What is the Cherry Creek Valley Rotary Club of Parker
Rotary is a global network of 1.2 million neighbors, friends, leaders, and problem-solvers who come together to make positive, lasting change in communities at home and abroad.
Solving real problems takes real commitment and vision. For more than 110 years, Rotary members have used their passion, energy, and intelligence to take action on sustainable projects. From literacy and peace to water and health, we are always working to better our world, and we stay committed to the end.
The Cherry Creek Valley Rotary Club of Parker was charted in June 2006. Our origins began with our parent club, Parker Rotary, when their members realized the need for a noon-time club to serve members who could not attend morning meetings.
Our membership and goals are unique to our club and are based on supporting our local community of Parker Colorado and supporting the tenets of Rotary.
Sam Adams always has a story to tell.
Some of his stories are born from three decades of time spent as an award-winning sport journalist. Most are humor-filled observations from his daily life encounters and are told from the stage with his prize winning style of comedy that is 100-percent profanity-free. He’s been called a Renaissance Man, which is a befitting label.
Sam Adams is a headline performer and featured speaker at corporate events across the United States. In addition to his careers in journalism and entertainment he is a motivational public speaker and a television commercial actor.
Highlights of Sam Adams’ Career:
Motivational speaker keynote is titled, ‘Going Up: Taking Steps to Elevate Your Levels of Success’. A keynote offering intriguing reference for achieving success taken from personal and professional odysseys – with humorous stories, insightful tips from numerous encounters with an A-List of stars ranging from professional sports Hall of Famers to world-renown award-winning entertainers.
2019 Sam was honored by the prestigious Denver Press Club with a Hall of Fame induction. He has covered championship sporting events at all levels – most notable four Super Bowls and two Olympiads.
Summer 2018 – ‘True Color’ video clip went viral, with more than 10 million Facebook views in less than 72 hours. Since, the video clip has amassed more than 31 million Facebook views.
In Sam’s book, ‘If You Don’t Believe Me: Lessons Learned from Listening To The Greats’, John Elway offered this tribute….”Through the ups and downs of an NFL career, I developed great trust, respect and appreciation for him. Blending an uncanny ability to mix humor with keen insight and knowledge, Sam is a one-of-a-kind storyteller.”
Talented. Versatile. Accomplished. Sam Adams is quite a story himself.
