On Wednesday we'll hear from Bob's good friend, and mine, Denny Dressman. Denny is a former VP with the Rocky Mountain News. Earlier in his career he was a sports editor, and he is deeply knowledgeable about sports, most especially Rockies baseball. But he'll be talking with us about  legendary Grambling football coach Eddie Robinson, who was the Martin Luther King of football. Denny has written a book about Robinson, and in the process he learned a great deal about the Jim Crow Era in American history. It was fascinating research. Wait 'til you hear. . . . 

Following this meeting, we will have a board meeting from 1:45 to 2:30. 

Yesterday (Saturday) was Inter-Faith Community Service's benefit Nibbles & Sips at the DTC Hyatt. It was a fabulous party with lots of vendors offering samples of wines, beers and the stronger stuff, along with yummy appetizers. Bob and I enjoyed the company of Vee Sabel, Don and Lori Loyd and our friends the Dressmans at our table. Frank and Sherry Sargent and their family and friends were at several other tables. The great news is that this was a very, very successful fund-raiser. The live auction alone brought in $22,000. And it couldn't come at a better time, because Inter-Faith is the safety net for so many people who have lost their jobs or otherwise hit hard times. 

At our meeting Feb. 23, we will introduce the club to our new website and ClubRunner software. Webmaster Robert Spalding, with Josh Staller, will demonstrate the many benefits of this improved means of communicating with our members and guests. Robert also will teach us about our club's presence on Facebook, and how we can all add to content there.
And coming up in March, we will be socializing with a potluck party at Vee and John Sabel's home. One of my goals for this Rotary year was to increase opportunities for fellowship and fun. This evening, Saturday, March 19, promises to be a highlight!

See you at the Wellshire!
