We believe good health care is everyone’s right. Yet 400 million people in the world can’t afford or don’t have access to basic health care.

Disease results in misery, pain, and poverty for millions of people worldwide. That’s why treating and preventing disease is so important to us. We lead efforts both large and small. We set up temporary clinics, blood donation centers, and training facilities in underserved communities struggling with outbreaks and health care access. We design and build infrastructure that allows doctors, patients, and governments to work together.

Our members combat diseases like malaria, HIV/AIDS, Alzheimer’s, multiple sclerosis, diabetes, and polio. Prevention is important, which is why we also focus on health education and bringing people routine hearing, vision, and dental care.

Dan Jorgensen

Dan Jorgensen was our presenter for our Thursday gathering. Dan is a well-known and accomplished writer of novels and editorials. He is a 34-year member of Rotary who was once a member of the Morning Crossing here in Broomfield. His presentation was very interesting, entertaining, and well received. He introduced his latest novel “Rainbow Rock”, which is the second book of a series of three. He described how he developed the storyline, which is based on murder mysteries. Dan was the last one to leave, with many Rotarians purchasing his signed copies of his books. I am also including his bio for your review!

A native of Minnesota, Dan Jorgensen grew up on a South Dakota farm, attending a one-room country school and becoming the first member of his family to attend college. After earning both his bachelor’s and master’s degrees from South Dakota State University, he studied creative writing and film at Colorado State University, where he wrote his first book, Killer Blizzard.

He has won awards for both his creative writing and newspaper feature writing and for his work in educational public relations.

In addition to writing many hundreds of news and sports articles and feature stories, both as a journalist and in public relations, he also is the author of 9 books, including the award-winning bestsellers “And The Wind Whispered” and “Killer Blizzard.” His newest book is the mystery/adventure “Rainbow Rock.”

He also has written 3 songs, a one-act play; contributed to 2 anthologies, and is a frequent presenter on the topics “Storytelling―From Journalism to Creative Writing” and “The Writing Life.” He also writes the blog “A Writer’s Moment.”

Among the professional organizations with which he has been affiliated are the Council for Advancement & Support of Education (CASE); The National Association of Science Writers; Kappa Tau Alpha (the national journalism honorary); Sigma Delta Chi; Veterans of Foreign Wars; Rotary International; and Historical Writers of America.

Audrey Leavette
November 16, 2023, Audrey Leavitt, a Rotarian and a member of the Mile High Rotary Club and the District 5450 Polio Committee, shared the story of her part in Rotary's drive to end Polio. She has been actively involved in eradicating polio across the globe. Audrey’s journey began in 1999 when she traveled to Madagascar to do inoculations with a team from Rotary District 7450. That experience had a profound effect on her, and since then, she has helped with National Inoculation Days (NIDs) in Nigeria and several times in India. Audrey continues to give presentations on the importance of Rotary International’s mission to eliminate polio. She urges us, as a club and club members, to continue supporting this noble cause.

Gary Francis

Thursday November 9, 2023

Gary Francis entertained us during our meeting Thursday with his incredible story about his career as a Navy Submarine Officer. It was obvious that Gary was a dedicated officer when he talked about the four missions during his career. As a young man, he volunteered to be in the Submarines Division and was quickly moved to higher command positions. Gary’s passion for serving this country and contributing to the defense of his fellow citizens was very obvious, and he was very entertaining as always.

Gary is a long-term Broomfield Rotarian, joining our club in 1997. He has made and continues to make strong contributions to Rotary, including our club. He is also on the board of Broomfield Veterans Museum. He shared with us the upcoming events at the museum along with its history and how the facility is laid out. For more information, please visit http://www.broomfieldveterans.org.

Broomfield Rotary thanks you, Gary, for this awesome presentation and the service that you have provided to keep our country safe and free.

The submarine community is a small force that delivers a major impact and provides unique capabilities to operational commanders. As the maritime security environment has evolved into an asymmetrical warfighting scenario, we now face new weapons systems that can threaten our joint forces at over-the-horizon ranges. These long-range challenges underscore the demands on the submarine force to meet their growing and increasing scopes of responsibilities.

World War II submarine operations paved the way for most of today’s submarine missions. Today’s submarine force is the most capable force in the world and the history of the U.S. Navy, comprising 53 fast attack submarines, 14 ballistic-missile submarines, and four guided-missile submarines. Our existing fleet of ballistic submarines currently carries 54 percent of our nation’s nuclear deterrent arsenal, and their replacements will carry an even greater percentage of strategic warheads.
