FOR THOSE ROTARIANS WHO MISSED THE TUESDAY, JUNE 23, 2015 MEETING
This was Jim’s last regular meeting as Club President. We will be: “Changing the Guard,” next Tuesday, June 30, 2015, at 5:00 PM, at the Rotary Peace Pavilion in Rotary River Park. It includes a: Family Bar-B-Que, 2014-2015 Rotary Year-end Awards and Recognition, introduction of the 2015-2016 Board of Directors and other fun activities.
It was much appreciated and very appropriate that the last meeting of the 2014-2015 Rotary Year closed with such a powerful Program by our Steamboat Springs neighbor and friend, Kim Hess. Her Program on her experiences on Mt. Everest during the earthquake a few months ago was nothing short of amazing, breathtaking and awe-inspiring. Thank you so much Kim and we are so grateful for your safe return home.
Julie Taulman and Kerry Shea served as our Greeters. Julie also introduced our guests and visiting Rotarians. Thank you both.
Jim gave our Thought for the Day. Jim took the opportunity to do a brief re-cap of his year as Club President, reserving the details of his 2014-2015 Year for the “Changing of the Guard.” Jim thanked the Club for its support, (during a sometime trying year), all the work done by the Club members for the benefit of our Steamboat Springs community, and for all our fellowship and the great parties we all enjoyed this past year.
Scott Marr and Grant Fenton, Foundation Co-Chairs, distributed the remaining Jack Black Fellowship Awards to: Sam Haslem, Steve Sehnert and Jeremy Behling. Thank you, gentlemen for your generosity and support of our local Jack Black Foundation.
We inducted Otis Wragg as our latest: “Best New Member Ever.” Ellen did the honors. Otis was sponsored by Kerry Shea and Rich Gloor. Welcome Otis, we are glad you are with us.
Scott and Lynaia told the Club about the District 5440 Conference in Fort Collins, Colorado last weekend and displayed all our District Awards: “Light Up Rotary” – Peace Pavilion; Community Service – Peace Pavilion, Future of Rotary – (Most members under 40 years of age), Vocational Service Award, Presidential Citation Award, and our Interact Club at the Steamboat Springs High School received the District Presidential Citation Interact Award. We cleaned up! Congratulations to all members of the Rotary Club of Steamboat Springs and our Interact Club at the Steamboat Springs High School.
Grant is organizing the 4th of July Parade. Watch Club-runner e-mails for the date to construct the float. We will need as much help as possible
Please say thank you to the Heberts and Forneys for hosting our visiting Rotarians from India. We lived the concept of Rotary’s Friendship Exchange.
Thank you to Kris Hammond for again taking care of Good News for us.
Good News: $202.00
Attendance: 60% (Approx.)

FOR THOSE ROTARIANS WHO MISSED THE TUESDAY, JUNE 16, 2015 MEETING
We received an update on the USA Pro-Challenge from Kara Stoller and Jim Schneider on behalf of the Chamber Resort Association. Steamboat Springs will be on the world cycling stage in August! Thank you both for all your work on this project! Here are the links:
Sharon Mensing was our Greeter and introduced our guests and visiting Rotarians. Thank you, Sharon.
Jim provided our Thought for the Day and once again resorted to: “Paraprosdokian Sentences” and “Disorder in the American Courts.”
Thank you to Kris Hammond for encouraging a record-breaking Good News, if not in Club History, at least for this Rotary year. See, below.
June was very busy, and at the time of the meeting, we were just half way through!
We recognized and thanked Kathy and Gillian for their phenomenal work on the Flower Barrels. We recognized all those Club members who delivered the Flower Barrels on Tuesday and Wednesday, June 9 and 10, 2015. We really have helped to beautify our town. Thank you again, Gillian and Kathy.
Next we recognized and thanked our Ski Town Golf Classic, team led by Jackie Brown and so ably assisted by Tara Weaver and Glen Traylor, as Co-chairs. We also recognized the rest of the Committee. It is a monumental job and the weekend, June 12-13, 2015 was a great success. This is our biggest fund-raiser and we could not do it without all the help we received from our Club members. Thank you again, Jackie, Tara, Glen and the entire Ski Town Golf Classic Committee.
As if this was not busy enough, Rotary Action was published as an insert to Steamboat Today on Friday, June 12, 2015. Fantastic job Public Relations Committee! A special Kudos and well done to Lisa Schlichtman for taking the laboring oar on that issue. Thank you all.
Still looking for volunteers to assist with the Peace Pavilion Dedication Committee, (August 11, 2015) and the 4th of July Parade.
Next Meeting: Tuesday June 23, 2015 – “The Grand” – Kim Hess – “This Season on Everest”

Flower Barrels are high on the Agenda this week. Tuesday and also Wednesday, (not by design), we delivered flowered barrels and beautified our city. Tuesday evening we had a Bar-B-Que at the Rodeo Grounds for Rotarians and families, catered by: The Smokehouse, Butcherknife Brewery and Central Park Liquors. Thank you to our caterers. But, most of all a huge Thank You to Kathy Elliott and Gillian Morris, who ran the Flower Barrel show, from start to finish. Save the date: Flower Barrel pick-up, Tuesday, September 15, 2015 – followed by a Bar-B-Que!
We need a Rotarian to step up and Chair organizing our entry in the 4th of July Parade. Suzanne Schlicht will help, but will be out of town over the 4th of July weekend.
Suzanne also stepped up to help us say: “Farewell” to former very active Club Rotarian, Jenny Wall. Jenny and Gary moved on Wednesday to Santa Cruz, CA. Jenny’s last of many contributions to our Club was serving on the Peace Pavilion Committee and designing the logo for it. Jenny, we thank you for all your many contributions to our Club and our Steamboat Springs community. You will be missed and please know that you are always welcome here.
Also, high on the Agenda this week is our preparations for the Ski Town Golf Classic this Friday and Saturday, June 12 and 13, 2015. “Big doings” Friday evening at The Sheraton! We also have over 100 golfers registered for golf at the Catamount Golf Club on Saturday. Thank you to all our sponsors for all their support, especially Alpine Bank, our presenting sponsor. Another huge Thank You to Jackie Brown, Chair, Co-Chairs Tara Weiss and Glenn Traylor, and the entire Committee for all the work each of you have put in to what will no doubt be a very successful event.
