8/2/2017         Tales of an Australian in Indonesia         Daryl Mills        

Tom introduced Daryl Mills.  Daryl is from Melbourne, Australia but for 13 years, he was the full-time Rotary Liaison Officer in Timor Leste.  Daryl shared with the club the realities of war torn Timor and his role in East Timor serving the people in need. Connections to the government and the local Catholic church have allowed humanitarian aid and goods to reach the people most in need. Rotary (especially clubs in Australia and New Zealand) has been involved in helping to provide life changing surgeries and healthcare as well as projects to get supplies (like blankets) to families in the inland parts of the country.

Timor has the highest birthrate at 7.89 children per woman as well as the highest rate of death in children under five and death of women in childbirth.

MEETING NOTES FOR July 26, 2017

Meeting was called to order by President Denise at 7 am and she introduced Jill Poyer as President’s Pal. Jill shared some timely quotes.

GUESTS: We had a record number of guests this week. They were:

Our Yamhill Co. Fair Ambassadors Tatiana DeHart, Abby Berhorst and Elsie Duyn and their sponsor Leslie Lewis; our speaker, Charlene Bassine; Interact teacher advisor, Alison; Interact members Kiley, Katie and Sophie; Noon Rotarians Edwina Castle, Art Bradley, Lou and Linda Gardner; Daryl Mills, visiting Rotarian from Australia currently living in Indonesia and visiting McMinnville; and Ken Moore’s friend Jerry Langwalker.

ANNOUNCEMENTS/Happy Dollars

  • Janet announced our next Club Social on August 30 from 5-7pm. No morning meeting. Location TBA.
  • Georgia has a new job at MV Advancements
  • Jon will be distributing raffle tickets for the Bocce Tournament soon
  • Janet completed the San Francisco Marathon
  • Connie wanted to meet with members involved with the Bocce Team registration and Day of Event responsibilities.
  • Denise encouraged us to get our sponsors this week. All sponsor checks should go to Georgia first for proper recording.
  • Dean K. gave a $1000 sponsorship. Thanks, Dean.

Program: Charlene Bassine, Interact Club Coordinator for Dist. 5100

  • Charlene grew up in McMinnville and now a member of the Central East Portland Club.
  • Interact gives kids an outlet for their “hearts” and teaches skills in leadership, service above self, life skills, good judgement, collaboration with others and job skills. Membership also looks good on resumes.
  • There are 18,000 Interact clubs internationally.
  • There are 26 Interact Clubs in Dist. 5100
  • Rotary Club members give to Interact clubs by being active in coaching, mentoring, and joint community projects.
  • Interact clubs are self-governing and determine their own community and international projects. Their clubs can earn Presidential Citations by completing a list of activities much like our own Rotary club. This Presidential Citation list gives structure to Interact Clubs even if they don’t actually achieve the award.

Yamhill Co. Fair Ambassadors then gave a 10 minute slideshow about the 2017 Fair that runs August 2-5. Each ambassador has been awarded a $1000 scholarship to attend the college of their choice. Last year’s Fair attendance was 40,000. Our Fair is the oldest in Oregon with the first fair in 1854.

HAPPY DOLLARS:

John Martinez turned 50! Brad Lunt participated in a Triathlon in Bend, followed by a trip to the Steens. Jeff Sargent announced that the YCAP Fundraiser (Raise the Barn) was a complete success. Janet Sasaki survived a week in Walla Walla, staying in a dorm. Ken Moore announced plans to visit Greece. Mark Pauletto related that Lanette Noble of Parks & Rec had good words to say about our club. Lou Perez has been working on a project to get feral cats spayed…31 recently. Tom Vail made a first-time visit to Drift Creek Falls. Dotty Holt survived a weeklong excursion on a wagon train along the White River and over portions of the Barlow Road. Jon Johnson had a great road trip to and from Minnesota.

GUEST SPEAKER:

John Martinez gave a vocational talk that focused on his work as a professional Physical Therapist. John was born in California, grew up in Beaverton, and attended Washington State University, earning degrees in Business and Biology. He opened West Hills Physical Therapy in 2002. He gave a Powerpoint presentation on the general anatomy of the back, neck, and spine, and offered tips on how exercise can help to maintain back health. Among the ways of sustaining or improving back health, John delved into the use of traction, pain management, and methods of exercise designed to maintain or correct posture health. One interesting point was the effect of cell phone usage on the spine. As one bends one head downward to view a cell phone, the head becomes increasingly “heavy”, significantly affecting the stress on the back. Throughout the discussion, John was asked many questions by the members.

THOUGHT FOR  THE DAY:   “In the United States, though power corrupts, the expectation of power paralyzes” – John Kenneth Galbraith

GUEST SPEAKER:

Georgia Conrad introduced Susan Barksdale of a non-profit organization called Rethinking Job Search. Susan, a Carlton resident, outlined a program designed to restore confidence to people who have been out of work. The organization has 10 locations in Oregon, and has so far served 623 Oregonians who are trying to become re-employed. Susan presented a brief film documenting the success of one of their applicants. The key to success is to help the candidate regain a high level of confidence, while at the same time helping them expunge feelings of depression, stress, and humiliation. Georgia then continued by explaining the process for evaluation of candidates, and how the program is linked to the Unemployment Insurance Program. Rethinking Job Search recently received a $3 million, 5-year grant from the Dept. of Labor. For more information, go to the following link:

Denise then distributed the Sunrise Areas of Responsibility to the attending members. This sheet lists the various committees, tasks, and events, along with the names of members assigned to each. Denise concluded by asking members to note November 15th on their calendars. On that date, an evening social will be held in lieu of the morning meeting to honor the District President’s visit, and will also include members of the Noon Club. Location is still to be determined.

 

 

HAPPY DOLLARS:

Ken Moore is happy to be home after a long trip around the country. Jill Poyer is heading to Florida to visit her father.

Kellie Menke returned from D.C. with the news that her daughter has been given command of the Marine Supply Depot, the first woman so honored. Walt Haight is going to Norway at the end of July.

 

GUEST SPEAKER:

This day was set aside for President Denise Murphy to conduct a brief tutorial on the new Sunrise Rotary Website which is now fully operational. The new website is remarkably clean and simple to navigate through (this reporter found it extremely easy to use and very helpful as part of compiling these notes). All members are urged to become familiar with it, and to bookmark it on their computers. Just type in “mcminnvillesunriserotary.org” on your search engine prompt (I use the little magnifying glass place near the top right), and presto! You’re there!

 

THOUGHT FOR  THE DAY:   “Along with General Mills and the Mayo Clinic, Minnesota is the home of the Pillsbury Doughboy, who served our country so deliciously in World War 1” – Sen. Al Franken (Mn)

 

IMPORTANT DATES:

September 17 – Bocce Tournament and Wine Raffle Fund Raiser

  • 1990s – State government told counties and local governments not to make their own regulations regarding ownership of firearms.
  • Concealed Weapon Permits (CWP) are general exempt from restrictions
  • Public spaces – a local government can limit loaded firearms in parks and other public areas (CWPs maybe exempt)

  • 1934 National Firearms Act – placed a tax on firearms that doubled the price
