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 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.
