Rotary President Phyllis Hoffman presents a check to Cedaredge Police Chief Dan Sanders
 
At the August 6 meeting we were honored to present a check for $1572 to Cedaredge Police Chief Dan Sanders.  The proceeds from our Back the Badge event at 4 B's on August 3 will support "boots on the ground" needs of the department. Barb Breitnauer, 4 B's owner also joined us for lunch so we could thank her for donating the restaurant and the beer for the fundraiser.  The Cedaredge Rotary Foundation is also establishing a fund for the Cedaredge Police Department to encourage businesses in town to make donations to support our officers.  Cedaredge Tire has already committed a portion of their monthly profits to support the police.

Dan Tietz, Assistant Coach of the Cedaredge 5th - 8th Grade Girls Basketball Recreation League is transforming young girls into young ladies.  The travel team similar to AAU programs competes in tournaments around the state.  Dan knows that while he focuses on competitive basketball play his players gain more than rules knowledge and game strategy.

Due to the remodeling and construction at RJ's Steakhouse, Cedaredge Rotary will now be meeting at Creekside Café.  Just two miles north on Highway 65 ( 365 N Grand Mesa Drive), Creekside Café is on the right past the traffic light at Main Street in Cedaredge. Parking is available in the front for handicapped and on the side of the restaurant.  Creekside's owner Cody Nelson and Chef Jimmy Berardi are looking forward to hosting Rotary for our first meeting there on February 5.  We are so grateful to RJ's Steakhouse for all their service to Rotary and our community over the past years.  Our program for February 5 features our own Phil Ellsworth, Poet Laureate for Cedaredge and the 2018 Citizen of the Year.  Phil's music, poetry and stories are a special treat.  His program is titled "In the Memory Wing."

We were proud to have our first Student of the Month for the 2017 - 2018 School year.  Jade Gummo was our student.  She is a senior at Cedaredge High School and was born and raised right here in Delta County.  She is taking CNA courses through the community college and is looking forward to a career in nursing.  We all encouraged her and especially Phyllis who told her she would never have to look very hard for a job once she has completed her education in nursing.

STUDENT OF THE MONTH
Enjoying the Cedaredge High School students once a month at our weekly meeting has not only been fun but enlightening.  We were excited to have a student come and join us for lunch along with a teacher and sometimes their parents.  The achievements of these young people were totally "over the top".  The academic scores, the community involvement, sports activities and involvement in such clubs as FFA, National Honor Society and other opportunities to serve.

Throughout India and around the world, Rotary clubs are celebrating a major milestone: India has gone three years without a new case of polio. The last reported case was a two-year-old girl in West Bengal on 13 January 2011. To mark this historic triumph, Rotary clubs illuminated landmarks and iconic structures throughout the country with four simple but powerful words, "India is polio free."
 
The three-year achievement sets the stage for polio-free certification of the entire Southeast Asia region by the World Health Organization. The Indian government also plans to convene a polio summit in February to commemorate this victory in the global effort to eradicate polio.

What is it like taking a large team to Africa?  It has probably been one of the most rewarding experiences in my life. In mid February, I began leading Rotary members from all over the East Coast of the United States through Ghana. I’ve tried to give the team a warm Ghanaian welcome like I’ve received on my earlier trips. A large trip is a real blessing because each person sees Ghana and our work in a different way.

A highlight for the team was greeting the chief of Sagadugu. The team got excited about buying goats and food for children in the villages where I support eight churches. It was good to see the pastors of most of the eight churches, and I had to explain that we were just passing through on our way to Bolgatanga.

Music has been an important part of leading an ordinary life for students at the Music School for Children With Disabilities in Honor of Paul Harris in Lublin, Poland. Founded by Rotary members, the school serves 20 students with various disabilities, including Down syndrome, autism, and visual impairments. The Rotary Club of Lublin-Centrum-Maria Curie-Sklodowska has provided funding with help from Rotary Foundation Matching Grants and the Henryk Wieniawski Musical Society, which houses the school.
 
After their son Mateusz was born with underdeveloped eyes, Mariusz and Joanna Kania looked for ways to help him be active. When he showed an aptitude for music, they looked for a teacher and were thrilled to find the Paul Harris music school.

For years, Angalia Bianca had slept in abandoned buildings throughout Chicago. She stole. She did drugs. She spent time in and out of jail for forgery, theft, trespassing, and possession of narcotics. But after she landed in prison for the seventh time, something changed -- Bianca knew she wanted a better life. She just didn’t know how to make it happen.
 
After serving her time, Bianca sought help from a local homeless organization, A Safe Haven, and moved to its shelter in the Rogers Park neighborhood. Bianca followed the program closely -- she attended all the required meetings, passed drug tests, and volunteered at every opportunity.
