News and Stories
Featuring our fantastic member of the week, Andy Vick! 
 
Andy Vick is an experienced leader and arts administrator who believes in the power of the creative sector to drive economic development, build community, grow tourism, and enhance quality of life for everyone. 
 
Andy and his wife, Beth Piver, moved to Colorado Springs in 2014 from Western Maryland, where he was an active member and a Past President of the Rotary Club of Cumberland.  As the Executive Director of the Cultural Office of the Pikes Peak Region (COPPeR), Andy oversees the daily operation and financial management of the nonprofit, local arts agency that serves the City of Colorado Springs and the surrounding two-county region. 
 
In conjunction with his work at the Cultural Office, Andy has been appointed by the Governor of Colorado to serve as a Council member for Colorado Creative Industries (the State Arts Agency), and as a Board member for the Colorado Educational and Cultural Facilities Authority.  At the national level, he serves on the United States Urban Arts Federation (an advisory council for Americans for the Arts, composed of arts leaders from the 60 largest US cities).
 
Locally, Andy is an ex-officio Board member of the Colorado Springs Chamber & EDC, serves on the Colorado Springs Lodgers and Automobile Rental Tax (LART) Citizen Advisory Committee, and is a member of the Regional Leadership Forum and the Downtown Colorado Springs Rotary Club. In addition, Andy is a graduate of the 2016 Colorado Springs Leadership Institute program, the 2015 Leadership Pikes Peak Signature program, and the 2015 Colorado Creative Industries Change Leaders program. Andy is also an experienced public speaker on the topic of leveraging the arts as a tool for economic development and community vitality.
 
Thank you for all that you do to enrich our community in the arts!

From our Past Rotary District 5470 Governor, David Wood:
 
The first quarter polio reports from the two remaining countries not considered polio free continue to be cautiously optimistic. With just six cases of the wild polio virus reported in 2021 the trend was positive. Today that trend continues as we have had just one case of the wild polio virus in Afghanistan this year and 441 days since the last reported case of the wild polio virus in Pakistan.
 
The most encouraging information in the report is that there have been no Positive Environmental Samples since early December. Additionally, the cases of Circulating Vaccine - Derived Polio has dropped to just 34 compared with 195 at this time last year.
 
The eradication of only the second disease from the planet remains the primary goal of Rotary International.  The continued support of Rotarians will see this goal achieved. Please help Rotary International with your donation to The Rotary Foundation Polio Plus Fund. With your help we will have a polio free world.
 
And to those who have already been contributors, "Thank You!"
