Rotary 5190 District Governor, Gail Ellingwood led the induction at the Tuesday July 21st meeting

Ken is no stranger to community service and has participated in many of the club's programs for several years.  He has helped with the 5th Grade Financial Literacy Program, read to 3rd Graders in Ms. Hammie's Literacy Circles, rounded up ducks in the rubber ducky derby, led fishing expeditions as part of our Sierra Safari and prepared and cooked food at the Soup Kitchen.
Ken was born in New Hampshire, raised in Covina, CA and enlisted in the US Navy in 1984.  After serving his country for 20 years, he retired and trained as a Respiratory Therapist.  When the opportunity to work in Bishop came up, they didn't think twice about moving to our small community eight years ago.  Our beautiful Eastern Sierra surroundings is the perfect place for Ken to pursue his hobbies of fishing, hiking and fly tying.
Ken was attracted to Rotary because of the community service and the fellowship with club members and other Rotarians.  He brings commitment, enthusiasm and initiative to the club as he joins his wife, Sue, working on our current community and international projects.  They are a dynamic team!

Mammoth Lakes Noon Rotary Club organized a group of nearly 50 volunteers including Rotary Club of Bishop members DeEtte Johnston and Anneke Bishop, students and friends Kelly Pfeiler, Keirsten Anderson, Jackie and Maritza Garcia, Sarah Barba, Alison and Ian Bishop all joined in with volunteers to build a house in one day in the Village of Serra Azul, 12 kilometers south of the border.   They left Saturday May 3rd and spent the night in El Cajon.  Sunday everyone returned home, tired but happy and satisfied.  The crew has a safety briefing from the lead builders and start working.  The materials are moved off the slab and cutting begins.  The only power tools used are saws and they are restricted to the lead builders and one or two very experienced volunteers.  The walls are framed and sheeted with plywood and raised in place.  The windows are installed and the roof rafters go up and are sheeted.  The loft is constructed and everything is painted.  All of this occurs before lunchtime!  After lunch, it’s back to work.  The roofing material is installed, the kitchen counter goes in, trim is installed, and more painting.  The house is usually finished between 3 and 5 pm.  The houses have no electricity or water, but are a solid residence for the occupants.

.  Among the volunteers was Vicki Puliz, the District Governor of Rotary District 5190.  DeEette Johnston and Anneke Bishop reported to the club that they didn’t expect the 90+ degree heat but were able to get the job completed. The project concluded with a simple but moving ceremony where the keys to the new home were presented to the Estrada-Villa family who had donated hundreds of hours of community service before becoming eligible for a home.

The Rotary Club of Bishop President, Maggie Kingsbury presented a check for $1000.00 to Dan Watson at the Mammoth Lakes Noon Rotary meeting March 27th for their Corazon project in Mexico.

Dan Watson has coordinated a hands-on, international service project in Tecate, Mexico for the Mammoth Lakes Noon Rotary for the past two years.  Working with Corazon, Inc., a non-profit organization from Orange County, Rotarians and their family and friends, build a family house in just one day.   Anneke Bishop, from the Rotary Club of Bishop, her two daughters and 6 other people from Bishop joined this group last year.  The project concludes with a simple but moving ceremony where the keys to the new home are presented to the family.  This is often accompanied by warm hugs, lumps in the throat and a few tears.  One the ceremony concludes, the volunteers travel as a group again and cross the border.  Anneke feels that this is a very worthy service project and   plans on going again May 3rd.

Corazon is a non-profit organization out of Orange County CA that provides a variety of services to the people of Northern Baja.  While they are best known for coordinating the building of houses in one day, they also provide many other services such as scholarships, job training and soccer clinics.  They work with US service clubs, churches and schools.  The materials for each house cost $7,800 which includes a high school scholarship and it takes 30 to 50 volunteers.  The service club raises the money and finds the volunteers.  Corazon coordinates obtaining the land and materials and determining who gets a home.  They also provide 2 – 3 “lead builders” who are experienced volunteers.  They lead the construction project.

Corene Seaver was inducted into the Rotary Club of Bishop October 8, 2013.  Her sponsor is Captain Andria Witmer, California Highway Patrol.  Corene is a Public Safety Dispatch Supervisor for the California Highway Patrol. 

Corene has a B.A. in Management and Psychology from Charter Oaks State College and is ¾ complete in getting her M.A. in Psychology, Marriage and Family Therapy from California Southern University. She has lived in Bishop with her family for the past 10 years.  Both she and her husband, Richard Seaver, also a CHP Dispatch Supervisor wanted to live in a small town with all four seasons and jumped at the rare opportunity to work in Bishop at a small communications center.  Corene has worked with the CHP as a dispatcher/and/or supervisor for 17 years.

 Her children, Jennah Seaver, age 19 and Joe Seaver, age 18 both graduated from Bishop Union High school and were Rotary scholarship recipients.  Corene enjoys the beautiful Sierra surrounding and has become a skilled cell phone photographer. 

Corene said she was attracted to Rotary because “she is interested in community service without a religious or political association.  The quality of the members involved in Rotary guarantees an organized club and provides an opportunity to learn from the most experienced citizens of the community.  Rotary is a progressive organization utilizing social media and technology to reach out to an international membership and I hope to become more involved in all aspects of the club’s mission.”  Corene said she is ready to start working on the club’s service programs such as holiday projects, helping Wild Iris, Gardening and working in the club’s snack shack.

When asked what else is interesting about her, Corene said she is a US Army Veteran and was stationed in Germany for 2 years.  She worked as a mechanic and worked on Humvees and other trucks.  “I never had a job where I laughed and had more fun in my life.  Part of our mission was to support the Infantry as they trained the allied forces in combat maneuvers.  We often played the role as hostages or POWs as the Infantry trained in tactical procedures.  I traveled all over Europe during that tour of duty.  I’m Native American, from the Ojibwe tribe in Northern Wisconsin.”

President Maggie Kingsbury said the club welcomes and is honored to have Corene as a fellow Rotarian.

The Rotary Club of Bishop welcomed Anneke Bishop to the non profit community service organization on February 5th.  The induction was conducted by Rotarian Randy Van Tassell along with Anneke’s sponsor, Lori Gable. 

Anneke Bishop is a Registered Nurse   She did her nursing education at a University Hospital in Amsterdam,  the Netherlands and later received her Bachelors degree in Nursing education in the city of Leeuwarden, the Netherlands.      Anneke has lived in Bishop since 2004.   After moving to the United States she started working as a RN once she passed the required exams.   Her husband, Bob works as a Transportation Security Officer at Mammoth airport.  Bob and Anneke have 3 children, Alysia, 21 years old, Alison 18 years old and Ian, 14 years old.  Anneka enjoys traveling, hiking in our beautiful Sierra area,  being outdoors in the summer, photography and working on upgrades to their home.

Anneka had heard of our Rotary club and was attracted to their many local, national and international projects.  She feels her experience of living outside of Bishop and outside of the United States might bring a different look on how the club can start new charitable programs.  She is looking forward to working on a one day project in Mexico where she will help other Rotarians build a home for a homeless family.    President, Mike Gable, is excited to have Anneke in the club and says because of her career in nursing, she certainly is no stranger to helping those in need and is ready to pitch in and help in the club’s many  projects.

Last year was a start of a new tradition and plans are being made by Rotarian Mike Gable to continue this Bishop Rotary Santa Mile. The Bishop Rotary Santa Mile will be run prior to the Bishop Christmas Parade on Saturday, December 8th.  Registration will start at 8:30a at the Bishop Chamber of Commerce.  The fun run will start at 9:45a, also at the Chamber, and all proceeds will go to Polio Plus.  There will be prizes for the top 3 male and female finishers as well as kids’ prizes.  Image

-        Polio is a viral disease, spread from person to person and was one of the most dreaded childhood diseases of the 20th century.  It can lead to severe and permanent paralysis  and disability.  By 1910, epidemics of polio cases became regular events throughout the world which left thousands of adults and children paralyzed.  We don’t hear much about Polio anymore in the United States as the last cases in this country occurred in 1979.

-        Rotary's involvement in polio eradication began in 1979 with a five-year commitment to provide and help deliver polio vaccine to six million children of the Philippines. With the advice and support of the late Dr. Albert Sabin, developer of the oral polio vaccine, Rotary established its PolioPlus program in 1985 to eradicate Polio from the face of the entire Earth.

-        At the time Polio Plus started, there were 179 countries with active Polio cases and today there are 3 (Afganistan, Pakistan, Nigeria). 

-        Rotary has donated over $1 billion and partners with UNICEF, World Health Organization, Centers for Disease Control, and the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation among others

-        Although we have decreased the global number of cases of Polio by 99%, the fight is not over.  We must continue to vaccinate children in the countries mentioned above as well as countries such as India, which have become Polio free only within the last year and a half.

Janice feels that the Rotary Club will answer her quest to volunteer in the community plus use her past professional skills in civil engineering and planning landscaping projects.   Dr. Leo Pisculli sponsored Janice and will help her get started on current outdoor projects such as the community garden plus the club’s other community programs. 

Janice is retired  from Civil Engineering work and operating a Landscaping Business.  She has lived in Bishop for the past 26 years.  Janice and her husband, Bob Rogenski, have been very happy being away from a city environment and living here in our gorgeous Eastern Sierra area.  Janice pursues her hobbies of skiing, photography and horseback riding.  When asked anything else interesting about you, Janice said she plays the banjo and is learning Spanish at an advanced age!
