Rotary Conifer Evening Club Meetings
Mornings are difficult for some of us, that is why we have an evening club. Please join us at 5:30 PM every second and fourth Wednesday of the month at St. Laurence Episcopal Church, 26812 Barkley Rd. in Conifer. We have the same interests and ambitions as the morning club, a group that endeavors to help people in our local mountain community and around the world.

Conifer Interact Students Need Help for Kenya
Donate Here to Support the Conifer Interact Kenya Service Project:
 
 
Conifer Interact Club is raising money to support their international service project, Sasa Harambee. Sasa Harambee is a nonprofit organization that works hand-in-hand with the residents of Sigomere Ward (in rural, Western Kenya) to build local community capacity in multiple sectors. By stimulating, attracting and retaining both human and capital investment, Sasa Harambee, with the community, creates an environment that is vibrant and sustains all its members. Conifer High School Interact is working hand-in-hand with Sasa Harambee to help build a playground for disabled children in a rural village in Kenya, which will be completed in the summer of 2018.

Program: 3-D Printing!
Eric Halingstad from Conifer High School
 
The future is here, 3D printing!  Eric started at Conifer High School when it opened as a math teacher.  He always enjoyed mechanical engineering, technology and computers.  The classes he is teaching now, computer science and engineering technology, give his students college credit because they are in conjunction with Red Rocks Community College.  The engineering design classes include a number of different ares:  CAD, Solidworks, and independent studies---leading to certificates.
 
The 3-D printer at the high school allows students to build prototypes of items that can then be produced.  They can make games, puzzles, toys, tops for water bottles, and more.  Eric and his students have written printing guides for other students, including safety and maintenance information.
 
There are a variety of materials used in 3D printing:  polylactic acid, acrylonitrile butadiene styrene, polymide, and more.  The materials can be pliable or hard.  The printer does its job by printing in layers…some are 1/10 of a millimeter, stacked to create the form.  Other materials can be impregnated in the plastics. Even body parts are being constructed with the 3D printers!!

Ed Steinbrecker
Ed joined Rotary in 2000 (ish).  He likes to see things get done!  He likes to be involved in community service.  Rotary has helped him move out of introversion.  He grew up in Milwaukee and he was drawn education to be of service early in his developing years.  His teachers were his mentors, as the adults around him growing up were labor workers.  Education and Rotary both opened him up to helping students learn and find hope for their lives.
