Initiated by Nancy Palumbo, The Fool's Cup has come to honor the most spirited new member of the year.  This year the Cup was passed from Jay Beckwith to Diane Bucher.  Diane has thrown herself into the  club's activities with dedication and an enormous capacity for fun, demonstrated here by her great smile.  Diane must display the Fool's Cup for one year in her office and at the end of that year, add a little something that signifies her Jester experience.  Past winners are:  Susan Jones, Greg Marguglio, David Wasley, and Jay Beckwith.

This year we are most fortunate to have a guest speaker with first hand experience in the South Pacific during WWII.   Dr. Charles Greene served with the 3rd Marine Division from 1944-45 and participated in both campaigns for the islands of Guam and Iwo Jima.  Following the cessation of hostilities, he was transferred to the 1st Marine Division in Northern China.
After the war, he persued his education at the University of Chicago under the GI Bill and received a Ph.D., in chemistry, in 1952.  Working for Shell Oil Company for 30 years, he built commercial plants and invented the process to produce industrial chemicals, synthetic rubber and detergents.
Following retirement from Shell, he worked as an expert witness in the Federal courts in the United States, and also courts in England and Germany.
Currently he serves as a substitute teacher in science in Petaluma, Rohnert Park, Roseland and Santa Rosa school districts.  He tutors chemistry and math two days per week at Santa Rosa High School. 
Don't miss this opportunity to meet this distinguished member of our community.

The Planting Project was a huge success!  Richard Hillman was the first there at 8:50 AM and Howard Brunner arrived at 8:58 AM.  They were very proud of that so I thought I'd mention it.  The remain three (Marjie Pettus, Pam Iverson and Susan Jones) of us arrived shortly after 9:00 AM.  The short story was we planted close to 1,000 plants during the three and a half hours we were there.  The weather was beautiful.  City staff were great!  The guys got to digging and the women and children got to planting.  It was perfect!  I can't walk today and I have it on good authority that another Rotarian is a tad stiff.  Hats off to Richard, Howard and Pam as they left our planting project to go work at the Wonder League.  Now that's dedication!  Thanks for a great day everyone!

The HEALDSBURG  WONDER LEAGUE. had its opening game on  Saturday, May 14th and a fun time was had by all!  League Commissioner  George Lawson organized a great day of fun for the participating Rotarians,  children with special needs and volunteers from the community.  No one was injured and everyone got to bat, hit the ball and  run as many bases as they wanted.  The children all seemed to have a   really great time playing ball and several adults watching were heard to say  that this is a wonderful activity for the children, the community and Sunrise  Rotary.  As much as the kids enjoyed the day, I think all of us  participating and helping out enjoyed and appreciated the day as much as they  did.


The "Golden Voice" of Fred  Walter was heard announcing each player as they came to bat as well as  announcing close plays in the field.  Terry "Zito" pitched (like  his name sake Barry Zito, is past his prime and way overpaid for his limited  skills) and has an ERA of 10.9 after this game.  Sunrise Rotarians Jack Mallinson, Richard  Hillman, Sandi Passalaqua, Bob Durler, Pam Everson, Larry Orr, Howard Brunner,  Andy Esquivel and Archie Julian all assisted Commissioner Lawson by coaching,  acting as player buddies, registering participants and providing refreshments  (thanks Archie).  The rumor is that Terry got to pitch because he pledged  a $50 donation to the RI Foundation for the privilege of playing ball with these children. It's a  standing offer - so if you want to pitch one of these games simply pledge more  than Terry's $50 and you too can pitch in the WONDER LEAGUE - the satisfaction  of being a part of this activity is well worth the donation.


There will be games each of the next 4  Saturdays, 1:30 pm at Foss Creek Community Center - Come out,  participate,  and watch the kids have a wonderful time!
