NEW MEETING LOCATION FOR THIS THURSDAY
JANUARY 18
 
Cherry Hills Country Club is still closed until January 22nd for sewer repairs.  So we are holding our January 18th, 2018 meeting again at the:
 
Madden Museum
6363 South Fiddlers Green Circle
Greenwood Village, CO 80111
 
This is our second meeting at this location.  Our start (7:15) and end (8:45) times don’t change.  The Museum can be accessed from all four directions, but it is south of Orchard Road and North of Arapahoe Road, on the west side of Interstate 25.  The museum is 1 ½ blocks driving east on E. Caley Avenue from the Legacy Cascade building where we hold our monthly board meetings.  The building is adjoining Marjory Park and Garden and Fiddler’s Green Amphitheater on the west side.  The driveway to turn into the building is very noticeable because there is a green building there with the words BOX OFFICE on it.
 
Now – why is it worth navigating to a new temporary location on a cold and dark morning?  Besides listening to a great speaker (Dr. Ron Lee from CCHS) on a great topic (Student Mental Health in the CCHS district), here is another great reason:
 
This location and restaurant are strong contenders for our temporary 18 to 24-month meeting location and hiatus from Cherry Hills Country Club while they are remodeling their main building.  If you don’t come to one or both meetings at this site, you can’t complain about the food, location, parking or facilities. Your comments and opinions are important, so please show up!  We will set up the New Location Committee at the Feb. 1st meeting and ask for your feedback on that breakfast. 
 
Here are directions coming from Arapahoe and I25
1.       Exit I25 North or South onto Arapahoe Road (Exit 197).
2.       Turn west at that exit towards the mountains.
3.       Turn right/north on the first stoplight after I25: S. Yosemite St.
4.       Take the first left turn west (2nd light) onto E. Peakview Ave and go 1.5 blocks to the stoplight at S. Fiddlers Green Circle.
5.       Turn right/north on S. Fiddlers Green Circle and go 2/3rd around the curve to a light on an unnamed street (actually a drive to the building).  This street is notable because of the small green/brown building titled BOX OFFICE on the southwest corner.  
6.       You can park in the lot with the green/brown box office building (about 40 spaces), or continue around the circle in front of the building.  The building has a big 6363 sign on it, has a slightly curved front face and is about 10 to 12 stories.  See the picture below.
7.       There is also a parking lot with about 80 spaces to the SE side of the building, past the front door.
 
The above directions have been certified by Lou Webb. :)
 
If you are coming on Arapahoe Road from the west, turn north/left on Greenwood Plaza Blvd and go all the way to the light at East Caley Avenue.  Fiddler’s Green Amphitheater will be immediately on the SE corner.  Turn right on Greenwood Plaza and go immediately past the Park to the first right-hand turn.  You are back at the Box Office and building driveway.
 
If you are coming from Orchard or Belleview from the north, go east or west to Quebec.  Then turn south on Quebec to the stoplight at East Caley Ave.  That is the corner and building where our Board meetings are held.  Turn left/east on East Caley Avenue and continue for two long blocks, past South Syracuse Way and Greenwood Plaza Boulevard towards Fiddler’s Green Amphitheater.  Continue east for 1/8th of a mile to the first right-hand turn.  Turn right into the area with the BOX Office and building driveway.

Do you have a succinct explanation of Rotary when someone asks you- what some would call an "elevator speech"? Here is a possible response, authored by Jim Creamer:

Rotary is an international organization dedicated to the service of mankind. Denver Southeast Rotary Club is an active organization of men and women providing domestic and international assistance to others far and wide. And we have fun doing it with fellowship for our members and with a sense of ethics as outlined in the Four Way Test.
