ROTARY CLUB OF WOODLAND
July 17th Meeting
Ray Johansen, DDS, of Citrus Heights and our own Dan Stroski gave us a program today about the Honor Flight they took together to Washington DC last month. Ray, pictured with his wife Mary Jane, was among a group of Sacramento area WWII & Korean War veterans honored for his service with an all expenses paid trip. More information about the Honor Flight Network can be seen at their website https://www.honorflight.org/.
The nearly smooth tones of Rotary Grace singers Dan Stroski, Marc Faye, Steve Venables, Mark Werum and Clancy Duppong got our vocal cords moving.
Despite a late start, President Mike Chandler led a good meeting today.
Maybe he should check his cell phone next time???
Immediate Past President Peter Holmes brought back a banner the Club received at the District's Installation & Awards night held in Woodland last weekend. The banner designates our new status at a 100% Paul Harris Fellow Club, one of only two in District 5160 this year. Peter thanked Club members for their work to achieve this goal.
Our own Past District Governor Karl Diekman was honored at the District Installation & Award night last Saturday for his work in supporting the Rotary Foundation.
Doyle Tooman was a guest of Roy Holmes today. Dick Hoppin is looking for volunteers to signup to work at the Rotary Beer Booth at next month's County Fair. Bob & Ruth Moeller recently celebrated their 69th wedding anniversary. Les Engelmann couldn't wait to draw a free lunch.

Steve Venables introduced former Club member David Wirth of Wirth Furniture who visited today. Jane O'Meara was happy her son go his paramedic's license, and she spent her birthday at the Boy Scout Camp at Wolfeborow where she was a teacher. Karl Diekman was our first fine master of the new year. Scott Johnston knew he was headed for a free lunch in today's raffle.
2017-18 Club President Peter Holmes found himself out of a job at the Club's Demotion held June 26 at the Hotel Woodland. But he will get over it. Here are some scenes from that event.
Woodland Healthcare/Dignity Health
The Woodland Rotary Endowment presented a check for $19,700 to the Woodland Healthcare Foundation at the Club's May 8th meeting. These funds were raised in the 2018 Dinner Auction and will assist in the purchase of a Cheetah Monitor to diagnose Sepsis.
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.'
