9.   Club news/Business

  1. Maranda Saling introduced Helen Stayer of the American Cancer Society.  Ms. Stayer spoke briefly about the Relay For Life of Louisville/Alliance that will be held on Friday, May 31, 2013 from 6:00 p.m to 12 noon on Saturday, June 1.  The main events are the lighting of hundreds of memorial luminaria and the closing ceremony.  Each team member is encouraged to secure $100 in pledges or contributions and their target is to have someone from a team walking the entire 18 hours.  Like last year’s Relay, this event will be held at the Marlington High School Stadium at 10450 Moulin Ave NE, Alliance, OH.  Please visit the following Web site for more information about this special event:  www.relayforlife.org/louisvillealliance  “Our team is Louisville Rotary Club and you just click join team! Thanks”  Please contact the American Cancer Society if you are willing to participate in a 20-year Cancer Prevention Study.  Participants must be 30 to 65 years of age and cannot have had cancer.
  2. Ryan Heckert from the Stark County Board of Development Disabilities spoke briefly about the forthcoming vote on Tuesday, May 7.  The agency serves approximately 3,300 people in such areas as Education, Life Skills, and Crisis Intervention.  This vote will “combine two existing levies — a 1.9-mill that expires at the end of 2013 and a 1.4-mill that expires at the end of 2014 — into one 3.3-mill tax issue.”  These are NOT new taxes!!!  For more information about the Board of DD, please go to:  http://www.starkdd.org/
  3. Ken Smith mentioned that the flag partnership with local cemeteries is not feasible at this time.  He also stated that he and Jim Edwards will be speaking before the Coshocton Rotary in the near future.  Jim Edwards stated that $5,000 in flag revenue has been received to date and that by May 1 he will ask for assistance in stuffing invoices for those who have not yet paid.  There will also be a flag assembly party in the month of May and the first flag delivery will occur just before Memorial Day (May 27).
  4. Ron Derry said our club will conduct a farewell reception for the GSE group on Sunday,  May 19 and we will have to ask our visitors about their dietary restrictions. 
  5. Steve Roberts has agreed to serve on the Economic & Community Development Committee with Cynthia Kerchner who will be returning to Louisville in the near future.
  6. Our Rotary Club needs to recruit a Sophomore young lady from either Louisville or Nimishillen Township to sponsor in the annual Constitution Week Queen’s Pageant.
  7. There will be a free presentation tonight at Kent State University at Stark campus.  Mr. Chris Palmer, an award-winning filmmaker and producer, wildlife environmentalist and author, from American University is the speaker.
  8. We will be talking soon about our Rotary Club Community Grants.  Our Club awarded $6,000 last year and it remains to be determined how much we award this year.
  9. The Youth Exchange Program is looking for more host families for a maximum of three months.  There will be an important information meeting in the near future.
  10. Please go to our Rotary Club Web site and make sure your current information is correct:  Member Access Update.
  11. Our Rotary Club is applying for a District the Jack Vogel award for Public Relations and will include the many write-ups we send to The Herald and Denny Valentine’s excellent photographs.
  12. Please remember to contact President Yeagley if you plan to attend a particular meeting.  He needs to keep the kitchen staff on alert as to the number of persons who will eat.  Thank you for your cooperation!

10.       Action Item:  Following a report by Eva Roshong on the excellent community-based Leadership Stark County, which was developed by the Canton Chamber of Commerce, the following motion was  made:

Motion made by Ken Smith/seconded by Al Gress to allocate up to $250 toward the cost of participation in Leadership Stark County for Eva Roshong as a representative of the Louisville Rotary Club.

Motion was approved by a unanimous vote.

8.       Program: Ariel Tenney and Derrek Boland

a.       Both students participated in the Four Way Speech contest a few weeks ago.

b.       Ariel’s speech focused on role models who put others before themselves.  She cited Brian Murphy, a cop who confronted a gun man and continued to help after being shot 9 times; and nurses carrying newborns to safety during Hurricane Sandy.  However, it doesn’t take something large to be helpful. A little action can make a difference.


c.
        Derrek’s speech focused on moderation and how finding balance in life (per Aristotle) can create a better society. He used bankrupt pro-athletes, Dante’s Inferno, Magic Johnson, and Wall Street to illustrate how moderation meets all four points of the Four-Way Test.

7.       Updates

  1. Denny Valentine has made flyers looking for host families. Please see him if you can put one in your place of business.
  2. Ken Smith indicated if we cannot find a flag on our route to CALL (330-417-1527) him instead of emailing him.
  3. Maranda Saling said we have raised over $1000 for Relay for Life. If you want to donate or walk, please contact her. To date, Liz Hand is our top contributor.
  4. Jay Barton informed us that the Louisville Community Fund is making a fund to support Washita Valley Enterprises’ employees.  Washita has opened an office in Louisville and has contributed twice to our levy campaigns.  Many employees in their Oklahoma City office are sleeping there because they are unable to get to their home (or what is left of it) and families. One employee lost their child when the elementary school was hit. Rick and Raeann Guiley are traveling to Oklahoma City and will personally deliver 100% of the funds raised. To donate, contact Jay Barton.  Lanse Leach moved to donate $500 from Rotary. Mark Sigler seconded.  All approved.  Funds will come from our Louisville Community Fund.

8.       Program: Exchange Students

a.       Rotary President Dave Yeagley presented each of our outbound exchange students with $1000 to be used for travel to their host countries.

b.       Marcie Blandford is leaving at the end of August for Southern France (approx. 30 minutes from Geneva).  Her host family dynamic is very similar to her current family. One of her host sisters will be an exchange student to Thailand.  Marcie chose France because she recently took French 4 at LHS and is familiar with their culture and country. Upon return, she hopes to go to the Art Institute in Cincinnati and focus on culinary arts/pastries.

c.        Nate Yeagley will be leaving for Joinville, Brazil. It is the largest (521,000 people) city in the state of Santa Catarina.  He is being hosted by Rotary District 4650 and his host family owns a fast food restaurant that serves American food. He has been trying to learn Portuguese through Rosetta Stone.  He is also happy that due to opposite seasons, he will enjoy 18 months of spring/summer.  When he returns, he hopes to attend Kent State.

d.       Grace DaSilva is sad she will be leaving soon as the last 9 months were the best experience of her life.  She met many great people and finds Rotary and rotary exchange students to be a great family – no one cares about accents or skin color.  She is very grateful to Rotary, her host families, her parents, and for this opportunity.  She will be back in August to attend Walsh University.

Meeting Notes -Wednesday, May 29, 2013

http://louisvillerotary.com/  & on Facebook: Louisville Rotary Club

 

1.       Call to Order– Meeting called to order by President David Yeagley with 23 of 46 members present.

2.       Visitors and Guests: Gail Gress, Jason Pugh, Dana Rode

3.       Updates

  1. Flags should be returned by this evening. Please contact Ken or Dave.
  2. Cynthia Kerchner indicated the Rotary will be sponsoring the Louisville Farmer Market August 10, Sept 7, October 5 from 8am to noon. To reserve a space (with free set-up) contact 330-875-9282. Please spread the word and more information will follow.
  3. Maranda Saling said we have raised about $1500 for Relay for Life. If you want to donate or walk tomorrow night, please contact her.
  4. Flags for our Fathers lost funding. The club conducted an email vote and decided to donate $200 to help place flags on the graves of our veterans.

4.       Program: Al Gress – The History of Paradise United Church of Christ (PUCC)

a.       Secretary Disclaimer: For the most accurate and detailed information, please buy Al’s book – available through him or the PUCC office for $15. I did my best with the notes.

b.       PUCC is celebrating its 150th Anniversary this year.  Greg Anderson’s wife, Jen is heading the celebration committee and Al and his wife Gail, are on the committee.  Al was volunteered to write the history of PUCC and referenced the 100 year celebration research and Ken Smith’s book.

c.        In 1802, Nimishillen Township was first recorded. In 1803, Ohio became a state.  Lewisville applied for a post office and upon finding out there was already a Lewisville, became Louisville.  We had a tavern (near the physical therapy place on Main St) in the early 1800s and our own brewery in 1865.

d.       Louisville was a blend of settlers and the Protestant contingent desired a place to worship (St. Louis was established approx. 25 years before PUCC). Abrahm Miller, a charismatic leader, held a worship service that gained popularity. They petitioned to be recognized as a church and became the German Reformed Church.  Some services were done in German. In 1868, they bought land for $300 (which some thought was too expensive).  Building plans were made and the construction was faith-based. The congregation donated labor, wagons, etc and they solicited money in Canton. The building was completed and contained an organ (controversial). Miller is considered the Father of Paradise Church.

e.        Dr. Liberman served from 1873 to 1900.  In 1892, they rebuilt the church for $10,600 and it was judged to be the finest architecture found in a church outside of a major city.  Volunteers laid the sidewalk and the rose glass window was a donation. Services switched to English only.  After facing opposition to abolishing members for not attending, Dr. Liberman resigned leaving the church with 375 members and no debt.

f.        In 1903, communion changed to individual servings instead of a communal cup. This caused controversy.  In 1907, the church gained a $3500 organ, which some members thought was the institute of the devil. They adopted Eastern Standard Time as the official time for services, which caused farmers to feel mistreated.  The village council (primarily Catholics) told the church members they would have to clean up after their horses, that were hooked to the front of the church and defacing Main Street during the 2+ hour services. The congregation refused, but ultimately bought a lot for $200 for the horses (presently the fenced in lot behind the brick house across the street).  The alley way was made one way (as it is today) once automobiles created a traffic jam between services.

g.        In the early 1900s, the church sponsored Boy Scout Troop 44, which they still do today (and Al and Jim Edwards participated). Volunteers dug a basement in 1912 (currently the old kitchen).  The church was rented for $15 for the High School graduation. They also moved their cemetery from Washington St. to Union Cemetery.   The Louisville Rotary met at the church, but left because they could not smoke after eating (although some did in the restrooms). In 1924, Paradise was first found in the records and the name (without vote) became Paradise Reformed Church.  Many people stopped attending during the Great Depression because they were too poor to contribute and after the attacks on Pearl Harbor, the church donated their basement space to the Red Cross for training.  Four Paradise men died in the War.

h.       Rev. Kaiser was the longest tenured pastor from 1955-1984. He added many features to the church including the Parish Paragraphs, the speaker system, the church library, the bell choir, and a $425,000 addition finished in July of 1985.  His wife Barbara and Jean Jackson worked to bring the first foreign exchange student to Louisville, hosted by the Jackson family. In 1957, after church mergers, Paradise became Paradise United Church of Christ.

i.         Rev. Krabill served from 1984 to 1992.  He wanted to buy a computer but this was controversial.  Together with Pat Smith, Ken Smith’s wife, they established Kid Watch, an after school program still going today.  The greater UCC supported gay rights in the mid1980s, but PUCC declined. This occurred again in 2006, but 83% turned support down.  In 1987, E.C. Lair donated the organ.

j.         Dr. Roberts served from 1994-2008 and was great at getting people to work together. His Carpenters was formed, which is a group of volunteer men who provide services for the church (in keeping with the volunteer spirit as described above). Dr. Roberts started coffee hour, children’s moments, the golf scramble fund-raiser, and Friday night football dinners.  In 1999, the church underwent a renovation and addition that included air conditioning and an elevator.  In 2004, they launched their website.

k.       The church is currently led by Rev. Joyce Schorer, whose diverse ministry background helps PUCC to continually define itself.

f.        Jim Edwards presented a financial overview of 2013 and 2014.  The club receives most of its income in May, but spends most of its budgeted money in September-December, creating a potential cash flow problem from January-April.  Solutions include tabling spending requests to business meetings/financial committee instead of during a presentation and/or sticking to our budget.

Meeting Notes -Wednesday, June 19, 2013

http://louisvillerotary.com/  & on Facebook: Louisville Rotary Club

 

1.       Call to Order– Meeting called to order by President David Yeagley with 21 of 47 members present.

2.       Pledge of Allegiance and the Four Way Test

3.       Happy Dollars

a.       Jim Edwards is happy we’ve passed the 1080 flag mark. We currently have 1087 flags.

b.       Betty Derry is happy they had help with their flag route and that there haven’t been any more spiders.

c.        Cynthia Kerchner is happy her cousin, Theresa Cusma, is here.

d.       Mike Snyder is happy he had lunch with our July 31st speakers.

4.       Guests: Heather Shive, Theresa Cusma

5.       Updates:

a.       Ken Smith said everyone is doing a great job with flags. Our next posting is July 1st and 2nd (or June 30th).

b.       Cynthia Kerchner reminded us that August 10th is the first farmers market.

c.        The Taste of Louisville is July 17th at the Water’s Edge from 5pm to 7:30. Cost is $6 at the door, and only $5 if you bring a nonperishable food item for the Community Cupboard.

d.       Jim Edwards reminded us to check that we’ve posted all the flags on our route. If we can’t find a post, call Ken Smith.

e.        The Installation Banquet is Wednesday, June 26th with the cash bar starting at 6pm and dinner at 7pm. RSVP to Wendy Harlan with your meal choice (steak, chicken, fish, vegetarian) or let her know you cannot attend.  The speaker will be Massillon’s museum’s Mandy Altimuspond and she will talk about the Titanic – complete with artifacts and pictures. 

6.       Program: Theresa Cusma, Exec. Director of Coleman Professional Services

a.       Theresa has been a mediator for the last 15 years and before that taught at Kent State (which she still teaches conflict resolution classes). Four years ago her practice merged with Coleman and they are now called Coleman Professional Services. The business also recently acquired Trillum.  This makes them the 29th largest non-profits in Ohio, but they do have consultation and data service sections that are for-profit in support of the non-profit. Ohio does not fund mediation.  They operate in 7 different counties.

b.       Coleman offers many products and services, one of which is mediation. There is a decrease in the quality of life from unresolved conflicts.  These can be dealt with on a rights-based process (legality) and/or an interest-based process (perception).  Mediation is creative and flexible and allows parties to say what they want to say. 

c.        Coleman offers training to improve conflict resolution skills and their staff of 6 handles approximately 800 mediations a year. Their customer base is diverse, as they get cases from the courts, school districts, families, neighbors, and landlords. The Louisville School District will use their services starting next fall for truancy issues. They currently have an 80% agreement rate with these issues.

d.       By asking questions and understanding each other’s perceptions, a shift of thinking occurs. It is very rewarding to have two adversaries work out their differences.
