Englewood Rotary Club
Two presidents and a DG
When District Governor Ray Anderson, our esteemed leader, visited Englewood Rotary, he had to share the podium with Abraham Lincoln who was there to read the Gettysburg Address. Great fun!
 
Abe is the alter ego of our member Bruce Spear, who is a certified Lincoln Presenter. He tells the story of how he became Abe. While working in Washington, D.C., people would pass him on the street and say, "Hello, Mr. President." So he capitalized on that resemblance, and has a great time marching in parades (Englewood's, among them), talking to students and, of course, entertaining Englewood Rotary.  That's the "other" president, Patty Burnett in the middle. 
Basketballs, anyone? 
The Englewood High School Girls Basketball team's ball cage was falling apart, so we came to the rescue with this new equipment, shown with the team captain. We hope to partner with the team on some volunteer projects, as well as cheer them from the stands. 
 
We've also provided funding for team shirts to wear en route to games and at special events. 
 
It's a two-way partnership, as the girls recently helped sort and package winter clothes we purchased for 60 Head Start preschoolers at The Village for Early Childhood Education in Littleton -- a program we have supported with holiday gifts for 25 years.
