Quota Members Enjoy A Field Trip
On August 1st, members toured Loveland Youth Gardeners, a non-profit dedicated to cultivating skills and stewardship in young people through sustainable gardening and healthy living practices. Each year QIFC allocates funds to help support Loveland Youth Gardeners.
During the tour, members had the opportunity to meet the amazing teens who participate in this program and their dedicated staff. After observing the teens at work, and hearing their personal stories regarding the program’s impact on their lives, members left feeling even more excited to continue their support of this community service.

QIFC July 27th Evening Meeting
As a response to our members to always “learn and know more”, our guest Rich Shannon provided information to support Colorado Cares, a healthcare initiative. Amendment 69 promotes a major change to health care services in Colorado. The result of years of discussion , the proposed amendment , if approved, would fundamentally change how health care is provided to all Colorado residents. The ongoing public debate has similarities to the discussion that prompted Social Security. As a major change to a critical public system, Quota members learned a new industry vocabulary and now are better acquainted with methods to discuss and evaluate the proposal.
During the meeting, Deb Courtner completed her application for membership into Quota International of Fort Collins. We welcome you with open arms and warm hearts, Deb.
Our Quota meetings are fun, informative and inspiring. We appreciate the opportunity to learn and grow personally, and professionally, each month while enjoying great food and friendship. Judy Warren, member, enjoys the tasty hors d’oeuvres prepared by members.
