Hot Spots – Afghanistan and Ukraine – Their Impact on the USA
On Wednesday, May 11, Rotary meets live at the Lincoln Center at noon to hear fellow Rotarian John Roberts. He has been invited to give us his take on the effects in the lives of Americans from events in two remote nations, Afghanistan, and the Ukraine.  John notes that… “Despite divergent histories in Central Asia and Eastern Europe, in many ways the nations of Afghanistan and Ukraine have significantly impacted American policy and psychic. Recent events in these two cultures have unsettled the world. It’s important for us to understand and appreciate the basic reasons for these international tragedies, and what might be salvaged now.”     READ MORE...

Dues and Budget for 2022-23
At the April Board meeting, the Board voted to approve the Club budget for 2022-23. Dues for 2022-23 will remain at $74 a quarter. For the Noon Meeting, the Meal and Facility Charges will be determined later, as they depend on meeting frequency and cost of catering.  We have had lower than usual spending by the club and the district during the pandemic, resulting in surplus. The Board has decided to invest those savings into Membership and Fellowship for 2022-23, which is why the budget shows deficit spending.
Approved Controlables Budget for 2022-23 (July 1st 2022 to June 30th 2023)  If you have questions on the budget, please email our Treasurer, Steve Kane, at treasurer@fortcollinsrotary.org or contact our President-Elect, Marty Bachman.
RSVP for Guest Lunches
For our noon Lincoln Center meetings, please pre-purchase guest lunches on Eventbrite.  Please also use Eventbrite to purchase lunches if you normally attend our evening meeting or in the noon beverage only category.
