“The Rotary Club of Stockton Begins the 2nd Century of Service to the Stockton Community”
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

- 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 collecting boxed mashed potatoes for the holiday season. To learn what they need this month, please see there webpage at Calendar (stocktonfoodbank.org). 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.
