Rochester Rotary Club RotoScoop
August 27th, 2019
President Wayne Hodges opened the meeting with the Pledge of Allegiance, then we sang God Bless America, and recited the modified Four Way Test.  The invocation was given by Tom DelPup, speaking about Yogi Berra (It Ain't Over Til It's Over), and forgiveness.  President Wayne then spoke about D-Day, and the ramifications of that operation, ending with a passionate "Freedom Isn't Free".  Lunch was served.
We had 46 members present, and seven guests:  Kristi Trevarrow and her husband Tom, guests of John Modetz; Jade McLellan, Sharon Reinke, and Vito Pionito, guests of Alan McLellan; and Veronica and her daughters, guests of Marty McClure.

Tom Neveau then gave away the Rotarian of the Week to Rhonda Panczyk, thanks for a great golf outing Rhonda.  Congrats Rhonda!
Rhonda Panczyk then gave a quick rundown of how the golf outing went, and thanked everyone on the committee (Shirley Gofrank, Janet Drobnich, Rachel Aviles, and even Phil Lowman, even though he didn't do anything).  She also thanked Cyndee Andrews, Brenda Brosnan, Tom Neveau, and John Somerville, and all of the sponsors.  This outing raised over $15,000 for our charity work.
John Modetz then came up and gave a Paul Harris award to Kristi Trevarrow.  Kristi serves as the executive director of the Downtown Development Authority for Rochester, MI.  One of Kristi's most notable achievements is the Big Bright Light Show.  Thanks so much for your service to our community!
On behalf  of Tim Duncan, President Wayne announced that we have a baseball game, the USPBL championship game on Sunday, September 8th at 1:05pm at Jimmy John's Field in Utica, MI.  Cost for tickets is $32 per seat, including a meal and (2) drink tickets.  We have a matching sponsor for this event, in that however many tickets are sold, a monetary match (dollar for dollar) will be made to our Charities for discretionary use.  Yes, you are still paying for your seat, but the amount you are paying will be matched and donated.  Keep in mind that this coming Tuesday, September 3rd will be the last day to sign up for the baseball game.  Tickets will be available for pickup at will call prior to the game.
President Wayne spoke briefly about District 6380's One Rotary Summit coming up on September 14th, 2019 at Concordia University in Ann Arbor.  The primary topic will be communication skills training, through the use of story-telling.

The velvety pipes of Eric Whipple then led us in two songs in celebration of Labor Day, Heigh Ho and If I Had A Hammer.  Thanks Eric!
President Wayne then introduced the sherriff, Steve Schettenhelm.  Raising $172 for our charity work, Steve fined us for excessive public speaking, personal hygiene, golf, knickers, the Dream Cruise (time to go home folks), romance awareness month, Guinness Book of World Record holders, and just because.  Great job Steve!
President Wayne then introduced our speaker of the day, Anne Brasie, the executive director of the Clinton River Watershed Council.  As Executive Director, Anne is responsible for the overseeing day-to-day operations, supporting staff in their work, managing external relationships with partner agencies, community organizations, local and regional governments, financial management and long-term planning for CRWC.  She spoke at length about what the CRWC is, and how it operates.  Great talk, thanks Anne!
