Rotary News

The 2022/2023 year has started off strong and we have already held our first Board meeting on Monday. We have some news to share. We had a vacancy of Sergeant at Arms. Ken Steele stepped up and offered to be head of a team of Sergeants and in doing so is relinquishing his role as Director of International/Grants. In his place Sally Motta was voted in as the new Director of International/Grants. Thanks to Ken
and Sally for their new roles and for volunteering for our club.

Sad news to report. Pacific Stockton Rotary is closing down as a club effective by the end of this year 2022 after opening in 1974 and we hope to attract any of their members that are looking to relocate to a new club. They will be visiting all the other 4 Stockton clubs and each will picking they club they feel fits.

Rotary Direct: We have 26 participants including myself that have our donations electronically our donation taken out automatically and it is easy and adds up fast. Please consider donating this way. See Leonard Hansen, Secretary Matt or myself for more details.

Leonard Hansen, our Foundation Chair will be asking for money for Rotary International. We have a goal this year to donate $30k. We need help to make this goal. Leonard said we raised $645 toward RI in last weeks meeting on our goal to $30k. thanks to all

Help Needed

  • Volunteers needed for my Oyate Gathering. We are needing Silent Auction items, Live Auction items and ticket sells.
  • President Colleen wants to do another wine pull so we need wine bottles donated for this really fun fundraiser and a chance to win a very expensive and great bottle of wine.
  • Speaking of donations that we want to collect, we are assisting The Emergency Food Bank with needed donations each month and this month they are in need of boxes of cereal. To learn what they need this month, please see there webpage at Calendar (stocktonfoodbank.org).  Can we get everyone to bring a box to our meetings in July? We truly thank you kindhearted and generous Rotarians. 
  • We ask of us all to give from our time, talent, and treasures. If you are unable to give treasure, then time or talent is needed. We need help with set up each week, greeters, notetakers, and shut down. We need someone to lead COG. Does anyone have a desire and ability to give back by organizing and teaching our COG? Can we get a commitment for a month to sign up for these duties that are our basic club functions and lunches? Please see me, Matt to sign up.

“Oyate Gathering, Native Americans” by Colleen Stewart

Spoke on the Oyate Gathering and that the bison being served is from Pine Ridge South Dakota from Colleen Stewart’s cousin, Bamm Brewer. He is the owner of Charging Buffalo Meat Processor and the Organizer of the “Crazy Horse Annual Ride”. Crazy Horse is a famous Oglala Lakota who was a warrior and leader and defeated the US Army on June 26, 1876 on a famous battle called “Little Big Horn”,
“Custer’s Last Stand” or as native refer to it, “Battle of Greasy Grass”.
The grand prize for the Oyate event is a week in South Dakota between Rapid City and Deadwood. Mount Rushmore is in Rapid and is a Granite sculptor from 1920- 1940 and in the process 16 miles away is the Crazy Horse Memorial. All four heads of Mt Rushmore will fit under the arm of Crazy Horse as he sits on a horse pointing his arm to “Paha Sapa” or the Black Hills.
