Work project at Crossroads Safehouse
If further work is needed, we'll finish it
We accepted a new member into our club at the last Board Meeting, on Tuesday. Dave Blomberg
invited Michael Gilmore into the club, and Michael accepted, with a check. My kind of guy!
Unfortunately, we lost another member, Brian Batts. Apparently Brian just had too much going on to
make our meetings, so he was officially dropped from the roles at the last Board Meeting.
Community Foundation account is now at
Just a quick reminder, once again, about our
Foundation. It was established some
years back, with the intention of funding some
lucky local kid's scholarship (or two!) on a
yearly basis. The idea was that we could
use the interest every year to make this
scholarship happen, never touching the
principal. As all great ideas go, this
one really is pretty good. The only
downside is that,
instead of the 10% yearly interest we had at
the time, it is something less.
So, besides whatever interest we gather on
it, we supplement the fund with monies from
the brag box, and money from members for
birthdays and anniversaries. There is a
drawing at the end of the meeting, and the
drawee receives $20 for staying 'till the end.
The rest of the money is deposited into our
Foundation. That would be the
Community Foundation of Northern Colorado
. They keep things on the "up and up",
and give us regular reports of how much we
have, which I update in this newsletter when I
get a new number.
There are other ways we can fund this, as
well. Any part of your estate can be
donated. I'm told it's pretty easy to
add a codicil to your will to donate some
percentage. Your insurance policy can be
similarly instructed to pay off some
percentage (or ALL), if you're so inclined,
to the Foundation. Next time YOU have a
birthday or anniversary, brag about it
with a check, if you can, and help us reach
our goal of $75,000!
who would like to be the Golf Czar this year?
Our Beer Czar from last season re-upped, so
Benedict will continue to be a familiar face.
There is enough work for several, so if someone
taps YOU on the
shoulder and asks if you can help Josh one weekend
(or more!), do you part to help out, and say
We are in need of a Golf Czar,
however. Dave Blomberg said he could help
whoever takes on the job,
but he just does not have the time to take it all
It's too late, it seems, to get an early start on
our tournament. It was discussed recently
that we could do an
intraclub tournament in the Fall. Whatever
we do, we need a volunteer at the helm. Call
Ron Young or
Rob Allerheiligen if you are interested.
Brad Burns bragged that he is almost
ready to close escrow on his Ft.
After 15 years (!!) of raising money for
Pathways Hospice and Respite Care, Christy
Abby's Signature Concert Series fame,
has decided that this will be the last
year of fundraising.
Over the 15 years, over $300,000 has been
raised, which has been
a HUGE help to these two agencies.
As their last fund-raising year, they have
decided that they would like
to "go out with a bang", and have set a
goal of $50,000 to be distributed to the
two agencies. The closest
they have come to this goal is $42K, with
5 concerts. This year there will be
three, the first of which will be on
Friday, April 6th.
We are all invited, of course!
Rob reminded us that
we should all be careful when taking
pictures with your cell phone. If
you have GPS on your phone, and it is
turned on, that information will be
imbedded in your picture. If you
post it to FaceBook, for example, someone
could "right-click" on the picture and
determine the exact location of the
picture! So. BE AWARE!
Ron Young had a personal thanks for Jim
Bernecker for the wonderful article that was

Garage Sale plans are ongoing . . . .
we're still shooting for the middle of April.
This seems pretty dependent upon our ability to
convince someone to let us beg, borrow, or rent a
building large enough to hold our "stuff", with
the ability to overflow into a parking lot,
Keep in mind that, unlike YOUR garage sale,
perhaps, we're looking for decent stuff that might
actually SELL! It sure would be a pain if we
had to DUMP it all at the end of the day.
