President’s Letter – September 22, 2015

Fellow Rotarians,

Many events have happened since our last regular meeting.  The Group 8 Event at the Polo Grounds Sunday September 13 was a big success.  For Kirk and I it was our first time watching Polo.  Very interesting.  We mingled with many Rotarians from other Group 8 clubs plus our DG Jim Bell and his wife.

Jenna Driscoll our Rotaract Rep. asked that the upcoming Heart walk be announced again. Please consider donating to the Rotaract group at this link.  http://heartwalkbayarea.kintera.org/faf/search/searchTeamPart.asp?ievent=1126410&lis=1&kntae1126410=FF2DB1A09A34406597150B957EB27C90&team=6393377&tlteam=0.  There is still time to donate.

Also the Rotaract Minature Golf Event on the 18th and 19th at the SB Courthouse was another fun event.  I lost to Kirk.  Saw our Sunrise friends Gary and Cheryl Jensen playing also. Met several Rotaracters.  The $5 donation was for the Rotaract fundraiser for the SB Courthouse Foundation.

The Club Picnic on Friday the 18th was another fun event.  We had about 50 people come.  Unfortunately we missed some who could not show at the last minute and those who did not register.  It was a beautiful evening with great camaraderie.

District 5240 Conference is in Bakersfield on October 2-4.  I have signed up.  Have you?  Y’all come! Remember that DG Jim Bell is ready for us all to have fun!

Social Hour will be at Café Stella.  Hope to see you all there.
