The Lander Rotary  RYLA and YOUNG RYLA (Rotary Youth Leadership Awards) 2017 winners visited the club at our meeting on September 13.  These very poised, enthusiastic and energetic young leaders told the Club about their RYLA camp in Colorado.  Many said this week was " was life changing week for me".  The normal number of youngsters that a club can nominate for this camp is four, two for YOUNG RYLA and two for RYLA.  Thanks to the hard work and enthusiasm of Leslie Calkins, Lander Rotary was able to sponsor ten individuals.

Thanks Leslie for what you do so well!

The Second "bring a guest to lunch free" day was a big success with guests numbering about 15.
The program was the story of the Thermopolis club's efforts to bring clean water and sanitation to villages in an African nation.
With very few members, but with dedicated leadership from Shurie and Phillip Scheer, the Thermopolis club has impacted the lives of thousands of children.
Lander Rotary has been challenged to join them in this endeavor.  
"Bring a guest free day" was a large success Ken Richardson 2017-09-08 06:00:00Z 0

Sam has recently written a historical fiction book. Heavy Green.  Below is the book description:
"By 1967 the Pentagon could see that stopping the flow of weapons into South Vietnam was the only way the United States could win the war. Key to this effort was the aerial bombing of certain supply depots and constriction points along the Ho Chi Minh Trail, but the weather and air defenses of North Vietnam made that task nearly impossible. Taking advantage of the rugged terrain of Laos, and with the help of the Thai Special Forces and the Laotian hill tribes, the CIA put into place a covert program that could pinpoint each of the bombing raids. This top secret operation would tilt the axis of the war, and the North Vietnamese had to counter it. Meticulously researched and based on information classified until 1988, Heavy Green is an epic war novel that tells the story of this secret operation and the daring raid that was designed to bring it down."

Nancy won an Honorable Mention also in the recreation division with her photo "Hiker " taken near Artist's Paint Pots in Yellowstone National Park.

Thanks to our "on the ball" Secretary, Sarah Hamlin these are the highlights of the last Board meeting:

 
  • We were joined by John Brown and Manny Muniz. Thanks to both for taking time out of their day to join us. 
  • The new member social has been tentatively scheduled for Wednesday, February 1. More details to follow. 
  • This year there was outstanding participation from our club in the Salvation Army bell ringing. Go team! 
  • The discussion from Wednesday's meeting, about the appropriateness of programs continued. The board decided that it will not shy away from community issues as programs (even if they are controversial). The board is committee to representing as many sides to an issue as possible. 
  • Just a reminder that a list of upcoming programs can be found on our website (www.landerrotary.org).

A great big thank you to our tireless club Secretary for supplying this information!
THANK YOU SARAH
 
The Rotary Board met this past Wednesday, September 14. Here are a few highlights from the meeting:
 
  • The club is in very good shape financially at this time. This is a combination of a few things, such as having a successful BBQ and Fly In, the change in due structure, and more members asking to be assessed annually for their dues. 
  • The board is looking into requirements to apply for the District's Centennial Grant. This grant will match at 2:1 and could be a way to help fund this year's President's Project. 
  • Vickie, our new exchange student is here and is starting to settle in. 
  • Requirements for blue badges have been tweaked slightly to encourage more engagement from new members. Some of the changes include: setting up an account in ClubRunner, attending a board meeting and 10 lunch meetings (over three months), and propose a meeting program.
As a reminder, these meetings are open to any Lander Rotarian. Our next meeting is scheduled for Wednesday, October 12 at 4:30 p.m. in the NOLS HQ Alumni Conference Room.

After much discussion of Lander Rotary finances, The Board recommended the following dues structure to the membership:
 
Quarterly Dues:  $125.00, an increase of $100.00 per year.
This will more accurately reflect the actual amount that each member costs the club in District and International dues and meal costs.
In short, we will be paying our own way without having to rely on member absences from lunch to pay our way.
 
"Service above Self" Assessments:  A new charge that will be $100.00 each spring and fall quarters, an increase of $200.00 per year.

With approximately 80 members, this should raise approximately $16,000 per year and will come close to covering our Service Fund Expenses of $18,200. per year. 
With this assessment, the membership will no longer be charged for, and expected to sell, additional tickets at our Spring and Fall galas.

 
At the Annual Meeting of the club on June 29, the membership voted to accept this recommendation.
 
 
Just in case you have not noticed, our dues have increased Ken Richardson 2016-07-17 00:00:00Z 0

The ticket sellers enjoy a change of scenery.

The right hand serving line.  Food looks good.

The cooks are hard at it.  (it really is hard work)

 

But with his shift over, Bill gets his food at last.  Good thing that he is a southpaw.

Ken looks like he is very glad to take a seat away from the heat.

Some of the Rotary spouses got in on the work.  Nice hat! 

The commander inspects her troops while they work.

 

Another Rotary spouse working the serving line.  Thanks Nancy.

Would you like onions on that?  Eat them or wear them?

 

Hey Susan is serving lunch more fun than running a clothing store?

Dale is glad that his shift is over.

Anna greets customers with a great smile.
 

Ron's smile isn't bad, but it does not hold a candle to Anna's 

 

Would you like more than four hotdogs?

Trey and Shelli take time out to clown it up for the camera.

 

 

Linda takes a pause for refreshment.  Or wait is that the other drink's slogan?

Leslie indicates that the Interact ice cream sales are booming.

 


The Past President (by 4 days) take part in the work.

The Interact members assist in the cleanup process.

 

 

The interact members look to the Commander in Chief for directions.

 

And Dominick keeps tabs on the job they are doing.

The cleanup crew begins to disassemble tables and pack them away for the 2017 edition of the BBQ

Trey assists with cleanup and contemplates the preparations for next year

May was responsible tor getting the Buffalo meat free for the BBQ again this year. It's great to have her back with the club over the summer.  

 

Bill sneaks by the serving line. Is he hoping that he won't get called on to help?

Although the attendance was sparse, the group sang with gusto.

Linda and Mei Ratz joined their voices. 

Bill is proud of his new face hair.  Wonder when Nancy
will make him take off.  Hang in there, Bill.

The Mayor had a few words for the group.

Marvin joins in the singing.

Mei Ratz presented the program.  She is a very poised young lady. 

Maybe a candidate for membership?

Mackzenzie Lilygren, Lena Warren, Asha Reid and  Jagoe Warren
add their voices to the singing.

Mickey's guest, Baylie Bdullington, enjoys the singing.

And Mickey introduces her guest

Rick Rollino's father, Lou, was a guest again this year.  Always good to see you Lou!

Trey and his wife, Jagoe Warren are enjoying themselves.

The Club honors our weekly server, Angie, with a check and a gift bag.  President Mark made the presentation

Lance Hopkin became our newest member.  Ken pins the Rotary badge on Lance while Lance's boss, Delbert looks on.


Ricks fill in program, "round table topics?" was a hit.  Rick gave a number of those that have speaking talents a unique subject on which to speak for 2-3 minutes.  John Brown's subject delt with why the 6 Lords were leaping.  He took the option of speaking on another subject.

Santa Ernie did quite well with his subject.

As did Mike Lilygren.

Susan spoke about some funny things that had occured in her shop around Christmas time.  Something about a last minute shopping mixup.

Of course the Senator gave an outstanding performance.

Patty anounced that our club would be assisting a Colorado Club in sponsoring an outgoing exchange student next year.

Don't be so serious Ron or Santa won't fill your stocking.

We all know that Gracie has been a good girl this year and that Santa will bring her all kinds of nice things.

We've had some great programs the first three meetings in December

Too bad a lot of Lander Rotarians missed them.
But.. those of us that attended enjoyed them.

Here are some pics from the December 2 meeting.

 
A former Casper Rotary Member and
now a Lander Rotarian, Steve Liebzeit,
gave a great re-classification
talk .  Talk about lots of hobbies (?)
that cause wear and tear on the
body he has had them.  We're glad
you joined us Steve.
A prospective member, Lance Hopkin
visits with member Brady Bower.
Linda Raynolds brought her mother,
May to the meeting.  It's great that
May can still attend the meetings.
Thanks Linda!
 
Andy Gramlich had some words of
wisdom for the club.
 
 
 

We had better attendance at the December 9 meeting.

And this man may be the reason why!
Mike (Moose) Dabich gave the program
on his years as a basketball player.  From
high school under coach Gene Patch to
several college teams and on to the pros.
Told with humor and humility.
Bill Sniffin displays one of Moose's
latest handiwork:  string instruments
made from bed pans.
 
As usual, our beloved president passes the
tin cup to collect fines.  He is getting too
good at it.
Susan Meeker is the finer on this fine
day.  Of course Mark is right behind her
with the dreaded tin cup.
Linda Hudson explains to the group the
schedule for ringing bells for the Salvation
Army.  Again, the Lander Rotary Club raised
a nice tidy sum for this worthwhile cause.
 
The long and the short of it.  Mickey
Douglas and Mike Vinich team up for
a special photo.
Patty Troutman brought her husband, Gary
to enjoy Moose's presentation.
Jackson Rotarian, Katie Murphy addresses
the meeting.  Wonder if the Jackson clubs
have as off-beat programs as we have in Lander.

We enjoyed a super program at the December 16 meeting

Of Course Santa Sheriff showed up to
find out who had been naughty and nice.
Since he is the "high sheriff" none of us
'fessed up to being naughty!  Although we
were all nice, Santa Sheriff fined every last
one of us.
Steve Liebzeit brought his Daughter, Faith
and her "intended" to the meeting.  December
19th was her birthday; of course she got serenaded
along with all of the rest of the birthday people.
The Program was great.  Newest member, Sam
Lightner gave his classification talk.  Sam is a
climber, author, and all around nice guy.  We're
glad that he joined us.  He is in the company of
several other Lander Rotarians who practice that
very dangerous sport of leaving all their senses
behind and climbing big rocks.
 
Sam brought his climbing buddy and wife
Liz Lightner to enjoy the progam.  You guessed
it, Sam and Liz met on a climbing date.
Linda Hudson takes the mic to give the
club the tally on the Rotary Salvation Army Bell
ringing project.  Well done Linda!
John Boyle is caught ringing the
Salvation Army bells in front of
Safeway on a frosty day.
Ernie Over's brother Jim joined us for
our luncheon meeting.  Welcome Jim.
Santa Sheriff and Marvin Brown harmonize
over a Christmas Carol.
Bill and Nancy Sniffin seem to be
enjoying the program.  Always good
to see you Nancy!

guest at the meeting.  Lance showed

Looking good Andy!
The presenter, our own Steve Erixon,
held the club's attention during his
presentation on the state of the Fremont
County hospitals.
Helen Higby holds the International

"Service above self"
 
Lander Rotary provides another public service to the community!
 
On Saturday September 12, the Annual Lander Fly-In and Car Show was held at Hunt Field
 
 
Lander Rotarian Travis Gallo was the organizer of the event this year and he invited
Lander Rotary to do this as a public service and fund raiser.
 
For the first time ever, visitors and participants were able to enjoy lunch at Hunt Field.
 
Thanks to Lander Rotarian, Helen Higby the fund raiser was a success, both
in service to the community and financially for Lander Rotary.
 
Helen had lots of help from her fellow Rotarians and their family:
    
 
And of course some of the Rotarians had to mug for the camera.
 
     
 
Thanks Helen for heading up this community service project.
 
 
 
Thanks to Lander Rotary, this participant flew home with a full stomach.

A bunch of eager young Lander Interact Club members were on hand at the MAW grounds to show the Lander Rotarians how to get real work done. The young adults offered classes in grass pulling, digging and bagging to the more sedate Rotarians.

      

The only one not working was a very smart dog that found some shade and relaxed while the toil was progressing around her.

   

To show their appreciation to the Interact workers, the Lander Rotary Club treated them to lunch and a Game and Fish presentation on fishing in the Wind River Range.

President-Elect Mark brought back information on our club's standing with our
contributions to the Rotary International Fund so far this fiscal year.
this information came from Mark's attendance at the PETS conference earlier this month.
 
This report indicates that we have raised $3311 so far 
so...we still have a ways to go to reach our goal of $5500 this year.
 
Remember we need to raise $50 per member to qualify for grants from District or National.
With our current count of 86 active members we need to raise $4300.  We are getting close to that goal
but we are not there yet.
 
Remember:
 
EVERY MEMBER EVERY YEAR

The Cat in the Hat will visit Gannett Peak Elementary School on March 6.

Wonder of wonders, the cat has finally decided that it will arrive at
Gannett Peak Elementary at 8:15 am.  Expect to see it near the West entrance.

The Cat will arrive by fire truck, so if you would like to ride along, meet at the Fire Station probably about 8:00 am

The Cat really likes support when it visits with kids.  It also helps to get the Rotary Name out into the community.
Besides, it is a real hoot watching the Cat in action.
Plan on attending!

Here comes the "Cat In The Hat" Ken Richardson 2015-02-28 00:00:00Z 0

In case you new Lander Rotary Members wonder
"who was that person that gave the prayer at our last meeting"?
That was Don Reynolds, a Lander Rotarian that has taken a year out from Lander Rotary
to complete some construction work out of town.
 
 
Don was Lander Rotary President in 1991
(if you can believe it... that was a year before Bill Sniffin was president)
Don is currently on a leave of absence but we expect and hope that he will re-join us in the near future!

It would be of great help to the webmaster if members of the club would email Ken at kar@wyoming.com any links to news stories about Lander Rotarians. Lacking a link, just a brief description of who, what and where would help.

If you have new a position, award or other personal or business updates that you would like to share with the club, please let Ken know. Hopefully Lander Rotarians In The News can be an on-going club program.

The Cat came back!
Only this time it was welcomed by a bunch of eager kindergartners and first graders at Gannett Peak Elementary.
The Doctor Seuss characters, The Cat in the Hat and Things One and Two entertained the kids with their antics while
Fremont County Sheriff Skip Hornecker narrated the story of the wayward cat and his friends.
Judging by the grins on the kids they had almost as much fun as the performers!
A tip of the Cat's Hat goes out to organizer Helen Higby, Skip Hornecker, the Wyoming Catholic College student "Things" and of course to the Cat who shall remain un-named at this time.
