The Broomfield Crossing Rotary Club honored 5th grader Stella Hostetter as the Emerald Elementary School "Citizen of the Month" at a March 18 presentation at the school's monthly assembly.  Stella was nominated for the award by her teachers, Melissa Tingley and Carrie Troxel, for her fundraising efforts on behalf of another local child who has had a serious illness and is fighting for life after having severe neurological damage as a result of the illness.  Stella has raised over $400 and also used her own birthday money to add to the fundraiser.

Rotary President Gary McKee, who noted that Stella's effort exemplifies Rotary's motto "Service Above Self," presented the award and a gift certificate to Barnes & Noble Books to Stella to honor her efforts.

On December 1st, members of the Rotary Club of Broomfield Crossing began a busy week throwing their annual Christmas bash for children and senior citizens in our Broomfield Community. San...ta took a special break from his toy making with the elves at his North Pole workshop to help the Rotarians get an early start on the Christmas celebration. With his support and participation, again this year we visited children and seniors over a three-day period.

As is the annual tradition, the Rotarians hosted a special event Thursday evening for the foster families served by Broomfield’s Health and Human Services (HHS). Each of the children had a visit with Santa, and afterwards one could see twinkles in their eyes, except for a tear here and there from the wee little ones. After the Santa visit, the families enjoyed pizza while the kids were active playing games and receiving a sack of candy including a special gift certificate. Miss Heidi Thomas came with dancers from the Dance Arts Studio to provide the evening’s entertainment. And for the finale, children were invited to join the dancers and test their dancing skills. It was a great evening for all.

Santa visited the Salvation Army after-school program where, to wonderment in the eyes of the little ones, sacks of candy were distributed to the children. In addition, Santa and the Rotarians handed out gifts provided by F.R.I.E.N.D.S. of Broomfield to their program participants.

Finally, the Rotarians and Santa came away with many fond memories of raising spirits by singing Christmas Carols with the seniors at the Broomfield Skilled Nursing and Rehabilitation Center.

The Rotarians send out a big “Thank You” to financial donors for their generous contributions, to “Hammond’s Candies” for the donation of their signature candy canes, and to Jerry Clark for making and donating small wooden cars that were included in the sacks of goodies.

...and thanks to all Rotarians at Broomfield Crossing for making this year so successful.

On Friday, October 31st members of the Rotary Club of Broomfield Crossing attended the Halloween assembly at Emerald Elementary School where 3rd grade student Jacob Thomas was presented with a Citizen of the Month certificate and a $25 Barn...es and Noble Gift Card by Rotary Club president Gary McKee. It was awesome to see the energy and the costumes of the students. What was even more special was that Jacob was selected by his fellow students and not the teachers, as putting service above self … to be selected by your peers is truly a special award.
 
Pictured here are Jacob Thomas and his teacher Sara McIntosh.

On Sunday, October 12th about a dozen brave souls bundled with warm clothes and rain gear to participate in the 2014 Broomfield CROP Hunger Walk organized by Rotary Club of Broomfield Crossing. CROP Hunger Walks are sponsored by Church World Services as a way for neighbors walking together to take a stand against hunger in our world. This year part of the proceeds from the Broomfield walk went to Broomfield FISH and North Denver Cares Food Pantry. We had teams from Holy Comforter Episcopal Church, Broomfield United Methodist Church and United Church of Broomfield participating in this year’s walk. Holy Comforter won the traveling trophy for the most donations raised and United Church of Broomfield won the traveling trophy for the most walkers participating. Thanks to the Broomfield community for supporting this most important cause.

Over the weekend of May 2nd – 4th the Rotary Club of Broomfield Crossing was honored with two membership awards at the District Conference held in Denver, Colorado. Mike Daniels, President of Broomfield Crossing, accepted an award for Recognition of Membership Development Initiatives and an award for Best Club Growth with Broomfield Crossing growing over 109% in the past year.
 
The Rotary Club employed a number of strategies and changes in attitude to attract and retain membership, including: changing meeting location and lowering dues, focusing on visitors, constantly looking for those that would make good Rotarians, initiating 5th Tuesday Parties to involve families and friends in the club, seeking diversity in the club, continually emphasizing Service Above Self in everything we do, engaging membership, marketing to the community, and making sure everyone is always welcome at the Rotary Club of Broomfield Crossing. All of these ideas combined have led to the continued success and growth of the club.
 
Congratulations to the Rotary Club of Broomfield Crossing and President Mike Daniels for these awards.
The Rotary Club of Broomfield Crossing meets at iPie at 145 Nickel St in Broomfield every Tuesday at 7:10AM.
