We had a wonderful meeting at the Chapman House in Shell Beach with our 2022-23 District Governor, Scott Phillips as our speaker. He gave us a quick rundown of this year's Rotary Initiatives set by our first ever woman president, Jennifer Jones. One of the biggest goals this year was to GET LOUD about Rotary (hence the pink shirts). Rotary has been the quiet club and it is time to step out and be heard. Thank you DG Scott for gracing us with your presence and your awesome message! And yes, the Begonias were in bloom!

L to R: Group 10 AG Berni Ann Lewis, DG Nominee Sherry Sim, DG Scott Phillips, Passport President Laura Ochoa, and Scott Phillips' mother (also a Rotarian)!
Our Rotarians are back out volunteering in full force! 
Rotary Passport President, Laura Ochoa, helps ‘Stuff the Bus’ at Walmart in Arroyo Grande along with San Luis Obispo County's United Way CEO, Rick London. This annual fundraiser for needy children occurs county-wide and a wonderful success due to the great generosity of our community members. 💜
SLO4Home, a non-profit that helps refugees find homes in the county, just finished their second two bedroom apartment in SLO. This home was furnished with 100% donated goods and labor and will go to an Afghan family (father, mother & daughter). With a goal to try to keep families within close proximity to each other, this family is related to the first family they supported who were working for the US as translators.  As we all know, it truly takes a village and of course a few Rotarians to lead the charge.
 
 
I lived in Santa Barbara for many years but had never heard of or visited the infamous Lotusland Botanical Gardens in Montecito.  In fact, recognized as one of the most breathtaking public gardens in the world, Ganna Walska Lotusland is home to over 3,400 different types of plants, including at least 35,000 individual specimens, and a captivating estate history that seamlessly comes to life as you wander from garden to garden.
 
Thanks to the generosity of our sister club, SLO Rotary Club, and Anne Byerly of that club, some of our very lucky Passport Club members were able to join in for this fantastic docent-led experience.  
The gardens were inspirational and gorgeous! 
 
We love joining in on our sister club's many wonderful experiences and service projects and look forward to more fun together!  
Our club's monthly mingler in May took place at the lovely Beerwood in Los Osos.  Beerwood is a community gathering place on the bay.  
 
Drinks, snacks, dinner, and great conversations were enjoyed by all.
We welcomed many guests as well- first timers that also liked the location and pleasant staff.  
We would love to have you join us!  Check out our Rotary Club!  https://portal.clubrunner.ca/2824
