$4000 Youth Community Grant Awarded
Community Grants Committee Chair Kathy Nicol announced a $4,000 Youth Grant to Charis Youth Ranch.  Accepting the award were Michelle Cornwall and Nicole Oleski.  Charis Youth Ranch's mission is to connect rescued horses with at-risk youth to provide Equine Assisted Learning and facilitate an experiential learning environment, encouraging healing for kids who may not benefit from traditional forms of therapy.  Our grant will support their 2019 summer Equine Adventure Program for youth ages 5-12.  Primary funding for community grants comes through the generosity of RCFC Members.  Don't forget to turn in your Financial Commitment Form.
RCFC Citizens of the West!
Rotarian Dave Stewart submitted this photo of the plaque honoring those named Citizen of the West by the National Western Stock Show.  Note that of the 22 names listed (including US Supreme Court Justice Byron White), two are RCFC members.  Johnny Matsushima was honored in 2013, and Tony Frank was honored in 2018!  
RCFC's Annual Changing of the Guard
This week Past President Jeanne Fangman will preside over RCFC's annual Changing of the Guard, installing (effective July 1) Dr. Rob Marschke as President, Del Benson as President Elect, and 2018-19 President Steve Laine as Past President.  Kathy Hawkins will be installed as Treasurer, Cindy DeGroot as Secretary, and Marty Bachman and John Trone will become new board members.    
Fort Collins Habitat for Humanity and The Harmony Cottages
Last week our speakers were Kristin Candella, CEO of Fort Collins Habitat for Humanity and Bruce Hendee, project manager, describing a unique “Habitat” project under construction at the SE corner of Taft Hill and Harmony Roads. The introduction was by Mara Johnson, the Philanthropy Director at Habitat.
Mara introduced the two main speakers by way of a clever quiz comparing Rotary and “Habitat”. Kristan described the acquisition of the site by Habitat, it’s transfer to a new management company, Harmony Limited, LLC and the identification of the tasks involved in the initial development of this site. She briefly described Habitat’s multiple roles - homebuilder, mortgage lender and retail store.
