and Dublin AM Rotary President Ingrid Fields
Greetings, Dublin AM Rotarians!
Gratitude & Celebration
It was a big honor to represent Dublin AM Rotary at our District 6690 Awards evening on November 4th.   We won many awards and certificates for the 2022-2023 year, as you can see by the photos above!  I have never been prouder of an organization than I was that night.  
We can be grateful for Susan West, our President in 2022-2023, for the Executive Officers that planned so much, for the Board that invested considerable time and for each of you who contributed your time, talents and treasure in so many ways all year.  
Congratulations to Wolf Lant who was honored as District 6690 Rotarian of the Year by our Immediate Past District Governor, Price Finley.  Well done Wolf!  We aren’t surprised!
The gauntlet has been tossed; we have much to live up to in the 2023-2024 Rotary year, and I know each of you would not have it any other way.  That is why we are Dublin AM Rotary Club members. 
We can truly appreciate each other in this season of gratitude and thanksgiving.
My personal Best Wishes for your Thanksgiving Holiday!  I hope all your loved ones are near and your hearts joyous.
I look forward to seeing you all at our exciting Holiday Party on December 8th.  Bring guests!
Yours in Rotary service,
Ingrid Fields

Update on Daryl Schorsten from Jeanne Schorsten via Caringbridge

October 18: Welcome all friends, family and loved ones of Daryl Schorsten.   In Spring 2023 Daryl was diagnosed with stage three gastric cancer. Daryl has received care from Ohio Health in Columbus OH and Mayo Clinic in Rochester MN. He has undergone chemotherapy and most recently radiation. In July of 2023 Daryl had a promising scan at Mayo Clinic that pointed to a positive possibility for surgery removal of the tumor in the fall. He returned to Columbus to receive more chemotherapy before that surgery. In October 2023, Daryl returned to Mayo for his pre-surgery scans. Unfortunately, the scans came back with substantial growth of the existing gastric tumor as well as a mass development in the liver, leading to a stage four diagnosis. 

As we all know, Daryl Schorsten is a man full of love, joy and faith. In the journal on CaringBridge Jeanne said:  "We ask you to join us in prayer and encouragement for a radical healing of Daryl. We have been blown away with the incredible care the team at Mayo has provided. He is in for a fight, we know he is one tough cookie and believe in his strength. Daryl has requested that his loved ones would share their favorite memory together, their most beloved part of Daryl and any words of encouragement they have for him. We are creating this to pour words of love and hope into Daryl but also provide updates as we receive them. We love you and thank you for your support.

October 23: After the final radiation treatment at Mayo Clinic to stop the bleeding in Daryl’s stomach, Daryl and Jeanne returned to Ohio.  She said:  "Our task now is to decide upon quality of life and care choices.  All of you are so very dear to us and we are thankful for each and every one of you.  Please continue with your prayers and believe in miracles.  Over the next several months, we would love to spend time with each of you.  As always, feel free to send any positive stories and laughter with us. is a great place to send anything that you would love to share.  We are going to try and spend quality time with one another away with peaceful quiet time.   With the holidays coming up, both of us would love to spend time with each of you to laugh and enjoy our friendship.  Watch on CaringBridge for dates and details.  Thank you so very much and please continue with the prayers"

Holiday Adopt A Family/Community Service
It is time to make a big difference to the 22 individuals and families that we will adopt from Salvation Army and Syntero this Holiday Season. Their stories are staggering but show why they need our help. The shoppers are ready to go, shopping for all of their needs and wants, but first we need your help to finance this.
We will start passing the basket on November17th at our meeting. We will then do it again at our meetings on Dec 1 and December 8 and finally at our Holiday party. The goal is to collect $3000. If you wish to write a check, please make it payable to Dublin AM Rotary Foundation. It is a charitable contribution.  We will also be giving each family a gift card to pay for their holiday dinner.  Thanks in advance for your help!!

Julie Rinaldi plans to present a check to Ryan Miller for $2,000 as Dublin AM Rotary's donation to The 2nd and 7 Literacy Program at the November 10th meeting. Julie is also working on a donation of $2000 with the Dublin Education Foundation on a jointly funded Literacy project. 
Steve Burigana will be kicking off the 2024 scholarship project - Dublin AM Rotary will be making awards to Dublin Schools Seniors totaling $9000.  Contact Steve if you would like to help with this effort.
Dublin AM Rotary will be supporting the Dublin Robotics Boosters regional FIRST Lego League competition in January.  We provide a $1000 donation as well as volunteering as judges.
Meals on Wheels:
A knock at the door might not seem like a big deal to many of us. But, to a home-bound senior, it could signal the arrival of the only person they might see all day or all week long. It brings hope. It brings health. It brings the nutrition and care that will completely make their day. A knock from Meals on Wheels can even save lives.
We are asking for your help in delivering Meals on Wheels to seniors in the Dublin community. It only takes an hour once a week but it makes a huge difference to the senior that you are delivering much-needed food to.  Please click on the attached SignUp Genius link to see how you can help:
Thank you!!

Sergeant-at-Arms Needed:
Seeking a few good members to serve the club as Sergeant-at-Arms volunteers.  The duties are fairly straightforward and involve limited added time on scheduled meeting days.  
Scheduled Sergeants arrive at 7 am on meeting days to set up the meeting equipment (flags, etc), sell raffle tickets before the meeting, introduce visiting Rotarians and guests, conduct raffle drawings, and (of course) levy any fines members may have “earned.”  It is supreme power opportunity for sure. They spend about 15 minutes in post meeting duties putting away meeting items.  With sufficient volunteers the scheduled duty would only occur once every two months.
If you have any questions, and would like to know more or sign up, please contact Dave Williamson.
