Dementia-Friendly Communities in Northern Colorado
According to the Mayo Clinic, dementia isn't a specific disease, but instead, describes a group of symptoms affecting memory, thinking and social abilities severely enough to interfere with daily functioning.  This week retired clinical psychologist Ross Lane introduces Cyndy Luzinski, an advanced practice nurse and dementia practitioner to share her own experience as a catalyst for building and sustaining "Dementia-Friendly Communities of Northern Colorado."
Cyndy's interest in dementia care escalated when her own dad developed dementia symptoms. This led her to discovering the Contented Dementia approach, a simple method which makes remarkable differences in the lives of those who use it.  Cyndy’s Dementia-Friendly Community initiative is now 21 months old.  
Cyndy Luzinski, MS, RN, CDP completed her undergraduate nursing degree at St. Olaf College in Northfield, MN, and her graduate nursing degree at University of Wisconsin in Madison.  Along with another advanced practice nurse and social worker, she developed and implemented what is still now, 20 years later, the UC Health Community Case Management program.
Cyndy and husband Craig Luzinski have 4 children (step-daughter, step-son, 2 daughters) and 4 grandchildren. Cyndy was recently designated one of the "Northern Colorado Superwomen" by the Coloradoan Mind and Body magazine.
Volunteer! Peach Festival 2017!
Hello Rotarians and Friends!!
We are in the home stretch run!  We need volunteers for the Peach Festival, NOW!!!!
In total, we need 153 more volunteer shifts to cover.  142 of the 153 are in the afternoon, so if we don’t fill those shifts there is a real risk that the revenue that our club will get for our projects is less, since we will have to shut down some of the revenue-generating booths (e.g., beer, wine, pie, cobbler, entrance admission, margaritas, etc.) or hire people to work the booths which will reduce or eliminate our revenue.
So, if you have already signed up for a shift, please consider staying another 3 hours and cover another shift.  If you have friends or family who can help, sign them up or send them the link shown below for them to register themselves.
Please don't plan on sticking around without signing up and expecting the volunteer tent to “tell you where to go”, though.  We need to know that the shifts are covered before the event in order to avoid either one of the above scenarios, which must be planned before the event.
So, don’t delay!  Use this link and register to volunteer!

The Rotary History Fellowship will meet immediately after the regular meeting in the foyer. Our topic will be: 'The Recent Storms of Information -- Mainstream Media, Side-stream Media, the Internet, Fake News and Real News." Everyone and all viewpoints are welcome.
Del Benson is looking for other fishermen to establish a fishing Fellowship.
Chuck Rutenberg "begged" for volunteers for the Peach Festival.  ( He almost went to his knees!)
Dan Ward has OSHER catalogs.  He urged members to sign up.  He further noted that a dozen of our members are teaching classes.
Ron Stoops thanked the 14 who helped with highway cleanup.  He reminded them they had earned a makeup for their work.  Marty Bachman then listed some of the finds:  1/2 of a license plate, a laptop, a urine sample cup, a driver's license, a dead deer, and some Hugo Morales business cards.  She thinks we should start a Top Ten Finds list.

Pick up (or retrieve online) this year's financial commitment form. Turn it in ASAP.
Jon Land from the Satellite Club urged everyone to buy tickets for their two-day event a month after the Peach Festival.  The competitive barbecue will be held at the Equine Center.  They also need volunteers for the event.
Lynne Baker, one of three co-chairs of the Centennial Committee, reported that much was being planned for our Centennial Year.  Culmination will be a dinner on August 1, 2018, at in the Stadium Club in the new CSU stadium.  Profits from sales of wreaths and flower baskets are helping to fund the activities.  She then announced that each member will be assessed $5 per quarter until our anniversary on the quarterly statement, as approved by our Board.
Stacy Plemmons asked for a volunteer to back up Erin Mounsey with production of the Rotogear and website content. Erin has had some life changes and will be taking a leave of absence shortly. The continuation of the resources is dependent upon your participation. 
Our club provides many thousands of hours of volunteer service in addition to annual giving to charitable projects. Our giving to charitable projects has not grown to keep up with inflation and growing community needs. The RCFC Legacy Fund has established as an endowment that will provide supplemental funds into the foreseeable future for humanitarian and educational programs in and around Fort Collins. Your contributions to the Legacy Fund are tax deductible and will assure “Service in Action Forever”.
