Update From

Outbound Rotary Exchange Student

February 18th Meeting

 


UC Davis Men's Basketball Head Coach, and former Sacramento Kings player, Jim Les was our guest speaker today giving us a look into his career and the challenges of student athletes at UCD.

 

Chuck Maltese wants players to signup for the May 6th Mystery Golf Trip. Nick Roncoroni gave us an update on the Interact Club at Woodland High School which our Club supports. Steve Venables has a new book about Woodland - only $10 for Club members he says.

 

 

Foundation Chair Tom Schwarzgruber presents Bob Nakken with his Paul Harris +3 pin in recognition of his contributions to the Rotary Foundation. 

 

 

President-nominee Dan Stroski got results from his battle with AT&T. After a two week Jim Nolan was happy the jury awarded him $750,000!

 

 

Under Recognition questioning from Rotary District Foundation Chair Karl Diekman, Les Engelmann was reminded an important preparation for new club presidents is to set goals for the club in the coming year; Ken Nordgren knew that for a Club to be a 100% Paul Harris Sustaining Club all members need to make at least a $100 contribution to the Rotary Foundation within the year; Mark Werum knew that Tom Schwarzgruber will help you make a contribution to the Foundation; and Lisa Martinez found out that member support of the club president will make the club more vibrant.

 

 

 

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.

 

 

 

February 11th Meeting

 

Larry Love, Pastor, Woodland Christian Church, was our guest speaker today giving us his Thoughts on LOVE as we approach Valentine's Day. Thank you Gary Wegener for introducing our speaker.

 

 

As Club Historian, Steve Venables presented Immediate Past President Mike Chandler with a book of Splinter editions from Mike's year as Club President. President Tony Delevati welcomed Marie Galbo as our Club's newest member. Marie has recently relocated to Woodland and previously was a member of the San Ramon Rotary Club where she is a Past President. 
Please introduce yourself to Marie

 

 

 

President-elect Tabb Randolph was happy to get dinner and raffle prize tickets distributed to members today. He along with President-nominee Dan Stroski (oral auction), Mark Ullrich (sponsorships) and Kris Kristensen (silent auction/lucky draw) gave us updates on Dinner Auction preparations. Tabb is urging every member to go out and sell or buy at least two Winner's Choice Raffle tickets!

 

 


Visiting Rotarian Bryan MacConnell (Woodland Sunrise) joined us today. Lori Ross introduced her guests Jayne Williams and Jim Campos. Jim Campos 'rang the bell' with a contribution during Recognition today!

 

 

Mark Ullrich took the lead on today's Recognition, asking questions about Valentine's Day. Clyde Brooker learned that Cadbury was the first candy maker credited with making chocolate Valentines. Karl Diekman discovered that Necco's make the Valentine's heart candy.  Wendy Casas-Raviotta figured 50% of Americans celebrate Valentines; the correct answer was 55%

 


 David Pinto found out the typical male spends $130 on his Valentine. Roy Holmes learned that the Romans are considered the first anciet civilization to celebrate the concept of Valentines. Shawn Seyk discovered the first Valentine's card was sent in the year 1415. And Tom Schwarzgruber was informed that King Henry VIII of England was the first English monarch to recognize Valentine's Day.

 

 President Tony Delevati was happy he has already sold 9 Winner's Choice Raffle tickets. Peter Holmes was happy to have delegated the Fire Engine project to Gary Wegener. With the pot at $215 and 25 cards remaining, Jim Taylor drew a free lunch. Dick Hoppin told a 'true story' about how lawyers make money.
