Great Valentine’s Day with the seniors decorating cookies and cupcakes at Bethesda Gardens and Jackson Creek Senior Living all while spreading love and joy 💕 . We even got to see Elvis perform at BG. Big shoutout and THANK YOU to American Pie Bakery (www.americanpiecolorado.com) for donating the cookies for our special day with the residents! They loved how cute and yummy they were!

The scholarship program was initiated by Tri-Lakes Dynamic Rotary Club in 2024 when the Club decided to offer a scholarship to three deserving D38 high school graduating seniors; (Palmer Ridge High School, Lewis-Palmer High School, Monument Academy, & Homeschoolers).  These students must be attending a postsecondary institution - trade school, community college, university, or another education pursuit. 

The deadline for 2024 applications is April 15, 2024.

On February 8, 2024, the Rotary Club of Puerto Vallarta presented the bus keys. The next day, they handed over a van/bus to the school an provided us with the opportunity to meet some of the school staff and morning shift students via Zoom. Khurshid Qureshi (Tri-Lakes)  gave a brief tour of the school facilities. This van was purchased with contributions from Tri-Lakes Dynamic Rotary, Broadmoor Rotary, and the Rotary Club of Colorado Springs. An attachment with signage for the van is included. Thank you all. Additionally, books and school supplies were donated to the students.
On February 2nd, the Rotary Club of Colorado Springs' World Peace and Understanding Luncheon, featured a remarkable guest speaker, LeAnn Thieman. Our very own, Brenda Small- President-Elect, was one of the organizers. There wasn't a dry eye in the room and she was an awesome speaker who had everybody's attention every second until the end of the program.
"Who is LeAnn Thieman? LeAnn, a celebrated international keynote speaker, author, and nurse, experienced an incredible journey during the Vietnam Orphan Airlift in 1975. This harrowing experience, where she played a pivotal role in rescuing 300 babies as Saigon fell, is vividly recounted in her book, "This Must Be My Brother." 
Billy Jack and Jeanne from The Remount Foundation came to share about the foundation’s work in supporting service members, veterans, first responders, and their families to find healing from the effects of PTSD, TBI, and other life trauma through equine therapy.

Coats were distributed on Dec. 11 and 14. As one recipient said, "[There’s] something about having a new coat that can’t be duplicated." The coats were collected at donation boxes at local businesses around Monument as well as at a coat and cash donation day Dec. 2. Photo by Julie Keim. (https://www.ocn.me/v24n1.htm#photos)
