Fall has arrived. One of our biggest Fundraisers is on October 29th "Winner Winner Pulled Pork Dinner" The money that comes from this event goes to supporting our club along with the our partners for this event, Mesa Middle School Drama Dept and Boy & Cub Scouts here in Nipomo. I'm asking that all our members please do your part and sell your tickets. 
 
October 7 & 8 is OctoberFest at Nipomo Regional Park. We will be providing BBQ sandwiches on the 7th. Please come out and support your club. The money raised at this event will go towards that amazing  BBQ and Smoker we are having built
.
Update on out Little Free Library. It is near completion. Al is collecting books for all ages. 
 
October 14th is the day we will be planting a tree for every member. I am really excited about doing this project. Not only did our RI President, Ian Riseley, ask all club members to plant a tree this year but locally our park has lost a lot of trees due to end of growth, insects and drault. October is the month for Economic and Community Development so all of this ties together.
 
On Sept 27 was our first evening meeting. A few of you had voiced that we are a breakfast club and do not like the change. I understand what you are saying. Rotary International is asking us to change to build Rotary back up and if we can build a club that will appeal to a younger audience one day a month, I feel it's worth trying. Change is good and I feel that most of you will agree, it was fun. Some us even brought our spouses. I'm looking forward to this months evening meeting on October 25th at Black Lake Golf Course. 
 
I would like to remind you to please answer the survey sent monthly. Only 10% of our club is. The information is sent to me anonymously but the remarks are very valuable to the club so we/I may improve.
 
I want to tell of you how much this club/you mean to me. These past few years have been very tough for my husband and I and without the friendships and the support from all of you, it would have been much harder. We all go through stuff in our lives, but without the support of family and friends it would be tough to see the light at the end of the tunnel. We see that light and it's getting brighter. Sometimes it dims a little but it's picking up the energy we need to get through this.
 
Thank you all,
Your President

This month I am proposing that our club builds a Little Free Library and place it in front of the Chamber of Commerce. I have met with a few of our members and I have started looking for used materials that we can build with. Habitat for Humanity has some amazing things that with a little imagination we can transform into our Little Library. Once our project is finished we will be asking each of our members to bring a book to put into the Library. 
 
Another project we will be doing is planting a tree for every member. The date for this project is October 14 at the Nipomo Regional park. One of the Girl Scout Troops here in Nipomo will be helping us in this project. If you feel that you are not able to help plant your tree, I am asking that you find a family member to possibly plant yours. These trees will be coastal live oaks most likely one gallon in size so small enough to plant ourselves. We will need to put screening around the roots to protect them. Cages and large post to protect them above ground. So please mark your calendars for October 14 starting around 9:00am. 
 
A project that really needs to be finished is the bricks in front of the Rotary Bandstand. I have about 6 more bricks that need to be printed and placed in the ground. This may end up being a rather large project from the looks of it. I was there the other day and noticed the sand that was holding the bricks in place has mostly blown away and some bricks have been lifted up. There are weeds that need to be cleaned out as well. We will need to cover the printed bricks with tape so it is easier to mortar the bricks in. If at all possible, maybe some of us can be working on the Bandstand while some of us are planting. Just a thought. It is a lot to do but it needs to get finished. 
 
I have to say that this is the part of Rotary I enjoy the most and understand it may not be yours. All I ask is that you help out in some way. Thank you all for being the Best Club on the Central Coast!!
 
Reminder that this month we will start having our once a month evening meeting at Black Lake. Meeting will be on September 27th at 6:00pm to 7:30pm.
 
September Basic Education and Literacy Month Kat Stowell 2017-09-01 07:00:00Z 0
Over the past six weeks I have felt that this position might be too hard for me. I'm not like my husband to make people laugh but today I believe we have turned that corner by bringing the wheel back. For the first time in a long time there was lots of laughter and that made me feel really good. I have taken the suggestions of others and appreciate you helping me find what works. 
This month we are celebrating 3 Birthdays, Kelly, Al and Ed's. Many wishes to you all. Congrats to Santa Maria Rotaract for being Chartered and Thank you for attending our meeting. It was a pleasure having you.  This Sunday the 13th we are having a family picnic at Cees and Ilona's home and I would like to say Thank you in advance for being our host. I love all of us getting together outside of our meetings and volunteer work and just socializing. Another outing is on Friday down in Solvang at the PCPA to see Newbies. I know we will all have a great time. 
Congratulations to Mario and Bruce for receiving their blue badges. Mario stated he was a little slow on getting his but very thorough. That's what we like about you Mario! Enjoy the photos for this month so far and check back to catch the rest later.

   This month we started off volunteering for the 1st annual Jim Tefft Memorial 4th of July Parade. Thank you to all that volunteered that day. It was an amazing event. July 5th was my first meeting. What I'm hoping from showing you all on how to use the Club Runner website and app is that it is a great club tool. One place to put our photos, stories and events and now Blogs where you can make a comment and reply to others. I'm still learning this feature but hope to master it soon. Club Runner is changing and is really becoming that Social Media tool for Rotarians.
    On July 12th our speaker was Sam Cotton from Single Action Shooting Society. Amazing videos on how fast they shoot and how many shots are done in "seconds". 
July 18 our guest speaker will be Debbie Wilson with The Oaks at Nipomo, a Senior & Memory care home and on July 26, our guest speaker will be Frank Ortiz.
    Upcoming Socials for August - If you haven't signed up and would like to attend August 11th is Newsy at the Solvang PCPA Theater. Please see Judy or Cathy for sign up. August 13 will be our Family Picnic at Cees Dobbe house. A sign up sheet will be going around. Please bring a dish!
  Yours truly,

A word from Kat Stowell - June 26, 2017
I would like all of us to reflect on this past Rotary year and Thank Jeremy for his time and guidance as President of this amazing club. I look forward to taking on the task as President for the upcoming year 2017/2018 and know that as a club we will have Fun! One of the projects as a club we will be doing is planting a tree for every member. This request has come from our new Rotary International President Ian Riseley. I love this challenge because so many trees have died in our park and we as a club have another opportunity to make a difference in our community. Cees Dobbe is taking charge of the Golf Tournament and is already planning his first meeting right after our Winner Winner Pulled Pork Dinner Fundraiser. Yes, you read that correctly. I believe in changing things up and making things easier. We are doing Pulled Pork for our October Fundraiser. Richard Dale is in charge of our BBQ team and is looking to having our BBQ trailer fitted with cabinets and sink and also have a custom BBQ built for our club. One of my favorite things to do with the club is BBQing. There's nothing like having and sharing a great meal with others.
This years International's theme is "Rotary Making a Difference" and our District theme is "Celebrating Rotary" Our club theme is "Cats having Fun" With a name like mine did you think it would be something different? I hope I can be that PURRRRfect Leader and I know I can because of all of you. I want to Thank you in advance for your input and guidance for my year.
Kat

Good morning Ladies and Gents!!
 
Wow!!! What a great meeting this morning!!  To think of all of the great ideas we came up with this morning, as we try to reach with our power as the Rotary Club of Nipomo!!! 
DON’T FORGET THE CONTEST ALL MONTH OF JANUARY!!!! (See below…)
 
  1. We learned about a little history of Rotary and the Rose Parade, for our Minutes of Rotary.
 
  1. We featured one great member: Mario Iglesias (not to be confused with Julio Iglesias), as he shared some of his past history on how he ended up from the antique furniture business to the wonderful world of Water! He also shared his experiences in being in a family band (Ask him to play the Trumpet!).  Always interesting to learn the different backgrounds we come from in our club. 
 
  1. The Social Media Minute was covered to share the new additions to the club this morning!  Congratulations and welcome to the club.  We inducted our two new members (former Rotarians in another part of the country): Ed Harris and Peter Verhage.  It was definitely a privilege to be able to start the year off with two studious additions to the club!  We know you will be there for all of us, as we will be there for you!
 
  1. We had some great Brags for Serving Humanity!  Some great holiday pastimes and Mary Mylan’s Birthday (The big 3-0)! 
 
  1. Club Announcements/Upcoming events-
  • Board Meeting @ The Chamber Office. January 17, 2017, 5:30pm. 
  • Interact Club Program (meeting time).  January 25, 2017.
 
  1. Then we collaboratively had an awesome brainstorming session on two different topics in groups (tables)!!!  The two topics were the following:
 
  1. ideas for different community outreach opportunities that we may be missing (Top ideas derived):
 
  • Open House at the Gazebo (Rotary Displays, giving to the community)
  • Mailer about Rotary
  • Combined Chamber Mixers
  • Movie in the Park (Rotary Hosted at the Gazebo)
  • Electronic Bulletin Board (Rotary bannered, Solar Powered)
  • Educational Booth on Rotary (At local events- Oktoberfest)
  • Nipomo High School Relationship (More representation and presence)
  • Seniors in Need (The local center or other places we can touch seniors within the community)
  • Veterans in need (locally)
 
  1. Started listing out prospective members for the Rotary Club of Nipomo, and we came up with over 25 specific names or organizations locally, that could potentially have representation with our club.  This is the contest, Anyone that brings a prospective member, the guest and the member’s breakfast is on the club for the entire month of January!!!!
 
 
Have a great week!!!

My last time presiding over Rotary Club of Nipomo meetings was yesterday.  Thanks to all who have helped throughout the year in setting up for the meetings, as well as cleaning up after the meetings.
 
Some meeting highlights include:

The next meeting of the golf committee will be next Wednesday at 530.  If you missed the last one, please try to make this one as your input is needed on a number of outstanding issues.

The contract with Monarch Dunes has been signed and we are on our way.  We need to make person contact with all potential golfers as soon as possible.  Peggy is working on SAVE THE DATE flyers and Jeremy is working on the sign-up sheets.  Joyce is working on the player gift bags, which will be supplied by Sean.  If you know of any one who can contribute player gifts (144) such as Phillips 66 who have these great gifts that the have supplied to other golf tournaments, let Joyce know asap.  We will be giving away the golf belts again this year.

We are hoping to have each member donate or aquire the following, as well as helping out on the day of the tournament:

  • One bottle of craft beer (25oz) for the barrel of beer prize

  • One bottle of wine or liquor for the booze wagon prize

  • A foursome for the golf tournament

  • A sponsor for a Tee Sign

  • And a raffle prize.

 If we all pull together this can have the potential of being our most profitable golf tournament ever.

Members,
 
If you would like to contribute to the Christmas Parade of Lights canned food drive this year you can do one of two things:
 
Bring cans to the meeting tomorrow morning and I will get them to the food bins for you.
 
Or bring them to the parade this Saturday and simply drop them in one of the food bins along the parade route. 
 
All the food collected is donated to the Salvation Army.
 
Thank you for everything you do!

Ladies and Gentlemen –
 
We had a great meeting yesterday.  The program was about Roller Derby, and we had several members of the local team in attendance to tell us about Roller Derby, as well as give us a brief demonstration.  The last game of the season will be on November 22 in Santa Maria, and Judy will be organizing a Rotary Club of Nipomo trip to see it.  I can’t wait.
 
Next week’s trivia question is:  “Which member of the Rotary Club of Nipomo is already a Roller Derby groupie?”
 
Harry and Jim attended the Rotary District Conference in Monterey last weekend and talked about some of the inspiring speakers.  Club veterans were recognized.
 
Al Daurio is coordinating with the other South County Clubs involved with the literacy book project to find a printer that can do the job.
 
Octoberfest in the Nipomo Regional Park is coming this Saturday and Sunday.  Barry and Jeremy will staff a Rotary booth, and Richard Dale will be barbecuing.
 
Jim Anderson will talk about his experience in the Army Reserve and Afghanistan next week.

Ladies and Gentlemen –
 
Today, our speaker was Marshall Bradford, who is 99 years and ten months old.  Also attending was the charter president of the Rotary Club of San Luis Obispo de Tolosa, Dennis Allan.  Mr. Allan generously donated $500.00, which will be matched by either club points, or individual points to award Mr. Bradford a Paul Harris Fellowship!!  What a wonderful gift!  We will have Mr. Bradford, and hopefully Mr. Allan back soon to award the Paul Harris Fellowship.
 
In addition, Kat won the fine free coffee mug, but forgot to take it!  I will have it ready for her next week.
 
Next week, Bill Pucciarelli presents the Roller Derby women as our program.
 
The barbecue for Mesa Middle School’s rock climbing wall will be on November 7 from 11 – 2.  More details to come.
 
Sell those Taste of Italy tickets!  (We found out this morning that, when George cooks, he uses formulas, not recipes!)
 
Thanks again for all you are doing for our community!

 Great job Team! There has never been an event that The Rotary Club of Nipomo hasn't shined! Congrats to all of the team members that made it! For the team members that didn't, they were missed! 
     We made sure we ate the amazing Tri tip, enjoyed the seasoned chicken, indulged in the finest watermelon concoction, drank every drink our hearts desired, and capped it off with one of Judy's famous Bailey's Irish Creme and Caramel Cheesecake!!! 
 
Congrats on the great service and having fun while doing it!!!

SoHIP (Seeds of Hope International Partnership) has been awarded a Matching Grant from the Rotary Foundation to provide vocational training to disadvantaged youth and women, empowering them to reverse the downward spiral of poverty in their lives. In May we celebrated the arrival of the container filled with material and supplies, including computers, sewing machines, and carpentry tools, to launch the vocational training programs. The Ndola Mukuba Rotary Club in Zambia was present to hand over the items to Seeds of Hope. — in Ndola, Zambia.

Hello Rotarians,

I would like to thank all of you for your help with our very first Poker Run for Polio!
What a great day!
The weather cooperated perfectly and by the look on everyone's faces it was a good time for all!
The food was wonderful and the fellowship was equally as wonderful.

Very special thanks to Bill, Lynn, Cees, Ilona, Colette and Lou for being our abroad card dealers!

Thank you to all who helped coordinate, set-up, BBQ, cleanup and those who participated in the Poker Run.

Also thank you to all that contributed to our "Wagon of Love"!

Today was a testimony of why we are "The Best Small Club In District 5240".

Our members are all active and that is what makes us so successful in our fundraising efforts.

I'm proud to be a member of such a great club!

Go Rotary Club of Nipomo!

Fellow Rotarians,

The stage is set and we are ready to go! 
Thank you to all of you who have volunteered to help with this event.  
If you don't already have an assignment and want to help you can do any of the following:

A) Show up at The Dana Adobe on Sunday morning around 8am, hang out and drink some coffee and help out with registration. 

B) Register for the run yourself and take a nice Sunday drive through the Santa Maria Valley. We do have a bus if you don't want to drive yourself but seating is limited.
It will be leaving from The Men's Club at 10:15 so you do need to register at The Dana Adobe first.

C) Help with the BBQ. I will be starting the fire at 10 am. Chicken, beans, bread and salad.
If you would like to hang out around the pit, fantastic. If you would like to butter or slice some bread, even better!  There is always something to do. Sell raffle tickets, play horseshoes, etc. so come out and have some fun!

D) Cleanup. It has to be done so the more hands the better.

I hope to see you all at some point on Sunday!

YIRS

Thank you for all your effort in making this years canned food drive a HUGE success. 
The official number of canned food donated by our club is 500!
I will match that number and bring our clubs total to 1000!
Great job!

I want to send out special thanks to Bill Pucciarelli for stepping up and taking on the role of Director of the Canned Food Challenge Response Team. 
Thank you Bill! (I knew I would have to double check his count when he had to remove his shoes to use his toes to count after he ran out of fingers).

Also thank you Rodger Ridley for donating his winnings from this mornings raffle to go toward the food drive. Way to go Rodger! Thank you.

As always our club is unmatched in it's efforts to help our community and help those in need.
THANK YOU ALL FOR CONTRIBUTING!
Have a great day and I hope to see you this weekend at the parade.

YIRS

Dear Rotarians,

Service Above Self

Those few words pretty much sum thing up.
 
I put out a small challenge to our club and in return received HUGE results! 

Thank you all!

If you were not able to attend the meeting this morning, please bring some canned food to next weeks meeting. 

Rumor has it there was over 200 cans brought in this morning! Nice!
Although I still need to verify Bill Pucciarelli's math.

Happy Thanksgiving to all!
See you next week.

Dear Members,

The Christmas Parade of Lights / Canned Food Drive is just around the corner and I have a challenging for our club.

I will personally match the amount of canned food that is brought in by our membership to the next 2 meetings.  

You read that right. I will match ALL of your efforts so let's see what you can do with that. 

The canned food drive was one of Paul Teixeira's passions so in his memory lets make this year another HUGE success.

Please raid your cupboards or throw a couple extra cans in your basket next time you go to the grocery store and bring them to one of the next 2 meetings, it's that easy. 
 
We also have can collection boxes set up in Nipomo, one at Starbucks and one at CVS Pharmacy. Spread the word to your friends and family. 

Have a great day!

YIRS

As of today, we have collected 32 Taste of Italy tickets out of 100 tickets assigned to the Rotary.  That means only 68 more to be turned in from our club members.  We are definitely getting there . . . but we also have only 20 days before the big event!!!

I've heard from several of you that your tickets have been committed to be sold and you are just pending the collection of the money.  Thank you for your efforts!

 

For those that have not communicated to your team captains or to me, please let me know if:  1)  You are having trouble selling  or 2)  You are still working on it and confident you'll have them sold before the event.  Now is the time for us to help each other get these tickets SOLD!!! 

 

We also need Auction Items . . . so Judy and I will be contacting you directly for help!!!  Again, thank you to those members that have already obtained an auction item for the event!

 

There you go . . . that's my Rah, Rah speech!!  Looking forward to seeing more tickets turned in on Wednesday!!!  Go Team Rotary!

Posted by Colette Hyder on Sep 30, 2013

 

Dear Members . . . our fundraiser event is just around the corner!!  So we really need to put a strong effort in selling those tickets within the next few weeks (because that is all we have)!!

 For those of you that have sold tickets, please please please bring them tomorrow to the meeting.  If you've made a valiant effort to try and sell and not had luck . . . bring your unsold tickets tomorrow or give to your team captain so that we have an opportunity to try and sell them.

This event takes 100% participation and we defiinitely have that buy-in from the Drama Department Parents this year!  It should be a huge success if we all take accountability and do our part.  If you can't sell your ticket, we ask that you try and bring in some donations for our auction!

We can do this!!

To all Rotarians,

 

Wow what a ride it has been.

The Friends of Paul Teixeira put on a “simple” $10 Memorial BBQ and we end up with over 20k NET!

That is just awesome for something that was put together in less than 2 weeks.

 

Our Rotary club played a HUGE part in making this a success.

We all played a small part individually.

Together though, we made it BIG!

 

To everyone who bought tickets, sold tickets, worked on it, brought volunteers to the BBQ etc. etc.

Give yourself a big round of applause.

The interesting thing is that many times when others or myself thank people for helping with this event they say; NO, thank you for letting me be part of this!!!

Isn’t that cool…….

 

Below in red is what Deanna posted on Facebook

 

Where do I begin to thank everyone for all the love and support? To the BBQ crew - you are all amazing! What an impressive group you are! I love each of you so much. To everyone who bought a ticket or made a donation or just drove by to say hi, thank you!!! Our family is so appreciative and lucky to live in such a loving community. We know you all miss Paul too, and our love and thanks go out to you all for helping us through this very difficult time.
XOXOXO
Deanna Teixeira and Family

 

Are we living in a great community or what!!!!!

 

See you all on Wednesday

Hello Fellow Rotarians,

 

Wow, what a ride we are on with Paul's BBQ, what a great experience.

 

We are busy planning, organizing and getting ready for PT BBQ DAY on the 27th

 

Cathy Cachu suggested we all wear Hawaiian shirts that day and I think that is a great idea.

Cathy and Ken Whittle are coordinating the volunteers so if you have not already contacted them about your availability , please do so.

 

Right now we have over 1,450 BBQ tickets in circulation.

A lot of those have been sold and for part of those I have already received the money.

 

So now I need your help for our BBQ team to get as best of an estimate by Thursday how many tickets we really have sold, how many we did not and also how many of the tickets were sold but in your best estimate they will not show up to redeem them......

 

So at tomorrow morning's meeting I will be there earlier (what am I saying.....) and I would like the following from you

·         An account of how many tickets you have sold so far together with the ticket numbers

·         Money for the tickets that you have received so far (corresponding with the ticket numbers) I don’t need to know exactly who bought a specific ticket but I would like to know what money represents what range of numbers.

·         Give me your best estimate of the number of tickets you have sold where people informed you that they will for sure not redeem them

 

 

There is still a lot of week left before PT BBQ DAY so we can still sell more tickets

If you know of people/organizations that need tickets let me know and one way or another we will get them there.

Obviously if you need tickets yourself you can get those from me anytime or at tomorrow morning’s meeting

 

Let us continue on this wild ride J

 

Rotarily yours,

Saturday, July the 27th the Friends of the Paul Teixeira Family are holding a BBQ in the Miner’s Parking Lot at the corner of Tefft Street and Mary Avenue.

Paul was suddenly taken from us on June the 27th at just 57 years old, leaving his family and innumerable friends in stunned disbelief. Paul was heavily involved with the community his entire life and had given so much to any organization or person in need of help or money. This is the opportunity for our community to give back to Paul’s family, fund a Scholarship for his youngest daughter and to help with some of the issues that his wife Deanna now faces.

Checks can be made out to the Paul Teixeira Memorial Fund             

Tickets are available at the following locations:

Nipomo Chamber of Commerce, 671 West Tefft Street suite # 2 Nipomo – Healing Touch Day Spa, 180 South Mary Avenue Nipomo.

Rabobank Nipomo, 615 West Tefft Street – St. Joseph’s Roman Catholic Church, 298 South Thompson Nipomo – UPS store Nipomo 110 Mary Ave ste#2.

The Mayor’s Place, 11 West Tefft Street, Nipomo – Streator Pipe & Supply 1441 South Blosser Road Santa Maria.

Or you can e-mail cees@dobbe.biz, text (805) 540-4748 or call.

Tickets donated by SloCo Data & Printing in Grover Beach.

Meat, drinks and bread all donated by the Rotary Club of Nipomo.

Dear Members,

Last Saturday night at the District 5240 Awards and Recognition dinner our club not only won the Governors Gold Club of Distinction but for the first time in history, our club won the Best Overall Small Club in the District!
Way to go Rotary Club of Nipomo!
 
We should all be proud of our accomplishments this last year in serving our community.

In reflection, I encourage you to take a few minutes and scroll thru the meeting pictures from this last year on our Clubrunner page.

My goal as President was to not only to continue providing and supporting all of the services our club has done in the past but to make sure that we were having fun while doing so.
I think the pictures support my effort.

We have a great club and I thank all of you for your dedication and efforts this past year.

It is so hard at this time to reflect when we have suffered such a great loss with the passing of Paul Teixeira.
The healing process has begun but it will take a long time to fill the void left in our hearts.      


    PAUL TEIXEIRA
"SERVICE ABOVE SELF"

He lived it.
Now we must carry on the torch.

Members,

Last night the golf battle between Cathy and Peggy took place at Monarch Dunes.
It was more like a game of chess than golf. 
Every time Cathy would make a move Peggy would counter attack. 
The cat and mouse game went on for nearly three hours.
The restless crowd sat on the patio deck waiting (and drinking) to see who would emerge as the Rotary Women's Golf Champ.

The end result of the battle between Cathy and Peggy was a two stroke victory by long ball hitter Cathy Cachu.

It was not an easy victory for Cathy,  Peggy gave her a run for the money all the way to the last hole.

Congratulations to both of you for a battle that will long go down in history.

I'm sure Cathy will be bragging next week.....

On another note.

Be sure to attend next weeks meeting. It will be one to remember.
Paul Teixeira repeatedly fined Judy Henbury this past week and next week guess who will be President....Judy. I hope Paul wears a suit of armor and calls out for a missile defense system backup because Judy is coming at him with both barrels loaded! Paul better head to the ATM machine because he is going to need it.

Everyone have a great weekend!

Members,

It's on tonight!
Girl VS Girl.
Rotarian VS Rotarian.
No this is not a mud wrestling event.
It's a golfing challenge.
 
Live from Monarch Dunes it's our own Cathy Cachu (longball hitter) VS Peggy Hesse (sneeky good) in a golf match that could be legendary. 

They are playing for bragging rights with the best net score on 9 holes.
I have a feeling it might end up a tie but who knows what might happen.

There is one thing for sure. The cheerleaders (us) will be having cocktails on the patio when they finish their game. 

So......
If your in the neighborhood and would like to enjoy a nice cold beer or perhaps a glass of wine on me please join me at Monarch dunes this evening around 6:00.

Have a great day!

Mike

Dear Members,

What an awesome step down party!

Thank all of you so much for the wonderful gifts and all the great friendship you shared with me and Lisa tonight.

I sat down this evening and looked through the pictures in my new Rotary book and it really hit home. 
We truly have a great rotary family!
Boy did we have some wonderful times this year!

I will bring the book to next weeks meeting and share it with the club. We really did A LOT for our community.

It was a real honor to be your President this year and I am lucky to have such great friends.

Now I am going to cover up in my new monkey blanket (Thanks Al & Helen) and look through my big monkey gift basket.

Who knows what I might find in there.......

No monkey business

Dear Members,

Well it looks like the 17th Annual Mesa Oaks Rotary Golf Tournament was another big hit!
Thank you Ken and Jeremy for chairing the event and making it another "fun" fundraiser!
Thanks to the golf committee for planning this years event down to a "Tee" and following up by running a great tournament.

Although this year many members were out of town on the day of the event, we still had a great showing of Rotarians and friends helping make things run smoothly.

I am exceptionally proud of all our members!  Whether you purchased a tee sign for your business or helped sell some raffle tickets, it takes many hands to have a successful event and that is why our club is so successful, we all participate!

I'm looking forward to some bragging in the morning. Our club members just participated in The Pismo Beach Rotary Golf Tournament on Monday and rumor has it they won!
Great job Jeremy, Cathy, Peggy and Bill!    
      
Have a great evening and I hope to see you all in the morning.

Members,

Last nights Public Service Awards Banquet was another huge success!
It is not often enough that we get to say "thank you" to the first responders that play such an important part in keeping our community safe.
Special thanks to Barry Dunahoo and Paul Teixiera for making all the arraignments with the different agency's, making the plaques, and doing a great job presenting them to the recipients.
And thank you Ken Shadle for a very inspirational invocation.
Also a big thank you to Judy Henbury for arranging a great dinner!

Last Saturday we also had 2, (that's right 2!), barbeques going on at the same time.
Richard Dale headed up a prostate cancer fundraiser BBQ in Santa Maria along with Bill Pucciarelli and Ken Whittle helping him cook the 180 chicken half's. Rumor has it it was the best darn chicken in the county! Great job guys!

Also we had a full crew at the Edward's Barn making our favorite Tri-Tip Sandwiches for the visitors of the Central Coast Greenhouse Growers Association event. Richard Simons did a fantastic job cooking the meat and all of our assembly team and sales team worked great together to make a work day fun! Of course I can't forget to thank Cathy Cachu for bringing the donuts! Also thanks to Cees for those wonderful strawberries! I don't know what he waters them with but they sure are sweet!
Thanks to all of you that participated! 

The proceeds from this event will go to Rotary's continued effort to eradicate Polio. We will be making a 1200.00 contribution toward the cause! Great job! 
  
Additionally from the proceeds, our club donates 500.00 back to CCGGA in which they award a scholarships in our Rotary clubs name. What a win win event this is!

Lastly, thank you to Judy Henbury for making all the arrangements last week for our fellowship trip to the Melodrama. It was a lot of fun and a great play! Thank you Judy!!!

We serve our community and have a lot of fun doing it, this is why we are truly a GREAT Rotary club!
Keep up the good work Rotarians!

Well, the 6'5" Easter Bunny showed his face at this mornings meeting and it looks like most Rotarian's went home with a little Easter treat! Thanks BIG GUY!
And special thanks to the bunny's helpers Bill Pucciarelli and Cathy Cachu for putting on a fun meeting.

We have been asked by The Food Bank to participate in a distribution program at Dorothea Lange school starting this summer.
Anyone interested in watching the process can join me in Oceano tomorrow morning (Thursday) and see exactly what is being asked of our club.
It takes place tomorrow at the Oceano Senior Center, 1580 Railroad Street at 8:45am.

The BBQ crew will be there at 9am to set up and we should be selling burgers by 11:00.
Come out and support our community, it's what we do!

 I hope to see you on Saturday.

We need you

I just signed up for an important event and want to share it with you! Picture yourself walking around a track, surrounded by family and friends, encouraging each other to make another lap, as you celebrate those who’ve fought cancer, remember loved ones lost, and fight back against a disease that has taken too much from too many.  

This is the scene at every American Cancer Society Relay For Life event, including the one I will be participating in.  I’d be honored if you’d be a part of our team.

The money raised through Relay For Life events support the American Cancer Society’s lifesaving work, like Hope Lodge facilities, which offer cancer patients a free place to stay, comfort, and support when they have to travel far from home for treatment.  

Too many people, including possibly someone you or I know, will be diagnosed with cancer this year. A Relay For Life event is our opportunity to inspire hope by raising funds and awareness to help those facing the disease. I hope you will join me!

On April 20th, Relay for Life will be holding it's annual 24hr relay walk at Nipomo high school.

I have started the "Team Nipomo Rotary" and need your assistance in meeting our team goal of raising 1000.00 toward finding a cure.

I have pledged 100.00 so we are only 900.00 away!

Don't worry, I'm not asking everyone to walk for 24hrs straight, only the past Presidents (just kidding!).

It only costs 10.00 to join the team so please help out if you can.

Our team will not be limited to Rotarians so please invite your friends to join our team and help us reach our 1000.00 goal.

The Nipomo Kiwanis are already at 830.00 so we have a little catching up to do!

You will be receiving a separate invite from me and if you sign up before this Wednesday meeting maybe the Easter bunny will have a special treat for you!

See you all soon.

Dear Members,

Due to your Presidents chaotic schedule and too many irons in the fire, the Poker Run that was scheduled for Sunday March 17th has been changed to a St Patrick's Day celebration party.

Bring your family and friends out to Monarch Dunes and enjoy a simple afternoon of corned beef and cabbage, green beer and good times with your Rotary Family.

This will not be a pot luck but if you have a favorite St Patrick's day dish or dessert that you would like to share please do so.

Party will begin at 2pm, Sunday March 17th at Monarch Dunes.

Please RSVP to me via email so I have a head count.

Have a great day!

Hello fellow pancake makers and servers,

Tomorrow morning I hope to see your smiling faces at Nipomo high school for the annual Renaissance Pancake breakfast.
We will be starting at 6:30 (whew!) but if you want to sleep in and not show up until a little later it's ok. You may get fined or receive a special award for being the last one to show up so be careful.
Have a great day!

Dear Members,

Last weeks Valentine's Celebration was once again a fun filled morning full of laughs and good fellowship.

I think Jim Anderson has found a new profession as a game show host! Should we change his classification?

Thank you Judy and Cathy for planning another great event!

And of course thank you to all the contestants and their spouses for participating!

We have several community events coming up in March so show your true Rotary spirit and volunteer to help out at as many as you can.

After all, that is what we do!

Here are a couple of events to look forward to in March.

--    Friday March 1st : Renaissance pancake breakfast at Nipomo High School. Show up at 6:30am and join the pancake making fun!

--    Sunday March 3rd: Help support South County Special Olympics by attending their Annual BBQ dinner, silent auction and raffle.
3:00pm - 5:00pm St Joseph's Church. 298 S. Thompson Ave. Nipomo. 12.00 per person includes tri-tip & chicken dinner.
Call 544-6444 for tickets or email sanluisobispo@sosc.org

--    Saturday March 9th and Sunday March 10th:
BBQ fundraiser for "The Polished Pet" in the Miners parking lot. Sign up sheets will start this week.

--    Sunday March 17th: Poker run for Polio fundraiser. 10:00am at Monarch Dunes. 25.00 to play.

Dear Members,

January was a great kick-off month for The Rotary Club of Nipomo.

We had some great speakers including our very own 4th district supervisor Paul Teixeira, who gave us an update on what's happening in the county and around Nipomo.
Dan Thompson got us educated on the future changes of health care reform.
We learned from Tom Puerling of Heli-Cal that parts manufactured right here in Santa Maria have made it to Mars on several different missions.
Last week Odell Lee talked to us about his career in the CIA and shared some great stories with us.

So what's coming up you ask?

This Saturday is the STEPS to Eliminate Poverty Sustainably at UC Santa Barbara. Registration and breakfast start at 8:00am.
All the information is on the Rotary District 5240 website or contact Bill Pucciarelli for more information.

Next Wednesday you will have the privilege of Past President Cathy Cachu running the meeting! There may be some monkey business going on so it should be fun! The guest speaker will be Jim Talbott from SMOOTH transportation in Santa Maria.

Then comes the Superbowl party!
Come join the Streator's at 2:00 Superbowl Sunday for some good ole BBQ ribs, drinks and football.
Should be a great game!

On Monday February 4th, Rotary Club of Santa Maria South is celebrating their 40th year club anniversary. RSVP by February 1st to President Jane Kokkinakis at janek@russco.com if you are interested in attending.

Then on Wednesday the 6th we will be meeting at the Dana Adobe to see the progress that been made since our last club visit.

Everyone have a great weekend!

Mike

Thank you to all the members (and a few family members and friends) for Christmas Caroling this last week.
We have one more evening of caroling this Thursday evening so be sure to join us and put a smile on some very deserving faces.
Special thanks to Joyce Chrisman for scheduling the visits and making all 44 blankets for the residents of the care centers.
Great job Joyce!!!

Our Rotary Christmas party last Saturday night was once again a big hit.
Special thanks to Jim and Suni Mills for opening up their home to our club and hosting a great party!

Dear Members,

Thank you to all the members who participated this last weekend and provided many local Nipomo families with a wonderful Thanksgiving dinner.
Special thanks to Paul Teixeira and Ken Whittle for taking the lead in providing this great service to our community.

The picture in the Adobe next week will probably show a long line of Nipomo Lions serving the meals to the community, but it was the Rotary club members who were up at the crack of dawn preparing the turkeys, setting up the tables and chairs in the church, decorating, and working in the kitchen in preparation for the event. Our Rotary Club ROCKS!

This Wednesday we will have a "short" meeting at The Cypress Ridge Pavilion and afterwards all of you that can help with the turkey pull in Pismo Beach would be appreciated.

Dress appropriately for the occasion, you might get a little grease on your shoes!

I'll see you all on Wednesday!

Dear Members,

Thank you to all the members that participated in the "Stomp for Innovation" barbeque last Saturday night. We had a great showing of Rotarians and helped the Lucia Mar Foundation for Innovation have a very successful fundraiser.

Our own member Paul Teixeira turned a little purple during the event and hopefully we will have a little footage of the "Stomp-off" to share with those of you that couldn't make the event.

Come join us this Wednesday morning at Blacklake and welcome Santa Maria Breakfast Rotary clubs current president Chris Hastert to the center stage. Chris will be our guest speaker and is the general manager of the Santa Maria public airport.

Chris has offered to book our two clubs a private flight to Vegas for an "after hours step-down party" next year in June.

It's too bad the plane only seats two people.....I wonder who he will take with him?

Come on Chris, we have time to find a bigger plane, don't we?

Anyway, back to business.

Also at our meeting on Wednesday, Ken Whittle will give us an update on this next Saturday's community Thanksgiving event which is sure to be a huge success.

The following Wednesday, November 21st, we will be meeting at the Cypress Ridge Pavilion.

There will be no program that day, but get ready to get your hands greasy again.

It's the annual Pismo Beach Police Officers Association Thanksgiving dinner and we have been once again honored with pulling apart 2800 lbs of turkeys for the event. That's right 2800 lbs!.

Directly after breakfast we will head to the Pismo Beach Veterans hall and start preparing the birds for dinner.

If you haven't had the fun of turkey pulling then you sure won't want to miss this event.

I hope to see you all this Wednesday!

For those of you that missed this weeks meeting, I announced that our club is helping the Lucia Mar Foundation for Innovation's fundraiser "Stomp for innovation" by barbequing the chicken and toasting the bread for the event.

The event is will take place from 5pm to 8:30pm at the Edwards Barn tomorrow evening.

Please come by and lend a hand if you have time.

You don't need to be on the BBQ team to participate!

I will make sure we have some cold beer on hand and maybe a bottle of wine (or two).

Our very own Paul Teixeira is going to stomp some grapes in a contest so let's all show up and support him.

Hope to see you tomorrow!

Hello Members,

Tomorrow is a big day for Nipomo!
The Willow Road extension is finally completed and should be open to traffic on Saturday the 27th.
They will be having a ribbon cutting tomorrow afternoon at 3:00 and a reception following at the Edwards Barn.
Our club along with the Nipomo Chamber will be hosting the event so if you have the opportunity to help out in the afternoon that would be wonderful!
The event is from 3 - 6 PM and we could use a little help between 3:30 - 4:00 to assemble some sandwiches if any of you have time.

Also, this Saturday in the Miners parking lot, we are making 700 Tri-Tip sandwiches for the Dorothea Lange School fundraiser so if you have some time in the morning swing by and lend a hand. All we have to do is cook and slice the meat and the parents of the students are doing the rest. If you can't work it, at the least come by for some coffee and donuts and show your support for the BBQ crew.

I hope to see each of you at some point over the weekend. If not, have a great weekend and I will see you next Wednesday back at Blacklake.

Hello Rotarians,

October is heating up in Nipomo and our club is busy, busy, busy.

This Saturday "A Taste of Italy" is set to be a great event so I wish all of you that purchased tickets the best of luck! Show up and lend your fellow Rotarians a hand and enjoy a fun evening in Nipomo.

And just a quick reminder that we will be meeting at "The Hideout Coffee Shop" in Nipomo next Wednesday instead of Blacklake.

Guess what then?
Next Friday is the ribbon cutting for the Willow road extension and we have been summoned to BBQ for about 100-125 guests at the Edwards barn. The Chamber is going to be there to help so it should be a fun event.
I'll have more details by next Wednesday's meeting but plan on a few hours in the afternoon / evening to help out if you can.

We are so good we should be able to do this one with our eyes closed!

Then, once again, on Saturday the 27th we will be helping out Dorothea Lange Elementary by cooking some tri-tip in the Miner's parking lot.
All we are doing is cooking / cutting the tri-tip and bread. The parents and students are assembling the sandwiches so a hand full of Rotarians should be all we need to handle this one. If you can't make the morning shift then at least come by and buy a sandwich for lunch!

Have a great weekend and I'll see you all next Wednesday.

Hello Rotarians,

Our Rotary family picnic on Sunday was a fun time for all!
What a great Sunday afternoon!

The beer was cold and the weather was perfect!
Thank you all for sharing your favorite dishes and deserts! Great food!!!!

I would like to personally thank Cees and Ilona Dobbe for opening their beautiful home to our club.
We are extremely lucky to have such wonderful members and they are the best!

Also a big thank you to Cathy and Judy, my favorite party planners. You girls rock!

And a HUGE thank you to Jim Mills for cooking some great chicken and ribs! Finger lick'in good Jim!

Boy did we have some heavy competition going on in the Corn Hole game.

At the end of the day it all came down to this: "Ringers" Barry and Jerry -VS- "Sandbaggers" Harry and Dan.
Boy was it a harry ending (no pun intended Harry).
Every time Barry would throw one in the hole, Harry would top him. Every time Dan would think he had a point, Jerry would smirk and tame his thoughts with some crazy shot.
When all was said, the 2012 Corn Hole Champions are Barry and Jerry, congratulations! You are true champions!

This Wednesday we will have the drama club as our guest speakers.
So..... If you need a little drama in your life.... See you Wednesday!!!

One last reminder.
This coming Saturday is Oktoberfest in the park and we are barbecuing so let Richard Dale know if you can help out.
It's always a great way to spend the day!!!!!

Have a great day!

Hello Members,

I hope you all had a great weekend and caught up on some sleep because October is going to be a busy month for our club!

Last weekend Bill Pucciarelli, Harry Walls and myself set off to the district conference on the Queen Mary and even with the 405 shutdown we all made it there without raising our blood pressure.

Speaking of blood pressure, this Thursday, October 4th, there will be a blood drive in the Von's parking lot. Cee's will throw out a reminder to us tomorrow morning. This is an easy way of giving back, do it if you can!

Harry will also give us an update on the district conference at tomorrows meeting that the queen herself would be proud of. Ha!

This coming Sunday, October 7th, is our Rotary family picnic. Bring out the family and enjoy the afternoon with some fun and games.
Cathy Cachu will make her final announcement tomorrow and if you haven't heard about it by now you might as well go back into hibernation for the winter.

Then, just when you thought you heard it all, Octoberfest is here! On Saturday, October 13th, the good' ole Rotary BBQ team will be cookin' up some fancy BBQ for all of Nipomo to enjoy! Led this year by our own infamous BBQ'ER Richard Dale, we should have one heck of a cook out. Richard will be passing around a sign up sheet at tomorrows meeting so put your name on the list and help out!

Don't relax just yet. A Taste of Italy will be on Saturday, October 20th.This is our second largest fundraiser for the year.
Have you sold your tickets yet? Paul Teixeira is trying to set a record this year so any unsold tickets hand off to him. JUST KIDDING!
We should get an update at tomorrows meeting, right? Tammi? Cathy? Paul? Anyone with info stand up and be heard!

And then, just when you thought you could breath, another BBQ! On October 27th we will be doing a fundraiser for Dorothea Lange Elementary. We only need to cook, not serve. This one should be a breeze. I just need a volunteer to step up and run it for me, any takers?

Also this month, our DG, Frank Ortiz will be at our meeting on October 31st. Let's all show up for this meeting and greet him with the respect he deserves.

Lastly, our guest speaker this week is from Mike Brown from COLAB. It should be an interesting presentation. I will see you all in the morning!

We have a last minute speaker change for tomorrows meeting and if you like ice cream you better not miss it.

Have a great afternoon and see you all in the morning.

Hello Rotarians,

What a great meeting this morning!

I can personally say that when our club hands over a 3000.00 check to an organization that helps our wounded active military soldiers, we should all feels good inside.
These solders paid the ultimate price for protecting our freedom and we are all in debt to them.

Special thanks to Van Curaza and John O'Connell of Operation Surf, for all you do to help our wounded solders heal.

What a great organization!

I would like to re-cap a little on this past weekends Hospice Hoedown BBQ.

Paul Teixeira did a wonderful job organizing the event and we fed 350+ people!

We had 22 members plus a few spouses show up to work the event and it was truly a wonderful day! Great job Nipomo Rotary!

Special thanks to Bill Pucciarelli for feeding all the members lunch. Boy there was some hungry vultures around the pit when it came time to eat. Great food Bill!

I would also like to thank Colette for jumping in her car and making an emergency "chicken run" to Morro Bay. We might have suffered a pecking from the crowd if we ran out of chicken! Good call Chicken Anderson, I mean Jim.

We also learned a valuable lesson.
Jim Mills should have been properly trained in how to slice bread BEFORE cutting off his finger.
But somehow his finger grew back by this morning. Could Jim be part lizard?

Two last notes.

This Saturday we will be having a roadside cleanup at 8:00AM. Meet in the Jocko's parking lot and Jim Mills will give you your assignment.

The board meeting date has been changed to Monday August 20th at 5:30PM at my house.

Have a great weekend!

Hello Rotarians,

What a great day!

I would like to thank all the members who showed up at the fairgrounds this morning for my second meeting.
It's always nice to get a glimpse of where our clubs hard earned money is going and I think we all agree that supporting our local youth at the fair is a great way of doing so. The kids work hard raising their animals and earn every penny they make off the auction.

Special thanks to Judy Henbury for some great donuts, coffee and juice. Now that's what I call a breakfast of champions!!!! Thanks Judy!!!

Dave Wright did a great job telling us about the fair, it's history, and plans for the future. You won't find a nicer gentleman than Dave.

The fair CEO, Dennis Pearson was even there to give the new Rotary president (me) a little grief for the short 72hr notice of our meeting.
I thought being a fair sponsor should have a little pull but I guess next year when they call me for my contribution I'll need an additional 72hrs to make up my mind! Ha! Now this is fun!

Thank you to Dennis for getting us free parking and admission.

I would like to say you all looked good in your jackets!

There was some rattling in the crowd by the three "J's" (Jim Anderson, Jim Harrison & James Mills) about how I resembled Jorge
the goat. Cees quickly fined them 5.00 each and they abruptly quieted down. Good job Cees. This could be a long year for the three J's.

Jim Harrison indicated early on that he wanted to buy the fine free badge for the month of July but was quickly outbid by Ken Whittle for 55.00. Good job Ken! Oh, I mean sorry Jim, don't be such a tight wad and you could have owned it! That goat comment might haunt you Jim. Ha!

Now back to business. This Saturday night we are barbequing for the AGHS 20 year class reunion. Bill Pucciarelli is heading it up and does need some more help! Please call him for details. 264-4033.

Next week we are back at Blacklake so bring your smiles and wallets. Cees will be wearing his new hat!!!!
Have a great weekend everyone!

Sincerely,
Your President
Mike

Hello all you wonderful Nipomo Rotarians!

What a great kick off to a new Rotary year we had on the 4th of July! Thank you all for attending my first meeting, all I can say is WOW, that was a fun! I am looking forward to a great year as your new president.

I would like to give special thanks to Sean Sure for cooking up some great burgers and dogs, and all the rest of you for sharing your great side dishes. Boy we had some great food! This Rotary Club sure knows how to party!

My secret panel of judges has picked the winners for best patriotic dressed male and female candidates.
Their names will be announced at my first meeting at Blacklake on July 18th in a special presentation. Thank you all for showing off your Red-White and Blue!

I have two announcements for the upcoming week.

My first board meeting will be next Monday, July 9th at 5:30. It will be at my house and there will be food and drinks for all so please let me know if you plan on attending.

Next Wednesday we will have another offsite meeting. We will be meeting at the Santa Barbara County fairgrounds and our speaker / tour guide will be David Wright. He will give us some fair history and a tour of the fairgrounds. Wear your cowboy boots and maybe I can arrange for you to ride a steer or a goat. Just kidding...

There is one simple rule to get FREE parking and Free admission into the fairgrounds.

You MUST wear you blue Rotary jacket, it's that simple. That is your ticket in. Let's see how many Rotarian's can remember that rule. If you forget to wear your jacket it will cost you 5.00 to park and 1.00 admission plus a HUGE fine following week. Show off your Rotary blue and wear your jacket!!!!

I will send out the parking and meeting details in another email on Monday because I am simply tired of typing and I'm sure you are tired of reading this letter. Have a fantastic weekend!!!

Dear Members,

This is my first official email to you as your new club president!

I would like to congratulate Cathy for such a wonderful year and to wish her the best in her retirement! Ha!

I would like to remind everyone that we will NOT be meeting at Blacklake this Wednesday. If you show up for breakfast at Blacklake this Wednesday I'm sorry to say but you will probably be eating alone.

We WILL be meeting at my house this Wednesday at 4:30pm and the official bell will ring at 5:00pm.

This is a social event, so be festive and wear your best red, white and blue attire. Hamburgers and hotdogs will be the official meal of the afternoon so if you would like to bring your favorite side dish or desert and share with everyone that would be great.

Spouses and friends are all welcome, just let me know if you are coming so I can provide everyone with a seat!

Lastly, I am saddened to say that Cathy's sheriff department award which was left behind at her step down party has not shown up yet. I am offering a 100.00 reward for it's safe return, no questioned asked. If the person who "borrowed" it would like to remain anonymous, please just return it and we will not file charges.

I look forward to another great year in Rotary!

Mike Streator
Rotary Club of Nipomo

Dear Members:

Somewhat quiet weekend for our club. Here's what's happening this week . . .

Tickets to the event are $25. First showing is at 6:30pm. Sorry for the late notice. If you are interested, I can send you the attachment.
3. Don’t forget our Joke Challenge. In lieu of our Rotary Moment this week, we will open it up to our joke challenges . . . as we will need to decide which one we are going to use at the JOINT MEETING the following week!

Fellow Rotarians:
 
Another exciting week in Rotary.

Move over I-HOP . . . there's a new player in town. 

The Nipomo Rotary Club has found a new talent . . . the art of making pancakes.  With over 400 NHS students being rewarded with a Pancake breakfast for earning GPAs of 3.0 or higher, the Nipomo Rotarians were tasked with cooking & serving over 800+ pancakes.  Our Pancake Crew started the morning at 6:15am and were ready to serve the students by 8:00am.  Great Job Rotarians!

It was a beautiful afternoon in Nipomo, and all was well with the world.  Until...   5 PM, the Simons barn when the best and the beautiful of Nipomo Rotary started arriving to applaud, bless themselves and be thankful for the removal of our current dictator, the X president formerly know as Ingmar.  Fun was had by all with Sheriff Simons and at least 6 deputies keeping a vigilant accounting of the movements of our former fallen President.  After a great dinner and a few libations during the evening the "Step Down" officially started with the arrest of the varmint Ingmar.  Nipomo is certainly not south of Pecos, we do however have a hanging Judge, a prosecutor, a sheriff, a Nun in a brown bear suit and of course the defense lawyer, our very own young and vibrant new president Cathy.  As an unbiased observer, I have to say Cathy was no less than hot in her boots.   I digresses.  As the crowd was calling for the lynching of the hand cuffed rascal Ingmar, cooler heads prevailed and X president Ingmar is still with us today, it was a close decision though and will probably be debated for years to come.

Take a look at the pics on the net, thanks to Guy 

 For those not in attendance, you missed a great party and send off of President Ingmar, his emotional hand shake with the X First Lady brought tears to, well, I'm sure brought tears someone's eyes.

It's that time of year again when we celebrate, finally, the stepdown of our current fearless leader Ingmar.  This evening will be marked with frivolity, libations and of course long boring speeches.  In a effort to mitigate any misgivings by our current president, he has appropriately been left out of the planning for this event, well, honestly we wanted to make sure it was a success.  Bill Bettencourt, planner, ex President, world traveler and pole dancer will be the MC for the evening as well as our token portage.  Lets say thank you now to Richard Simons, he has generously agreed to host this swore at his luxury barn and sometimes cat house in Nipomo.   Remember since Ingmar is the closest thing we have to a real cowboy, western duds will be mandatory for all you bulls, heifors and Paul Texeria.

 This event will be on Sunday June 26th, the evening will start at 5:00 with a much needed attitude adjustment and then at 6:00 a buffet dinner featuring, Prime Rib, Chicken Marsala and Cajun Salmon.   Please RSVP to very own pole dance, Bill Bettencourt at; betnqt61@charter.net or 805-473-2849

By 1pm and 90 plus degrees the lunch tables boards were replaced, the tetherball was welded. Mike Streators dad Jack showed up and helped with the welding. Mike, thank you for loading and bringing out the welder and doing the job working off the ladder in the front of the school while the rest of the crew was in the back. The lunch tables boards were replaced by a crew that included members with Valley Fever, one with a bad back and another who dangerously overheated, all of whom had other things to do that day. Jim Harrison provided some of the boards, Lucia Mar provided the rest plus the paint. Thank you to Mike E. and Jim for routing, priming and painting the boards ahead of time. The Principal Brett Gimlin was there the entire day and worked very hard to improve the things for the kids at the school. A big thank you to Mike Eisner, Jim Harrision, Mike Streator and Jack, Lou Gomez, Jerry Arseneau, and Doug Marohn for quite a day. Ingmar Lauringson Rotary Club of Nipomo

Two clubs in Korea have set stellar examples for how to achieve the ambitious membership goal set by RI President Dong Kurn Lee this year. 

The Rotary clubs of Gwangju-Ibseog in Gwangju and Iri Dong in Jeonrabug held activities outside of club meetings to reach potential -- and in some cases, younger -- members. Both clubs exceeded their membership goals for the 2007-08 Rotary year.

The Gwangju-Ibseog club nearly doubled its membership, from 69 to 132 members. During 2007-08, club president Sang Kwon Kim emphasized the importance of recruiting new members at every meeting. He asked members to promote Rotary to other organizations they were affiliated with, such as chambers of commerce. Once qualified candidates were identified, the entire club pitched in to support recruiting efforts. Members who brought in three or more new members received special recognition. 

The club also targeted younger members by organizing with golf and hiking groups. Informal fellowship events held after weekly meetings provided an additional opportunity for members to bond.

Focus on fellowship

With a similar focus on fellowship, the Iri Dong club grew from 112 to 152 members in 2007-08. Club leadership sponsored committees dedicated to golf, soccer, hiking, and other athletics.

Both clubs also encouraged members to participate in each other's family events, such as weddings, to promote unity. 

"It is not easy to manage a club with 132 members," Kim says. "However, with the help from past presidents and members, we continue to develop new management techniques for larger clubs. It was a very rewarding year."

Lee aims to increase membership worldwide from 1.2 to 1.3 million members in 2008-09.
