On July 31st, RCFC will host Pat Gannon, Director of Professional and Noncredit Programs, at CSU.  Following an introduction by Bob Lawrence, our speaker plans to share the background and operations of the adult education program at Colorado State including OSHER.  Pat has spread her passion for adult education at many gatherings, including the Loveland Rotary Club this past June.
Peace Efforts in Burundi
July 24, Bill Timpson gave an update on the Burundi peace/reconciliation efforts that began in 2016 in Ngozi.  The local community built a Peace Wall and the Rotary Club initiated a project to bring clean water into the community.  Efforts are now being made to introduce the peace curriculum into the schools and churches.
Brown Paper Pages; A Trip to Japan; A Soldier's Diary
On July 24, MaryLou Mohon Smith told us about her quest to track down the family of a Japanese casualty at the South Pacific battle for Tarawa during World War II.  Her uncle, Adrian Mohon, was on the island to assist in repair of the infrastructure for air operations when his unit heard noise coming from a nearby pillbox.  After using hand grenades, her uncle entered the box and found on one of the soldiers a “book” of rough brown paper sheets with photos and comments in Japanese.  The uncle kept the “book” until giving it to MaryLou because she showed interest.
