
Lynna Broyles announced the upcoming Ethics Program, “Standing Tall,” Friday, November 14, 2014 at Colorado Mountain College, a partnership among: The Boys & Girls Club, the Chamber and Leadership Steamboat.
Lynaia South updated us on the District 5440 Exchange Student Ski Trip and Retreat to Steamboat.

FOR THOSE ROTARIANS WHO MISSED THE MEETING ON TUESDAY, OCTOBER 28, 2014
Tuesday, October 28, 2014 was “Fritz Aurin Day.” We recognized and Honored Fritz Aurin with our Appreciation Award, a Paul Harris Fellow Award and a Gift Certificate to Haymaker Golf Course for his continuing and dedicated support of our Club. Happily, Fritz’s spouse Bethany was able to accompany Fritz and witness our honoring him on: “His Day.” Fritz, in turn, shared the awards with Bethany. Many thanks to Brian Harvey for being the catalyst and intermediary in this whole process and making it such a surprise for Fritz and Bethany. Brian was key to the whole operation.
Dr. Brian Harrington gave us our: Thought for the Day. Brian shared some quotes from an infectious disease physician from years ago. Particularly timely in terms of “Ebola” and other concerns we face today. Thank you, Brian.
In that vein, Happy Birthday – Dr. Jonas Saulk – inventor of the first Polio Vaccine.
Thank you to our Greeters, Lynaia South and Ashley Kane. Lynaia also introduced our guests and visiting Rotarians. Thank you, Lynaia.
We first recognized Coleman Cook, for stepping up in Michael Roberts’ absence to organize the “Landscaping Crew” at the Peace Pavilion. Then, we recognized the: “Landscaping Crew.” The crew planted 32 dogwood bushes, which will probably be the last major activity at the Peace Pavilion, before we shut down for the Ski Season. Thank you all - what a Project! (Ellen Kendall gave us an up-date on Michael and Michael remains in our thoughts and prayers for a complete and quick recovery.)
The Nominating Committee is seeking Applications for the 2015-2016 BOD. Applications are on the Web-site. Please consider serving on our BOD.
Something happened with our “New Member –‘Seasoned Member’” Lunch Raffle…
We honored and recognized our Rotarians of the Month, Carol Parish and Steve Sehnert for their outstanding work on The Barn Dance. Thank you so much Carol and Steve for your countless
hours of work on that event and thank you to the Barn Dance Committee.
Good News was capably handled by Brian Harvey, as usual. We netted $144.20 on an abbreviated Good News. Thank you, again, Brian.
We had one of our best Programs this Rotary year. Cheryl Krumrie introduced her husband, Tim
Krumrie, who gave us an insider’s view of the National Football League. Tim showed a film of his career, punctuated with insightful comments and some great stories. Not one person left before Tim was done. Thank you so much Tim for sharing those experiences, the vast majority of us can only live vicariously.
