Lost Highways: Dispatches from the Shadows of the Rocky Mountains
This Wednesday noon, June 15th, the Zoom meeting of the Rotary Club of Fort Collins features a presentation from Noel Black, the senior editor and host of the documentary podcast of the History Colorado Center in Denver.  Following his introduction by Dave Stewart, our guest will  share audio examples of several episodes of the podcast  and discuss some of the challenges of bringing the past to life in audio for the present, and some of the tricks he’s used to make it happen.  
RECAP: Shaping Fort Collins’ Operations and Long-Term Vision
Last week at noon, our speaker was Claudia Menendez, who serves as Fort Collins’ first “chief” diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) officer. Her personal journey began in El Salvador. Along the way, she collected a BA in Latin American studies, an MA in Equity and Cultural Diversity and worked in related fields in PSD preparing her for this newly created job in our favorite city. 
Investment fellowship
Following the Wednesday meeting on Zoom, the Investment Fellowship will meet. The discussion will be on the book, “The Psychology of Money”, by Morgan Housel.

Rotary Golf Classic
The Rotary Golf Classic, presented by the Rotary Club of Fort Collins, will be on September 23rd at Collindale. It will be a fall fundraiser for our club to benefit Habitat for Humanity. We are currently aiming to sell 18 corporate sponsorships at $1,000 each, which will include a foursome and sponsorship, and we are attempting to limit the number of industries represented to encourage more networking and connection with people outside of your network!
