Fresh off the 2019 tour, coordinator Linda Gilbert reports to the Club on the effects of Burlington Rotary's continuing material support to Hands to Honduras -Tela.
 
Burlington Rotary Members at the door of the connector to
the existing hospital are bathed in a flood of light as we enter
the world of the new Miller Expansion at The UVM Medical Center!
The Burlington Rotary - 2019 Police Recognition Awards Luncheon
Monday, March 18 at 12 Noon at the Hilton
One of the largest audiences ever, attended the Joint Burlington Rotary - Burlington Police Dept. Awards Luncheon
A tropical rainstorm allowed the Vermont Rotarians and the local Tela Honduras Rotarians a moment to duck inside one of the new structures to take a break --and a quick pic!
Look for the latest report when our members return soon. (Like Dave Mount fr.rt.)
 
 
Representing the VERMONT(SSN 792) Commissioning Committee,
we welcome Chairperson Debra Martin, and husband Steve Martin (below)
who have brought their enthusiastic update on this key asset to be added to
our national defense sometime soon in early 2020!
Thanks, today to Joanne Nelson of Mercy Connections who stopped by to speak on one key program within the array managed by the agency.

EDUCATION & TRANSITION PROGRAMS:

We welcome Dr. Phelan Fretz Exec. Dir. of the Leahy Center for Lake Champlain at ECHO.
Even at the moment he was summarizing the activities and plans of the Center, the Current "Innovation Playground" December extravaganza was in full swing.
At the snowy November 13 meeting, a furry, but smiling under that, Ed Murphy receives a 100% Paul Harris Fellow Club banner, on behalf of the crew from District Governor Larry Vars. (Banner originally awarded at the District Conference November 1, 2018 -- but ceremony kept on ice until this day.)
 
With 165 Paul Harris Fellows, including every active member of the Club, Burlington becomes one of the first in District 7850, and in all of Vermont to attain that level of historic commitment to the Rotary Foundation, of Rotary International.
Ben Bosley - of Pinnacle Resolutions (Mediation in the work place)
Ben, in his disarmingly mellow sweater, was our guest to present his business. Which along with his introduction brought the news that he is affiliated with Mediators Beyond Boarders (MBBI). They have partnered with Rotary International connecting Rotary Peace Fellows, Rotarians, like us and perhaps our new Rotaractors in establishing mentoring , dispute resolution and the promotion of peace. OK, so now our ears perked up!
We finally got our schedule set and were visited by District 7850 Governor Larry Vars. The Burlington Club got in there as his 41st of the 41 clubs in the District to be honored by he, and his wife, Joan.
Along with the 2018-19 Banner, "BE THE INSPIRATION" neckties (what are those?) were handed out to President Joe and key officers who would dare to wear them. (Actually they're pretty sharp with Rotary Blue.)
 
Pres. Joe Gaida (r), District Gov. Vars (3r), with presidents and officers of the cooperating clubs, present the joint and matching grant check to beaming, and bow-tied Burlington YMCA Executive Dir. Kyle Dodson only hours before the "Ground Breaking" of the new facility on College Street.
(Below) Burlington Rotarians Sarah Sprayregan (UVM Foundation, c) and Ute Regan (3l ) chat with members of the Sunrise,South Burlington, Essex and Col-Milton Clubs prior to the joint meeting. (Which was great.)
 
Dave and Fran Mount dropped by the Charlotte-Shelburne-Hinesburg Club. And with CSH club President Eric Kolomaznik looking on, we presented our $4,000 check to our regional "Hands to Honduras" coordinator furthering Burlington's commitment to getting teams on site for continued construction and operations.
For more, see our September 25 posting!
 
Chip in $1,000.00 of Burlington Rotary's Foundation money-- nice.  Add $1,000.00 each from our fellow Clubs in Burlington, South Burlington, and other Rotary's in our Mini-District--Well, that's great! But when our good friends at the South Burlington Rotary Club get this matched with a District Grant...
                 NOW THAT'S $9,000.00+ OF IMPACT.
 
Members of our Club, and others, will join together at the South Burlington Club Thursday, November 1 at 7:30 AM for the presentation.
We're keeping our new "Y" in downtown Burlington!
That's Right - Once Again! Burlington Rotary has continued its multi-year commitment to materially fund the "Hands to Honduras" project, with February, 2019 funding, and person-power.  As evidenced below, a recent team with many Rotarians, including Burlington Rotarian David Mount (Recent owner of Westaff Employment, top 3rd from r.) and his wife Fran, (top 7th from r.) put real people on-site in order to continue to improve lives in the Tela, Honduras region.
 
After introduction by President Joe Gaida (r), Burlington Rotarian Springer Harris (Teucrium Trading, LLC) presented a targeted appeal to review the current state of Burlington's Downtown Business District, and to consider the options for change, including the return of more control of incremental funding -- and decision-making -- to the actual businesses operating in the District.
 
Has so much control passed to City government that its businesses haven't gotten their money's worth? Can more say in the spending improve what the downtown looks like? Many say - YES!

AFTER 95 Years (roughly), Burlington Rotary now meets every...
