Q: Where did you grow up?

I was born in Littleton but mostly grew up in Evergreen. I am the oldest of seven siblings. We grew up Catholic and were more wild than disciplined. My father was a mechanical engineer from   Chicago who ran his own business selling industrial pumps and fans. My mother was a social worker in Denver before we moved up the hill but switched gears and opened an arts and craft store in Evergreen followed by a retail clothing store called the B Bar K. Eventually, she sold both of those stores and opened up a thriving store in Keystone selling ski gloves and goggles. That store was so small that the inventory was kept in a nearby townhome.
        
 
                         
One of the wonderful benefits of being a Rotarian is the opportunity to visit exotic places in the company of good friends, all for a great cause.  The Rotary Club of Evergreen each year sponsors insight trips to one or more locales in the world where our money is at work transforming the
                              
Friday, November 16th at The Lake House
 
This year there will be two sittings: 11.00 a.m. and 4.00 p.m. Take your pick, but if you need transport, the Seniors’ Resource Center will be providing transport to and from the Lake House for the first, 11.30 a.m. sitting, only.
 
Both sittings will enjoy a traditional Thanksgiving meal of turkey with all the trimmings, breads and pies, music and festive cheer.
All Mountain Area seniors are welcome to attend, to bring a friend and to enjoy good companionship.
Thanks to Evergreen Rotary, there is a new instrument in Stagecoach Park in Evergreen. Lily pad symbols have joined the other instruments that have been wildly popular with children of all ages since they were originally installed with a Rotary grant in 2014. Kay LaMontagne-Treworgy, whose idea it was to bring the Musical Park to Evergreen, was again responsible for seeking a $3,000 grant to add the new instrument. Thanks Kay for all your efforts on behalf of our kids.
The Rotary Club of Evergreen hosted its 10th annual Recycle Roundup on Saturday, September 22.  This year's event was named for Mereth Meade, a long time Evergreen resident and Rotarian, who was a pioneer in recycling and other environmental causes until she passed in 2013.    There are not many environmental programs in the Evergreen community that Mereth has not touched in one way or another.  Her legacy lives on.
 
By all measures, this year's event was the biggest and most successful Recycle Day ever.  Long lines were the norm throughout the day as nearly 600 vehicles passed through the parking lot at Evergreen Country Day School to drop off everything from old tires to paint, bicycles, electronics and paper to be shredded.  Here’s a list of items we collected and recycled, preventing them from going into area landfills:
