Bill Sander's Presentation

 

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."

Rotary Peak

 
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.

Membership

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: co-chairs Meg Boyer and Mike Connolly, Julianne Gilchrist, Tom Marmins, Sandy Mortensen, Ann Clement, Susan Juergensmeier, Stephanie Katz, Carolyn Maessen and David "Woody" Woodland.

Rotary Ice melt Skit and Presentation, by Scott Price and Bill Sanders

 

 

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.

Ice Melt Sales have Begun!!!

 

Our 33rd annual Ice Melt Contest was kicked off with great fanfare at Tuesday’s Club meeting.  Every member present received their packet of 30 tickets.  Bill Sanders and Scott Price performed a skit promoting Ice Melt tickets as the “Fun and Unique Christmas gift”.  Bill purchased the first packet with a $100 check given to Catheryn Carlson. He will give the tickets to family and friends as Christmas gifts, who can mail in their stubs or deliver them to any Alpine Bank in Summit County.  Other Club members did the same thing at the meeting.  Scott said that idea removed his “gloom” about what gifts to give for Christmas and he would do that too.

 

The theme is for everyone to do their share to buy or sell their Ice Melt tickets. It’s our second biggest Club fundraiser, after the Car Raffle, for our community projects.

Rotarian Golf Activity

 
Rotary Golf is a Club Service project that can be a benefit to your club in many ways. The situation is that there are many Rotarians and other people in the community who like to play golf but just don’t have the time or organizational skills to create weekly golf outings for your club.
 
                Summit County Rotary Club has some ideas for you!
 
A Rotarian who is passionate about golf (The Golf leader) approaches a golf course in the area with the prospect of filling 3-6 foursome t-times on one day each week for the golf season. People can play golf every week or when they can. What we need from the Golf Course is a commitment to provide those tee times each week. Your leader then starts to assemble a master e-mail list of those interested. This is accomplished by making announcements at meetings and may include several Rotary clubs in the area. Assuming the golf day is Wednesday, the leader sends out an e-mail on Friday asking who is playing next Wednesday and the number of holes (9-18) and will they be walking or riding with the requirement to get back to him by Sunday evening. On Monday morning the leader then schedules those who signed up, filling in the foursomes as random or honoring requests for playing partners as required. Inviting your neighbors or friends to play is encouraged since you need to fill the t-times if possible and those folks may decide they like the Rotarians enough to check out a meeting, which should always be encouraged.
 
Each player pays for his/her own green fees or passes as required. A social time afterward can occur but with the players staggered it is usually an informal gathering.
 
That’s it. In our club, four golfers started the whole thing about 1995 and we have been doing it ever since. The leader has changed hands many times but usually a year commitment is required to keep the continuity.
 
This year the Summit Rotary Club golf leader is TOM FRENCH. If you have questions about how we do our golf group, please call Tom at 303-808-6717 or e-mail at td.french@comcast.net

Oktoberfest Volunteering!!!

 

 

 Thank you to everyone who has signed up to pour beer at Oktoberfest on September 8th.  I have attached the most recent sign-up sheet so you can confirm your commitment and see the open slots.

 

We are so close to filling the schedule for Oktoberfest, but we need one last push to get us where we need to be.  Please look it over and let Mike or me know if you and your family and friends can help with this extremely fun and lucrative project.  As you will see, we have spots at various times and tents.  Of special note is afternoon Breck Brewery tent #2 which is a six person tent and wide open.  This means you can take the whole tent and fill it with exactly your favorite people!

 

Again, thank you for all your help with this project. We look forward to hearing from you.

Satellite/Evening Meeting Discontinuance

 

Following extensive discussion during the April 10 meeting of the club's Board of Directors, it was decided that the current Satellite / Evening meeting will be discontinued due to very low levels of participation.  The eight members currently on the rolls as "Satellite" will be invited to continue in a new category of Active membership in our club, "Associate".  Under a limited grandfather provision, their quarterly dues will remain at $100 and will now include the cost of two breakfast meetings per quarter.  Those Associate members are encouraged to attend breakfast meetings in addition to those two (subject to payment of the meeting guest fee, currently $15), to participate in the club's monthly Happy Hour social gathering, and to participate in meetings and service projects of any of the club's committees. The club will endeavor to maintain strong communications with those members through the weekly ebulletin, other special communications, and personal contacts.   Any of those Associate members may permanently convert to full breakfast membership by notifying the club Secretary and/or Treasurer in writing.
