ImageBobby Field and Co-Conspirator Natalie (I didn’t get her last name) discussed their film making projects.

Natalie is working on a documentary film about the hikers who were captured on the wrong side of the border in Iran – and were held as prisoners for 2 years. Many remember the story, but Natalie was obsessed by, and decided to make a movie about the story.

Bobby is working on a feature film that is rock and roll based – with some of it to be filmed in the Lake Arrowhead area!

They both talked about the steps leading up to producing and distributing a film including the writing, producing and one of the most important parts which is raising the funds to make it all happen. One new and very powerful source of fundraising is “crowdfunding” which Bobby described as it relates to his project. His goal is to raise $300,000 to put his film, which has been on the drawing board for almost 9 years, into production.

They also discussed the differences between the documentary style and the feature style. Both seem to have a very high level of enthusiasm for their projects!

Good luck to you both.

ImageNyron McLean, a member of the Riverside Sunrise Rotary was today’s guest speaker.

Nyron is heavily involved – and very passionate about the problems of the people of Haiti. Everyone remembers the earthquake disaster in early 2010, which all but levelled the highly populated island nation. Between 250,000 and 300,000 people died in the disaster.

Nyron has taken the cause of Haiti to heart and is doing everything he can to help provide basic services for Haiti through his “H-3 Mission” agency. He has visited Haiti many times, and is scheduled to visit again in late February. He has organized a large effort to help, and has helped found a number of orphanages to care for the large p[population of homeless children.

Nyron showed the group a very graphic video of Haiti – and credited the Armed Forces of the United States as being incredibly helpful!

Rudy Westervelt and Nyron will be working together to find ways that we may be able to help.

Thanks, Nyron, for putting us in the loop!

ImageCaptain Rick Ells presented today’s program – starting by introducing Bob Mclaughlin from Citizens on Patrol.

Bob made a brief presentation on the Citizens on Patrol program – which is very active in our area. There is a patrol most every weekday, and it turns out they do a lot to help extend the service of the Deputies.

Captain Ells made a presentation about the history and recent activities of the Sheriff’s Department. Founded in 1853, the San Bernardino department provides law enforcement services for about 1,000,000 residents, and operates a 7,000 bed prison system. They provide law enforcement on a contract basis for 14 cities in the county.

Rick is happy to report that the general trend on crime in the county has been down – for the last several years, there have been 2700 reports of crime in the mountains over the past (almost) year, down from 5000 in the past – a great trend. The crime problem that is the most active is burglary, due to the large number of unoccupied homes here.

Rick spent a few minutes on recent changes in enforcement, including a description of Proposition 47 – which has changed the nature of a large number of felonies to misdemeanors.  Not sure how that will turn out!!

Thanks for the presentation, Rick!

ImagePresident John introduced Steve Tilden – the director of the Boys and Girls Club.

Steve has been involved for 5 years – and expressed excitement for the receipt of or check for support6 at the auction!The program has been around for 20 years, and regularly serves 300 participants at their 3 locations. With funding cuts, they have done very well with their thrift shop in Cedar Glen! Funding from grants has been cut by about 70%, and fortunately, they have been able to maintain services through the success of the store and private donations.

Thanks for all that you do, Steve!

Geoff managed to ferret out a few details about Scott Craft and Steve Hollstein:




Steve: A banker with 2 daughters – has been in the mountains forever. Famous for telling a Queen Tour Group that the Tower is actually an elevator to an underwater restaurant. Comment from Steve: “Honored to be a part of the group.” He may think better of that in the future










Scott: A teacher, coach and contractor, resident since 1976. Famous for single-handedly straightening out Morgan Hopper. “Happy to be indicted – I mean inducted”





With the usual fanfare and dim lights, both Steve and Scott accepted their respective oath to a round of applause!

Rudy reported on another amazing RYLA event – with a video of some of the happenings – along with testimony from the RYLArians:

 “Life Changing”, “Speakers were awesome”, “I suddenly realized that I am not alone in the world.”

A few more:” Loved making 10,000 meals in an hour!” “We actually dealt with mistakes” – AMAZING comments.

ImageThe Rim High Literature Club presented today – and what an impressive group of young people they are!

This semester, they are in the process of creating a mural depicting great authors and stories, with a hope of promoting a higher level of interest in reading.

Next semester, they will be setting up an elementary school reading and tutoring club! The idea is to promote a MUCH higher level of independent reading. They are seeking to inspire children to read more – to find ways to help kids want to read more outside of school hours and help them build the skills and knowledge for higher education.

They want to teach kids to get into books! To listen to their presentation, BELIEVE IT!!

They asked for a donation of $400 to help – UNANIMOUS AYE!!

John called Mike Mueller and wife Margaret up, along with incoming foundation chair Denise Amante to present Mike with his Paul Harris Fellow pin! There was along, loud round of applause.

ImageToday’s program was presented by the Honorary Mayor of Crest Park, Penny Shubnell.

Penny works extensively with our large senior citizen population. Penny works with the Dial a Ride program, provides meals for seniors, and operates the Thrift Store in Top Town.

Penny reports that the program was most active during the economic turn-down, and has recently slowed up a bit. The Rebuilding Together group provides  a very important program for the people that Penny helps, and she offered us thanks for our support it.

Evidently, government funding for Penny’s nutrition program stopped in 2011 – and the mountain Rotary clubs were supportive enough to allow her to maintain the program which was very helpful for a large number of people.

Penny offers her thanks to our group!

ImageBrandi introduced us to Dr. Giovanie Annous, the new Principal at Rim High.

Dr. Annous seems to mark a major change in management style at Rim. A long time educator, Dr. Annous has recently worked very successfully in the Fontana School District – turning a very troubled school into a successful one.

His goal is to reinvigorate Rim by introduced something he sees missing – PRIDE. He sees pride in the necessary ingredient to helping the school become a success. To accomplish this, Dr. Annous has started a number of new programs including a total clean-up of the campus, installing tables for students to congregate at, new awards ceremonies and a visiting area for students – “Area 5200.”

He asked if our group might consider making a donation to help purchase an additional table for the students to sit at.

Dr. Annous took questions from the group about their bullying program, Cleanliness of the campus and the awards program – known as the “Scotts Legion.”


Dr. Annous seems full of energy and up to the task of making Rim a showplace!

ImageBrandi Elliott introduced Julie Perkins, Tennis Coach at Rim High School.

Julie introduced the tennis program at Rim – the program has been doing very well, with 27 boys and 35 girls on the team! The boys advanced to CIF last year, and the girls team is ranked number 2 in the CIF, and is advancing to the finals.

Julie introduced 2 of her stars, Lauren Walker and Kaylie Stehmeier – both members of the CIF team.
