Your editor also had an announcement.  I have noticed that some other members are taking pictures at the meetings.  If you want them published in the Rowel, just email them to me or send them to my cell phone (530-520-1641).  Thanks, I think, to Jen for the photo here.

Mike Wacker reported that Durham Rotary’s “Rotary Helping Students Rebound” program has raised approximately $250,000, distributed 4,400 backpacks to Paradise student, and distributed $40,000 worth of supplies that Roy Ellis obtained from his distributers.  Most of the funds collected have been distributed where needed in areas where schools were destroyed or damaged by the Camp Fire, which affected 2217 students.

 

We now have approximately $58,000 in funds left. It was determined to divided it up into gifts of $450 to each of the teachers and let the teachers determine what it needs to be spent on for their students.

 

The program tonight was the distribution of those funds to teachers, principals and superintendents for distribution to teachers, as follows:.

 

 

Josh Peete, Superintendent Golden Feather Union Elementary District and Principal of Concow School

 

 

 

 

Casey Taylor, Executive Director, Achieve Charter School

All the above with a “big” check.

Twenty Years Ago

 

President Dave opened the meeting.  Jim Patterson gave the invocation. (I could not hear who led the pledge).

 

The meeting was a wonderful Valentine’s day dinner.  Nearly all members attending brought their spouse.  Well, Larry Bradley brought his daughter, Sarah, who he tried to pass off as a visiting Rotarian.  She is the current president of the Durham High Interact Club.

 

There were three visiting Rotarians, Kendal Cornell and Dale Penne of the Chico Club and Sandy Haskins of the Paradise Club.

 

The entertainment for the evening was first a quartet from the Bidwell Generals.  Then nearly an hour of music from Jazz group of the Durham High School Band.  Very good and very entertaining.

 

Thanks to Larry Bradley and Don McNelis for arranging this evening.

Incoming RI president announces 2020-21 presidential theme

By Ryan Hyland

 

Rotary International President-elect Holger Knaack is encouraging Rotarians to seize the many opportunities Rotary offers to enrich their lives and the communities they serve.

Knaack, a member of the Rotary Club of Herzogtum Lauenburg-Mölln, Germany, revealed the 2020-21 presidential theme, Rotary Opens Opportunities, to incoming district governors at the Rotary International Assembly in San Diego, California, USA, on 20 January.

Rotary isn’t just a club for people to join, but rather “an invitation to endless opportunities,” said Knaack, who becomes president on 1 July. He emphasized that Rotary creates pathways for members to improve their lives and the lives of those they help through service projects.

“We believe that our acts of service, big and small, create opportunities for people who need our help,” Knaack said. He added that Rotary creates leadership opportunities and gives members the chance to travel the world to put their service ideas into action and make lifelong connections. “Everything we do opens another opportunity for someone, somewhere,” said Knaack.

Changing for the future

Knaack also urged members to embrace change so Rotary can expand and thrive. Rather than setting a specific target for increasing the number of members, Knaack said he’s asking clubs and districts to think about how to grow in a sustainable and organic way. He wants clubs to focus on keeping current members engaged and adding new members who are the right fit for their club.

We will capture this moment to grow Rotary, making it stronger, more adaptable, and even more aligned with our core values.

“We need to stop thinking of new members as people we can mark down as statistics and then forget about,” Knaack said. “Every new member changes us a little bit. That person brings a new perspective, new experiences. We need to embrace this constant renewal. We will grow stronger as we learn from new members.”

Knaack pointed to Rotary’s Action Plan as a compass that can guide clubs as they evolve. He recommended that every club have a strategic plan meeting at least once a year. At that meeting, clubs should ask where they want to be in five years and how they can bring more value to their members.

Knaack also wants to see more women in leadership roles and see Rotaractors play an integral role in how new clubs are formed and run. He encouraged district leaders to create new club models and rethink what it means to be in Rotary, and allow young people to be the architects of these new clubs.

“We have to be open to new approaches, and creating unique clubs for younger people is just part of the solution,” said Knaack. “Let Rotaractors decide what kind of Rotary experience works best for them. These young people are bright, energetic, and they get things done.”

In stressing the need for Rotary members to embrace change, Knaack noted that time won’t slow down for Rotary: “We will not let rapid change defeat us. We will capture this moment to grow Rotary, making it stronger, more adaptable, and even more aligned with our core values.”
