There was exciting news for The ROC this month! On April 11, David Bottroff, Executive Director for Reach-Out Colorado, was nominated and selected as one of six who received Garfield County Humanitarian of the Year Awards. The award was presented at a special program and dinner at the famous Colorado Hotel in Glenwood Springs, CO, sponsored by the Garfield County Human Services Commission and hosted by the three Garfield County Commissioners. You can log onto the Garfield county website, go to events then to Humanitarian Awards, or simply click on this link, http://www.garfield-county.com/hsc/humanitarian-service-awards.aspx to see the video that was prepared that introduced each of the 24 nominees that evening. This is a huge event each year in Garfield County and gets lots of press and recognition in the county.
The ROC is so blessed to receive this award because it shows that Garfield County recognizes the valuable service that is provided to our area by so many volunteers and contributors who make this ministry possible.
I was blessed to have my wife, Jeanne; my dad, Merton Bottroff and my daughter and her husband, Jennifer and Mike Glynn to be with me when the award was presented. Also present to support me were Sandy Peterson, The ROC Treasurer and her husband Rick, as well as good friend Rae Ann Bartels. Their attendance at the affair made me feel very supported and loved.
For those of you who pray for, financially support or volunteer for The ROC, I want you to know that you are a HUGE part of this award and that God has used you to help touch and change lives of families and little children who need an encouraging hand-up from time to time. Thank you for giving!
I will put some photos that were taken by the family on the website www.reach-out-colorado.org as well.
