NEXT WEEKEND! -  You are invited to the House of Friendship at this year's District's Celebration, and to our club's Hospitality Suite for a fabulous time with Kimra’s signature pancakes, libations and lots of fun and laughs.

A House of Friendship at the District Conference is an area where clubs can display and promote their local or international projects or other activities. This allows Rotarians in the district to learn about the wondrous array of projects undertaken by fellow, local Rotarians and for clubs looking to partner with others to see what is available. There are also displays from District Committees and Rotary groups or related organizations allowing participants to further explore the wonders of Rotary. Commercial vendors will be present as well selling Rotary clothing, jewelry, pins, etc. 
 
Curt Harris - Still has eight slots open for our club members to assist at the District Celebration as Sargent at Arms. This is a great way to contribute a few hours to your District, greeting fellow Rotarians and helping them find their way around the convention. You don't need to be registered for the convention to help. Just follow this Sign-up Genius Link: https://www.signupgenius.com/go/5080a4daca723a6f94-rotary

Jim Kreider - The Polio Plus Event at Tuscany Tavern last Sunday was a great success. Your Rotary International is the primary force behind the almost  eradication of this horrible, crippling, life threatening disease. It wasn't that long ago, in the 1980's, that 350,000 cases occurred yearly worldwide. Now, we are down to three countries where the disease is still active, and only 8 cases this year. When those three countries are safe for three year's running, the disease will be gone! If you weren't able to attend Sunday, and would like to add to the kitty, contact Jim Kreider jimk4182@gmail.com.
 
Don Unger - Presented a club flag given to us by Nuevo Mexico's Rotary Club. He recently visited the dynamic five member club and presented one of our flags to them. They have many great projects for such a small club and he plans to join them when staying in Mexico.
 
Don would also like to remind us the the Evergreen Rodeo is just around the corner, on Father's Day weekend, June 16th and 17th. It takes a whole passel of cowpokes and cowgirls to carry off this iconic Evergreen tradition. There are many types of jobs available. Contact Don or Marty Unger for more information http://don@advcredit.com, or 303-507-7062.

Curt Harris - Is planning another Kili climb in 2020. (Really folks, it's not that far away...Yikes!) You should let him know that you are interested. It is the adventure of a life time.

Matt Cormier - Principal of Wilmot Elementary, visited to thank our club for donating a "Buddy Bench." He feels that we did something simple that will have a large impact on kids. When a child feels left out, out of sorts, or doesn't have anyone to play with, they sit down on the Buddy Bench. This gives their schoolmates a chance to notice, reach out, and lend compassion and friendship.  Thank you Linda Lovin for championing this project. To find out more about the wonderful history of the "Buddy Bench," and the growing nationwide movement, go to http://buddybench.org/
