Rotary Minute: As a Rotarian, how have you provided service?

A ROTARY do you see yourself in ROTARY....Active, Not Active,  Engaged,  Educated?.... Every person can help...  ROTARY  gives you a vehicle to do "Service Above Self".

Dr. Aditi.....the premier Dentist in Redmond

Dr Aditi Agarwal's new DENTIST office is located on Avondale and 116th in Redmond. That is down by the local PCC store and SNAP FITNESS. . She is offering a one time discount for NEW CLIENTS. Dr. Aditi was our sponsor this fall 2010, of the 3rd grade dictionary project in our community. Einstein Elementary School, is just up behind her location. Thanks to her, 62 kids at that school received Dictionaries to take home....Thank You, Dr. Aditi for helping KIDS. She showed the kids HOW to brush and floss on a large model of TEETH, so they will take better care of their own teeth.

Her office is fresh and clean with beautiful colors of golds, olive and eggplant. Every chair has a TV to watch and is comfortable with a blanket, if you wish. The staff are friendly, nice and all are super professional. My teeth have never been so clean of well cared for. Dr. Aditi and her family are wonderful advocates of the Redmond Rousers and we wish them well in their new digs....right here in our own area. See the video tour of their office on the link below. So, pick up the phone and call them at 425-29TOOTH....for a consultation or appointment.

3 California ROTARY clubs...on President Kelly's AWESOME list

3 make-ups in one week....that's a lot of ROTARY... in a GOOD way! While visiting the southern California area, in Jan-Feb 2011, I decided to do a few make-ups and see what was going on. I was pleasantly surprised, and here's what I found out. People are very friendly. They really go out of their way to welcome you. They SING...a lot.... and they have GREAT projects that help their communities.... and together we all want world peace.

The Carlsbad Rotary meets at The Hilton Gardens, near the beach, on Thursday evenings and is a really AWESOME, hip, group of people. They are proud to be close to camp pendelton and work closely with the Camp Pendelton Rotary for lots of things. The night I was there they gave out a Paul Harris +1 award & they had a guy in a CHEESE head, and Packers snuggie....for the upcoming SUPERBOWL. We took a picture, but it got lost in syberspace.  I also lost their club pin, that I was given. It's a beautiful, Bird of Paradise flower, the Rotary wheel and their name on it. I am delighted I had it for 3 days...but have lost it somewhere in my travels. Easy come, easy go.

The next club I went to was at the Carlsbad HI- Noon club. They too were very nice...and had a LOT of great programs and visitors too. One visitor, of whom was there from the Chicago area, was looking for ways to increase membership, like us. The club president greeted each and every guest as they came in to the meeting, all 60 of them.  EVERYONE signed up at the front table. The front table was staffed with 3 people....I was so envious....just watching this ritual and learned that with better communication, it can be done. Way to go volunteers!!!

And last, but certainly not least...the Santa Barbara Sunrise club. They meet at 7am and taunt you on their website to "come see the BEST club in the universe"....and so we did! Gordon & I had the best breakfast on our whole journey there with them. Their speaker for the day was none other than a gentleman who had been touched by polio as a child. He thanked Rotary for helping eradicate it..and our work we do.  He is also the son of the FAMOUS AMOS, of "AMOS and ANDY", from the radio days in the 20's and 30's. The stories he told made the people come to life. THANKS!

My trip was long...but very good. I was able to reach out and see Rotary in 3 clubs, make new friends, and see family and friends along the way. I am renewed and inspired once again to my commitment of ROTARY, the Redmond Rousers and our "Service Above Self"....

SUPER BOWL...of Rotary clubs

The Super Bowl of Rotary Clubs in my mind is our very own...REDMOND ROUSERS ROTARY Club. Although...this week I visited the Rotary Club of Carlsbad, while I am on the road. They welcomed me and my friend Vickii and had MR. "Cheezehead" you can see....posing for photos. The Carslbad,California club was a fun dinner club just like ours....THANKS for making us feel welcomed.

As you watch the Super Bowl this Sunday and place bets for your winning teams,or eat with friends, or yell and scream at the TV. Just know in our little corner of the world, in Redmond, Washington, USA...we truly are the Superbowl of ROTARY clubs.....because, We Make a difference!!!! Thanks You for helping us locally & globally, to help others....and create WORLD PEACE.
