Our Rotation Day this month, April 24th, will be to have four teams working at local charities:

  • Homeless Gear
  • Crossroads Safehouse
  • Catholic Charities
  • Food Bank

Make sure to sign up by sending an email to Mike Hohl - there are still a few slots open. This is the day to apply our hands, minds and energy to our community!

What is Rotation Day? This is a powerful part of Rotary's heritage, coming from the days where each meeting was held at a different member's location. Our club has done that once or twice a year, but in this case the focus is on "rotating away from our usual format" to make powerful contributions more directly.

Starting April 1st, we will be accepting website ads from those outside our club. So if you know someone who might be interested to get a little visibility for their company or cause, point them to this information.

Have them download the sponsorship guide here and then fill out this form. There are only ten slots available. First come first served!

All ads will be approved by our Club's board, to keep this from being a poor representation of Rotary.

Contact Carl if you have any questions!

Our Fort Collins Ale Trail has been such a hit that other organizations are now talking with us about using the app for their own fundraising efforts!

Hence, Donor Trail has been born.

It's time for you to update the app on your phone - you should now be getting notices about this. Don't worry, none of your Ale Trail hiking is lost!

Go to your Apple or Android app store to download DonorTrail.

Due to the help of a very generous donation, we today achieved a club where every member - noon group, evening group, and those who will join later in 2018 - is a Paul Harris Fellow.

It's not about getting a fancy certificate. It's about getting everyone involved in eradicating the scourge of polio from our planet. Forever.

We won't be satisfied until the number of cases is zero!

Dear Ale Trail Hiker,

Happy Holidays and thanks for your support of the Foothills Rotary Club and our Beneficiaries! In November we distributed our first checks to our beneficiaries so thank you very much for all your support.

We wanted to update you with some year-end statistics and here are some highlights for the Trail since we launched at the end of May this year:

  • Over $9,000 raised
  • Over 1600 visits to our Trail Partners - MANY THANKS to them
  • 970 Hikers have registered for the Trail
  • The 2:00 pm hour on Saturdays is the most popular hour for checking in at a partner.

If you are looking for a belated stocking stuffer (or New Year's present) for your friends and family, consider buying a Trail Pass for them. You can buy one here and we will mail them out to you. Or contact us after you place your order and we will meet up with you and hand deliver them to you!

If you haven't purchased a trail pass yet, get into the Season's Spirit and purchase a Trail Pass via the app to help our local charities and start your hike.

Finally, stay tuned. We will have some exciting announcements in January about the Trail and our Trail Partners and an update to our new DonorTrail Platform.

Have safe and Happy Holidays and we hope to see you on the Trail,

Ale Trail Team

We now have a club account on Instagram!

This is a wonderful social media app for sharing pictures and videos - here's one of the photos I shared from our Christmas party.

At the moment, we're following 34 other Rotary, Interact and Rotaract clubs around the globe, and we have 172 people and clubs following us. So you can see how powerful this is for creating relationships!

If you want to install Instagram on your smart phone, go ahead and follow foothillsrotary. And join the conversation!

The Fort Collins Ale Trail and iHeart radio are sponsoring a monthly event at various breweries to promote the Ale Trail.  We are calling the events “Ale Trail Days” and each event will be simulcast on Radio 94.9.  We will have several Rotarians at each event promoting the Ale Trail in our distinctive yellow t-shirts and will have prize giveaways along with the radio broadcast.  The best part is iHeart will run 150 ads promoting the Ale Trail and the event for two weeks prior to each event.  This is generating great awareness for Foothill’s Rotary and the Ale Trail.
