Lots of fun was had at our holiday party on January  26th. 
Leo Faccenda, a distiller at Olk Elk Distillery in Fort Collins, Colorado (son of president Ron Faccenda), did a great time introducing and walking us through the making of the Maple Lemon RotoCo - a cocktail he created especially for Rotary.  Click HERE to watch the video and see how it's done!
An unusual but very fun Yankee Swap ensued, with not a lot of cut-throat swapping but some really fun (and delicious) gifts exchanged.

Bring family and friends (over 10 years of age). Our group is capped at 8 spaces so she will need to know ASAP if we can meet our commitment within our club, or if she will have to offer up spaces to others outside of the Club in order to ensure that we meet our commitment! It seems like November 7th is a long way off but - Saturday slots are hard to come by so she grabbed this one!!
Let Susan know ASAP if you are able to help.

Please join us on Tuesday, September 15th at noon for our "Focus on Food Insecurity" presentations.

Join us as we welcome world renowned tenor John MacMaster to our meeting.

John has had a career spanning the globe, and will tell us about this unusual career.Since his astonishing portrayal of Canio in PAGLIACCI at Glimmerglass Opera, John Mac Master has been in demand at the highest international level for the dramatic tenor repertoire. Performances and recording projects have included Florestan in FIDELIO with Sir Colin Davis in London, Beethoven’s Symphony No. 9 with Sir Bernard Haitink (both with the London Symphony Orchestra) and his debut at Dresden’s Semper Oper as Calaf in TURANDOT conducted by Fabio Luisi. Mr. Mac Master’s acclaimed Metropolitan Opera debut came as Canio in PAGLIACCI in performances that included the Saturday Afternoon ‘Live from the Met’ radio broadcast. Of particular note was his assumption of the role of Tristan in TRISTAN UND ISOLDE for Welsh National Opera conducted by Mark Wigglesworth and a subsequent outing at the Met in this demanding role, with Levine in the pit.

Join us on Tuesday, July 28th at noon to hear Chrissie Lawson (a member of the Rotary Club of Camberley, England) talk about her work for the Health Research Authority, which is part of the National Health Service in the UK. HRA provide an Ethics service so that research proposals can be reviewed by an Ethics committee.

Members will get the link from President Ron. Others are VERY welcome to join us! Email for the Zoom link!
