Welcome to Burlingame Rotary Club

Established 1925

 
 
Our next meeting is a lunch meeting at 12:15pm at Poplar Creek on August 15.  Our speaker will be Kevin Gardiner, Burlingame Community Development Manager, who will report on new developments in Burlingame including the old Drive-In office building development and the Post Office development.
 
I know these meetings in August are in the middle of the "Dog Days" of summer and many of you are out of town.  However, if you are not out of town I hope you will attend this meeting.  We have made a modest attendance guaranty (significantly less than half of the club's membership) to Poplar Creek.  However, we are having trouble meeting it.  So if you can be there, it would greatly appreciated.
 
 
Our next meeting is a lunch meeting at 12:15pm at Poplar Creek on August 8.  We will hear an update on the recently completed Japanese Exchange visit from our sister club in Edogawa.  Our speaker will be our own Emily Matthews who will report on her recently completed Yukon trip.

Our next meeting is a lunch meeting at 12:15pm at Poplar Creek on August 1.  We will receive an update from two of our Burlingame High School scholarship recipients and we will be joined by their families.  Our program will consist of Fritz Brauner and Bob Doerr making a video presentation.  Additionally, I will not be at the meeting (many of you might consider this a good reason to attend) and Cheri Delacy Carr, our President-Elect, will have her first opportunity to run a Burlingame Rotary meeting.  Come out and support her.   
 
 
Welcome to Burlingame Rotary Year 2018-19:
 
Our first meeting of the new Rotary year is Wednesday, July 11th at 12:15pm at Poplar Creek.  We have a fun speaker lined up in Austin Carr, a stand-up comedian and son & grandson of members of our club.  Please join us for an enjoyable meeting.
 
At the meeting, I will also spend a few minutes reviewing the my plans for 2018-19 and our focus on the Three C's:
  • Camaraderie and Membership
  • Community Service
  • Charitable Giving (focusing on Scholarships, Local Community, Student Exchanges and International)
On July 11th, I will be reporting on our charitable giving activities and our successes in the past year with charitable giving and fundraising.  At future meetings we will talk about Camaraderie & Membership and Community Service. 
 
A Message From Incoming President Marc:
 
Dear Fellow Burlingame Rotarians,
 
This is the first of regular messages to that I plan to write you to update you on the activities of our club.  It is my honor to become the president of our club and to work with you to make our club one of the finest Rotary clubs in the Bay Area.
 
Let’s Review What Happened Last Week:
 
We “thanked” outgoing President Mike Horwitz or is it Horowitz with a hilarious debunking revolving around President Mike trying to sell our club’s number one profit maker, the Rotary Arms Motel.  Many thanks to all involved in the debunking including our debunking producer Mark Johnson, Chuck Voltz our emcee, Rabbi Jay Miller who gave the invocation, Jerry Winges with a newscast that was particularly difficult this debunking as apparently almost all pictures of Mike were burned prior to the debunking, Dennis Zell for another creative script and, of course, the cast of our production – Lage Andersen, Cheri Delacy Carr, John Delany, Cary Koh, Marilyn Orr and in a special appearance Father Michael Mahoney.
