l-r: President Tom Ashcraft, RI Foundation Chair Jon Northrop, PDG George Mendenhall
The Rotary International Foundation recognized the estate of Susan Mendenhall, late wife of PDG George Mendenhall, with a beautiful crystal plaque for her bequest contribution of $5,000.00. Long a supporter of the Rotary Foundation as well as our own Littleton Rotary Foundation, the Mendenhall’s generosity has helped make Littleton Rotary a far more significant movement for community improvement than it might otherwise have been. 
 
 
Perry Nissler looks on as CFO & Founder Steve Tautz points out inner workings of GPS tracking electronics.
 
Club member, Steve Tautz, founder of Lat-Lon, the industry leading GPS asset tracking company in the US, recently invited club members to a tour of his facility. “Amazing” hardly begins to describe the technology being implemented in his company.
 
 
Littleton Rotary volunteers once again participated in the collecting and distributing the flower and plant arrangements left over at the conclusion of the Denver Garden & Home Show. Known as Flower Power, the event requires volunteers to assemble at the Denver Convention Center late in the afternoon of the last day of the show to begin boxing all the flowers and storing them in semi-trailers overnight. The following day, more volunteers arrive at the Convention Center to collect the boxes and distribute them to area assisted living centers and to Meals On Wheels for delivery to their clients.
 
The smiles on the faces of the recipients are priceless. Our thanks to all the Rotary volunteers, their family members and friends who helped make this year’s event a total success. A special thank you to our Rotary Youth Exchange student from Brazil, Tiago Martins, for his great help in the effort.
 

 
On January 21st, Rotarians, friends, and family members enjoyed the ever popular and exciting Rotary Night at the National Western Stock Show and Rodeo. Many chose to experience the event by arriving early and viewing the livestock, checking out the myriad of vendors in the Exhibit Hall, viewing the wonderful collection of art exhibited at the annual Coors Western Art Show and Sale, and enjoying dinner in the exclusive National Western Club prior to the PRCA Rodeo.

January 20, 2015 was a very special day at Littleton Rotary. On behalf of the Rotary International Foundation, the late Honorary Littleton Rotarian, Mary Bradford was honored by Rotary District Governor Peter Ewing, as a Major Donor and Bequest Society Member for her estate’s contribution of $10,000.00. Those funds were specifically earmarked for the Polio-Plus Program to eradicate polio through world-wide inoculations of children in all countries.
 
The following is a recent article by Jennifer Smith of the Littleton Independent highlighting Mary’s lifetime of service to the greater Littleton Community and to the efforts of Rotary to eradicate polio:

Recently, many of the women leaders in Littleton Rotary were in attendance and gathered for this happy group picture. Rotary has welcomed women members in the U.S. since 1987 and worldwide beginning in 1989. Thank goodness! Any institution that purposely excludes one half of the potential brain-power of its population is doomed. Rotary has been honored to have women become active leaders and doers in its efforts to solve community problems and expand Rotary’s good works in ways that had never been possible before their involvement.
 
Littleton Rotary has certainly been blessed by having two women members serve as President of our Club; Darlee Whiting, 1999-2000, LaDonna Jurgensen, 2004-2005. Both set the benchmark for their excellent leadership and skills in managing all the various programs and projects our Club is involved with. Our Club looks forward to many more women joining and becoming a vital part of Littleton’s most significant and active service club.
 

 
Over 100 Rotary volunteers turn out to help the Town of Lyons.
 
 


I Can Read and Homework Club at Centennial Academy

It's a special time for students when Rotarians and community members volunteer to participate in the I Can Read Program at Centennial Academy of Fine Arts. This simple and effective program pares volunteers with teachers and select students to share time in supporting reading skills by simply listening to students read.
