The Meeting Opening

 

The meeting was called to order by Past President Jen Liu, at the Butte Creek Country Club.

 

He asked Daryll Polk to lead the pledge, which he did.  He then asked Jim Patterson to present the invocation, which he did.  

 

Jen then asked Larry Bradley to led us in singing a patriotic song.  Larry led us in “Jingle Bells”, not exactly a patriotic song, but good for the season.

Announcements

 

Crab Feed

Kristen Cargile reports that the Crab Feed is well on its way.

Kristen reports that Tickets for the Crab Feed can be purchased at Durham Tri Counties bank, Eventbrite or by contacting durhamrotaryca@gmail.com. There are less than 100 left, so hurry.

Individual tickets are $75 each.  A Table for 8 is $650.00.

Students of the Month

Larry Bradley reported that he had expected to have our Students of the Month for November and December in attendance, but both were playing basketball tonight.  So hopefully he will get them here at the next meeting.

District Grant Project

Larry also reported that the Fire Suppression System we are installing at the Memorial Hall should be fully installed by the Crab Feed.  This was our $40,000 District Grant project for this year.  We are being helped by the Paradise, Colusa and 2 Chico Clubs.

Paradise Crab Feed

Brian Gray of the Paradise Club announced that their Crab Feed will be on Saturday, February 11th, 2023, 5:30pm – 10:30pm, at the Veterans Memorial Hall – Paradise
What: Full bar, Great Crab, Shrimp and Tri Tip! Dessert!!  Music and dancing! Great Auction items!  Sponsors helping Paradise rebuild!
  He reports that they are looking for silent auction items, just a we are.  Other clubs in the area are helping them.

 

Introduction of Visitors.

 

In addition to Brian Gray of the Paradise Club, Rene Burrescia, new member of the Paradise Club, was also in attendance.

Recognitions

Larry Bradly was initially recognized $5 for, I believe, his introduction of Brian and Rene (I think, but I was having trouble hearing), and another $5 for not telling Jen where the Bell was.

The Grinder was auctioned off and Larry got it for $200 for he will miss Crab Feed to attend his grandson's wedding in Colorado.

Steve Plume contributed $100 for his 25th wedding anniversary.

Jim Patterson followed suit by contributing $100 for his 58th wedding anniversary.

I guess some members value their wedding anniversary more than one particular member in our club.

Next Meeting

The next meeting will be a Crab Feed Update meeting on January 3rd..  It will be at the Butte Creek Country Club. 

 

Tonight’s Meeting Program

Kristen Cargile reports that the plans for the Crab Feed are going well.  She reports that many tickets have already been sold.  To avoid past crowding, only 254 tickets will be sold and there are less than 100 left.  So, if you need tickets, hurry, before they run out.

She is still looking to securing more donations for the Crab Feed Silent Auction.  She requests that they be delivered by January 12th

 

Crab is a little harder to get this year, but the committee is looking at Shop and Save and Costco.  Getting it frozen may be cheaper.  It is still being explored.

On the day of the Crab Feed she is planning on starting the setting of the tables at noon.  She has Interact members arranged for to assist.

Membership

Bring guests who you think you can interest in becoming a member.  Think of business owners or managers to bring.  Your dinner and your guest’s dinner will be paid for by the Club.  Also, bring a guest to one of our occasional social gatherings in the Durham Park or a Pizza place (Monday Night Football).

Go to the following Rotary International web site for information on membership development:  https://my.rotary.org/en/learning-reference/learn-topic/membership .  From this website there is access to membership development and other related information

The Rotary Foundation Donations

You can make a difference in this world by helping people in need. Your gift can do some great things, from supplying filters that clean people’s drinking water to empowering local entrepreneurs to grow through business development training.

The Rotary Foundation will use your gift to fund the life-changing work of Rotary members who provide sustainable solutions to their communities’ most pressing needs. But we need help from people like you who will take action and give the gift of Rotary to make these projects possible.

When every Rotarian gives every year, no challenge is too great for us to make a difference. The minimum gift to The Rotary Foundation is $25.00.   An annual $100.00 gift is a sustaining member.  Once your donations accumulate to $1,000 you become a Paul Harris Fellow.

It is possible to learn more about The Rotary Foundation on the Rotary web site. 

Your gift can be made online or by sending Jessica Thorpe a check made out to The Rotary Foundation to Durham Rotary, P.O. Box 383, Durham, California 95958.

Must Be Present to Win Drawing:

 

Larry drew out John Bohannon’s name.  He was not present to win.

 

Conclusion

Jen then closed the meeting.

Dear Rotarians,

You can make a difference in this world by helping people in need. Your gift can deliver polio vaccines that protect children for a lifetime, provide clean water and hand washing stations, and supply medical equipment that gives newborns a healthy start.

The Rotary Foundation will use your gift to fund the life-changing work of Rotary members who provide sustainable solutions to their communities’ most pressing needs. But to take action and make these projects possible, we need help from people like you.

Please join us in making a difference by giving the gift of Rotary today.

Sincerely,
The Rotary Foundation

 

 

Until we eradicate polio, it is still a paralyzing threat to children everywhere. A gift of just $15 helps protect 5 children for life.

 

In the Dominican Republic, biosand water filters are used to provide clean water.

 

In Ecuador, grant funding provides vital personal protective equipment and training to help protect communities from COVID.

 

 

The WASH in Schools program provides hand washing stations, clean water, and teacher training to educate students on better hygiene practices.

 

Newborns start their lives healthy when hospitals have up-to-date equipment to care for babies in their first moments.

 

Tools and training support ecotourism businesses in Costa Rica and expand opportunities for local female entrepreneurs.
