JOHNSTOWN-MILLIKEN ROTARY CLUB

The Johnstown/Milliken Rotary Club met at 7 a.m. in Johnson’s Corner for its Sept. 5 meeting.

Roy Hucke gave the invocation, and Club President Jerry Dunn led the club in the Pledge of Allegiance and the Four-Way-Test.
Guests included Robert Polan, Madison Buhre, and Jake McCarthy.

The club is kicking off this year’s Bedtime Reading Program at 6:30 p.m. next Thursday (Sept. 19) at the Milliken Police Department. This month’s reading will feature a Colorado Eagles hockey player who will read to the children and be available for questions and pictures. Domino’s Pizza of Johnstown will provide pizza. Ken Grack Mobile RV Repair will provide cookies and milk. This event is free and is geared toward pre-school to third grade.

Club member Dennis Reed said the Rotarians, on Sept. 28, would be out along Colorado Highway 60 picking up trash. Suggestions were given as to how to make the function more fun, including the most popular beverage container found, the most interesting item found, or the silliest hat worn.

This week’s program was presented by Buhre and McCarthy, students at Roosevelt High School, who were both recipients of the Rotary Youth Leadership Award (RYLA). The award provides sponsorship to the annual RYLA leadership camp held each summer in Estes Park.

They shared their experiences from this year’s camp and brought along some very exciting news as well. Buhre announced she has organized a local Interact Club. Interact is part of the Rotary family of service organizations and is geared toward youth ages 12-18 who want to have a positive impact on their community. The formation of an Interact club was one of President Dunn’s goals for the year, and he said it best when he remarked, “This is a dream come true.”

The Johnstown/Milliken Rotary Club meets 7 a.m. each Thursday at Johnson’s Corner. The board of directors meets 6:30 p.m. on the second Monday of the month at the Milliken Police Department, 1201 Broad.

Anyone interested in becoming a member should contact Jordan Jemiola at (720) 261-0229, or jemiola.jordan @gmail.com, or visit the club’s Facebook page at www.face book.com/jmrotary.

Cheerful Learners

Cheerful Learners met at the home of Virginia Morris on May 20. Jean Hoffman served as her co-hostess. The meeting was opened by Barbara Sloan, president, with the pledge to the flag and the club collect.

Ruth Nelson, program chairman for this meeting, introduced Pat Betz from the Glenn A. Jones Library. She told of the summer reading program planned for this year. Its theme is “Dig into Reading.” Last summer they had 1,500 kids in the program. It is divided into three levels of reading. She also explained some of the new things to come and explained how we were related to the High Plains Library District.

Twelve members responded to roll call with their plans for summer. The treasury balance was given. A letter from the Weld County Fair Board asked for $80 to be used as prizes. This is $5 higher than normal. The group voted to add the $5 to our regular amount. They also voted to give $50 to the summer reading program. This also carried.

It was announced former member Ruby Pixler had passed away.

Next meeting (June 17) will be the salad luncheon at the home of Kelly Portz, with Anne Thomas serving as her co-hostess. Members are reminded this is when we give our secret sisters a birthday gift.

The July picnic will be held July 15 at 4 p.m. at the home of Ann Hughes.
