2019 Peach Sale Club Report

The three goals of the peach sale are

1) The Member involvement in a quick easy project with emphasis on new members
2) Fellowship on pickup day in a “working on a common goal” atmosphere
3) Raise funds to help our Denver Rotary Club Foundation and The Rotary Foundation.

This year 130 Club 31 members, sold or bought peaches.

Pick up day was a blast. With the help of a Forklift from Giles & Farris Machinery and Hassan Latif, Bill Imig, Steve Mast, Pete Wall, Chad Tyler, Rich Spong, Jack Green, Rick Leuthold, Jeff Kleinschmidt and his sons Ian and Isaac Kleinschmidt, 1440 boxes of Peaches were unloaded and loaded. 

Additionally, the following people came and volunteered their time to make this year’s Pickup Day and Pancake Breakfast a success:

PARKING: Harriet Downer, Susan Brushaber, Mark Donovan, Debbie Beasley, Anne McGihon, Drew Price and Lindsay Leuthold Rick’s daughter.
KITCHEN: Don Schlup, Virgil Scott, Kevin Shelledy, Melly Kinnard, Lisza Gulyas, Marjorie Lewis, Andrew Walker and Debby Kaufman.
PHOTOS: Todd Bacon and Bob Lowdermilk
CASHIERS: Darlene Mast, Lauren Mast, Peg Johnston and Marlene Wilkins
BREAKFAST SALES: Don Lewis and John Wilson.
If we failed to mention someone, please don’t hesitate to let us know.

After a small delay because of new equipment in the School Kitchen and the lack of “pancake inversion devises”, the Pancake and Peaches Breakfast went great and we served over 190 plates of Peaches and Pancakes.  A big Thanks to Roberts Italian Restaurant, a Deli in Littleton and the DTC for helping us order the breakfast supplies.

Special Thanks go to Jill Santuccio and Debby Kaufman for their work and organizational skills, Virgil Scott for running our kitchen, and our newly christened flapjack flipper Kevin Shelledy who benefited from the guidance and support of Chief Pancake Flipper Extraordinaire Don Schlup.

Again this year Case Collard continued what Tucker Troutman started at Dorsey and Whitney LLP, who used the opportunity to send clients Peaches…they bought 224 Boxes!

The total benefit to Our Denver Rotary Club Foundation and The Rotary Foundation should be over $21,000!

A BIG thank you again everyone who supported our peach sale through hands-on volunteering, contributions, partaking in the peach pancake breakfast and to everyone who bought peaches!

Respectfully,
