Loneliness and Solitude in Later Adulthood: The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly
This Wednesday, May 20th, RCFC welcomes Dr. Gloria Luong for our noon Zoom meeting.  An assistant professor in the CSU College of Health and Human Sciences, our speaker is a published author and research psychologist in the field of emotional health, and the impact of stresses through adulthood and later life.
The 2019 Sydney to Hobart Yacht Race!

Last week RCFC took advantage of “stay-at-home” technology with a live, long-distance presentation from Lane Cove, Australia.  Following an on-point inspiration from Larry Kunter  (the metaphor of sailing and life), we enjoyed a presentation on the 75 year old Rolex Sidney - Hobart Yacht Race by Lindsay May.  Lindsay, speaking to us from his home in Lane Cover, Australia, is a veteran of 47 consecutive Sydney to Hobart races as well as many other sailing events around the world.

April BoD Meeting Report: $10,000 Donation
President Rob Marschke reports that the board made several announcements and decision at the April meeting.
  • An anonymous RCFC member made a $10,000 donation to the First Presbyterian Church to help pay for the projector and lens upgrades needed.  This will smooth the way for RCFC to move to FPC by reducing significantly the funding needed to upgrade the projection system.  Thank you, Anonymous!!
  • The Board of Directors approved 1) new By-Laws drafted by John Trone, Robin Steele, Del Benson, Rob Marschke and Phyllis Abt, and 2) a new Constitution, recommended by Rotary International.
  • Del Benson announced that Bill Timpson will be the new Rotarian leader of the Rotaract Membership.
  • Marty Bachman announced that although RYLA and Young RYLA summer camps are canceled this year, graduating seniors enrolled this year will be eligible to enroll again next year.
