Team Rotary

      I'm out of town for three weeks and will miss you all at our weekly meetings, but hope to see many of you at the District Conference in Denver Friday, May 2 and Saturday, May 3. That's a great time to celebrate all that is Rotary with your fellow club members and those from our sister clubs! Register in advance, come for one or both days. For more info either see Butch Elich or contact me. During these next three weeks, Past President Rolo Cuadrado will chair our breakfast meetings, and Michele Knight will chair our next satellite meeting on Monday, April 21. Get yourself prepared for Rolo's "Rotarian Magazine Trivia" - read the latest monthly edition fully and be the star of that show!

     That reminds me of one of the great strengths of Rotary that I've been fortunate to experience many times over the years - we always have each others' backs. This is especially true in Summit County Rotary, where we have so many capable members and such well deserved pride on all that we do. When any leader of a committee or project needs a little assistance or temporary cover, there are other dedicated members there to step up to ensure that Rotary's work gets done. It's a great feeling to be a real part of a strong team that does so much for others in our community and the world beyond.... and it's a serious responsibility to step up when needed. Knowing we have such cover makes it possible for us to take on key roles. Teamwork. High Fives. Service Above Self.

     Right now, the #1 job for most of us on this team is to finish strong with our Ice Melt ticket sales. We have only one more week to make that important fundraiser a big success for 2014, and to provide the money we'll need to continue our service projects during 2015. Sales end Sunday, April 20. I hope you don't have any unsold tickets. You can still get more tickets from Diane Monaghan or John Pfarr. Give them your full support and turn in your money and stubs by next week!

Last Week at Rotary, Tuesday April  8

* Thanks to Judi LaPoint for her froggy can-do Inspiration to deflect pessimism, and to our smiling duo of newby greeters, Erin Major and Lori Burke.

* Ice Melt Chair Diane Monaghan updated the sales thermometer, recruited three ice device watchers, and reminded us to sell out by the April 20 deadline.

* Youth Exchange - spring break next week will see Rasmus Madsen heading for Hawaii, and Florence Solberger on a trip to the eastern US including the DC area.

* Four Way Test - our annual ethics training with all 7th graders - Jeff McElhattan begin sign-ups for Rotarian facilitators for May 8 and 9. See Jeff or Gary Nicholds.

* Our 9 Health Fair last Saturday served 731 in various ways. Many thanks to Linda Lichtendahl and all Rotarians and other volunteers.

* Past President Sandy Mortensen led the elimination drawing for the free night hotel room at our District Conference in Denver for early bird registrants, first weekend in May. Bill Sanders was the winner! Still time to register, one day or both, and the Club will reimburse 2/3 of the fees for all participating members.  

* Another Corporate Sponsor, Jim Neeve of Mike's Mountain Motors, was introduced by Bill Sanders and strongly endorsed by happy customers Lou Wagner and several others.

* Our Club and several others in Rotary District 5450 are proposing that a currently unnamed peak located on the Continental Divide about 2 miles west of Loveland Pass be named "Rotary Peak". Formal application and gathering of support letters are in progress.

* Past President Rolo Cuadrado was a repeat winner of the weekly raffle, but even with the practice he was still not able to find the ace of spades.

* Fun Fund - Mike Whitehill thanked Alpine Bank and financial literacy volunteers in training; Rob Irvine introduced the new Festival logo; Lou Wagner with pride for those final four Wisconsin Badgers; Sandy for son Hunter Mortensen's election, and Jeff for son Kevin Burns' election. 

* Program - Sheriff John Minor did a fine job of informing and entertaining the crowd with his program on Weed. Risks from local grow ops and processing include butane explosion / fire, bad electrical wiring, property damage. Inside Edition story, paired with locals' spoof mocking the tolerance of alcohol. Lots of Q&A.

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 Debra Irvine.  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!
