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…

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.

A 516 Pound Weekend!

On Saturday 316 lbs of oranges, lemons, and grapefruit were gleaned by the Picker Squadron, Edi Birsan, Nancy Glenfield, Beri Kasper, Brigitte Ross, Lee Koellermeier, Kathy Lafferty, and first time picker Wendee Williamson. This fruit was delivered to the Food Bank. Thanks to Carol Toms for making the trees available.

Sunday was another great day of gleaning.  Check out this huge lemon tree with lemons as big as soft balls.  We got about 200 lbs that are headed to Monument Crisis Center on Monday.  Not only was this the first gleaning for Julia Neely but she led the team which included Beri Kasper and Kathy Lafferty.

Way to go, everyone!
