Peach Sales-3rd Grade Literacy
The Fort Collins Breakfast Rotary Club has turned $28,000 into $400,000 to fund international projects around the world. The original $28,000 has come from individual members and generous community members and businesses supporting the Club's local fund raising events such as the $10K Raffle, Field of Honor, and Peach Sales. Additional funding from The Rotary Foundation and from Rotary District 5440 grew the $28,000 to $400,000.

Andy Graham from Kinard Core Knowledge School is the teacher of the month for Rotary Club of FC- Breakfast. 

Andy shared is passion of teaching middle school age kids!

The Rotary Club of Fort Collins Breakfast is celebrating that its generous members have contributed over $1,000,000 to The Rotary Foundation since the club’s founding in 1989!
The mission of The Rotary Foundation helps Rotary members to advance world understanding, goodwill, and peace by improving health, providing quality education, improving the environment, and alleviating poverty.
Donations to The Rotary Foundation result in life changing impacts:
  • For as little as 60 cents, a child can be protected from polio.
  • $50 can provide clean water to help fight waterborne illness.
  • $500 can launch an antibullying campaign and create a safe environment for children.


The Third Annual Field of Honor® (FOH) will be held Memorial Day weekend, May 26 to May 29 at Fort Collins' Spring Canyon Park on West Horesetooth Road. Medallions that honor your hero, including military veterans, first responders, or personal heroes are available to purchase and will hang on one of the 500 American flags that will make up the field. Order medallions: www.rotaryfcbreakfast.org

  • Raising awareness of diversity,
  • Supporting of diversity, inclusion, and belonging within the club and in the club’s interaction with the community,
  • Liaising with the other club committees.

Thank you for supporting Rotary through the Love Our Community $10K Raffle!  
Rotarians are PEOPLE OF ACTION. Together, we build parks, award scholarships, develop youth leaders, support first responders and provide disaster relief, promote literacy, distribute food and have nearly eliminated polio worldwide.
Thank You to All Who Supported the 3rd Grade Literacy Project!
It was a successful day at the Holiday Twin Drive-In theater for the 2022 Peach Delivery. Close to 800 boxes of delicious Palisade peaches were loaded into cars along with Ginger & Baker peach pies and jalapeño jam, and Savory Spice peach spice.
Following delivery members of the club were actively volunteering and selling more peaches at the Fort Collins Peach Festival.

​​​​​​​Jennifer Jones, Rotary International’s first female president, is the perfect leader to spread the word about the good Rotary does in the world, and inspire its members to keep going.

Jones, 55, was born in Windsor, Ontario, and — save for a few post-college years working in the Turks and Caicos Islands and Manhattan — has lived there her whole life. The oldest of three children, she'd run lemonade stands to earn money to give to charity, and recalls organizing a carnival in her family's yard to benefit kids with muscular dystrophy. "Growing up, my parents had given us wings to do service in our community," she says. Today, her mom, dad, and one of her brothers and his wife are Rotarians. Her other brother created a painting that inspired Jones' presidential-theme ties and scarves.

New Members!
Deb Kelly joined Rotary to serve others and give back.  She admired Rotary from afar, but when she came to meetings, she saw that we are PEOPLE OF ACTION and wanted to be part of it!  

After being raised in MN, she moved to Fort Collins in 1987.  She was a single mom and raised her daughter, Amber, here. Amber is a graduate of Poudre School District, C.S.U and the U. of Michigan (degree in Social Work.)   Amber, her husband and two sons (10 and 7) live here.  Deb feels blessed to be in a community that is so family oriented.  

Deb also has a dad, stepmom, sister and brother in Alaska whom she usually visits annually.  

She is Vice President/Manager of Independent Financial Bank and has been a banker for 40 years!  Her resume includes a short stint as an EMT in Hawaii and Loveland. 

She loves to travel and saw the birth of a giraffe on a safari to Kenya and Tanzania. She loves the outdoors – hiking in the mountains or getting to the ocean.   And she tries to get some place warm every winter.   She enjoys movies and almost all major sports. 

Paul’s first impression of Rotary was that several men he grew up around and respected in Texas were Rotarians.    He joined Rotary because he wants to give back to our community and to be able to network with like-minded people. Married last April, he and wife Natalie are expecting their first child – a girl – in August!  She is a practicing attorney at CP2 and two dogs and two cats round out their family!

Paul is a a project manager for an IT Consulting Firm, Quisitive, a Premier Microsoft Partner that specializes in everything Microsoft.

He loves soccer (won the Texas State Championship his senior year).  Loves woodworking and traveling to experience new cultures and foods. He enjoys snowboarding, mountain biking, running, and gardening. He recently picked up a new hobby, One Wheeling.

Paul is both a proud Aggie (from Texas A&M) and a veteran of the U.S. Air Force. He served four years as an Airborne Battle Manager on the E-3 AWACS.
