President Kevin Nichols welcomed all to the January 3, 2017, meeting of the Rotary Club of Golden at 7:15 am with an invocation and the Pledge of Allegiance.  The 4-Way Test was postponed until the induction of new members.
  1. Linda Diederichsen announced a Youth Service Committee meeting following next week’s club meeting.
  2. Jerry Lovejoy reminded members that the EIB committee meeting will be this Thursday, 7:30 in Pat Madison’s office
  3. Peggy Halderman asked all members who want a new polo shirt with the updated logo should sign up on the order sheet that is going around.
What is the most worldwide use of cow hides?  To cover the cows!
  1. Colleen Jorgensen gave a happy buck in celebration of walking without a cane for next 3 weeks (till her next knee surgery)!
  2. George Mitchell announced that Mines Men’s Basket Ball have an 11/3 season thus far.  Looking great.
  3. Linda Diederichsen announced her deep love for her husband.  When her vacuum finally appeared to “die,” she was thrilled with the prospect of getting a new version that actually picks up pet hair.  Then HE fixed it.  Next, over Christmas her washer and dryer went on the blink.  Again, thrilled with the possibility of getting new machines, her hopes were dashed when he fixed the washing machine.  She got a consolation prize of a new dryer, which is on its way. 
  4. Russ Sindt gave a happy buck and asked: Is there anyone here whose alma mater did NOT play a bowl game this past weekend?  After all, there were only 42 bowl games! Seems like Michelle Barnes did was the only one with that privilege!
  5. Jim Halderman announced that we’re about to go into the 3rd quarter and that he has his “square” with him in case anyone would like to pay their dues with a credit card!
John Hermanussen’s number was called, but, sadly, he didn’t pull the right marble.  He did get an eyeglass cleaner or cell-phone “poncho” as a consolation prize!
President Kevin Nichols welcomed all to the December 20, 2016, meeting of the Rotary Club of Golden at 7:15 am with an invocation and the Pledge of Allegiance.  The 4-Way Test was postponed until the induction of new members.
  1. Mic DeMin, former Rotarian with Coal Creek Rotary in early 2000’s who, after business and family time, is looking to return to Rotary.  Mic has a membership application pending before Golden Rotary.
  1. Russ Sindt announced that a meeting of the golf committee would follow the club meeting.
  2. Rita Smith thanked everyone who showed up on Saturday for the Holiday Food Box Project.  Also, thanks to all who helped raise $3,355 (to date!) in sponsorships.
  • Why do reindeer scratch themselves?  They’re the only ones who know where they itch!
  • What do snowmen each for breakfast?  Snowflakes!
  • What do you call a Santa Claus who comes down the chimney with a fire in it?  Crispy Kringle!
Rotary eClub One is a fully chartered Rotary club and spending 30 minutes on their club site is a Rotary International approved make-up. Rotary International by-laws were changed in 2007 to provide for this make-up. If you have not completed an online make-up yet, you will find it full of more Rotary information then you might typically get at a traditional meeting.
Don't know who does what?  The Golden Rotary Business Directory has all that information for you!  If you are interested in finding an attorney, a financial advisor, or money manager, the Business Directory has it all.  Just:  CLICK HERE
