Welcome to Culver City Rotary's newest member Darrel Menthe sponsored by Wendy Taylor.  Don Trepany was proud to induct Darrel into the the club.

Wednesday, July 23, 2014

By Dannie Cavanaugh

The Marine Corp taught President Joel to be on time and so sure enough he gaveled our meeting to order right at 12:15 PM, Pacific Standard Time. Bruce Jagger gave the Invocation, Chris King led the Pledge, and Chuck Perelman sang God Bless America, with the rest of us in tow. We had two guests - Carlos Vega from Wells Fargo Bank and Darrel Menthe, although he was only considered a guest for part of the meeting since he became a member at approximately 12:45 on Wednesday.

After a little time set aside for our meal, President Joel brought up Don Trepany who summoned Darrel Menthe and his sponsor Wendy Taylor to the podium for Darrel’s induction into the Club. Welcome to the Club Darrel – it is great to have you as a new member! By the way, The Book is at Darrel’s office which is located at 9696 Culver Blvd., Suite 301, Culver City, CA 90232. Please stop by and see his office.

Linda Forman will be sending out statements but it is very important to settle up any outstanding bills from last year so that the 2013-2014 books can be closed out.

President Joel spent a little time talking about some of our upcoming projects and events and it sounds like this will be another busy year. Right around the corner is the Club Assembly which will be held at the Chabola residence on Sunday, August 3rd. Later this month we will be involved in the Fiesta La Ballona – stay tuned for more information.

Kate Rosloff was our speaker for the day and she gave a polished and thoughtful presentation about the benefits of being a volunteer.

Remember – the meeting for this week is in the evening. Come to the Culver Hotel at 6:00 PM.

Polio vaccinators make significant headway in Nigeria
Nigeria is closer than ever to eradicating polio, riding a successful effort to reach children in seven northern states at highest risk for the disease. "Rotarians have [gone] into remote areas of the country by car, canoe, motorbike, and even on foot to ensure every child gets the vaccine," says Rotary's Nigeria PolioPlus Committee Chair Tunji Funsho. In Katsina state, members of the Nigeria PolioPlus Committee (NPPC) recently met with leaders of two communities notoriously opposed to immunization, mainly on religious grounds and in protest of the lack of basic health care. They persuaded...
Rotary Scholar’s unique ability in bringing clubs together
In a municipal hospital in Cubatão, Brazil, a new mammography machine funded by a Rotary global grant provides breast cancer screening to women who previously had to wait for weeks before they could get in for a checkup with a doctor. A Rotary global grant also funded training for medical staff and cancer awareness education for people in the community. Isis Mejias Carpio of Houston, studying at the University of São Paulo on a Rotary scholarship, played an instrumental role in bringing together Rotary clubs in two countries to make the grant possible. Members of the Rotary Club of Cubatão,...
Rick Burns’ thoughtful approach to Iraq and Afghanistan
Humanitarian Rick Burns, a retired civil affairs officer in the U.S. Army, has been helping people in the war-torn countries of Afghanistan and Iraq since 2003. He's seen a lot of good, but he's also seen what happens when good intentions go awry. Take the fertile grounds of Arghandab River Valley in Afghanistan, for example. Burns recalls an initiative to help fruit exporters become profitable again after the war. Cold storage facilities were built, but because no one considered the country's spotty electricity, the facilities ended up being too expensive to maintain. "We really want to make...
