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

I was first captivated by the amazing weather ordered up, as earlier in the day all over the central coast was either sweating hot or verging tornado winds. Well I guess Cuesta decided to make sure our club was comfortable to enjoy the beautiful live music, incredible snacks along side the wonderful inebriations. The evening included wonderful fellowship while we all had much to discuss and ponder. Tours of the behind the scenes education of the performing arts department really was both interesting and brought the youthfulness of some of our long ago graduates in our club. I could quickly tell who the class clowns were (Fuentes & Quaglino) and who the teachers pets were (Thomas & Lewis), but I'm not saying any names. I was fighting to keep with the crowd in my high heels to not miss a beat, and lets just say it was worth the blister later. The night concluded with an incredible art showing featuring the thought provoking artwork by Irene Hardwicke Olivieri. This art left us all questioning the life stories engrossed on canvas and even more interesting was the art designed with rodent bones. As if all that wasn't enough we were gifted with reusable bags so we can save those dimes spent on bags to serve our rotarian mission. I know some stayed into the night later, but my feet told me I better go home and put some slippers on...
 
Thank you Thank you and Thank you again Shannon for all you gifted our club with having such a fun an interactive night... Cuesta College is truly a wonderful school!!!
