Rotarians Dennis Frame, Gayle Nachtigal, Dick Stenson and Randy Bateman went on their annual cross country motorcyle trip again this year. It seems as though Randy was unlucky and somehow managed to wind up with his arm in a sling and had to cut his part of the trip short. I am sure that there is a story there that he will share with us upon return. Pictured are Randy in his sling and also a sympathy photo of the rest of the group donning their slings as well.

A past recipient of the Leo dal Santo Award, Eldon Mains has participated in and accepted responsible positions in the club, serving as past President as well as member of both the club Board of Directors as well as the club Foundation Board of Directors.
Eldon spends countless hours, week in and week out, year in and year out, to this very day, helping in matters across many committees. He has grown with this club, as our outreach has grown, our events have grown, our fundraising, our parade, our scholarship program, both of our boards, he has been there. For more than thirty years he has consistently been an instrumental force in our club’s success.
He works tirelessly to keep track of our scholarship students and has been responsible for our most lucrative fundraiser, our annual Rose Sale, our tax returns, and so much more. We have all turned to Eldon for answers, for advice, and for counsel about Rotary matters and Rotary history.
Past presidents describe Eldon as 1) accountable, 2) dependable 3) knows just about everything or will find out 4) and fills in as president at club meetings if necessary. He is our “go to” person for keeping our website up to date as well as our Facebook page. He continues to be active in a variety of functions such as fundraising activities such as our annual rose sale, community projects, club committees, fellowship events as well as district meetings.

GARY C.K. HUANG
In Rotary, we mark August as Membership and Extension Month. There is a good reason why we remind ourselves of the importance of membership early in every Rotary year: because the job of growing our membership is one that we can never begin too soon. It is also a job that we can never stop working on. In order to keep serving, Rotary always needs to be growing!
We have talked for many years about the importance of the family of Rotary. In this Rotary year, I want to make not just the family of Rotary, but our own Rotary families, a priority in our membership. After 37 years of following me in Rotary, my wife, Corinna, finally became a Rotarian last year. We attended the chartering of a new club in Taiwan together, and she said, "It's time for me to become a Rotarian too!" So she joined that club. And soon, so did a lot of other people. Now that club has 102 members, and it's the second-largest club in Taiwan.
