This Weeks Funny?

Posted by David Davis on Sep 06, 2013

A Pastor goes to the dentist for a set of false teeth. The first Sunday
after he gets his new teeth, he talks for only eight minutes. The second
Sunday, he talks for only ten minutes. The following Sunday, he talks for 2
hours and 48 minutes. 

The congregation had to mob him to get him down from the pulpit and they
asked him what happened. 

The Pastor explains the first Sunday his gums hurt so bad he couldn't talk
for more than 8 minutes. The second Sunday his gums hurt too much to talk
for more than 10 minutes. But, the third Sunday, he put his wife's' teeth in
by mistake and he couldn't shut up. 

I love it when I make you smile...and I KNOW you are smiling!

This is beyond a "nice story"

"Service Above Self?"

 

 
 
                       This is beyond a "nice story"
X.MA1.1364602524@aol.com
During an early morning response to a house fire, firefighters were
amazed...
A mother dog risked her life to save her puppies from the fire
surrounding the burning house...
The mother dog, Amanda, raced back and forth between the house,
putting her 10-day-old puppies in the safest place she could find – a
Fire Truck
X.MA2.1364602524@aol.com
As an onlooker photographed it with his cell phone after she already
had a few in one of the truck's equipment compartments.
She didn't stop racing back into the smoke and fire until
all of her puppies were safely away from the fire.
X.MA3.1364602524@aol.com
The firemen on scene could not believe their eyes.
Most people have never seen a dog this smart or this brave!
She brought each one out, six trips into the fire and no one could stop
her.
X.MA4.1364602524@aol.com
All the firemen could do was to try to keep a little water spray on her
to keep from singing as she kept making trips running through the
open door.
You can see some of the singed hair on her back end, forehead and
lower legs.
After rescuing all of her puppies from the blaze, Amanda sat down
next to them to nurse, protecting them with her body.
Onlookers called an emergency veterinary service, and she and her
puppies were rushed to the hospital.
Aside from one puppy being treated for serious burns, the entire
family is alive and well, thanks to the bravery of heroic mother
Amanda

Top Ten Reasons To Join Rotary

Posted by David Davis on Apr 21, 2013

Top 10 Reasons to Join Rotary



Professional Networking

A founding principle of Rotary was to meet periodically to enjoy camaraderie and

enlarge one’s circle of business and professional acquaintances. As the oldest

service organization in the world, Rotary club members represent a cross-section of the

community’s owners, executives, managers, political leaders, and professionals

– people who make decisions and influence policy.


Service Opportunities

Club members have many opportunities for humanitarian service, both locally

and internationally. Service programs address such concerns as health care,

hunger, poverty, illiteracy, and the environment. Rotarians experience the

fulfillment that comes from giving back to the community.


International Awareness

With more than 32,000 clubs in over 200 countries & geographical areas,

Rotarians gain an understanding of humanitarian issues through international

service projects and exchange programs. One of Rotary’s highest objectives is to

build goodwill and peace throughout the world.


Friendship 

Rotary was founded on fellowship, an ideal that remains a major attraction of

membership today. Club members enjoy the camaraderie with like-minded

professionals, and club projects offer additional opportunities to develop enduring

friendships. Rotary club members who travel have friendly contacts in almost

every city in the world.


Good Citizenship

Weekly Rotary club programs keep members informed and motivated

to make a difference in the community, nation, and world.


Family Foundations

Rotary sponsors some of the world’s largest youth exchange, educational

exchange, and scholarship programs. Rotary clubs provide innovative training

opportunities and mentoring for young leaders and involve family members in a

wide range of social and service activities.


Entertainment

Social activities give Rotarians a chance to let loose and have fun. Every Rotary

club and district hosts parties and activities that offer diversions from today’s

demanding professional and personal schedules. Conferences, conventions,

assemblies, and social events provide entertainment as well as Rotary

information, education, and service.


Ethical Environment

Encouraging high ethical standards in one’s profession and respect for all worthy

vocations has been a hallmark of Rotary from its earliest days. In their business

and professional lives, Rotarians abide by--- 

The Four-Way Test:

Of the things we think, say or do:

1) Is it the TRUTH?

2) Is it FAIR to all concerned?

3) Will it BUILD GOODWILL and BETTER FRIENDSHIPS?

4) Will it be BENEFICIAL to all concerned?


Leadership Development

Rotary is an organization of successful professionals. Team building, fundraising,

public speaking, planning, organization, and communication are just a sampling

of the leadership skills that club members can exercise and enhance. Being a

Rotary leader provides further experience in learning how to motivate, inspire,

and guide others.


Diversity in Membership

Rotary’s classification system ensures that a club’s membership represents a

variety of the community’s professional men and women, including leaders in

business, industry, the arts, government, sports, the military, and religion. Rotary

clubs are nonpolitical, nonreligious, and open to all cultures, races, and creeds.

Meeting of July 8, 2013

Posted by David Davis

 Linton Morgan Our Assistant DG spoke to us today.  He spoke to us about the "My Brother's Keeper" program that they have at his Inglewood club.  Basicly each member is responsible for another.  It seems to me like a very good way to live life in general.

Jean then had us sing the "National Anthem."  She told us of the history of it's commencement.
Quite a walk down the lane of pridefulness.

God Bless the USA!

City of Bellflower Day

Bellflower Rotary Club provided the Fireworks for the City of Bellflower Day at Hollywood Sports. Giovanni Egidio, prospective Bellflower Rotarian, hosted the City of Bellflower Day on July 3 from 12noon to 10pm for citizens of Bellflower. Over 350 participated during the day with paintballing, rock-climbing, picnicing and fireworks. The Rotarians met at 5pm for a picnic dinner of steaks and baked potatoes. Howard Davis, Jim Murrin, Rick Searey, and Dean Severson were like little boys blowing up the "safe and sane" fireworks. At one point, the table covering started on fire, but thanks to the quick action of the Hollywood Sports employees, it was quickly put out. Thanks so much to Giovanni for providing the venue. This is definitely an activity we need to do annually.

Only in America

The Rotary meeting of September 11, 2008, was filled with interesting and exciting events, and guests.  A full house greeted guest speaker, John Mirassou of the Redondo Beach Rotary Club, as he gave an overview of his book "Only in America" about his adventures and misadventures with friends on a 17-foot Whaler (boat) for 6,100 miles in the waterways of America without actually being in the Ocean.  When asked what he would say if one of his sons decided to do something so daring, what would he say, "Can I go too!" John stayed and autographed his book for those purchasing, and noted that part of the sale of the books go to RI international, and to other worthwhile projects.

"GOOD MORNING KMART SHOPPERS!!!"  Saturday, September 13th began at 7AM at the Bellflower KMart Store on Rosecrans.  Bellflower Rotary members and spouses(Chicks) in full force with Caring Connections proceeded to organize and match up (55) kids with adults to shop for school clothes.  This annual event grows and grows.  It was like something out of a 'Reality Show' where everyone has a basket and is running for the best bargains to load up their carts.  Men who never shop for their own kids, or for themselves were helping kids of all ages select shoes, clothes and underwear.  It was great fun, and very rewarding.  There were so many kids, that Caring Connections also brought reinforcements in the form of kids from Americorp.  These kids really know how to shop, and did a great job making every dollar count for the younger kids.

Summer Street Fest

 

Bellflower Rotary Club assisted the city by keeping the streets clean during the Summer Street Fest. This year, Rotary volunteered to help out during the first and last events.  On July 10, a number of Rotarians met at Johnny Rebs restaurant for dinner. After enjoying a good meal, it was off to work with a broom and dust pan.

 

There was music, arts and crafts, a farmer's market, outdoor dining and kids' games and activities. The music at this event was classic rock and was enjoyed by a large amount of dancers in front of the stage. It was a huge success and the streets were cleaner when we left than they were when
