Thank you to all who contributed to purchase Shelter Boxes for Haiti in response to the August 14 earthquake.  Your contributions will enable us to send FOUR Shelter Boxes!

Crews of Rotarians and family members were happy to return to the Stroh Ranch King Soopers to collect food and other necessities for the Parker Task Force on Saturday, August 14.  The community responded generously in these still-difficult times.  Here are three of the four smiling crews...

 
 
 
 

On July 26 members of the Rotary Club of Parker were joined by Sharon Sjostrom of the Douglas Land Conservancy (DLC), and our guide, Brian O’Malley from the Town of Parker, to tour the Harvie Open Space in Parker.  We saw and discussed the history of the land, artifacts of the Harvie family remaining on the property, and the Town’s plans for developing the open space so that it can be enjoyed by Parker residents while maintaining its undeveloped character.  Most importantly, we discussed what type of hands-on projects the club might engage in with the Town and DLC.

 
 
 

As an initial project, we are planning on a Saturday morning noxious weed (like the thistle in the photo) mitigation project in late August (date TBD) that we hope attracts participation from our members!  It will be a good project to bring your kids, grandkids and/or friends and neighbors.  As the Town’s plans for the park’s development approach implementation, we will seek other opportunities as well.

Another crew of Rotarians worked at the sensory gardens at Praying Hands Ranch on July 31.  We're making steady progress to beat back the weeds and reveal the lovely garden underneath!

After the successful event on July 24 to create hygiene kits to hand out in our community, the kits were first put to use at the Strive to Thrive event on July 27.  As noted on their webpage, "Strive to Thrive is a bi-annual event hosted by the Community of Care Network [of Douglas County]...Agencies and organizations come together to offer a one-stop-shop resource fair for vulnerable residents in Douglas County."  Here is the Rotary crew ready to hand out hygiene kits.  Thank you to all the Rotarians who helped put together the kits, and to the Rotary crew that staffed the Strive to Thrive event!  It was a rewarding experience to be among the community organizations providing care to Douglas County.
