Vocational Talk: Gene Schiferl
Gene Schiferil delivered his Rotary Vocational Talk, sharing key highlights and foundational elements that influenced his life. With a remarkable background as a Fixed Wing Pilot during the Vietnam War, Gene relocated to Colorado in 1975 while continuing to pursue his passion for aviation through a successful career in commercial airlines. Actively involved in the community, he helped with the 4-H organization (specifically the Hygiene Hustlers) and served as the president of the Kiwanis Club on two occasions. Gene's unwavering commitment to his military service and fellow veterans is evident through his presentation of over 700 military pins to Vietnam era veterans. Currently, Gene and his wife Anne reside in Longmont.  
Botswana: Longmont Rotary International Grant in Khwai Village, Botswana 
Andy Lee, the Grants Chairperson, announced the approval of an International Grant project. This Rotary-supported project involves the development of a teaching garden in Khwai Village, located on the banks of the Khwai River in northern Botswana. The village, which is home to 400 people, has a pre-school/elementary school and a secondary school. The garden area would be equipped with appropriate water resources for crop irrigation. Currently, there is no effort to grow crops in the village, leading to a decline in knowledge and self-sufficiency. All vegetables are transported by truck and sold at the village store. Various factors have influenced the village's discontinuation of active gardening, but it is believed that with the proper infrastructure, it could be possible to revive it. The village leaders are concerned about the lack of nutrition and healthy choices for the community and believe that this program will have a positive impact on the health and well-being of Khwai Village. A big thanks to Andy for championing this project, completing the grant, and collaborating with the necessary Rotary partners and local connections.
Program:  Club Visioning Goals

Co-Presidents-Elect, Tim Waters and Rose Crispin, provided a club presentation outlining the three-year goals developed by the Visioning Team, which commenced its work in February of this year.  Following the presentation of the goals,  club members engaged in small group discussions covering various areas, including Club Size, Awards, Fundraising, Community Service Projects, Marketing and Public Image, International Projects, Club Operations, Youth Services, and Foundation Giving. The Visioning Team continues to meet weekly, collaborating on goals they consider both feasible and crucial for our club's future success and impact.

Tim emphasized that achieving these goals requires the commitment and dedication of all club members.  The Visioning Team is available for questions. The team members are: Tim Waters, Rose Crispin, George Tamm, Andy Lee, Curtis Elliott, Julia Bruce, Karen Hicks, Brian Laartz, Janet Day, and Debbie Setlock.  A complete list of goals will be sent to all club members.

Welcome to Longmont Rotary!
Since 1919, Longmont Rotary has served this community through service projects such as winter coat drives, bell-ringing for the Salvation Army, etc.

“Rotary is a global network of 1.4 million neighbors, friends, leaders, and problem-solvers who see a world where people unite and take action to create lasting change – across the globe, in our communities, and in ourselves.”
Our club, community, nation, and world need each one of us more than ever. I invite you to be a guest of our club by attending one of our meetings, enjoying our fellowship, and finding out how we can make our community, nation, and the world a better place.

Together, we will make a difference!
