Gratitude in the Face of COVID-19
   
Cindy Noble and Rita Liu presented their thoughts on the expressions of gratitude experienced by Longmont United Hospital and Longs Peak Hospital in the face of COVID-19. Gratitude is the quality of being thankful, and the readiness to show appreciation and express kindness. Both hospitals received overwhelming support from the community throughout the pandemic. As Executive Director for the Longmont United Hospital Foundation, Cindy started a blog to update visitors on ways that the community helped out during the pandemic.
 
 
Rita Liu, a Board Member for the Longs Peak Hospital Foundation, spoke about efforts of the Foundation to raise funds to support innovative research and education. Donations allow Longs Peak to bridge gaps in services and help thankful patients and families express gratitude to the hospital staff.
 
Basia Christ, a local artist, created paintings for both Longmont United and Longs Peak Hospitals, expressing her gratitude for the care she received. Longmont was fortunate to experience four flyovers of the community, that were emotional moments for the entire staff of both hospitals. Benjamin, a 12-year old student, created ear guards for hospital personnel, using a 3D printer.
 
Anheuser-Busch donated sparkling water and coffee drinks. Little Caesars donated 1 million pizzas nationwide in April and May to hospital workers and first responders. Local restaurants chipped in by allowing consumers to purchase meals for hospital workers.
 
Care packages were created for hospital and nursing home workers. Meals on Wheels donated 150 pounds of See's Candies, who experienced  loss of sales for Easter and Mother's Day, relative to COVID. The little things made a difference, every day!

Message from our Club President 


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
