Luncheon 8/31/2015

What a pleasure to be able to return to a Rotary meeting! I have been unable to attend due to staffing issues for most of the summer and I have really missed everyone and the fun of the Monday luncheons!


Lottery Master Jim Robinson conducted the drawing, and had a hard time finding the winner – until Kathy Krumlauf woke up and found her ticket! Although she should have been part of the Kienzle table consortium, this time she put the $12 in her OWN pocket! Luckily, she did not find the winning card for the BIG POT of $178.


Today we hosted our regular guest Russ Rittgers and Steve Clippinger, our speaker for the day.


Sgt. Larry Kienzle began by fining Kathy Krumlauf for her lottery win – although she expected to get hit harder, Larry only took the usual $2 plus one more for “reneging” on the table group.

Larry fined himself $2 for his picture in the paper, Joy Davis for her name in the paper, and Pam Cote for not coming to meetings in a long time.

Happy Bucks: Mark Hamon paid for his 50th birthday and his 22nd anniversary; Kathy Krumlauf paid $1 on behalf of Clay Ensler who hasn’t been able to attend recently due to business issues, but he misses us and also paid $1 to distribute flyers for the upcoming HVCH Foundation Car Show; Valery donated $5 – for her 45th anniversary, August birthday for her and her daughter, Morgan and just because she was very happy to be back to meetings; Jim Robinson was proud to announce that his son called and invited him to attend the first OSU Football game.

Sgt. Kienzle then threw out a late fine to Bill Rinehart for his picture on a local billboard.


Larry Kienzle passed around the Fair Gates schedule. There are still open slots, so if you haven’t signed up, please give Larry a call and help out with the ticket sales at the Fair Gates. Bring your spouse or a friend or even your kids if they are old enough to do the job. We need to get the remaining slots filled as soon as possible.
Future programs: 9/7 – No meeting for Labor Day; 9/14 – Dave Snipes; 9/21 – District Governor’s Meeting.


Today’s program was presented by Joe Murtha. Joe introduced Steve Clippinger to the Club. Steve is the new coach for the Logan High School Girl’s Basketball team.

Steve is originally from Lima, but was a teach for 30 years in the Lancaster schools. He also spent 10 years in school administration work in Lancaster. In addition he coached Girl’s basketball at Lancaster High School and Fairfield Union.

Steve took a little while to tell us all about his coaching style and what his goals for the team will be. He believes that sports are important, but education is paramount. He has high expectation of his players, both on the court and in their off court behavior. The first game of the season will be on November 21st against Lancaster, and Steve’s goal is to still be playing in March (at tournaments).

Welcome to Logan sports, Steve – we look forward to another winning season for the LHS Girls!
