Odyssey of a Civil War Sabre
This Wednesday, 9/11,  following an introduction by Dave Stewart, Rotary Club of Fort Collins will hear from Brian Carroll, a retired FBI agent.  Tracing the provenance of a Civil War sabre in Wellington, Colorado, he discovered that its original owner was  a young soldier, Frederick R. Baker, who was selected to be a member of a cavalry unit assigned to be  body guard and escort for President Abraham Lincoln in Washington, D.C.  And this discovery by our speaker led to locating the soldier's current family, and a diary of historical significance, locally and nationally. This is a story of the odyssey of that Civil War sabre and its owner, Frederick R. Baker 
John Matsushima Steak Fry
On September 4, we met in the late afternoon at THE FARM at Lee Martinez Park for the annual John Matsushima Steak Fry in  place of our usual noon meeting. There was no formal meeting. President Rob Marschke welcomed all members and guests and thanked John Matsushima, his cooking cohorts, and all the other individuals who made the event such a success.Special thanks go out to the CSU Meat Judging Team, which catered the food.  The steaks and sides drew favorable comments from all. We were entertained by the music of “Yer Neighbors”, featuring our own Amy Brackenbury and her husband Lars, Del Benson, and Martin Limbird.
