Well done BBQ team, and event co-chairs Hannah Liquie Naitove and Ian Treacher. The 4H BBQ was a success. We had approximately 45 Rotarians and 28 4H kids and parents. The food was excellent and the 4H speakers were interesting and entertaining. Thank you all for putting in the extra time to make this event a success. And thank you to Bill Herreras for keeping us connected with 4H again this year. 
 
We're back to a regular meeting this week at the Madonna Inn. Aaah... just sit back and relax. 
 
And don't forget to sign up for April 6th Botanical Garden Rotarian's at Work day. An easy way to connect with your fellow Rotarians, nature, and service above self. 
 
See you on Wednesday!

Serving dinner at 40 Prado February 18 was a great success! One hundred twenty five homeless people enjoyed a warm dinner and Rotarians had fun working together!

The following Rotarians provided food and/or served homeless people a dinner of lasagna, salad, rolls, bananas, oranges, cookies and milk: John Wallace, Leslie McKinley, Jeff Pirolo, Chris Gardner, Jennifer Rhymes, Brooke Salvini (wife of John), Jan Marx, Sandra Duerr. Other volunteers Orlando, a Cal Poly architecture student and Jay Hieatt, local attorney also helped out.

Passing the "hat" on February 6, the club donated $237. Of that, $199 was reimbursed to purchasers of lasagna, milk and rolls. Providers of cookies, salad and fruit did not want reimbursement. I estimate that, if they had, that would have added another $100, making a total of $300 needed to provide dinner.

So, do we want to do this again March 18? Do you think members would donate $300 to make this happen?  Please let Jan Marx know. If you would like to provide food or serve March 18, please sign up right away.

 

I'd like to thank Laura Krueger for generously donating her Paul Harris Points when she resigned from the Club (hopefully temporarily while pursuing her Masters Degree).  Rotary Foundation was always important to Laura and she was able to help match dollars for Charmaine, Marti & Bernadette to bring them to full Paul Harris levels.  Laura was recognized as Rotarian of the Year for her work as our club's Foundation Chair.
 
Congratulations to Allegra & Natalie who achieved their Paul Harris levels as well.  Donations to Rotary International Foundation help valuable causes throughout the world and even assist with our own club's Vocational Scholarships.
 
 
 
 
Bryan and Cassie - thanks for introducing the newest member of our De Tolosa Rotary Family, Sullivan "Sully" Idler to the club.  
 
  
Congrats to Tom Zehnder and Dave Hicks for landing the best camping sites closest to boat ramp!  And thank you to Marti Lindholm for reserving the space next to them and joining the President's Club.
  
 Today, and for many days to come, we will be celebrating the passing of Barry Karleskint. As club members and friends, there is no doubt that each one of us has a story to share about our most beloved Rotarian. He was Brave, Strong, and Thoughtful in every manner of his life. He held us true to our goals and standards as our Parlimentarian and a 30 year member of Rotary De Tolosa. We will miss him, but not forget him as we share with each other our memories. At this time, Brenda has no outstanding needs. She is with family and will let Garret know if there are any needs or updates. She knows how much we love her and Barry, and that it would be our honor to help in any way. Garret will update us with news or needs as soon as there is anything to report. For now, Please take a moment of reflection to remember our dear, dear friend, Barry Karlerskint.
 
Congratulations to our most recent Paul Harris Fellows. Ron Regier, Laura Krueger, Bryan Idler, David Butcher, Erin Hoffman, Jeanne Potter and Mary Vickers
