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.

ImageHarvey and Ginny Durand presented facts about coffee and tea for today’s program!

Harvey started with tea – the number 2 drink in the world (Water is number 1). Harvey noted that all tea, regardless of blend comes from the same bush, and was discovered in about 2700 BC.

A few facts:

  • A tea bush can grow up to 100 feet tall (Monks used monkeys to pick tea leaves!)
  • Women are the preferred pickers, as they have a more delicate touch.
  • One picker can pick 50,000 leaves a day.
  • As soon as a tea leaf is picked, it will begin to turn black from the activation of an enzyme. To make green tea, the fresh picked tea leaves are roasted to disable the enzyme.
  • The best tea is made in water at about the 170 degree level to avoid burning the leaves.
  • Iced Tea was invented by a tea vender on a hot day at the 1904 World’s Fair!
  • 80% of all tea consumed in the US is iced.

A Few coffee facts:

  • 2.25 billion cups are consumed daily
  • Coffee mostly comes from South America, although some come from Africa.
  • Arabica=GOOD,  Robusto=Not So Good
  • 100 pounds of coffee berries will yield 20 pounds of coffee beans.
  • Coffee contains a dangerous substance – that potentially causes cancer – and the Durand’s – they say by accident – discovered a process to remove the substance and retain the flavor of the coffee!

Thanks for all of the interesting info!!

ImageKaren Baldwin and a few Girl Scouts from her group presented their plans for their “Silver Award Project.”

The girls have organized a “Community Preparedness” event to be held in Blue Jay in the parking lot of the Lake Arrowhead Patrol Security office – this coming Saturday the 25th. It will be held from 10am to 3pm. The goal is to help the community prepare for a natural disaster, and to understand what resources are available.

Come out, get informed and show your support for the project!

President John asked tuxedoed MC Geoff Hopper to preside over the opening of the Special Presentation Envelope – delivered on a silver platter.

With the lights dimmed, Geoff described the honor to be bestowed upon our own Barry and Cheryl Robinson: The Rotary International Foundation’s “Major Donor Award.”

This is a very special award commemorating only the very dedicated among Rotarians – the Robinson’s being the newest! Their gifts and service to the Rotary Foundation have been extraordinarily generous, and everyone was excited to offer a standing ovation!

To commemorate their achievement, the Robinson’s received diamond pins, and a lovely crystal commemorative piece engraved with their names and achievement. President John noted the engraving spelled “Cheryl” as “Shirley” which will, of course, be updated.

Barry and Cheryl thanked the group for the honor, and cited the principals of Rotary as the force behind their generosity.

Congratulations to Barry and Cheryl, and thanks from the whole group for your extreme dedication to all causes Rotary!!!

ImageEagle Scout candidate Evan Kraskin and dad Chris presented Evan’s project. He plans to remodel the Senior Quad at Rim High School, with a plan for plantings, a new octagonal bench, inspirational posters and a series of public announcements – Evan is asking for help financing the project – he need’s $350 to pull it off.

Geoff Hopper said he and his moron brother (his words) offered to fund the whole project!

Alena Calderon from the noon club introduced today’s speaker – Carol McBrady.

Carol created and operates “Image”, a program based in Zambia dedicated to caring for and educating homeless children living on the streets of Zambia.

Carol founded the group after visiting Zambia and seeing so many desperately poor and homeless children there. Carol appears to be anything but a shrinking violet – she decided that she was going to do something about the problem, so she just dug in on the principal that she would simply take it upon herself to help as many as she could. Helping at the street level, she started with one, and has worked up to currently having about 75 kids in her program.

Her goal is to care for them, provide the tools for them to be able to function in their society and to give them the ability to take care of themselves.

It seems that almost every dollar that goes into the program goes to work to provide the care that Carol set out to do – as she does it almost singlehandedly, often getting help from family, friends and former homeless kids.

 Carol applied to our group for help with funds for medical supplies – a check for which was presented at our meeting.

What an amazing story!
