Attention club members/donors;  if you are O neg or A neg, UC Health really would love to see you now!
They are at critical stock levels and due to seasonal demands, they are unable to get any additional supplies from the national blood banks.  That starts putting community members at risk.    
Please call 970-495-8965 and schedule an appointment for this week if possible.
Any help is greatly appreciated.  
This WEEK'S meeting:
Joint social with our evening group from 5:00pm to 7:00pm. We will be at Prost Brewing, 321 Old Firehouse Alley, Fort Collins, CO 80524.

John Young
"The TABOR time warp"

Twenty-six years after Colorado voters approved the Taxpayer Bill of Rights, Colorado policy remains stuck in the 20th century, completely unable to keep up with the needs of the 21st. Victims include highways, schools and public services in general.
John writes an every-other-week column for the Coloradoan focused on state and local issues.

Upcoming Events: 
The 2018 Peach Festival is still looking for sponsorships. Support the Rotary Clubs of Fort Collins and all the work they do for our communities while spending a summer day with thousands of Northern Colorado residents while promoting your business or organization!  Contact Emily Birdsall at if interested.
- August 28th will be a Rotation Day as various different sites, more info to come!
- Don't forget to sign up to volunteer at the FCAT Booth at the Peach Fest on August 18th.

Ads on the Club Website

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.
