Bruce Howard asked if anyone had any idea how many Americans were infected by polio. The answer: a quarter of a million. He then asked if anyone know who the first doctor to administer a polio vaccine and the year he did it? It was Dr. Jonas Salk in 1954. Finally, does anyone know the name of the competing doctor who did a live virus? His name was Albert Sabin. 

In 1978-79 Rotary started a program in the Philippines to eradicate polio. It was only conducted in the Philippines and was a 5 year project. It was the first Health, Hunger and Humanity (3H) Grant that Rotary did. About 6 million children were immunized against polio, at a cost of about $760,000. The funds for 3H Grants come from your Annual Fund donations. So, everything related to Polio started with the Annual Fund. In 1984 Dr. Albert Sabin spoke to the Rotary Convention and commended rotary on the wonderful job they did in the Philippines. He said, if you guys were really good, you would take on the world. RI figured it would cost around $125 million to eradicate polio world-wide. About a quarter of a billion dollars was raised by Rotary through the Annual Fund. When we started the program, there was over 1,000 new cases in the world per day. Today we have had just 2 cases of the wild cases of the polio virus so far this year. About 19 million people today don’t have polio today because of our efforts! Please keep up your support! 

 

Cynthia Woodruff-Neer introduced the talented middle schoolers who won this year’s 4-Way Essay Contest. The essays were written during the month of February. A committee consisting of Sue Robinson, Julie Jenkins, Nancy McKarney and Cynthia. Cynthia then introduced Mr. Donaldson, Language Arts teacher at Santa Lucia Middle School. This is his 3rd year advising on this project and it was challenging during virtual learning. Mr. Donaldson thanked us for doing this and helping to pull it off during a COVID year. It wasn’t easy and the participation was less than desirable but he is sure they will come back pretty strong next year. The award money is a great motivation and it is great that we link this sort of opportunity to money and excelling at things like this will eventually lead to exactly that. Thank you all, also, for the volleyball grant. We are going to try to pull off our volleyball camp run by Mr. Donaldson and some high school students. Volleyball is a thing in Cambria and it has been strong for years now. 

We are pleased to announce the winners of the contest: 

3rd Place: Launa Hedding 

2nd Place: Anna Schalk 

1st Place: Juan Urbina 

The winners will each receive a certificate and cash prizes: $100 for 1st place, $75 for 2nd and $50 for 3rd. The students were also encouraged to consider joining Interact when they reach high school. 

Peace Essay Winners 

Julie Jenkins told us that in December we reached out to Sarah Johnston, English teacher, to ask whether she was interested in coordinating a Peace Essay Contest for her students. As the daughter of Rotarians, she embraced the idea immediately but needed to figure out how to work it into the year’s course work. It fit best into the “inquiry” module that was coming up in February (it wasn’t ideal but the best option had already been completed in the Fall). I sourced a few ideas from Rotary’s website for Sarah’s consideration. We told her that our committee would work within whatever guidelines were needed in order to achieve the purpose of the module—no length requirements. Students were not required to submit their assignments to the contest but 15 did. All 8 members of the committee read the 15 essays and submitted their selections for first, second and third place. In parallel with the Four Way Test essay contest, we are awarding $100 for first place, $75 for second place and $50 for third place. As the Peacebuilders Committee has no budget, Cynthia has provided the prize money from the Youth Services budget. Sarah explained that, as seniors during the pandemic, it has been a challenge to make sure they have all the things that they need and that are necessary as they move into the exciting next stage of life. The inquiry unit is about the best way to question, the best way to research and the best way to think critically about the bigger issues we have in the world, one of them being what is peace and what does peace mean to you. 

3rd Place: Diego Hernandez 

2nd Place: Viviana Nuñez 

1st Place: Jonathan Jewell

While enjoying some delicious Daou wines, Maeve told us that, as young men, brothers Georges and Daniel Daou shared the same dream: to live a life in wine. Their dream prevailed years later when they discovered what would become known as DAOU Mountain, an untapped world-class terroir in the Adelaida District of Paso Robles. Ever since, they have poured their souls into creating some of California's most noteworthy wines while cultivating a guest experience to match. In the end, DAOU is about family - and the truth that nothing brings people together like wine. The most beautiful expression of wine comes from terroir. In simplest terms, terroir is soil and climate. Great wines require exceptional terroir. DAOU Mountain is created from a very rare soil, calcareous clay. This soil, famously found in Saint-Émilion and the right bank of Bordeaux, is composed of clay with a calcareous and limestone subsoil perfect for growing Cabernet Sauvignon and Bordeaux varieties. This is the soil Georges and Daniel sought when they searched around the world for their dream vineyard. DAOU Mountain rises 2,200 feet in elevation in the hills of the Adelaida District on the west side of the Paso Robles AVA. With its steep mountain slopes of up to fifty-six percent, DAOU Mountain rises dramatically above the Coastal Range with breathtaking views from the highest winery on the Central Coast of California. The mountain is cooled by the Pacific Ocean, fourteen miles away, and gentle breezes that flow over the Templeton Gap. Warm, temperate days and cool nights guarantee even ripening and vine balance every year.

We all agreed, we could get used to this!

 

PE Patty Griffin started the presentation by asking everyone to submit a photo of themselves in the ‘70’s for our April contest.

Wade is currently the mayor of Carpinteria. But he can't be defined by just one title. He's been a BMX racing champion (5-times), Rotary leader who's traveled the world in the name of humanitarian service and is a Japanese American who's family has overcome discrimination. 

In Creating Destiny, he writes about the many ups and downs throughout life and how it made him who he is today. 

Times were tough for his family as Japanese Americans in the wake of World War II. His family was among those removed to interment camps in the Arizona desert, stripped of all their belongings and forced to start over when the war was over. 

Their struggles still weren’t over, with discrimination part of daily life. Wade was not allowed inside his friend’s homes because of nervous parents. “It was hard always being looked at with suspicion. In some ways the discrimination made me who I am – it made me work harder to prove myself,” he says. 

Wade hopes his book will inspire others to embrace community service. “It’s the most rewarding feeling, knowing you’ve played a part in improving someone else’s life forever,” he says. 

You can purchase Wade’s book at www.wadenomura.com/book. If you order it now, note on your order form that you are with Cambria Rotary. Wade and his wife, Debbie, will be delivering the books to Cambria on Friday, April 2nd. 

 

We are a Strong club...The Best Rotary Club in the World! We have accomplished, as a unit, an immeasurable amount of good for our friends, neighbors and so many of those in need here and around the world. Our Members are of all persuasions, talents and abilities that work in unison towards common positive goals. And we have all had the benefit of creating new friends and close relationships through the course of our Rotary actions. Having said that.... Attrition happens. It just happens for so many obvious reasons, no need to list. Strong clubs can dwindle all too quickly. To stay strong we need to work at adding new members to fill the gaps created by loss and to help keep the energy flowing so we can remain productive and beneficial to our community and the world. With that said... I want you each to remember how you were introduced to Rotary and some of your most enjoyable Rotary experiences. It can be a good time you had or a particularly satisfying experience. Nancy McKarney: was introduced to Rotary in 1988. The N. Hollywood Club named her a member before it was technically required. She became a member of Cambria Rotary in 1994. One memorable experience was taking a cruise to Puerta Vallarta with a whole gang of club members and being served paella by a group of Rotarians. 

Christel: Socorro Simons brought her to the club, and, as it turns out, all her best friends are members of Rotary now. She didn’t have mush of a social life in Cayucos because, where they lived, was mostly vacation rentals. Her most memorable experience was hanging out with the kids at RYLA where she was a counselor. 

Pres. Chuck: was introduced to Rotary back in Pittsburgh when he was a young attorney. He was encouraged by the older attorneys in his office to join and, quite frankly, he did not enjoy any of the meetings he attended. He thought, “who are these people singing songs and doing the pledge”. When he moved to Cambria in 2004, he was invited to a Rotary meeting and fell in love with our club specifically. 

Linda Sherman: she was introduced to Rotary in 2016, right after her husband passed away, by Joan Broadhurst. Shortly thereafter, Socorro knocked on her door and told her that she was coming to Rotary with her the next day. One of her most memorable experiences is what she is doing right now. She is restoring the history of our club going back to 1971. It has become quite an incredible project. 

Otis: Rotary actually sponsored him when he was in college. The Snyder Rotary Club even gave him a small stipend that really helped. His most memorable part is the fact that we are really his family! He still gets teary eyed when he thinks about the reception the club threw for him and Joe. 

Chuck DeVroede: In 1982 he was approached by Jim Siegel (?) from Cambria Electric. He felt he was too busy with his business but kept being approached by people asking when he was going to come to Rotary. He especially enjoys the comradery. 

Sue R.: This guy kept running around. He had a mustache and walked with a cane and he talked me into joining Rotary. What she loves and really misses the new member orientations where everyone lets their hair down and has a good time. But we will be doing it again. 

Dick & Bonnie: Bonnie moved to Cambria first and got started in Rotary because she had a business and wanted to give back. Dick’s sponsor was Bonnie. He had been a member of the Moorpark Club before moving to Cambria. His most memorable time has been in his role as Sheriff.

He also has a significant history of community involvement, via local economic development organizations, agricultural trade organizations, Cal Poly San Luis Obispo, local 4-H/FFA clubs and more. 

Higgins resides in San Simeon with his wife Rochelle and daughters Audrey and Mary. 

He was asked to speak today about the Sebastian’s building in Old San Simeon. The building was originally constructed in 1873. It is actually a building constructed from 2 separate buildings that were previously our at San Simeon Point. He told us about the plans to bring the building up to code while keeping the original layout. Once the permits are issued, the first thing they will do is raise the building and put in a new foundation. Right now the plan is to turn it back into a market likely with some “grab and go” food options. The tasting room will remain where it is, in the old Hearst warehouse. Plans are in place to install a kitchen and provide lunch and dinner options. 

Bake Sale

Youth Services Chair, Cynthia Woodruff-Neer, told us that she simply told the students the day and time for the bake sale and they took it from there. She told us to be prepared to be

impressed with the baked goods they created. She also thanked Bob Kasper for agreeing to, once again, be our auctioneer. He has been working with them throughout the week to come up with a way to do this virtually.

 

Cynthia introduced Interact students: Ava, Caiden, Crystal, Jasmine, Lissi, Sami, Shaidy, Violet,

Viviana and the Interact Advisor, Ayan Johnson.

 

After all the baked good were auctioned, the total raised was $3,255. Joan Broadhurst said she would like to donate an additional $45 to make the total an even $3,300. Then, Elaine Beckham told us that she is unable to each much in the way of sweets so didn’t bid on anything but she wanted to do her part so she donated $700, bringing the total to an amazing $4,000! As

Auctioneer, Bob Kasper said, this is why our club is the Best Rotary Club in the World!

 

San Luis Obispo County Sheriff Ian Parkinson was sworn into office on January 3, 2011. Parkinson's career in law enforcement in San Luis Obispo County began when he joined the Morro Bay Police Department in 1984. He transferred to the San Luis Obispo Police Department in 1988, where he rose to the rank of Captain, second in command of the department. 

The Sheriff began by telling us that they were able to clear out the Highway 1 and Cambria Drive homeless encampment just prior to the rain. The encampment filled up to about 6 feet of rain so a number of lives may have been saved by evacuating that area. 

This has been a very interesting year with COVID and our lives have been changed in many ways. We have all been on a roller coaster. There have been many changes to how it is dealt with. Deputies still have to be on the street and make contact. The jail has done a great job keeping the incidence down. 

We had 3 deputy involved shootings within a 4 month period which is unprecedented for our county. In all 3 cases, the suspect was killed and in 2 cases 2 of the deputies were shot. Both deputies suffered significant injuries with one being shot in the jaw and the other shot in the leg. He was pleased to report that both deputies are doing well and will hopefully return to the job soon. The downside of these events is the mental toll it takes on the deputies and the families of those injured. And the taking of a life can be difficult to deal with. 

Crime is up, but major crimes in January are down. There has been a increase over the past year in burglaries, theft, and property crimes possibly caused by the economy and/or the mass release of prisoners from county jails. Domestic violence has been consistently up every month likely due to the COVID lockdown and the economy. 

On the Cambria front, the biggest issue has been the homeless. Especially during fire season, it is imperative that encampments be taken down as quickly as possible. Luckily, Cal Fire has been very quick in pulling the trigger to get aircraft from Paso in the air, many times arriving before the fire engines can get there. 

When asked who we can contact if we see homeless entering deeply wooded ravines, he encouraged us to call the Coast Station at 805-528-6083 and ask to speak Cmdr. McDonald or one of his sergeants. They are anxious to know about any homeless in heavily wooded areas because of fires. Some of these are well hidden and hard for the Deputies to locate.

Dr. Joe, filling in for Chairperson, Paula Porter who was without electricity at the time, thanked the club for the opportunity to do a presentation about the Peace Committee. Joe said they are taking baby steps and getting their stride this year and part of that is to have programs where we have discussion topics. In the interest of predictability in this time when so much is unpredictable he gave us an overview of what we will be doing. First we watched a short video about peace. You can watch this excellent video at: 

https://youtu.be/6vuXEvhua1A . 

We then broke into groups to answer the following question: During the past week, what are some ways you have worked to create peace within yourself and/or with others. After each group met, one person was selected to share one of those peace cultivating practices with the rest of the club. After all the groups have shared, we reflected on some common themes that emerged. 

Group 1: Kate Perry shared that her mom died September 17th and theirs was a less than ideal relationship. She has been struggling with what will never be when it comes to that relationship. There is no small thing when it comes to being mindful about yourself and cultivating peace and being at peace. 

Group 2: Janet Meyers said that their group talked about the need for patience. Patience is so important to having peace in your life. We all find ourselves in situations where we lose our patience but we have a choice to be patient or not. To be respectful or not. To be kind or not kind. Being aware of that consciousness is very important. 

Group 3: Otis Archie talked about the importance of listening. By listening, people are being heard and by being heard, stress is relieved. 

Group 4: Julie Jenkins discussed the need to take personal responsibility for ourselves or where we are. While we have no control over what the other person is doing, we have control over what we are doing. Also, cancelling out some of the voices that come out through Facebook and other social media and instead finding your own worth. 

Joe finished by reflecting on the one theme he picked up on and that is “Slow down”. Paula added that peace really is an inside job.

Soren Christensen became Hearst Ranch Winery’s winemaker in 2014. His expertise hails from working with some of the best vineyards in Paso Robles. While at Hope Family Winery, he worked on the winemaking team crafting Cabernet-based wines for Treana and Liberty School and later worked with the Rhône-variety based Alta Colina Vineyard

Hearst Ranch Winery owners, Jim and Debby Saunders are in a partnership with Steve and Barbara Hearst. The main tasting room is in San Simeon but they also have a second one in Paso. 

Soren first met longtime grape grower Jim Saunders some 20 years ago, when he was tasked with sampling grapes prior to the 2000 harvest. The fledgling cellar-hand became fast friends with the Saunders, who was selling his grapes to top wineries at that point. “Jim offered insight and expertise that I took to heart, so it was an easy decision to join his team,” Christensen said. “Making wine worthy of carrying the Hearst name is no small task. I am honored to join their team and will strive to exceed expectations as I embark on this new journey. 

Soren told us that a new food purveyor, Field to Table, has just signed on to provide food at the San Simeon tasting room.

He holds a B.A. from Ripon College in English and philosophy, and a masters in journalism from Columbia University. After an initial stint as a restaurant reviewer and reporter for Mpls. St. Paul Magazine, Frahmann worked in marketing for a variety of high-tech companies, including Control Data, Xerox, and Sage. He is currently Director of the Cambria Film Festival

Dennis told us that, when they started out, our goal was to create a film festival that celebrated our community and our shared love of film from around the world. That remains our mission. Admittedly, no one can predict with confidence what the world might look like in February of 2021, but we know one thing. If the Cambria Film Festival wants to host another wonderful year of outstanding films, we need to start now. It takes a full year to plan and execute. That’s why we’re sharing our thinking with our entire community of filmgoers, volunteers, screeners, and sponsors. We are committed to moving forward with our plans for a film festival dedicated to romance, romantic comedies and the complexities of love on February 4-7, 2021. We believe it will be good for our town and for all of us. With that in mind, we already put out a call for films on FilmFreeway.com. If you know filmmakers who may be interested, let them know about our festival and encourage them to submit. Screeners, get ready. In about 30 days, we anticipate asking you once more to start your watching engines. We hope life is closer to normal by then, but that you can still give us your time. Volunteers, we’ll keep you informed on our progress. We’re looking at new ways to make your experience even better, and we plan to host a special session for key roles in mid-summer. Passholders and sponsors, please keep the Festival in your thoughts and plans. Just know that your enthusiasm and support during our first three years resulted in reserves sufficient, even in these financially perilous times, to allow us to host a fourth year, even if we need to scale it back. Meanwhile, we will use our Facebook and Twitter pages to share weekly film recommendations. We plan to showcase films at the Cambria Center for the Arts on July 29 and October 21. And we’re exploring options for testing a virtual film festival later this summer. If all goes well, this will provide an alternative way to view some of our Festival films next February. In February 2021, we hope our Festival will be one of many reasons why locals and out-of-towners will want to spend time on this beautiful coast and celebrate that theme that motivates our programming . . . love is in the air. To give you a taste of that, I am happy to share our poster design for the 2021 Festival. 

 

We were so pleased to have the officers of this year’s Interact Club join us. Presidents Jasmine Peña and Sami Fabila; Vice Presidents Viviaña Nunez; Secretary Crystal Fabela and, Social Media Director Caiden Kennedy. Treasurer Violet Wills was unable to join us. 

Each of the Interact students told us why they wanted to be involved in Interact (see their presentation attached to this email). 

We were told that during the week of November 2-6, the students will be celebrating World of Interact in a rather creative way. 

Member Monday (11/2) and they will introduce the officers to the student body and encourage everyone to join. 

Take Action Tuesday (11/3) they will be encouraging the community to take action by voting, participating in projects that benefit the community such as community clean up. 

Around the World Wednesday (11/4) our local Interact club will be connecting with a club from another area (country) via video. 

Thankful Thursday (11/5) they will be showing appreciation to their advisors (but don’t tell them It is a surprise). 

Fundraise Friday: Interactors will be selling baked good on campus. 

We were also reminded of their Fun Run/Walk Fundraiser. For more information on how you can participate or donate, go to https://runsignup.com/Race/CA/Cambria/InteractFunRunWalkCambriatoSantaBarbara 

 

Asst. DG Jane Howard told us that it is an honor to introduce Deb who was with the Sheriff’s Dept. for 18 years before being hired as SLO Police Chief in 2003. She served until 2011. 

Deb asked us to take a minute to imagine what our community would be like without our Rotary Club. What would have happened if we didn’t provide scholarships, food for families in need, volleyballs for kids whose volleyball camp was cancelled, etc. Please know you are so relevant and important to the community during these difficult times. 

Our focus this year is Rotary Opens Opportunities, selected long before COVID. We are being challenged to find opportunities despite what everyone is facing. Check out RI’s video at https://www.bing.com/videos/search?q=Rotary+International+video+%22What+we+see%22&docid=607995961547360068&mid=E8E94660AA081FD017F0E8E94660AA081FD017F0&view=detail&FORM=VIRE. 

Our District-wide focus. Membership is a priority. Look for opportunities for new clubs. We can create satellite clubs that meet at different times and places; cause-based clubs; clubs that cater to different demographics. Do you have any ideas for opportunities for new kinds of clubs. We need to keep in touch with members who are not attending meetings to keep them engaged. Continue doing community service projects to keep members involved. 

The second focus is the Rotary Brand. To quote Maya Angelou: “I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel”. This is true of our club meetings. Getting word out about our club through social media is important. 

Deb also reminded us that we are still working to eradicate Polio. One of the speakers at this year’s conference is a man who was raised by a mother in an iron lung due to polio. She told us that he has an amazing and uplifting story and encouraged everyone to attend the virtual conference to hear him speak. You can check out the agenda for the entire conference at https://www.dropbox.com/s/2pcdtsu2729ayfn/Agenda%20for%20Website%202020.pdf?dl=0 

Finally, DG Deb reminded us of a quote by Charles Dickens, “No one is useless in this world who lightens the burden of another”. 

Deb then presented the District 5240 People of Action Award to Linda Sherman for her tireless and selfless service. 

Mike di Milo is the Education Coordinator and holds a Bachelor of Science from Cal Poly in

Natural Resources Management. He leads field trips and is involved in coordinating all of

the recycling education program activities for the IWMA. Mike has over twenty years of

experience in developing and administering school education programs. Mike, along with

his staff do 900 recycling programs to both children and adults throughout the county.

This was a very interesting presentation and we all learned a few things we did not know

such as food scraps can be turned into compost and electricity if we put them in our green bins. (See the

flyer attached to this email for more info).

On January 17 & 18, 2020, Rotary brought peacemakers together from around the world to Southern California. The World Peace Conference was held at the Ontario Convention Center. Rudy Westervelt, Chair of Rotary World Peace Conference 2020, and his team of Rotarians from eight Rotary Districts dedicated two years to produce this conference. 

“The mission of the Rotary World Peace Conference 2020 is to bring together experts with solutions to major issues that are occurring in our personal lives, homes, schools, businesses and communities, not just in Southern California, but around the world. We are inviting leaders from health care, academia, government, public safety, religions, business, and communities to meet together to share the solutions presented by experts. The format will allow for action plans to be developed such that real and measurable actions can be undertaken when attendees return home.” 

 

Craig Collins is a retired USAF officer and also a retired pilot of Continental Airlines. He came from a military family, his father retiring after 28 years of active USAF service. Craig attended the US Air Force Academy, graduated and was commissioned in June 1969. He completed pilot training in July 1970 and follow-on F-4 training in July 1971. His first operational assignment was at Da Nang Air Base, Republic of Viet Nam, where he flew 222 combat missions and amassed 379 combat flying hours in the F-4 from Jul 1971-July 1972. His post Viet Nam assignments were at Homestead AFB, FL and Nellis AFB, NV. He separated from active duty in Oct 1978 and began flying commercially for Continental Airlines. He was furloughed in October 1980 and re-entered the military as an F-4 pilot in the Air Force Reserve and later as an F-16 pilot with the same unit in Austin, TX. In 1985 he was recalled from his furlough with Continental and continued his airline career until his mandatory age 60 retirement in 2006. He simultaneously continued his Air Force Reserve career until his retirement in June 2007, having served in the military for 36 years. 

Commander Nelson is a 21 year veteran of the SLO County Sheriff’s Department and is currently assigned to

the Sheriff’s Coast Station which covers from Ragged Point to Avila Beach. However, today is his last day in

that position and he will be moving to the Professional Standards Department which is similar to Internal

Affairs.

Commander Nelson told us that, in August, Sheriff’s dispatch received 520 calls from the Cambria and San

Simeon area. These calls can range from a report of a car accident, which is responded to by CHP or need for

medical assistance. During August there were 29 calls for disturbances, 4 burglaries and 7 theft calls. One of

the theft calls was for a pair of shoes stolen off a front porch. The shoes were recovered and the outlaw

apprehended! Interesting fact: burglary is committed when something is stolen from a locked car, business

or residence while it is considered theft if the car, business or residence is locked.

Cmdr. Nelson cautioned us to be careful of scams. Never give your credit card or personal information to

anyone over the phone. No government agency will ever request this over a phone call. And, never comply

with a request for gift cards to settle a debt or to purchase anything over the phone. He also said to be

careful when using a credit card machine to purchase gas or to take money out. Crooks are installing

“skimmers” in ATM machines so they can steal your credit card information and your password. Always grab

the credit card holder and shake it a bit. If it is a skimmer, you will know it if it moves.

Each year, thousands of young people take part in the Rotary Youth Leadership Awards (RYLA) program worldwide. Young people are chosen for their leadership potential to attend an all-expenses-paid camp to discuss leadership skills and to learn those skills through practice. Rotary clubs and districts select participants and facilitate the event’s curriculum.

RYLA aims to:

  • Provide an effective training experience for selected youth and potential leaders;

  • Encourage leadership of youth by youth;

  • Encourage youth to make a difference in their communities through volunteer work and social responsibility; and

    Demonstrate Rotary’s respect and concern for youth.

Aside from being Bruce Howard’s cousin, Brad is a Past District Governor of District 5170
(California’s Silicon Valley), and a past member of the Board of Directors of Rotary International
for the 2015-17 Rotary years. He just completed serving a three-year term as Chairman of Rotary’s Communication Committee. In addition, was also a member of the 2020 Rotary Virtual Convention committee.

The eradication of polio has been a significant part of Brad’s Rotary experience. He served 10 years as the Zone 26 End Polio Now Coordinator, and has led 34 Rotarian groups, comprised of over 1,600 people, to participate in polio national immunization days in sub-Saharan, West Africa and India.

Brad told us that, in order to remain relevant, clubs need to evolve. Now that we are not limited to holding our meetings within four walls, we should work to get great speakers and invite the community to join us. Our most essential quality is our members.

While we don’t have the ability to tape our Zoom meetings, you can hear Bruce’s talk at the 2020 Virtual Convention on this exact topic at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hIBF04gxmLI&feature=youtu.be . Our District Governor, Deb Linden, also recently sent out an interesting link about Clubs Made to Order. You can read that at https:// www.rotary.org/en/clubs-made-to-order?fbclid=IwAR2eLVYy2w6pqwQ-SofJMIAzqG97tIiuhLunaSHOqNM4tWWAcqBNmbRO6sQ

Everything we do as Rotarians to improve the human condition in the global community builds peace. When you feed the hungry, improve educational opportunities for everyone or help create a climate for community economic development you are building peace. When you see injustices and assist in removing them, you are building peace. When you work to improve the environment around us, you are building peace. When you reach out a hand to people you don’t know and who will not know you, you are building peace.

Rotary Club of Cambria - Peacebuilder Committee:

Chair: Paula Porter, LMFT
Members: Otis Archie, Julie Jenkins, Joseph Morrow, Janet Myers, and Kate Perry

Joe explained how when we experience trauma, as we are currently with COVID, we go through stages that eventually result in our feeling at peace. 

EBERLE WINERY was not Gary Eberle’s first venture when he arrived in Paso Robles. After finishing his work at U.C. Davis, Eberle moved to Paso Robles and began his career by co-founding the Estrella River Winery in 1973 (now Meridian Vineyards & Winery). After several successful years at Estrella River, Eberle refocused his attention and desire to produce premium, small production wines. Moving only a few miles towards down- town Paso Robles, Eberle soon started his own prestigious label which debuted officially with release of Eberle’s flagship wine, the 1979 Cabernet Sauvignon.

When asked about his policy of giving veterans a 40% discount, he explained that, after a football injury that curtailed his career with the Detroit Lions, he decided to join the Marines. He was turned down because he failed the physical. Seeing the way veterans returning from Viet Nam were treated, he decided he wanted to do something to show they were appreciated. He has also extended that policy to law enforcement.

Today, as guests arrive to visit the Eberle tasting room and take guided tours, they are greeted by Gary’s two standard poodles, appropriately named Roussanne and Sangiovese, as well as the famous bronze Porcelino (Wild Boar) statue, a replica of the original in Florence, Italy. And, after 35 years of fine winemaking, the Eberle logo remains the designated ‘small wild boar,’

the literal translation of the German name ‘Eberle’ into English.

Jane Howard told that, as we age, it becomes more and more difficult to do everyday things. After 30, we begin to lose muscle mass and loss of muscle mass results in lower

metabolism. Jane told us that she has a Facebook page where she demonstrates the exercises she showed us today. Here is the link: https://www.facebook.com/search/top? q=personal%20training%20by%20jane%20howard .

These photos are not the best but, hopefully, when you look at the Face- book page, these will help you to recognize the exercises Jane was showing us.

Bruce Howard told us about National Immunization Days around the world. Rotarians are hosted by local Rotary Clubs and spend a week going house to house to immunize every child.

You can see Bruce’s Power Point presentation as well as his bullet points in the links attached to this email. Thanks for a great presentation.

If you are interested in donating to Rotary’s Polio Plus fund, see the form on the next page. Monthly tax deductible do- nations of as little as $5 can be made to help rid the world of this awful disease.

These photos were posted on District 5240’s Facebook page on July 23rd. This week almost 800,000 children in Pakistan were vaccinated against #polio! Vaccination is going ahead with strict observance of #COVID19 infection prevention & control measures.

Today, Bob Chalfa told us about Thousand Smiles founded in 1985 by members of National City and Chula Vista Rotary to provide free dental
and surgical care for children from financially challenged families in Mexico. Specializing in those having cleft lip and palate disorders. To read more about this amazing project and to find out how you can help by donating time or money, check out the link attached to this email or go to:

We were honored to have as our speaker, Sylvia Whitlock, the first woman president in Rotary. Sylvia entertained and amazed us with facts and personal anecdotes while sharing a fascinating glimpse into the journey to allow women in Rotary. She detailed the circumstances of the case as women struggled to attain equal rights, her role in the

process, conversations with participants and onlookers, and the benefits she has gained personally through her own membership.

“I am proud to be a member of Rotary. I have met several International Presidents and had the chance to talk with them about our club. I do not know of a better vehicle through which to serve mankind.”

Almost Past President Mary Ann told us that, when she started her journey as President, her passion was the eradication of Polio. We just recently heard that Africa is now Polio free! She said she has been inspired by the hard work and dedication and thanked everyone for making this the Best Rotary Club in the World!

She acknowledged everyone who served on the Foundation Board and those on the Club Board.

Special thanks went out to the chairs and members of the various Avenues of Service: Christel Chesney, Club Service; Miguel Sandoval, Community Service; Cynthia Woodruff-Neer, Youth Service; Gerry Porter, International Service and Laudon Rowen, Vocational Service.

Also recognized were Julie Jenkins who did an amazing job with Awards; PE Nominee Patty Griffin for her work as Grants Chair; Nancy McKarney for a great job as Membership Chair and Otis Archie for Public Relations.

Mary Ann also thanked Sgt-At-Arms Andrew Boyd-Goodrich for getting our meeting going; Otis Archie for the weekly invocations; Donna Crocker for providing so many interesting programs; Nancy Carr for all the personal notes she sent out for Family of Rotary; Julia Rice for organizing our lunches each week; PP Mike Griffin for being the Neal Jensen Cheerleader; Fine Master Rick Low for the humorous way he made sure all pledges were paid; PP Sheriff Dick Cameron for making sure everyone wears their pin and, Bob Putney for all his work as Polio & TRF Chair and Club Executive Secretary.

President Mary Ann then presented an Above & Beyond pin to Linda Sherman, Cynthia Woodruff-Neer and Sue Robinson.

Mary Ann acknowledged the amazing job Miguel Sandoval has done organizing and carrying out the community food program that has helped so many of our local residents impacted by COVID-19 layoffs. In recognition of his efforts, Miguel was named Rotarian of the Year and presented with a Paul Harris pin. Congratulations Miguel.

Our Prez then told us that she would be taking some time during future meeting to acknowledge other club members.

We were thrilled to be joined by 6 of the 9 students who were each awarded $1,000 scholarships by our club. The students told us about their future plans. David Amodei will be attending Cuesta before transferring to a 4 year university in pursuit of a BS in Business/ Hospitality Management; Fiona Cloward will be attending UC Davis where she has not yet declared but said her goal is to help people; Angelique Gutierrez will be going to Cal Poly to study Ag Science; Alondra Mercado will be at Fresno State studying Sociology. Julian Crocker told us that Alondra was also the recipient of the Richard J. Weyhrich Leadership Scholarship given to students who demonstrate exceptional leadership potential; Emma Sison will attend UC Davis studying Animal Science with an eye on Veterinary Medicine; and, Julie Vazquez plans to take a gap year to spend a year in Bosnia living with a Muslim Family to better understand their traditions (depending on the status of COVID-19). She then plans to attend UC Riverside majoring in Global Studies. Julie spend part of her junior year in Japan as an exchange student and now speaks Japanese! Additional scholarship recipients, Ellie Kennedy, Riley Volz and Luis Mercado were not able to attend our meeting.

As Principal Scott Ferguson said, “We can’t wait to see where life takes you”. Counselor Mary Stenbeck, who previously taught most of these students in 7th grade, tearfully told them how proud she was of them. Justin Gish, who taught many of them in 4th grade, told them he was amazed at what they have accomplished. Cynthia Woodruff-Neer explained the Rotary Wheel to the students and reminded them to be a “cog”.

In case you have any doubt that small schools like Coast can provide a first-class education, these students will prove you wrong. We wish them all the best.

Youth Services Chair Cynthia Woodruff-Neer introduced Whit Donaldson, 7th Grade Language Arts Teacher and Leslie Roper, Middle School Librarian and thanked them for their support for this year’s essay contest. There were obviously challenges since the students were participating in distance learning but, with the help of both Whit and Leslie, the deadline was met and some excellent essays were turned in. Mr. Donaldson thanked Rotary for all their support.

Cynthia then introduced Tanna Tartaglia who not only won our club’s 4-Way Test Essay contest but also won 1st place for
middle school in District 5240 which consists of 72 clubs!

Bob Kasper added that Tanna came to the Spaghetti Dinner Fundraiser and put $100 in the donation box! A future Rotarian perhaps?? A big shout out to Tanna.

Bob told us that CERT (Community Emergency Response Team) was started by Los Angeles Fire Department in 1985 to educate volunteers about disaster preparedness for the hazards that may impact their area and trains them in basic disaster response skills, such as fire safety, light search and rescue, team organization, and disaster medical operations. CERT offers a consistent, nationwide approach to volunteer training and organization that professional responders can rely on during disaster situations, allowing them to focus on more complex tasks.

Cambria Emergency Response Team was started in 2001 and, to date, 297 residents have been trained. Today we have 146 com- munity members active. Another 40 members are maintaining their skills to help themselves and family members and neighbors. Paso Robles just started their CERT and our CERT is helping them.

After the horrific fires in Paradise and other areas of California, CERT has been actively involved in the creation of evacuation pre- planning and support so community members can escape in the event of a fire. They are also working on an early warning system

that should be an improvement over the current reverse 911 system. And, they have created the R-U-O-K pro- gram (see page 5 of this newsletter).

A copy of the Power Point Presentation that Bob showed is attached to the email sent with this news- letter.

Thank you Bob for updating us on this very important service in our community. We are so lucky to have so many dedicated volunteers working to keep us safe.
