Welcome to Our Club, Proud Member of District 5450
Service Above Self
Summit County Community & Senior Center
PO Box 415
Frisco, CO 80443
Our meeting on February 13 included a presentation from the Ted Talks series that challenged us to let go of excuses, assumptions and fears, and accept the awesome responsibility of being the creators of our own reality.
Our next meeting on Monday, February 27 will feature a program on the latest Guatemala Literacy Project trip, presented by Mary Anne Johnston. She is a past president of our club and has inspired our major participation in the GLP and several local literacy projects.
Satellite members have recently donated sufficient funds to sponsor a high school scholarship for a Guatemalan student, and while we have Mary Anne with us at this meeting, we'll review current applications and select "our" student for that scholarship award.
Our Satellite meetings are held from 6:00-7:15 pm on the 2nd and 4th Mondays of every month in a private room in the Backcountry Brewery, corner of Main St. and Hwy 9/Summit Blvd in Frisco. All Rotarians are welcome, 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 email@example.com or any of our Satellite members.
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, STEPHANIE KATZ 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: Stephanie Katz, Julianne Gilchrist, Tom Marmins, Sandy Mortensen, Ann Clement, Susan Juergensmeier, Rolando Cuadrado, Dan Gibbs, Mike Connolly and Peggy Beeler.
