Mystery Editor ~ 11/2/22
President BRUCE JACOBS welcomed members to our meeting and, after another delicious buffet presented by the TCC staff, called the meeting to order at 12:15.  We watched another in the series of ‘Imagine’ videos. MICHAEL MANNI led us in the Pledge and KHRIS DODGE accompanied us as we sang ‘God Bless America’. We shared a moment of silence in honor of GEORGE LARSEN and in memory of his wife Margaret, who passed away last weekend.
New member BRITTANY BATTLE inspired us with the knowledge that Rotary is building social capital and she used her listening ears to show us what it truly means to listen to one another.
KHRIS DODGE welcomed our many guests and our virtual viewers.
Our speaker was introduced by Past President BOB LOGAN, and Dr. Kevin Lehman spoke about ‘How should we educate our children.’ He said that he will be speaking to us again in February about ‘Why Women are Weird.’ He described the Lehman Academy as ‘old school’, saying that “Learning ought to be fun” and that setting expectations (and using the stink eye) are effective. He signed the book ‘Go To School’ for the Make Way for Books library.
There were no birthdays to celebrate today, and LARRY ADAMSON introduced new member TOM McKINNEY, director of Interfaith Community Services. Tom grew up speaking French and worked for many years with Up With People, and for ten years with Make A Wish in Minneapolis. He moved back to Tucson where he spent 5 years with the Tucson Symphony before taking the helm at IFCS.  Welcome to the club, TOM!
SCOTT VAUGHAN presented her Paul Harris to MARCIA KRUMWIEDE, who was born in Tucson and returned after college graduation. She started her own company, Love Your Body Sculpting after a long career in technical services with Copper State.  Her gift of little or no value was actually cute – a Rotary mug filled with bright yellow flowers!
KHRIS DODGE pulled the winning ticket and U of A grad JASON FLAX, who works for Lovitt & Touche in Insurance and Risk Management: Employee Benefits, won the auction, but not the King of Clubs. Dr. Lehman suggested that all of the losers just “Deal with it!”.
BRUCE JACOBS: Don’t forget to donate to the Miles of Memories and don’t forget that we are dark next week. The Salvation Army bell ringing will be in 5 locations on December 3.
MITCH PISIK: Rotaract presentation will be November 16 @ 6:00 pm
ALAN ROGERS: Replacement mixer will be at Proof on Monday, 11/7. Register on ClubRunner
CHARLOTTE HARRIS gave us the history of the Ride to end Polio and reminded us of the Gates matching funds. Those who can’t attend the ride on November 19 are urged to participate in the Indoor Ride (stationary bikes) or by walking, running, skateboarding (and physical activity that someone with polio would be unable to do.  Call her for more information.  The Pre-ride dinner will be on Friday night, 11/18 at Brother John’s.
JEANNE ZETAH celebrated the fact that, as of today, we are at 98.6% of our goal for car show tickets sold. This should increase once all of the sales have been counted. Way to go, Rotary!
President BRUCE thanked all for coming, welcomed TOM to the club, congratulated MARCIA on her Paul Harris, led us in a toast and we were adjourned.

Hutch's Pool Hike ~ 11/19/22
Hutch’s Pool 
It is time to get back on the trails and our next scheduled hike is quickly approaching and I just wanted to get some information in your hands.  This is a great hike that I missed last year, due to COVID.  With the fall weather upon us, now seems like the perfect time to make it up.  As the trailhead begins at the top of Sabino Canyon road we will also be utilizing the tram service which begins at 9AM and cost $15.  You can now purchase tickets in advance and on line using the below link 

Saturday, November 19th; 8:40am meet time at Sabino Canyon tram stop for 9am ride to the trail head
This is an intermediate rated hike covering 7.8 miles with 647 feet of elevation gain.  Projected hike time is 4/5-5 hours with lunch break at the pool.  Don't forget to bring snacks! 
I hope that many of you can join and look forward to hitting the trails again!

The Ride To End Polio
The Ride to End Polio raises funds for Polio Plus of our international foundation, The Rotary Foundation.  Donations in support of our club's riders in both El Tour and the Indoor Ride not only encourage them to ride, adds funds towards the donor's next Paul Harris Fellow, and is matched 2 to 1 by the Gates Foundation towards Rotary's polio effort to eliminate polio from the face of the earth.  Only two countries continue to be endemic, Pakistan and Afghanistan, though recently a crippling case of polio was reported in an unvaccinated young man in the New York City area.  Our club's El Tour riders include Jim Garrett, Aimee Graves, Tom Lickliter, Lee Olitzky, and JW Walkup.  Our club's Indoor riders include Jo DeChatelet, Charlotte Harris, Gary Hirsch, Jen Hoffman, Dot Kret, Ann Lancero, Bobby Larson, Jim Lubinski, Ernie Montagne, Steve Pickering, Darrell Stewart, Hugh Thompson, and Bruce Tunze.  If you wish to ride go online to  If you wish to support this effort, make your check out to The Rotary Foundation, put Ride to End Polio in the memo and let us know what rider you wish to support.  Thank you for this consideration.
Miles of Memories
Miles of Memories
I shared with those in attendance on the 13th that this next year I want us to share “Miles of Memories” together. I referenced the memories we have created together over the years and the impact we have had in so many others lives as well as our own.
The children and the parents receiving the grass ball field in San Carlos transformed from a dirt lot. The recipients and their families that obtained their mobility by receiving a wheelchair in Nogales. The memories of our member that participated along with the memories of working together on various local workday projects. Our hiking, golf, home hospitality fellowships and the list goes on.
I ask for you to help me on “our journey” over this next year by sponsoring me in the “Miles of Memories.” My goal is to walk a minimum of 35 miles a week, 1,825 for the year and honestly want to surpass 2000+. I would like for you to consider donating by the mile and we will share the outcome at the first meeting of each month on my progress.
Donations can go to the Foundation toward a Paul Harris, the President’s Discretionary Fund, or others of your choosing. I want us to have fun on our journey over this next year and to INSPIRE each other and our benefactors through the world of Rotary.
Thank you for your support in making our 102nd year one where we create memories together.
