We have a very special opportunity to have dinner with the Rotary International President this coming January. The President's Dinner is on January 6th in Denver starting at 5:30 at Denver Marriott South.
We will be having one or two Summit County Rotary tables at this event, and we are trying to coordinate who is planning on attending.  We are going to have at least one Summit County table, but we may have enough members attending to reserve two tables.
If you are planning on attending, please make sure to register online and let Diane know. The cost is $75 and you can register on the District website. Our club will reimburse 50% of the cost of this dinner for those who attend.

Satellite Meeting   


    Thanks to Benedicte Jeanson for coordinating our club's Satellite meetings and events for January.  She has announced the following schedule.   Our volunteer service event will be snow stomping for the Breckenridge International Snow Sculpture Competition on Tuesday, January 16th from 9 to noon. Sign up here: If this slot is filled, come anyway and we will take turns.  We'll follow that with a social event to see the results: Breckenridge International Snow Sculpture competition viewing Monday, January 22nd from 5 to 7 pm, possibly meeting for happy hour first (details to follow if that is happening).  Finally, the group will hold a more conventional meeting at the Pho Bay restaurant in Frisco on Monday, January 29th from 7 pm to 8:15 pm.
       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 or any of our Satellite members.
Easy way to pay your dues

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.



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