The Rotary Club of Lebanon has had a long association with LISTEN in Lebanon.  We help with community dinners; work with the Lebanon High School  Interact Club to support the outdoor food pantry that was established in memory of out member Susan Donnelly; hold canned food drives several times a year; support families in need during the holiday season; and we are holiday basket helpers.  This video record all that LISTEN has done in 2019.  Click here to see the video for Giving Tuesday at Lebanon

Simple Energy

Our speaker today was the co-founder of Simple Energy, Rob Stenger. 

Rob Stenger

Stenger educated us about the ever changing energy markets. He reviewed historical trend in energy product consumption over time, and gave us his perspectives on what our future might look like as innovations in transportation and fuel choices change over time.  

He shared that at the moment, there is less volatility in the cost of oil per barrel.  But he predicts that the cost per barrel may go down to close to $30/barrel. A dance goes on in OPEC to set a price that will permit economies to thrive and keep us buying fuel.

The cost of propane is harder to predict trends. He shared how policy changes may dramatically impact a community's ability to use propane.  

He predicts that driverless and electric cars may cause major disruptions as fewer people purchase cars, and rely on services like electric driverless Uber type services.

He shared that driverless vehicles may impact our future the way the combustion engines, and the advent of cars impacted our use of horses at the turn of the century.

It was a thought provoking presentation, that reminded us that changes in technology will continually challenge us to think about our environment in new and unique ways

Rotary Regional Coordinator, Carolyn Johnson

Taking thing Personally...The Amazing Things that Can Happen Through Our Rotary Foundation
 
Carolyn Johnson is passionate about the Rotary Foundation.  She shared a variety of stories about projects she has participated in or initiated using funds from the Rotary Foundation for Global Grants.
 
 
She has done numerous literacy projects in Guatemala. She described a project that included teacher training and provided books for schools.
 
When Johnson went back to the school to evaluate the outcomes of the grant, she went into a classroom and asked the children about the value of having more books.  One young boy exclaimed, "reading has changed my life".  He then went on to talk about a book he read about a bully and how the story about this bully turned his life around. He shared the boy in the book was just like him.  In the book the bully turns from a bully to a friend.  He decided that he could and should become a friend too.  His classmates shared that he had been a bully and not well like.  But now he is a friend.  Johnson reminded all of us that our donation had a hand in changing the life of this young student.
