How many times have we been faced with conflict?  In our jobs, relationships, and even our Rotary Club?  Nancy Milton bluntly told us, “Conflict is inevitable.”

Conflict can adversely affect moral and productivity when it gets out of hand.  “Don’t ignore it,” Nancy warns. There are several ways to resolve conflict: litigation, mitigation, and mediation.

We began our Adopt-A-Creek program with a work day on April 26th.  We had a great showing from our club and thanks to Louise Dutton, we ended up with a few extra volunteers who saw our project in the Loomis News!  Thanks to all the hard work of our rotary club, our interact club and our community volunteers.  We are looking forward to continuing our project and getting these creeks cleaned up!  Enjoy the pictures.  If you want to see more pictures of this project, please go to our Facebook page - Loomis Sunset Rotary Club!

Our first thought came from the First Lady, Carrie Sahol. 

"Health is the greatest gift, contentment the greatest wealth, faithfulness the best relationship."  Buddha

Last week's thought came to us from Jeremy Cook. 

"When we seek to discover the best in others, we somehow bring out the best in ourselves."  William Arthur Ward

Carrie Sahol came across a local magazine called Style and Bella Soap Company, Louise Dutton's business, was listed as one of six eco-friendly products.  Congrats Louise.  And Loomis Basin Brewery was listed as one of the most hoppin Breweries in town.  Congrats Kenny Gowan.

Is it the Truth?

Is it Fair to all concerned?

Will it build Goodwill and Better Friendships?

Will it be Beneficial to all concerned?


Congratulations to our Assistant District Governor - Mike Reinero, who correctly recited our 4-way test.  Our own Cristie Akers aced it for a gold coin too!

There is a chance some of you may have missed our tidbit about Sara on the last bulletin - so I'm posting it again.

Sara always has a great sense of humor, loves a good chin wag (chat) with her mates (friends), will call anyone on their codswallop (baloney), always is up for a do (party), and we love to kid her about speaking “English” and asking her to define certain words and phrases and we laugh when she then tells us to put a sock in it (shut up).  However, there are several things about Sara that we are not au fait (familiar), until now.  Sara shared with us a little bit about her life.  Pay attention – you could be quizzed on this.
