Get to know Carter Barger
 
Vocation:  Board Director & Executive Search Consultant (retired) 
 
When did you become a Rotarian and why did you join?
 
I joined the Concord, NH, Rotary Club in Feb. 1974.  My dad had been a Rotarian in our hometown of Bloomington/Normal, Illinois, so Rotary was in my culture.  I had recently started my company in NH and knew that the contacts and acquaintanceships made through Rotary would be beneficial. It was also a good opportunity to actively become a part of our newly adopted community. 
 
Tell us a little about yourself and your background in the community.
 
Kathy and I permanently relocated to Carbondale, CO, in August, 2015 after living in NH for 42 years.  Our son, Lee, and his family live in Glenwood Springs, and we had a vacation condo there from 2005-2014.  We love the climate, lifestyle, and skiing & biking this area has to offer. 
 
What is something most people do not know about you?
 
  1. I can fix/repair/remodel almost anything around a house.  I have installed over 20 windows of various types in properties I have owned.
  2. I once spoke Vietnamese fluently.
  3. I am addicted to Sudoku puzzles.
 
What do you do in your spare time?  Interests and/or hobbies.
 
Doing the stuff in #1 above, which most people don’t know about me!  Snowboarding, skiing, biking, tennis, and of course, Sudoku. 
 
What do you enjoy most about Rotary?  Share a good Rotary memory or moment.
 
The camaraderie with other Rotarians, visiting other Clubs when traveling.
 
As incoming President of the Concord Rotary Club, Kathy and I were sent to the Rotary International Convention.  Excited by the prospect of going to some exotic, foreign city, we were rewarded to go to the 1983 Convention in Kansas City, MO!  Hardly exotic, but a very enlightening and valuable experience.  One morning we went through the breakfast line at our hotel and looked around to join other Rotarians at their table.  A well-dressed black couple, which we assumed was from some African nation, was sitting alone, so we asked if we could sit with them.  Turned out they were from across the river in Kansas and were just staying at this hotel on their honeymoon.  I’m sure they were glad to get rid of us!

Dear Rotary Club members,

As your newly appointed Web Master my task is to allow all of our members to utilize more of the features of our site.  I need as much help as possible if we are to succeed.  If you are a program chair for a month please e-mail me the details of the speakers as soon as you know them.  This will allow me to update the calendar.  If you have news stories or photographs please send those as well. 


The following are some tips that might help you with the site.


1. The URL is gsrotary.org


2. Many features such the calendar, stories, history, etc.  can be accessed from the home page without logging into the site.


3. Your login id is a combination of your first initial, your last name and 3264, for example tedmonds3264.


4. If you have not logged into the site before your initial password is your initial and last name.


5. If your password doesn't work click on the area labeled "I forgot my password" and it will be e-mailed to you.


6. Once you have logged in you may then go to the area labeled "admin".  This area is only available to our members. It contains several features that are helpful to you.  You can view your own profile and create one of several directories of all of the club members.  You can check your own attendance record and advise the secretary of make ups that may have missed.  You can generate and send an e-mail to some or all of the members.


Please feel free to contact me with any suggestions, comments or support needs that you may have.  My contacts are tre@sopris.net, 945-0556

Thanks for the help

In these tight economic times, fewer people have money for themselves, much less to give to others. That is why Rotary likes to help the Salvation Army at Christmas to collect the change folks have left over after a trip to the store.

Raising more money then ever, and getting a larger percentage of participation from the club than any other single event outside Charter Night, a total hats off and three cheers to Jacqueline Skramstad, a new Rotarian for taking the lead on such an important Community project.
