Ambler Rotary Wheel 2017 - 2018 Volume 93, Edition 39

may 16th meeting

I know.....

Prezy Paul was absent and Clint had the chance to hone in some skills leading the motley crew. We pledged. We sang. And Clint led us in prayer while channeling Steve Bass who was absent from his duties.


  1. Is it the TRUTH?
  2. Is it FAIR to all concerned?
  3. Will it build GOODWILL and better friendships?
  4. Will it be BENEFICIAL to all concerned?


Dick Booth - who is always happy - had 80 more reasons to be happy as he turns the half way mark with his 80th birthday this month!

Donna was also happy for the appreciation the Club has for her talent and service in playing for us each week.

Mathew (Eric was sleeping when he spoke so there is no photo apparently) was happy that his wife survived her first commencement service while exercising her core stomach muscles.

Peter Urban was happy (again Eric....where are ya dude!) that his baby girl got a healthy check up, is going to be tall and was baptized. Not in that order.

Steve Bass....was happy that while he was late, Clint covered for him.


We were light on guests and visitors having only one new prospective member - Kelly Anne Rupprecht, Director @ Twin Spring Farm. Welcome Kelly!


No tree announcements. YEA! I hear it went well. Photo proof below:

Clint announced that his Board is finally full! He proposed for vote and approval the following:

  • Leigh DeTato - 1st VP
  • Jan Sandler - 2nd VP
  • Liz Kunzier - Board Member
  • Anne Frank - Board Member
  • Alain DuPlat - Board Member
  • John McAneney - Board Member (to replace Jan Sandler)

I would like to also thank John McAneney for his willingness to step up for 2nd VP as well. Fortunately for him, Jan had accepted a few days prior.....


Due to a conflict with the Rotary International Convention, Club Changeover Dinner has been rescheduled for July 11.


The Board voted on and accepted the application for membership for Gail Farmer. We will induct her at her next meeting!

Clint posed a BHAG (Big Hairy Audacious Goal) to the club to have 100 members by the time the club turns 100 years old in 2025. That gives us just 7 years to grow our club.


Eric Golub - Using humor for better advocacy and unity - was our speaker for the day. He did a 3-hour presentation in about 20min - man he talked fast!!!

He told some stories and he told some jokes - we even laughed at some of them! Very interesting presentation.


Jan Sandler drew the unlucky white t but walked away with a free lunch.


Wednesday June 27: Lunch meeting - Changeover Dinner moved

Wednesday July 11: NEW Changeover Dinner. NO Lunch Meeting

June 23-27th – RI Convention in Toronto, Canada


We have speakers booked through the end of June! But, with the movement of incoming Presidents, we were left without a 2nd VP for the 2018 - 2019 year which means we don't have anyone filling speaking spots starting in July! Now that Jan has stepped up to 2nd VP, we have a lot of ground to make up!

If you have any ideas or requests for specific speakers, please email Jan at janthecarpetman73@gmail.com. Recommendations and suggestions are greatly appreciated!
