Welcome our Newest Member: Maggie Wolarik
At our September 26th meeting we installed Maggie Wolarik as our newest member. Maggie has been a source of boundless energy since she started visiting the Club. We are delighted to have her as a member.
Maggie was born and raised in California. She has played the violin since the age of 9. She worked for Blue Cross of California for 10 years negotiating Hospital contracts and lived in Maine for 10 years and ran an insurance agency.
She has two children. Her son, Brandyn, is a CPA in Los Angeles and her daughter, Brandyn, is an educator with the County of L.A.
She currently lives in Midland Park and is married to her college sweetheart. She works at State Farm in Midland Park, teaches yoga at Powerhouse in Mahwah, and plays violin at weddings and other events.
Friendship Exchange Visitors
Our September 26th meeting also welcomed a number of Rotarians from England. Rotarians from our District visited England a few months ago and stayed with these English Rotarians. Now we had a chance to return the favor. (To learn about Friendship Exchange, see last week’s edition of the Hartman Gazette).
Chris and Lesley Kraushaar, Trevor and Ann Ironmonger, Andrew and Gill Campbell, and Keith Jones are all from District 1220 in the North of England.
Their Club, Hope Valley, meets at 7:30 pm at the Grouse Inn, Longshaw, in Sheffield. The presented the Club with an interesting photo tour of their District.
Hearing Ambassadors
Our visitors also gave the Club an insightful and interesting presentation on one of their key initiatives: Hearing Ambassadors. They urge everyone to be aware of those who have difficulty hearing, and to make when setting up meetings to assure that the hearing impaired can easily see faces (to lip read), to use microphones (and use them correctly), and to not all talk at once.
Rotary Hosts Interact Advisers
On Tuesday, September 24, the District 7490 Youth Services Committee hosted what we hope will be the first of many "Thank You" receptions for the Interact Advisers in the District. About 20 teachers accepted our invitation and enjoyed cocktails and finger food while making new friends and sharing ideas for their Interact Clubs.
They were particularly pleased to hear that the District will once again be hosting an "Interact Conference" in April.
The first motto of Rotary International, “He Profits Most Who Serves Best," was approved at the second Rotary Convention, held in Portland, Oregon, in August 1911.
The phrase was first stated by a Chicago Rotarian, Art Sheldon, who made a speech in 1910 which included the remark, "He profits most who serves his fellows best."
At about the same time, Ben Collins, president of the Rotary Club of Minneapolis, Minnesota, commented that the proper way to organize a Rotary club was through the principle his club had adopted-"Service, Not Self."
These two slogans, slightly modified, were formally approved to be the official mottoes of Rotary at the 1950 Convention in Detroit- "He Profits Most Who Serves Best" and "Service Above Self."
The 1989 Council on Legislation established "Service Above Self" as the principal motto of Rotary, since it best explains the philosophy of unselfish volunteer service.
This week's chuckle!
