Rotary was founded on fellowship, an ideal that remains a major attraction of membership today. Club members enjoy the camaraderie with like-minded professionals, and club projects offer additional opportunities to develop enduring friendships. Rotary club members who travel have friendly contacts in almost every city in the world.

Ho, Ho Ho.  Santa brought gifts for nice Rotarian boys and girls, President Del read a Holiday poem, PDG Phil Murphy told stories of wisdom, Bill Moellenhoff sang a song, we had holiday videos and Rotarians and their families shared favorite memories, fueled by BYOB refreshments and a general holiday spirit.  For 2021 we'll have double-hugs, to make up for this year's social distancing.  Thanks to Judy Boggs and the Fellowship Committee for a wonderful Zoom Holiday Party.  To view the recording Click Here.
Last week we enjoyed a special program - a 100th birthday celebration for long term RCFC member, John Matsushima. The program had 2 parts - first a proclamation by Mayor Wade Troxell declaring Johnny’s birthday, December 24, as John “Johnny” Matsushima Day!  This  was followed by a video of a recent interview by one of FCRC’s  youngest members, Janis Roeder. Following the video, Johnny answered some questions from members.  Photo: CSU Scoreboard
On September 4, we met in the late afternoon at THE FARM at Lee Martinez Park for the annual John Matsushima Steak Fry in  place of our usual noon meeting. There was no formal meeting. President Rob Marschke welcomed all members and guests and thanked John Matsushima, his cooking cohorts, and all the other individuals who made the event such a success.Special thanks go out to the CSU Meat Judging Team, which catered the food.  The steaks and sides drew favorable comments from all. We were entertained by the music of “Yer Neighbors”, featuring our own Amy Brackenbury and her husband Lars, Del Benson, and Martin Limbird.
