Mandy Krzeminski, Occupational Therapist and operator of “The Silly Room” was todays presenter.
Mandy specializes in pediatric therapy – ages 0 to 21. Her mission is to be “A positive Influence – One Person at a Time!”
If we didn’t know what an Occupational Therapist did, we do now! Mandy focuses on young people that have problems doing normal, everyday items like getting dressed or riding in a car. Many of her patients have problems like autism, and have very special problems that she is trained to work with. Many times, her therapy crosses over with physical therapy as she teaches her patients alternative ways to do things.
Mandy read a few letters from parents of patients – her results are amazing!
Mandy mentioned that she could use some help with special cases, as they cannot always afford to pay for services. Mandy is fine doing pro-bono work, but could use some help covering costs!
Thanks for all that you do, Mandy!

Rudy did a PRYDE wrap-up – with a video and the presence of three of the attendees – Laura Dyberg worked as a Tribal Elder – and had a great time!

Race Driver and Rim Honor Student McKensie Eshleman presented today – and what an interesting hobby McKensie has!
McKensie is a 16 year old race car driver – and has apparently done very well in the circuit! She races in the “Outlaw” division, and has been in the top 10 in about 40 races, has finishes. She has one win and a 2nd overall to her credit!
McKensie’s home track is Irwindale, but most races happen at the Orange Show track.
McKensie’s dad and grandfather are evidently drivers as well – which led her to the sport.
Thanks for visiting with us!

Rory has his Bachelor’s Degree!! YEA!
Jill set up for an official presentation of Rory’s degree, including spectacles, a mortarboard cap and a cup necklace. Perfect presentation, as usual.

Lyle and Denise presented Davis Hopper with his Paul Harris Fellow award! Quote from Davis: “See? Everyone is Eligible!!”

San Bernardino County Supervisor Janice Rutherford was today’s guest speaker.
The Supervisor started by describing a recent day she spent with the Sheriffs Deputies at the range – Sounded like fun as they put her through one of their simulated assault situations! She said it is good to know that our officers are very well trained, and how they are trained to deal with their on the job problems.
Supervisor Rutherford spoke today about the recent study that was commissioned to review the possibility of the Lake Arrowhead Communities becoming a city. The Supervisor went through number of the items that are a part of the study including the services that the new city would be responsible for.
There were a number of question for the Supervisor, which pointed up the (VERY) controversial nature of considering cityhood. Ms. Rutherford closed on the thought that the study would be out sometime in the summer – and whatever action is taken at that time is completely in the hands of the voters of our community.


John finally relented and let Ken have 90 seconds – at least 60 of which was spent modeling his new baseball cap with feather decorations. The hat is VERY attractive!

Darren Morocco from COAD presented the “Basic Business Awareness Project” for the group. Darren is in charge of the emergency preparedness program for the Country Club, and went through his the plan he has created for the Club.

Jim Johnstone gave a brief presentation regarding this year’s fire season – in a word – IT’S GONNA BE THE WORST EVER!!! Jim gave a brief description of the danger, and what it means to decide to not evacuate when ordered.

Taylor made a brief presentation about her experience with RYLA, and how it helped her climb out of her bubble and gave her a shove to run for president, a great help for her self-confidence! She looks forward to participating as a RYLA Alum in the future

Exchange student Gwenn Griggs reported on her upcoming stay in France – which we are sponsoring! She is still waiting for a city and family assignment, but will be leaving in August for her 9 month stay. She has been quite a young Rotarian, having been the President of Interact, and participated in many service projects!
















The 4-Way Speech Contest!

Program chair Deborah Fancett introduced the contest:

  • 5 Speakers today
  • They will by referred to by number, and introduced after the competition
  • Each will speak for a minimum of 5 minutes and a maximum of 8
  • There are three judges: Ginny Durrand, Billie Latva and Bob Mosby.
  • The Official Timekeeper will be Ken Nielsen.
  • NO APPLAUSE until all have presented!


Bob Mosby and Toni Martinez presented the American Cancer Societies “Relay for Life” event.

The “Relay for Life” event is a local community based event that raises funds for the American Cancer Society. It is designed to raise awareness by doing a team walk-a-thon for a 24 hour period. The event that Bob and Toni participate in is held in Southgate on July 21.

There are about 5200 such community based events held around the world that raise about $400 million annually. At Bob and Toni’s event, there will likely be about 400 participants, and they think they could raise about $51,000 for the cause.

They talked about the program that includes a luminario ceremony for survivors, and a “Candlelight Lap” that includes a bagpiper playing “Amazing Grace.”

Sounds like quite an event!





Scott Craft and Stephanie Phillips presented the NEW ROTARY SIGN built by students at RIM – NICE!!!! Scott said the carpenters would visit our meeting in the near future.



ImageDeborah introduced this year’s RYLA participants – and went through a video of the program. Co-sponsor Bill Priest mentioned that RYLA id the biggest item on the District’s budget, almost $160,000 is spent on RYLA in our District. There were 300 kids this time, 7 from our club.

A few comments from the RYLArians:

  • Kaylee: “It helped me come out of my shell!!!”
  • Laurielle: Thanks for the opportunity! There was one problem kid in her group that kept them from early bonding – he went home, and things turned up almost instantly.
  • Tori: Thanks for the opportunity!! RIM had great representation there – everyone clicked right away, and everyone learned a lot.
  • Alex: Had way high expectations, and the program was WAY more than he expected!

Sounds like the program went very well!
