District 5470
News and Stories
On February 11, 2021 The Colorado Springs Gazette eEdition posted this photo of Fannie Mae Duncan.  She is holding the plaque presented to her at the dedication of the home she donated to BethHaven in 1995.  The property at 615 N. Corona Street was also a "hands on" Rotary project when Bob Elliott inspired a group of Rotarians to help in the renovation.  Our Rotary Service Fund made many contributions to this effort. 
Later that year, this project was named the "Outstanding Hands On Project" in District 5470.  As a follow-up to the Beth Haven project, Fannie Mae Duncan was inducted as an Honorary Member of the Rotary Club of Colorado Springs until her death in 2005 at the age of 87.
This photograph comes from the Pikes Peak Library District’s African Americans in Colorado Springs collection, and the photographer is unknown. (We checked with Lynn Boutte and it is not his photo.)

Planet Walk Colorado Springs submitted space-themed, student artwork to the Commonwheel Artist Coop juried art show called Space “an exploration of out of this world art”.  The Commonwheel, located in Manitou Springs will display and sell this art as part of its current gallery event.  With the help of Academy Art & Frame who donated all of the beautiful, professional framing, Planet Walk worked with its partners, the Cultural Office of the Pikes Peak Region (COPPeR) and the Rotary Club of Colorado Springs to submit these amazing works of art.
These artistic works were originally part of the Space Art contest and free solar system tour.  The contest was held this past October as part of the annual Planet Walk event in America the Beautiful Park during Arts Month. 
The student artists ranged in age from 10 to 17 and represented schools from Fountain to Monument.  The student artists hail from: Howbert Elementary, Lewis Palmer Middle School, The da Vinci Academy, Taylor Elementary, Lewis Palmer High School, and Fountain Fort Carson High School in addition to one student who is home schooled.  
Planet Walk’s Artistic director, Elli Collette was impressed with the quality of the art submitted by the students.  “The amount of talent and dedication shown in these works gives me great optimism for the future of art and the creative process”
If you would like to view these youthful interpretations of space along with work by many other artists, simply visit the Commonwheel Artist Co-op at 101 Canon Avenue in Manitou Springs.

Hello, Rotarians

I had an epiphany earlier this week. I think it's worth sharing because I can't be the only person to have this revelation. Or maybe someone else needs to hear this perspective.
