Convention: City of peace
Though Atlanta has seen its share of violence and inequity over time, today it brims with reminders that there is another way. Get inspired while you’re visiting for the 2017 Rotary International Convention from 10 to 14 June. Take a short walk from the convention center to the Center for Civil and Human Rights. There, you can see the handwritten notes, speeches, and sermons of civil rights leader Martin Luther King Jr., experience an interactive 1960s-era lunch counter “sit-in,” and learn more about persecuted groups all over the world. A streetcar will take you to the Martin Luther King Jr...

Satellite Meeting News  

Our next meeting will be held on Monday, January 23th.   Our program will be "Rotary Group Study Exchange Trip to Brazil", presented by former GSE team member and the newest member of Summit Rotary,  Susanne Ebling. 
 
Most Satellite members have agreed to collectively sponsor a young student through the Guatemala Literacy Program. The scholarship will cost $70 a month for four years.  Details as to how you can contribute and where to send your annual contribution will be discussed during Monday's meeting.   We are also looking forward to another project at Bob Ashley's Village Water Filters in Silverthorne one evening before the end of this month; please respond to Erin Bastman with your preference for dates.
 
Our Satellite meetings are held from 6:00-7:15 pm on the 2nd and 4th 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.  If you have questions or would like to present your passion as a program at one of our meetings, please contact Jim Brook at 970-409-8995 or at jimbrook22@gmail.com or any of our Satellite members.

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 his/her application, sponsor form, a short bio and $100 application fee to the Membership Director, STEPHANIE KATZ or any one on the Membership Committee.  The application will be presented to the Membership Committee for approval and then the Board of Directors.  Once approved, the applicant's bio will be posted in our bulletin for 3 weeks.  If there are no questions about the Prospective Member the induction will be scheduled.  

The primary sponsor will mentor the new member through the Red Badge process.  We encourage all 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 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: Stephanie Katz, Julianne Gilchrist, Tom Marmins, Sandy Mortensen, Ann Clement, Susan Juergensmeier, Rolando Cuadrado, Dan Gibbs, Mike Connolly and Peggy Beeler.
