Change of venue for Wednesday, July 6 meeting

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
(702) 431-4500

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.

President’s Message for the week of July the 4th 2016

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.

Sincerely Freda

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.

President Message for the week of June 15, 2016

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.image

President’s Message for the week of June 9 th

image from your president Freda ….

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.

President’s Message for the week of May 31st 2016 from our President Freda…..

June is Rotary Fellowships Month. Do you know what a Rotary Fellowship is? Rotary Fellowships are “international, independently organized groups of Rotarians, Rotarian spouses, and Rotaractors who share a common vocation or recreational interest.” They give you an opportunity to make new friends with like interests around the world. There are over sixty Rotary Fellowships around the world. If you are interested in getting involved, you can go to www.rotary.org/myrotary and search for Rotary Fellowships.
The first Rotary Fellowship was formed in 1928 by a group of Rotarians who were interested in learning the international language of Esperanto.
If you like to ski, there is an International Skiing Fellowship of Rotarians who will be getting together in Jackson Hole, WY in February 2017 as well as in Cortina D’Ampezzo, Italy in March 2017.
The Fellowship of Canoeing Rotarians not only has fun but also offers a service by organizing cleanups of polluted rivers.
Some of the other Rotary Fellowships are: beer, curling, chess, education, environment, jazz and magicians.
Rotary International has specific policies for forming a Rotary Fellowship before they will officially recognize the fellowship. To learn more about it, you can download the Rotary International Fellowship Handbook from www.rotary.org.

President’s Message For the week of May 17th

image….We just returned from, as Bill Copper says, the best project of our club – the Roadside Cleanup. While we were a small group, we were a mighty group. Bright and early on Saturday morning, Bob, Lanetta, Bill, Louisa, Dick and Freda met at our mile marker sign on Kyle Canyon Road for our donut and bottle of water. It was a beautiful day and there was still snow on the mountains. We set to work in groups of three and proceeded to clean up our two mile stretch of roadway. We believe that people have become more aware of tossing trash out of their cars because there were several areas where there was no trash. But we did manage to leave eleven orange bags of trash along the road to be picked up by the NVDOT. Dick found a treasure – a rusted church key (can opener) and Lanetta found a molded plastic toboggan. We ended our day with brunch at the Lodge at the top of Mt. Charleston where we all enjoyed a tasty meal and the fellowship of being with each other.
