Dale Sherrod and Wein Pin-Yeh hosted the the annual talent show for Longmont Rotary. Don Owen played "Amazing Grace" on the saw and "Standing on the Promises" on the harmonica. Phil Crews played the guitar and sang "What Do You Do After Christmas". Dale Sherrod played "Smoke Gets In Your Eyes" on the piano and the Silver Creek Fiddlers played an Irish Folk song. Thanks to all of our dedicated entertainers and to Dale and Wein for all of their work on coordinating this program!
Katharine Reece is the Donor Relations Manager for the I Have a Dream Foundation of Boulder County. The organization is working to close the opportunity gap in education in Boulder County. "I Have a Dream" was founded in 1981 by Eugene Lang in Harlem, New York. Today, there are 22 affiliates in the U.S. and Boulder County is the largest affiliate.
 
The organization works to improve the graduation rate in Boulder County and believes that the entire community is responsible for student success. A recent survey showed that Boulder County is least open to minorities, immigrants and refugees. As a result, many people of color feel excluded from our community.
 
I Have a Dream seeks to identify affected students and create resources to close the gap. The organization provides social and emotional support to "dreamers" and up to $10,000 in post-secondary tuition education assistance to each dreamer. Fifty to sixty students in a grade school or housing site form a "cohort" and opt in for 12+ years of support. I Have a Dream forms partnerships with school districts and housing partners.
 
Family partnerships include home visits, support with parent-teacher conferences, mentoring and support navigating the educational system. Additionally, post-secondary and career support are offered, along with scholarships.
 
I Have a Dream of Boulder County employs 32 full-time and part-time staff, 30 Notre Dame Americorps members and 700 volunteers. For more information, contact Katharine at katharine.reece@ihaveadreamboulder.org.
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.  


Hello Everyone,

 

The Rotary theme for 2020-21 is Rotary Opens Opportunities.. A key goal for the upcoming Rotary year will be how do we maintain and continue all that the club has built over the last 100+ years?  What do we need to do to maintain the club as a cohesive unit?  How do we continue to support our community through local grants and projects?  How do we continue to support Rotary International, the Foundation, and Polio plus?  Also, how do we prepare for the day when programs like RYLA are able to resume?  

 

A friend of mine is a multiple time cancer survivor.  He always says that tough times mean that better ones are in the future.  With that in mind, my focus will be on how we maintain what we have today, and how we prepare to transition to the other side of our current paradigm.  Longmont Rotary has a great tradition and a great group of people.  Like everything else these days, things will be a little more difficult than usual, but we can and will succeed.

 

Thanks

Dave
