There Were Princesses Everywhere!

All the kids were excited to have Santa visit Cambridge Child Development Center on December 20th.  In addition to princesses, Santa brought Thomas the Train toys, Spiderman, Legos, Barbie toys, stuffed animals, baby dolls, and many other wonderful toys that brought much happiness to each child.  Santa’s helpers were Sasha Dunn, Nancy Glenfield, Beri Kasper, Lee Koellermeier, Kathy Lafferty, Jeanette Lohmann Poulsen (also Santa’s Elf), Eric Maldonado, Erin McGregor, Patricia Ramirez, Brigitte Ross, Karen Valles, and LoAnn Winkler.

Many thanks go to Travis Credit Union who helped make this day possible.  In addition the Club would like to thank, again the many donors who helped in the past year, All Bay Cities Towing, B & D Towing/Pro Tow, Concord Dental Implants & Periodontics, Concord Feed, Lehmers of Concord, Mt. Diablo Resource Recovery, the best Bowlers anywhere, and the hungry Pancake Breakfast supporters.  Thanks, also to Karen Valles and LoAnn Winkler for the great photos.

 

Introducing our newest Family Member

Per, Jeanette, Beri, Concord Club president Dave, and our president Kathy.

Jeanette Lohmann Poulsen was inducted by past president Beri Kasper at our joint meeting with the Concord Club on 9/8/17. Jeanette, her husband Per, and her 2 boys, Thor 3 ½ years old and Storm 16 months old moved to the states in January of 2015. They moved to Concord in June of this year.

Prior to moving to the States Jeanette was a process supporter helping people diagnosed with Hemophilia. She is passionate about helping people in many ways…either directly or indirectly.

She has a Bachelors in Global Business Engineering and a Masters in Management/Sustainable business leadership. She studied in Copenhagen, as well as Germany, and Sweden.

Jeanette was a member of the Copenhagen Morning Rotary Club where she loved participating in projects, being social, and as a board member…influencing the direction of the club.

A few of her favorite things are Pistachio ice cream, all kinds of foods, reading, travel, family time, shopping, and giving her sons lots of experiences including gardening and traveling.

Jeanette is sponsored by Lee Koellermeier. Welcome, Jeanette. We look forward to getting to know you and your family better!

Enjoy Your Best Breakfast of the Year…

When?  July 4th from 8 am to 11 am (or when all the pancakes are gone)

Where?  Todos Santos Park in Concord

What?  Pancakes, sausage, and coffee or juice

Why will this be your most enjoyable breakfast of the year?  Well, not only is the cost only $5.00, and the proceeds benefit the Concord-Diablo Rotary Charitable Fund, which in turn benefits the community of Concord, BUT you don’t have to cook it!  Plus attendees will get to see the Concord parade for free.  Please ask a member of the Concord-Diablo Rotary for tickets.  Bring the whole family.
