Thank you to Kris Hammond for doing Good News, which netted $141.00 for our Scholarship Program.

By default, Jim Moylan performed Thought for the Day.

We were able to muddle through and greet each other without the services of our Greeters today. We will remedy that situation for our next Noon Meeting at The Grand on Tuesday, August 19, 2014. Our featured speaker will be “Australian of the Year - 2006,” Dr. Ian Frazer, accompanied by his wife, Caroline.

We celebrated August Birthdays. Ron Thom and Kris Hammond were on hand for our rousing rendition of “Happy Birthday,” led by Kris Hammond! Other Club members with August Birthdays are: Diane Johnson, Karen McRight, Jane Toothaker, Geneva Taylor and Dave Zabel.

John Kuhn and Michael Roberts updated us on the financing for the Rotary Peace Pavilion and the construction of the Peace Pavilion, respectively.

Caring Rotarians should try to take some time to visit fellow Rotarian, Dave Zabel at the Doak Walker Care Center in Casey’s Pond. Ellen circulated a card for Dave. Thank you, Ellen.

Scott Marr announced that fellow Rotarian, John Kerst, (Morning Club), will be honored by the City at 5:30 pm at City Hall on Thursday.

Coleman Cook asked for volunteers to help spruce up and prune at Rotary Park before the August 12, 2014 Dedication of the Pavilion and our Club’s 40th Birthday Celebration, on Thursday.

Paul Hebert sought volunteers for staining  the Pavilion tongue and groove ceiling boards at the Bonn Timber Yard, under the: “James Brown Soul-Center of the Universe Bridge,” next to Aces High Waste Management Company, on Thursday.

Gillian Morris orchestrated our first drawing for the “Seasoned” (Older) Rotarian hosting lunch for a Newer (“Rookie”) Rotarian as part of our Rotarian Fellowship activities. The first  “Seasoned” Rotarian is Karl Bunker and he will take “Rookie” Rotarian, Ray Martinez to lunch with the $31.00 raised in the drawing, (as long as it is done on Thursday.) Thank you Gillian for organizing the drawing.

Lisa Schlichtman entertained us with her Classification Talk.  Lisa covered her childhood in the St. Louis suburbs, to college at the University of Missouri – Columbia, where Lisa majored, (surprise), in Journalism. Lisa then told us about her careers. First, Lisa’s career as a mother of two soccer playing boys, while simultaneously pursuing a career in hog farming. The farm grew to 15,000 hogs! Eventually, Lisa ended up in the newspaper business. Lisa is currently the Editor of The Steamboat Pilot and Today, which is what brought her and her “Iron Man” husband, Mike to Steamboat Springs in the first place. I did not realize the connection there at first, but apparently success in hog farming leads to success in journalism! I would not have made that connection without Lisa’s Classification Talk today.

Thank you Lisa for a very informative and entertaining Classification Talk.

Elle Kendall, then lead us in a team-building exercise, designed to help us all get to know each other a little better, several people at a time. Thank you, Ellen.

Attendance: was 56%.

Next Meeting: Tuesday, August 12, 2014 at Rotary River Park for the Dedication of the Rotary Peace Pavilion and our Club’s 40th Birthday Celebration. District 5440 Governor, Phil Murphy and his wife, Sara, will participate in the festivities. If you can help with the set-up, please arrive by 6:00 pm. Otherwise the Dedication and Party start at 6:30 pm. This is a Family event!

Respectfully submitted,

Jim Moylan, Club President

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.

Lynaia conducted the Youth Protection Training. If you have not completed your “Affidavit” you need to do so.  The Affidavit is available from Lynaia. We do this as a Club, so everyone is cleared to work with our youth. Thank you for following up on this. Thank you, Lynaia for your very detailed work on this.

Lynaia then introduced Nissa Parker our Steamboat Springs Exchange Student who spent last year in Italy under the Youth Exchange Program. Thank you to Nissa for a very informative and entertaining presentation. Thank you also to Nissa’s Mom for attending our meeting today.

Our Greeters were Ellen Kendall and Gareth Mensing, who also introduced our guests and visiting Rotarians. Thank you both.

Mark Fitzgerald gave us the Thought for the Day. Thank you, Mark.

Great News on the Rotary Peace Pavilion. Chair, John Kuhn brought us past the $60,000 goal as he spoke! Thank you also to John’s guest, Carolyn Gibson, representing the Gibson Family. The Gibson Family donated trees to help landscape the Pavilion grounds. Very much appreciated.

We received a “thank-you” note from the Hayden Valley Elementary School for our participation in their Passport Reading Program. We also received a “thank you” note from the Steamboat Springs High School After Prom Committee for our donation to that cause.

 Brian Harvey handled Good News for us today, which netted $151.00.

Attendance was 67%.

Next Meeting, Tuesday, August 5, 2014 at 12:00 pm at “The Grand.”

August 12, 2014 – 6:30 pm Rotary Peace Pavilion Dedication- Rotary River Park.

Thank you to Karen McRight and Steve Sehnert who served as our Greeters.

Karen introduced our guests and visiting Rotarians – thank you again, Karen.

Jeremy Brehling gave us a “Rotary Moment” as well as three Thoughts for the Day. Much appreciated Jeremy.

We were finally able to give Sam Haslem a replica of his $4,000 check representing the proceeds from Sam’s Roast, which the Haslem family so generously donated to the building of the Rotary Peace Pavilion. Thank you Sam and family!

The Rotary Peace Pavilion “Staining Crew” from Saturday 7/12/14 and 7/19/14 were recognized for their hard work staining the timbers that will be, (dare I say?) “erected” with the raising of the Pavilion exterior. Thank you ladies and gentlemen for volunteering your time for this worthy effort.

John Kuhn gave us an update on our fund-raising efforts for the Rotary Peace Pavilion. We are almost at our $60,000 goal in a very short period of time. Additional donations were made today! Thank you John and the Committee for your diligent and very successful efforts to date.

Thank you to Scott Marr for his solicitation efforts during Good News. Randy reported that we received $310.00 for our scholarship fund this week.

Our Program today was: “Leadership Steamboat – Yampa Valley Gives,” capably presented in Power Point fashion by Barbara Robinson and Matt Eidt. Barbara and Matt explained the: “Day of Giving” program benefitting so many non-profit organizations in Routt County.

Jackie reported our Attendance today was 60%.

Jackie also notified us that today is the Second Reading  for Alycia Cole.

Adjourn: 1:20 pm.

Respectfully submitted,

Jim Moylan, Club President
