Thank you, Cayucan Rotarians, especially Andy Lilley and Michele Lilley for a job well-done! The pancakes were well received and so were the soft and crispy sausages that tasted like bacon. The kids smiled, the adults laughed, and we got together as a community. Cayucos Rotary also wishes to thank all who came to support this event. All donations received will benefit Cayucos Elementary School.

From 8:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m., Cayucan Rotarians cooked and served pancakes and sausages; made and served coffee, hot chocolate, orange juice and mimosas to Cayucos community and supporters. The members worked hard, tirelessly and efficiently, and cleaned up quickly in about half an hour.  A big thank you to Dan Costley of Morro Bay Rotary for making all the fluffy and yummy pancakes.
Free community pancake breakfast this Labor Day, Monday, September 3 at Cayucos Vets Hall Tent, next to the Vets Hall. Batter for pancakes and sausages provided with compliments from Dorn's Restaurant.  Wide range of toppings for the kids!
Cayucos Rotary is leading the way to revitalize Rancho El Chorro Outdoor School in San Luis Obispo County. The outdoor school focusing on environmental education, serves over 10,000 students annually. Check out the video to see how you can help.
President Sherry Sim and President-Elect-Nominee Monika Gottlieb were delighted to deliver six back packs to Hannah Held at Cayucos School. This year, the school needed fewer back bags. Each back bag was filled with a binder, folder, binder paper, a pack each of pencils, markers, erasers, stack of index cards, and a bottle of glue.
At our Aug 9 meeting, we were treated to beautiful landscapes and the many four-legged(s) that roamed Mongolia ~ Camels, Argali or wild sheep, Aquila chrysaetos or Golden Eagle were some of the animals that Los Osos Rotary Past President shared with us at our August 9 evening meeting. We were captivated by the beautiful scenery of Mongolia and enchanted by those unique creatures that roamed the country.
Cayucos Rotary is pleased to honor Chris Dorn of Dorn's Restaurant in Morro Bay, for his unrelenting support and generous donations to the club's fundraisers over the past six years.  Thank you, Chris!  
Cayucos Rotary is proud to donate the cost of almost $17,000 to built a second yurt at the Rancho El Chorro Outdoor School to the County Education Board.

Club President Sherry Sim announced she survived her first month! The club has come a long way since it's chartered on 03/25/2008. Following the footsteps of 10 presidents prior, there are big shoes or some rather big shorts for her to fill.  She is counting down ~ 11 more months to go. Thank you, Cayucean and Group 11 Rotarians ~ you Rock!

Dick Moore, past president and Abbie Lynch, executive secretary at Cayucos School have been awarded the "People-of-Action" Awards by Rotary District 5240!
Does anyone know why a small town like Cayucos need 3 water purveyors? At our club's August 2nd meeting, George Brett, President of Morro Rock Mutual Water Company captured our attention on water, usage and why Cayucos never formed a Community Services District. Club President Sherry Sim had the pleasure to present Rotary District 5240's 'People-of-Action' Award to Abbie Lynch for her enthusiasm and new project ideas. President-Elect-Nominee Monika Gottlieb reported proudly that 120 golf-cart raffle tickets had been sold; only 270 more to sell. We had too much fun when immediate Past President Gina Spencer tried to turn our game of "2 Truths & 1 Lie" into "4 Truths and 3 Lies!" Ah ha!
Enjoyable program and tour with fellow Rotarians and guests, welcoming two new Rotarians to Cayucos Rotary, and recognitions by our District Governor Sandi Schwartz , plus ribbon-cutting of the completed 2nd yurt @ Rancho El Chorro Outdoor School.  The 2nd yurt was a joint project between Cayucos Rotary and Los Osos Rotary clubs. Both clubs sponsored and participated in the building of this 2nd yurt.

Cayucos Rotary is pleased to welcome Toni Legras of Beachside Rentalsand Doyle Daniel as our club's two newest members. 


Mother Theresa, an exemplary forerunner who served all her life, said it well, 
""Peace begins with a smile,
If we have no peace, it is because we have forgotten that we belong to each other.
Not all of us can do great things. But we can do small things with great love.
Kind words can be short and easy to speak, but their echoes are truly endless.
Yesterday is gone. Tomorrow has not yet come. We have only today. Let us begin.
Let us always meet each other with a smile, for the smile is the beginning of love.
We shall never know all the good that a simple smile can do.""

Let's us smile with our hearts as we serve together.

1.   Family of Rotary

2.   Friendship

3.   Fun

4.   Focus on Service, and of course, 

5.   Food!
