My name is Alexa Nofsinger. I recently graduated from Western State Colorado University with a double Bachelors degree in Business and Psychology. I am getting my graduate certification in Multi Media Journalism and then want to get my Masters in marketing and eventually work for a travel/adventure magazine. In my free time I love to explore the mountains with my dog either by foot or by jeep, practice photography, spend time at the gym, and write on my blog.

 

I've been to 13 countries in the last five years. I travel because I am curious to see what kinds of landscapes, cultures, foods, and people are all over the world. My last trip was to Peru with a Utah based company called CHOICE. I chose to venture with CHOICE not only because it gave me an opportunity to experience another beautiful country, but also because I wanted my next trip after studying abroad to be for someone else and not for myself.

Abbas Rajabi, an American by choice, grew up in Hamadan, Iran in a large family. His passion for education brought him to the United States where he pursued a degree in Mechanical Engineering at the University of Texas in Arlington. After working at several large companies, Abbas decided that his entrepreneurial spirit was too strong to deny. He began several small businesses in Texas, South Carolina and then Colorado while also building a family. Most recently, he is the founder and president of Mohegan Capital, a private real estate investment fund specializing in value-add and income producing industrial real estate.

Abbas is a very proud Denver Southeast Rotarian; he believes Rotary is the most prestigious Service, Philanthropic and Networking organization ever. Abbas has a great passion for service. As tragedies erupted around the world, he channeled the power of his Rotary family to help those in need. His passion for education inspired him to create “Pencils for Peace” - a program that gave school supplies to Afghan children. Abbas along with his Rotary friends were involved in remodeling numerous orphanages in Mexico as well as the coordination and execution of a trip to Thailand to help victims of the 2004 Tsunami. After the 9/11 attacks in 2001, Abbas arranged a fundraiser to benefit the brave NYFD firefighters and took a check to the New York City Rotary club. At the height of the housing crisis in the United States, Abbas coordinated the efforts of Rotarians and volunteers to help families in Denver’s east Colfax area motels buy much needed food and gifts during the holiday season. When Hurricane Katrina, Hurricane Sandy and the tornados in Joplin, Missouri happened, Abbas was quick to organize his club and the Rotary District  to help those in need. Most recently Abbas served on the District’s Flood Relief Committee, fundraising for victims of the 2013 Boulder flood. In 2002-2003 he was named District 5450’s Rotarian of the Year, and remains a committed Rotarian after more than 25 years.

Abbas is married to Sami Rajabi who he met in Iran while in high school. Their first big adventure together was when Sami joined Abbas in the United States over 44 years ago. She is involved in their businesses, and uses her financial acumen and passion to help ensure a successful family business.

Sami and Abbas are proud of their four very accomplished children; a journalist and mother, a lawyer and volunteer firefighter, a physician at Harvard, and a post-doctoral fellow at U of Penn Annenberg School.  All of the Rajabi's children are also Paul Harris Fellows. They have two grandchildren who bring them great joy. Aside from time with family, Abbas and Sami love spending what time they may have dreaming about  traveling, reading, boating, watching films, grilling on the back deck and hosting their friends for fun, food, and fellowship!

Devin Patrick Hughes is highly regarded for his exhilarating score interpretations, advocacy for music accessibility, innate passion, and spiritual curiosity. He is concurrently serving as Music Director and Conductor of the Arapahoe Philharmonic and the Boulder Symphony, and has established himself as a musical leader in the region through previous positions with the Santa Fe Youth Symphony Association, Denver Young Artists Orchestra, Denver Philharmonic Orchestra, and Denver Contemporary Chamber Players.

Devin was recently selected from among hundreds of conductors around the world to compete in the 2017 Solti International Conducting Competition in Budapest and Pécs, Hungary. In 2010, he was the only American selected with eleven other conductors worldwide to compete in the Toscanini International Conducting Competition in Parma, Italy (Verdi country). He was a conducting fellow at the American Academy of Conducting at Aspen and has conducted orchestras across North America and Europe including the Winnipeg Symphony, Colorado Symphony, Rochester Philharmonic, Green Bay Symphony and Filarmonica Arturo Toscanini.

Under his baton, the Arapahoe Philharmonic and Boulder Symphony have reached new artistic heights and become hubs for community outreach and education initiatives, major collaborations, operatic performances, and premieres of exciting new music. Dedicated to highlighting local composers and exploring the interplay of music, theatre, art, and dance, Devin also commissioned and performed multiple musical responses to exhibitions in the Museum of Contemporary Art during Denver Arts Week.

Always one of the most enjoyable and informative programs Littleton Rotary has, Classification Talks are short, ten minute talks by newer members that tell their stories. In this case, two newer members, and one "experienced" member, Past President Mark Swanson. From where they grew up, to their education, careers, families, interests and more, club members learn much about their newest friends and fellow Rotarians. All club members are encouraged to attend and make welcome these great additions to our Rotary Family.
