After more than 400 entries, a new Colorado driver’s license design was chosen Monday after more than 55,000 Coloradans placed their votes.
Glenwood Springs resident Matt Nunez’s design will be featured on the front of the license, while 19-year-old Wellington resident Gabriel Dupon’s will be displayed on the back.
“The more I learn of the stories of Coloradans across our state, I always feel the sense of pride they have in calling Colorado their home,” said Gov. Jared Polis. “This contest, these new driver’s licenses are an extension of that pride.”
Nunez’s winning photo features Mount Sneffels, located west of Ouray and north of Telluride.
Nunez, 26, said that he is a part-time photographer, taking photos in his spare time, but the final product was a “labor of love,” as it took months to develop the photo.
“I am a proud Western Slope resident and although it’s not Hanging Lake, which is our local crown jewel, I’m glad that I was able to help make western Colorado represented on our driver’s license,” Nunez said.
Four GSHS graduating students have been selected by our Club to receive scholarships of $2000 each for the 2021-22 academic year.
A thank you to Steve Swanson and Matt Nunez who presented the awards at the high school scholarship event night. We will invite these outstanding students to attend one of our meetings as well as participate in upcoming service projects. As a way to extend Rotary’s service ethic, scholarship committee members will also stay in contact with our Rotary scholars to be part of their support structure. Thanks to the members of the Scholarship committee, as well as all club members who raised the money for these scholarships.
Thank you Heather Exby for providing this update.

We continue our tradition of an extra pat-on-the-back for some outstanding seniors from Glenwood Springs High School.  This year 14 seniors received a letter of congratulations from the club along with a $10 gift card.  We also sent thank you letters and gift cards to the three high school counselors. This was another way that Rotary could support our local businesses.  Thank you, Kristin DiBernardo and Debbie Wilde for all the work on this project. 
 
 
 Glenwood Noon Club Rotarians and Friends rang the bell to collect funds for the Salvation Army. 
2020 Kettle collection totaled $4,740.  That amount was matched and round-up by on of our club members. 
The Glenwood Noon Rotary Club presented a check in the amount of $10,000 to our local Salvation Army!
We want to thank Glenwood Wal-Mart for allowing us to do this good work at their store, and we want to thank our very generous friends and neighbors who put money in the kettle.  We will see you around the kettle again next year!
Club President Debbie Wilde, Event Chair Shelley Kaup and Blue Star Executive Director Bill Morris here with the Roaring Fork Valley Blue Star operations truck sponsored by Rotary.
We collected 12,077 pounds of material.  That equals:
  • Environmental impact of 16,834 pounds of greenhouse gas reductions
  • Social impact of 4 weeks of employment for a worker with disabilities
  • Economic impact of $3,846 in social return on investment (taxpayer savings)
 
Donations collected equaled $4,920.00.  Community members were very grateful for the opportunity to have a convenient location to recycle and the financial underwriting from our local Rotary Club and our Rotary District.
Thank you to event sponsors: Bank of Colorado, Kaup Engineering, Inc, and CMC
Thank you Rotary Volunteers: Event Chair - Shelley Kaup, Heather Exby, Doug Yajko, John Haines, Steve Shute, Myles Rovig, PJ Jaycox, John and Lily Stelzriede, Steve Swanson, John Comerford, Keith Eickelman, Cristina Gair, Joe Mueller, Debbie Wilde, Ken Robinson, Charlene Revoir.
