Our program for the last meeting of the year began with Jim Nolin and a little recognition of those members who have done great work in the first 6 months of President Jan’s term including Jim Zeemer (Properities), Bev Noer and Bill Hatfield (programs), Joe Horizon and Megan Barich (Young Rotarians), Victoria Marshall (Pryde & Breakfast and a Book), Sandi Bentley (membership), Janet Greenfield and Brina Limon (speaker books and bookplates), Mark Heideman (photography), and Jerry Mihld (great smile at the reception desk) . The Rotary Players performed “2066 – Looking back on The Rotary Club of Redlands 2016” starring Neal Waner as Coach Cooter, our Illustrious President Jan Hudson as an Appalachian grannie and Larry Burgess as the Almighty of Rotary (wouldn’t you know). A fun time was had by all.
The “don’t miss this” program on January 12 will be delivered by Brad Howard, a Director for Rotary International. Brad will focus on the young professionals’ movement in Rotary and talk about how to integrate and energize people of all ages into clubs and Rotary at all levels. Brad is regarded as one of Rotary’s top trainers. For more than a decade, he has trained Rotary leadership at numerous events throughout the world and during two terms as an International Assembly Training Leader. As one of two global training leaders, he served an unprecedented three terms as International Assembly Seminar Trainer. Brad is a charter member of the Rotary Club of Oakland Uptown. Please be sure to attend this meeting if possible, and invite friends, Rotarians from other clubs, and prospective Rotarians of all ages to come, too. Prospective new RCOR members will be provided free lunch as is our club policy. Cost for others is $15.00. Complementary beverages will be provided to all who do not wish to have lunch.

NEW YEAR’S RESOLUTIONS
The following Club Past Presidents shared their New Year’s resolutions with the Spoke: Ray Watts – I resolve to stop writing things on my to-do list AFTER I do them just for the satisfaction of crossing them out. I resolve to sit at a new table each and every Thursday! I resolve to stop thinking that throwing on mushrooms makes my pizza healthy. I resolve to get to 100% attendance in 2017! Jim Pinder – Show up to Club more often than Sean Lugo (once per year would do it). Get my hair cut by a professional like Nathan Gonzales does (not sure I can afford it) Learn to be funny like our funniest PP, Jim Nolin (no chance of success). Take verbal abuse in style like Larry Burgess (remember Jim Nolin’s year?) Set my expectations low enough that they will be met and I won’t be disappointed (biggest key to success in life) Lynda Schauf – Laugh more! Enjoy friends and family! Travel more!
Jim Nolin – I already broke one New Year’s resolution to not cry in the dressing room at Sears. My other 2017 resolution is to work on my low self-esteem, but I don’t think I can do it.

PRESIDENTS CORNER January is Vocational Service Month ~ So let’s review what that means in Rotary. The Object of Rotary is a philosophical statement of Rotary’s purpose and the responsibilities of Rotarians. The concept of vocational service is rooted in the Second Object, which calls on Rotarians to “encourage and foster”:
• High ethical standards in business and professions
• The recognition of the worthiness of all useful occupations
• The dignifying of each Rotarian’s occupation as an opportunity to serve society As a Rotarian, how can you put these ideals into action? Consider these suggestions:
• Talk about your vocation in your club, and take time to learn about fellow members’ vocations.
• Use your professional skills to serve a community.
• Practice your profession with integrity, and inspire others to behave ethically through your own words and actions.
• Help a young person achieve his or her career aspirations.
• Guide and encourage others in their professional development. If you do any of these things, you are performing vocational service. And if vocational service motivates and energizes you, then you’re in the right place, because vocational service is the very essence of Rotary. It is what sets Rotary apart from other service organization. Let’s step up in 2017!
