Julianne Raymond Preserves Club Banners
It has been a long time Rotary tradition to exchange Club banners when visiting another Club. The Rotary Club of Superior has 9 of the huge blue banners holding 350 individual Club banners from locations within the borders of the United States and around the world. The greatest volume of trading banners were collected from the travels of Bill Blair. At the time of Bill's death he had been a member for 56 years. During Julianne's program on October 19, she asked Club members to share some of their experiences when visiting other Clubs. Rod Campbell told of his trip to Haiti. Joe Till's story of a club in Milan Italy brought about chuckles as the club President in Milan could not understand why you would have a Rotary meeting without having wine.
Julianne Raymond has been working to preserve the banners and their history for a number of years. Before Julianne's participation in the project, Kevin Podvin was the Club member with the sole responsibility of attaching the small banners to the large ones. It is not an easy task! Originally the banners were attached by sewing them to the larger banner. Today they are attached with a tacking mechanism. Both Julianne and Kevin deserve our gratitude and respect for their leadership in this ongoing pursuit to preserve this part of the Club's history. They work tirelessly to keep them updated and intact.
Mark performed his first induction ceremony welcoming Sandie Zander. Mark is shown with Sandie and her sponsor Sue Heskin (right).
Superior Rotary's Mike Stiff
President Mark is encouraging Club members to present programs about their company / organization. On October 5 the Club was treated to a presentation by Mike Stiff on his company Hybridge Imaging & Document Management Solution. The business provides a document management service giving their commercial accounts the opportunity to go paperless. They scan both paper and microfilmed documents and index them according to the specifications of the client. Mike told the members the benefits of going paperless are:
- To reduce storage space
- Improve efficacy
- Create file intregration
- Access images anywhere, anytime
- Cut costs
- Insure regulatory compliance
