Today, Friday, September 12th, I had lunch with Bill Sanders, Mary Anne Johnston and 800 other Rotarians from several states at the Zone Institute Luncheon in Denver. The club presidents were to start the lunch program by ringing the bell at the podium when their name and club were announced. I knew I had to be true to our club and ring the bell so that you could hear it in Summit County. It certainly got everyone's attention. Thank you Bill and Mary Anne for cheering for me while I was up front. I never would have found my seat in that large of a crowd.
Among the guests were Rotary International's President Gary Huang and his wife Corinna. This is my 2nd time meeting this incredible couple. So humbling and inspiring. Gary's word is this: Make Rotary Fun! LIGHT UP ROTARY! I want to thank Doug Berg for making Rotary Fun at last Tuesday's meeting. See how simple it can be? All this time I have stressed about finding a way to make the meetings fun. Doug made me realize that it shouldn't be up to one person to make that happen. We have a lot of creative people in our club. So, get those creative juices flowing and come out with your best costume, story, prank (Lee Edwards is good for that last one) and LET'S HAVE FUN!
See you Tuesday! MAKING GOOD THINGS HAPPEN!

Last Week in Rotary
Mary Anne Johnston led us off with an inspirational poem.
A reminder to all that the District Grant Seminar is on 9/20. If you are interested in how to get a matching grant, this is the seminar for you! For more info talk to Peggy Beeler.
John Pfarr was recognized for his Scale the Summit achievement- those donations you give with your dues each quarter do add up!
Asa Armstrong told us about a fundraiser at the Silverthorne Pavilion on September 18th. It is a concert to benefit Dominus Pachis and the Bristlecone Foundation and is sure to be a great time!
We got to hear from one of our corporate sponsors, Clarke Johnston from Apex. He told us about his business as well as reminded us that the Parade of Homes will start this year on September 20th.
Who knew that Paul Harris was a Green Bay fan? Apparently Doug Berg did as he showed us what a real Packer fan looks like and provided a lovely cap for Paul to wear this week.
Tom French was the lucky winner of of the $95 pot, but the $1400 big pot is still out there...
We ended the meeting with a lively presentation from Jen Schenk of High Country Conservation Center, and we all learned a great deal about what they do for our community.
Get out there and Make a Difference this week!

Our satellite meetings are held from 5:30 - 6:45 pm on the first and third Mondays of every month in a private room in the Backcountry Brewery, corner of Main St and Hwy 9 / Summit Blvd in Frisco. All Rotarians are welcome and we hope that you'll invite your friends and colleagues to check us out as well! No advance notice needed.
On Monday Sept 15, we are pleased to have our own Dr. David "Woody" Woodland giving his program on "Infectious Disease on the March - Ebola, Chikungunya, West Nile, and other Emerging Scourges" which he recently presented to our breakfast meeting to the great interest of all. Dr. Woodland is the Chief Scientific Officer of the Keystone Symposia and had considerable personal knowledge of this topic. We look forward to the opportunity for discussion of this current and important topic in our small group setting.
If you would like to present your passion at one of our meetings, please contact Jim Brook at 970-409-8995 or at email@example.com.

We want to thank all of those sponsors who are identifying community leaders/business professionals and bringing them to our meetings. Remember, a Prospective Member should attend 3 meetings before turning in their application, sponsor form, a short bio and $100 application fee to JULIEANNE GILCHRIST. The application will then be presented to the Membership Committee for approval and then the Board of Directors. Once approved their name and bio will be posted in our bulletin for 3 weeks. If there are no questions about the Prospective Member the induction will be scheduled.
If you would like to be a Mentor to a new member please see Ann Clement. We encourage new members to interact with Prospective/New Members as much as possible. One of the Red Badge requirements is to be a Greeter 3 times. Because our club is growing and we are experiencing so many guests, greeters are so very important. You don't have to be a new member to be a greeter. It is just one more way of participating in Club Service.

When you do business with a Corporate Partner, thank them for being a Rotary Sponsor!
