An invite from PSR President Scott Holzschuh
Happy Thursday! Thought I’d get your reminder out early this week as Winefest comes upon us all and we get into our weekend mode. Looks like the weather will hold up a bit for us and it should be a fantastic weekend. Come on down to join in the beauty and splendor of the fall as we celebrate grapes and their many varieties artfully crafted, live music, and tasty treats.
It was great to hear from Clyde and Paulette Church Tuesday. We are blessed to have such a passionate District Governor and Paulette matches Clyde’s commitment to Rotary and the true spirit of service above self. If you’ve never seen the map of our district take a look at the below link. They are putting a lot of miles on that truck this summer as they visit every single club in the district. Clyde continues working on projects and reports from their various campsites, amazing guy… It was terrific having them there to announce our three district matched grants as well. The magic of Rotary will be evident to many as we turn our $2,250 into that $9,000 worth of outreach. Thanks to all of you who make this possible with your continued support of our fund raising efforts and projects.
We have a special guest speaker lined up for this Tuesday that you won’t want to miss. Tim Foster has been at the helm of Colorado Mesa University since March, 2004. Over the past 10 years the school, which was founded in 1925 as a Junior College with 39 students has exploded into a University with over 9,300 students on 86 acres of ever expanding classrooms, student activity centers, and residence halls. CMU is a crown jewel in the valley we live and work in. Come hear about what’s going on and how Tim sees CMU’s expansion into agriculturally related programs and what he’s hoping for in the years ahead. Feel free to wear the maroon, white, and gold!
With you in serving others above self as we make room for… just one more.
