The Cheyenne Symphony Orchestra during a global pandemic and update

The CSO during a global pandemic and update **Mtg location Little America Hotel & Resort
Jan 19, 2022
William Intriligator, Cheyenne Symphony Orchestra
The CSO during a global pandemic and update, the meeting location is Little America Hotel & Resort.

Maestro William Intriligator, Cheyenne Symphony Orchestra Music Director and Conductor, will give a brief overview of how the CSO is doing after nearly two years of a global pandemic.  He will also introduce the remaining concerts of the 2021/2022 season and discuss plans for the future.

Last week was a club business meeting with the Committee Chairs giving reports for their group.  Thanks to Lucie Osborn for taking the following notes at the meeting:
 
President Anja reviewed the Board Structure and how the Board communicates with the membership. This includes the weekly bulletin which goes out on Monday and also the website which has lots of helpful information including who the speakers will be as well as your member information.
 
Jera Likely, the Director responsible for PR reviewed the goals of the PR committee - I didn't get them all down but basically they want to share information with the public about the club, its activities and tell the story of who Rotarians are.  They use social media and traditional means.  Important PR last year include the 63 plus gutter bins throughout Cheyenne, the raffle for the Bronco and we were the Large Club of the Year for the District.  Facebook following has increased to 1,230 followers.  Rotary International has created a branding program which we are utilizing.  This past year - even with Covid -  with leadership from Lori and Dershie we had 8 socials held at Club sponsor locations and the summer picnic.
 
Scott Fox - Treasurer - thanked members for paying their dues on time.  Within the first 2 weeks of this quarter 55% have paid their dues.  Recently, 166 members received an email explaining how dues are billed and how you can pay them. He reviewed the procedure he follows and the flexibility there is to customize how you pay dues - a couple even pay dues annually.  He emphasized that he will work with a member to make dues paying work for them.  He shared that dues go to RI, District 5440, meals, service projects, youth programs, and club events like the socials.
 
Scott Van Horn and Bailey Nowak Membership Co-Chairs indicated that there will be a Rotary 101 in March and others throughout the year to help new members get acquainted with Rotary.  March 16 will be a New Member Recruitment Luncheon so think about people you can invite to the meeting.  If you have questions about membership or a new member idea please see Scott or Bailey.  Membership is involved or has planned for the future Rotary After Hours, Pop-up Community Service, Rotarian to Rotarian mentorship.  Coming soon will be a 'Giant Cup of Cog'.  Every other month there will be a cup to drop your business card in or a piece of paper with contact information.  Members will draw out a card and then contact that Rotarian for a coffee or lunch - a meeting to visit and get to know the other person.  
 
Mike Bleakley is congratulated on receiving his PH 1 and 2 by President Anja, PEN Lori Garrison and Foundation Chair Lori Schoene.
 
 
New Member Joseph Kibler was introduced by Patrick Lim.  The following is Joseph's introduction to the club:
Today I am pleased to introduce you to Joseph Kibler. He has been a Rotarian since 2012 and is transferring from the Rotary Club of Redlands in Southern California.
 
In Joseph’s tenure as a Rotarian he has had the pleasure of service on many committees including fund raising, membership, event leadership, website and marketing/Public Relations. He also helped spearhead many of the clubs most successful community projects, events and fund raisers.
 
Joseph is also the owner of a 20 year old website design and marketing agency located in Redlands called Creative 7 Designs. His company currently manages all the websites, digital marketing and PR for his previous club. His company also serves countless non-profits and service organizations across the region as well.
 
They specialize in forward thinking, digital/online solutions for business of all shapes and sizes. His companies mission statement reads as follows: We believe community involvement is an important part of our mission by helping those around us with our gifts and skills. We foster a strong, collaborative and fun team environment. We provide our customers with a high quality product which is fairly priced, executed in a timely manner and all done with excellent communication.
 
In addition to his service in Rotary and professional endeavors, Joseph also served his local community of Green Valley Lake as a Paid Call Firefighter for The San Bernardino County Fire Department. There he rose to the rank of Paid Call Fire Captain and served in that rank for the past 15 years. In this capacity he responded to thousands of local emergencies, managed complex emergency scenes, fires and more.
 
Joseph looks forwarding to bringing his skills, services and time to the Rotary Club of Cheyenne and the community it serves.
