The Rotary Club of Atascadero awarded one of Rotary's highest honors to two long time club members at their meeting on February 20th.  The Paul Harris Fellow is an acknowledgement of an individual who has made a significant contribution to Rotary.  The first recipient was Rich Johnson who has served for many years as the club's vocational service director.  Under his leadership he has implemented and expanded the club's vocational service activities. 
The second recipient was long time Rotarian John Sanders.  You can always find John working in the background at club events as part of the BBQ crew or anything else he is asked to do. John's hard work and friendship are highly valued by our club membership.

Rotary marches in the Long Walk Home in Atascadero...

The Echo homeless shelter hosted the Long Walk home on August 24th in an effort to raise awareness of homelessness in San Luis Obispo County. The march represents the walk the homeless population makes every day in their search for permanent housing. We marched to support Echo here in Atascadero, the only homeless shelter in the North County of San Luis Obispo.

Graduating Atascadero, Paloma Creek and Morro Bay High School Seniors along with many family members attended our meeting on August 8th to receive their awards. Each was given an opportunity to share with us their future goals.
