We had the honor to sing our Past President, Richard Dale, Happy Birthday. We also had the pleasure of learning about the Morro Bay Maritime Museum from Larry Newland. Sounds like this would be a great day trip and learn some history and see how it connects to the Dana Adobe. I'm sure there is a connection somewhere.
10/28/18 We had an amazing event this year and thank all of our members, Boy Scout Troop 450 and the amazing Drama Department at Nipomo High School.
Today's guest speaker was Dr. Wen Chen. Wen was born in China during the Great Cultural Revolution. Being victims of the horrific atrocity that killed two million intellectuals and destroyed traditional Chinese culture, Wen's parents had mixed feelings about her education. Despite their discouragement, Wen eventually won a national prize at a science competition when she was 16. Hence, she was accepted into a top university for undergraduate study. In 1994, Wen came to the U.S. for graduate school and received a doctorate degree in Biology at California Institute of Technology in 2000. Dr. Chen currently works as a staff scientist for the institute. Because of her personal experience of being brainwashed in China, she decided to be a voice for the voiceless. Since 2012, she has given over 200 presentations to community organizations about Chinese culture, history, and human rights.
At today's meeting, we were honored to have Cees back from his month travels to Spain and Holland. He returned with a banner from the Rotary Club of Tarragona and a very long story. We also had a very exciting talented group of young students from Nipomo High School Drama Department that put on an amazing performance for us. 
On October 3, after our regular meeting, our District Governor, Sandy Schwartz, brought District Governor, Taek I1 Nam, from District 3721, Rotary Club of Yangsan, to Nipomo High School to see their Robotics Department. Nipomo High School Robotics students have competed nationally and internationally and have won many awards. The reason they are interested in the success of this program is they want to bring this program into a school in South Korea.
