We are excited to announce our 2019/2020 exchange student from Brazil, Matheus Cofferri!
 
 
Matheus hails from Curitiba, a city in the southern part of Brazil near the coast. Though he lives in a big city now, he grew up in a much more rural setting where his father works for a dairy products company, which means he'll be right at home here in Fort Morgan.
 
Though you may not visit Brazil in your lifetime, the next best thing is to have someone from Brazil live in your home! You can be a host family to Matheus and share your culture and traditions with him while he shares the culture and traditions of Brazil with you! If you'd like more information about hosting an exchange student, please visit http://www.rmrye.org or send us an email at webmaster@fortmorganrotaryclub.org.

The Rotary Clubs of Fort Morgan and Brush recently got together at Morgan Lanes for some fun lunch time bowling, pizza, and Christmas singing provided by students from the Fort Morgan High School. Though there were lots of strikes and spares, no turkeys were to be seen.
 
The Rotary Club of Fort Morgan’s 7th Annual Chili/Soup Cook Off enjoyed warm temperatures, warm bowls, and warm hearts from all of the community support this past Saturday.
 
 
An appreciative crowd of official taste testers donated $5 each to be able to sample the varieties of chili and soup available. Christine Yung’s cocoa-infused chili was the official judged winner and the people’s choice winners were Cody Millar and Neil White for best chili and Robin Northrup for best soup. The public also enjoyed John and Jaton Edge's Chili Verde with pork.
 
The Fort Morgan Rotary Club recently had the wonderful opportunity to hear back from the students it sponsored to attend this summer's RYLA leadership camp. This year, due to the generosity of community members and businesses who supported our fund raising efforts, we were able to send 5 local youth to participate in the fun activities and receive training.
 
"RYLA (Rotary Youth Leadership Awards) is a life-changing leadership training program for young men and women where leadership skills and principles are learned, developed and enhanced in an atmosphere of trust and respect. The purpose of RYLA is to encourage and assist current and potential youth leaders in methods of responsible and effective leadership. Many past RYLArians have said, "It was the best week of my life!" "
 
 
The Fort Morgan Rotary Club's 2018 7th Annual Chili/Soup Cook-Off is almost here!
 
Join us Saturday, December 8th, from 11am to 1pm at the corner of Beaver and Main next to the Snow Maze to sample some great soup and chili. Money raised supports scholarships for our community youth to attend the Rotary Youth Leadership Awards (rmryla.org), a life-changing leadership training program for middle and high school youth where leadership skills and principles are learned, developed, and enhanced. Last year monies raised helped send 5 students to RYLA!
 
This year's soup or chili entry judged by our distinguished panel of gastronomy experts to be the best will win $100! People's choice winners for the best soup and best chili will each win $75. If you think you have the soup or chili entry to win the prize money, contact Wayne Johnson (9707683350) or Doug Crandall (9704677763) for questions or to reserve your entry spot!
Jonathan Acosta-Soto was selected as the Junior Rotary wheel for October. His parents are Rosalba and Orlin Acosta. This 8th grader has a 3.98 GPA and has goals to get straight A’s in high school, be a valedictorian and go to CSU for a degree in meteorology to be a storm specialist.
