- Mystery Bus Trip – The first Mystery Bus Trip was over twenty years ago organized by Lloyd De Bock. It was truly a Mystery for all, including Lloyd. For the “Wool Growers Restaurant” in Los Banos did not accept credit cards, so there was a scramble from all to find enough cash to cover the bill. Great way to start off the Mystery Bus Trip.The concept is to fill a bus with 42 adventurous people and only the bus driver and the organizers know where they are going. The trip is normally planned for October to enjoy the beautiful autumn weather. Along the way there are refreshments, Wine and snacks to enjoy with the adventure. The trip to the destination is planned to confuse and to enjoy the autumn scenery. Along the expedition there are numerous guess by participants to the final destination and there may be some fake out stops. In the past the destinations have been the Foothills, the Delta, East Bay, North to Sacramento, and South to Los Banos. Sometimes there is Wine Tasting, a tour of a Castle or activities such as Bocce Ball, or a Street Fair to enjoy. So, sign up and don’t miss The Rotary Mystery Bus Trip it fill up fast!!!

Speaker: Suzy Daveluy – City of Stockton Recreation and Libraries
Introduced by: Dianne Stauffer
Ms. Daveluy appreciated all the Rotarians have done for her organizations over the years, and now as Community Services Director she recognized her mentor (Colleen Foster) and the entire community for supporting Measure M.
The 8-Libraries , 4-pools, parks, and community centers allow her department to serve the various need of the Stockton community. Having these facilities and staff and volunteers step up during the pandemic.
The NE Library & Community Center is expected to be open by the Fall of 2022. Under Q&A the 1926 constructed Civic Center has an opportunity to celebrate Stockton with its 100-year anniversary. Suzy reported that she has been considering this and will be doing something appropriate.
At various times in his life Tim has been known as Mister Vacation, The Fixologist and Just Plain Tim. He’s been an ardent entrepreneur since 1973 and likes the challenge of starting new businesses and exploring new possibilities.
He and his wife Susan, herself a Past President and Area 9 Assistant Governor from the Rotary Club of Oakhurst Sierra, live in Ahwahnee with their two dogs, two cats and lots of wild critters. They have four grown children and three amazing grand kids, Parker (9yrs.), Oliver (3yrs.) and Paloma (3yrs.+ 45 minutes)
An engaged Rotarian of the Oakhurst Sierra Sunrise Club for ten years Tim sees his professional attributes serving him well on the journey as District 5220 Governor for 2021/2022. Tim knows that we are entering one of the most exciting and challenging times for Rotary, a time when we must be creative and adaptive, a time when we must be engaging and inclusive and a time to increase the public’s knowledge of who we are and what we do.
His work with Rotarians in Haiti and Central America has shown him first hand the difference that Rotary makes in the world. Tim honors the 100+ year traditions of Rotary and embraces the next generation of Rotarians that are creating new, diverse opportunities to serve their communities.
According to Tim, “The world needs what Rotary offers and I look forward to engaging all Rotarians in our mission of service above self. Give me a call, 559.283.4731. Let’s get busy making a difference!”
