The Month at a Glance!
 
Marcia Walsh Interview with Rotarian, Janet Doyle, November 10, 2016

Q: Where did you grow up?
 
I grew up in Orchard Park, a suburb of Buffalo, New York in an Ozzie and Harriet setting. My parents were originally from Baltimore, Maryland and relocated to Buffalo because of my Dad’s job with Bethlehem Steel. I am the middle daughter of three sisters. We grew up with the understanding that girls could do and be whatever we wanted.
OK, so you’ve climbed all the 14ers in Colorado.  What’s next?  How about another 5000 feet?  If you’re into reaching new summits, then the January 2018 Rotary trip to Africa is for you.  Evergreen Rotary’s Curt Harris will lead a group of Rotarians and young women from Kisa to the summit Africa’s tallest peak, Mt. Kilimanjaro, at 19,143 feet.  Kisa is Africaid’s program to develop leadership skills of young Tanzanian women.  Talk about reaching new summits!  For these young women climbing Kilimanjaro is no less awesome than the new summits they are achieving in their educational endeavors.
Darlene Melton Interview with Marcia Walsh February 24, 2017
 
Q: Where did you grow up?
 
I was born in Elmhurst, a Chicago suburb and learned to speak German before English. My father escaped from the Ukraine by train after my grandfather was shot for refusing to become a communist. He made it to East Germany where my mother’s family lived and became a stable hand on my maternal grandparents’ horse farm. My parents fell in love and fled to West Germany without telling any of her family. They were caught in a stream between East and West Germany where my father was tortured before being left in the forest to die. My mother avoided the torture because she carried a picture of herself on a horse which fortunately had a band on her sleeve evidencing her affiliation with Hitler’s youth movement.

 
We are oh so close to eradicating polio in the world – permanently.  Please join us in the effort to go the final mile.  The Rotary Club of Evergreen is hosting a “dining for dollars” event at Tuscany Tavern in Evergreen on Sunday, May 7, from 4:00 to 9:00 pm to raise funds for the cause.  Guests will be able to order off the regular menu and Tuscany Tavern will donate 25 percent of the proceeds to Rotary’s Polio Plus program.   So, come and learn about the great work Rotary is doing and help strike this terrible disease from our vocabulary forever!!!  For reservations please call Tuscany Tavern 303-674-3739 or book on-line at http://www.tuscany-tavern.com/.
