ROTARY CLUB OF BOCA RATON     

MEETING NEWSLETTER

WEDNESDAY, JULY 22nd, 2015
 
Club President Spencer Siegel called the meeting to order.
 
 
Henry Ferguson (left) gave a heartfelt Invocation and lead the Pledge to Allegiance.
 
 
Incredibly beautiful rendition of God Bless American was sung by the very talented Vanessa Simpson
 
 
Since the young age of nine years old Vanessa Simpson could not put down the microphone. She was excited and influenced by her older sister Christina Simpson to start singing. She would tag along to her older sisters vocal lessons and listen in on them. Once she started singing she did not stop and had to take her talents to the next level.  At the young age of 10 she joined a singing group that performed locally in South Florida.  Performing quickly became her passion.  Once she realized she could fearlessly perform she decided to enter into local singing competitions. She won runner up in South Florida Fair as well as runner up in Rotary Future Stars in which she sang on the famous Mizner Amphitheater stage.
This was only the beginning of her passion for competing.  At the age of sixteen years old she entered in the American Idol Experience. After auditioning with hundreds of people, waiting in long lines, and the rush of performing in front of hundreds of voters. She ended up taking first place and now owns the golden ticket of Hollywood Studios Disney. After long lines she earned a front line place to audition for the real American Idol.  Once you combine all of these wonderful experiences you will see why Vanessa Simpson cannot keep her feet off the stage.
Now, at the hopeful age of eighteen years old she continues to work hard to reach her dreams everyday. She will never give up on the joyous and wonderful gift God has blessed her with.
 
To hear her sing live visit her website www.vanessaesimpson.com  or to book her phone Eliot Weisman at 954-755-1700

Guest Speaker Dr. Charles Laser
 
Dr. Charles Laser, Wife Glenda and Spencer Siegel

Charles Laser is a true oil wildcatter—an independent oil and gas explorer—who's been working in the oil industry for over 40 years. President of Laser Exploration, Inc., an oil and gas exploration company based in Florida, Laser graduated from West Branch High School in West Branch, Michigan in 1952. He attended Michigan Technological University for two years and then spent another two years in the United States Army when he was honorably discharged in 1958.
After a brief stint in law enforcement and private retail investigations, he moved to California where he became the Finance Director of the Republican Party. He was appointed Executive Vice President of the GeoSpectra Corporation from 1976 through 1984, a leading geological-sensing company that works with all the major oil companies worldwide.
An active community member, Laser has participated in national and community politics, having previously served as the Executive Director of both the Saginaw County, Michigan and Washington, D.C. Republican Parties. Laser has received two honorary doctorate degrees, a Doctor of Law and Doctor of Divinity.
Laser formed his own company, Laser Exploration, Inc. in 1974 in Deerfield Beach, Florida and managed it while working for GeoSpectra. His company conducts oil and gas exploration across the United States, as well as buys and sells land leases. Laser's company has operations in Wyoming and Michigan, where the company owns several wells. Laser's oil and gas explorations have taken him to Illinois, Indiana, Texas, Colorado, Montana and more recently, Nevada. In 2006, Laser was named as a member of the Advisory Board for the Victory Capital Holdings Corporation, a publicly-traded company dedicated to energy technologies, based out of Nevada.
 
During his career, Laser has acquired more than 400,000 acres of gas and oil leases across the United States. He's been involved with four discoveries and has consulted with oil companies across the globe. Laser has worked with companies such as Exxon, Chevron, AMOCO, ARCO, Texaco, Mobil and DeBeers. He was also a strategic negotiator in a multi-million oil deal with a Canadian company involving 15 oil wells.

Guest Speakers Dr. Daniel C Flynn and Constance Scott
Florida Atlantic University Research Administration Division
 
 
Daniel C. Flynn, Ph.D., Vice President of Research, oversees research administration in the Division of Research at Florida Atlantic University.
Prior to joining FAU, Flynn served as Associate Dean for Research in the University of Delaware’s College of Health Sciences where he helped grow the research enterprise by 60 percent, promoted invention disclosures, faculty patent applications and developed undergraduate entrepreneurial and research programs. He served as the founding Associate Dean for Research and Economic Development at The Commonwealth Medical College, a new medical school in Scranton, PA.
Flynn spent 17 years at West Virginia University where he served as a Professor and Deputy Director of the Mary Babb Randolph Cancer Center. During his career, he has been awarded more than $40 million in research funding. The National Institutes of Health has funded Flynn’s research for more than 20 years. At WVU, he served as Director of a Center of Biomedical Research Excellence for Cancer Cell Biology, developed mentoring programs, organized core facilities and served as coordinator of the M.D./Ph.D. training program. He has published 72 research articles and has also served on an editorial board, advisory committees and study sections for NIH and the Association of American Medical Colleges. He earned his B.S. at the University of Maryland, College Park, Ph.D. at North Carolina State University and his post-doctoral work at the University of Virginia. 
 
Former Boca Raton Deputy Mayor Constance Scott has a new job. Just weeks after the term-limited Scott relinquished her seat on the City Council, she has been named as director of local relations for Florida Atlantic University. She began her new position at the school on April 13, earning an annual salary of $75,000 from the school.
 
 "I'm excited. FAU is really an integral part of our community," Scott said. "I'll bring my experience in policy and economic development and act as a liaison between the community and the university." Scott served two three-year terms on the City Council, for the past year as deputy mayor. A near-lifelong resident of the city and graduate of Boca Raton High School, she remembers as a child attending President Lyndon Johnson's dedication of the FAU campus before a crowd of 15,000 in 1964. Stacy Volnick, interim vice president for institutional advancement at FAU, says Scott "brings a diverse background of government and public policy experience. Her foundation of finance and economic development will be an asset to the day-to-day responsibilities." Volnick adds Scott will work "to ensure that FAU is fully engaged in the cities in which its campuses reside."
 
The Boca Raton-based school now has satellite campuses in Dania Beach, Davie, Fort Lauderdale, Jupiter and Harbor Branch.
 
Dr. Flynn and Ms. Scott provided an overview of the outstanding educational opportunities for student Health Care professionals and how impactful higher education is on our local economy and advanced medical administration.

ROTARY CLUB OF BOCA RATON     

MEETING NEWSLETTER

WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 12th, 2014
 
The meeting was called to order by Club President Mike Gora singing with Jim Gavrilos and Ken Samu.
Ken Samu gave a humble and thought provoking prayer and lead the Pledge to Allegiance 
 
"Don't Quit. When things go wrong, as they sometimes will. When the road you're trudging seems all up hill, When the funds are low, and the debts are high, And you want to smile, but you have to sigh, When care is pressing you down a bit, Rest if you must, but do not quit.
Life is queer with its twists and turns, As every one of us sometimes learns, and many a failure turns about, When he might have have won had he  stuck it out, Don't give up though the pace seems slow, You may succeed with another blow.
Success is failure turned inside out, The silver tint on the clouds of doubt, And you never can tell how close you are, It may be near when it seems so far, So stick to the fight when when you're hardest hit, It's when things seem worse, that you must not quit" KRISTONE
 
Boca Helping Hands Thanksgiving Basket Brigade was a HUGE success...forty baskets donated!!!!
We exceeded our goal of 28 baskets :-)
NINE Rotarians donated blood saving TWENTY_SEVEN lives!!!
 
 
Happy Dollars and Rotary Moments

Bringing education to rural Mexican area, one school at a time
When Mariana Day moved in 1989 to the small beach town of Chacala, in Nayarit, Mexico, she noticed that the surrounding rural areas struggled to maintain schools. And most children weren’t able to go beyond an eighth-grade education. Day, who is a member of the Rotary Club of Bahía de Jaltemba-La Peñita, in Nayarit, had started a local scholarship program before she joined Rotary. Called Changing Lives, the program provided students with high school tuition, uniforms, school supplies, and transportation. In addition, Rotary clubs from the United States and Mexico have been investing in the...
Member interview: Jay Cook helps young people through Rotary Youth Exchange
From the September 2015 issue of The Rotarian A Rotarian for nearly three decades, Jay Cook has helped hundreds of young people broaden their horizons through Rotary Youth Exchange. Recently, while working for the nonprofit Water Missions International, he’s turned his attention to bringing safe water and sanitation solutions to developing countries and disaster-stricken areas. Cook is a member of the Rotary Club of Charleston Breakfast and the Water and Sanitation Rotarian Action Group. THE ROTARIAN: How did you become involved with Rotary Youth Exchange? COOK: My club was hosting a young...
Technology: To please in a pod(cast)
From the September 2015 issue of The Rotarian When I was a college student in Wisconsin in the 1970s, those of us who worked at the 10-watt radio station hoped our signal would reach not only the 1,500 students on the Beloit College campus and the 35,000 residents of the town of Beloit but also the people in the cars and trucks passing by on the interstate 3 miles to the east – and possibly, late at night, the 150,000 who lived in the bustling metropolis of Rockford, Ill., 20 miles to the south. Some of us hoped to get jobs in radio after we graduated, and there was even talk about starting...
Polio: The Rotarian Conversation with Aseefa Bhutto Zardari
From the September 2015 issue of The Rotarian Before her family was forced into exile, before her mother was assassinated, before her father became president, Aseefa Bhutto Zardari was known for something simpler, but in some ways equally powerful: In 1994, she became the first child in Pakistan to receive the oral polio vaccine, as part of the country’s first National Immunization Day. Benazir Bhutto, then prime minister, gave the drops to her daughter herself, a compelling endorsement of the nascent campaign. “I was a baby at the time, so I don’t remember it,” says Bhutto Zardari, now 22. “...
