Grant survey shows solid support for new model
More than 6,000 Rotary members in 154 countries reported on their experiences with the new grant model as part of an evaluation during the 2015-16 Rotary year. The results will help us improve the grant process and learn what impact the Foundation's global grants have on our areas of focus. Among the key findings: 90 percent of respondents support the grant model; 86 percent see it as an improvement over the former model.

John Germ: Champion of Chattanooga
From the July 2016 issue of The Rotarian Just before John Germ dropped by, Rick Youngblood took a deep breath. “You want to match his energy,” he says, “but he makes it hard to keep up.” Youngblood is the president and CEO of Blood Assurance, a regional blood bank in Chattanooga, Tenn., that Germ helped found in 1972. After his visit with Youngblood, Germ strode between mountains of empty bottles and cans at Chattanooga’s John F. Germ Recycling Center at Orange Grove, which he designed, before he drove to a construction site and popped a cork to dedicate a Miracle League field where special...

Like the autumn leaves
We are changing 
 
Transforming into something new
Making our own opinions
Creating our own path  
We are changing  
 
Like a piece of art
We are changing
 
Painting our own pictures of the world
Taking something Ugly and making it Beautiful
Trying new things 
We are changing  
 
We are the teenagers of our generation
Trying to change the world 
Making our own ideas 
Making this our dreamworld 
 
Fighting for our rights
Sneaking in the night
Searching for new ideals
Learning how to deal 
 
We are changing  
Becoming something better
Becoming something new
We are changing

Satellite Meeting News 

 
The members and guests of the Satellite Club met on Monday, July 11th  at the Backcountry Brewery in Frisco.  Rotarian and pharmacist Erin Bastman gave an interesting talk about her first experience on a Summit in Honduras medical mission trip, and the group discussed opportunities for non medical participants to contribute during future trips. Car raffle tickets were distributed - all members are encouraged to sell early and often!  The average sales per member each year is 2 to 3 packets of 30 tickets, and of course we all consider ourselves 'above average'.   Members and friends are invited to hike 'Rotary Peak' from the top of Loveland Pass starting at 9 am Saturday, July 23 - a very scenic but easy hike, 1.5 miles each way with limited elevation gain. Our next meeting is on Monday, July 25th  at 6 pm at the Backcountry Brewery in Frisco.  Everyone interested in Rotary is welcome to attend !

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 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, 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.  

Once you choose to sponsor, the primary sponsor will be responsible to 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, Deb Irvine, Tom Marmins, Sandy Mortensen, Ann Clement, Susan Juergensmeier, Rolando Cuadrado, and Peggy Beeler.
