Community Service Chair Ronda Rasnick and her husband, fellow Rotarian Dennis Brovarone, stopped their busy lives long enough to accept the 2016-2017 Rotarians of the Year award from the Rotary Club of Littleton.  The award was presented by newly installed club President Belinda Bianchi.
Ronda and Dennis’s list of activities humble the busiest person among us, particularly because neither Ronda nor Dennis are retired. Read on to learn how these two remarkable individuals embody the Rotary motto of Service Above Self.
Ronda has owned and operated her own EDGAR filing agent business for 20 years, providing highly detailed business services, formatting and submitting Securities and Exchange Commission documents on behalf of publicly traded companies throughout the United States and in China.  She is an avid CrossFit trainer, hiker, climber and skier.
Like Rotary founder Paul Harris, Dennis is an attorney.  He is in fact a Senior Attorney at Hoban Law Group where he continues his 30-year legal practice in Colorado specializing in corporate finance, governance and securities law. He received his J.D. from the University of Denver College of Law and his B.A. in political science from the University of Colorado. And… they are the proud parents of three Millennials and live and thrive in the Littleton area.
Ask them about why they do so much and the answer is physical before they say anything. Dennis beams a megawatt smile and Ronda’s athletic frame relaxes into joy. It’s not hard to see that Dennis is drawn to the reading program at Centennial Elementary and is a passionate advocate to grow the program.  Ronda is in constant motion, organizing teams of volunteers to help organize medical supplies for Project C.U.R.E., arranging volunteer sign-ups to fill and deliver bags of food for the Arty’s Friday Food Bag program; or making sure there are singers and game players to visit the Libby Bortz Assisted Living facility on a Monday night to cheer the seniors waiting for them. And then there was the Flower Power rescue of live plants from the Home and Garden Show in February, making sure those plants found homes in five senior living communities.
