Take a look at this beautiful video showing some of the moments caught with photographs during President Lisa Lorenz’s year as President of the Niles Rotary Club (July 1, 2015 to June 30, 2016). She is a wonderful President, always warm, affectionate and ready to give a great hug. She has done a wonderful job!

President Lisa’s Demotion Dinner
Last Saturday night, June 25, 2016 President Lisa Lorenz was officially given the boot. Elvis showed up to do it in style as President Lisa arrived in a stretch limousine with none other than our own Bubba (not Gump) driving.
Greeted by throngs of Rotarians and Rotary friends in boa’s with fans in hand (things get hot when you stand up front right President Lisa?) to kick off the party. Daren & Sandra Young entertained and hosted an amazing dinner and much fun was had. President Lisa had a personal performance by none other than Elvis!
Wendy was spotted with a second Elvis at the sign in table – can’t tell who the real Elvis was! By the way, where the heck was Melissa DiMatteo anyhow and why is Elvis wearing her badge? Was she kidnapped?
Angus made a bit of a stiff appearance, but had his dry comedy as always and did get some laughs. We were disappointed he wasn’t in his church girl’s skirt (Scottish Kilt), but we’re sure there will be more opportunities for that. Mark Crutcher did ‘the reading’ as is customarily prepared by Dick McKay in the demotion ceremony itself – thank you Mark. Many were asking where you get your hair done (contact Mark for info). A well deserved and standing ovation was given to our beautiful Tammi Souza as President Lisa presented her the award of “Rotarian of the Year.”
The weather was warm and perfect for a gorgeous sunset from the Milpitas hills. Past President Steve made sure there was a large commercial sized fan on site for President Lisa when she stood to address her followers – she did say that it was a bittersweet moment in that at this point, she really will miss being Prez! Great job President Lisa – you are warm and wonderful – you’ve done an amazing job!
Niles Rotary Oakland A’s Day
There were good times that were had when the Niles Rotary Club showed up to the A’s game on May 22, 2016. We’ll post a couple photos here along with a couple “misdeeds” that took place. It was rumoured that Oly broke through some barriers in order to get to the BBQ food. Wow Oly, I guess your were hungry or what? Then again, when Daren’s at the BBQ, we all know what a treat it really is!
On a more serious note, our own die hard fan Jeff Falk may get this annual event named after himself. It seems that some have decided this was the ‘First Annual Jeff Falk Day at the A’s’. You have some of your own fans there Jeff!
All in all, we had a great showing with 42 people supporting the Oakland A’s. We won’t say what the final score was, but it was a close one folks! Til’ next year!
