The fifth annual Fort Morgan Rotary Chili Cook-Off results are in!
 
For the second year in a row, Jason Meyers, currently serving as the President of the Fort Morgan Rotary Club, had the most favored chili, as voted by 50+ public tasters/judges. John and Belinda Pickens came in 2nd place and Amy Green came in 3rd.
 
This Saturday, December 3rd, is the Fort Morgan Rotary Club's annual Chili Cook-Off in conjunction with the Christmas Capital of the Plains. 
 
Stores on Main Street between Beaver and Kiowa will be hosting the chili cooks at stations set up in their stores. These locations are The Flower Petaler, Unique Embroidery, Business Mart, Rent A Center, Browns Shoes, The Oak Tree, and JC Pennys.
 
The public can come by between 11-1 to taste the chili and vote for their favorite chili, the spiciest chili, and the chili with the best presentation!
 
Tickets are $5 per person and allow the holder to taste all of the chili entries. So come support the Rotary club, shop our local stores, and get some great chili!
 
The Fort Morgan Rotary Club gladly participated in this year's Christmas Capital of the Plains events, including the decorating of Christmas trees in Riverside Park. We did such a good job, somebody decided they had to have it.
 
Club president Jason Meyers, his wife Brittany, Doug Crandall, and his wife Shelli came to the park Saturday morning in the freezing cold (if we'd waited a couple of hours it would have been much nicer) to decorate the tree with blue LED lights and gold tinsel and ornaments in the theme of Rotary's colors. We did a pretty good job, wouldn't you agree?
The Fort Morgan Rotary club senior Wheel of the Month for November is Hallie Wickham, daughter of Carrie and Jason Whickham.
Tessa Frasco was selected to be the November Rotary student of the month. Parents, Linda and Jason, should be very proud of this 8th grader who has a 4.0 GPA.
Kinsey is ranked #4 in the senior class and plans to attend Utah State University with a major in accounting.
Congratulations to John Schwenke, son of Patricia Mendoza on being selected as October Junior wheel of the month for the Fort Morgan Rotary club.
The Fort Morgan Rotary club welcomes 8th grader Beto Martinez to Rotary meetings in September. Parent, Lisa Mares, should be proud of her son’s accomplishments and ambitions.
 

The Third Annual Fort Morgan Rotary Club Chili Cook-off benefited from warmer weather and Santa's Workshop crowds and saw a much larger crowd than last year, when the temperature was in the single digits.

The Fort Morgan Rotary Club is hosting a fundraise during the Fort Morgan Chamber Christmas Parade.  We will be hosting a full service gourmet hot chocolate bar, with warm cookies and cinnamon rolls for sale. We will also be selling glow/light up items for children.

 

The ducks were flying, or dropping depending on your perspective, on a beautiful Fall Saturday out at the Fort Morgan airport as Rotarians and hopeful duck sponsors gathered to see the annual dropping of the ducks. Image

While we didn't sell as many apples as we wanted to, we still had lots of fun and lots of good comments on our fund raiser at BOBstock this year.

Five years since its debut, Rotary Club Central is getting a big upgrade
When we introduced Rotary Club Central in 2012, it revolutionized goal tracking and planning for clubs and districts — no more filling out paper club-planning forms or passing along boxes of historical club information every time a new leader took office. Rotary Club Central offered clubs and districts a quantifiable way to begin measuring local and global impact, specifically membership initiatives, service activities, and Rotary Foundation giving. But as with any technological advancement, in a few short years, Rotary Club Central began to show its age, and Rotarians took notice. They...
Rotary International Board adopts new zone structure
At its January 2017 meeting, the Rotary International Board of Directors adopted a new zone structure for Rotary clubs. Rotary bylaws require the Board to complete a comprehensive review of the 34 Rotary zones no less often than every eight years to ensure that each zone has an approximately equal number of Rotarians. The Board’s previous review of the zones occurred in 2008. The Board earlier approved the creation of three regional workgroups to develop rezoning proposals for Asia, Europe/Africa, and the Americas. These workgroups comprised one representative (either a current director,...

Convention: Southern hospitality
The Atlanta Host Organization Committee is offering some good old-fashioned Southern hospitality at the Rotary International Convention from 10 to 14 June. It has planned a wide range of activities featuring everything from good food and music to inspiring tours of local landmarks. If it’s your first convention, these events are chances to meet fellow Rotarians from around the world, and if you’re an experienced convention goer, you can catch up with old friends. Hall of Fame baseball player Hank Aaron will host Rotarians for a “Strike Out Polio” night at the new SunTrust Park, where you’ll...
Member spotlight: The power of the press
When Teguest Yilma helped found the Rotary Club of Addis Ababa Entoto in 2002, she thought polio had already been eradicated from most of the world. But while Ethiopia had been free of the disease, Yilma was shocked to learn that new cases had started cropping up in surrounding countries such as Somalia. “I was thinking, it’s not possible, we can’t be free if the countries around us are not free,” she says. Yilma, the managing editor of Capital, Ethiopia’s largest English weekly newspaper, has brought a journalist’s skills to the fight against polio. She became vice chair of the Ethiopia...
