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.
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 a sunny day in September Marie Rowe and Nancy Clark from Rotary Club of Broomfield Crossing helped to keep Broomfield neat by donning their vests and collecting litter along the clubs adopted section of Sheridan Blvd between 136th and 144th.
