We had an incredible time celebrating the achievements of 2023-2024 and expressing our gratitude to President Owen Schoolsky and the board for their outstanding leadership of the Tri-Lakes Dynamic Rotary Club. The evening was filled with excitement as we welcomed our new President, Brenda Small, and introduced the dynamic new board for 2024-2025. Held on Saturday, September 7, 2024, at Biaggi's in Colorado Springs, the night was full of fun, fellowship, festivities, and the magic of Rotary. Nicole Schoolsky was honored as Rotarian of the Year, and President Brenda inducted Rob as the newest member of our club as her first official act. We were also delighted to be joined by special guests: Brenda's family, RI 5470 District Governor Whitney Smythe-Smith, Tarah King,  Becky Kiser and her husband, Greg Sund, and Monument Hill Kiwanis member RF. It was truly a magical night.
Happy 4th of July from Monument, Colorado—home to the biggest small-town parade in the US! The Tri-Lakes Dynamic Rotary Club was in full swing, networking and selling “chances” for the upcoming 2nd Annual Golf Ball Drop on September 7th, 2024 for the Heart of Monument Play Park Event. Families had a blast with golf ball toss games and learning about what our local Rotary club has been doing in our communities. Teaming up with Kiwanis to help build a community play park area for everyone. (Photo on right: Monument Kiwanis Pres. Scott and Tri-Lakes Dynamic Rotary Club's Pres. Brenda Small)

On February 8, 2024, the Rotary Club of Puerto Vallarta presented the bus keys. The next day, they handed over a van/bus to the school an provided us with the opportunity to meet some of the school staff and morning shift students via Zoom. Khurshid Qureshi (Tri-Lakes)  gave a brief tour of the school facilities. This van was purchased with contributions from Tri-Lakes Dynamic Rotary, Broadmoor Rotary, and the Rotary Club of Colorado Springs. An attachment with signage for the van is included. Thank you all. Additionally, books and school supplies were donated to the students.
On February 2nd, the Rotary Club of Colorado Springs' World Peace and Understanding Luncheon, featured a remarkable guest speaker, LeAnn Thieman. Our very own, Brenda Small- President-Elect, was one of the organizers. There wasn't a dry eye in the room and she was an awesome speaker who had everybody's attention every second until the end of the program.
"Who is LeAnn Thieman? LeAnn, a celebrated international keynote speaker, author, and nurse, experienced an incredible journey during the Vietnam Orphan Airlift in 1975. This harrowing experience, where she played a pivotal role in rescuing 300 babies as Saigon fell, is vividly recounted in her book, "This Must Be My Brother." 
Billy Jack and Jeanne from The Remount Foundation came to share about the foundation’s work in supporting service members, veterans, first responders, and their families to find healing from the effects of PTSD, TBI, and other life trauma through equine therapy.
