Presidential Telegram - Kent Steinbrueck ~ August 20, 2020

Kent Steinbrueck President St Louis Rotary 2020-2021

A quote of inspiration

“Ability is what you're capable of doing. Motivation determines what you do. Attitude determines how well you do it.” ~ Lou Holtz

Each week I will highlight something about Rotary that all Rotarians should know or be aware of.

As an international organization, Rotary offers each member unique opportunities and responsibilities. Although each Rotarian has first responsibility to uphold the obligations of citizenship of his or her own country, membership in Rotary enables Rotarians to take a somewhat different view of international affairs. In the early 1950s a Rotary philosophy was adopted to describe how a Rotarian may think on a global basis. Here is what it said:
"A world-minded Rotarian:
• looks beyond national patriotism and considers himself as sharing responsibility for the advancement of international understanding, goodwill and peace;
• resists any tendency to act in terms of national or racial superiority;
• seeks and develops common grounds for agreement with peoples of other lands;

Golf Alleygations August 12, 2020



August 12, 2020

The weather in most of the St. Louis area gave us heavy downpours with flooding in many areas. I had a couple Rotarian golfers texting me on the status of the outing scheduled for 1:30 at the beautiful Forest Hills Country Club. Since our league has had the last 3 golf outings shortened by rain, I am sure everyone assumed this would be the same. They forget that Terry Werner was the organizer of our first 4 outings and everyone knows the track record Terry has with the rain.

NOT THIS TIME. As I was heading west on 44 toward West County, I noticed blue skies in the distance. As soon as I hit 270 heading toward 40/64 the sun was out and there was barely a hint of cloudiness. OH MY!!! I remembered telling someone a week before that I guaranteed NO RAIN for the Forest Hills outing. Was my promise going to come true? Apparently, they had no rain in Chesterfield that day and the weather for golf was almost perfect.

Club 11 Charity Golf Tournament

Saint Louis Rotary Golf Tournament Save the Date: 9-2-20
All Club 11 Rotarians, your help is needed. The Rotary Club of St Louis will host our Charity Golf Tournament on September 2, 2020 at the Probstein Golf Course in Forest Park. This is our main fundraiser that has raised over $400,000 over the last 10+ years for local charities and nonprofit groups. Most of the funds used for our Community Service Grants come from this event.

So, how can you help. First, if you are a golfer, or know someone who is, please sign up to play. We will play a 4-man scramble, with the first and second place teams in two flights winning prizes. Since we are still affected by the Covid 19 pandemic, registration and dining will be outside under the pavilion. There will be no access to the Club House except for the Pro Shop. Masks will be required during registration.

We can also use your help as a volunteer the day of the event.
