Five years since its debut, Rotary Club Central is getting a big upgrade
When we introduced Rotary Club Central in 2012, it revolutionized goal tracking and planning for clubs and districts — no more filling out paper club-planning forms or passing along boxes of historical club information every time a new leader took office. Rotary Club Central offered clubs and districts a quantifiable way to begin measuring local and global impact, specifically membership initiatives, service activities, and Rotary Foundation giving. But as with any technological advancement, in a few short years, Rotary Club Central began to show its age, and Rotarians took notice. They...
Rotary International Board adopts new zone structure
At its January 2017 meeting, the Rotary International Board of Directors adopted a new zone structure for Rotary clubs. Rotary bylaws require the Board to complete a comprehensive review of the 34 Rotary zones no less often than every eight years to ensure that each zone has an approximately equal number of Rotarians. The Board’s previous review of the zones occurred in 2008. The Board earlier approved the creation of three regional workgroups to develop rezoning proposals for Asia, Europe/Africa, and the Americas. These workgroups comprised one representative (either a current director,...
Centennial celebration honors 20 noteworthy global grant projects
Through The Rotary Foundation, Rotary members have supported thousands of projects that promote peace, fight disease, provide clean water, save mothers and children, support education, and grow local economies. We’ve also led the fight to eradicate polio worldwide. As part of our celebration of the Foundation’s centennial, we’re honoring 20 global grant projects with special recognition. Learn more about the projects using our interactive map.
Convention: Southern hospitality
The Atlanta Host Organization Committee is offering some good old-fashioned Southern hospitality at the Rotary International Convention from 10 to 14 June. It has planned a wide range of activities featuring everything from good food and music to inspiring tours of local landmarks. If it’s your first convention, these events are chances to meet fellow Rotarians from around the world, and if you’re an experienced convention goer, you can catch up with old friends. Hall of Fame baseball player Hank Aaron will host Rotarians for a “Strike Out Polio” night at the new SunTrust Park, where you’ll...
Member spotlight: The power of the press
When Teguest Yilma helped found the Rotary Club of Addis Ababa Entoto in 2002, she thought polio had already been eradicated from most of the world. But while Ethiopia had been free of the disease, Yilma was shocked to learn that new cases had started cropping up in surrounding countries such as Somalia. “I was thinking, it’s not possible, we can’t be free if the countries around us are not free,” she says. Yilma, the managing editor of Capital, Ethiopia’s largest English weekly newspaper, has brought a journalist’s skills to the fight against polio. She became vice chair of the Ethiopia...

Summit Rotary News
 

The Summit School District would love for Rotary members to join us at the SHS High School Homecoming game so we can express our thanks for all the support Rotary gives to our Summit students: 

The Summit School District Board of Education would like to say THANK YOU to our many community partners for supporting our schools and our students! We invite members of local organizations, businesses, and community volunteers - along with our staff, parents and families from all schools in the District - to join us Friday, October 20 at 6:00 pm at the Summit High School Homecoming game, and help us celebrate our strong community partnerships and strong Summit schools! Please be sure to wear your tiger pride green for FREE entry into the Homecoming game!

 

We are so fortunate that Rotary takes a strong interest in our students, and the support you provide is amazing! We recognize the evening may be chilly, but the welcome will be warm.  We hope you can join us.

Satellite Meeting   

 

Satellite members and guest gathered Sept 11 to enjoy an evening social event attending the North Face athletes' presentation at the Riverwalk Center in Breckenridge at 7 pm to hear and see the amazing solo climber Alex Honnold, as well as Emily Harrington, Clare Gallagher, and Cedar Wright. Many thanks to Jason Brewer for coordinating our satellite meetings and service work during the month of September. 

 

Mike Connolly is coordinating Satellite meetings and events for October, and he has announced that the first meeting will be next Monday evening, Oct 2nd, at the meeting room in the Baymont Hotel in Frisco, starting at 7pm.  We will have three outside speakers including one from the Denver area presenting their perspectives on an interesting topic, Protecting Our Environment. Members are encouraged to bring along friends who may be interested in the topic and/or in joining Summit Rotary.  More to follow from Mike on other October events. 

Please note also that there is also a special evening event on Tuesday, October 10 starting at 6:00 pm at the CMC facility in Breckenridge,  together with members of the Breckenridge Mountain Rotary Club and our Summit Rotary breakfast meeting members, featuring Mark McKinnon on "The Circus" - he spoke to the breakfast meeting last December and was a big hit, so no doubt this will be well worth attending.

 

Larry Stone is coordinating Satellite meetings and events for November.  We'll meet in his offices (Stone CPA, Unit F, 699 Summit Blvd in Frisco) at 7 pm on Monday, November 13.   Our social gathering for the month will begin at 7 pm on November 20 at Greco's Pasteria, 311 Main St in Frisco, including the Monday night football game Falcons vs Seahawks.  Members are encouraged to assist with the club's annual Thanksgiving Dinner on November 23 by contacting Wendy Myers "nmrocklover@comcast.net".     

 

    All Rotarians are welcome to these gatherings, and we hope that you'll invite your friends and colleagues to check us out as well!  No advance notice needed.  If you have questions or would like to present your passion as a program at one of our meetings, please contact Jim Brook at 970-409-8995 or at jimbrook22@gmail.com or any of our Satellite members.

Easy way to pay your dues
 
Earlier this fiscal year, the Summit County of Rotary Club setup the ability to accept credit card payments for payment of Rotary dues and option quarterly charitable donations.  We are now offering the ability to set up automated quarterly credit card payments.  The charges will be processed near the 10th of the month in January, April, July and October.   If you would like to enroll in this program.  Please complete an Authorization Agreement for Automated Credit Card payments.  The form is available at the Sergeant at Arms table at the Tuesday morning meetings or you can contact Mike Kurth at mike@summitbookkeeping.comto get the form.

Membership Committee News

We want to thank all of those sponsors who are identifying community leaders/business professionals and bringing them to our meetings.  Remember, a Prospective Member should attend 3 meetings before turning in his/her application, sponsor form, a short bio and $100 application fee to the Membership Director, Meg Boyer or any one on the Membership Committee.  The application will be presented to the Membership Committee for approval and then the Board of Directors.  Once approved, the applicant's bio will be posted in our bulletin for 3 weeks.  If there are no questions about the Prospective Member the induction will be scheduled.  

The primary sponsor will mentor the new member through the Red Badge process.  We encourage all members to interact with Prospective/New Members as much as possible.  One of the Red Badge requirements is to be a Greeter 3 times.  Because our club is growing and we are experiencing so many guests, greeters are very important.  You don't have to be a new member to be a greeter.  It is just one more way of participating in Club Service.

Membership Committee Members are: Meg Boyer, Julianne Gilchrist, Tom Marmins, Sandy Mortensen, Ann Clement, Susan Juergensmeier, Rolando Cuadrado, Dan Gibbs, Mike Connolly and Peggy Beeler.
