Kenny's Words of Wisdom:
Ken placed his 11-year-old girl's soccer team as one of the GOATs. And by association, himself as a GOAT coach.
Then shortly later, he shattered his own delusion by revealing their team lost in the finals.
Did you know:
President Ken recognized Rotary members Kristin Barnes Watson, Dr. Lynn Zelezny, Karen Goh, and Mary Barlow for being featured as Bakersfield's women leaders during Women's History Month. Side note, Karen was the only one who appeared to be wearing their Rotary pin. No fines were issued.
Ashley Sodergren received her Paul Harris Fellow pin, congratulations, money well spent.
President Ken was the featured speaker at the Rotary of Santa Maria meeting, his talk about "How to Recruit Millenials" was so highly anticipated, one of the members watched it on his private plane on a flight home from Aspen. How's that for an in-flight movie!?
In-person meetings should resume on April 8th. They will be held at the outdoor patio area at Sundale Country Club. All the precaution boxes are being checked to do so safely. You should have received a survey in your email inbox. Please fill it out and return it (It's only a few questions) So that Ken can get a ballpark number of members expected to attend these in-person meetings. We will also be simulcasting the meeting on Zoom, so there's no excuse to miss a meeting!
Shawn Kelly announced he has twin granddaughters- congratulations! He's now an 11-time granddad.
Pat Collins in honor of St. Patrick's Day, March 17th, Pat told some classic Irish jokes that were mildly funny. Here's one of the better ones:
An Irish priest is driving along a country road when a policeman pulls him over.
He immediately smells alcohol on the priest's breath and notices an empty wine bottle in the car.
He says: "Have you been drinking?"
"Just water," says the priest.
The cop replies: "Then why do I smell wine?"
The priest looks at the bottle and says: "Good Lord! He's done it again!"


Brad Barnes introduced our speakers, Paul Long founder of Kappa Studios, a major one-stop-shop post-production studio, and his friend and colleague, Brad Silverman.
We watched a video that documented what led Paul to come to terms with his life, business, and faith.
Paul brought Brad on full time to assist with Kappa Studios, bring top-notch post-production to Hollywood, only now, their priority would be to glorify God through their work.
By doing so they lost a lot of business. People didn't like this faith-based business. But through prayer, they started attracting a new clientele that didn't have a problem with their faith. In fact, many were thrilled to be doing business with them. Around that same time, they started producing their own shows, including the successful streaming show about Christ called "The Chosen".
MovieGuide has this to say about The Chosen; “There’s little doubt that THE CHOSEN will soon become one of the most well-known and celebrated pieces of Christian media in history.”
Paul elaborated some more about his personal walk with God as well.
