Join Us This Tuesday!!
This Tuesday, November 8th our program will include a Polio Update from Dr. Marny Eulberg, from the Rotary District Polio Committee.  We will also recognize and celebrate our Veterans that day.        
New Service Project:  A Blue Jeans Drive
Jim Britton announced our newest club project.  We are helping the organization, HOPE (Homeless Outreach Providing Encouragement) with a Blue Jeans Drive.  For the month of November, we are asking club members to gather up blue jeans from your closet, your partner's closet, neighbors, etc.  Jim said they need mens and womens new or slightly used jeans or canvas pants  Requested sizes are Mens (waist) 30- 36 and womens, 25 to 36.  Jim's sign concludes with  "Lets pile up those pants and fill these pockets with cash".   
Program:  The Reentry Initiative 

Deborah Simmons, co-founder of The Re-entry Initiative (TRI), introduced Emily Kleeman, the Executive Director of TRI, a program designed to provide support to formally incarcerated adults. 

Emily started her presentation with an experiential activity, inviting Rotary volunteers to line up against a wall and following their cue cards (violent history, no ID, no Medicaid, no family support, etc) would would take one step forward as Emily called out some specific attribute or limitation the individual is facing.  The outcome was very few (actually only one), made it across the room.  The exercise emphasized the many challenges recently incarcerated individuals have once back in society.  These hurdles can ultimately lead to re-incarceration.  The vision of TRI is to offer formally incarcerated adults an opportunity to thrive in the community without reoffending. Their slogan, From Surviving to Thriving is manifested through the comprehensive services inside and outside prison walls that empower adults.   The Reentry Initiative is a 501(c)(3) organization, registered in the state of Colorado. TRI has served over 300 men and woman.  

The current recidivism rate in Colorado is 50% and if you calculate the cost of reincarceration, compared to providing added supportive services to prevent reoffending, it’s a no brainer!  Emily indicated that anyone on parole (reporting to a parole officer in Boulder County) or discharged from facility in the last year and a resident of Boulder County (or surrounding area), is eligible to apply. The Re-entry Initiative is located at  402 Kimbark Street in Longmont, CO.  TRI offices are on 2nd floor of Central Presbyterian Church. 

Little Pantry Service Project
We have not yet completed our obligations to this project.  We did a food drive during October and during November we are responsible for stocking the pantry on a weekly basis.  We didn't collect enough food during October, so we still need your help during November to assure adequate supply.  Click this LINK to review the possible items. The Little Pantry is open to everyone in the community and offers a new way for neighbors to care for neighbors.    
What Happened at the Meeting?
  President Wein-always offers her smile and laughter.  Welcome back Janet Day, already at work helping Sue with Fishbowl.   
Bryan Baum, during his Moment of Inspiration, reminded us about being thankful. He challenged us to find something/someone that we are thankful for and thank them. He closed with, "Thank you Longmont Rotary"..

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!
