                Sharon Mensing organized, coordinated and orchestrated the presentation by our Rotary Youth Leadership Academy, (“RYLA”) students: Perri Meeks, Zava Zupin, and Young RYLA students, Macayla Scheidt and Mim Worster. Thank you Sharon and thank you RYLA Students for your respective presentations. They were entertaining and informative. You made us proud!

                Our Greeters were Ange Catterson and Julie Taulman. Our guests and visiting Rotarians were also introduced by Julie. Thank you both!

                Jenny Wall gave us our “Thought for the Day.” Thank you Jenny for telling us about your favorite book: “The Alchemist,” and how it impacted your life.

                Ellen Kendall handled “Good News” for us. One notable aspect of Good News was Cheryl Krumrie sharing her secrets for winning two Raffle prizes, (including the Grand Prize – “Be in Sanibel.”) As Cheryl was relating her good fortune; I could not help but think of that classic 1969 Rolling Stone song off their “Let it Bleed” album: “You can’t always get what you want.”

                “You can’t always get what you want (3X)...” (“Be Gourmet”)

                “But if you try sometimes, well you just might find…” (Putting two Raffle Tickets each in the “Yee Haw” and “Be in Sanibel” buckets.)

                “You get what you need…” (Cowboy boots from FM Light and more in the Yee- Haw package and a trip to Sanibel Island, Florida in the “Be in Sanibel” package.)

                Our next meeting is at the Butcherknife Brewing Company on Tuesday, September 14, 2014 at 4:00 pm.


                A BIG SHOUT OUT AND THANK YOU TO KATHY ELLIOTT AND GILLIAN MORRIS for organizing our flower barrel pick-up and the bar-b-que, catered by The Smokehouse – under new management. Thank you to fellow Rotarian, Mark Fitzgerald for supplying festive adult beverages from Butcherknife Brewery. We also took advantage of “left-overs” scavenged from the Barn Dance provider Central Park Liquor.

                Thank you also to all those Rotarians, Family members and friends who made light work of picking up the flower barrels before the snow flies. I am always amazed, (and I should not be) how well efficiently and quickly that project is completed!

Lift Up - $45.00

Good News - $250.00

We had a Club Program today to re-energize and re-organize all out Club Committees. A big “Thank You” to Ellen Kendall and Tara Weaver for getting that Program organized and moving.

Thank you to our Greeters, Lynna Broyles and Sharon Mensing, who also introduced our guests and visiting Rotarians.

Cheryl Krumrie provided us inspiration from the athletic side of life with her: Thought for the Day.

We celebrated Rotary Club membership Anniversaries for: Geneva Taylor (26 years), John Holloway (22 years), Jane Denning Bedell (11 years), Winnie Delliquadri (10 years), and Nancy Spillane (11 years.)

We also celebrated three real September 9, 2014 birthdays today. Our Exchange Student, Sebastian “Sebo” Camargo, turned 17 today. Rachelle Summer’s son, Eric, turned 15 today. Last but not least, our own Past Club President and Past Assistant District Governor, Jane Denning Bedell, celebrated yet another birthday today!(See, below.) (I should talk!)

Almost last chance to buy Raffle Tickets for the Barn Dance before this Saturday eve., September 13, 2014, at Wandering Creek Ranch and be able to charge them to your account. We cannot accept charges for the Raffle Tickets at the event, as we were reminded by Kathie Sack and Carol Parish. Carol also thanked all our Sponsors.

Gillian Morris reminded us that we have Flower Barrel pick-up at 5:00 pm, at the Rodeo Grounds circa 5:00 pm on Tuesday, September 16, 2014. We have 9 trailers and could use several more. Please touch base with Gillian or Kathy Elliottt if you can provide a trailer.

Please also note that we do have a Noon meeting next Tuesday as well. Our Program is Rotary Youth Leadership Awards, (“RYLA.”) Sharon Mensing will be hosting the RYLA Program.

Finally, for a busy Tuesday, The Smokehouse will treat us to its customary post-Flower Barrel pick-up Bar-B-Que at Howelsen Hill. The Smokehouse on Lincoln Ave., is the bad weather back-up. Thank you to Gillian and Kathy Elliott for stepping up and taking over the Chairs of Flower Barrels from Debbie Aragon and Karl Bunker, who left: “big shoes to fill.” Kathy and Gillian didn’t miss a beat.

Please everyone and families join us for the Bar-B-Que regardless of whether you were a “Flower-Barrel Picker-Upper.” It is a Club Party.

Geneva Taylor reminded us that our Election Forum will be held on September 30, 2014 and October 7, 2014 at our Noon meeting.

Gillian also announced the: “Four Way Test” Essay Scholarship competition sponsored by  Rotary Districts 5440, 5450 and 5470, and the Better Business Bureau. Mike Forney spoke to the significance of the $5,000.00 scholarship as well. We may have a coalition assembled by Gillian encompassing our Club’s: Four Way Test, Scholarship and Student of the Month Committees , as well as our Interact Club, at the Steamboat Springs High School. It would be great if “one of our own” students could win that $5,000.00 scholarship!

On, Tuesday, September 23, 2014, conveniently commencing at 4:00 p.m., our meeting will be held at the Butcherknife Brewing Company.  We will hold a short business meeting and the Program will be a tour of the Brewery. There will be an opportunity to sample the “festive adult beverages” brewed by our hosts. In addition, Soda Creek Pizza will be making a delivery to the Butcherknife Brewery! Thank you to Mark Fitzgerald for hosting our September 23, 2014 meeting at the Butcherknife Brewing Company, and to Steve Hitchcock, as we ease into “Happy Hour”!

Next meeting, Tuesday, September 16, 2014, Noon, at The Grand.

Good News: $ 317.00 (Thank you Jane!)

Our upcoming Barn Dance took precedence in our meeting on Tuesday as rightly it should have with the Barn Dance just around the corner on Saturday, September 13, 2014 at Wandering Creek Ranch.

Timbers are going up and the Peace Pavilion is taking shape . . .


Posted by David Wittlinger on Jul 31, 2014

The concrete perimeter slab got poured this week for the Peace Pavilion at Rotary River Park.  Timber erection will begin next week and things are progressing smoothly to complete this project by the August 12th dedication.  Special thanks to Matt Tredway of Steamboat Concrete Works for his entire crew that are our local rockstars of the paving world.
