We were very excited to induct 3 new members into our Club at this morning's meeting. Shown pictured (l-r) are Carol Scolari, Chris Kassel, Jeff Plomer with club president Jeff Jones doing the presenting. We look forward to having Carol, Chris and Jeff involved in all of our activities.

Everyone had a great time last night at our Santa Sack Stuffing Party in preparation for next week’s visits by Father Christmas to kids and adults to help spread some cheer during this most important part of the year. We will be hosting a party for a Military Police Battalion and their families, visiting a preschool and before/after school program, hosting a party in conjunction with Broomfield Health & Human Services for foster children & their families, caroling & distributing stuffed bears for patients at Broomfield Skilled Nursing, and helping with gift distribution at F.R.I.E.N.D.S. of Broomfield.  We would especially like to thank Marie Rowe for hosting the party again this year. Merry Christmas to All!

Tuesday, Oct 17th we had the pleasure of inducting 3 new members to our club - Michael Blackwood, Anne Shaw & Connor Winter - and as an added bonus our District Governor Abbas Rajabi and Area Governor Deborah Kelly were in attendance. A Great Morning!
A special thanks to Gerry Case for taking photos.
City Beautification Project: New trees lining the north of Broomfield High School on Miramonte
In the summer of 2009, Marv Eakes, a Broomfield High School neighbor and long-time Booster, had a vision for improving the landscape near Broomfield High School. He noticed that for many years, the sidewalk north of the high school - where he often took his walks – was more of a “dandelion nursery” and lay barren, flat and uninteresting compared to other walkways in the city. He envisioned that one day trees could line this sidewalk, providing shade and a more pleasing atmosphere for those passing through the area. There were many challenges, chief among them getting water to the area and identifying staff to maintain the trees once planted. Marv began by working with local leaders and charity organizations to see if there was some way to collectively improve the property.
Thus began a seven-year project to accomplish his vision. Conversations with BHS alums, service clubs and BVSD officials elicited reactions ranging from encouraging words to “the budget is too tight”.  Marv called and spoke with BHS administration, the City of Broomfield, the administration of the Boulder Valley School District, members of both Broomfield Rotary Clubs and the BHS Boosters. Over a dozen officials were contacted about the project until 2016, when he was able to supplement his own person donation with funding from the Broomfield Crossing Rotary Club, BVSD and the BHS Booster Club. BVSD Maintenance Coordinator Frank Martinez was instrumental in working Marv and the other staff and funders to see the project through to its completion. BHS assisted by bringing water to the area and agreeing to maintain the trees. After the trees were initially planted, vandals tore branches off the new trees but BHS Principal Ginger Ramsey had them quickly replaced, saying, “we will not let people like that win.”
Today, the beautiful tree-lined walkway is once again thriving and growing. Marv looks at the realization of his vision and is very happy with the project, “I’m very grateful to Frank Martinez, the Broomfield Crossing Rotary Club, BHS and its supporters.” Jeff Jones, President of the Broomfield Crossing Rotary Club says of the project: “Rotary is always happy to help improve our community and this was a great project toward that goal.” As time passes, the area will become even more beautiful as the trees grow and become a larger part of the landscape there.
Thanks to all of the Rotary Members that attended the ribbon cutting this week.

The Broomfield Crossing Rotary Club honored 5th grader Stella Hostetter as the Emerald Elementary School "Citizen of the Month" at a March 18 presentation at the school's monthly assembly.  Stella was nominated for the award by her teachers, Melissa Tingley and Carrie Troxel, for her fundraising efforts on behalf of another local child who has had a serious illness and is fighting for life after having severe neurological damage as a result of the illness.  Stella has raised over $400 and also used her own birthday money to add to the fundraiser.

Rotary President Gary McKee, who noted that Stella's effort exemplifies Rotary's motto "Service Above Self," presented the award and a gift certificate to Barnes & Noble Books to Stella to honor her efforts.

On December 1st, members of the Rotary Club of Broomfield Crossing began a busy week throwing their annual Christmas bash for children and senior citizens in our Broomfield Community. San...ta took a special break from his toy making with the elves at his North Pole workshop to help the Rotarians get an early start on the Christmas celebration. With his support and participation, again this year we visited children and seniors over a three-day period.

As is the annual tradition, the Rotarians hosted a special event Thursday evening for the foster families served by Broomfield’s Health and Human Services (HHS). Each of the children had a visit with Santa, and afterwards one could see twinkles in their eyes, except for a tear here and there from the wee little ones. After the Santa visit, the families enjoyed pizza while the kids were active playing games and receiving a sack of candy including a special gift certificate. Miss Heidi Thomas came with dancers from the Dance Arts Studio to provide the evening’s entertainment. And for the finale, children were invited to join the dancers and test their dancing skills. It was a great evening for all.

Santa visited the Salvation Army after-school program where, to wonderment in the eyes of the little ones, sacks of candy were distributed to the children. In addition, Santa and the Rotarians handed out gifts provided by F.R.I.E.N.D.S. of Broomfield to their program participants.

Finally, the Rotarians and Santa came away with many fond memories of raising spirits by singing Christmas Carols with the seniors at the Broomfield Skilled Nursing and Rehabilitation Center.

The Rotarians send out a big “Thank You” to financial donors for their generous contributions, to “Hammond’s Candies” for the donation of their signature candy canes, and to Jerry Clark for making and donating small wooden cars that were included in the sacks of goodies.

...and thanks to all Rotarians at Broomfield Crossing for making this year so successful.
We welcome visitors to our club at any of our meetings. Please feel free to show up and enjoy food and fellowship with our club members.
All are welcome at Broomfield Crossing Rotary Club.
