Another 3 months has gone by and I can’t believe I am already in the final stretch of my Presidency.  Wow, it has flown by. 

Here are some of the amazing things we have done over the last 3 months:

  • We raised over $3,000 to provide 50 Christmas Baskets to needy families in Fort Collins. These Christmas baskets were delivered by over 20 Rotarians in our Club.Thank you so much to Pete Thomas & Tom Hyland for once again organizing this awesome community service program.

  • Our Purple Pins for Polio bowling event raised $117,000 Rotary’s Polio Plus campaign.We had More than 170 Fort Collins Rotarians, Colorado State University Rotaract and Fort Collins High School and RYLA Interact Club members and guests participated in the event at Chipper’s Lanes in Fort Collins on January 28th. A huge thank you to Ruth Lutes and her crew for another great event this year.

  • Due to the generous donation from club member Mike Sanders to the Polio Plus campaign, our club was able to receive the distinction as the only club in District 5440 with 100% of our members being Paul Harris Fellows.We were recognized for this achievement at our meeting on February 13th by District Governor Bill Emslie.Thank you Mike.

  • The Fort Collins Ale Trail committee has not only added new breweries & brew pubs to the app, but they have also been able to negotiate even sweeter offerings from the participating breweries & brew pubs.The Fort Collins Ale Trail now provides $80 worth of value for just a $20 donation.A big thanks to the Ale Trail committee for their continued efforts to take this major fundraiser to the next level for our club.

As always, thanks so much to all of you for your help & support in accomplishing all of these great things.  It is because of our members that we are able to accomplish so much.  We are truly ‘Making a Difference’ in not only our community, but our world.  More great things to come in the future I’m sure.
