Satellite Meeting News
At our "3rd Monday" Satellite meeting on March 16, we welcomed prospective new member Dr. Kami Wallner, and discussed its plans to organize and host our Rotary Club's Ski & Ride Beach Party at Arapahoe Basin on Sunday, May 3. Karen Wray was presented with her Paul Harris +1 pin in recognition for her continuing donations to The Rotary Foundation, which funds matching grants that support many Rotary projects including our work on the Guatemala Literacy Project. Other discussion included the history of the annual Ice Melt Contest and current ticket sales efforts. We missed Kevin Burns who was off celebrating his 30th birthday! Erin Gigliello delivered an Irish inspiration and blessing, and Jason Brewer presented the meeting's main program on the proper care, tuning, and waxing of skis and snowboards, drawing on his extensive personal experience with those techniques and helping all of us realize that we've been sadly neglecting our gear ! Our next Satellite meeting is on the "5th Monday", March 30, 6 pm, at the Backcountry Brewery in Frisco; all Rotarians are welcome.
Our Satellite meetings are held from 6:00 - 7:15 pm on the 1st, 3rd, and 5th Mondays of every month in a private room in the Backcountry Brewery, corner of Main St and Hwy 9 / Summit Blvd in Frisco. All Rotarians are welcome and we hope that you'll invite your friends and colleagues to check us out as well! No advance notice needed.

Membership Committee News
We want to thank all of those sponsors who are identifying community leaders/business professionals and bringing them to our meetings. Remember, a Prospective Member should attend 3 meetings before turning in their application, sponsor form, a short bio and $100 application fee to JULIEANNE GILCHRIST or any one on the Membership Committee. The application will then be presented to the Membership Committee for approval and then the Board of Directors. Once approved their name and bio will be posted in our bulletin for 3 weeks. If there are no questions about the Prospective Member the induction will be scheduled.
If you would like to be a Mentor to a new member please see Ann Clement. We encourage new members to interact with Prospective/New Members as much as possible. One of the Red Badge requirements is to be a Greeter 3 times. Because our club is growing and we are experiencing so many guests, greeters are so very important. You don't have to be a new member to be a greeter. It is just one more way of participating in Club Service.
Membership Committee Members are: Tom Marmins, Sandy Mortensen, Ann Clement, Susan Juergensmeier, Rolando Cuadrado, Peggy Beeler, Doug Berg, Celia Johnson.
