Chuck's Corner  

Words of wisdom from our own  

Chuck Maltese

 

 

5/25/20 - Well, we took the plunge at my house today and cut each others’ hair.  In my case it didn’t take long.  I learned you should make very sure what a “little bit” means when cutting your wife’s hair.  It will be chaos when 300 Californians want their hair cut at the same time.  The type of scissors you use is important.  I tried a pair from my workshop—no good.  Went into the kitchen and used the pair we use for everything.  Question: why do we call one scissor a pair?


+ We have a sifter in the kitchen; apparently it has something to do with baking flour.


+  If you don't filter flour is that how you get:  large holes in a slice of bread or bad toast?


+  I got trapped into vacuuming the rug:  I commented on the lines left on the carpet after she vacuumed.  She said you could also make designs on the carpet and offered to show me.  Now, I have to vacuum.


+  While vacuuming I discovered how those marks were created on the floorboards


+  I saw women with a safety pin through her eyelid--I didn't know they could fall off.


+  If you get stopped by a cop----start coughing.


+  Could we combine Corona virus with Lyme disease?


+  Gave my wife a mud pack on her face--looked good for 2 days--then the mud fell off.


+  Decided to do a Juice Cleanse--who knew that you were to drink it. 

 

 

 

Shelter Scenes

What are some of our members doing during

Shelter-In-Place?

 

 Gary Wegener has been finishing up this dollhouse for his granddaughter. 

 

 

Alan Flory spent a few days on Iwo Jima during his service and thought these photos would be appropriate for Memorial Day. The flag sits on a monument honoring the U.S. Marines who fought there. The beach is where the Marines' landing took place. 

 

 

Former member Mahlon Whittle is enjoying his gardening in Hawaii.

May 12th Meeting

 

President Tony Delevati led today's session with an update on various Club and Rotary matters. All three Woodland Rotary clubs are encouraging members to 'Take Out Tuesday' - get food to go from local restaurants to provide support them with support early each week. President Tony is looking for the Club to use a smartphone application called Venmo so members can pay for regular Club expenses; more information will be made available. In response to the Honolulu Convention which had to be cancelled, Rotary International is putting together a 2020 Rotary Virtual Convention from June 20-26; more information can be viewed here.

 

 

In response to President Tony's request for stories on what members are doing during 'shelter in place', Blair Voelz provided pictures about the work he is doing at his rice fields.

 


More ' shelter in" photos from Blair Voelz: an April cabin hike in the Empire Mountain area & some photos from the Voelz's gardening.


 

 

Yolo County Sheriff Tom Lopez was our guest speaker for today's session. He gave us an overview of the Sheriff's responsibilities and some of the current issues he and his office are addressing. Thanks to President-nominee Dan Stroski for introducing Sheriff Lopez today.

 

 

  

May 5th Meeting

 

Local resident Lucinda Talkington was our guest speaker today, telling us about her March 2020 trip aboard the Grand Princess cruise ship traveling from San Francisco to Hawaii & Mexico when many passengers and crew became ill with the corona virus. Thank you Gary Wegener for arranging and introducing this interesting program.

 

 

Wendy Casas-Raviotta was happy her husband, Joseph Raviotta can now return to work as a tower crane operator in San Francisco.

 

 

Steve Venables, in his first time participating in the Club's virtual meetings, told us about his birthday on April 6 (1942, Visalia CA), and his April 15th wedding anniversary he shares with Lydia (1978, Carson City).

Mary Jo Holmes -

Rest in Peace

 1925-2020

 

We are saddened to learn Mary Jo Holmes, wife of Roy Holmes for more than 71 years, passed away on April 6. Mary Jo is shown here attending our Club's August 13th meeting with daughter Marjorie when Roy told us about his Honor Flight experience. Roy, who bravely joined April 7th's 'virtual' Club meeting, says services for Mary Jo will be scheduled sometime after the current shelter in place order is lifted.

Our thoughts and prayers are with Roy and the Holmes family.

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.

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.

  

 

Aniek Ramsay -

Chamber President

Our own Aniek Ramsay received the gavel as the 2020 President of the Woodland Chamber of Commerce, from outgoing President Jennifer Pike on January 31. Aniek says her goal will be to 'cultivate a renewed relevance' throughout the Chamber membership, local government and business community, and wants to tap the talents of young professionals. Read the Daily Democrat's article on the event. Congratulations Aniek!
