Founded in 1975 as the Las Vegas Paradise Rotary Club, which was one of ten local area clubs at the time. In 2003, the Paradise and University Rotary clubs merged to form the Las Vegas Central Rotary Club.
WHAT IS ROTARY:
1. We’re a leadership organization…
2. We’re made up of local business, professional and civic leaders…
3. We meet regularly, get to know each other, form friendships and through that, we’re able to get things done in our community…
4. And we have fun…
We meet every Wednesday at 12:15 at the Las Vegas Country Club please come join us and find out what Rotary is all about. The LVCC is directly behind the (Old Hilton & LHV ) now know as the Westgate Hotel & Casino

This Wednesday, July 20th, is our first Board meeting of the new Rotary year. We have a lot of business to take care of. We have to form committees, among them being Membership, Fundraising, Community Service, Administrative Service, Vocational Service, New Generations, Grants, and more.
A note to all Board members: please come to the meeting with your ideas. Two areas we really have to focus on are Membership and Fundraising, but all of the above are important. Since our funds are limited, we will have to decide where we want to focus most of our attention with regard to the projects we get involved in. I am looking forward to a productive meeting on Wednesday evening.

Just reminding everyone who was at the meeting last week and notifying those who were not at the meeting last week that we will be meeting at the following location this Wednesday, July 6, 2016, at Noon:
Fogo de Chao
360 E. Flamingo Road
Las Vegas, NV 89169
The Country Club arranged this location for us as the Country Club will be closed for repairs to their HVAC system. The Country Club is paying the difference between what we pay to them for our lunch and what the cost for Fogo de Chao’s will be.
The restaurant is located next to McCormick & Schmick on Flamingo Road between Paradise Road and Howard Hughes Parkway. It is on the north side of Flamingo.
Hope to see everyone there.
A message from President Frida second consec term
This is our first meeting of the new Rotary year. RI President John F. Germ has chosen “Rotary Serving Humanity” as his theme for this year. Our club has served humanity over the years through our numerous projects in our community and our international projects. I believe that each of you joined Rotary so you could make a difference by helping those who are unable to help themselves. Several of you participate in other organizations that assist specific sectors of our community. Others may be aware of ongoing issues in our surrounding communities where we could be of assistance. Please bring your ideas to me or another Board member so we can see if it is something where our club can help. I look forward to hearing from you and working with you in this new Rotary year.
We are looking forward to very productive New Rotary Year.
I just want to thank all of you who came to my Debunking Party on Saturday evening at Bill Copper’s home. I’m sure everyone had a really enjoyable time. The food was delicious; the meat nearly fell off the ribs; and I think we are now all fans of kale slaw. Several members had more than one serving and we were still able to bring home a lot of leftovers. As always, Bill was a gracious host; Bob made sure we all had enough to drink, and Al told us of a new project that we can get involved in with the people at the Stupak Community Center. Thank you all for supporting me during my year as Club President. I hope this upcoming year will be an even more successful year. Oh, and don’t forget to look at the photos taken by Bill during the party.
Message for President Freda
I felt I should write something after the horrible mass killings in Orlando
but I couldn’t find the right words to say, so I found this poem that
expresses my thoughts.
“For A Time of Sorrow”
By Howard Thurman
I share with you the agony of your grief,
The anguish of your heart finds echo in my own.
I know I cannot enter all you feel
Nor bear with you the burden of your pain;
I can but offer what my love does give:
The strength of caring,
The warmth of one who seeks to understand
The silent storm-swept barrenness of so great a loss.
This I do in quiet ways,
That on your lonely path
You may not walk alone.
Last week Sharon Spann, one of our newer members, presented her Craft Talk when our scheduled speaker was unable to attend our meeting. I found Sharon’s presentation to be very interesting and informative. There was so much information about her that I did not know. While Craft Talks are one of the requirements for new member to obtain their Blue Badges, I think it is a good idea for our members who have been in Rotary for many years to also present their Craft Talks to the club. This is an easy way for all of our members to learn about each other and it will enable them to seek out services provided by members of the club. While many of our members are retired or semi-retired, they all have a lot of knowledge and stories about their lives to share with our club members. Your story need only be approximately ten minutes long. So when you are approached to present a Craft Talk to the club, please be happy to share your story with us.
