Supporting the Parker Library While Honoring Our Guest Speakers

End Polio Now!
Thank you to the many members who have already donated/pledged to this year’s fundraising campaign.  If we all pitch in, we can make the club’s goal of $5000.  Remember that the Rotary Club of Parker Foundation will provide a dollar-for-dollar match for contributions from $25 to $50.  Please contact Lew Million at to make your pledge for this year. 
Announcements Lamplighter April 19
Our meeting on April 25 will be held at Joy Lutheran Church (7051 E Parker Hills Court, Parker, 80138).  This will be the third and final trial location in our search for a new venue. 
Also coming up at the April 25 meeting, Pat Kendrick reminded us of the vote on the amendment to our club's constitution necessary to facilitate our relocation from Parker Adventist Hospital to a new venue.   Currently, the hospital's name and address are specifically cited in Article 4 "Locality of the Club."  With this amendment, Article 4 "Locality of the Club" will now read "greater Parker, Colorado area."  Please make every effort to attend the April 25 meeting, as we need a quorum to approve this change.
Wayne Wagener reminded us of the fundraiser to support the victims of the flooding in Nebraska and other midwestern states.  To make a donation, write your check to the Denver Southeast Rotary Club Foundation (write Nebraska Flood Relief in the subject line) and send it to
Denver Southeast Rotary Club Foundation, Attn: Kris Morse
PO Box 2764
Littleton, CO   80161. 
Joe Gregory is heading up the effort – if you have questions, you can contact him directly at or 303-345-5370.
Alvaro Pisoni reminded us of the Open World Program coming up from June 7-15.  Open World delegates from the nation of Georgia will speak to our club on June 13.
