Week 5 : Rotary Guardian Angels Ms. Jessica Peterson Lynn (left) and Club President-Elect Michele Lilley  @ right delivering goodies to the eight graders as part of Cayucos Rotary’s Adopt-A-Student program. Two more weeks before graduation. 
Week 3 of Cayucos Rotary’s “Adopt-A-Student” during covid. Pictured are Club President-Elect Michele Lilley and Club Secretary Jessica Peterson showing the goodies that will be given to the middle-schoolers this week. Check out the smiles on the students’ faces! Hurrah!
This was one of the fun meetings that’s hard to top: we welcomed Michael Shopshear as the newest Rotarian to Cayucos Rotary. Mike is the owner of Nelson Garage in Cayucos.  
Our guest speaker, Nicholas Rasmussen, CEO of Habitat for Humanity for San Luis Obispo answered question after question from the floor ~ it's enlightening to see great interaction fro the members.

The 2nd batch of goodies was delivered by Cayucos Rotary’s President-Elect Michele Lilley to Mary Youngs
 at Caycuos School. This is our club’s “Adopt-a-Student” program during covid. Can’t wait to see the students’ reactions.
Initiated by President-Elect Michele Lilley, Cayucos Rotary has adopted twenty-two 8-graders at Cayucos Middle School. Each student will receive a goody bag every week till they graduate! At time of graduation, Cayucan Rotarian sponsors will donate a gift to present to their sponsored student as a graduation present. Pictured below is current club president Steve Geil furnishing staff with the first batch of 22 goody bags.
Indeed we did miss each other. We had fun, food, laughter & style at our last general meeting. Many came in beautiful plume while the others adorned what's comfortable. We recognized Past President Donna Archer as Rotarian of the Month for March 2021. Our Family Chair, Eileen Geil outdone herself again. We got to celebrate Doyle Daniel's and Donna Archer's birthdays and ate some really moist and delicious chocolate cup cakes. Amidst updates on projects, we gave generously in Happy Bucks ~ just see the smiling faces here. It was a beautiful meeting.
Cayucos Rotary partnered with Paso Robles and Atascadero Rotary clubs to help the Echo Homeless Shelter. Cayucos' donation of $500 was able to acquire 78 food gift cards instead of 50 from Tortilla Town, Red Scooter, Panda Express, & Grocery Outlet due to the generosity and additional donation from the vendors.
Congratulations to our fellow Rotarians as Rotarian of the Month - Carly Kaiser (December 2020), Dale Kaiser (January 2021), Greg & Angela Flores (February 2021) and Past President Donna Archer (March 2021)! Kudos to all 🤩👏‼
Cayucos Rotary Club President Steve Geil and 501c3 Club Foundation Treasurer Doyle Daniel presenting check for $300 to Terry Betterton, Malin Lebbad and the Harvest-Bag team at Cayucos Community Church this past Wednesday. The club will present a check each month for six months, till June 2021 to support the program that’s run in conjunction with San Luis Obispo Food bank to feed residents in need. The program hands out over 50 bags of food daily (Mondays-Fridays). Last year, Cayucos Rotary donated $5,000 and another $2,500 to the program. To support Cayucos Rotary, visit or donate on

A big thank you to our very own Carly Kaiser who oversaw and got all the decorations up on the pier on her birthday! Also many thanks to Robert & Phil Enns & their team for their help. Thank you & a very Happy Thanksgiving from the little, mighty Rotary Club of Cayucos. We are mighty because of our members like Carly Kaiser who spearheaded and sponsored this project. It can now be enjoyed annually by all : locals and visitors to the pier.

Cayucos Rotary's Covid-19 Fundraiser. Due Covid-19, Cayucos Rotary was not able to hold the annual Masquerade this past March. We have pre-packed 50 silent auction baskets, all valued and ready for your purchase. Here are seven of them. More to be posted. Please email  if you have any interest to support our fundraiser.
Another district grant project made possible by our members’ contribution to the Annual Fund program @ The Rotary Foundation via our sustaining membership cum happy bucks. Thank you, Cayucan Rotarians! Cayucos Rotary donating another $2,500 to Harvest Bag, a food program/collaboration between Cayucos Community Church and San Luis Obispo Food Bank serving needy families in Cayucos and neighboring communities. Pictured from left to right are Doyle Daniel, Cayucos Rotary 501c3 club foundation treasurer, Club President, Steve Geil in the middle and immediate Past President Steve "Lars" Larson at far right presenting the check to two of the Harvest Bag members.
Seemed like a revival: our members are enjoying the in-person meetings. Some of our members even brought their pets to the meeting. Club Treasurer Eileen Geil did a wonderful job of selling the silent auction baskets that she had packed for this past March Masquerade. Bet we raised a few thousand dollars! We also celebrated our newest member, Kate Stulberg's birthday and enjoyed John Lindsey's presentation so much we would be inviting him back to update us on PG&E's decommissioning of the nuclear plant.
Congratulations to immediate Past Club President Steve Larson, for another feather in the cap; in Cayucos Rotary club's receipt of Rotary International's Platinum Citation during his year, 2019-2020. The 'Rotary Citation' is the most significant award a Rotary club can achieve, as a result of the club's commitment to meet the community needs and complete projects. This is a gracious compliment to Cayucos Rotary's being recognized as the "2019-2020 Overall Best Small Club" in District 5240, covering SLO, Santa Barbara, Kern and Ventura counties.
Cayucos Rotary is pleased to welcome Kate Stulberg as our club's newest member. We are delighted that Kate has chosen to be part of the Cayucos Rotary Family.
Kate is married to attorney Jeff Stulberg, and has twin girls, Tory and Elizabeth Stulberg aged 17. She was the Executive Director of the San Luis Obispo County Arts Council for seven years. Prior to that, Kate was Chief of Staff at the Center for the Study of Popular Culture in Los Angeles, working for political pundit, David Horowitz.  Kate also worked for several years with the Western Office of the Council State of Governments, staffing the Health and Education and International Trade committees comprising state legislators from 13 Western states. She holds a Masters in Public Administration/Policy from USC and attended Mills College and U.C. Berkeley.  Kate speaks Spanish and has traveled extensively, including a six month trip up the East coast of Africa in the early 1980's.
Pictured above are Kate on the right and her sponsor, Katherine Hudson.  Members of Cayucos Rotary are looking forward to working  and engaging with Kate on our various projects and embracing any ideas from Kate.
Cayucos Rotary's 1st hybrid meeting last evening - in person plus Zoom with Rotary District 5240 District Governor Deborah Linden as our guest speaker. District Governor Deborah was inspiring and motivational. We also had Assistant Governor Jane Howard joining us from Cambria. Our members showed up in force ~ looked like we really missed each other. It's heart-warming. So glad everyone's healthy and safe. A few joined via Zoom. Food served by Lunada Garden Bistro was yummy. We welcomed Kate Stulberg as our newest member, while spouse, Jeff Stulberg joined in the induction.  Two guests visited: Joel Pace and John Paul, and we also celebrated a birthday. Last but not least, congratulations to club secretary, Jessica Peterson as the recipient of the People of Action award from District Governor Deborah Linden. It was a blast!
A big thank you to our club members who showed up to clean the beach and streets.  Pictured left to right are : Jessica Peterson, club secretary; Donna Archer, Past President, Mike Baxter who brought his lovely wife; Dale Kaiser, Board Member; John Paul (uncle of Toni), and Toni LeGras.
Thank you to all who were able to participate in the beach/street clean-up on July 26. It's great to be out and every caring act counts. Hope you are all looking forward to the next clean-up.  After the hard work, we adjourned for pastries and coffee and were able to do a bit of socializing albeit the distancing.
Please help to care for our beautiful community. If you are interested to join us in any projects, please email
