Finding the American Dream by Bill Clevlen

"About Bill Clevlen"

"Traveling across America and telling the stories of great people and places is the thrill of a lifetime" says Bill Clevlen.

"Bill On The Road" was born in 2013 after becoming fed up with so many negative stories, focusing on bad things about cities and states - instead of highlighting the positives.

Clevlen started in broadcasting at the age of 20 while hosting a daily comedy segment on the most listened to radio show in St. Louis, Missouri - Frank O Pinion & The Large Morning Show in the Afternoon. He's worked for a local television station, been a "soft rock" radio announcer, and co-host/announcer of the Mid-America Emmy Awards."

Bowling Alleygations 1-18-21 | Matthew Weiss ~ Team 1

Bowling Alleygations 1-18-21 |  Matthew Weiss ~ Team 1

St. Louis Rotary Bowling League | Alleygations for week 19 (January 18, 2021)

There was a huge smile on Olivette Lanes proprietor and team Klackner, Captain Don Klackner's face when entering the lanes this past Monday night.
MLK day brought in the 23% maximum capacity all day and for most of the weekend as well. Think he earned a couple of well-deserved nickels!

Great to see business really picking up for such a nice guy and his staff! But week 4 of the 3rd Quarter wasn't so cheery for the Klack Team.

Carl "Night Train" Lane single handedly derailed the Klacks with his 179, 224, 149, 552 scratch series which was also the high of the night. His 18 points put his team 1 point out of the top spot in the league. Wow, you talk about going from the Penthouse to the Outhouse. Team Klackner sits comfortably in LAST place after having won the 2nd quarter with still two weeks to roll. Rotary Bowling, in the immortal word of Joaquin Andujar, "youneverknow!"

Kent Steinbrueck President St Louis Rotary 2020-2021
The Four-Way Test of the things we think, say or do
  1. Is it the truth?
  2. Is it fair to all concerned?
  3. Will it build goodwill and better friendships?
  4. Will it be beneficial to all concerned?


" Want to develop a positive outlook? Hang out with positive people. Rotarians know that positivity is positively contagious.” –Robyn T. Braley

Navigating Organizational Transitions | Dale Kreienkamp ~ February 4, 2021

How Long O Lord author Dale K is speaking at STL Rotary on 2/4/21

Organizations are in a constant state of transition, e.g. acquisitions, mergers, divestitures, CEO retirements, downsizing, etc., it’s how they survive and grow. Organizational leaders often miscalculate the impact of transitions on their staff, which increases anxiety and turnover, productivity decreases, and employees will dis-engage. Looking back, they later wonder what happened and why it didn’t work out as planned. Learn about the most frequent mistakes organizations make in transitions, what employees look for and strategies to minimize the negative impacts of change.
Dale Kreienkamp is the President of Thriving Through Transitions, a consultancy focused on helping organizations and individuals successfully navigate difficult transitions and become better through the process. His professional background includes over 40+ years as a Human Resources Executive and Consultant, coaching and guiding leaders. He is a speaker, and the author of How Long, O Lord, How Long? Devotions for the Unemployed and Those Who Love Them
