Homeward Alliance - Addressing Homelessness
On June 9th, the Executive Director of Homeward Alliance, David Rout, and his Development Director, Pam Brewer, join RCFC for our regular meeting on Zoom.  This Fort Collins non-profit is a key resource in addressing the needs of persons going through homelessness, and has received grants from our club.  Dr. Don Jorgensen, will introduce our guests, Dave and Pam, who will outline the main work the agency performs, and new developments in plans to house and assist the homeless.

RCFC Returns (Partially) to In-Person Meetings
President Del Benson announced the return of in-person Noon Fellowship meetings every-other week, starting June 30.  The Evening Group has already returned to in-person meetings.  To attend the June 30 meeting in-person, members will need to register via Eventbrite (details coming).  'Other' weeks (not-in-person) will be Zoom-only meetings.   
According to President Del, the Food and Venue committee proposed and the board accepted a "trial cadence" for RY Q1, July through September.  Starting with the Changing of the Guard June 30, RCFC will meet every-other Wednesday at noon, at the Lincoln Center Columbine Room (June 30, July 14 and 28, August 11 and 25 and September 8 and 22).  Near the end of the experiment, the board intends to gather feedback on whether to continue with an every-other-week in-person cadence beyond Q1.  
According to the Food and Venue Committee, reasons for this experiment are:
  • less financial exposure coming out of pandemic.
  • trial meetings with Lincoln Center to see if good permanent home.
  • issues with Catering services
  • good test whether this might be a good permanent cadence
Board Member Rajiv Mehta is leading an initiative to fund and acquire the equipment necessary to allow all in-person meetings to also be viewed via Zoom - "hybrid" meetings.  
Cornerstone Stories - Carl Maxey
For the first installment of the new “Cornerstone Stories” series of programs (focusing on local individuals who are “cornerstones” of our community), RCFC member Bill West interviewed local businessman and RCFC member Carl Maxey, Vice President and Western Region General Manager of MGS, the “parent company” of the local Maxey companies.  Bill started by pointing out that Carl is a leader, not only in the Maxey companies, but also in a number of local, state, and national business organizations as well as in his church. 
President Del's Priorities and Plans
During his first meeting as President, Del Benson outlined his priorities and thoughts for RY 2020-21.  He touched on the challenges of declining noon membership and the resultant reduction in income and charitable pledges to support our service mission.  Del then outlined his priorities and a "U+2" Time, Talent and Treasure Challenge for every member:  
  • Bring in two new members
  • Double contributions to Rotary funding needs
  • Help on two funding initiatives
  • Give time to two additional service projects
  • Organize new projects and outcomes
  • Attend two more meetings every quarter
  • Combine categories engaging U+2 and have twice the fun and accomplishments
