Ambler Rotary Wheel 2018 - 2019 Volume 94, Edition 28

"On second thought, I do like to brag. 'Cause I'm mighty proud of that ragged old flag." - Johnny Cash


june 5, 2019

Another great meeting this week. We pledged, sang, prayed and laughed. And in that order.


  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?


Lots of guests this week! But I lost the list so you will just have to believe me.

These poor bastards getting older AND had to listen to us serenade them poorly. They each received a box of Depends.....

David Levy, sponsored by Michael Locati was inducted into the Ambler Rotary Club today! Please make a point to get to know David.


Lots of Happy Rotarians!

Dick Booth was happy to share the meaning of flag day and the history of the flag.

Steve Bass is always happy.

Leigh is happy to be back from Germany and the Rotary International Convention. She is on fire for her year as President! I am doing my best to not hand you a pile of ashes Leigh!

Jim was happy to announce his Granddaughter was at lunch with him. It was also her birthday and was forced to listen to us sing to her~

Geoff was happy to remind everyone that the Rotary Year is fast coming to an end and now is the time to get any last minute contributions to the foundation in. Please contact Geoff directly to make your donations before the end of June.

Anne and her husband were VERY HAPPY to announce that through all their years of travel they have now written a book! Too cool. Tourists is available through Amazon but if you order directly from Anne, you will get a discount and they will autograph it for you.


We once again were blessed to hand out two grants at this week's lunch.

Once again we are proud to support the Kelly Anne Dolan Memorial Fund and recognize them for their wonderful works.

We are also excited to give a $4,930 grant to the Wissahickon Fire Department to help them purchase some needed new equipment.


It's also that time of year that we honor the outstanding students at the local High Schools for their dedication to the community and their commitment to Service Above Self. This week we were honored to present scholarship checks to two students:

Hiten Dudhat, graduating from Germantown Academy will be attending Penn State

Annabelle Laughlin, Upper Dublin High School will be attending Washington University, St. Louis


CHANGEOVER DINNER!!!! Everyone is happy that Prez Clint's year is fast approaching an end. Changeover Dinner will be June 26th at the William Penn Inn at 5:30p. More info to come.

We ordered t-shirts for everyone who signed up for one - red for most and pink for those that wanted pink (Paul Kelly....). We also ordered extras just in case you forgot to sign up for one. Cost will be $10/each. A huge thank you to Anthony Gallo with Minuteman Press for handling this!


No speaker this week! Just lots of moola to give away!


White T!


Please remember our BHAG of having 100 members before 2025 when our club turns 100.


Well well well......looks like Prez Tex took home the coveted prize.....

  • Clint Ehlers - 330
  • Eric Faddis - 220
  • Michael Locati - 115
  • Jim Auch - 110
  • Paul Kelly - 100
  • Walt West - 15
  • Sam Swansen - 5
  • Peter Urban - 5
  • Leigh DeTato - 5
  • Dick Target - 5

Now that the contest is over, let's continue our efforts to grow our club!

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 6 years to grow our club.
