Noon Meeting News – January 9, 2018 – Lisa Hanson – Culture Works

Phather Phil’s Prayer

Heavenly Father if we were to break down are lives into 18 segments that would make , on average, a little over 4 years per segment . Kinda like playing golf. For many like me, that means we’ve been playing the 19th hole for the last 20 years! Have we been doing everything right or have You giving us the extra time to get it right? Where ever we stand in this game called life let us play the game as if it was the 18th hole. Don’t let us quit just before the finish line. May our efforts fulfill Your purpose in us for
Your glory and honor. Amen!

Additional 2017 Christian D. Larson Award for Pat Behn

Bob Burkman and Nancy Lehren announced that Pat Behn is awarded the 2017 Christian D. Larson Award. Pat Behn joins fellow 2017 recipients Myron Rheaume and Mary Madden. The Christian D. Larson award is a lifetime achievement recognition given to a person who has exemplified outstanding service in his/her Optimist club. Pat Behn has easily earned this award from all her generous service for our club. She would have received the award in December with Myron and Mary, but Pat was not able to make it to the 2017 holiday party.

Today’s Speaker

Shane Wilken introduced today’s speaker Lisa Hanson from Culture Works. Culture works was formed by combining 3 organizations in 1994, the oldest of which started over 40 years ago. “Art belongs to the community”, she explained. The arts, are not just for enjoyment, but has a huge economic impact on the Dayton area. In our area the yearly economic activity generated is over 214 million and affects the income of over 8000 people in the arts. Art opportunities in the Dayton region are large.  The organization represents an 8 county area. They offer numerous college scholarships. There were 127 applications in 2017 up from 42, but she says she needs our help to get the word out. They have a current focus on helping young individual artists to achieve their dreams while still being located in the Dayton area instead of moving to culture “hotspots” such as Nashville. They give away several grants to numerous arts related organizations such as Dayton Arts Institute and WDPR radio. They give the money as unattached funds that can be used for general operating expenses which is very helpful so organizations can use the money as they need. Businesses can help support the arts by setting up workplace giving programs easily through payroll deductions. If you would like to give and save at the same time you can purchase an annual “Passport to the Arts” for $85 which gives you several options to “BOGO”, buy one ticket get one ticket free and discounts at several restaurants.

Additional detailed information available at http://cultureworks.org/.

For one week starting Jan 16, 2018 there are lots of ways to “Eat.Drink.Arts!”, http://cultureworks.org/eatdrinkarts/

Noon Meeting News – January 2, 2018 – Judge Erik Blaine

Phather Phil’s Prayer

Heavenly Father it’s a brand new year. Help us make it another year to remember. As Optimist we are blessed with the perfect game plan. We recite it every week – The Optimist Creed. The thoughts behind the words are beautiful, but if not taken to heart, remain just words. Grant us the commitment to live our lives according to the precepts of our Creed and realize that out there we could be the only bible someone reads. Remove our unfounded prejudices and let us walk thru the coming year to the beat of a better drummer. With Your help Lord we can get er done. Amen!

Today’s Speaker

The speaker today was the honorable Judge Erik Blaine. He is a part of a group of volunteer lawyers that provides “Wills for Heroes” and “Wills for Veterans”. Members of both of these groups often do not have the means to provide proper estate planning for their families. Since his involvement which began in 2008, over 1250 first responders (including police, firefighters, EMTs) and veterans have been helped. Additionally, he puts on programs at schools for 5th-12th graders to help them to understand the issues surrounding cyber-bullying and sexting. He uses and asks others involved in the law to use optimism in their approach to how the law is interpreted and applied. An example would be a first time offender of cyber bullying not always getting criminally convicted, but instead getting help. Judge Blaine also discussed the opioid crisis. He wants us all to make sure we openly discuss the issue to remove stigma and to guide those who need help towards that help. All of the programs he helps with need our help in spreading the word that they exist. He also reminds us that jury duty is one of the most important civic duties in which we can participate.

Noon Meeting News – December 5, 2017 – Ray Szymanski – Hangar 18

Phather Phil’s Prayer

Heavenly Father, I’m sure you remember when we talked to you as a kid and we would pray ” Now I lay me down to sleep -” Now grown with no one prompting us to pray or not knowing what to say we go to sleep without a
word. Falling back on a simple memorized prayer can jump start our conversations with You. Many children have learned this prayer and continue it today.
In peace O Lord I close my eyes.
In peace again I hope to rise.
Be with those I love the best.
As I take my nightly rest.
Led me in Your holy way.
Make me better everyday. Amen!
It’s always good to have a nightly conversation with You Lord, even if it’s with a memorized prayer. Amen!

Heavenly Father, some of us are like tea bags , we have to be put in hot water to see how strong we are. So thank You for friends and companions who offer a hand when we are in need. Comfort when we are sad and words of encouragement when we mess up. As Optimist we are blessed with such friends. Since we have no gold to give and love must make amends. Please ,Lord makes us worthy of our friends. Amen!

He joined the Marine Corp reserves after high school. In Dec 2002 his unit was activated to Kuwait, his first tour of duty. On his second tour he suffered severe injuries but considers himself lucky to be alive. On his third tour he was assigned to a mortuary affairs unit where he initiated starching and ironing the flag on each coffin. This, he believes, shows proper respect for the deceased soldier. In order to conquer his demons upon coming home he has written a book. Sgt. Bussler received a standing ovation.

Phather Phil’s Prayer

Heavenly Father you know what gets us into trouble. It’s what we know for sure that just ain’t so! We are a stiff necked people at times. We are stuck in concrete on what we believe is gospel. We have all lived with mountaintop and valley experiences and I’m convinced we have learned more in the valleys cause that’s where the fertilizers is. Let us learn from our valley experiences so we can change our attitude and led a better life and be open to You wisdom. Make our minds like a parachute Lord, they need to be open before it will do us any good. Amen!

Debe Dockins introduced our speaker from Centerville Washington Township Library, Scott Royal. Scott talked mostly about “Haunted Ohio”, saying that ghost interest is pervasive in our society with books, movies and TV shows on the subject. There are 3 types of sightings, 1 is intelligent where the ghost tries to communicate with the living, 2 is residual where an action by the ghost is repeated over and over, 3 is poltergeist where the ghost attaches to a family member, often a child. Scott talked of ghost phenomena at Victory theater, Patterson homestead, the downtown Courthouse, Air Force museum, Amber Rose restaurant and Sinclair college. Happy Halloween.

Noon Meeting News – October 24, 2017 – Lela Klein – Gem City Market Project

Phather Phil’s Prayer

Heavenly Father for most of our adult life our minds are drawn to the noise of life. On a beautiful day we rarely start the day with a “Thank you Lord.” The news tells us all the bad things that have happened while we slept.

Today’s Speaker

Debe Dockins introduced our speaker, Lela Klein,  a Harvard Law school grad and executive director of the Greater Dayton Union Cooperative Initiative. Lela spoke to us about the proposed Gem City market and the food crisis that exists in the West Dayton community. Currently funds are being raised as the 15,000 sq ft market will cost about $4 million to build. Shares are being sold at $100 each and the goal is to have the market employee and community owned.  Over 5,300 children live in the area that Gem City market will serve. Nutritional and cooking classes will be offered and the hope is that the market will become a community gathering place.
