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...

Junior Achievement volunteers needed at Upper Blue Elementary this winter:
 
JA is in need of a volunteer to lead a program for a 2nd grade class at Upper Blue Elementary this Winter.
 
JA Our Community program uses posters and games to offer practical information about businesses and the many jobs those businesses offer in a community. Students explore production methods through a simulation game, and they learn about taxes, decision making, and how money flows in an economy.
There are five sessions, typically once a week for five weeks. All activity materials and easy to follow guidebook are provided to the volunteer, along with training and support.
It’s so much fun to teach this program and the children love the activities.

Satellite Meeting News  

The participants at our November 28th  meeting were introduced to Jennifer McAtamney, town of Breckenridge’s program director for child care.  Jennifer shared her introspective experience with her need assessment for child care  in the town of Breckenridge and the challenges that she met.  This was an eye opener for all of us.  The members who were present unanimously voted to cancel our fourth Monday meeting on December 26th.  Stay tuned for a make-up meeting at the Village Water Filter that will be arranged by Erin Bastman.  In the meantime, members are invited to help with the Tuesday evening community dinner on December 13th, 20th, or 27th.
Our next meeting will be held on Monday, December 12th and will be hosted by Benedicte Jeanson.
        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.
