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...
Member interview: Writer sheds light on FDR’s right-hand woman
Battling breast cancer in 2000, Kathryn Smith found comfort pursuing her lifelong interest in Franklin D. Roosevelt. The more she read, the more intrigued she became with the 32nd U.S. president’s private secretary, Marguerite Alice “Missy” LeHand. “I thought, what a fascinating life she had because she was by his side through the polio crisis, establishing the polio rehabilitation center in Warm Springs and then after his return to politics,” she says. Smith, a past president of the Rotary Club of Greater Anderson, S.C., and a longtime newspaper journalist, turned that curiosity into a book...
The Rotarian Conversation with Ban Ki-moon
One of United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon’s earliest memories is of fleeing with his family into the mountains during the Korean War, his village burning behind him. His father and grandfather had to forage for food in the woods; his mother gave birth to his siblings away from anything remotely resembling a health facility. “I have known hunger,” he says. “I have known war, and I have known what it means to be forced to flee conflict.” The soldiers who came to their rescue were flying the blue flag of the United Nations. The UN provided them with food and their schools with books....
Culture: Life in the bike lane
Like a lot of us, I spent much of my childhood riding bikes, but fell out of the habit for a while. Forty years. Then my wife and I moved to New York, where cyclists risk their necks in a daily Thunderdome of cabs, police cars, firetrucks, double-decker buses, messengers on motorbikes, and delivery trucks backing around corners at 20 miles an hour. Not for me! At least not until my 50th birthday, when my metabolic furnace flamed out. Calories started going directly from beer bottle to beer belly. It was time to start exercising. Either that or give up Samuel Adams, and I couldn’t do that to...

Satellite Meeting   

Our April 10 meeting included a program organized by Rotarian Susanne Ebling to include discussion of members' paths to Rotary and service to others. Several members participated in 9 Health Fair on April 8, and hopefully others will be able to spend a little time in support of the Four Way Test on April 27.  Erin Bastman will be organizing another assembly work party with Village Water Filters in the near future, and we're all set to host the concession at this summer's first "Concert in the Park" in Frisco, on Thursday, June 22.  Lots of opportunities!  Our next meeting on Monday, April 24 will be chaired/hosted by Rotarian Larry Stone.


New Location - Our Satellite meetings are held from 6:00-7:15 pm on the 2nd and 4th Mondays.   Thanks to the generosity of Rotarian Larry Stone, our meetings are now being held in the conference room in the offices of Stone CPA at 699 Summit Blvd Unit F in Frisco (east side of Hwy 9, about halfway between Walmart and Main St).  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 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.



When you do business with a Corporate Partner, thank them for being a Rotary Sponsor!
