Ear Community Visit

Melissa Tumblin was presented a check from Broomfield Rotary for her non-profit Ear Community which helps families with ear and hearing challenges. The check included 2500 dollars from the Broomfield Club and 2100 dollars from a matching grant from Rotary District 5450.  Melissa presented an interesting capsule of the Ear Community’s accomplishments over the past 14 years. The Ear Community has had interactions with over 20,00 people and have provided needed equipment and scholarships to those affected by this impairment throughout the world. The Ear Community has had impact in many countries across the world including North and South America, Europe, South Africa, Asia and Australia. Mellissa’s daughter Ally was the motivator for the non-profit and the Ear Community has made an impressive impact in support of those affected by the condition.

Gordon Long and Revital Colorado


Last Thursday, we had the honor of discovering Revital Colorado, founded by Gordon Long. In September 2020, Gordon established Revital Colorado’s 501©(3) to address the mental health and well-being of our first responders.

Jordan and his wife, Kym, personally faced the physical and mental challenges inherent in their roles, including relationship issues and alcohol-related struggles. Shockingly, statistics related to first responders’ mental health reveal that there is a suicide every 8 hours, and the average life expectancy after retirement is a mere 18 months.

After grappling with their own difficulties for several years, Jordan and Kym recognized the need for a preventative approach to prioritize first responders’ mental health. During his presentation and on their website, Gordon passionately expressed his commitment to supporting public servants and their families through various means. Revital Colorado provides a safe space where first responders can engage in activities and share experiences and traumas with colleagues who truly understand the unique challenges of their job. Their ultimate goal is to enable first responders to be more present with their families and better equipped to perform their duties at a higher level. Gordon was very passionate about sharing his belief that fostering community and connection is a crucial way to support the mental health and well-being of our dedicated first responders.

Operation Fayth

by Robert Balzano

Thursday evening at our Rotary meeting we had a visit from an extraordinary young lady named Fayth and her parents, Darrel and Melissa Cates.  Fayth came to thank us for a $300.00 grant that the Broomfield Rotary Foundation gave them for their nonprofit organization called Operation Fayth. Operation Fayth is an organization that gives back to children who are battling the hardest days of their lives! Fayth is also battling her own battles with Adolescent multiple sclerosis, and other health issues. Despite her own struggles, this truly amazing young lady unselfishly continues to make a difference.

Anchor House

Ben Vagher, John Bosio, Bill Thiemeis
This Thursday we were visited by John Bosio and Bill Thiemeis thanking Broomfield Rotary for our $3,800 donation to support Anchor House.  Anchor House offers resources and guidance for youth transitioning out of foster care through affordable supportive housing that gives each tenant opportunities to reach their full potential toward independent living while surrounded by a positive community.  They offer every resident a studio apartment that is fully furnished with a bed, table and chairs, dresser and television that they may take with them when they are ready to transition out of Anchor House after a year or more of residence. The kitchen has a sink, refrigerator, stove and dishwasher. Rotary’s donation will help replace this furniture when the tenant moves out.

Broomfield Rotary is working to identify the needs of our community and give accordingly. 

By working together with other organizations and volunteers, Broomfield Rotary has made it a priority to increase volunteer services to the community and improve all fundraising efforts that help support local non-profits, such as these. 
Thank you for your support.
