Theme for the month of June 2024
Rotary Fellowships
 
Quote of the Month 
     
Blessed is the Rotarian who sits at a different table every week
for he shall make many friends.
When a tree stops growing - it is ready to die
...A Rotary club is like that: it is moving ahead only when it is growing.
When the growing ends, the knife and fork club begin.
Fellowship is the cornerstone of Rotary...the means by which Rotary service has become a vital force for improving the lives of people in our own communities and around the world.
We can make many friends through Rotary. Rotary began out of fellowship. Service came afterwards - as a natural outgrowth.
Fellowship is the glue that holds Rotary together.

Isabel Munzberg
Here is a photo of Isabel with her Visionary Leader Award from ZONTA
that she received on Thursday, 13th June 2024.
Congratulations Isabel, one of our students from the RCBV Foundation who was the social media guru for us during the 2023 Airshow. We nominated her for the Zonta Award. Sent in by Rotarian Keith Millington. 
It was the Zonta changeover night when they elected a new president
and board, with a presentation to seven women who had achieved
exceptionally high standards in community service.
 
Our final Exchange Student
Philip Sederstrom.
Hi Robert, how nice to hear from you!.
I'm so sorry that my answer to your message is so delayed!
The dog's name is Saba, she is an Irish wolfhound puppy that moved in with me and my fiancé 13 weeks ago. She is such a character, sleeps approximately 75% of the day, grows 2-3 centimeters a week and loves to stroll the woods with me in the area where I live.
As for me, I've just finished my master thesis in psychology which I did as part of a pilot study about maladaptive anger inhibition. It received good critique, and I ended up with the highest possible grade for it. I've been offered to help out with writing an article on the matter which is exciting so that is what I'm doing now in my spare time. Now when I've finished my psychologist education, I need to work a year under supervision in order to receive my psychologist license. However, the economy in Sweden is not that great right now so a lot of workplaces are saving money by not hiring newly examined psychology students, so here I am writing articles about treatments for anger related emotional inertia in my spare time hoping it will open up an opportunity for me to get a job in the near future. I've even applied for a couple of PhD student posts. I hope I don't need to be without a psychology themed job for long, eventually there will be an opening for me somewhere I'm sure of it!
Other than that, I'm happy that I've finally finished my education and that I no longer have to commute 5 hours daily between Uppsala and Örebro, now I'll have more time to spend with my fiancé Gennet and our dog Saba.
It has been so nice of you to send me the bulletins from your meetings, I love keeping myself updated of the news and undertakings of the club. Once again, thank you for reaching out to me, and my apologies for being so late with my answer!
All the best!
//Philip

Philip was our final Youth Exchange student. 
 
 
Note from the Bulletin Editor.
I will have completed four years in this role at the end of the month. So far as I know I will remain editor for the next twelve months with Rotarian Steve Ahrens as our President. I thank the people who have sent in stories and photos, mainly John Semmler, Peter Thomas, Keith Millington and Prue Maitland. I am always on the lookout for articles of any kind. Marie Rothe has sent in many 
jokes and funnies and some have found their way into the bulletin.
No matter what it is, if it is suitable, in it goes. See you all at the changeover of Presidents which no doubt will be a very happy occasion.
