Karen Baldwin presented Girl Scout Troop 1186.
Karen had a PowerPoint presentation, but, as is often the case, the computers weren’t cooperating!
Each of the Scouts made a brief presentation:
Olivia – has been a Scout since the 7th grade, has done 132 hours of community service and is working on her “Gold Award” – working to extend the Lending Library, and is working on extending it to the pre-school level.
Tia - has been a Girl Scout for 6 years, and reports the Troop has logged almost 1000 of community service! Tia likes serving the Hospital and Camp Paivika. She has earned her “Silver Award” and is working on the “Gold,” working to help animal shelters and a “How to take care of your Pet” program.
Cassidy – LOTS of service activities – Special Olympics, Camp Paivika, and honing her mediocre acting skills! She is working on a “Gold Award” with a focus on Fire Awareness.
Amber – Has been a Scout for 7 years, a great experience! They don’t sell cookies anymore – they leave that to the younger girls, but they are fundraising for a College visit trip. Her Gold Award is focused on the Pathways program – she hopes to extend it to the elementary level.
Thacker thanked the girls for all of their help at all of the community spaghetti dinners – which seem to have become a specialty! Barry Robinson also thanked them for all of the help at the Le Grande Picnic.
Troop Leader Karen reports that the group is 14 girls strong – which is a bit unusual for girls of their age – but very gratifying. Karen mentioned that the “Gold Award” in Girl Scouts is roughly equivalent to the Boy Scout Eagle Scout award, but is far rarer – she estimates that there is only one Gold Award for every 100 Eagle Scouts.
Congratulations to the girls of Troop 1186!




Bob Mosby reports that the “Relay for Life” event happened last week – Thanks to Denise for her participation and raising $500. The event raised $45,000 – Toni’s team was number 2 at $6,000! Bob

passed along the plaque for Rotary’s participation.


Fireside chat – Rudy and Karyn’s tomorrow evening, 6pm including dinner and drinks – 13 confirmed so far!
Our Exchange student Midori is back from her train tour, back on the mountain last Friday – Special thanks to Rudy and Karyn for opening their home to Midori. Deborah presented an “Above and Beyond” award to the Westervelt’s along with flowers.

Today’s speaker is our State Senator, The Honorable Mike Morrell.
Mike gave us a bit of background on himself, his family and the projects he has lined up in Sacramento. He spend some time talking about what he sees as the major problem with our bloated government – we evidently have amassed $679,000 in unfunded liabilities for every person in the U.S. Mike doesn’t see this as sustainable, and is looking for ways to fix the problem.
As far as California is concerned, the weather is great, but in a survey, comes in dead last as a desirable place to start a business. We have the highest taxes, the most regulations and fees, etc. etc. etc. We also account for 34% of the welfare in the US. Mike is working to find ways to help. One recent accomplishment is to get the so called fire fee into court – with a goal of labeling it what it is – a tax – and an illegal tax at that.
Mike spent a few minutes talking about ways that we can work to restore what the founders had in mind – a free and unfettered country.
Mike seemed to be a dedicated hard working public servant – a phrase he pointed out.

2016 PolaRotary Plunge
Pat Raines of the noon club presented our plungers with their Certificates of Valor for their efforts-
Plungers: Lyle, Laura, Denise, Thacker, Jake, Eric, Babe, Mary and Rudy.
Our group raised $3015 this year. Pat reports that they have raised $130,000 over the last 8 years!

Odyssey of the Mind Presentation
The students – Marla, Juliana, Ethan and Mackin presented the “Odyssey” project – a very interesting group founded to promote creative thinking in problem solving.
Sounds very interesting!

Retired District Governor Rudy presented Rotary Foundation for today’s program.
After a short video, Rudy described the way Rotarian’s can make a difference by including the Rotary Foundation in their estate and gift plans, he presented a PowerPoint program entitled “Leave Your Legacy.”
Rudy also mentioned that our club does very well in annual foundation giving – about $180 per member per year on average – and he challenged us to target $200 on average this year.
Rudy’s presentation included the different levels of recognition that can be earned at various gift levels. 


Retired President Lyle came forward to present our own Jill Neumen a special award for her dedicated service administering our scholarship program!


Jill says it is quite a program, not necessarily focused on the highest achieving students, but rather focusing on students that have a high sense of character, and some that could use a little help. Sometimes awards are just for career help, to give deserving students a little shove into life. Many times, one of our scholarships is a “surprise” to the student!


Almost new member Debbie Hopper will be taking over this year.


Armand plugged the new Tudor House production – “The Odd Couple.” Playing thru the 24th of July. GREAT acting. (Armand is one of the actors - Duh)

Everyone happily sang “Farewell to You” to Lyle and greeted Debra as the new President. Lyle and Rudy
had her solemnly swear, ring the bell and take over the gavel.




Paul from the Forest Lawn Boy Scouts mentioned the July 22 Forest Law Scout event. Registration begins at noon. Flyers were on the tables.


Rudy Westervelt inducted Steve Holstein and Rick Miller into their Rotary positions because they missed the Demotion Dinner.

Rory Balmer, the new Fine Meister, was not given the birthdays and anniversaries by the previous Fine Meister (AKA Ken McKay). Rory handed out new sheets for the members to fill out.
