Rotary Club of Carmichael
April 3, 2018
On February 23, 1905, Paul Harris, a Chicago attorney; Gustavus Loehr, a mining engineer; Silvester Schiele, a coal miner and Hiram Shorey, a merchant tailor gathered in Loehr’s office for what would become known as the first Rotary club meeting.
Harris’s desire for camaraderie among business associates brought together these four men and eventually led to an international organization of service and fellowship.
This set the framework for membership in
Rotary and formed Rotary’s historic commitment to vocational service, the second of Rotary’s five avenues of service.  Each club strives to create a microcosm of its community’s business and professional leaders and today we are comprised of 1.2 million members in 137 countries.
Vocational Service calls on Rotarians to empower others by using their unique skills and expertise to address community needs, to promote high ethical standards in all their business dealings and to recognize the worthiness of all useful occupations.
Tonight, we have the distinct honor to recognize a member of our community who epitomizes the basic concepts of vocational service and works tirelessly with the youth.
Deputy Joe Gordon moved from the Bay Area to Sacramento in 2008.  He graduated from Sac State with a BA in International Business and Marketing. Deputy Gordon is a three-year member of the Sacramento County Sheriff’s Department and was awarded top academic honors for his academy class. He was assigned to the Sacramento Main Jail where he supervised protective custody and psychiatric inmates.  After working in custody, Deputy Gordon was assigned to the Main Jail Compliance Team where he investigated assaults inside the jail and he works with the district attorney’s office on alternative treatment programs including the Chronic Nuisance Offender Program.  Deputy Gordon also worked on the facility ADA Compliance and the Prison Rape Elimination Act.
Deputy Gordon worked patrol and has earned his current assignment with the Youth Services Unit.  Joe is involved in numerous youth outreach programs through the Sheriff’s Activities League and Sheriff’s Community Impact Program including the Youth Leadership
Academy, SHOCK Diversion Academy, Street Hockey, Read Across America, Shop with a Cop AND CSUS Law Enforcement Summer
Deputy Gordon is also a Terrorism Liaison Officer, Auxiliary Recruiter and works in the 911 Call Center.  On Thursdays, in his spare time, he finds time to wash his wife’s (Alexandria’s) car and mow the lawn.
On a personal note, Joe is married to Alexandra and they are expecting their first child. 
Joining us tonight is Joe’s wife, Alexandra and his immediate supervisor Captain Steve Ferry.   
Captain Ferry began his career in Law Enforcement in 1988 and has been assigned to most of the divisions within the Sheriff’s Department.  He has been honored with assignments such as K-9, Internal Affairs, CSI and Major Narcotics.
Captain Ferry, who will introduce Deputy Gordon and is his boss and mentor,  is a recognized expert in narcotic enforcement and has provided drug education to countless schools, concerned parent groups and professional organizations.He has a Bachelor’s Degree in Social Science and a Master’s Degree in Public Administration and is currently the Commander of the Field Support Division.
He is a life-long resident of Sacramento and holds a strong belief in Public Service.
Sounds like Rotarian material to me!! Captain Ferry will provide us with additional information as to why Joe was chosen to receive the 2017-18 Police Officer of the Year Award.
Captain Ferry said a few words of praise and explained why Deputy Gordon deserves the honor of being Carmichael's Rotary Club Policeman of the year. He especially extolled his work in youth services in which Deputy Gordon has excelled.
Deputy Joe Gordon thanked the Rotary Club for their distinct honoring of him. On a personal note, he mentioned that his parents divorced and with no dad living at home, he did some dumb things. He attended Sac State and then got a job involving cell phone sites in the San Jose area. He kind of got dismayed with his job and got to know a policeman and liked the profession. He got a degree in business and went to the police academy and served inmates in jail and found that so much of the job is talking to people. So now he is in Youth Services and wanted to compliment the CARMICHAEL ROTARY CLUB for helping to buy the van for youth services. Joe said that the van goes all over the area doing field trips taking at risk kids to interesting places that help to educate them about the wider world. For instance the van goes to different schools where the kids get to play various sports, they have programs and talk about the dangers of the internet. Joe said that probably the most powerful place they go is to the prison where they hear the stories of the inmates.
Then there is the girl's circle from the ladies division where they have programs like basketball and they talk about cyber safety and the dangers of human trafficking. Joe says that his work is the greatest and that he knows that his job makes a difference.
Almost as an afterthought with all the great things that Deputy Gordon mentioned, President Dick informed Joe that a book will be dedicated in his name to the Carmichael library.

Another successful crab feed was completed thanks to the absolute 100 participation by members of our Club in addition to spouses, friends, family and some Rotarians from the Rancho Cordova Club. who paid us back for our participation in their recent crab feed. Again we had the best crab available (we got lots of complements) and the best soup (clam chowder) by our authentic Portuguese member, Tony Marques, great salad a la Chef Jeff Thompson and others in the kitchen - like Tim Marquess and Vince Iosso. Now the Sundance Kid did great as auctioneer and getting people up to dance, Chairman Greg Herrera was very proud of the effort with the dessert, silent and live auction and of the boys from the Jesuit High School baseball team who served our over 350 patrons.  I'm sure we did well and made money for our various charities....
Sarah Freese and Bella Lopez (our third student Courtney Warner was not able to attend)
Each student spoke in tandem about their experiences as RYLA students this last year. They got on a bus with a bunch of strangers and at the end of the week at camp, they were all best friends. They had to forego using their cell phones.  They laughed, they cried and told some of their most intimate secrets to each other - it was very emotional. What they learned and practiced was to "Be the best kind of Self" and to put out "Outstanding Effort". They would share life stories and do exercisers like playing "Cross the Line", if you have something high risk to say, then you "Crossed the Line". They were asked to keep a log of all of their experiences and played "Brain Olympics" were they learned to be a "team player", had rope course in which they learned to trust one another,  and broke a book with their bare hands (see photo above - in Bella's hands". Both Sarah and Bella said that the experience for many made them more outgoing (Neither Sarah or Bella have a problem with shyness).  Individually, you got in touch with "who you are". It was, it seems, a happy transforming experience for both of them (and, I am sure, for Courtney also.) It was a wonderful inspiring presentation and their enthusiasm was very catching.   pic below:

On Saturday, January 20, 2018, some 8 hard working souls (5 of which are Rotarians) showed up at the behest of our president, Dick Bauer, to plant 20 (twenty) Oak trees at the Effie Yeaw Nature Center in Carmichael.
It seems that, in this particular area of the park, Oak trees were dying – probably due to shifting of underground water from the American River and new trees needed to be planted. We started at a little after 9 a.m. and after instructions from Mary Maret, Nature Resource person, we got after the planting which took a couple of hours. Satisfied in our efforts, we happily went on to other things on a nice, but cold, Saturday. More pics below:

Shyama Chakroborty and Phil Danz - Proud of their work!
So, for lo these many years, at Christmas time, our Club again filled boxes with food (and a turkey) and delivered them to approximately 100 needy families. It showed the potential of our Club to bring some 40+ people (members, family, & friends) together for a good cause and the work went very smoothly. A big THANK YOU should be given to Rich Plath for his leadership of the project and to high schools in the area for providing us with the names and addresses of the needy families.  Pics below:

the effie yeaw nature fest 

We Carmichael Rotarians and friends, on Saturday, October 8, 2017 accomplished one of our most enjoyable service events, namely, manning a Rotary Food Court and the Effie Yeaw Nature Fest. Early in the morning we set up our food court tent and got the kitchen ready, all under the watchful eye of our professional food guru, Jeff Thompson. We served big soft pretzels, nachos with cheese and/or Jalapenos, lemonade, hot dogs, and tasty Caesars salad with or without chicken. Perhaps 25 or more Rotarians and friends participated in all aspects of the event, that consisted of food preparation and cooking and running the food down to the food court (about 200 feet away). We were busy as bees. The event went on from 9:30 in the morning to after 3 p.m.
What was most enjoyable was seeing the many wonderful parents and young children (I’m told over a thousand), enjoying themselves and learning a about nature and the many wild creatures that live in our area.

Richard Olebe

Stan Roe introduced our speaker and new member of our Club, Richard Olebe.  He said that Richard is a graduate of the University of Nairobi, with a degree in engineering, and has two master's degrees from Stanford.
Richard, who was born and raised in Uganda, came to the U.S. and has worked for the California Department of Water Resources for 25 years and has lived in Carmichael for 35 years. He has been discussing this project for months with our Club's elite coffee clutch group from 7-9 a.m. on Fridays.
Richard started a slide show and outlined the proposed water project in Iyolwa, Uganda. He said a big problem there is the people have contaminated water. Young girls have to walk hours every day to fetch water for their families. This has an effect of keeping them out of school. Also disease is a big problem.
Richard says that collecting water that is contaminated is a problem, and the wells  there are shallow and not deep enough to get to clean water. So what could help their water needs?   Water gravity flow from rivers, but at times the rivers run dry, Dams on the rivers - too expensive, treat water with chemicals, it won't work, and the easiest solution is to drill wells and pump water to  big tanks and then distribute it to different localities. The wells have to be deep enough to get to the clean water, Richard estimates that 5 wells that are 300 ft deep and 3 big water tanks would fit the needs of 10,000 people. And the pumping of the water could be run by solar power.
The results of the water project would be healthier people and the girls could go to school which would greatly benefit the families.
How expensive would the project be?
Richard estimates - Five wells might cost $80,000; Water storage tanks - $80,000; water and distribution lines - $25,000 and spare parts $15,000.
Total $200,000. Richard estimates it will take 3 years for completion. 
How could we fund the project? First get a commitment from our Club to sponsor such a project and allocate 4-5 thousand dollars. Go to other Clubs in our District and hopefully get like commitments and then use matching grants.
One idea also is to ask "friends of friends" in our Facebook pages, to give to our Club foundation for the project.
Richard asked the opinion of the assemblage at the meeting and if there was anyone  opposed to looking into going ahead with the project. There was no one opposed, all were in favor. Richard plans to travel to Uganda (at his own expense) in June and talk to the people in Iyolwa, their Chief and government to iron out details. There will be ongoing cost of maintenance and the community will collect money enough to run the system for 10 years and must be in place before starting. It is an exciting project and probably doable if we put all the pieces together!
As a sweet addition to Richards presentation, we had a guest at the meeting,
Deepak Chabra, M.D. who is a retired Kaiser urologist and friend of Walter Malhoski, M.D.  Deepak has spent some time in Uganda and gave us an overview of the need there. He said that he is a member of the Church of Latter Day Saints (L.D.S.) and he went on a Mission in Uganda. He said that Lake Victoria is the biggest lake in the world. In Uganda there is the highest birth rate because so many of the children die young. The life expectancy is just 58 and 1/2,  They are in dire need and help for clean water. They are 80% Christian and 20% Muslim. Deepak very much supports the proposed water project.

We had a good day for our signature event, the 38th annual Carmichael golf tournament whose proceeds go directly to Easter Seals. Some 123 or so golfers attended Ancil Hoffman Golf Course and enjoyed a good lunch, practiced tee shots, entered a putting contest or otherwise had the opportunity to have their picture taken with two lovely Sacramento King dancers.
Then shotgun golf ensued for 18 holes.
There was provided plenty of water, beer, and at on certain holes, ribs, tacos and beautifully tasty and potent margaritas.
The day was topped off with various prizes for special feats, like longest drive, closest to the hole, and, of course, best score.
Pacific Coast made our event with a donation of $40,000 and other businesses put in over $12 thousand  as sponsors with various sums of money. Many raffle tickets were sold and great prizes were provided.
All in all, the Carmichael Rotary Club, the Sponsors, and all participants can be proud of the support given to many sick children served by Easter Seals. The total amount donated over the years is well over $1,000,000!
Below are a few pictures, most of which were taken by Brett Schneider of ALCAL who graciously allowed our Club to publish them.
We did it again!
December 21& 22, 2016, will be remembered as another successful Christmas Baskets event which started a while back (few months) with the procuring of apple boxes, and then assembling the food and the delivering of them to needy families in the Carmichael area and beyond. I am told by the “God Father”, Jim Thompson that the Christmas Baskets project goes back to 1948 when our Club was founded and has been a continuous event. So, in continuing with our tradition, the 40 or so volunteers assembled & delivered the baskets to around 100 families......
Kudos must be given to our special Carmichael Interact Club of Del Campo High School who amassed much of the needed can goods and to Del Dayo Elementary School and WinCo Foods on Greenback Ave.
Also thanks should be given to the friends and spouses of our Rotarians and a special thanks to the two Passport Rotarians, Jim Quinney and Jan Valine, volunteers who diligently worked right along with us.
Also, a special thanks should be given to Mark & Monica’s Family Pizza ( 4751 Manzanita Ave, Carmichael, (916) 487-1010, who donated their delicious pizza’s on both days for our sustenance while we worked.

Carmichael Park Bench Project - The Placement of Benches
The Carmichael Park Picnic Table Project was the brainchild of ex Carmichael Rotary Club President Ed Bunting with input from Sharon Ruffner and Ken Hall of the Carmichael Park Foundation . By donating $3000 to the Carmichael Park Foundation and receiving a $3000 matching Rotary District 5180 grant, the Carmichael Rotary Club was able to purchase 7 cement picnic tables to be placed in the park on concrete platforms. Five of platforms were already in place , but two needed to be constructed. On October 29, under the supervision of Rotarian Jay Boatwright, and with the help of Kyle Deller, project manager with Teichert Construction , Rotarians Rich Plath, Steve Girard, Walt Malhoski, Phil Danz, and Dick Bauer along with four Carmichael Park employees, Ron Shilliday, James Perry, Curtis La Duke, and Mark Dexter, concrete was poured to form two 8 x 12 ft. platforms and an additional small platform for a BBQ grill. On November 14 the seven benches were delivered to the park and placed on the appropriate platforms. Tim Berry of Berry Lumber donated the necessary lumber. The Project was managed by Community Service Chairman, Dick Bauer and Keith Madison, Park Services Manager under the direction of Tarry Smith, District Administrator of the Carmichael Park District. A terrific project that will be used by patrons of Carmichael for many years to come! (more pics below)
The very heavy benches were placed on the cement platforms, once there, they were permanent.
From Ken Hall, President, Carmichael Park Foundation
“Thank you again to Carmichael Rotary.  The benches will serve our park visitors for years to come and I bet all of them will give an appreciative nod for your help.  The park serves thousands in our community and your support is a wonderful contribution.
Thank you for your generous donation.”

Carmichael Rotary's Effie Yeaw Nature Center Food Project
Sunday, October 9, 2016 turned out to be a beautiful day for a festival at the Effie Yeaw Nature Center. Many exhibits were set up  and informative lectures given regarding the animals which thrive in Northern California. Within the different spread out exhibits, our Club set up a food stand and , under the watchful eye of our culinary expert, Jeff Thompson prepared food in the near adjacent kitchen. We sold cheese nachos with or without jalapeno peppers, big warm pretzels, hot dogs, salad and lemonade. Hundreds of customers, mostly young families with kids lined up to buy our goods. Over half of the Club showed up and worked the court and in the kitchen, in shifts, from 9:30 in the morning until after 3:00 p.m. Those who participated ( that I know of ) were: 
Dick Bauer – Chairman – Kari Bauer ( photos ), Phil Danz, Chuck McBride, Mark & Carol Beil, Mark Urban, Greg Herrera, Mo McBride, Stan Roe, Stephen Girard, Walter Malhoski, Jeff Thompson, Tom Thompson, Tim Marquess, Vince Iosso, Donna & Everett Thorne, and
John Mangels. (hope I didn't miss anyone).
A project like this one is what makes Rotary so much fun!

Our six speech contestants, above, one from Del Campo H.S. and five from Victory Christian H. S.
Speech Chair Phil Danz kicked off the contest by welcoming everyone and going over the rules. He then began the contest by welcoming each speaker (by number) and each gave a 5 to 8 minute speech on the topic "Be a Gift to the World".
The contestants were remarkably good and the Judges had a difficult time picking 1st, 2nd, and 3rd winners, but did award $200 to Sarah Freese and an invitation to the Regional Speech Contest on April 4th at the Double Tree Inn (Sacramento);  2nd place and $100 went to Karina Kamyshin; 3rd and $50 was awarded to Victoria Neptune. 
Others, coming in a close 4th were Sam Villalpando, Tanner Coppernoll, and Victoria Buszinski.
Kudos are in order for those who made the contest work, George Abraham, who acted as co-chair and helped set everything up; Timekeeper Stan Roe; Judges Shyama Chakorboty, Jay Dudley ( Alan Gallaway's friend from Toastmasters) and Judy Sweeney. The tellers were Everett & Donna Thorne; and our menacing Sgt. at Arms duo, John Walton and Stephen Girard. Also impressive were the 10-15 parents and family who were there to support the contestants. (Thanks to Terry Sweeney for helping with the "notes" and to Tim Marquess for taking pictures, some are below:)

It is one of the signature aspects of our Club that when we do a project, we all chip in and everybody contributes, not only just members, but past members, family and "friends" of our Club. This was certainly true of the 2016 Carmichael Crab Feed at La Sierra Community Center on Saturday night.
Auctioneer David Stone did his magic while the Sundance Kid provided great music and dancing.

A SUCCESSFUL CRAB FEED - President Ed Bunting

Great Crab feed, thank you to everyone for your help and participation.  As you know, the Rancho Cordova Rotary provided helpers for our event so we could break away and enjoy some crab.  Now Father John needs your help so we can return the favor on Saturday, February 20th.We open our doors at 6:00 pm and I would like four volunteers in the bars, two at ticket sales and four in the kitchen. The Kitchen crew really doesn't get started until 6:30. See you on February 20 St John Vianney church 10497 Coloma rd. Rancho Cordova
That's a total of 12 people to sign-up and help.  We had many that raised their hand the other night to volunteer, now we need you to officially sign up.  If you have questions please contact Father John Mangels at
Thank you,

the Carmichael Club helped to buy
(along with Arden-Arcade and Pt. West).
It went on it's first "Rotary Mission"
and delivered the food boxes to two families.
Above are pictures of the goings on of
the loading of the Food and the many
volunteers that got them together and
delivered them. It was quite a logistical
trick and even though management,
namely Rich Plath and Jim Thompson
worried that there would not be enough
delivery vehicles, the members of the
Club along with many "Friends" of our
Club, were up to the task and made
it happen.
An Informational Flyer placed in each Food Basket (below)
Our Family BBQ took place on September 22nd in the spacious outdoors at the residence of MarkCarol Beil. There was more than enough food and drink, prepared by Tony Marques, Tom 
and Jeff Thompson. Sausages and hamburgers and more. The salads and side dishes which were brought by many of the attendees were delicious along with desserts.
Those guests enjoying the festivities were Ann Mangels, Patty Malhoski, Jan Marques, , Jean Marquess, Kari Bauer, Tom Thompson, Erin Drennon and Emily, Barbara Berry, Debbie Plath, Jenny Holmes and David Thorman's childhood buddy from Texas, the one and only Paul Harris.

Celebrity Chef David Thorman

Amanda Walker from Gold River bid $500 at our 2015 Rotary Crab Feed last February and won a Texas Dinner for 10 that was held at David and Dana’s last Saturday night.  Chef BoyarDavid was assisted by sous chef Dana, Carmichael Board members George, Vince, Stan (and his wife Nan), and sommelier Walt.
The dinner included a BBQ’d shrimp appetizer, guacamole and chips (provided by Vicky), BBQ’d ribs and chicken, New York steaks, grilled corn on the cob, Texas pork and beans, Texas cornbread with mild chilies, wedge salads, and a fresh fruit layered trifle and chocolate cake for dessert.  This was all washed down with Margaritas, beer and wine.
Amanda’s guests were Dave Harden, Laura and Gregg Duffin (plus Caryl Klein, Laura's Mother visiting from Missoula Montana), Elizabeth and Pete Pullen, Gloria Oates, and Linda and Roy Vogel (a Arden Arcade Rotarian).
A grand time was had by all (including the Rotary hosts).


Former District Attorney Jan Scully gave a very comprehensive presentation on the soon to open Family Justice Center being developed by the Sacramento County District Attorney’s Office and Sacramento State’s College of Health and Human Services.
She explained that the Center will bring together forty agencies to help victims of domestic violence, child abuse, elder abuse and child trafficking.  Currently victims must go to each of the forty agencies to get help and support which is arduous and discouraging.
She talked about the difficulties of breaking the cycle of abuse.  Victims become totally dependent on their abuser and once there is intervention tend to not follow through with charges, letting the abuser go free.  The abused then return to their abusive circumstances and the cycle continues.
By having a safe haven where active support is available, the abused will have a better chance early intervention, of getting their life together and following through on charges against the abuser.  There will be a focus on children, hoping to break the abuse cycle.
While the community will be the center’s primary beneficiary, Sacramento State instructors and students also will benefit through opportunities for faculty research, student internships and community service.
Funding for the Center will be provided by local governments, federal and state governments, a foundation and grants. 
The Family Justice Center will be a place free from violence, restoring hope and allowing families to thrive.
Additional information on the Center can be obtained at
President Ed Bunting mentioned to Jan that, "in honor of her lecture", a book in her name will be donated to the Carmichael Library.

Joanne Tremeling

Joanne Tremelling has come to us today to talk about shocking happenings called “Human Trafficking”, particularly “sex trafficking” of minor children that has spread around the world and is prevalent in the Sacramento Region. She is a member of the Soroptimist Club of Folsom/ El Dorado Hills and the Stop Trafficking Task Force Coordinator overseeing approximately 60 clubs in the Sierra Nevada Region.
Joanne said the “sex trafficking of children” is not in your backyard- it’s in your front yard.
There are approximately 130 kids being followed by the Sacramento County Probation Department who have been rescued by law enforcement. The average age of the children trafficked is 12-14 for girls and 11-13 for boys. They are kidnapped, drugged and put into prostitution. Incarceration is not the answer.
These children are victims. Many of the children that are trafficked are runaways from Foster Care. Many go unreported as missing.
The perpetrators come on as a romantic or a bully. The romantic promises things to the child, the bully will threaten harm to the child or the child’s family.
The longevity of children trafficked is from 3-7 years. They die from Aids, being HIV positive, sexually transmitted diseases or a general malaise. Neglected children are the most vulnerable.
Joanne talked about a court hearing recently on 14 girls where only 3 parents showed up.
Soroptimist Clubs are supplying clothing, hygiene products, backpacks and gift cards to the children who have been rescued. The Linnus Project has provided afghans and quilts. Notes have been added to the backpacks saying “someone cares”.
In a sweep last summer across several states, the buyers of these kids were found to be 40% college educated and approximately 50% married.
It is useful for the girls in recovery to go to the schools and talk to the students about their experience.
Tell people in your life about this phenomenon. If you see a child that you suspect is being trafficked, call 911 and ask for a welfare check on a minor child.
Because of Sacramento County’s freeway system, Sacramento has become a hub for trafficking.
Placements for these kids are a challenge.
There is a shift taking place for the kids rescued from law enforcement to Health and Human Services.
They need protection, but also therapy services.
Perpetrators are now going to prison.  Some of the grant money coming to the states from the Federal Government may use “Wounded Warriors “to monitor the programs.
 A grateful President Ed Bunting mentioned that “in honor of her presentation”, a book will be donated to the Carmichael Library.
   This weekend, the Ancil Hoffman River Walk was the site of Carmichael Rotarians at work.
   Ten years ago, the Carmichael Rotarians brought to the Ancil Hoffman River Walk, eight new benches as part of the Centennial Rotary International Celebration.
   Now, each subsequent year, out comes the weed whacker, wood cleaner, and a diligent work force for the annual bench maintenance project.
   After ten years, the benches are showing wear and tear which has led to Carmichael Rotary’s decision to replace a bench a year. This year’s new bench sports a plaque placed in honor of the lifetime service of Vic Borgman, a dedicated Carmichael Rotarian.

The Rotary Club of Carmichael was founded way back in 1948. In the many years since, the Club has accomplished many humanitarian projects, perhaps too many to mention in this space. Right now, we are proud of the over $1,000,000 dollars that has been contributed over the last 20 years to Easter Seals through our annual golf tournament. Image

We also put on a Crab Feed in January-February that is very popular in our area and increasingly is attended by more and more people. The proceeds from this fund-raiser goes exclusively to many good works in the area.

Some of our charity projects are providing support for the Effie Yeaw preserve by providing benches and selling food and drinks, and helping out at some of their events.



We also help sponsor and provide food for special olympics events.

We provide Dictionaries to young students and some scholarships.

We also participate in a Rotary Speech Contest that allows the winner to have a chance at going to the District Contest and win $1000.

Along with Rotary International projects such as Polio Plus (which is eradicating polio world wide). We are a gregarious group of local business men and women who have enjoyed the fun of fellowship while doing good in the world.
