President's Message

Ken Meyer

President 2020-2021
Greetings fellow Rotarians and guests!
Welcome to the Rotary E-Club of One World!

 

Dear members, visitors, and future members of Rotary E-Club of One World,
 
This Rotary year’s theme is “Rotary Opens Opportunities.”  As we dive into continued Rotary service and fun, we will each open many opportunities that but for our Rotary membership would not have come our way.
 
Rotary opportunity—meeting other Rotarians.  
We welcome back to the club this month returning member Mac Whyte from San Juan Cosala, Jalisco, Mexico.  We also welcome three new members to our club:
               PP Christy Swatzell from Bakersfield, California, USA;
               PDG Balu Balachandran from Pondicherry, Pondicherry, India; and
               Dr. Ina von Ber from La Jolla, California, USA
 
Remember to join us for our Club Fellowship Assembly which is held via Zoom every first Saturday of the month.  The Zoom link is always published in Workplace.  Our monthly fellowship and fun often includes meeting Rotarians from other clubs.  In our last fellowship assembly we had visitors from the Rotary E-Club of Croatia.
 
Rotary opportunity—Club Community Service Projects in your “own backyard.”
Another Rotary opportunity the club invites you to jump on this year is doing a service project in your own community with the help of club funds.  Our board decided that we should have a community service projects budget to better engage you as a club member and to give you more local opportunities for hands-on Service Above Self.  There are always needs in our own backyards that deserve our attention as Rotarians.  
 
Our Community Service Director (and President-Elect), Pat Fisher, will soon publish to the club some simple guidelines and a deadline for submitting your community service project ideas. We want to complete at least four community service projects this year.  This will be in addition to our continued support of youth services and international services projects.  Please feel comfortable to start immediately the conversations that will lead to your project proposals and the board decisions on which projects will be supported by the club.
 
Rotary opportunity—Vocational Service.
Many in the club make Rotary and the world a better place with skills learned in their chosen vocations.  Thanks to our club member Dr. Bob Skankey for his example of Service Above Self in using his medical training to give service to the Fistula Hospital in Ethiopia.
 
When as club members we let each other know what we do in our vocations, we know each other better and can also plan club projects that use those skills. To encourage us, here is your assignment:  Post to Workplace this week a picture related to the vocational work that you do.  It will be great if you are in the picture! And if you are retired, we would still like a picture from you sharing your “past” vocational skills or a new hobby or passion acquired after your retirement.
 
Sincerely,
Ken Meyer, Club President 2020-2021
RotaryE-Club of One World
 
P.S.    Here are my vocational service picture offerings from a beekeeper, beeswax renderer, and now your club president.

Program
 
Tim Kenyon and his wife had the adventure of a lifetime:
The Great Loop - per boot in one year!
 
 

 

To all members of our eclub and other Rotarians around the world,
 
Tim Kenyon is a retired geologist with a love of all kinds of boating. 
With Mary, his wife of 40+ years, he embarked on the Great Loop in 
September 2017 from Ottawa, Illinois. They have owned boats since the 
early days, starting with a canoe and moving up thru kayaks, a small 
cruising sailboat, a Ranger 21 Classic to their current Ranger 25sc.  
They live on Lake Madison in South Dakota and have three grown children.

When they purchased the Ranger 21 Classic in 2010, it opened a wide 
range of cruising possibilities, but like all boaters, they got 
“bigger-boat-itis” and went to the Seattle Boat show in January 2015. 
There are World-Class salespersons at boat shows and they ended up with 
the boat-show boat, the Ranger 25sc. They named it Nellie May after 
Tim’s maternal Grandmother, a very special person in his life.

Upon getting the Ranger 25sc, Tim heard about the Great Loop. After 
attending an AGLCA Looper Rendezvous in Norfolk, VA in May 2016, they 
were hooked. They departed on September 11, 2017 and spend the next 11 
months looping.

This was a most amazing, passionate interview and I almost want to step on a boat and do the same. Join Tim while he presents how beautiful the US is, seen from the water.

Thank you,

Gabriella
