A Chilly day for Chili!

It was a great day for chili, soup, ice carving, and ice skating in Fort Morgan on Saturday the 14th! We had a great turnout and lots of chili and soup to help keep folks warm inside, even if it was cold outside.
 
Money raised from this event goes to support the Rotary Club of Fort Morgan's youth programs that recognize and strengthen youth in our community, including the Rotary Youth Leadership Award, a scholarship given to middle school  and high school youth that allows them to attend a youth leadership development camp in the summer. In addition, the club recognizes a student each month from the high school and middle school as the club's students of the month and invites them to have lunch with the club, meet community leaders, and practice their public speaking skills by reporting on school events each week. The Rotary club is also hosting an exchange student this year from Brazil, Matheus Cofferri, who is learning about our community and culture while sharing details about his.
 
The Rotary Club of Fort Morgan wants to thank our sponsors, without whose help this event would not have been possible.

Meet Matheus Cofferri from Brazil!

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.

Fort Morgan Rotary Christmas tree -  now you see it, now you don't

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?
