Summit Rotary News
Last Week in Rotary
Marylin led us off with the inspiration last week at Rotary.
We then heard from Larry Stone who was the sponsor of January's Summit Daily Rotary page. Bill Sanders conducted a mini auction for the next year's monthly SDN sponsors. There are a few spots left for the year coming up, so if you are interested get in touch with Bill to get you name on the list. Thanks to our partnership with the Summit Daily News and Matt Sandbers, the cost to sponsor the monthly page is just $165 and tells the community about all of the great works we have been up to over the month.
Thanks to all who helped out last weekend at the Exchange Ski Weekend. Eric Fischer shared some thank you posters the students made, and shared that the weekend was a great success. No medical visits and no students were lost (at least not for too long). A good time was had by all.
We almost have enough to purchase a shelter box. Bernie passed around the hat again this week to collect enough to purchase a Shelter Box. It is a great program and if you want to learn more, I am sure Bernie would be happy to tell you more!
Thanks to the hard work of Dave Matthews and Art Burger our ICE MELT tickets can now be purchased online!
Our very own Sergeant at Arms, Lee Edwards, will be recruiting other Sergeant at Arms volunteers for the district conference this year, held in Keystone... Interested? talk to the guy wearing shorts
Jim Brook channeled Paul Harris again this week, sharing that if Paul had the benefit of someone like Bill Sanders helping with fundraising, he would have moved Rotary forward much quicker.
Blake Davis won the little pot, but the big pot of over $1,000 is still out there for the lucky winner.
President Peggy was serenaded with Birthday wishes in three languages at the meeting, and we got to play with fire!
The meeting was wrapped up with a presentation about Project Healing Waters. They are having a fundraising event on February 12th, more information can be found later in the bulletin.
Smile, we live in a great place!
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.
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 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.
