Luna Vista Rotary (with the help of other Clubs along with our District) has twice funded and set up 2 dental clinics in Tanzania (a country where there is only 1 dentist for every 175,000 people). While setting up the 2nd clinic in late 2016, a parallel effort was underway for another project at the clinic - a digital x-ray machine that can be used for overall medical uses and well as dental x-rays at our clinic! And so the new machine has been installed and it ready for use!! Congratulations to all the Rotary clubs for the time, effort, and $$$ to make this happen!!

District Grant / Woodland Fire Chief

Posted by Denny Patrick / Dave Williams on Aug 08, 2017
Luna Vista Receives District Grant
The meeting began with Karl Diekman, District Foundation Chair, and John Martin, the Area Foundation Representative presenting the District Grant check in the amount of $14,705.00, to our president Tom Richardson.  The Grant will provide funding for Construction of an ADA compliant restroom at the Historic Woodland Train Depot and will allow this historic depot to once again be a community gathering place.
Awarding of the District Grant Check

New Woodland Fire Chief
Woodland’s new Fire Chief, Rebecca Ramirez, presented an update on our fire department as well as her journey to becoming Woodland’s newest Fire Chief. She began with the Department of forestry in 1991 moving to the West Sacramento Fire Department in 1993. Over the years she had moved up to Deputy Fire Chief in West Sacramento. In 2018 she became Woodland’s newest fire chief.
Woodland’s fire department started in 1870.  It now has 3 stations staffed continuously by 13 to 14 members on duty 24/7/365. Their services are many and diverse:  Fire Suppression, Medical Aid, Education, and tours to our youth in the community. They also work with West Sac FD and UCD to create a Hazmat team.
Their training is continuous and ongoing to provide the best services to our community. There are no fees for services and they always stand ready to help when called.

Our Newest Rotarian, Danielle

Posted by Denny Patrick / Dave Williams on Aug 01, 2017
Danielle Wogulis, our newest and I believe our youngest member, and her Halloween buddy gave us a life recap up to now.
  • Local Beginning: Born in San Francisco;  moved to Davis at 9.
  • Excelled and active in High School:  Earned a whopping 5.0 GPA; participated in the theater group, working behind the scenes doing set design and decoration. 
  • Continued excellence in College: Awarded a regent’s scholarship to UC Santa Barbara; earned a degree in art from the College of Creative Studies; “escaped” to study abroad at the University of Leeds in the UK.
  • Today: Lives in Sacramento; works in Woodland at the Yolo Conflict Resolution Center, which she mentioned is a little ironic since she does just about anything to avoid conflict.
  • Hobby: Paints in several different mediums including Acrylic and oil. (Hopefully soon she will treat us to a showing of her art!)

Joe, the stand-in President for the evening closed with a quote from John Wayne:
Tomorrow is the most important thing in life. It comes to us at midnight very clean. It’s perfect when it arrives and puts itself in our hands. It hopes we’ve learned something from yesterday.

Getting to Know One of Our Newest Rotarians, Kara

Posted by Denny Patrick / Dave Williams on Jul 25, 2017
Our newest member Kara Hunter presented a unique bio where we were invited to select questions we were interested in about her past. The questions were displayed on a white sheet of paper or, as she put it, her “low-tech” visual aid. We all had fun learning about our new and amazingly generous new Rotarian. Here are the highlights of Kara’s bio:
  • Juvenile Justice is a very close to her heart.  She was raised in a farming family from the Central Valley and instilled with the spirit of giving by her Grandmother Lillian; she works for the Yolo Conflict Resolution Center
  • She became a triathlete to keep up with her niece, nephew, and six godchildren.
  • She traveled about the globe working in Mexico and Czechoslovakia. In Czechoslovakia, she taught a “unique” form of English helpful to the working girls.  It was not a job she kept for long.
  • Her favorite color is purple. However Barney best not come around, because she is terrified of anyone in a mascot suit.
  • Her signature saying in high school was “No sé hombre”  [Spanish: I don’t know, man], which doesn't’t seem to capture  the spirit of this dynamic and giving lady.
  • Her love of Russian literature inspired a tattoo she has that says, “To hope and to act is our duty and despair” – in Russian of course – taken from the novel Dr. Zhivago.
We look forward to getting to know our newest “Lunatic!”
Kara's engaging and informative bio.
President Tom Richardson closed the meeting with this quote:
The key to happiness, I concluded, lay in controlling the way we compare the events of our life with our expectations. It lay in being content with what we have in the present moment, rather than by striving for the intangible, "more."
                                          -- Mo Gawdet

Back in the USSR
The second half of our program was a fascinating pictorial travel log into eastern Europe, Finland and Russia by boat and train, presented by Ute, Nick and Victoria, Nick’s wife Tammy also contributed in conveying the Russian experience.  Ute and Tammy learned you can never hang out in the drink car of a train while crossing the border into Russia, the officials are very scrupulous, close call ladies.  Tonight Victoria wore a  Golden Russian crown that made all of us other princesses in the audience jealous, she wore it well!  Last but not least, Russian Vodka was brought out to complete the true spirit and culture of the Russian people. Joe Muller won the prize for answering the Russian History lesson. He probable googled it!

Our own Lynette Ertel, Associate at RE/MAX Gold in Davis, CA shared with the club the status of Real Estate in Yolo County.  She discussed trends in sales, pricing and financing.  Sales are generally down and prices up.  High prices have still not reached the record highs for the area years ago.  Financing is plentiful and creative, with many more lenders in the market.  Median home ownership has gone from 3.5 years in 2008 to 8.5 years in 2016.

Luna Vista Helps With Woodland KIDS Reads

Posted by Cass Sylvia on May 30, 2017

The three Rotary clubs of Woodland partnered with Woodland United Way to the first Woodland KIDS Read event on Tuesday, May 23. Gibson and Freeman elementary school first graders were treated to a celebration of BOOKS this past week on the Woodland Community College Campus.

Upon arrival, 135 children were greeted by story book characters from the Woodland Opera House. The first graders heard a story of the Good Queen Sue from storyteller, John Jorgenson, founder of the “Wyoming Reads” program, of which this Woodland event was modeled. Interactors (or young Rotarians to be,) from Pioneer High School entertained the children by acting out the story.

Next, local children’s author, Sandy Holman, shared her book “We All Have Heritage” and led the children in an interactive and inspiring story about how we should embrace our unique differences while also finding commonalities.

This event also hosted local celebrity readers including Rotarians Keith Rode, Pauly van Muyden, Victoria Lambert, Ruth Fitch, Roy Holmes, Raylene Ewing, Kris Kristensen, as well as retired Dr. Cleve Baker, veterinarian Julia Larson, police officer Hannah Gray, chef Toby Barajas and Woodland Fire Department Battalion Chief Eric Zane.

Other guests included Associate Superintendent Stacy Spector, Woodland School Trustee Tanya Tafoya and president of Woodland Community College, Dr. Michael White.

Lori Ross from United Way said, “This event was about the kids, but it was also about the community coming together to support our educators. We can’t all be reading tutors and classroom helpers, but there are many ways we can support literacy and this is one of them. We can show children that we are passionate about books, so they’re not just hearing it from teachers and librarians.”

Every student left with a personal backpack filled with books including their favorite hard cover book with their name inscribed on a unique book plate on the inside cover.

Kelly Timothy, first grade teacher from Gibson said, “It was a magical day focused on the power and love of reading. The event was extremely well organized and well thought out. The students absolutely loved seeing the characters come to life.”

Wayne Ginsburg, Rotarian and event planning member, “We hope that this will be the first of many Woodland KIDS Read events. We’d like to partner with local businesses and other community service groups so that we can eventually invite all of Woodland first graders to participate.”

Those interested in being part of Woodland KIDS Read events can contact Ross at lross@woodlandunitedway.org or any Woodland Rotarian.

Oak Park Rotary House

Posted by Raylene Ewing on May 23, 2017
Lynette Andersen from the North Sacramento Club in District 5180 shared with Luna Vista the Oak Park Rotary House.  It is a single family house near UC Davis Children’s Hospital, where a family of a child may stay long term at no cost while the child receives in patient or outpatient care at the Hospital.  Lynette was the initial president of the board of directors that constructed, operates and maintains the house.  It was first envisioned in 2004.  7 Rotary clubs in the area sponsored and continue to support the house.  They broke ground in 2007, constructed it on weekends with the help of a contractor who volunteered his time and taught Rotarians how to build a house.  The first family occupied the house in 2012 with a formal partnership with UC Davis Children’s Hospital.  The house was recently featured on Fox 40 honoring Rotary’s commitment to service.  For more information, to donate, to volunteer, www.oakparkhouse.com

Playmakers inspire Luna Vista

Posted by Raylene Ewing on May 16, 2017
Greg “Coach Roz” Roezler, Executive Director, and Chip Schumacher (both Rotarians), spoke to the club about Playmakers.
Believing that coaches hold a key to building skills beyond the field, Roeszler founded The Playmakers – a non-profit organization designed to build leadership and character through sports and academics.  Founded in 2009, The Playmakers began as a summer football camp integrating football skills and character lessons. Now, after 8 years, Playmakers has evolved to provide after school and summer reading programs for at-risk youth, and an annual Summer Football Academy for regional high schools. To date, Playmakers has touched the lives of more than 2,000 students and athletes. The vision for the future is to expand to more elementary schools and spread The Playmakers curriculum on a national scale. Every city and every school district has a need to reduce bullying and class behavior incidents.
You can read Playmaker Stories that are showing us evidence that building character, self-confidence and leadership gives young students tools to diffuse difficult situations, think of others, and to know when to ask for help.
For more information about how you can help, www.theplaymakers.org

Rotary Foundation presentation

Posted by Bert Rinkel on Nov 11, 2016
Ute did the honors of Happy $$, which created a lot of enthusiasm. 
This year the District introduced new pins, to challenge donations of $100, $200, $500. These are contributions before reaching the $1,000 mark for a PHF pin. 
Jane Louie and Don Jenkins gave a presentation to the club about Foundations, first the Rotary Foundation and a little about where the local Luna Vista Foundation fits in. The above example shows how the cervical cancer (PINCC) project is financed. Notice that the seven clubs (3 Woodland clubs, 3 Davis clubs and West Sac. club) started the project with $3,583 and remaining contributions made it up to a total of $78,875. That is how Rotary works. Our contributions to the Rotary International Foundation get used again for projects like these: $31,792 plus the District adding another $30,000. This project became a Global Grant. There also are District grants, mostly for local projects.

The Paul Harris Posse for DG Laura to Pin Paul Nelson 2013-05-23 00:00:00Z 0

Message from DG Laura Day

Posted by Paul Nelson on May 21, 2013

We are on the brink of setting a District 5160 record in giving to the Rotary Foundation.  Specifically the Annual Fund, the fund that pays us back to fund our local and international grants.

To date, we have sent $464,000 to The Rotary Foundation Annual Fund.  $481,000 will break the previous record.  $500,000 blows past that record to a new milestone. 

We have 40 days and 40 nights left, like Noah and the ark, to post $36,000. And we are on pace to do it.  Kenya Smiles is a great project on its own, but it was created to give us the opportunity to actively demonstrate what our Rotary dollars do for us. The $50,000 we raised $10 at a time, turned into a $195,000 grant. That message has resonated with our very sharp membership.  Our current level of giving to The Rotary Foundation shows us that your Kenya Smiles grant, on all fronts, was a big success.  Thank you for supporting it and making this happen. These are mostly community projects, should you want to encourage donations by citing examples of how our contributions to The Rotary Foundation help us here at home.  And then there are the International Grants.....Thank you,  LD
