Latest Club News

The members of the Rotary Club of Parker join our voices with the other Rotarians of District 5450 to thank health care workers for your Service above Self during the coronavirus pandemic!

 
 
We mourn the death of long-time Rotarian Lindy Blackburn on December 17, 2020. Among his many contributions, Lindy was serving the club as President of the Foundation of the Rotary Club of Parker. As noted on the website for Ponderosa Valley Funeral Services, "a celebration of Lindy's life will be held when COVID-19 allows large groups to properly gather."  Our thoughts and prayers are with his family.
 
 

We congratulate Brooks Bacon on being selected as the December Student of the Month for Chaparral High School!  Brooks joined us at our December 17 meeting accompanied by his parents Greg and Kendra.

As one teacher noted, Brooks exemplifies the Chaparral motto Take Care of One Another.  He has served the Chaparral community with Sources of Strength, a suicide-prevention program, since 2017.  He also participates in Link Crew, student government, and DECA.  Brooks has lettered academically all four years of high school.  He told us that he was able to participate in the Fall cross-country season and is looking forward to spring track.

Brooks is still finalizing his college plans, but is considering majoring in biology or business.  We wish you great success in your future endeavors, Brooks!

 
Congratulations to Carter Motichka, the December Student of the Month for Ponderosa High School!  Carter was able to attend our December 10 Zoom meeting; also joining us were parents Kelly and Mark Motichka and Ponderosa coaches Max Schuman (basketball) and Jaron Cohen (football).
 
Carter is a triple threat, with strong academic skills, athletic skills, and a record of service to the Ponderosa community.  He has played varsity basketball and football (serving as team captain) and is First Team Academic All-State.  In addition, he has lettered academically all years of high school and is currently ranked 6th in a class of 346. 
 
Carter currently serves as student body treasurer at Ponderosa.  He has also served as a Link Crew leader and on the Student Advisory Group.  He has worked with youth in various Hawks Football and Ponderosa sports camps in both football and basketball.
 
Carter hopes to major in biology on his way to becoming a neurosurgeon.  We wish you the best, Carter!

We were happy to welcome Mikaela Fischer, November Student of the Month for Chaparral High School to our December 3 Zoom meeting, accompanied by her mom Judy.

Mikaela has lettered academically all four years of high school.  She currently serves as the Senior Class Vice-president and is involved with DECA and Link Crew.  One teacher praised her for “immediately mobilizing to make thousands of masks for those in need” when the pandemic struck earlier this year.  Mikaela is also on the Poms team. 

Mikaela has set her sights on attending an East coast school to major in biology and eventually to study neurology.  Congratulations, Mikaela!

Thank you to all the sponsors and participants of the 2020 State of the Town business luncheon and Impact Award, hosted by the Rotary Club of Parker.
