Spoke Newsletter – 05/15/2014

Sherli Leonard, Director of the Redlands Conservancy will discuss the newest initiatives concerning the Zanja trail and other projects that will improve the quality of life for Redlands citizens.

LAST WEEK
Our own JERRY BEAN and SHIRLEY HARRY, cofounders of the Redlands Arts shared a dream to start this wonderful cultural event. The 2014 Redlands Festival of Arts will include both visual and performing arts. The visual arts will include a juried art show with $6,000 in prizes and a variety of both two-dimensional and three-dimensional works. JERRY & Team organize The performing arts including The Miles Brothers Quartet, The Tornados Block Party & tinkling toes from the Arthur Murray Studio! SHIRLEY’s eyes sparkled with enthusiasm while updating us on the mixed media, sculptures, pottery, etc that will be represented. Come join the Fun on May 24th or 25th 10-am – 5pm in Historical Smiley Park. Don’t forget the expanded TOM CUTLER beer garden!

NEXT WEEK
A special musical treat! Rotarians will adjourn to Kimberly Hall at the First Congregational Church to hear a special performance of 8 Hand piano by musicians Mary Lou Jones, Lorraine Jorgensen, Sally Rehfeldt, and Nelda Stuck.

SAVE THE DATES!
Thursday, May 29 from 5-7 p.m. at the Cutler Group 201 Olive Ave, Corner of Cajon. Spouses or significant others welcome!! Please RSVP with CHERYL RIGGS ASAP!

Next RCOR Field Trip is to the Rotary Learning Institute on May 17 in Lake Elsinore. Breakfast and lunch, scaled education about Rotary and the Club covers the expenses. Reserve now!

Keep in mind June is rapidly approaching and a Demotion Party is on the horizon.

NOTABLES & WHAT NOT’S
Many our own Rotarians were sighted at the Presentation of the Roy Coble Service to Youth Award luncheon on Tuesday. With STAN WEISSER once again representing us well as the Master of Ceremonies & DARWIN BARNETT reminding us of the good works of Roy Coble ~ while JANET, CAL, RAY, ALLAN, MARVIN, JAN & JIM NOLIN all debated on who would better perform with the “Great All-AmericanYCMA Youth Circus”. We all congratulate Jerry Fields of the Noon Kiwanis Club for being honored as this years’ recipient of the Roy Coble Service to Youth Award!

Screen Shot 2014-05-16 at 11.07.03 AMEven though Robin Hood has not yet been demoted, YET, JIM NOLIN has left the man in tights in his shadow and is basically the President. JIM’s Presidency will be larger than life, and likely last a lifetime.  At least it will seem that way to most of us J.

See PREZ ELECT JIM NOLIN if you have not signed up for your committee position for next year: all hands needed! If you have not signed your Foundations pledge for next year, go see CAL.

Page three of the latest District 5330 Newsletter has a glorious photo of yours truly in his green hat leading the Sunday lunch meeting at the District Conference. One of the more delicate issues is how to recognize/fine Rotarians when members from 60 different clubs could be present. For most, a fine of $20 is sufficient. But that just won’t due.

Screen Shot 2014-05-16 at 11.07.17 AMBob, from an unspecified San Bernardino Club, was the most seasoned Rotarian in attendance at 96-years-old. He is the official photographer of the event and didn’t mind climbing up on a ladder to get a good outdoor group shot. Not to worry
LEROY HANSBERGER. He may be one year older but he has been in Rotary about five years fewer than you. I recognized Bob for his years of service and dedication to the cause. District Governor-Elect Shab El Awar paid the $100 fine. Bob promptly stood back up and matched it.

Thank you JIM NOLIN for covering for me last week. I shudder to think of how my reputation was impugned.
