About 10 are needed at 8:30 to help unload the truck, 50 are needed to sign in at 9:30 to help with the packaging, about 10 are needed to help cleanup and reload the truck. We should be all done and out by noon. Please sign up with Robin for a great memorable event!

If you have never attended a Rotary 7630 District Conference, this year’s event is a chance for you to meet other Rotarians in our district, hear about the fabulous projects happening, and participate in a service project – all at a location convenient for us in the northern part of our district. The Chase Center in Wilmington is about as good as it can get. See the weekly Rotary Reminders for full details. It begins with dinner Friday evening, all day programs and service activity on Saturday, dinner and entertainment Saturday night, and a memorial service Sunday morning. You can register for the full package or pick and choose when you want to attend. Stay tuned for more exciting offers!!!

Feb. 21 program:

It was a breakfast party! We celebrated our 20th anniversary one day early with a very special breakfast. If you were not there, you missed the usual fare along with filet mignon, award-winning crab cakes, and champagne! Many thanks to everyone who has held in there with this fabulous club for 20 years.

 

Rarely do we hear about the impact our money has made, especially in global grants. Melissa Stuebing led a 12-Step Literacy free expressive arts training program in Zambia to help those with alcohol and drug addiction. Our club, along with Chestertown, Christiana, Kent Island, Centreville, and the Rotary Club of Lusaka Central, with matching funds from The Rotary Foundation, funded the grant to train more than 100 individuals with 30 organizations to bring the program to their communities. Previously the government would not recognize they had a problem, even though as many as 25% of street children admitted to substance use. As a result of the program, the Ministry of Health has changed its stance and now recognizes drug and substance use as a problem. Your Rotary dollars at work!

Feb. 14 program:

Classifications talks about new members reveal a lot about them!

Jamie Zingaro was born in Elwood City, just outside of Pittsburgh. Ever since he was a kid, he wanted to be a marine biologist. But one course in Marine Biology at Gannen University in Erie, Pa. cured him of that! He graduated in 1984 with a degree in Ecology. Today he is a 30-year associate as part of the communications team in charge of the intranet at W. L. Gore and Associates. He enjoys being outdoors gardening, running, hiking and biking.

Stewart Lee comes from Baltimore from  a culturally diverse family, with a father who is Chinese and mother who is American. He always wanted to be a doctor and majored in Chemistry at University of Virginia. But Stewart describes himself as the poster child for not getting a job in his college major. He is a community banker at Howard Bank, probably the only community banker in the country with a degree in chemistry.He likes golfing, running, going to sporting events and many concerts..

Feb. 7 program:

Imagine having to go to court and face your adversary. Now imagine having to do it wthout a lawyer. Legal Services of Delaware and Combined Campaign For Justice help ensure people get access to justice regardless of their education level or inability to pay. Douglas Canfield, executive director of Legal Services, says having an attorney determines your outcome. The Services help more than 12,000 people each year, with 85% of them living under the federal poverty guidelines. Even with that many being helped, the 26 lawyers can help only 20% of those in Delaware who need help. Due to budget liitations, close to 20,000 people go unserved each year. The courtroom door are closed to those without an attorney.

The best Rotary clubs are ones that are organized. Our President Elect Evelyn Hayes has worked to get our committees functioning and reporting regularly to the club. Here was the first round of reports:

Foundation: Fred Dawson highlighted how we give to the Rotary Foundation. We are one of the few clubs who reach $100 per capital every year, with every member contributing. Our all time giving to TRF is $241,000.

Fundraising: Cindi Viviano reported we have $17,000 so far in ads sold for the 2019 Report to the Community. Reach out to her for help as needed.

Scholarships: Clinton has led the charge for the last four years in scholarships to James H. Groves Adult High School. In four years we have awarded $30,000.

January 31, 2019       Be An Inspiration!

 

Jan. 24 program:

What an inspiration to see our grant dollars at work! Three of the Little Masters Players entertained us with their musical prowess as a result of our $11,000 grant to supply students from under served communities with musical instruments of their own along with lessons from UD music program students. In February a second round of students will get their instruments. Thank you, Michael Luck for overseeing this grant.

 

We also got to say goodbye to two long time members. Mary Konwinski will be relocating to North Carolina and Gene Dannemann will be moving to Glen Mills, Pa. We will miss both of you.

 

And our fond remembrances of Steve Amick brought tears to our eyes. Steve was a charter member and will always be in our hearts.

Founded in 1996, Fresh Start is the non-profit arm of Wilmington Women in Business, providing scholarships to local women with financial need. Current President Sarah Kenney-Cruz explained how many women could advance their careers if they had the necessary education.
