Upcoming Elections & New Voting Laws

On January 29th, Lloyd Thomas introduces Angela Myers, Larimer County Clerk and Recorder, to explain the recent changes in election laws.  Myers will encourage lively audience participation on matters that directly affect Rotarians and our interaction with county government.  Angela reports that “There are four Larimer County elections on the horizon! You need to hear about the what’s and how’s!” 

Purple Pins For Polio Success!!
RCFC's Sharyn Salmen and Foothill's Ruth Lutes did an amazing job organizing and running our annual Quad Club Purple Pins for Polio fundraising event, held on January 26th at Chipper's Lanes, Horsetooth   Rumors are the event raised locally over $12,000, and with the Gates Foundation match, will produce over $36,000 to help eradicate polio.  Official details will be shared when available.  
After reaching a worldwide low in 2017 of only 22 'wild' polio virus cases, infections increased 6-fold in 2019 to 125 cases.  Still only two countries saw infections - Afghanistan and Pakistan - although we are all only one plane ride away from exposure.  We still have work to do!     
$3000 Community Grant to Adoptive Parents
Community Grants Committee Chair Kathy Nicol presented a check for $3000 to Foster and Adoptive Families Of Larimer County.  The money will be directed to health and wellness programming.
U.S. Currency: History, Art and Symbolism

Last week, RCFC member and polymath, Bob Meroney, debuted his talk - US Currency: History, Art and Symbolism. Seems that many of our memorable words and sayings originate because of our “love” of money – from “Greenback” to “Banned in Boston”.  Bob's talk was supported by a display of old and replica coins and paper money on a nearby table.
