The Pagosa Springs Rotary Club is a diverse group of engaged individuals participating through friendship and camaraderie in opportunities to serve our community and other communities around the world.
What a Busy Few Weeks!
First - some housekeeping matters:
  • If anyone has items that need to be returned to the storage unit - please bring them on Thursday
  • If anyone has the orange and the brown extension cords for the speakers and projector - please bring them on Thursday
  • The Bridge Club ladies believe we may have one of their card tables - it would have happened when we were cleaning up after the Installation Banquet.  If you have a card table - please bring it on Thursday
How About that Parade?????
For anyone who did not see JoAnn's email including the sweet note from Patty, it is provided again here.
Good morning,
Below is a thank you I received from your 2019 Grand Marshal of the 4th of July Parade. Our Patty is one amazing woman.
For those who were not able to be a part of the parade, you missed a great time. Your fellow Rotarians outdid themselves. Please thank them for their time and service when you see them.
I thank you for allowing me to represent you thru this transition with the Town. I have found that government thinking and service organization thinking is…different. However, the combination resulted in a terrific time for our community. We rolled up our sleeves, put our hearts into it and our club can continue to be proud of our efforts.

Begin forwarded message:
Dear One,
   Please share this with the Club  (I sent a note via the P.O. before the event, but this is "after").  Special thanks to Larry Parks and Bob Daniels---both treated me like a "Queen", something I am not used to.  Everything went very well from what I could see---a great crowd---and all filled my soul with great memories.   I wish I could throw a party for all, but I am a little old for that.  I am driving to Texas on the 10th for a family reunion---will be back early the following week.  Of course, I love having folks come by anytime.  Anyway, thank you for all that  love and please know it is returned 100%.  
The Installation Banquet
Outgoing officers were thanked, and incoming ones welcomed.  It was a special evening of looking back and looking forward at the same time!
International Committee News
David Smith would like to call for a meeting of the international committee on July 11 after our regular meeting to listen to a proposal by Father Kenny (Pagosa's Catholic Church). This might be a good project for a new global grant that will provide equipment for a new hospital that is being build in Nigeria.
He will also give an update regarding the project in Senegal and the new project in Niger!  He asked that I invite all those interested in the workings of these global grant projects to stay and participate !
Las Vegas Casino Night was a BLAST!
Last Friday presented a great opportunity to get out and gamble, dance, eat, drink and support the Rotary Club of Pagosa Springs!  More details of exactly HOW MUCH support will come soon!
The Rotary Club of Pagosa Springs so appreciates all the fine businesses that support our efforts all year long through business sponsorship.   We also would like to thank all of those that came out to enjoy the evening with us!  All the funds raised at this event will benefit the youth of our community through our many programs such as college scholarships, teacher mini-grants, the dictionary program, our student exchange programs and Rotary Youth Exchange.  Thank you Pagosa Springs!
