Rich Boccia accepts a check for $10,000 from Judy Bornfeld and Karen Curry of the Mammoth Hospital Auxiliary who donated the proceeds from their Hurricane Relief Fundraiser. This fundraiser was comprised of 2 days sales at the Castoff thrift store and the Auxiliary then matched those monies. The Auxiliary chose our Rotary club to forward these funds to the local Rotary clubs in Texas, Florida and Puerto Rico to distribute them to those people most in need who were devastated by the hurricanes.

Each spring Rotary clubs around the world invite young musicians to participate in a series of competitions that begin in their local clubs and progress to a national event. These instrumental music contests were created to give young people opportunities to develop and showcase their exceptional musical talents. 
On March 29, the Rotary Club of Mammoth Lakes hosted its club-level competition, which featured four talented young musicians. Winner Ari Schuldt played Rachmaninoff’s Prelude in G Minor on the piano, while second place finisher Guy LaBorde played an original composition on the bass guitar. Melanie Moyer, who took third, played Gabriel-Marie’s La Cinquantaine on the violin, and Cardiff Smith played Haydn’s Surprise Symphony Variations on the trumpet. 
All four competitors received prizes, and Ari Schuldt advanced to the next level of competition. The audience and judges were inspired and entertained by the music these young people created. Congratulations to all!

Good afternoon Rotarians and Friends,
I am very excited to announce the two newest Rotary scholarship recipients.

The first award was presented to a member of MLHS Interact Club. This award recognizes a graduating student who has been involved in the Rotary Interact Club while exhibiting high standards in leadership and community service, along with a strong academic performance.

Alexis Brode is our Interact scholarship awardee. Alexis has been an active member of Interact by participating in school and community (local and international) service projects during high school. She has helped raise funds for people in need. She exhibits strong leadership skills and is a pleasant young lady with great potential. Alexis lives the true spirit of Rotary.

The second award was designed to compliment the Mammoth Lakes Foundation Scholarships for MLHS students continuing to Cerro Coso Community College. Our scholarship provides an award to a student attending Cerro Coso with plans to continue onto a four year college. The award will FULLY pay tuition for the final two years of the degree at any Cal State or UC campus, or UNR.

Calvin Forsythe is our first recipient of this award. He has repeatedly given back to our community through volunteering to numerous sport and festival events, and at our local hospital. He has helped raise funds for various community service organizations. Calvin has an outstanding academic and athletic track record. He has been a role model to younger athletes. Calvin is a local kid with a local heart. We will likely see him back in our community after completing his degree. We can count of him to continue to give back in the true spirit of Rotary.

Congratulations to both of our awardees. And, a big thank you to our committee members and membership for their role in making these awards happen. We should feel very proud of these accomplishments.

The 2016 Pamper Pedal is an all-ladies ride hosted by the men of Eastside Velo. The ride started on May 7, 2016 at the Elks Park in Bishop and concluded 36 scenic miles later back at the Park. This was the 10th anniversary of this ride, and the Pamper Pedal is celebrating by honoring the first year's event with the theme "Back to the Bedroom." 
 
Mammoth Lakes Rotary Club supported the event by providing refreshments at the Round Valley checkpoint. Helping out are Craig Schmidt, Dennis Brown, Gary Sill, Jim Clark and Rich Boccia (the photographer).

The  April 9th house build in Tecate was great.  Our lead builders, Tom and Nancy, along with Pete and Mike kept us on track.  We built a house with a bathroom and were finished by 4 pm.  The weather was cool and cloudy, perfect conditions, and it didn't start raining until after we crossed back over the border into California.  Some of us enjoyed a Tecate Beer in the hotel parking lot afterwards, and almost everyone attended the festive dinner at Por Favor Mexican restaurant afterwards.  There were no problems with the project and everyone but Tom Lake from South Pasadena had their passports crossing the border.  I understand he groveled and humbly apologized for being dumb when confronted by the immigration officer at the border and they took pity on him and let him back into the country. 
 
Kathy Watson from South Pasadena took over 900 photos and will put together a program and send it to both clubs. 
 
Thanks to everyone who participated in making this joint Mammoth Lakes-South Pasadena project a success.  A special thanks to Johanna Bishop from Bishop for once again leading the Bishop Interact contingent.  Finally, a huge thank you to Pat Hayes, ably assisted by Cynthia, for putting all of this together.

I have reserved a room at the Best Western Plus La Mesa, (619) 466-0200 or online at bestwestern.com. They have a limited number of rooms, first come first served. This location is pretty good, however you may stay anywhere you wish.

Mammoth Lakes Noon Rotary recognized Sabrina Clevenger as Academic Student of the Month for October for Science.  Her teacher, Cheryl Hart said she is an outstanding student that has gone above and beyond basic requirements to take the most challenging classes offered at MHS.  In her 4 years at MHS she has bee one of the top students in all of her honors and AP classes. One of Sabrina's characteristics that stand out most is her drive to understand a problem or concept rather than just getting the right answer.  On a personal level, Sabrina is enthusiastic, curious, mature, giving, and helpful to staff and students.  She is highly regarded by her peers and our teaching staff.

In 2010 the MAMMOTH HIGH SCHOOL Interact decided to create a picnic area on the island in front of the school.  Since the students would sit on the large rocks, they thought it would be a great place for a patio.  The first project was putting in area of pavers.  Joanne & Byng Hunt presented the school with a beautiful bench built by Brian Jones.  The next year they added to the project with steps and a walk way.  Last year they purchased a picnic table.  This year started off with artificial grass placed next to the patio.  Interact students and Rotarians worked together to make this such a special project.  Each year the Interact Club wants to continue to improve the patio project.

The RYLA (Rotary Youth Leadership Awards) camp was held this year in Portola, Ca. at the Grizzly Bear Camp.  Since the two Mammoth Lakes Rotary Clubs have joined Rotary District 5190, we were able to attend the 5 day conference.  Between the Noon Rotary (2 students), Sunrise Rotary (1 student) and the Interact Club (1 student) we were able to sponsor 4 juniors from Mammoth High School.  Joanne Hunt also attended as a counselor representing our club.

Guest speakers were brought in each day to work on self enlightenment and develop leadership skills.  We also participated in the Ropes course which included group activities to develop trust and teamwork on low level activities.  Then we advanced to the high wire, Alpine Tower and Zip line on the forth day.  Even Joanne participated in the advance activities.

Evening fun included Mental Olympics, a Candle light ceremony and Square Dancing.  It was exciting to see the students learn how to square dance.  The final night was regular dancing and signing autographs.
