Colchester Milton Rotary Club is Making Strides!

Posted by Betty Koshinsky on Oct 04, 2011

Dear Fellow Rotarians:

Happy Autumn!  As the annual October event, "Making Strides Against Breast Cancer" approaches,  we invite your participation for this high-visibility community event. We are excited to announce that Colchester-Milton Rotary Club is Making Strides on October 16, 2011.

Why are we walking?

Because we know that we will make a difference.  We know that by raising funds and walking in a Making Strides Against Breast Cancer event, we will help to save lives and create a world with less breast cancer and more birthdays.

   This year,  Making Strides is more than a slogan – it's about supporting our fellow Rotarian, Rubi, and our community members, including a Town of Colchester employee, who are fighting cancer.  Rubi is a member of our own Rotary Club, a mother of three young children, and a strong advocate for literacy and community service. Rubi and her family will lead our team, and we're inspired by her courage and determination. By our commitment to walk and raise funds, we will make a difference through this inspiring and powerful event.

Please help us to support Making Strides with a donation to our Colchester-Milton Rotary Club team. 

We believe that it's  truly important to let our communities know that Rotarians care.  We strive to inspire others to act, to raise awareness of Rotary's mission, and to raise our voices in support of  those facing cancer in our own community and throughout our Vermont communities.

Please note that our window for fundraising  is short – please mail your donations to our Rotary Club address by October 15, 2011.   Checks may be made payable to the  American Cancer Society with "Making Strides Against Breast Cancer" on the memo line.  Mail to: Colchester-Milton Rotary Club, P.O. Box 82, Colchester, VT 05446.

This year's Making Strides Against Breast Cancer event is on Sunday, October 16, 12:00 Noon, at Dorset Park in South Burlington, Vermont.  The event is a 4.5 mile walk and includes pre-walk warmup, free refreshments and team photos.  The event also features a  Basket Raffle with great gift items donated by local businesses and friends of Making Strides.

 We sincerely hope that you will consider joining us – all are welcome.

Together, we can make strides! 

Yours In Rotary Service,

Betty Koshinsky and  Leora Black, Co-Chairs, Making Strides team

Kiki Leech, Community Service Committee Chair

Due to the unprecedented flooding of the Colchester waterfront regions, the Colchester - Milton Rotary is organizing our entire community to assist with the clean up.  For two days, we will remove debris from neighborhoods and beaches.  We have engaged an assortment of professionals that will be on site with heavy equipment but this effort will require the hands of as many of our community members as possible. Join us for two days of helping our friends and neighbors as well as preserving our twenty-seven miles of shoreline.

Nuts for Literacy

Posted by Kiki Leech on Feb 04, 2011
story-thumbnail
The Literacy Committee was looking to promote literacy as well as incorporate a fund raising opportunity what they came up with was "Nuts for Literacy".  The committee thought the slogan was a perfect fit for the glazed nuts that we were going to sell at the 2010 Apple Fest (but was the entire event was cancelled due to high water). The glazed nuts were prepared & packaged by Kiki leech and Michael Swaidner's design team came up with the logo and labels for our packaging. The committee made $280 at the Colchester Winter Fest and we will continue to sell the nuts which should generate a $500 profit when all are sold.

Changes in Nov 19th Meeting Location

Posted by Kiki Leech

Due to an overload at the Hampton inn, our club will be meeting at the Pomerleau Alumni Center at St Michael's College next week.  The Pomerleau Alumni Center is located on Route 15, but the entrance is on Lime Kiln Road.

We have Con Hogan coming to talk about health care in Vermont and Tom Raub is going to make a presentation to a Guardsman for our donations to Operation Holiday Homecoming.  So, it is going to be a great meeting in which to invite potential members.

Only 5% of those eligible to donate blood in our country do so. When asked why they don't donate blood most Americans state that they have never been asked. You can no longer use that reason, as we are asking that you donate during our August blood drive.
