On Thursday, September 16th, we volunteered at the Poudre High School Mobile Pantry. The Food Bank is hosting pop-up mobile food pantries throughout Larimer County. Anyone in need of food is welcome to attend. The pantries are “drive-through” where clients can receive a variety of pre-selected food items. We served over 108 families on Thursday.

This Wednesday at noon at the Lincoln Center, our guest speaker will be John Carter, Vice President and Senior Principal of CPP Wind Engineers.  CPP’s  team, based in Windsor, CO and Sydney, Australia provide a wide variety of wind and airflow related services for projects around the world.  Following his introduction by Bob Meroney,  our speaker will showcase some of the prominent and interesting projects this company has worked on, and fill us in on the new company facility in Windsor. John will finish with some thoughts about what the next 40 years might look like in our world.

At our meeting in the Lincoln Center on October 13th at noon, fellow Rotarian Judge Juan Villaseñor will share his observations on the adjustments our courts and the related governmental offices have had to make in response to the pandemic and general social unrest we have all been dealing with for some time now. Judge Villaseñor was appointed to the District Court bench in 2018. He received his undergraduate degree from St. John’s College in 1997 and his law degree from Vanderbilt University Law School in 2001.
Last week we listened to an excellent and important talk entitled Restorative Justice in Our Community.  We were fortunate to have two presenters, Perrie McMillen, Supervisor of the City’s mediation and Restorative Justice Services and Cpl Jarad Sargent, a Poudre R-1 school resource officer (SRO).
Last week, CSU professor of economics, Daniele Tavani, helped us understand How Much We Should Worry About the US Government debt?  The first slide showed a “worrisome” curve showing the rise in total debt over the past 50 years to (currently) 24 trillion dollars. A better indicator of the issue is illustrated by the curve of the Federal debt from 1940 to the present as a per cent of the GDP. The most recent number is 126% (the recent rise observed is thought to be secondary to COVID and should improve with effective management of the pandemic).
