Justin Acton of the Boulder Creek Business Association spoke to the group.  He is the proprietor of the Boulder Creek Pizzeria where he uses lots of his own-grown vegetables from his certified garden in Ben Lomond.  The BCBA is a community focussed group with 80-90 members and a very active Board of Directors.  They have been working over the past several years on the Cal Trans project to replace and upgrade the town streetlights and this has finally been completed with installation of "period-correct" lamps.  They meet monthly on the first Wednesday, 6pm at the IOOF Hall.

Today's meeting was dedicated to the Celebration of the 75th Wedding anniversary of our club Founder Gil Gunn and his bride of 75 years Marge.
 
President Mike commented:
 
Yo Fellow Rotarians and Traveling Fellow Rotarians -
 
Today's meeting went extremely well.  Gil and Marge seemed to enjoy themselves and were much appreciative of the attention focused on them and were grateful for the gifts and special recognition.  A special shout out to Heather, Karen, and Don for their help.
 
We were blessed with an abundance of visiting Rotarians including PDG Ron Sekkel and his wife Cindy, PDG John Fisher, John and Jeannie Kegebein, and Jim and Marie Sikora.  John and Ron said some nice words for Gil and Marge.  We then had the opportunity to pepper the Gunns with questions about their 75 years of wedded bliss.
 
And the old Bistro didn't look too bad with Don's banner, Heather's balloons, and Karen's cupcakes and BIG CARD.
 
Thanks to all who were in town and able to come and we'll tell all you "making up" Rotarians about it when you return.
 
See you all next week!
 
Peace,
Mike
