Good News

This quarter we are sharing our Good News with Exceptional Equestrians, as chosen by Tom Guyette. We had people mentioning birthdays, heallthy grand kids and the like. Mindi spoke about her granddaughter, who been born prematurely finally getting into double digits - 11 pounds. Now that’s good news.

Club Business

John from Flowerama was with us to solicit our assistance with this years Valentine’s Day deliveries. We have done this each year for the past several years, with participation growing each year. Deliveries are mapped out and a carload takes about 1-2 hours. The club earns $6 per delivery. We had five teams sign up today. We can atill add 1-2 more. Teams are a driver and passenger in a van or SUV type vehicle. Its easy, fun and a great way to get to know a fellow Rotarian. If interested, please contact President Steve at (920) 737-4958.

The District Conference was announced. It takes place on May 1-2 in Oshkosh (B’ Gosh). This is a GREAT way to learn more about Rotary, what is available to help us do our work and to meet other Rotarians. Speakers, the EAA and events are all part of this years event. Come celebrate District Governor Handrick’s year. You can come for the entire event or just portions of it. Details are available on the club and district websites ( &

Free Enterprise Award (FEA) planning continues. The Nominations Committee will meet this week to discuss, and hopefully, select this years recipient. Details on results of that meeting will follow.

We had a second visit from a prospective Rotarian, Rachel Reas from BayCare. She agreed to help deliver flowers on Valentines Day. Hopefully she will find Rotary an interesting and fun place to make a difference.

Rotary Volunteering Opportunities

Lots of opportunities exist for Rotarians to volunteer. We know you are already doing so. So, we ask that when you sign in each week, please take a moment and add your hours to the Volunteer Tracking Sheet at the sign in table. This can include any volunteering you have done for your church, for Rotary, for a non-profit. We want to be able to show the community that Rotary gives back and this will be a big help to do so.

As always, avenues for volunteering are with our partners at the YMCA, Green Bay Public Schools and Salvation Army. But wherever you volunteer, please let us know.

Our Presentation

Today’s presentation was by Jan Oettinger and Mark Nicholas from “Cup O Joy”. COJ is a local entity that provies a venue for local, regional and national musical and comedic talent each Friday and Saturday evening. While being faith based, it is more than a group singing only religious hymns. Mark Nicholas told how he is a ‘rocker’ and was looking for a place to hear bands. Today his kids put COJ on the family calendar each month. Jan give us more of a history of the club. She and her husband were part of a band that wanted a place to play as an alternative to only the bar scene. So, 30 years ago they started COJ on the east side, behind the old Larsen Canning Company (the Five Corners area of Baird & Main Street). After several years they acquired the building they are currently in on south Broadway. Talented banks and acts come and perform for donations only, but she reports that they have someone every weekend (excepting if Christmas falls within the Thur-Mon window). The current roster (Jan & Feb) shows a variety of acts with something to fill most tastes. This is attached, or you can go to to check out the schedule and listen to clips of upcoming acts. That way you can find out what the show might be like.

COJ announced last week that they will be moving. Jan told us the recently acquired a temple next door the the 1951 Bar on Bond Street. This is across the parking lot from where we held our Christmas Party. The building will allow for additional seating, increasing capacity from 200 to nearly 500, while also allowing for space to rent for music lessons, workshops, etc. They expect to move around mid 2020, so keep the website handy for updates.

The 50 / 50 raffle winner took home $15.00. Judy Nagel tried to find the elusive Queen of Hearts, but only found her husband, the King of Hearts. That pot continues to grow.
