Brew n' Que was a real success with our club members selling beer and Margaritas. Club members spent a Saturday afternoon raising funds for our foundation.
The 16th annual State Of Our City was held on May 12 at the Wings Over The Rockies hangar at Centennial Airport. Hosted by our club with President Trip Butler at the helm, Centennial Mayor Stephanie Piko updated the audience with the latest developments in the city. With sold out attendance of over 300 guests on a rather blustery spring day, this event marked the first time in three years that we have been able to host this event due to the pandemic.
 
 
 
 
 
The mission of the Imagination Library of Colorado is to increase literacy by ensuring all young children in our area may participate in Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library.
Our goal is to provide sponsorship of over 500 children for a one year subscription to receive a new book every month to read in Centennial. It takes $25 to support each child per year. Will you please help us?
 
Viktoria Tuckova is from the Czech Republic and is spending a full school year at Arapahoe High School.  A straight-A student, Viki’s best subjects are math because according to her, “I’m pretty good at it,” and learning new languages and their origins.  In addition to speaking Czech, she also speaks Slovak, French and English and has taken Spanish (but it just confused her French). She is also taking Latin for the challenge of it.
 
She is considering going to medical school after graduation but is still keeping her options open.  One of her favorite things about being in Colorado has been the people and the school,. It is very different from her experiences in the Czech Republic and she really enjoys how open everyone is and has developed many amazing relationships.
 
Viktoria Tuckova, Rotary Club of Centennial’s Student of the Quarter for Fourth Quarter, March-April 2022.
Giovanni Rebecchi is from Modena, Italy and is spending a full school year at Arapahoe High School. An exceptional student, Gio attends a language school at home where he studies both Latin and Greek and hopes to attend Law school, following in his father’s footsteps. At Arapahoe HS, Gio has pushed himself in the classroom and directly asked to take the most challenging classes he can, including Calculus and AP English Literature. Gio has an adventurous spirit and has chosen to make the most of his time in the United States. He has volunteered his time as a mentor for special needs students in the unified basketball program, and he plans on to joining the track team this spring.
 
We are sure you have heard about the disastrous fires that burned in Boulder County. At least 580 homes have been lost in the Superior, Louisville, Marshall, and Lafayette areas. Thousands of people have been displaced; many have lost everything. The fires were very fast burning, growing to a 6,200 acre burn area in this densely populated area. The record high winds fueled the flames. 
 
Donations can be made online(3% of each donation will deducted for handling fees.)For larger amounts, please consider sending a check made payable to:
Rotary District 5450
Subject Line: Boulder County Fires
5103 Dvorak Circle
Frederick, CO 80504
 
On behalf of the District’s Natural Disaster Response Committee, please consider a donation that will be used to help rebuild lives in our own backyard in the Denver/Boulder Area. At this time the targets for these donations have not been determined as the District is not a first responder and as immediate needs are being met. More information about how your donations will be utilized will be provided in the days and weeks to come.  We are working in concert with Boulder Rotarians and many others in the surrounding area to determine the best use of the funds.
 
Thanks everyone for joining us in this time of need for our neighbors and friends.
