Happy February!!
Sorry I didn't post anything last month. Most of you know that my husband and I are in the middle of construction on building our new business. Our target opening day is set for March 3rd. Please keep your fingers crossed. 
 
As my time as being your President is getting shorter I wanted to Thank all of you for your support. Our next big fundraiser is coming up on May 11 and I'm so happy that Cees has taken this roll on and is truly making sure we have all the tools to make this tournament one to remember. Cees is making sure that all documents and emails are secured in Rotary's Google Drive. Access to these files are a fingertip away. Being organized is key on being successful. This is a club effort though, so please help where needed. Bring in Tee sponsors and wine or craft beer for the giveaway. If everyone does their part, this may be the biggest tournament in past years.
 
Thank all of you who have come up to me to tell me that I'm doing a good job. It means the most to me to hear it from you. I know I have made a few mistakes but no one is perfect. If you feel I need some improvement, I would love to hear that too. Our next meeting will be a fun one with our "Not so Compatible Game". Yes it's usually the "Not so New Newlywed Game" but next week it has more of a twist. Let's see how well our members know each other.
 
In closing, I understand that some of you have not enjoyed the meals a Black Lake. This last evening meeting the food was delicious. They have hired a new chief and is willing to take suggestions and so I'm hoping that you will try and make our next evening meeting. 
 
Your Pres,
Kat
 
 
 
 
 
I can't believe the Holidays are here. A time to reflect and give Thanks. It's also Rotary's Disease Prevention and Treatment month. Most of you have met my daughter. She was diagnosed with epilepsy when she was 8 months old. Seizures have been a part of our lives now for over 33 years. My daughter has seizures everyday and is on several medications plus has a VNS planted in her chest. When I go up north or down south you hear information on seizure disorders but not here on the Central Coast and I'm not sure why that is. One in 26 people will have a seizure at some point in their lives. We should be talking about it. People need to be aware of the facts about seizures and the myths. Do you know what to do if someone has a seizure right in front of you? I want to start up that conversation here on the Central Coast.
 
Some things to remember; Barry is collecting coats, jacket, sweaters and sweatshirts. Please make sure they are in good condition. We also have our kids Christmas party happening at Black Lake golf Course on the 20th and our Adult party is on the 17th.
 
We will not be having an evening meeting this month. We will be dark that week but will resume our evening meetings in January. This last meeting was great. I love that members are bringing their spouses. It's a great opportunity for our family members to experience Rotary. I did take a vote on keeping the evening meeting or scraping it and the vote went to keeping it. I'm hoping that the few who do not attend will make an exception in the future.
 
This has been a very busy past few month with our club and I want to Thank all of you for helping in each event. This club is an amazing group of people.

What a month. We finished our Little Free Library, we planted trees in the park for every member and was joined by our District Governor John Weiss, we had beach clean up with Interact from Nipomo High and Righetti High and we had an amazing event with Mesa Middle School Drama Dept, Boys and Cub Scout troop 405 & 450 along with the Best Rotary Club on the Central Coast. I want to Thank all of you who participated in any and all of these events.
This month looks like we are going to be just as busy. Starting this Sunday BBQing for the 4H club at St Joseph's Church, Community Thanksgiving Fests on November 12th also at the Church, Nipomo High School Pancake breakfast and Turkey pull at the Pismo Veterans Hall. We will also be having another evening meeting at Black Lake on the 29th. See you there!
