About 25 members, prospective members, and Club Leaders packed the office of Lynn Luckow for the Quarterly meet-and-greet on August 15, 2018. There was an abundance of food and drink, and most important, goodwill and camaraderie to start the evening.
On Saturday, August 11, Phyllis Nusz, Frank Yoke, and I joined about 50 other Rotarians at a District 5150 Learning and Development Opportunity about The Rotary Foundation of Rotary International (TRF). The presentation focused on the wonderful work our foundation does around the world, including tools to educate and inspire us all.
The five Redding Rotary Clubs have joined together to promote the Shasta Regional Community Foundation’s (SRCF) Community Disaster Relief Fund.

On August 2, 2018, members and their family along with prospective members gathered at the Patriot House gastropub for happy hour. A great time was had by all sharing pitchers of beer and tasty appetizers.

Dr. Carla Walter joined the Rotary Club of San Francisco in January 2017 and immediately got involved, ”because that’s how you get to know people.” She really enjoys the social events and has helped with scholarship evaluations for RYLA, as well as raising money for the Club. She’s just started a two-year term on the board of the Rotary Club of San Francisco as Vice President for Development.
 
“Rotary is an organization that you don’t feel embarrassed to ask for money, that you can really get behind,” she says. “It’s a good cause, important. And I like making friends, hearing success stories.”
Happy New Year and Happy 110th Anniversary Year!!
 
It is an honor to serve as your president for the 2018-2019 Rotary year. Your welcoming enthusiasm, from last week's energetic meeting to the many emails and texts you have sent my way, is a sign of the great team we are! I am thankful.
 
The Rotary International theme for 2018-2019 is Be The Inspiration. I relayed in our first meeting and wish to reiterate that our Club's plan to inspire boils down to several components. One is our formal plan on paper evidenced by our goals and our common desire to see our Club and surrounding communities thrive.
About 50 members and guests attended today's Rotary Luncheon. We were joined by visiting Rotarians from several Clubs around the Bay Area, including District Governor Jayne Hulbert and her husband Gene Duffy, Past Rotary International Director Brad Howard, and several representatives of the La Plata Rotary Water Project.
 
President Rhonda opened the meeting with a recitation of the Four-Way Test.
About 50 club members and guests attended today's lively luncheon meeting. We were joined by visiting Rotarians from several Clubs across California, and by an unusually large number of guests.
 
After the basic preliminaries, President Rhonda announced that a get-well card was circulating so that everyone could offer personal wishes to Immediate Past President John Mathers (Management Consulting; eVo Associates), who is having knee replacement surgery today.
Frank Yoke and Tim Hornbecker are tied for first so far, with John Hoch second, but if Tyler Sterk, our guest and potential new Rotary member actually joins the Club, he could take over the lead in no time. Our tourney with trophies is open to all Rotarians in the Bay Area. All level of golfers invited. Special rules this year include no more than double par. So for a par 3 hole and you’re stuck in the bunker, you can’t get more than a 6! That speeds up the round and adds to the fun! We’re looking for more golfers to join us for 9 holes and libations every 2nd and 4th Thursday of the month through September 13! Fun fellowship! 
About 70 people attended President Rhonda's inaugural meeting today. After preliminaries that included a champagne toast to the 110th anniversary of the Rotary Club of San Francisco (thank you to the Sir Francis Drake for the bubbly!), President Rhonda gave an inspiring talk about her vision for the Rotary year ahead.
A group of roughly 20 members of the Rotary Club of San Francisco attended the Rotary International Convention in Toronto, Ontario from June 23-27, 2018.
 
The Convention allowed 24,000 Rotarians worldwide to come together in celebration of the past year’s successes and to look forward to the next year’s theme, Be the Inspiration
The Rotary Club of San Francisco, the second oldest Rotary Club in the world, was founded on November 12, 1908. Theodore Roosevelt was President, Ford Motor Company was manufacturing the Model T, and San Francisco was in the final stages of recovery from the Great Earthquake and Fire of 1906.
 
Since then, our Club has played a key role in the growth of San Francisco into a major city, and expansion of Rotary to 1.2 million members in more than 35,000 Clubs throughout the world.
 
We are celebrating the 110th anniversary of our founding at our Holiday Luncheon and Annual Meeting on December 18, and with "time capsule" moments at our luncheon meetings throughout the 2018-2019 Rotary year.
