Welcome to Our Newest Members               Rob, Mike & Linda!

Rob Simpson is an avid fly fisher, trail runner, hiker, skier and backpacker, which makes him particularly eager to live and work in the Rocky Mountains.  He has already gotten involved with the Salida Sunrise Rotary Club by working on the Scholarship Committee this term.
“I look forward to becoming deeply rooted in the community and being able to stand back 10 years from now to see how CMC has grown to meet the unique needs of Salida and Poncha Springs,” said Simpson.
Michael Verderaime is the Latino and Youth Outreach Coordinator with The Alliance Against Domestic Abuse.
Mike's background is in education and is originally from Colorado having taught school in Colorado Springs for several years.  Mike received a college scholarship from Rotary in the past so he has had a long-time association with Rotary.
Mike has signed up to be on the Community Grants committee this year and has done a great job providing input.
