Army & Air Force ROTC Programs
On May 15th, RCFC will host a Reserve Officer Training Corps (ROTC) presentation. The current Colorado State University Professor of Aerospace Studies, United States Air Force Colonel Gregg Johnson, and current Colorado State University Professor of Military Science, United States Army Lieutenant Colonel Matt Tillman, will connect to provide an overview of their respective ROTC programs. This will be at noon, at the Lincoln Center. Inspired by its Land-Grant heritage, Colorado State University is committed to excellence, setting the standard for public research universities in teaching, research, service, and extension for the benefit of the citizens of Colorado, the United States, and the world. ROTC on the Colorado State University campus has had a tradition of excellence for over 140 years. READ MORE...

The building was recently donated to Historic Larimer County and is currently being prepared to be opened to the public for the first time in decades. READ MORE...

The committee was requested by our BOD in large part because our leaders have been getting a lot of questions from members on giving, especially from our many new members. READ MORE...

Braver Angels Workshop
In this polarized time, we lack basic understanding of why people on the other side hold their beliefs. When we try to communicate across this gap, we often lack the skills for listening carefully, looking for common ground, and sharing our perspectives in ways that connect rather than create more misunderstanding. Learn to disagree better at the Braver Angles workshop on May 30 at the Senior Center.
