"Paso Robles Glass collaborated with local businesses and the Atascadero Rotary to donate and install about 20 new windows at the El Camino Homeless Organization (ECHO) shelter in Atascadero.

Jarred Damigos, president of Paso Robles Glass, said replacing the existing windows with dual pane means better energy efficiency for the shelter because they help block the heat and cold." New Times article Nov. 16. 

Former Atascadero Rotarian Don Vert managed the project on behalf of Paso Robles Glass.

What is the Rotary Spinning Wheel all about. The concept is if a Rotarian failed to attend the regular meeting and didn’t make up at another club then at the next meeting they are invited to spin the rotary wheel and pay the amount on which the arrow stops. 
 
For years our old spinner was used. It was so old no one remembers who built it. And now here is the new one that Art Everett has built for our club. Thank you Art!
 
 

 
Just thought you might want to know what your fellow Rotarians are doing in the community.  Give Ryan a high five next time you see him. f you (or anyone you know) would like to host a Mobile Career Day, just let me know (2 to 6 students).
