On February 23, 2017, Broomfield Rotary had the honor of hosting Lt. Col Mike Daniels from the Civil Air Patrol as well as C/1st Lieutenant Gage Salyer who is a student at Broomfield High School and a member of the Broomfield Composite Squadron.

The Civil Air Patrol (CAP) is celebrating its 75th anniversary! It was created the week before the Pearl Harbor attack to provide border and coastal patrols, and military training. CAP is the official US Air Force Auxiliary.

The CAP mission is Search and Rescue, Disaster Relief, Homeland Security, Counter Drug, Humanitarian Services, and Air Force student ROTC Flights. It serves the local community, our State and the Nation as well as coordinating with other countries. CAP aircraft were the first in the air over New York City after 9/11. The CAP has 52 wings—in every State and territory.

The CAP has a very important function with their student Cadet programs, to provide leadership skills, aerospace education, physical fitness, and character development. There are several levels of Cadet squadrons, based on the age of the cadets. Every June the cadets may attend the COWG summer encampment at the US Air Force Academy. There, they have the opportunity to take orientation flights.

They fly small single engine aircraft painted in red, white and blue. The Colorado Wing has 34 squadrons and are over 1700 members. They support many community activities and disaster assistance. Their missions save the government a great deal of money, by accomplishing their mission in place of costly main-line military aircraft.

On Monday, February 13, members of Broomfield Rotary’s Evening Club delivered flowers to several of the Broomfield area assisted-living facilities. After a large donation of flowers by the Colorado Home and Garden show, almost 800 flowers and plants were hand delivered to residents of Maryell Manor, Silvercrest, the Salvation Army, and the Broomfield Senior Center. After seeing the delightful smiles on the faces of the seniors who were there to pick out their favorite flowers, there was no doubt it was the best way to spend the day before Valentine’s Day!

Colorado Garden & Home Show Interesting in signing up to help collect the flowers?
On Sunday, February 12th you will be admitted FREE, along with your family and friends, to the Garden & Home Show where you can spend the afternoon enjoying the show. Then, at about 6:00 pm we’ll all be called together and given instructions on how to collect and box the flowering plants that are suitable for distribution the next morning. If you’d like to car-pool to the show we’ll talk about it the Club meeting just before the event. It is a good idea to bring a pair of gloves if you don’t want to get your hands dirty.

Interesting in signing up to help with distributing the flowers?
Monday February 13th, we will meet at McDonald’s at 1250 East 1st Avenue, Broomfield (near 120th and Sheridan) at 8:15 to distribute the plants to Maryel Manor, Salvation Army’s Silver Crest, Broomfield Skilled Nursing Center, the Broomfield Senior Center and Meals-on-Wheels. It will take less than 2 hours to distribute the flowers. Remember, each flowering plant delivered brings a big smile to the face of the recipient! And those smiles are wonderful!!!

On Saturday, December 10th, 2016 Broomfield Rotary club members distributed 37 bikes and 3 tricycles to kids from Broomfield and Adams Counties at the annual CASA Holiday Party. The Party was held at the Ranch country Club in Westminster from 10 to noon. CASA provided the tricycles for the youngest of the kids. Good Samaritan Hospital / Exempla provided a trauma nurse and fitted helmets for all the bike recipients.

Broomfield Rotary Club members repaired and cleaned bikes during the previous month in preparation for this event. Broomfield Rotary members prepared over 50 bikes for the event!! We have 30 plus bikes left in the storage facility that will be given away to children in the Broomfield community in the future.

CASA, Good Samaritan Hospital / Exempla and Broomfield Rotary Club worked together to make this holiday season a little brighter for 40 children who were seeking bicycles / tricycles and now have one to call their own.

CASACASA has requested about 35 bikes for kids for their Christmas Party this year. I am asking that club members sign up for this weekend work sessions to work on bikes. I have scheduled 10 to noon this Saturday to clean and repair bikes. Also the same time Sunday if needed.

We have previously prepared some of the bikes but with additional requests received today we need to do some more work.

The bikes are in Bob Davis’s garage at 14531 Yosemite St, Brighton. I will be attending this weeks meeting with sign up sheets for the work sessions. You can sign up at the meeting or reply to me by email.

The CASA Christmas party is Dec 10 in the morning and we will need workers to haul, set up, and distribute the bikes at that time too. Should be a roughly 9 AM to 12 PM schedule.

See you at the meeting or reply.

Regards,
Bob Edmondson
