This week's Rotary Weekly Minute is brought to you by Past President Scott Otsuka
Later this month I will celebrate my 14th Anniversary in the Rotary Club of Roseville.  Here are a few things I’ve learned, in no particular order:
  1. There is no better year in Rotary than your Presidential year 
  2. There is no better title in Rotary than PAST President
  3. In Rotary there is something for everybody
  4. In Rotary there is someone for everything
  5. Because of 3 & 4, nobody has to do everything, you don’t even have to CARE about everything
  6. The people that I can most rely on for advice, professional or personal, are my fellow Rotarians
  7. I am continually amazed by the quality of human being attracted to my Rotary Club
  8. I am continually amazed by the depth of caring and compassion in my Rotary Club
  9. I am continually amazed that despite the fact you insist you will NEVER do something, you will do it for your club anyway (see Polio Raffle, Amanda’s Taco Throwdown and Val’s Presidency.  Oh, and Amanda’s Vice Presidency!)
  10. Sometimes just being around the people in my club, I feel like a fraud and hope nobody finds out the truth
  11. Rotary is not a business group, but business gets done
  12. The 4-way test is real and absolutely works
  13. It’s okay to talk about the things you shouldn’t talk about.  In fact, you have to.  How else can they be addressed?
  14. It is said you get out of it what you put into it.  In Rotary that’s false, you get back so much more than you could ever put in
To be perfectly honest, when I joined the Rotary Club of Roseville I was looking for business.  By somehow earning a little trust, I got that.  But I have also gotten so much more.  I have gotten friends.  I have gotten family.  I have learned more from you than any other single source in my life.  From Past RI President I have learned two of my all-time favorite quotes that shape my Rotary life:
  • You may not recall who was President when you joined Rotary, nor likely remember who was District Governor or RI President…but I’ll be you remember who invited you to join.  Thank you Bruce Scheidt and Diane Ogden
  • (paraphrased) I cannot fully understand the impact my service has wrought, but I can never repay the gifts that I have received from Rotary.
I will continue to try, in my own special way, to pay back and pay forward the gifts that I receive every day from Rotary and from you.
Join the Rotary Club of Roseville and StayFIT for the Get FIT, Stay FT with Rotary competition!
We have designed this competition for 2 reasons – first, to help our members get into their best shape for 2019, and second, to raise funds to send a family to the Me-One Summer Camp in Ruth Burgess’ name. For more details on the Me-One Foundation, click here!
What Is It?
A 10-week weight loss competition starting on January 17 and ending with a 5K on March 30th! There will be prizes giving for most pounds lost and biggest percentage lost. The entry fee is $25 which goes towards the fundraising and a few supplies (plus a bit of commitment will help keep you honest!). (The 5K will also have an entrance fee but there will be more info on that coming soon).
How Do I Sign Up?
Sign up on ClubRunner or respond to this email. We’ll get you on the list!
When Is the First Weigh In?
Thursday, January 17th at Sierra View, starting at 11:15. Breann Zweck, StayFIT’s owner, will be there to weigh you in. All measurements will be kept by Breann so they will remain confidential!
Some More Details:
  1. Breann and StayFIT are offering membership to her gym for the 10 weeks for $75. StayFIT is a small, friendly gym in Granite Bay where you can go to lift weights and use their cardio equipment. They are also offering private training sessions for $35 which is an amazing deal!
  2. We will be offering some tips and tricks throughout the competition, and feel free to do the same to your fellow competitors (or not, if you want to keep all the glory to yourself!)!
Any questions, please feel free to email Steph Hill at Good luck all!

Rotary Club of Roseville Picture Day!

President Val and Member Doug Clifford arranged for a club picture of the attending membership that day as well as the Board of Directors.  It was a fun gathering!  Our senior member, Mr. David Fiddyment, is celebrating 71 years of perfect attendance with our club.  He is also the senior member of our district.
We tend to be a very serious group.  Community and International service are very important to us but we do like to have fun from time to time...or all the time!

We are so proud of the leadership Ruth has shown and her efforts have helped thousands of children.
