Meeting on 07/06/2017
Jack Durnbaugh, principal at Centerville High School, and Brad Huffman greeted this day at The Clubhouse at Yankee Trace, where the club meets regularly at noon. Jack (L) and Brad (R) are seen greeting club member Arnie Biondo. They are standing in the back hall, just outside the pro shop and the smaller meeting room that faces the golf course.
Here the greeters are welcoming club member Adam Manning and his guest Devra Times, of Columbus, in management training at Carrabas, where Adam is the manager. 
The Centerville Rotary Club met at The Club House at Yankee Trace at noon. Past President Ron Hollenbeck led the Pledge of Allegiance, PDG Harvey Smith led the prayer, and God Bless America was sung with great vigor.
Today's guests included: 
Dottie Overly, wife of club member Don Overly; Rick Hood of Niles-Freemont, California; David Edwards of Springboro, a member of the Franklin Rotary; Devra Times (seen above being greeted), a guest of member Adam Manning; and our guest speaker Brent Ullery, head football coach at CHS.
Dottie Overly is always smiling and a delight to talk with and get to know.
Guest Rick Hood asked club member Kim Senft-Paras to move into the picture, and he almost ended out of it. Polite guest and always welcome.
David Edwards owns Edwards Furniture in Springboro and was making up for a missed meeting at the Franklin Rotary. Welcome David. I asked him what he does for a living, but if I had looked at his shirt I would have known. 
Our guest speaker Brent Ullery is pictured below.
Helping set up for the meeting over the past several weeks has been member Chuck King, seen here putting the club member badges out and the sign-in papers next to them.
And club member Harvey Smith just looked especially dapper this day.
Before the announcements, a message from Saloni, our Indian youth exchange student, now back in India. She sends greetings to all the club members and is now on our Friends list to receive news about the club, which she said should keep her connected. As you know she is very appreciative of the club's support during her stay and left a hand-written thank-you note to each and every member. See Ron Hollenbeck if you haven't gotten yours yet.
Past-president Ron Hollenbeck said Peachy Metzner, our newly installed president, could not make today's meeting because his new granddaughter was born yesterday. Ron stepped in to do the honors this day.
Ron said everyone on the fire truck driven by Lee Hieronymus at the Americana Festival had a ball. He said the group included Lee and John Callander, Ron himself, and Arnie Biondo and his daughter Emily, and Brad Huffman and his two daughters.
Ron reminded everyone that we will be meeting at GraceWorks for the Aug.17 meeting, as Yankee Trace is holding a big event that day and our meeting room will not be available. 
Ron said our new member Katie Neubert will be installed at our next meeting.
Ron said our new assistant district governor Don E. Schweitzer, who replaces Greg Birkemeyer, will be at our next meeting. 
Ron then presented Erich Eggers, our Sgt.-at-Arms, and Mark Balsan, our club secretary, with thank-you presents for their support and service while he was club president. Ron made the beautiful pens by shaping exotic woods. Erich and Mark were absent at the last meeting where other club board members received a similar gift. 
Ron said a check will be presented next week for the Happy Bucks collected for the Victory Project. 
HAPPY BUCKS: Sgt.-at-Arms Erich Eggers collected Happy Bucks for Operation Warm, Each $20 donation buys a new children's winter coat distributed by Hannah's Treasure Chest in partnership with local social agencies.
Lee Hieronymus is shown below with a Happy Buck for having "Dad" help him with the old fire truck when it gave out at the end of the Americana Parade. They had a problem with some burning wires, he said, and they had to get chains and a trailer to tow the truck away. He called club member John Callander, seen in the second picture below, "Dad," for all his help.
A number of members also gave $20 for a coat for Operation Warm. Dale Berry, Frank Perez and Jeff Senney were among them. Jeff said he had been at Put-in-Bay, and played golf a number of times and saw his grandbaby in Cleveland. 
Joyce Young said she was Happy for the work done on Americana.
Adam Manning gave for two-fourths a coat and Jim Harris gave for half a coat and there was mention of 21 rides taken at Disneyland a 21-year-old?...couldn't quite get all of it..
John Callander said he had a birthday last week and Dick Hoback said he'd be spending 17 days in Europe with the Sister City group from Centerville, going to Bad Zwischenahn in Germany, Berlin, Austria, and Prague. Erich Eggers gave $20 for a coat, and said he'd be going west to Jackson Hole and Yellowstone for 17 days, and Dick told him to be sure and see Hoback Mountain when there.
Carol Kennard gave a Happy $5 for the news about Luke Kennard and the NBA draft, with him being the first round, 12th pick and going to the Detroit Pistons. He is Carol Kennard's husband's first cousin twice removed. 
Other $20 coat Happy Bucks givers included Judy Budi, Kim Senft-Paras, and Rick Hood, our guest from California. Arnie Biondo gave, and John Beals, who will also be going on the Sister City trip, also mentioned that Sally, his wife, had a birthday. Dan Johnson gave for our guest speaker, hoping he might learn some secret moves that the Elks might make during the season.
Jack Durnbaugh, CHS principal, also gave for our guest speaker. Ron Hollenbeck gave $20 for a coat and for riding on Hieronymus's fire truck. 
Don Stewart gave for his 31st wedding anniversary and to brag on his daughter Mallory who scored high on the AP American History test, which he said may save him some money in the future if she gets college credit for that. Sorry if I missed any more of the coat people. 
Today's Speaker: Brent Ullery, Head football coach at Centerville High School.
Brent was introduced by Centerville High School Principal Jack Durnbaugh, seen below, and above in the Bulletin, as one of our greeters.
Jack said Brent graduated from Centerville High School where he was a four-year varsity letter winner for the Elks from 1999-2002. He was a 5-year walk-on, one-year letter winner wide receiver for the Ohio State University football team that included three Big Ten championships, three bowl wins and two national championship appearances.
Jack said Brent taught math and coached football at Dublin Coffman in Columbus for five years before joining the teaching and coaching staff at Centerville in 2014. He served as wide receiver coach from 2014-2016 before accepting the head coaching job in April, 2017.
Ullery, his wife Sahar, and their son Beckett live in Centerville, Jack said. 
Brent gave credit for the many mentors he had while growing up and said he hopes to be a Bob Gregg coach. Having played football under Bob Gregg at CHS, Gregg became his role model and created a father-son relationship. He also gave credit to football coach Jim Tressel at OSU and to a Dublin quarterback receiver. 
Brent said his wife graduated from CHS in 2006, though they didn't meet at CHS. They met in Columbus while at OSU and they now have a son who isn't quite three months old. He said he was lucky this Spring, as in two weeks time he got a son, a job, and finished his master's degree.
He showed a description of the culture he hopes to foster with his football program. 
 Brent said he hopes to use the militaristic culture as an example in the game of football. By going through hard work together he believes the players can form a bond. If it's tough every day and you have your buddies around you, you will push to get better, he said. High expectations will get the players to push to continually get better, he said. He said he doesn't want to see the coaches or players getting complacent. Physical toughness is developed by pushing to higher levels and demands. Making boys into men and boys into fathers that people can look up to is one of his goals, he said. He said he does not believe in winning at all costs, but that if you build people to be mentally and physically tough they will become great representatives. He tells parents that decisions that are made will be made in the best interest "of your son and team." He says "coaches can be role models for your son. I interview all my coaches myself," he said. He said he interviewed one young man for a quarterback coach job for two hours. It later came back to him that the young man had told someone that he had not asked at all about the quarterback fundamentals. His answer was that "i wanted to get a great father, a great coach, to get a role model."
He said Centerville is the only school in Dayton using helmets that show the speed of impact when hit. It does not tell if someone has a concussion, he said, just the speed of impact and number of hits. This information is transmitted back to the coaches so they can keep an eye on any player showing a number of high impact hits, he said. It will be up to the coaches to pull a player from the field, he said. He said Bill's Donut Shop was one of the main donating entities for the helmet devices. 
The meeting was closed with the reciting of the Rotary Four-Way Test.
Added note: 
It was mentioned in a past Bulletin that Jill Wallace, a Yankee Trace employee who helps with all the needs of the club, is a shoe person, but that wasn't obvious from the photo, so here are two that are more obvious, with a bit of Jill's small shoe collection and her real shoes, always coordinated with her colorful outfits. She always has a smile on her face and laughter in her heart. Way to go, Jill.
