Excerpts from Bill Sander's presentation:

 

"In my opinion from visiting many other clubs in my 25 years in Rotary, Summit County Rotary is a World Class Club because of your involvement in so many projects that benefit our community."

 

"Each of you are  philanthropist’s in your own way by giving your time, talent and treasure to our community through Rotary."

 

"A quote that I heard from Cindy Bargell, attributed to Maya Angelou,  “ I have found that among its other benefits, giving liberates the soul of the giver.”"

 

"You are all givers. You are the ones honored today. Thank you for being a philanthropist."

Rotarians recently partnered with Friends of The Dillon Ranger District (FDRD) to restore the damaged fencing at the top of Loveland Pass. This heavily trafficked and popular tourist spot is remarkable for its scenic beauty. It's also popular as the trail head for the West Ridge Trail leading to the summit of the 12, 479’ mountain locally know as Rotary Peak. The old fencing helped to keep visitors on the established paths and off sensitive terrain, but had deteriorated to such a degree that Rotarians determined something needed to be done. It was an embarrassment to have visitors from around the world see the broken-down condition of the approach to one of our state's significant scenic wonders – the Continental Divide at 11,990'.
 
Joining with the FDRD, members of the Summit County and Littleton Rotary clubs worked together in restoring all the damaged buck-and-rail sections, and adding several new sections. Materials were secured and the project was directed by the FDRD Project Manager Doozie Martin. Public service trail maps and guides produced by Rotary Club donations here happily received by visitors and hikers. Those who successfully made the 1.5 mile hike to Rotary Peak were presented with a commemorative “I Climbed Rotary Peak” pin as evidence of their accomplishment.
 
Rotary once again proves that it has the means and ability to work together addressing needs at home and around the world. Future projects on the trails at Loveland Pass and on Rotary Peak are in the process of being evaluated.

Bill: Hey Scott, you’re smiling, what’s that all about ?

Scott: Well, the Ice Melt contest is over and I understand it was successful.

 

B: Yes, it’s over and it was successful. * Ice Melt Committee recognized here.(Diane Monaghan, Scott Price, Stu Dearnley, Lee Edwards, Steve Cornwell, Catheryn Carlson, Kevin Boylan, Susan Juergensmeier, Lori Burke, Ann Clement, Dave Mathews, Bee Jeanson

 

S: Did everyone do their share as the Club had asked ?

 

B: Absolutely, every member did their share and 20 members did more than their share, including Jerry Devine, Bob Lau, Emily Messegee, Larry Stone, Woody Woodland, Rich James, Butch Elich, Mike Spry, who did much more than their share.

 

S: What do you mean every member did their share ?

B: The Club asked every member to sell or purchase at least one packet, and every member did that. * ( ask every member to stand and shake hands with member on their left and right and realize that every member did their share and sold or purchased a packet of tickets---that we had !00% participation. What a fantastic accomplishment !

 

S: That’s great, so what was the financial result ?

B: The gross income was $22K, the expenses were $8K ( including the cash prizes to the winners, for a net revenue of $14K

 

S: That’s fantastic: $14K , that’s about double what the Ice Melt contest has produced in the past.

B: Yes, but, the money is only part of it. The other part is how the money used--- for the 31 plus projects that we ( our Rotary Club) ( Your Rotary Club) support, that benefit our community.

 

Projects  in Health, Hunger and Education, like Reading Buddies, RYLA, Community Dinner, Community Care Clinic, Coats for Kids, CASA, to name just a few.

 

The Rotary motto is “ Service Above Self”. Joni Ellis, when she was Club president created a Club motto, “ We Make Good Things Happen For Our Community”.

 

Each one of you should feel good, should feel  proud that you are a Rotarian, ---that you are a member of this Summit County World Class Club,---and by the simple act of selling Ice Melt tickets,  YOU, each one of YOU  make good things happen for our community.
