2016 Active 20-30 National Midterm Convention

2016 Active 20-30 National Convention





National President: Dana von Sternberg

Brothers and Sisters in Active 20-30,

As I write this email, many of you have already completed your club's National Project. Children's Shopping Spree is a wonderful event which allows us to have the hands-on interaction with the children that need our help the most. I had the pleasure of attending both my home club shopping spree and the Rocky Mountain club's event. The ladies of Rocky Mountain put on a great event, complete with face painting, clowns, and delicious snacks for the kids. It's always fun to check out how another club tackles the same event. By visiting and volunteering at other events, it allows us to learn from their unique style and possibly share options for improvement that they may not have come up with. This is what makes visitations so important. If you find yourself in an area that has a club and have a couple hours of free time, reach out! Who knows what kind of trouble you might get into? ;)

Sadly, our organization laid to rest one of its own this past month. Serving as your National President during this time has been incredibly difficult. I have gained an even greater respect for those that have served before me. As many of you know, I am a private person, not necessarily sharing my feelings openly with those around me. Writing the letter to the membership surprised me as being cathartic, a coping mechanism where sharing my feelings allowed me to truly process my own sadness. This gave me pause. I think we, as a youthful group, often find ourselves bottling up our feelings and allowing them to lead us into a dark place.

I hope that with our recent loss we can remember what we are all here for, helping children while developing leaders, and be more open with one another. Life's too short to be fake, harbor ill will, or allow our emotions to get the best of us. We are all on the same team. There's a long term ahead of us. Let's get some work done.

In Service,

Committees at Work

Get to know your National Committees: Who are in the committees are and what they are doing!

National Website Committee:  

The website committee has been formed with a total of 6 members representing 4 of the 6 regions: Julianna Hart/Greater Sacramento; Taryn Imrie/ Napa: Daniel McCaffrey/ Folsom: Heather Wulfert/Greater Sacramento: Lindsey DellaDonna/ VOS: and Wayne Ingraham/Santa Rosa. This committee meets once per month and performs various upkeep tasks between meetings.  

Website Committees’ Primary Goals;
1. Clubs can pay dues, update rosters and submit insurance online. This is one of our biggest requests: Click here to use the online form.

2. Replace all stock images with real images provided by clubs featuring their members and events. We will also add more images throughout site to make it more engaging.

3. Input and keep up to date a calendar of club events. This goal will include educating clubs on how they can submit events to be included in both the website and newsletter in one form.

4. Reorganize all files for easier use. We will create a filing structure to separate files by topic and includes the ability to add more as they become available.

5. Provide RSS feed to gather public info about clubs and compile in one location. This would gather all articles, photos and videos that feature Active 20-30 around the U.S. Into one location for easy access. This is a great way to spread the word about all the great things our clubs do!

Thank you,
Julianna Hart

President Dana von Sternberg joined Rocky Mountain Active 20-30 #1042

Here is Dana and some of his shopping buddies taking a much needed rest during the Rocky Mountain Active 20-30 club's Back to School Shopping Spree. These girls and their classmates went home with backpacks stuffed full of their needed school supplies and bags of clothes to start the new school year with confidence and style. There was no shortage of Frozen-themed shirts (yes, we even sang “Let it Go” as we added them to our carts) and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle jackets. After shopping, we had snacks and enjoyed touring a fire truck full of fire fighters. There was a gaggle of clowns on hand to make sure the shoppers had faces painted with hearts and tigers. It was a great day, and wonderful to know that so many other clubs were having similar impacts at the same time.

Thank you, Dana for attending and participating in our event.

Active 20-30 Club of Redwood Empire #1029

Join us in celebrating Active 20-30 Redwood Empire’s 25th Anniversary!

In February 1990, the Active 20-30 Club of the Redwood Empire was founded by a group of local businesswomen. With 32 current members this all women club is very involved in their community. Different community events they help out with are, Kid’s Christmas, A children’s Halloween event, Catwalk for a cure and helping with Bob Burke’s Kid’s which is an organization that helps children with severe illness. These wonderful ladies also take part in the National Project the Children’s Shopping Spree. However, helping out at these events would not be possible without the success of their Annual Crab for Kids event. An incredible thing about Redwood Empire is that they provide college scholarships to young women who show a great dedication to their community through volunteering. Hopefully these young women will grow up and become #1029 members as well.

The 2016 13th Annual Crab for Kids will be held on February 6th.

MADERA, Calif. (KFSN) --
The community of Madera is rallying around a local freshman, recognizing him for overcoming obstacles. 14-year-old Axel Morales has a bright and determined smile. Born without legs, the teen's parents raised him to fear nothing and overcome everything.

His sister Lucero Morales tells us, "They raised him telling him nothing is going to hold him back just because you're this way doesn't mean you're not good enough it just means you're that much stronger."

He took those words to heart, treating education like it's easy. Mastering a 4.0 GPA, standing out in the FFA and then he discovered a love of basketball. His therapists say the adaptive sports program through Valley Children's Hospital turned him into a "beast" on the court. But there was one problem. The wheelchair. It just wasn't efficient during the game.

Coach Rick Martines, his adaptive P.E. specialist said, "When he got into 7th grade he noticed the kids were a lot bigger and it made it more difficult for him to be active."

Martines noticed the chair was holding him back. He explained, "He had been really quiet the past two years and this team showed him it doesn't matter the disability he can be active and it's given him the ability to do that and come out of his shell."

Martines found friends in the Madera 20/30 club. They took on the mission, buying a top of the line, state of the art wheelchair for Axel, upwards of $3,000.

Ricky Saldate, the 20/30 club president said, "Anything that we can do to help out the community we were raised in helps us feel better about what is going to happen to the future of Madera."

They gave him the chair in front of the entire school. Axel said publicly, "Thank you for everything you've supported me in I don't know what to say but..."

He's a man of a few words, but Axel emotionally said this donation means the world. Yet another example of an obstacle he'll overcome, dunking his fears straight through the net.

Axel explained, "It let me relieve my stress cause I just play I don't worry about homework or school."

Bringing hope and courage on and off the court.

The History of the Sawblade

Awesome history facts brought to you by Michele Spilman

Some of you may know my grandfather was a member of Active 20-30 Sacramento #1, I was interviewing him for family history and he recalled how they used to sing this song in 20-30 meetings. Click this link below to hear him sing it!

Carl Spilman sings 20-30 song

The Executive Council was the name of the central governing body of 20-30 before it became known as The Association of 20-30 Club.

Bucket's Time Out Corner

 'They've done studies, you know. 60% of the time, it works every time' - Brian Fantana

The Buzz-ed Saw Bio
Bakersfield #27
Our club this month keeps the status quo lower than a Déjà Vu strippers’ self esteem
The home of The Mint, The Hag, and… Dave Porter

The Hag & Buck Owens – if you don’t know who these men are or understand why they are listed as a pro quit reading this portion of the newsletter.  It obviously isn’t for you.
Last call – personally as a Nevadan I find last call to be as un-American as communism and terrorism, but if it weren’t for this law I am fairly certain the city of Bakersfield would last two months tops.
Real estate prices – thank God for cheap (or what California calls cheap) real estate or Past President Diniz would be out of work.
Golden Empire – at least there is one self-respecting club in Kern County that isn’t a CV85 knock off.
Country & Craft Beer Festival –  it's better than a fundraiser where volunteers get pepper sprayed.
Festival of Beers – it’s a (former) fundraiser where volunteers get pepper-sprayed.

Order it ‘Rusty’ – I’m pretty sure this is the local precursor to roofies since you can’t remember any part of the evening after ordering a drink poured this way.
Past President Diniz’ plane – being a slumlord is good business evidently.
Oildale – it’s like Sodom and Gomorrah, but more whiskey tango.

Diniz plane – have you heard he has a plane?  Yeah a half hour ago when you told me about it for a fourth time.

Q & A

The Public Relations Committee would like to ask you a question, responses that are submitted to the [email protected] will be reviewed for the next Twenty-Thirtian Newsletter Committee.

Matthew Larrabure of the Active 20-30 Club of Petaluma #30.

What was your favorite international convention?
I do not have much experience to lean on.  I have only been to two international events: Las Vegas for Mid-Term and El Salvador the past month.  With the limited amount of experience, it had a huge impact on me.  As many of you know, I competed in the speech contest.  That process alone was a HUGE learning experience for me.  From writing my first draft to multiple adjustments, changes, additions, re-works, and additions, I learn so much through that process.  The biggest things I learned was less is more, slow down, and smile more. 

My most memorable experience though wasn’t until after the speech.  Roberto from the Panama club came to me and said he loved what I talked about, loved the idea of taking children back to school clothes shopping, and wanted to integrate that into something that his club does.  That baffled me.  His club raises multiple millions of dollars each year compared to our fifteen thousand dollars we raise.  We are small fish in a pond that he is a huge fish.  He explained to me that it wasn’t about the dollar amount we raise, it is about impact we have on children.  If there is something one club does that another club can integrate and help more children, great!  We all can learn from each other.  Clubs that raise millions can learn from clubs that raise hundreds.  Clubs that have been active for 60 consecutive years can learn something from a club that was started last year, and vice versa.  We are all in this together, we are all here to help children in our communities. 

That is what Active 20-30 is all about.

Thank you Matthew Larrabure for taking the time to send in your response to last month’s question.  

Next Months Question: What is your favorite hands on event? 

Professionals at Work

The most amazing part of our club is the young professionals are working together to better the communities they are part of. We want to highlight some of the professionals who are doing great things in their communities. Would you like to share your story or a story of someone in your club?

Monica Uriarte - Active 20-30 National President-Elect & San Francisco #4

Monica Uriarte is our National President Elect and member of the Active 20-30 San Francisco #4. Monica has been an active member since July 2011.  Monica works as a Fund Development Consultant and when asking about her work this is what she had to say...

For the last eight years I have been providing fund development support to nonprofit organizations across the country.
What is fund development you ask?
Supporting organizations in increasing and diversifying their revenue sources. Whether it’s writing grant proposals, throwing large-scale fundraising events, cultivating major donors or securing corporate sponsorships, organizations depend on a number of sources to serve their communities. I support them in planning what revenue sources they access and putting together their proposals or throwing their events.

I have worked in almost every facet of development for nonprofit organizations and I opened my consulting firm in August of 2012. Since that time I have been supporting the Alameda County Probation Department and a variety of other counties and nonprofit organizations in writing effective grant proposals that have accumulated to nearly $15 million in revenue. I also support organizations in fundamental organizational development activities like strategic planning, fund development planning, marketing, and more. My biggest passion is helping nonprofit organizations achieve their missions and serve their communities and I am so grateful to have found a job that allows me to make an impact every day. I feel so lucky to manage my own business and support a variety of organizations, it keeps me on my toes constantly.

How do you stand out amongst other in the same field?  I have been very fortunate in my career to have accomplished so much so quickly. I graduated with my Masters Degrees in Public Administration & Nonprofit Administration in 2010 from the University of Oregon. I published my thesis on the financial effectiveness of social media fundraising in that same year. I have raised over $15 million through grants, events, and major gifts throughout my career and am looking forward to raising millions more.

Please describe community involvement in civic, charitable or other organizations.
I have built my career around supporting nonprofit organizations succeed. Whether paid or charitable, I have dedicated my life to serving my community, it is the greatest gift I can give in my life. I am so grateful to do the work that I do and also have an organization like Active 20-30 where I can continue my work for organizations that need it most.

Nickname Madness

How did you get your nickname? Does it have a great story? Let us know at [email protected].

Marcie Alvarez "Spider Monkey" - Active 20-30 Club of Redwood Empire #1029

It is a well-known fact that I climb things, and rather easily. So where or how exactly did my nickname Spider Monkey come from? Was it as simple as stating the obvious “Hey, that girl climbs trees and statues and other things that clearly say to stay off of”? No, obviously that is a boring story and I wouldn’t be writing about it if it had been that easy. No offense, Uggs, but you came to mind when I was thinking of unoriginal nicknames. If my nickname had an origin anything like Uggs from CV #85, then my nickname would be “stilts” or “high heals” or something absurd. And yes, I misspelled heels on purpose because everyone seems to ignore spell check. My apologies, I have digressed from the purpose of this story.

Spider Monkey, that is right; how my nickname came to be. Well, this one time, in Tahoe with Christy Calverley, her mom and another friend…we had a very fun girls' trip. It was October of 2011 and I had only been an official member of Redwood Empire #1029 for a few months. Christy was one of the first people that somehow convinced me to attend a ton of 20-30 events, so naturally we became besties immediately. Our friendship blossomed and the next thing you knew, we were taking non 20-30 trips together, like Tahoe. During this particular trip, we learned random things about each other, one of them being how I like to be big spoon. Because we were sharing a bed on this trip, I was warned to not attempt to big spoon her during our slumber. I made no promises. She was annoyed. These two things tend to be a constant in our friendship to this day! So, her mom overhears and is curious as to how someone of my size could ever be big spoon to a normal sized person. Naturally, I offered to show her by using Christy as my prop. Christy refused to willingly participate, so I tackled her as she was walking towards the bed. To give you some imagery, I took a running start, jumped on to her back, and she screamed out something like “Get off you crazy spider monkey!”

Long story short, I earned the nickname Spider Monkey by tackling Christy. Was it the first and only time I ever tackled her? Nope. Is she the only person I have tackled due to a challenge? Nope. While my nickname might not be impressive or even original (still better than Uggs…), the memories attached to it are rather amazing.  Not only does it remind me of how I became more involved in this wonderful organization, it also brings back all of the memories of how I developed incredible friendships along the way.

Chadwick Anderson – Active 20-30 Club of Petaluma #30

Chadwick Anderson is being recognized as a Past Active Life member. Chadwick has been a member of the Active 20-30 club of Petaluma #30 since the spring of 2011. Chadwick served in multiple positions as an active member including; Treasurer 2011/2012; President 2012/2013; IPP/Board Member 2013/2014. During his time as an active member Chadwick chaired the 2012 Children’s Shopping Spree Chair.

When asking Mr. Anderson what his most memorable moment since joining the Active 20-30 Family his response was priceless…..

“I have a lot of great memories during my tenure with Active 20-30. Our annual Children’s Shopping Sprees are truly unforgettable. Each year they serve as a reminder what Active 20-30 is about and the reason I joined. To see the joy and excitement the children display is such a humbling experience.

Additionally, I would like to say our Conventions are always memorable. Thus far, the 2015 International Convention in El Salvador has been by far my favorite. A lot of new friendships were made; but most importantly, it truly showed me the effect Active 20-30 International clubs have in other countries. It was my first International Convention, but certainly not the last. I just wish I attended one sooner. “

-Chadwick Anderson
Petaluma #30

Thank you Chadwick for all your hard work! Congrats on this lifetime award.

Dave Jones-Landry – Active 20-30 Club of Santa Rosa, #50
July 14, 1973 – August 11, 2015

It is with a heavy heart that announce the passing of our fellow Active 20-30 Past Active Life Member, Dave Jones-Landry

Dave Jones-Landry, affectionately called DJL, overcame humble beginnings to put himself through college and become a successful Santa Rosa civil lawyer. Dave never forgot his roots. Soon after starting his legal practice, he joined the Active 20-30 Club of Santa Rosa #50.

He served as president of Santa Rosa #50 in the Spring of 2012 and was named a Past Active Member in 2014. Dave was only in the club for approximately 6 years, but in that time exemplified what it meant to serve the children of Sonoma County. Dave was dedicated to the Club and his passion was putting on work projects that directly benefitted kids.

What many people don’t know was that Dave’s passion for helping kids came from his own experience as a child that suffered a bout with lymphoma that left his heart with some lasting damage. Several years ago Dave needed to have a pacemaker installed to help regulate his heart.  About four months ago, it was discovered that Dave’s heart valves were failing and needed to be replaced immediately. Dave underwent emergency surgery to replace the valves.
Unfortunately, Dave’s recovery did not go well.  Dave suffered from an infection after the surgery and had to have open heart surgery again to replace the heart valves and the pacemaker. Sadly, he was unable to recover from the last surgery in June.

DJL is survived by his wife Elise and two little girls, Farah (5) and Daisy (2).  Last year, Dave’s wife Elise had a cancer scare and went through surgery herself. Dave was the primary breadwinner and had been out of work for several months. Elise was out of work for her procedure and was also spending her days traveling the hour to San Francisco and back each way to be at her husband’s side and be home to take care of their daughters.
Sadly, because of Dave’s childhood bout with cancer he was never able to get life insurance to take care of his family in a situation like this. Our club is trying to make life a little easier for Elise and the girls in this unfathomably tough time. We’d like to help them with costs associated with the services, the medical bills, daily living expenses and set up the girls for the foreseeable future and beyond. You can help Elise, Farah and Daisy by donating here: Any amount will help.

Active 20-30 Club Santa Rosa #50 the Active 20-30 US & Canada is sorry for the loss of your Active Brother.
