Splendid weather and a big turnout made for a great morning at the Club’s first annual Giant Household and Yard Sale on May 6.  From boats to Pilates machines, guitars to dinner tables, the Club found buyers for hundreds of items donated by members and the larger Boulder community. Nearly 70 Rotarians and friends combined to raise money and pursue our goal of “Service Above Self.”

At a recent meeting, Merrill Glustrom and Jim Rudosky reported on yet another Preserve Planet Earth project, this one being to plan and carry out a symposium at the upcoming District 5450 Conference.

While we greatly appreciate the Avalon’s gracious hosting of our club meetings ever since the 2013 flood forced us from the Spice of Life Event Center, it was a joyous thing to be at our new location---the Boulder JCC. We have John Regur, Sally Brown, and especially Mike Brady to thank for all the work they did searching for, identifying, and then working out the details for our new location. Our new meeting room is light (but not too bright!), airy, spacious, and beautiful, and also inspirational.

In Peru, women suffer higher rates of poverty and unemployment than men. About 50 percent of Peruvian women in the Sacred Valley region, which lies outside Cusco, will suffer severe physical or sexual partner abuse during their lifetimes. In 2012, members of the Rotary Club of Boulder’s New Generations pilot satellite club came up with a plan to address all of those problems by concentrating on empowering local women – specifically in their ability to make and act upon their decisions.
