The 9th annual Rotary Bike Ride and Party at Marylin Hogan's Ranch are almost here!

The event will take place on September 6. You can come on bike, in a car, on horseback, or catch a ride with a friend, but make sure you come to this fun event!

The Bike ride will start at 7am in Marina Park in Dillon and have many stops along the way where you can get on or get off the party train. Or you can just ride up and back in Glenwood canyon then off to Marilyn’s. Please let Diane Monaghan know if you can make it to the ride 970-485-1377.


Once again we have been invited to Marilyn & Marc Hogan’s New Castle home for a potluck dinner after the ride.  Marilyn Hogan’s address is 6620 Peach Valley Road, New Castle – Take the New Castle exit #105 off I-70 and go west on Main Street for 2.7 miles, then take a right and go down Peach Valley Road for 1/2 mile. The house, corrals and barns are on your left.  Marilyn’s cell # 970-389-1535. The main dishes will be provided, but party goers are encouraged to bring appetizers and desserts.

There is a lot going on in September.  Our annual Bike Ride starting where ever you like and ending up at Marilyn and Mark Hogan's ranch in New Castle for a fabulous social dinner.  OK!  You don't have to ride a bike.  Just show up for dinner.  Great fun in years past.

The Zone Institute will be held in Denver September 10-14 covering must of the western states.  A great opportunity to learn more about Rotary and meet and network with many Rotary Senior leaders plus great speakers.  Our district is looking for volunteers to greet and transport visiting Rotarians at the airport and at the hotel where the event will take place.  It is not necessary to register for the entire program.  Friday morning the President of Rotary International and a Trustee of The Rotary Foundation will give a brief presentation on the current status and future of Rotary International and The Rotary Foundation.  There is also an ALL ROTARY CLUB LUNCHEON on that day which I will be attending.  There is a special Presentation Dinner and Dance announcing the new District Governors for the year 2015-16 and music provided by “Snake Eyes”.  On Saturday they are also organizing the Polio Plus Fund Raising 5K Race. Please see me if you wish to attend any of these programs or the lunch.

We will be supporting our Community Dinner by once again volunteering on September 2nd  We have special guests assisting us that evening.  Peter Ewing, our District Governor, and his wife Mary Jean will be there supporting us. If you have never had the opportunity to do so it is quite the experience and so rewarding to serve, meet and greet our community.

September 13th is Make A Difference Day.  Dave Preaus is organizing a group of Rotarians to assist in checking in volunteers that morning and some to assist with lunch early afternoon.  This is really a fun event and a great way to make a statement about Rotary’s presence in the community.

Also, there is a Memorial on the evening of September 13th for one of our members, Jim Beltzer who recently passed away.  We will be announcing the time and place later. 

If you have an event you want everyone to know about, a story or picture of a special person or event please email Diane Monaghan and she will be happy to add it to the bulletin.   See you on Tuesday where we will welcome over 40 RYLA students and family members.

Last Week in Rotary 

Last week was all about new people. We welcomed 4 new exchange students and 3 new members, and got to meet Carlos Abel the winner of the Car Raffle!

We are lucky to have three wonderful new members to our club: Ron Lara, Mike Connolly, and Charlotte Jacobson. We learned a bit about them during the induction, and even had family members from other Rotary clubs come celebrate with us! If you haven't yet met our new members, make a point of saying hello at our next meeting. These folks are going to be a great addition to our club.

Make new friends, but keep the old, as the saying goes. Last week we also got to hear a classification talk from our oldest member, Bob Follet.

Linda Lichdendahl​ pointed out the Monthly Summit Daily Rotary page, published last Tuesday and sponsored by Betty Naftz.

Deb Hage told us all about the Rotary Community Dinner night, coming up on September 2. I heard a rumor that our District Governor will be there that night, so come and help prepare, serve and enjoy community!

Make a Difference Day is on September 13th, and David Preaus is heading that up for us. He needs volunteers, so get out your calendar and let him know if you can help!

The annual Rotary Bike Ride is approaching on September 6th with a wonderful party afterwards at Marylin Hogan's ranch. All are welcome to participate on the ride or just for the party. If you want to join the bike ride, please talk to Diane Monaghan or Michele Knight who are helping organize it this year.

Paul Harris was wearing a CML hat provided by Bernie Zurbriggen, who apparently does not have many hats in his closet, but did tell us a bit about this one that he won. 

Dave Matthews shared his vast array of Rotary flags obtained on his travels, and Deb Irvine introduced our program with Mountain Mentors.

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.
