Adult Holiday Party:
Everybody enjoyed the fashion show and the “ugly sweater” contest.  Many people were responsible for the success of this event:  Mustafa Menekse, Heather Drick, Jim Walter, and Mary Guthrie.  Thanks to all.
Children’s Holiday Party:
The event was held at the Children’s Garden and was a huge success.  Thanks to the Chair, Jared Black, and his wife Cheryl.
The Four Way Test Scholarship:
A $2,000 scholarship was awarded to Ross Melchoir for his essay.  Ross is a student at Central High School.  Thank you to Harmon Davis and his committee.
District Youth Exchange:
Our inbound students, Irem Karabal (Turkey) and Erik Soborg (Denmark), are finishing the school year and looking forward to their bus trip.  They will tour the southwestern United States in June.
Our outbound students, Maia Marces (Ecuador) and Sam Lapkin (Brazil), will be returning soon; and presenting their reports to the Club in the fall.
Next year we’re expecting a young lady from Belgium and a young man from Italy.  We’re still seeking a host family for the female student.  She will be attending East High School.  This could be your chance!
Both outbound students, Shelby Bell and Jessica Hrabovsky, have been selected to go to Belgium for the 2015-2016 school-year.
Our thanks goes out to Dirk Miller who has been the Chair of this committee.  Dirk will turn over the reins to Stephanie Denning.  Jenny Hargett and Tucker Stover have served as counselors for the students.  Thanks to them, as well.
Community Service Committee:
This new Committee Chaired by Lori Schoene hosted our first Community Service Day with the Club members painting greenway tunnels; spreading wood chips; and picking up trash along the greenway.  Subsequently the Club members filled sacks for the Friday Food Bag program.  The committee is looking to partner with Habitat for Humanity for a Saturday morning “Rotary” builds day.  Stay tuned.  Thanks, Lori.
Highway Cleanup Committee:
Wayne Johnson Chairs this committee.  You’re all invited to join Wayne and me and the young volunteers from the Interact Clubs of Central High School and East High School at the next highway cleanup:  Saturday, May 2nd.  We’ll all meet at Burger King (I-80 and South Greeley Highway) at 9:35.  Bring your friends and family -- and gloves for everybody.  We’ll all have lunch together, afterwards.  Remember:  Service above self!
