2020 Pet Walk - IS VIRTUAL!!!

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, our club will be unable to hold our 17th Annual Pet Walk, our flagship fundraiser, IN PERSON and will be transitioning it to a VIRTUAL WALK.  This fundraiser normally raises $8,000-$10,000 and while we understand we will likely not be able to meet this goal, we wanted to contribute to our community in some way. 
As in the past, this fundraiser benefits the Blackstone Valley Municipal Animal Shelter as well as several other Rotary charities.  The BVM Animal Shelter remains in need of donations to keep their doors open and help those animals in need within the Cumberland and Lincoln communities.

50 / 50 Story

Posted by Timothy Draper on Dec 01, 2013

ImageIn a not so unprecedented chain of events the 50/50 raffle was finally claimed this week at our meeting. For those who missed it allow me to summarize. Attendance was light (not unexpected) after a fun Club Christmas Party the evening before. Since our Sergeant-At-Arms was home developing the many pictures he took from the night before, The President took matters into his own hands and anointed himself raffle / fine master for the day. The first person to get a ticket for the 50/50 was the loveable Walter Scott who dug deep into his wallet and pulled out 5 crisp new singles and bought 5 tickets. The rest of the club was in shock but clever Walter saw that there were few Rotarians in the room and seized the opportunity to stack the game in his favor.

The time came to pull out a number and the President once again ignored the club and drew out the winning ticket himself. As he was doing so, Past President "Too Nice Bob" cried out "pick my ticket 951" As the president gazed down at the red ticket in his hand, to his amazement, he called out the last three numbers on the ticket "951" Bob had successfully willed his ticket out of the bucket. The members were in amazement at Bob's act of prestidigitation, except one member, Walter. The good Doctor sat forlorn at his little corner of the table realizing his strategy had failed miserably and he was out 4 bucks. Well Bob, in an act of great compassion invited Walter to pick the card out of the deck for him and here is what happened next:

The cards were all spread on the table with care, in hopes that the 7 was actually in there. Walter then reached for the cards on the table, while we all watched closely to see if he was able. Then what to our wondering eyes should appear but the 7 of hearts in Walters hand and on his cheek a small tear. Bob jumped from the table and gave Walter a shout, for choosing the 7 and pulling it out.

Then I heard Bob exclaim as he returned to his spot, Walter you did it my friend, let’s just split the pot!

And so my good friends that’s the whole story, how Walter and good Bob achieved Rotary Glory!!

Whats new at the RI DMV

Posted by Timothy Draper on Dec 01, 2013
ImageThe Cumberland Lincoln Club was honored with a visit from the Rhode Island Registrar of Motor Vehicles & past member of the club, Tony Silva.  Tony brought his Communications director Deb Rich and spoke at length about what is happening at the DMV.  What was striking for many members is that the DMV is more than Licenses and registrations.  They are responsible for School Bus safety, administering all driving tests and were responsible for more arrests than teh town of Foster.  Tony promises that while everyone in the state will have to make at least one visit to the DMV at least once in their lives, the experience will be significantly better than what you might remember in the past.  PS Thursday at 3:00 is the best time to visit the DMV in Cranston.
