Welcome to Burlingame Rotary Club

Established 1925

 
 
Our next meeting is September 19th and is a lunch meeting at 12:15pm at Poplar Creek.  Our speaker will be Lauren Barranti (Mrs. Ricardo Ortiz) who will speak on home medical equipment.  Golf Tournament chairman Mike Horwitz will be presiding and he will be soliciting volunteers for a variety of tasks at the October 1st golf tournament.  So if you are not playing, please come prepared to sign-up to volunteer. 
 
Marilyn Orr will also be collecting final sign-ups for the club barbecue.  The barbecue is on October 1st at Peninsula Country Club - it follows the golf tournament with cocktails beginning at 5:00pm and dinner at 6:00pm.  Since this is a mandatory event (you are going to pay for it whether you attend or not), why not attend?
 
Our September 26th social meeting will be held at CuriOdyssey (1651 Coyote Point Drive, San Mateo) from 5:30pm to 7:30pm.  It is a joint meeting with San Mateo Rotary.
 
 
 
A reminder - we are dark August 29th (fifth Wednesday of the month) and September 5 (Labor Day week.)
 
Our next meeting is not until September 12th and is a lunch meeting at 12:15pm at Poplar Creek.  Our speaker will be Bill Cook who will speak on cybersecurity.
 
Our next meeting is a social evening at 5:00pm at Steelhead Brewery on August 22 in the pool room.  Join us for beer, wine, cocktails and fun.  No charge to attend but you buy your own drinks.  If you decide to stay a while, later in the evening from 6:00pm to 9:00pm Steelhead is having live music on their patio with happy hour prices on beer and all you can eat brats.
 
After this meeting, we will be dark until our September 12th lunch meeting at Poplar Creek.  This is due to August having a 5th Wednesday (always dark) and the first week of September being a holiday week (Labor Day).
 
 
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.
 
 
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.
