Congratulations Longmont Rotary !!
Dan Gust reported that we have now raised over $30,000 for Ukraine Disaster Relief.  Rotary’s motto of Service Above Self  isn't just words. It’s how Rotary members take care of each other, and their communities.  Our long standing relationship was fostered through the One World study groups, comprised of Ukrainian Rotary club members who came to Longmont to learn about medicine, government, media and education. Due to this long-standing, close relationship, it has been particularly difficult to watch the destruction of their country and the murder of its citizens.
To support our friends, The Rotary clubs of Longmont (Longmont Rotary and Twin Peaks Rotary and the Young Rotarians), have raised over $30,000 to help with the refugee crisis in Ukraine and bordering countries. The money is directed through the Disaster Fund of The Rotary Foundation.  If you would like to donate, Click Here

Check Presentation to Born to Read

Charlotte Tyson, Charity Fund President, presented a check totaling $1,000.  to Born to Read.  Dede Alspaugh and  Marian Parsons thanked the club for this generous donation, reporting that they now serve both Longmont hospitals.  All new parents receive a book bag with two books along with literacy information.  


Program:  Imagine!

Imagine! was established in 1963 as the first community-centered board in Colorado. Today Imagine! provides services to over 4,300 people with developmental, cognitive and physical challenges, with the aim to build these individuals into the fabric of their communities.

Today’s program focused on the use of technology to aid in job skills training.  Joey Long demonstrated how he learned to bus tables at a restaurant through the use of Virtual Reality. Tyler Little and Meagan Wittle explained this technology, which creates an artificial environment that a person can inhabit. Through the aid of the goggles, a person can see a full 360 view of their work space with all its features.  This project started at Left Hand Brewing in Longmont and The Sink in Boulder.  After mapping the interior spaces, the framework was created to build in the work task details.  Imagine clients could then practice their needed job skills in a safe, errorless learning environment.

After the program Rotarians had the opportunity to test out the goggles and try their hand at clearing a table.  They did "okay".  Maybe more practice is needed.
Thanks Dale

President's Message

Hello All,

Thank you for granting me the opportunity to serve as the president of the Rotary club of Longmont for the 2021–2022 Rotary year.

The upcoming year will be one of continuing change as we start the process of returning to the “new normal“ of in-person meetings. The process is going to be a "crawl, walk, run" and I hope everyone will be patient. 
The theme of this rotary year is "Serve to change lives".  It will be wonderful to be able to come up with projects to follow this theme and continue to serve our community locally nationally and internationally.
While we will not be able to have in person RYLA again this year, there will be a one day virtual session. With school being in person, I am looking forward to the Young Rotarian‘s being able to start up again in the fall. Our youth are the future of rotary!
My goal this year is to grow our club by a few members and for everyone to think of younger people in the community who would make great Rotarians.
I look forward to a terrific year.
Yours in Rotary,
Debby Paris
Rotary Club of Longmont
