April 4 program:

Planning for her year as our fearless leader, Evelyn Hayes led a discussion on potential projects or activities that members would like us to consider for 2019-2020. Suggestions included: doing a service project on Community Day, working with kids aging out of foster care, attracting more women into the club, get-together at a park event, antique auto show, something to replace Downes homework club, a sustainable project that we can initiate and other organizations participate in, expending work with JA, work with schools on their public events, involve PTA’s on dictionary project, career fair, bring more people to Main Street during time of construction, bike project????

Also suggested was more press coverage and recognition for our work in the community.

If you have any other ideas, please send to Evelyn before next week so she can compile the list.

Soap, toothpaste, bug spray and other items of importance were packed this morning in 40 bags for summer counselors at Camp Fairlee.Many thanks to everyone who contributed. The bags will be delivered to Camp Fairlee in the next week.

Mike Reckner tried to escape for a second cup of coffee and was caught. So he had to give his classification talk! He is a partner with Weiner Benefits Group, specializing in all aspects of employee benefits. Mike was a member of this club but left 14 years ago due to family commitments. But he is back and we are happy to have him again!

Clinton Tymes, the story teller, is a charter member of our club, He recalled his long career with UD in the Small Business Center, days of growing up in Wilmington, and mentoring the younger generation of grandkids. “It’s been a great life,” says Clinton.

Good news is that we sold about $45,000 of ads for the 2019 Report to the Community. Bad news is we fell way short of last year’s amount of $56,000 and of our goal for this year. Last chance to bring in anymore potential revenue. Please make that last push!

March 21 program:

The Civil War was a bloody time in our nation’s history. It was even more challenging for those whose religion forbade them going to war. The Quakers were staunch abolutionists but their extreme patriotism made them willing to fight for the Union in order to free the slaves. Henry Gawthrop was one of 8 Quaker officers in the 4th Delaware volunteer infantry, Company F. In the last major battle of the war in 1865, at Five Forks, Va., Gawthrop was struck in the foot. After having his foot amputated, he returned home to Wilmington to convalesce.  Wearing an artificial leg, he returned to desk duty  at Harp Island, NY. His memoirs and letters are the most complete description of the Civil War. Our speaker today, Justin Carisio, has written a book about Gawthrop, why he fought, where he fought and how he dealt with his wounds. His book,” A Quaker Officer in the Civil War” is available on Amazon.

March 14 program:

V&M Bistro, owned and operated by the Carrierri-Russo family, is a success story that has its roots in the Mola Di Bari region of Italy. The two families immigrated to America, bringing their strong work ethics and desire for success to build a future for their families of generations to come. One opened Lenny’s Pizza in New York, the other opened a supermarket. Zeno’s Pizza, a staple in the Christiana Mall Food Court for more than 20 years, was owned by their son. Today they would be proud of their third generation in the restaurant industry. Opened in 2014, V&M, named for the grandmothers, Vincenzo and Margareta, is run by six members of the family. Italo, the business manager, attributes their success to discipline and good team chemistry. The American – Italian restaurant is located in the Marsh Triangle Shopping Center.

March 7 program:
Since Bob Older was 15, he has had a passion for small business. Many years and lots of entrepreneurial ventures later, he turned that passion into an organization to serve other small business owners. The Delaware Small Business Chamber, now seven years old, has 273 members from businesses with one to 100 employees who support the small business community and give back to build the community. Fundraisers all year long help support scholarships and grants. A one-time grant is given to businesses that open in empty store fronts. Last year $10,000 was re-invested into the small business community.

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!

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..

Rotary HAD Heart

Just for one day, 11 Rotarians showed they had heart by donating 260 items, weighing in at 204 pounds. Mike Luck had 76 items and Paul Keely had the heaviest at 47 lbs. Thank you Jamie Zingaro for helping with the logistics of weighing and counting and Steve Worden for delivering everything to The Food Bank of Delaware.

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.

Jan. 31 program:

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:

Membership: Paul Keely has assembled a crack team to work on recruiting, retention, and outreach to the other Newark area clubs. A Rotary Discovery Night will be held April 24, 5:30 – 6:30 to introduce prospective members to Rotary.

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.

Administration: Robin reported on the roll out of the new club website. Thank you, Paul K., for the many hours you devoted to this. There are a few items still to be added. The weekly club bulletin will now be available online at https://nmrde.org.
