We are proud of our very own veteran, Past President Major Donna Archer who spoke briefly to our members to commemorate those 'Lost @ Sea' on Memorial Day. Due to Covid, the "Lost at Sea Memorial" has been cancelled two years in a row. We look forward to invite everyone to honor those who served and remember those who were lost come next May 31st. Thank you to everyone who served.

We celebrated 8 of our members' birthdaysđź’śThey were such a spot and worn their hats proudly and sillily for the photo shoot(s). Our guest speaker from Cal Trans shared much info on the Highway One repair by Big Sur. Our Adopt-A-Student during Covid will wrap up next week with the eight-graders receiving a $20 gift card from their respective Rotary sponsor. đź’ś It's another successful and fun Rotary meeting.

Thank you note from the 'adopted students' to Cayucos Rotary. We are humbled. Our hearts filled with warmth. Our members are so glad to encourage and enthuse these youths. We wish them the very best on their next journey towards higher education.

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

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 đź¤©đź‘Źâ€Ľ

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.

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 cayucosrotary@gmail.com  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.
