Lodi Rotary Is: Interesting
Presidential Kick Out for Chris Littlefield Dan Ingrum finds another way to leave office Past Presidents Meet with King Tut Pat Patrick survives his year as President of the Lodi Rotary Club

Lodi Rotarians, welcome to the new Rotary Year! 

Our Board of Directors this year will include Kirk as President-Elect, Greg as President Nominee, Brian as Treasurer, Bob as Secretary, Joe as Rotary Foundation as well as Vocational Service, Paul as Media Chair, Rev. Dave as Head Sergeant-At-Arms, Dan as Youth Services Chair, Pat as Membership, and leading our newly formed Lodi Rotary Foundation Board, Phil Lenser.  Volunteering, and delegating, members of Phil’s Board will continue to be the Immediate-Past President, current President, and President-Elect.  Brian will handle the treasury and Bob will serve as Secretary.  Additional Board members will be Dan, Mr. Fry, Paul, and Joe.

We continue with our Shrimp Fest we began last year, and a new fundraiser this year will be a Sporting Clay Shoot.  These will be chaired by Pat and Mark, respectively, in January and May.  Please support these efforts as these events will provide our funding for Rotary Service.

Speaking of which, we have many projects in the works.  First of all, our own Jeni Elson will be heading back to Ethiopia to the Ebeneezer Children’s Home with a fist-full of Rotary dollars, and a box or two of shoes and clothing for the children.  Thanks to the Board for approving club funds, and to the members who ponied up additional cash from their own pockets.  These are children with big needs and it is wonderful that we have the opportunity to send the basic things they need with Jeni on her trip.  We wish her safe travel and return!

In August, we will be filling our first “Rotary Gift Boxes for Lodi Shut-Ins”.  These small boxes will be filled with any and all goodies you can beg, buy or otherwise provide.  Each box will contain 4-6 items as a Labor Day gift to Lodi Shut-Ins, and will be delivered by Loel Center with their newly re-instated Meals on Wheels program.  If any Rotarians would like to ride along on the delivery, any and all are welcome to go.  These boxes will be filled with small things; for example, granola bars, applesauce packets, pens, note tablets, candy, cookies, hand sanitizers, small lotion bottles, etc.  Please donate some of these things either from your workplace, your stash or pocket, or volunteer to shop for them with club funds.  Each box will cost no more than $2.50.  We expect to fill between 60-70 boxes for this upcoming Holiday.  We will fill them directly before and directly after our usual club meeting in late August.

Other events in the works…..in September, a real celebration at Woodbridge Golf Club honoring Jerry Fry’s 50 years of Perfect Attendance in Lodi Rotary, an Area One Project to prepare 20,000 dehydrated meals for Kids Against Hunger, and we hope to fill a table with our members at the 180 Teen Center event August 26 at Wine & Roses (just need 6 more!)

Have a great August.  Do well.  More importantly, do good. Serve Humanity.
