ROTARY ROTATES to Centennial Airport
Wednesday, Sept. 28
 
This is a special event for the members and family of Englewood Rotary. We call it Rotary Rotates, as we move, or rotate, to a new venue for a special experience. In this case, it's a tour of Centennial Airport. 
 
FOR THE TOUR:
 
Meet at 4 p.m. at the air traffic control tower. The physical address is 7800 S. Peoria St., Englewood, CO 80112.  If you plan to use a GPS, please use the exact address.  Siri apparently is unhelpful.
 
Come like you are on your way to the Perfect Landing (Peoria Street). However, rather than turning into the Denver JetCenter parking lot, keep driving south on Peoria toward the air traffic control tower.
 
As you approach the tower, you will enter a roundabout. To your right, you will see the parking lot. Park there, and then come to the pedestrian gate at the base of the tower. If weather allows, we will wait until everyone has arrived and enter as a group.
 
Next we push the intercom box that says "AIRPORT AUTHORITY" and announce ourselves as the tour group. Leading the tour will be Deb Smith, the airport’s Public Information Officer/Media and Communications Manager, and a fan of Bob Burdick, with whom she worked when he consulted at Colorado Community Newspapers a few years ago. She will greet us and escort us to the Wright Brothers Room where our tour will begin with a history of the airport--and some “tall tales.”
 
We will then go back down and board the tour bus for the airfield tour.  The tour will end in the same lot with our cars, so we can then drive to the Perfect Landing.
Signed up for the tour:
Bob and Patty, Jim and Stacey, Franz, Dick, Bruce and Linda, Judy, Katie (Gueoul volunteer), Frank, Glory, Vee and John, Frank. One slot is still available.
 
FOR THE DINNER:
Reservations at 5 p.m. for 20 are in the name of Patty Burnett. This will be a Dutch Treat event, though the club will supplement $20 for each member. 
 
Signed up for dinner and not the tour:
Susan, Dawn, Joanne C. , Josh and Jane, Peter.
