Thanks to his week's correspondent:

This is a Spoke Special Edition!

Quite honestly, due to Extenuating circumstances, this edition is a bit late- but, better late than never!
Invocation – Jim Baldwin
Flag Salute – Pete Pankey
Song – Steve Illingworth (Take Me Out to the Ball Game to celebrate the start of another baseball season)
About this week's guest editor Dave Turner:
Dave is an award winning custom home builder and remodeler, offering full service from design and finish selections through project completion. Hence his longtime slogan, “Raising the Standard.”
Good News / Announcements:
We welcomed New Members: 
Jerene Battisti, past president of the Seattle club and super achiever
and Chris Machado, CEO of Circle M Truck Repair.

Visiting Rotarian – Nick Righetti – North

Garro Ellis – Saturday is the District Assembly 9:30-12:30 – Location not mentioned.  Anyone in a current or anticipated leadership role is encouraged to attend.

Pete Pankey – suggested a commendation to the wonderful performance of the Star Spangled Banner by local youth at the All-Area Meeting.

Shawn Shambaugh announced the arrival of his second grandchild, congratulations!

Steve Roach thanked our Rotarians who participated in the Leadership and Ethics Conference, making it a great event.

Michelle Chantry is no longer with the newspaper whose name she couldn’t remember and is now the CEO of Western Valve.  Mike Willis suggested she’d make a good Spoke editor with her journalism background.


Today’s program was presented by Dr. Jorge Enrique of CSF Medical Non-Profit Foundation, a 501(C)(3) non-profit organization.  CSF Foundation helps low-income families in need to receive life-changing surgery or disease prevention that would otherwise be out of their reach due to financial resources and/or other multiple causes.  CSF Foundation pays the total or partial cost of surgery and provides a discounted fee arrangement for other services.

CSF bridges the gap between low-income individuals who do not qualify or cannot afford health insurance, and medical and surgical services institutions, thereby changing and saving lives. There are over three-million uninsured in California, 64,000 in Kern County, most of which are too young for Medicare, too rich for MediCal, or too poor to afford private insurance.

CSF Foundation obtains proceeds from fundraising events, private donations, and community support.  80% of donations are used in local patients, and 20% of donations go to other counties. 

Questions can be directed to CSF Foundation at 661.404.4748 or www.csffoundation.org.
You couldn't ask for a nicer pair of greeters, Stan Eschner and Andy Barkate.
Welcome Chris Machado and future Spoke editor.
Welcome new Downtown  Rotary member, Jerene Battisti, past president of the Seattle club and super achiever.
Another future Spoke editor Michelle Chantry announced her new job has nothing to do with journalism.
