Recap of April 18, 2017, Meeting
President Pat Madison welcomed all to the April 18, 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.

KEVIN NICHOLS (Special message from Golden High School)
Kevin introduced Julie Spawn, Golden High School Interact Club (GHSIC).  GHSIC won Ron Prascher Award last year for being the best Interact Club in the District.  Julie will become the president next year.  Here is a little what they have accomplished this year: In the fall they hosted the Interact Club District Conference.  Recently they held a car wash and raised $700 for Freshwater Project International.  Last winter they sold “UDABANDS,” to raise money for a girl in Guatemala to go to school.  Her favorite project was a food drive for Halloween (trick or treat for canned food) during which they raised about 500 food items and donated them to Christian Action Guild.  They have about 50 members.
President Pat and the Club Membership Induction Team, including our own indomitable Mike Bestor, welcomed Len Matheo (with President Pat as his mentor) as our newest member of Golden Rotary.  Len found the arts as a way to express himself when he was younger.  He is the Artistic Director of Miner’s Alley Playhouse.  In his younger years, Len worked professionally as an actor in New York City, and ultimate started to work in the health club industry to help pay the bills.  He moved from making $20k/year to over$75k/year and decided that having more money was better.  After a divorce, he found his way west where he found is way back to the arts through business.  He and his wife have one adopted child, and together they have a “trial and jury consulting firm” through which they help train attorneys.  They are known throughout North America for their civil defense.  Welcome, Len, to Golden Rotary!
President Pat invited Michelle Barnes (Linda Dierderichsen “subbing” for Joan) and Mic DeMin (with mentor Mike Bestor) to come forward to replace their Red Badge with their official “blue badge”!  After a few comments about how each engaged in a lot of activities with the club, each was handed their new “blue badge.”
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
