Orders are now being taken for the 2020 Peach sale! The peaches are coming from Georgia this year as the Palisade crop was destroyed by a Spring frost. These are baseball-sized, freestone, and are mouth-watering delicious! The cost is $30 for a 12-pound box.
 
Delivery is currently set for Saturday, July 25 from 10:00 am to 3:00 pm in the parking lot at Ace Hardware, 1727 Main Street. Please use this link to order today! https://www.signupgenius.com/go/20F054DA5A92FA6F58-peach
The Micah Home landscaping project was completed on June 12th and 13th.  A big thank you to the Longmont Rotary team and the staff at the Inn Between. Micah Homes provides permanent, supportive apartment units for six low-income elderly or disabled individuals.  
The first ever Virtual Rotary International Convention was held on June 20th-26th.  
The sessions have been recorded for later viewing.  Additionally, there are sessions scheduled to launch in July.  Check this link for more details.    
Our Polio campaign continues through May and early June. Our club goal is to provide 2,000 doses, at $3.00/dose, raising $6,000 for Polio.  At present, our club has raised over $4,000. Additionally, we have a club member who has offered a challenge to us. If we meet our club goal of $6,000, that club member will match up to $2000. That would put us at $8,000 and with the 2:1 match from the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, we would raise $24,000. Quite Impressive Indeed!
You can make your donation in several ways:  1) Write a check, payable to Rotary International Foundation and send to Bob Parsons at P.O. Box 272, Longmont, CO. 80502.  2) You can also drop off your check at ACE Hardware, attention: DAN GUST. 3) Make your payment to Rotary International by following this link. 
Don't  forget your donation is matched 2:1 from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.  So, if you donate $100.00, your gift becomes $300.00.  The pandemic has not changed our commitment to the eradication of polio.   
 
 
Shelter Box started as a Rotary club project and today serves the world in providing emergency shelter that comes in a box! Shelter Box is a global organization made up of people who believe in shelter as a human right – that shelter from the chaos of disaster and conflict is vital.  When people are plunged into crisis, normality is suspended. But good, quality shelter can cut through the chaos. This is why we provide tools that enable people to rebuild homes and transform their lives.  One major objective of Shelter Box is to keep the family together, providing temporary housing until the family and/or  community can rebuild.  Most recently, with the COVID-19 crisis, Shelter Box has distributed aid to help support social distancing in Syria.
 

 

Our Young Rotarians continue to meet every other week via a Zoom call.  The silent auction will be postponed, a fundraising event to benefit the Philippines Project, providing food and school supplies to children in that area.  
The Rotary District 5450 Annual Conference is scheduled for Saturday, August 29th and will be a Virtual on-line event.  It’s a great chance to learn from other district clubs and share ideas.    

Good afternoon, fellow Rotarians, 
These are interesting times, to say the least. We have entered uncharted territory, and a place that reduces our comfort zone. However, in the words of District Governor, Curt Harris, "But we, as Rotarians, with our motto of Service Above Self, are great at seeing the bigger picture and helping make our communities, and the world, a better and safer place."
The First Lutheran Church is now potentially closed through the end of August, thus we will likely continue virtual meetings, but the decision will rest upon the shoulders of our incoming President, Dave Ferro.  
The health and welfare of our club members is the primary consideration during these difficult times. If there is something we can do to help you, please let Diane Stow and the Family of Rotary committee know. Diane can be reached via email at diane@dianestow.com.
 
Stay safe and healthy!
