Marin Food Bank uses Harbor Rotarian's help!

Stan Green and Barbara Weldon are shown lifting a box of food  packed at Saturday's (Aug 18) Marin and San Francisco Food Bank event.  Stan was there in the morning representing Harbor Rotary and Barbara was there in the afternoon.  Sunday, Harbor Rotarians will be at the Bocce Ball event for Rotary.  Busy, Busy August!
 
An Open Letter from member Jim Carriere to us all:
I think I've shared that there is a ShelterBox Ambassador canoeing the length of the Mississippi River in hopes of raising over $250,000. In addition he can win another $50,000. Please see below, vote daily if you can, and share with friends. I'll provide details tomorrow and let you know how to sponsor a mile (or more) if you'd like to. 
 
Great news! Because of his paddle expedition down the Mississippi, ShelterBox volunteer Erik Elsea has been nominated for the Eagle Rare Life Award. The $50,000 prize will go to the winner’s charity of choice!
 
Cast your vote (one per day) here: http://www.VoteForErik.com
 
The top five finalists to receive the most votes in each category will be considered for a category prize of $5,000. The judges will then evaluate the top 10 nominees across all categories to determine the winner of the Eagle Rare Life Award and the $50,000 Grand Prize, which will be donated to the charity or cause of the winner’s choice.

July 25th was GRADUATION DAY for the 3-8 yr olds in the Canal area who learned water safety and how to float and beginning swimming at San Rafael High School.  We enjoyed the celebration and enjoyed the visiting afterwards!
Today  "What's Happening" calendars guru, John Benus, gave us tips about healthy living.  A brief summary in no particular order:  1. toothpaste is poison (read the label) so rinse three times  2. Four grams of sugar - 1 teaspoon, so one quart of low-fat yogurt is 15 teaspoons of sugar.   3.  Use soap to shave not areosol spray cans, then use aloe vera gel on your face, legs, etc.  4. Don't drink milk.  5. Chew well so your stomach can actually digest the food.  6. Ignore the "3 square meals a day" idea...eat the largest meal in the middle of the day.   7. Avoid gluten and avoid meat (chicken or fish okay but not red meat.  If you must eat red meat to survive, eat grass fed organic red meat).  8. Bike, jog, hike..and if you walk, make sure you are walking at 3 mph.  Do so daily.    Good ideas for us all and that was just a quick sampling of all the data he presented.
January 29, 2018, the San Rafael High School Interact members once again worked to cook and serve the homeless.  Showing up to help with clean up were our own two members, President-Elect Barbara Weldon (on the right) and President-Elect Nominee Judi Cooper (on the left).  THANKS, kids!
