19 May 2014 — Rotarian Thinking, from Space

IMPORTANT DATES

SUNDAY, JUNE 1 — 12:30pm — our next regular “Fourth Sunday” Meeting…pushed one week after the fourth Sunday in May to avoid Memorial Day Weekend — special guest speaker will be fellow Rotarian JULIE JENKINS, Rotary Club of Burbank Sunrise, to update us on the new worldwide Polio crisis (declared by the World Health Organization) and how and why we are still the key to the solution.

SATURDAY, JUNE 21 — 3:30pm and DINNER — CELEBRATION AT TLC!  We culminate our Community Grant project by enjoying the grand opening of the new library, where we have provided the shelves and the books and we will help introduce the latter to the former…after we put our gift bookplates inside each book.  IMMEDIATELY FOLLOWING, we will proceed to Marie Callendar’s in Northridge for a Rotary Year-End dinner celebrating President Sara and our team’s accomplishments.  Details and addresses to follow.

SUNDAY, JUNE 22 — 12:30pm — our FOURTH SUNDAY meeting for June, with a great speaker TBA.  Yes, we really can gather two days in a row, back to back.  We like each other.

PROJECT REPORT

On Sunday, 18 May, we enjoyed our sixth ONE MORE ITEM public food drive, this time at Gelson’s in Valley Village (while the Sherman Oaks location finishes up some external renovations; we’ll be back there in three months). Generous shoppers helped us jam three Valley Food Bank barrels to the brim. We’ll add the weight count to this page when we have it.

THIS WEEK’S PROGRAM

Earthrise

 

 

 

 

Rotarians often see a world without borders–or at least we ignore them and serve people first, without discrimination. We serve people in need.

Astronauts see a planet without borders–or at least without political boundaries. Seeing the planet as one object, one system, informs a new way of thinking that Humans did not have until 1968…and still often have trouble grasping.

This video, without realizing it, offers a very Rotarian way of looking at world peace and understanding. We hope to find in these 18 minutes the inspiration to serve the best we can–and always, always, new ideas for service.
