Last Week in Rotary
Gary Nicholds led us off with an inspiration reminding us that patience is a virtue.
We heard from a gentleman from the Republic of Georgia who is here for a year but lost needs a place to stay for November and December. If you have room in your home and would be interested in helping, please talk with Lee Edwards or Betty Naftz who have more details.
Next week - Wendy Myers will be starting the collection for the Thanksgiving dinner. Don't be a turkey, bring some cash to donate!
The Rotary night at Community Dinner was on Tuesday night. There was a great thank you to the sponsors of the Community Dinner in the monthly Summit Daily News page that came out last week as well. Larry Stone was the sponsor of this month's page.
Get ready to celebrate! Lori Burke has kindly offered to host the Holiday Party at her home. More details to come, but mark the date of December 17th. This will be a celebration that you do not want to miss.
Flu Shots will be available next week both before the meeting at 6:45am and after the meeting is over. Diane Monaghan will be sending out more information via e-mail. Please RSVP to the message so that we can have an accurate estimate for the health care providers.
There was no school on Tuesday, but we still got to hear from Julia - our Brazilian exchange student - who has been taking advantage of some of Colorado's amazing places. Last week it was Glenwood hot springs.
Charlotte Jacobsen gave a classification talk, explaining to us all how a sailing trip to Bermuda can lead to moving to Summit County (and no, they did not get lost.) We have some fascinating individuals in our club!
The Membership committee is looking for new members! There is a meeting this week, but if you are curious about what the membership committee does, please see Julieanne Gilchrist for more information.
Paul's hat was provided by our very own multi talented ski patrolling, instructing, snowmobile wrangling Wendy Myers. Speaking of Paul Harris, the upcoming months threaten to be chilly for Paul. Help keep Paul warm and end Polio by putting your chapeau on Paul's head. See Lee Edwards to reserve your day.
The Raffle winner was Sharron Butler, who reduced the deck to 50 cards and kindly left the ace of spades in the deck for another try next week.
President Peggy Beeler hinted that next week we will be having some Halloween fun. Come dressed in your favorite costume to the meeting!
Next week we have the pleasure of hearing Ted Lawson from the Wounded Warriors Family Ski Week. Until then, enjoy this beautiful amazing place we live!
Our satellite meetings are held from 5:30 - 6:45 pm on the first and third 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.
Every second Wednesday of the month, Rotarians have been gathering for Happy Hour from 5:00 to 6:30. If you haven't checked it out, pencil it in and come by and socialize, on one or any of the following dates... SEE YOU THERE!
Our next Happy Hour will be:
The Happy Hour Committee members are:
Judy Irwin, Julieanne Gilchrist, David Matthews, Aleda Kresge, Lynn Myers and Ann Clement. Some of us will be at each of the Happy Hours to welcome everyone. If you would like to be on the Happy Hour Committee, please contact Judy Irwin and/or Julieanne Gilchrist.
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. 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.
