Rotary Meetings Still Dark


With California's Shelter-in-place order still in effect,

our Club's regular meetings will remain dark.

 

President Tony Delevati is working with the Club Board of Directors, other Woodland Rotary Clubs, and District 5160 to determine if we can meet on-line. He will inform the Club of related details. 

 

  

 

 

Fire Engine Project Update

 

 

 Gary Wegener reports the project to transfer a local fire engine to Mexico is nearing its last stages, as the rig, known as the 'Triple Whammy' left Woodland on March 13. Some years ago the Woodland Fire Support Branch acquired and restored a stand-alone tanker trailer which was designed and built in 1972 by our local Springlake Fire Protection District. Though usable, the unit’s configuration was no longer insurable for operation in the United States. When the Woodland Fire Support Branch decided to get the unit transferred to a department that could use it, Rotary stepped in. Orinda Rotary, identified El Grullo, Mexico as the intended recipient. Our Club agreed with Orinda Rotary to split the $2500 cost of shipping the unit by semi-truck trailer to the Mexican border. Work on the complex details of transport, export/import, and ownership transfer aspects related to getting the unit to its new home is nearing completion. The Guadalajara Rotary Club is coordinating the various organizations in Mexico, getting commitments to help ensure the unit will be safely and efficiently put to its intended use. Members from Rio Vista and Tahoe City Rotary, who recently delivered a fire engine to Mulege in Baja California, have been a great help in navigating the border crossing logistics and ensuring the engine is ‘road ready’.  They took the rig to a Rotarian’s shop in Rio Vista for minor maintenance in preparation for shipping to San Diego. The current expectation is that the Triple Whammy will get turned over to the El Grullo bomberos (fire department) at the Mexico border by the end of March.

 

 How many Rotary Clubs can effectively partner on a project like this?  Five so far.

 

 

 

March 10th Meeting

 

Tom Bennett, Senior Vice President for Community Impact, United Way California Capital Region (UWCCR) was our guest speaker today. UWCCR merged with the former Woodland United Way last summer. Tom's presentation was about UWCCR's Square One projects and efforts to develop a Square One project locally. Thank you to Mark Ullrich for introducing our speaker.

 

 

President Tony produced photographic evidence President-elect Tabb Randolph did, in fact, show up for last week's District 5160 PETS (President Elects Training Seminar). Tabb can be seen in the upper right hand corner along with the 70+ other president-elects

from around the District.

 

 

Aniek Ramsay gave us an update on planning efforts underway for the 2020 Senior BBQ set for May 5 at Rotary Park. Chuck Maltese, who managed to draw a free lunch today, also told us we only have a few openings left for Rotary Mystery Golf trip on Wednesday, May 6, 2020.

 

 

President Tony auctioned off a few items that were left behind at the Dinner Auction. Nick Roncoroni got some of the wine his family had donated. Lisa Martinez picked up some olive oil. Gary Bunch obtained a Father Paddy's gift card his firm had donated. Blair Voelz also got some wine.  

 

 

Don Huff III has stopped shaking other people's hand these days. Not because of the virus going around. He heard there is a shortage on toilet paper! President-nominee Dan Stroski enjoyed a recent trip to Chicago where he taught his granddaughter to play cribbage - she won! Frank Gardner reported that due to the recent virus concerns, wife Shirley will celebrate her birthday tomorrow with a KFC chicken dinner at home. Bob Nakken had a great weekend at spring training in Arizona with family and his daughter, Assistant SF Giants Coach Alyssa showing them around.

 

 

 

March 3rd Meeting

 

Derrek Kaff, Police Chief, City of Woodland, was our guest speaker today giving us an update on key issues for the Police Department - homelessness, traffic and violent crime.

 

 

Foundation Chairman Tom Schwarzgruber announced President Tony Delevati has become a member of the Paul Harris Society pledging annual contributions of $1000 or more to the Rotary Foundation, and presented him with his Paul Harris Fellowship +4 pin. Tom then presented Romi and Karl Diekman with diamond pins signifying they have achieved the second level as Major Donors to the Foundation, which means their total contributions to the Foundation have reached $25,000 (all cash, no points).

 

 

 

Don Huff III reported that his dad, Don Huff Jr., shook so many hands at the Dinner Auction that he had to have a splint put on his wrist. Kris Kristensen was the subject of Why Rotary today. Daniel Jones couldn't attend the Dinner Auction because he was in Visalia being installed as a  State level representative of  the Young Farmers and Ranchers (a division of the Farm Bureau) for Solano, Contra Costa and Alameda counties. President-elect Tabb Randolph was a happy guy today, thanking everyone for making the Dinner Auction last Saturday successful. He reported we have grossed over $54,000 in the effort and he expects we will end up with net proceeds of at least $33,000.

 

 

Splinter writer Bob Nakken drew a free lunch today. Jan Voelz was introduced by her husband  Blair Voelz as his guest today.

Update From

Meet our Newest Member -

Marie Galbo

  

Marie Galbo was inducted as a new Club member on February 11, 2020. Marie, who comes to us from San Ramon, provided us with the following bio at our request. Please take a moment soon to welcome Marie to the Club.

  

Born in Trenton, New Jersey, Marie spent her early childhood on Long Island, New York. She attended high school and Cal State Northridge in Los Angeles prior to moving to the San Ramon Valley with her husband, Ed, and two children in 1976. Marie was always active in the community serving as PTA President, Cub Scout leader, various school board positions, and San Ramon Incorporation committee. But her most rewarding experience has been the last 25 years of membership with the San Ramon Rotary Club and serving as 2001-2002 President.

 

Marie was employed in mortgage lending for 20 years. She was an appraiser, mortgage broker, and a consultant for Washington Mutual Bank.

 

Ed passed in 2012 and Marie is now relocating to Woodland to be close to her children and grandchildren.

Read the Daily Democrat's article on the event. Congratulations Aniek!
