Rotary Club of Broomfield Crossing honored for growth
Over the weekend of May 2nd – 4th the Rotary Club of Broomfield Crossing was honored with two membership awards at the District Conference held in Denver, Colorado. Mike Daniels, President of Broomfield Crossing, accepted an award for Recognition of Membership Development Initiatives and an award for Best Club Growth with Broomfield Crossing growing over 109% in the past year.
 
The Rotary Club employed a number of strategies and changes in attitude to attract and retain membership, including: changing meeting location and lowering dues, focusing on visitors, constantly looking for those that would make good Rotarians, initiating 5th Tuesday Parties to involve families and friends in the club, seeking diversity in the club, continually emphasizing Service Above Self in everything we do, engaging membership, marketing to the community, and making sure everyone is always welcome at the Rotary Club of Broomfield Crossing. All of these ideas combined have led to the continued success and growth of the club.
 
Congratulations to the Rotary Club of Broomfield Crossing and President Mike Daniels for these awards.
The Rotary Club of Broomfield Crossing meets at iPie at 145 Nickel St in Broomfield every Tuesday at 7:10AM. Please join us for a special breakfast pie and a great meeting with fellowship, sharing, and a guest speaker. If you have a desire to promote Service Above Self then you could make a difference as a Rotarian.

Santa Visits a Success
We would like to give a big “Thank You” to each person who helped with the Santa Visits this week. A special thanks to Pete Nims who insisted on being at every visit. He was a great help. As in past years, each event went very smoothly and the kids all ended their visit with Santa with a twinkle in their eye, except for a few tears from the wee little ones as usual. Each event was a success and special in its own way. We were scheduled to visit with over 250 kids, but the cold weather kept a few from seeing Santa.

At the HHS party on Thursday night, we had 58 children and teens visit Santa to receive their sack of candy and gift cards. The children had a blast with all the games, eating Pizza and a great time dancing with the dancers. We received a number of thank you letters from the guests attending the HHS session. I will bring them to the Rotary meeting on Tuesday so all can read them.

The visit to “Broomfield Skilled Nursing and Rehabilitation Center” on Friday morning was especially touching this year. A few tears from seniors, as they reminisced past memories, prompted moist eyes of emotion from Rotarians, including me. A special “Thank You” to Carolyn Crouse for leading us again this year in “Festive Christmas Carols” as we followed Santa from room to room as he gave a Christmas bear to each senior.

F.R.I.E.N.D.S. has a new location on 119th and Saulsbury St. which is close to their original house. The new building provides lots of room and amenities for the adults with developmental disabilities. They now have 36 members ages 20 to 54. They have been in their new facility since the end of October. The entire group was all excited to see Santa and excited to show off their presents from Santa.

Santa sends his Christmas Greetings and wishes you all a “Merry Christmas.”
 
We should all be very proud of our Club and the good we bring to the Broomfield Community.
 
And a Very Special Thanks to Larry Hendershot for organizing.

Thanks again for all your support.

2013 Halloween Party

Members, guests and friends of Rotary Club of Broomfield Crossing attended a Halloween Party on Tuesday, Oct 29th at the home of Marie Rowe. Everyone brought a food to share and wore costumes, and I'm pretty sure a good time was had by all. This party was part of our 5th Tuesday Celebrations  -  instead of our regular Tuesday morning meeting, on the 5th Tuesday we hold a FUN event in the evening where we can have guests and enjoy fellowship. Look for information on future 5th Tuesday Celebrations  ...  and a BIG THANKS to Marie for hosting the party.

CROP Walk in Broomfield

 

Members of Rotary Club of Broomfield Crossing participated in and contributed $'s to the Broomfield community CROP Walk on Sunday, Oct 6th.

CROP (Christian Rural Overseas Program) Hunger Walks are community-wide events sponsored by Church World Service and organized by local congregations or groups to raise funds to end hunger at home and around the world. With its inception in 1969, CROP Hunger Walks are "viewed by many as the granddaddy of charity walks," notes the Los Angeles Times (Oct. 26, 2009).

CROP Hunger Walks help to support the overall ministry of Church World Service, especially grassroots, hunger-fighting development efforts around the world. In addition, each local CROP Hunger Walk can choose to return up to 25 percent of the funds it raises to hunger-fighting programs in its own community. CROP Hunger Walks help to provide food and water, as well as resources that empower people to meet their own needs. From seeds and tools, to wells and water systems, to technical training and micro-enterprise loans, the key is people working together to identify their own development priorities, their strengths and their needs--something CWS has learned through some 64 years of working in partnership around the world.

The Rotary Club of Broomfield Crossing held its 1st Annual Triple C Bike Ride on May 11th 2013

Image

Riders joined us on Saturday, May 11th, 2013 for the 1st Annual Triple C Bike Ride. The Colorado Coal Century or “Triple C” Bike Ride was put on by passionate Rotarians from the Rotary Club of Broomfield Crossing along with premium sponsors Infinitus PIE and Golden Bear Bikes to create this one of a kind early season century trainer to get cyclists ready for summer riding season and raise money for our Rotary Club and the Second Wind Fund of Boulder and Broomfield Counties www.swfbc.org, a critical teen suicide prevention program. Other sponsors included: John Rowe, Swan Ink, Broomfield Auto Center, Old Style Sausage, and TopTrack, LLC.

The scenic route was carefully selected with the help of some avid cyclists, following the historic northern Colorado coal seam that runs from Marshall in the southwest to the Dacono, Frederick Firestone townships in the northeast. It was a 104.3 mile ride, had a relatively low 2185 feet of elevation gain. Starting at Infinitus PIE in Broomfield, heading northeast and meander through beautiful farm country to the tri cities of Dacono, Frederick and Firestone, swinging back through Berthoud, Longmont, Niwot, Gunbarrel, Boulder, Marshall, Superior, ride the "Mini Wall” and head back to Infinitus PIE for tasty post ride iPIE’s, beers, and festivities.

We look forward to hosting this ride again next spring and for many years to come. Please watch for announcements on this web site and in future publications.

Think your dog is Fast? Think they are a Champion? PROVE IT!!!

Join us for the first annual "DOGS FOR A CAUSE" race.

This is a fun fundraiser that our club jumped behind.  Not only because we love and support Broomfield Days, but because we thought our furry little friends would love to come out, meet new friends, race and do it all for a good cause.  The proceeds from this race will go to help fund Broomfield Crossing Rotary's charitable efforts.

Qi Liao Presentation at Aug 20th Club Meeting
Qi LiaoThis morning we were given a presentation by Qi Liao, our Rotary Young Leadership Award (RYLA) candidate for this summer. Qi explained how much she enjoyed the leadership events at the camp and how she built strong friendships among the RYL...A candidates in the area. She was animated and enthusiastic as she explained how she had overcome her typical shyness to emerge in leadership role over the course of six short days. Excellent presentation, Qi, and we were proud to sponsor an activity that clearly helped to develop the next generation of leaders such as yourself!

1st Annual Triple C Bike Ride

First Annual Triple C Bike Ride

7AM May 11th 2013

 

Ride

Please join us for a rollicking day of riding and fun on the first annual Colorado Coal Century or "Triple C" Bike Ride.  Passionate Rotarians from the Rotary Club of Broomfield Crossing are joining forces with Infinitus PIE, Golden Bear Bikes, and our other sponsors to create this one of a kind early season century trainer to get cyclists ready for summer riding season and raise money for our Rotary Club and the Second Wind Fund of Boulder and Broomfield Counties, a critical teen suicide prevention program.

Causes

The Rotary Club of Broomfield Crossing is sponsoring this ride to raise funds for the Second Wind Fund of Boulder County (www.swfbc.org) and our charitable causes including our international youth exchange program, summer sponsorship of kids in the Young Rotary Youth Leadership Awards program (http://www.rmryla.org/) and the annual Santa Eddy Christmas party with Broomfield County Health and Human Services. We recognize that mental health issues need special attention in our community and are committed as a club to providing special support for these programs in Broomfield County.

 

Second Wind Fund of Boulder County is a non-profit organization whose mission is to provide free counseling services to at risk youth in Boulder County.  This event is also designed as a remembrance of those we’ve lost to suicide and a celebration of all who choose life!

 

Route

The carefully planned Triple C ride is an early season trainer for the century ride enthusiast. Our scenic route was carefully selected with the help of some avid cyclists and one that mirrors the historic northern Colorado coal seam that runs from Marshall in the southwest to the Dacono, Frederick Firestone townships in the northeast.

It is a 104.3 mile ride, has a relatively low 2185 feet of elevation gain. Starting at Infinitus PIE in Broomfield, we head northeast and meander through beautiful farm country to the tri cities of Dacono, Frederick and Firestone.  There we swing back through Berthoud, Longmont, Niwot, Gunbarrel, Boulder, Marshall, Superior, ride the "Mini Wall” and head back to Infinitus PIE for tasty post ride iPIE’s, beers, and festivities. See the route map at http://www.mapmyride.com/routes/view/182449786 for more detailed information.

 

Why Triple C? 

We want to remember the historic northern Colorado coal seam while honoring the miners and mining companies that developed our area.  King Coal has always and continues to play a critical role in all aspects of the American economy and the long forgotten Northern Colorado Coal seam was the early lynchpin of development for the northwest Denver metropolitan area.  We want to provide a context for constructive conversation about America and her energy future.

 

Ride Details

The first annual Triple C rain or shine ride is a non supported ride; there will not be any official aid stations.  We have made arrangements for riders to use facilities with businesses along the route and will be running two sag vehicles and support riders along the route.  There is a 50 rider limit.

 

The ride starts at iPIE, 245 Nickel Street in Broomfield at 7 AM on May 11th and has a $65 entry fee. 

 

All riders receive a commemorative first annual Triple C shirt, a tasty Infinitus PIE at the end of the ride, and the knowledge that they helped two outstanding organizations making a substantial difference in our communities.

 

Sponsors

Infinitus PIE, Golden Bear, the Second Wind Fund of Boulder County and the Rotary Club of Broomfield Crossing are our current sponsors. More to follow.

 

Sign Up

To sign up for the ride, please download the brochure and waiver form and bring them to Infinitus Pie at 145 Nickel Street or Golden Bear Bikes at 290 Nickel Street in Broomfield, CO.
