February 21, 2019     Be An Inspiration!


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..

Get Educated about Rotary

The Rotary Leadership Institute is a wonderful way to learn more about the organization you joined. The full day session will be held Saturday, March 30, at Maple Dale Country Club in Dover. Register at www.rli33.org and pay the $95 registration fee, then give your receipt to Shawn for reimbursement. Breakfast and lunch are included. Our club recognizes the value in attending RLI and has made the commitment to send any members who want to attend. Parts 1, 2 and 3 are available.


Food packing event a Blast!!!

Schedule your March 30 Saturday morning for fun, fellowship, and helping others less fortunate. A Rise Against Hunger meal packaging event will be held in our rooms at the Courtyard. In a very specific assembly line, we will pack 10,500 meals to be sent to areas of the world that are in need, in schools, orphanages, and communities where food is not easy to obtain.  We need 50 volunteers (Rotarians, family members, high school students, college students, and community members) to help. 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!


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.

Thought for the Week:

Why do banks charge a fee on “insufficient funds” when they know there is not enough money?
