Club Bulletin - This Week's Announcements
Announcements for the Week of May 13th, 2022
 
Here's Everything You Need to Know...
 
Today’s Inspiration is: Ambition, pass it on!
 
We had great media coverage for the Wildfire Preparedness Day.  Both Channel 7 and 4 covered the event. Great job to Cindy and Laurie and their team.  More to come in the near future.
Pause for the Cause:  Christie Greene  was the brainchild behind a local organization called  "Wild Aware".  It was started in December of 2019. Its focus is to remind us and educate us that we co-exist with a number of wildlife here in our community. The group is focused on helping and educating the public around the dangers of wildlife on our roads and have been working with CDOT to create road signs and yard signs.  You have probably seen the flashing "Watch for Elk" signs along Higway74.  The most dangerous road area is Highway 74 at Hilltop.  Many car vs. animal incidents there.  In 2021, we had 40 dead animals. Christie left us with this little tidbit.  If you have an altercation with an animal, don't call 911 or the police, Dial *277 and the dispatcher will put you through to the proper organization to deal with your issue.  So, remember to dial *277 if you are involved in an incident.

 Evergreen Rotary Youth Exchange is alive and well and they believe we will be getting an Exchange Student here in Evergreen for the next school year.  We are in need of Host Families and the commitment is only for 3 months.  Our Youth Services Committee is currently recruiting for families.  If you have an interest or want to gain more information, please contact Scott White at scott@denvermachine.com (or) call Scott at 303-503-3882.

Dale Schlinsog - Road Warriors.  We will be doing our semi-annual road warrior clean up on May 21st beginning at 8:30 AM at the Country Day School.  Coffee, doughnuts and directions will be given out.  We have a designated route along Highway 74 that is our responsibility.  This is a great way for newer members to participate.  If we get enough Volunteers, we will be done in less that 2 hours.  Watch for more info.  Besides the Road Warriors, Sue Brown informed us that EPRD is having a Community clean up the last Thursday of this month and every Thursday in June.  Each Thursday a different Park will be chosen and clean up will go from 8 AM till 10 AM.  Another great opportunity for Rotarians to help out.  Contact Sue for more info or just go to EPRD website.

Chuck Adams - announced that on June 8th, from 5:30 till 7:30, we will be hosting a New Member Social.  It will take place at the Genesee Vista Clubhouse.  You should have received and invite from Holly Brekke in an email this past week.  So, all new members, Past Presidents, Committee chairs, please plan to attend so we can get our new folks up to speed.

Imagination Library.  We had a general announcement regarding Imagination Library and info was left at our tables.  Still a great and worthwhile growing program, so spread the word.

Remember our plastics recycle project?  We've won our first bench and it will be located at Stagecoach Park.  EPRD is putting in a cement pad for it to be placed on.  The pad is large enough for two and we're half way there to another bench, so let's keep up the great efforts.

Kelly Gant - did her best to try to get in some Happy Bucks, but the Zoom Gods would not allow her voice to come through.  One person in the audience did comment on what great teeth and smile Kelly has...we'll see who reads this <:)
