Thank you Brett Allison and Meg Tully for greeting our members and guests at Tuesday’s lunch meeting.   Our 59 members in attendance this week enjoyed the company of three visiting Rotarians, one exchange student, two of our interact students, seven guests, fourteen grant recipients and “as Holly reported” four LIVE LADY LOBSTERS!  That is a full house.  Thank you all for welcoming guests to our lunch.

 

Geneva Taylor provided us with the Thought for the Day.  Thank you Geneva for testing us on our seven forms of currency now in circulation - $1 through the $100 bills, not only the front, but the back of each bill.  We had a few smart ones in the crowd, but many of us failed miserably…

 

As Rotarians we seek to be inclusive of members with diverse backgrounds and it starts at the Club level.  One of the many reasons our Club is strong, interesting and continues to be of value is that we have membership with a variety of religious and political beliefs.  For this reason, we ask that when addressing Club members, whether from the podium or around the table, religious and political opinions be kept out of the conversation, just a reminder.

 

During the Steamboat Minute, Tara Weaver shared her responsibilities with us at Central Park Management and made even a bigger announcement, (just in case you didn’t know) that she and her husband Ben are expecting their second child!

 

Interact students, Lily and Molly, were in attendance to sell Red Ball tickets, a fundraiser put on by the morning Rotary Club.  When the Interact students sell tickets, they are able to retain 50% of the ticket price for their own fundraisers, so if you haven’t purchased your tickets yet, get them soon.  If you need a contact, please give Ashley or myself a call and we will put you in touch with a student.

 

Scholarship applications are being accepted up until the end of March and Tiffany reported a low number of applications have been received so far.  If you know of a graduating senior, please let them know about the scholarships that we award.

 

Alice passed around a sign-up sheet for Thought for the Day and reminded all of the newer members that it is one of the things on your new member checklist so don’t hesitate to sign up. 

 

Four LIVE LADY LOBSTERS then rocked into our meeting to tell us about the newest event coming to our Club.  Save the date, Saturday, August 10th, because you will not want to miss this.  The Steamboat Springs Lobsterfest will feature a live lobster dinner, open bar, live music and dancing.  The primary beneficiary this year will be the North Routt Charter School for a soccer field in honor of Sancy Shaw.  Proceeds will also benefit the local charities of the Steamboat Springs Rotary Club.  More details to come but sponsorships are now available. 

 

Tara Weaver, Chair of the Grant Committee, then presented the recipients of the first round of grants, awarded in December.  It was an interesting and rewarding program to hear how the recipients have put their money to work, helping improve our community.  We heard from the following organizations:  REPS, Council on Aging, Sustainability Council, Steamboat Tennis Association, NW Colorado Health, Partners in Routt County, Strings Music Festival, North Routt Pre-school, Book Trails and Stars.  I apologize if I missed anyone.

 

Finally, the team of Lobsters assisted us with Good News and fun was had by all.

 

Next week we will be at The Grand and will hear from Kent Vertrees “It’s all about the Yampa River”.   

 

Have a great weekend,

Carol Johnson
