The inimitable BOB VAN ROEKEL, one of our own stalwarts, will speak on a theme as announced by last week’s and month’s editor, close to his own heart, “What It Was Like To Dance With Jayne Mansfield”, or another subject of his own choosing. We fool you not. Or do we try? Wait and See


We were regaled last Thursday by one of our own (temporarily) (that is a Rotary Foundation scholar studying at Loma Linda) BOB WATHEY, native of Hastings, Sussex, England. His slides on his own home and city and mountaineering exploits in North Wales and Switzerland, coupled with comments, made an excellent program, and we appreciated his humor, friendship, and experiences in this country as well. The Foundation is at work, and helpfully, we agreed, I suspect.



The 3rd Annual Redlands Rotary-Kiwanis Golf Match and Award Dinner will be held on Wednesday, April 28, at Soboba Springs Country Club. You may pick up your entry form from BOB MORLEY or NORM BERNARD, and the sooner the better. Deadline for entries is Friday, April 23. The Old Men of Kiwanis are spoiling for this, so let’s let ‘em have it, and show no mercy!


The dynamic University of Redlands, headed by our own illustrious DOUG MOORE, with the able assistance of a number of other distinguished Rotarian faculty and administrators, is always coming up with something new. This time, it is a new “Reporter To Rotary”, MARTHA CARTER. She has been with us a couple of weeks, and it appears we will be able to get along with her, and hopefully, she with us. Welcome aboard, MARTHA, be at home, and enjoy. And thanks for keeping us informed. The U of R is an important part of our life, as well as yours.


We congratulate all the fine contestants in the recent Four Way Test Speech Contest, and wish them well. They had done their homework, and we have a right to be proud of them all. Especially, we salute JUDY GOTTLIEB, winner of our local contest, and who represented us so well at the District level. So far as we are concerned, she was the winner… sorry the judges did not agree!


We are sorry to announce the resignation of JOHN TUTTLE, of the Bank of Redlands, due to the business pressures.

Make these new members and wives feel at home.


Two days before our last meeting your Board met to discuss a variety of subjects. Always important is the Treasurer’s report, ably handled by our Treasurer, Cal Boothby. I’m pleased to share with you that most of our members have paid their dues, meaning that we have met Rotary International requirements and are in good financial condition. Our Foundation is also ready to make the actual scholarship distributions. It will, however, suffer a loss to its usual carryover from one Rotary year to another, due to our inability to have our normal annual fundraiser. If you remember what you gave to the Foundation at our 1st Mystery Dinner (everyone paid $90 per person to get in), November, 2019, why not try to match it before June arrives. We are making great headway in becoming the premier scholarship granting service club in our City and probably in our Rotary District.
