Announcements for the Week of October 22nd, 2021
Here's Everything You Need to Know...
 
We had two Pause for the Cause announcements this week:
First was from Ron Larson and Cindi Sahli.  They spoke to us about our own Evergreen Rotary Foundation whose purpose it is to receive, raise and distribute funds to organizations in the community that we support.  Please consider becoming a recurring member.  Just go to the Club Website, click about us and the click on the Evergreen Rotary Foundation.  You can then make a one time donation or become a recurring member.  Please use the link here to access the Colorado Gives Website.
 
Soldier Backpacks - Gail Sharp once again reminded us of the backpacks project sponsored by Tall Grass.  The backpacks will go to homeless veterans in the Denver area.  Empty backpacks are available in the back of the room.  Pick one up and fill it with the items on the list.  Please include only the items on the list, do not improvise.  You can drop them off at WildGame.  Right now we have enough for about 50 bags.  Goal is 100.  There are 650 homeless Vets in Denver.  Also, please fill out a "thank you" card so we can put those in the bags.  Let's thank them for their service.
 
Peace is - Bob Rose showed us snippets of a Video produced by Rotary International regarding the activities of their Peace initiative linked to Rotary's 6 Areas of Service.  Our Club has decided to launch a Peace Committee with Bob heading up that effort.  Anyone within the Club that has an interest, please contact Bob.
 
On October 28th, there will be a Benefit at the Little Bear supporting out local Library.  Tickets are $20 in advance and $25 at the door.  Costumes are encouraged.
 
Mardi Gras - Doug Turner is again chairing our annual fundraiser, Mardi Gras.  It will be on February 18, at the WildGame.   Cost is $35 general admission or $70 with a fajita and jumbalaya bar.  There will also be a cash bar.  Music again will be by Tunisia.  Attendance will be limited to 300 persons.  We got our first sponsorship check today for Two Thousand thanks to John Wingate.  The goal is Ten Thousand.
 
Doug is putting together a video compilation of Rotary projects the event is supporting.  He is capturing "pause for the cause" presentations as well as other videos of projects such as Imagination Library, Rotary Wildfire Ready.
