Atmospheric Research Supercomputer

This Wednesday the Rotary Club of Fort Collins hosts Gary New, the Operations Section Head for the Wyoming Supercomputing Center in Cheyenne, a part of the National Center for Atmospheric Research.  Gary has over 39 years experience in facilities related to healthcare and information technology, and served as the Assistant Project Engineer for the design and construction of the Supercomputer Center.

Eastside Park Rotary Service Project
On Saturday, October 19, 2019, the four Fort Collins Rotary Clubs came together to help start the renovation of the Eastside Community Park.  Fifteen Rotarians joined with ten community members and four City staff to remove an unused T-ball backstop and benches.  The Park needs revitalization to transform the area into a safe and meaningful community space.  The adjacent Laurel Elementary school went into ‘lock-out’ mode five times during the past school year because of unsafe and threatening behavior in the park. 

RCFC Teacher of the Month
This month we honored Kelsey Sutliff, a nine year veteran third grade teacher at Olander School.  She was introduced with great appreciation by Assistant Principal David Arnoff.  When Kelsey began to speak everyone present knew immediately that we had a dynamic teacher speaking directly to us, not reading a script, and connecting firmly with her audience.
Community Grant to Project Self Sufficiency
October 16, RCFC's Community Grants committee awarded a $3,000 education grant to Project Self Sufficiency to assist in their motivational interviewing training program.  This program is for the staff of Project Self sufficiency as well as staff from The Mathews house, Crossroads,  and Housing Catalyst.  John Kinnaird, PSS Program Director, accepted the grant award, presented by Community Grants Chair Kathy Nicol.
Rotary Takes Part in World Polio Day
Last week our speaker was Breakfast Rotary Club member, Krishna Murphy, MD.   He shared with us the role that Rotary has played to eradicate polio nearly world-wide, updated the present status of polio in the world  and outlined the strategies for future efforts. The timing of this presentation correlates with World Polio Day, October 24.
