Should Self Interest Motivate Service?
There is clear and compelling evidence that points to the physical and mental benefits of being of service to others. To attract and retain members, service organizations like Rotary and non-profits need to move away from altruistic appeals to service and embrace the self-interest of members and volunteers. In this presentation, Patrick Galvin will share his TEDx Talk “Should Self Interest Motivate Service?”, which can be watched here, and discuss membership engagement and recruitment ideas with a panel of Rotary Club of Tucson members.

Virtual Meeting #6! President BOB LOGAN reminded us closer fellowship is available through Zoom mini-meetings. Check the website and weekly bulletin for links to upcoming meetings.
PAT LENNAN: 80+ and still works out 4-6 times a week until an in-the-driveway mishap with his newly refurbished bicycle resulted in a broken coccyx.  He is recovering at home.
Liz McMahon: The good news is her brain tumor was benign.  The less good news, it had ossified, so they couldn’t remove it all.  After a series of hospital and rehab stays, she’s home now.
MICHELLE HATCH: This past March, her 10-year old son, Caleb, died suddenly.  This has been devastating for her and her family; who have started a GoFundMe page to raise funds to support children who want to play sports, something that was very important to Caleb.
Emails or calls can mean so much to fellow Rotarians going through rough times.
Pledge and song videos are worth checking out, as were the two Mother’s Day inspirational videos.
The presentation by Jannie Cox and Edmund Marquez, board members of Rio Nuevo, was highly informative. After an explanation of what Rio Nuevo is and how it is funded, Jannie and Edmund presented descriptions of the many projects undertaken by Rio Nuevo and their impact on Tucson.  The list was impressive, including new hotels, businesses, restaurants, renovations to all of the Convention Center, Sunshine Mile, and more ... all of which improve the quality of life in our community and provide a basis for hopefully a quicker rebound from the economic impacts of the current pandemic.
Our virtual guests were introduced.  We want to thank all those watching these virtual meetings.
PAUL HALLUMS offered a remembrance of Bill Gilkinson, an RCOT past president, Honorary Member and former TPD chief, who died in January at age 95.
President BOB’s parting toast spoke of friendship ... with a typical Reign of Terror twist at the end!
New Member Spotlight ~ Mike Franklin
Who was your Sponsor?
Sponsor- Wayne Peate / Mentor - Don Rollings
Where were you born?  Where did you grow up?
Born in Tucson, Arizona. Grew up in Santa Cruz California, Templeton California and Tucson.
Where did you go to school?  Your Alma Mater?
University of Arizona Eller School of Business.
Tell us about your career(s).
Started off in the Marine Corps Infantry. Decided that I hated living in the cold and swamps so I got out and attended the U of A. After graduation I worked in the private sector in advertising and ERP Software sales. Soon realized my heart was in the military (and I did miss the cold and the swamps) so rejoined the military as an Army Logistical Officer. I ended up in recruiting and FEMA emergency management (which I am still not missing). Currently, I'm a stay-at-home dad trying to decide what I want to do when I grow up.
How can your experiences help other Club members?
I would be very willing to assist anyone with any projects that they may have; club related or other. I am fluent in the languages of Military Recruiter and Military Life so I'd be very happy to help any member's friends, family, etc. looking to go into the military.
What accomplishment(s) are you most proud of?
My family is amazing! I feel that I may be somewhat responsible for that (if just a smidge). I LOVED my military career and have been most proud of all of the Humanitarian missions which I served. Being a leader was fun, being a subordinate to amazing leaders was fun too. I am a board member of a Tucson organization that provides transitional housing and supportive resources to veterans and their families.
What are your hobbies...your favorite things to do?
Currently, I very much enjoying refamiliarizing myself with Tucson and the South West. I am a total nerd when it comes to History and Economics clashing together- ie Military and Fiscal Counter Insurgency Operations and international diplomacy to the history of the potato migration.
What would surprise people to know about you?
All of my secrets of course!
What has been your best "Rotary Moment"?
Easy! The day Wayne asked me to attend as a guest. I was really surprised by how supportive Tucson Rotary is in the Tucson AND the international communities. It turned out that I ran into a few friends of mine who were members. It was an amazing day.
What is the best part of Rotary...for YOU?
Equally; getting to meet and learn from the members and the opportunity to serve this community.
Please take some time to introduce yourself to Mike Franklin... WELCOME MIKE!!

I have set my gatherings up where folks will initially go into a waiting room and I will let them in.   Also, I have set it up where only those with computer video are able to join in (no phones).  Finally, all microphones are set to mute when they initially join.  As host I will remind guests to unmute when needed but to keep the mute on when they are not talking.
