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.

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.

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

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.

The Peach Festival was another resounding success!  We had a fundraising goal of $65,000.  That was pretty aggressive, but we made $71,000.
Our club received $6915, which we will certainly put to good use in our causes.
Meanwhile, the effort also contributed $23,882 to STEM efforts in our community.
Great work, everyone, and THANK YOU!

It was great to be visited by our District Governor Ken Small, and AG Jerry Westbrook.  We greatly appreciate Ken's support and leadership for District 5440!

He mentioned the importance of the Guatemala project that we're starting.  The need for clean cookstoves is huge, as there are a great number of respiratory problems due to burning fires in the homes.  And it's dangerous for the children!

Ken reminded us that Africa has had no new cases of polio for a full year now, which is a direct result of Rotary's dedication for thirty years.  Our contributions matter!

District Assembly is October 3 in Cheyenne, and District Conference is May 19-21 2016 in Jackson Hole.  These will be great events to work with our colleagues on some of the large issues we're tackling.

And the RI Conference is May 28 - June 1 2016 in Seoul!

I can't believe my year of being President of our club is here.  We have a great club with a lot of tradition and I'm honored and humbled to be your President during the 2015-16 year!

In working closely with our Leadership, our President Elect, Jacque, and having met with many members.  I've outlined goals I’d like the club to achieve this year and next. 
  • Have Fun (as always)
  • Increase Awareness of Rotary Service -  “what we do”
  • Increase Engagement of our Rotary Passion -  “taking action”
  • 1+ year goals:
    • Identify a longer term project
    • Younger members, diversity & club satellite
    • Grant Development in our club
    • International Project
  • Lastly, don't screw up a good thing!  
In my year and a half of preparing for this role I've been incredibly inspired by what Rotary stands for and what our club has accomplished over the years!  However there is still a lot of service that is needed in our community and the world. 
Let’s have a great year and continue “To Improve Lives!”.

Pay a compliment. Buy a coffee.  Do something unexpectedly kind and thoughtful for another person. Show someone you care.

Liz Miller consistently inspired others with random acts of kindness.  She was a servant of people, a genuine burst of positivity, a believer in paying it forward.

Liz left us too soon after a seizure stopped her heart when she was twenty - four. On this anniversary of her passing, the Jim, Suzanne, Alex, Laura, Sarah and Ben Miller family is continuing her legacy by encouraging others to “Do A Liz Thing”.  One little ripple of kindness can make waves.  Please participate on March 28th and then share it with us on the Facebook page  You can post a video, a photo or just share your encouraging story.

January 25, 2015 will mark the date of the 5th Annual “Purple Pins for Polio” Event put on by the four Rotary Clubs in Fort Collins. This two hour bowling event has raised over $45,000 in support of Rotary International’s world-wide fight to eradicate polio. Since 1985, Rotary International has raised $1.2 billion to help reduce the number of cases of polio in the world from 350,000 annually in 1985, to fewer than 250 annually today. There remain three countries that have not stopped transmission of the disease; Afganistan, Nigeria and Pakistan. We are this close!

Our deepest congratulations and honor to Cassidy Montoya of Centennial High School!  This was a joint decision by the combined Rotary Clubs of Fort Collins, and Poudre School District.

Cassidy Montoya is a social studies and financial literacy teacher and the Alternative Cooperative Education Coordinator at Centennial High School. She has worked in PSD for six years.
Ms. Montoya initially planned to be a school counselor, but a principal advised her to become a teacher first so she would understand teaching and be better able to support both students and teachers. “That piece of advice was a game changer, and I’ve never looked back since,” wrote Montoya in her application.
As a teacher, Ms. Montoya is most proud of the relationships she builds with students and is always touched when a Centennial student honors her at their graduation ceremony, either with a rose presentation or by asking her to walk them up the stairs during the ceremony.
Outside of the classroom, Montoya coordinates elective credits for paid employment and volunteer work hours for students. She also takes a student team to the Junior Achievement Stock Market Challenge every year and helps find job openings for students.
Ms. Montoya was nominated by Centennial principal Mike Roberts who described her as a teacher who sets high expectations for her students while providing the support they need to reach the bar.

Paul Harris famously wrote, “This is a changing world: we must be prepared to change with it. The story of Rotary will have to be written again and again.” While we will never know what Rotarian Paul would have thought of the Internet Age, I think I do know what he would have said about the idea of a Rotary website: that not only should we have one, but that it should be the best possible – keeping up with advances in technology, and always responding to the needs of Rotarians.

Hog Wild (promise there will be more food), Perkins Restaurant (pies) and Supermarket Liquor will cater the event again. Also, count on a giant inflatable slide and the Balloon Lady!
Please register you and your guests on the Foothills Rotary website and please include your email in case we need to do a mass communication before the event. Remember that you need to be signed up for Clubrunner to access the website now. Contact Carl Dierschow if you have problems.

Subject: Update on Dennis
Dale, please share the following with the Rotary members. Hopefully Dennis can visit the Phoenix Rotary Club and stay active that way.
Just another FYI - Thad Dunn is putting together "Team Hogerty" to Walk to End Alzheimer's in Loveland in Sept 17th- maybe some club members would want to join.
Thanks, Di
Hi all: These have been challenging months for the Hogerty family. Dennis was diagnosed with early onset Alzheimer's Jan 2012, retired in June of that year and I retired in December.

Dear fellow Rotarians,

Our goal in 2013-14 is to Engage Rotary, Change Lives . All of us know that Rotary has incredible potential to do good work. It's time to recognize how much more we could be doing and start working on new ways to turn that potential into reality. We're going to do this by engaging Rotarians – by getting them involved, by getting them inspired, and by making sure that all Rotarians know just what a gift they have in Rotary.

It was a typical autumn in Chicago in 1946. There was a brisk, cold wind out of the northwest. The Chicago Cubs had just finished another unsuccessful season in the National League. And Leland Case asked Rotary International founder Paul P. Harris to write another article for the Rotarian, the typical, obligatory "It's Anniversary time again, what's in store for Rotary next year?" article.
