Home Page Stories

 
In response to your editor's request for interesting material for the La Rueda many members sent brief snippets about themselves--something not generally known.
 
Here is our first list:
 
John Adams--I was the sports editor for my high school yearbook.

Madeline Feijoo--I am a bibliophile.
Chris Morgan--I sailed a 130' schooner from Rockport Maine all the way to Tobago, South America when I was 21.  Scrubbing decks, sanding the hull and navigating by the stars is a good way to learn the value of hard work.

Arts Foundation Report
The Arts Foundation discussed at length the merger of both Club and Arts Foundation at its
monthly meeting on January 6th. Brian has been and will be meeting with Tom Simon
regarding merger. A review of documents prepared by Tim Butler is for the coming.
There are many things to consider. The Arts Foundation Board is in favor of merger, provided
details can de accomplished.
 

 
 
The build took 5 Saturdays beginning in the end of Nov thru mid January.
We worked from 8am till 1:30.
Rotary volunteers: Brian Mcpartlon,Bob Parker,Don Miller,Kevin Southwick, Brad  Thompson      ,
Charlie Wilson        ,Deborah Simon
Outside help:David Dipbeye, Rob Bolton,Lou Lewis
Much of the preparation was done by Brian and Don Miller. Don and Brian made our efforts know to both the Mayors Committee on Disabilities and the Governors council on Disabilities.
We found the recipient thru Craig's List.
Her name is Mrs. Vargas and she lives on Lopez Lane on the south side of Santa Fe. She is a stroke victim.
She is extremely grateful as prior to this her son in law had to carry her down the stairs to put her in there family car.
She is now able to go outside on her own for things as simple as to get fresh air.
We will be building another "Ramp" in the spring .
We are now in the process of finding a recipient for the next build.
Brian

News

Nominations for Club Officers were presented November 13.  The slate proposed by the nominating committee was accepted by acclamation. Election of Officers will occur at the December 11 meeting. The nominating committee was chaired by immediate Past President Philip Spiers. President Cheryl Ford-Mente will, of course, assume the Past President position July 1, 2015.

 
 
Shall we be subjecting ourselves to the charge of unpractical optimism if we venture to hope that The Rotarian will some day be of interest to the public in general?
 
 
The rise and fall of civilization will depend upon the thoughtfulness or the thoughtlessness of men.  The greatest thing that can happen to man or nation is to stimulate the individual or the national thoughtfulness.
 
 

As no individual who shirks his community service can lay justifiable claim to being a well-rounded citizen, so no Rotary club of today which is indifferent to the welfare of the city in which it is established measures up to the stature of full-grown Rotary clubs. 

 
 
The foundation upon which Rotary is built is friendship; on no less firm foundation could it have stood.
 
 
"It must not be overlooked that being a Rotarian imposes upon a man an obligation to carry into his trade association the ideals and precepts which he holds as a Rotarian.  He should endeavor to make them appreciated and get them accepted by all in his line of business."
 
 

No prospect is more alluring than that held out by the exaltation of one's vocation as the most available and appropriate means of contributing to social needs.

 

 

 
 

The future of Rotary is shrouded in expectant mystery.  It is for you my new Rotarian friends to aid in the unfurling of the Rotarian destiny.
