George Berrettoni - Rest in Peace

1950-2018 

 

 

The Rotary Club of Woodland lost a beloved member Friday, September 20, 2018. George Berrettoni joined the Club in 1976 and served as Club President in 1997-98. Our thoughts go out to his wife Kathy and their wonderful family.

 

 

 

 

Redding Area Fire Victims Relief

 

In response to this summer’s devastating wildfires in Redding CA, members of the Rotary Club of Woodland have made personal financial donations which have been matched by the Woodland Rotary Endowment, to generate a total contribution of $5050 to the Shasta Regional Community Foundation’s (SRCF) Community Disaster Relief Fund with whom local Redding Rotary clubs are working in support of fire victims.

September 18th Meeting

 

President Mike led us in an Assembly to discuss business of the Club.

 

 

The news about our George Berrettoni is not good. He is no longer receiving visitors. Gary Bunch led a large group of members making donations in honor of George.

 

 

Today's guests included prospective member Lacey Hilliard of Lyon Real Estate in Woodland (with Mahlon Whittle). Also joining us today was Braden Victor (with Gary Wegener). Gary Wegener announced the birth of a new granddaughter weighing in at 10.5 lbs!!!

 

 

 

Don Huff III was the Recognition Chair today asking various questions about this date in history. Among his victims were Christian Sherrill, Chuck Moore, Tim Pettit, Gary Wirth, Mark Ullrich, Nick Roncoroni and Clyde Brooker. Mark Ullrich also put in a plug for the Woodland Chamber of Commerce's Pumpkin Pluck fundraiser coming up at the October 18th Farm City Banquet (see the Special Events Calendar for event details).

 


 

With the pot at $508 and 11 tickets left, Don Huff III managed to draw a free lunch!

 

 

 

 

Membership Drive -

Invite a Guest to a Club lunch

Club President Mike Chandler and Membership Chair Jennifer Ward are launching a membership drive. Invite someone you feel could be a good new member to a Club meeting this August or September, and the Club will pay their lunch. As noted above subsequent guest free lunches happen as they show interest and submit a membership application. Contact Jennifer if you have questions.

 

 

 

September 11th Meeting

 

Sarah Smith, Executive Director and teacher with Ark Preschool was our guest speaker today. Thank you Lori Ross for arranging and introducing this interesting program.

 

 

 

Mahlon Whittle finally got the chance to introduce his guest, and prospective new member, Lacey Hilliard. We were also pleased visiting Rotarian Babs Sandeen (West Sacramento) could join us today.

 

 

Lynn Smith of Welcome Home Housing, a non-profit organization providing affordable housing and services to mentally ill individuals, asked for contributions to their Shoe Collection fundraiser. You can bring your donations of 'gently worn' or new shoes to the Club's next meeting. More information about Welcome Home Housing and this fundraiser can be viewed at www.welcomehomehousing.org

 

 

Tom Schwarzgruber was in today's spotlight (looks comfortable with that, doesn't he?). Tom is a native Woodlander, having graduated from Holy Rosary and Woodland High School before earning his college degree at USF. He recently retired from his family's local gravel mining business when it was sold to Teichert. Dick Hoppin reported the Club earned $4,000 from member efforts at this year's Rotary Beer Booth.

 

 

With the pot at $470 Kevin Haarberg managed to draw a free lunch. Chuck Moore (Sep 6), Kevin Vaziri (Aug 25) and (long time, no see) Jim Nolan (Aug 17) were recognized for recent birthdays.

 

 

 

Dan Stroski led Recognition today with questions about 9/11. David Janes, Barbara Sonin, Dillon Dougherty and Clancy Duppong were among those who participated.

 

  

 

Beer Booth '18

 

 Scenes from the 2018 Rotary Beer Booth at the Yolo County Fair. Operated by the nine Rotary Clubs within Yolo County, President Mike  Chandler said initial reports indicate 2018 event proceeds exceeded $97,000. Thanks go to our Club's coordinator Dick Hoppin for his efforts.

Tanzania Children's Hospital Project

 

 

 

The new Digital X-ray building, at the Children's Hospital in Zinga, Tanzania, Africa, was recently opened. A $103,000 Rotary International Global Grant co-sponsored by all three Woodland Rotary clubs and others in our region, provided a digital x-ray system, a digital dental x-ray system and an ultrasound system, along with necessary training of local staff on their use, for this hospital.

 

'The primary objective of

this global grant is to improve access to diagnostic radiology services for the poor and underserved children of Tanzania.'
