What's happening
What a great day of building the new gardens at Teaching Tree in September - and this was just the morning crew!
 

 
Let's make this the last year we have to raise funds for Polio!
 

 
 
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!
 

 
 
Today, Jerry Westbrook awarded our Rotary Club with a special commendation for our contributions to End Polio Now.  And there's more to come after the Purple Pins benefit in 2016!
 

 
 
We are proud to see that the bikers completed their trek across the US and met their fundraising goals to fight polio!
 

 
 
Foothills Rotary Club is honored to contribute $1000 to support the wonderful work that ChildSafe does in our community!
 

 
 
Several people have wondered how they can share information and photos through our club's Facebook page.  It's amazingly easy!
 
 
Then look for this box near the top:
 
You can go ahead and write something, or click on "Photo" to upload a picture from your computer.  When you're done, just hit the button and it'll be made visible to hundreds of people following our page.
 
Couldn't be easier!
 

 
 

On September 15th, we are honored to welcome Sal Giunta, the first living Medal of Honor recipient since the Vietnam war.

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!”.
