Mike Griffin invited Julie Jenkins, President of the Cambria Rotary Foundation to come up to the stage. He told her that he met a lady, Joan Kirby, while out walking his dogs. They chatted a bit and he told her about Rotary and our Foundation. The next time he ran into her, she handed him a $100 donation to the Foundation. Mike gladly turned that over to Julie.

Mike then invited Miguel Sandoval, Roger & Sue and Frank Colatruglio to the stage and presented them with a certificate naming them members of the Neal Jensen Fellowship. He then invited the newest Legacy Fellow, Dennis White, to the stage. Dennis gave a shout out to Mike for the great job he is doing “leading the choir”.

Mike explained how the Foundation handles donated funds. The principle

is never spent but is invested. Part of the interest generated from this in- vestment is used each year to fund our Avenues of Service.

Patty, speaking especially to new members and guests, reminded us that some people can give money, some can give blood, services, leadership and/or ideas. We value it all! She then went on to introduce our Vocation- al Services Chair, Elaine Beckham.

Elaine told us about her first Vocational event, CUSD Teacher Breakfast held in August. She thanked the 23 club members who cut, chopped, cracked, whipped, cleaned and served breakfast for 107 adults on that morning. Because of COVID, the breakfast had to be moved outside so we were unable to do the set-up the day before. But it turned out great! Elaine asked everyone involved to stand and be thanked.

Elaine then told us that we would be co-hosting a Chamber Mixer with Todd Clift of Moon- stone Cellars, in the patio of the winery on June 1st from 5:30—6:00. Todd will be provid- ing the wine and Rotary will provide the food.

Finally, Elaine told us about the Vocational Service Award for which she is accepting appli-
cation. This is to honor an individual for meritorious conduct or service in his/her profes-
sional/vocational occupation. The service can be for individuals or organization but not for a Rotarian. Elaine will be accepting nominations through the end of the month.
