In addition to providing us with some interesting information, he showed us that he can still lay down some fine sounds. Not only that, Welks put together a Rotary kazoo chorus line and music'ed us all up a bit.

Thanks Welks for a great program and the musical refresher!

Russ Skubal from the Kingman Little League recently approached the Kingman Rotary Club hoping to raise funds for new upgrades to the South fields including new bullpens and backstops. The Kingman Rotary Club has an ongoing commitment to serve both the global and local communities and was happy to join other local organizations in sponsorship of the Little League.

Russ told the club that the Route 66 Rotary Club had agreed to a $2,000 sponsorship of the Little League, so with some friendly jeering, the Kingman Rotary Club agreed to match the $2,000 from the 66 club - but that wasn't quite enough. Long time Kingman Rotary Club member and past District Governor William Porter decided to kick in an extra $1,000 personally on behalf of the club to bring the grand total to $3,000. The new upgrades to the South fields look great thanks to Russ' fundraising efforts and the generosity of organizations such as the Kingman Rotary Club.

He recalled what a great experience it was to be a teacher in his early Kingman days and named some of the great students that he met that are now community leaders and fellow Rotarians such as William. He also underscored the importance of this period in his life since it was also when he met his wonderful wife.

Lester continued relaying some of his experiences in coaching basketball during that time, later serving as principal for over 20 years, spending time on the Council as a councilman and later as mayor for 10 years, as well as various other local and regional leadership roles that he served on.

Thank you Lester for your entertaining program and for your years of service to Kingman in so many capacities!

Dad, Alec and Mom

Alec will be attending the University of Arizona (go WildCats!) where he will study medicine and embark on the long journey to become a doctor. He had an opportunity recently to visit a hospital in the Philippines and noted the clear need for additional physicians there as well as everywhere else such as the Arizona metro areas. And after all, he said, Dr. Duranceau has kind of a nice ring to it.

Thank you for telling us a little bit about your goals Alec. We look forward to a bright future for you and hope to see you again!

Before the children took off for Spring break, the Kingman Rotary club wanted to send a group of children home with an extra Easter surprise - Easter baskets filled with goodies, coloring books, crayons, and early readers. Check out the Photo Journal of the event.

Billy put this idea on the table at the last minute and the club joined right in and donated over $600 to make this project possible. Additionally WalMart kicked in another $100 plus discounts. Thanks to everyone who made this possible this year - it went great and we hope to make it an annually recurring project!

Honorary Membership has been a topic of much attention lately in our club both in the governing board and in the general membership. Over the last couple of months there has been an increased interest in applications for honorary membership and the governing board has had to make some tough decisions with no established definition of "Honorary" or guidelines. In an attempt to remove the arbitrary nature of our past approval process we are in the process of developing a definition of what Honorary means to this club and a set a guidelines to help establish fair and consistent measures in granting honorary status.

Rod recently attended the RYLA (Rotary Youth Leadership Awards) gathering as a volunteer and had a short and refreshing report on his experience.

act. The aims of RYLA are to demonstrate Rotary's respect and concern for youth, provide an effective training experience for selected youth and potential leaders, encourage leadership of youth by youth, and recognize publicly young people who are rendering service to their communities. RYLA, hosted in Prescott, Arizona this year, was attended by over 200 exemplary young men and women.

We have had many reports over the years of the experiences of student attendees and Rod was happy to report that all of the reports were true and accurate. He said that the quality of the programs was exceptional and that the visible growth in the youth participants was awesome. He was amazed to see how the activities helped the participants learn, take on challenges, and build team dynamics.

Rod also pointed out that the experience as a volunteer was extremely rewarding and challenged more Kingman Rotarians to participate in a volunteer capacity next year. Thank you so much for lending a hand to the RYLA event this year and thank you for your report back. Next year we will send along more accompaniment!

Announcement

  • Heppy Birthday Moon!

Program

Tiger, Danny, Judy Tiger invited Danny Marcus from the USDA (United States Department of Agriculture) to speak for the majority of the presentation. Danny introduced a non-profit that Tiger has recently been appointed the President of. The board for the Lower Colorado River Resource Conservation and Development aims to help ensure sustainability in the lower Colorado River region.

Tiger spoke for a moment as well about sustainability and introduced some energy concerns that his groups hopes to help address. For instance, he pointed out how alternative energies in Arizona, such as wind and solar, are under utilized. He also spoke briefly and fielded some questions regarding energy production by coal and nuclear fission.

Thank you Tiger!

Student Rotarian

Jill, Bob and Kelsey Our outgoing Student Rotarian, Kelsey Moon, gave a short, charismatic talk about why she is pursuing a career in elementary education. Kelsey explained that she loves children and she loves watching them learn. She has found inspiration in helping to teach her little sister throughout the years.

Kelsey hopes to teach in the 4th or 5th grades to help arm them with the skills and hope that they will need to make it to and through middle school. She wants to teach them to believe in themselves.

It is obvious that Kelsey is a wonderful individual with a lot to offer our future generations. Thank you and best of luck Kels&

I read an interesting article today on the Rotary International website concerning the Four Way Test ("A new look at global ethics and The Four-Way Test"). The Four Way Test should be a key component to every Rotarian's public and private life, but like some of the commentators on the article I believe that how it is applied is open for interpretation.

Please visit the District and RI websites for additional insight regarding the 24 simple words I'm about to discuss.
