At today‚Äôs meeting, we had the pleasant surprise of Sean Sure announcing a well-deserved honor of one of our very own Rotary Club of Nipomo members.  Mr. Jim Harrison was selected by the South County Chambers of Commerce as Citizen of the Year.  Anyone who knows Jim knows of his passion to give back to the community and he does so in many ways.  Congrats to Jim and a thank you for all he does for others! 
Recently we had two member spotlights where we learned a bit more about our new members.  Al Casey had a long and successful career in banking.  He shared some interesting stories from the old days when he was in branch management.  Bob Spelman experienced a long career in corporate credit collections, including a stint at a startup company named, Atari.  He and his wife moved here from the bay area and the just are loving life here. 
At our meeting yesterday, we had the honor and pleasure of a visit from our District Governor, Savi Bhrim. She gave a very fascinating talk on some of the early history of Rotary. For example, did you know this? During and after World War II, Rotarians became increasingly involved in promoting international understanding. In 1945, 49 Rotary members served in 29 delegations to the United Nations Charter Conference. Rotary still actively participates in UN conferences by sending observers to major meetings and promoting the United Nations in Rotary publications.
 
Governor Bhim acknowledged many of the accomplishments of our club. She appreciates the fact that we partner with students from the Nipomo High School Drama Club. Specifically, our recent fundraiser, Winner Winner Tri-tip Dinner, wherein we jointly raised about $25,000 that we split with the Drama Club.
 
When watching and listening to Governor Bhim speak, her passion for Rotary is just so very obvious. Especially when she speaks about the 4-way test. Her perspective is that the 4-way test should be "self-reflective" questions we always ask ourselves before speaking and acting. It can be a very powerful tool for self correcting.

Thank you Governor Bhim for visiting our club. You are always welcome at the Rotary Club of Nipomo! See pictures below of Governor Bhim and our president, Kelly Ricker.
 
Several of our members participated yesterday in making pancakes for Nipomo High School students.  My favorite thing was the "thank you" sign the students made for our club.  
  Nick Nickelson was our speaker this past Wednesday and what an honor it was to hear his story.  Nick was a Navy Seal in the 1960's and has published a book to record some of this important history.  His book is titled HOOYAH! UDT/SEAL Stories of the 1960's.
