At the Sept. 12 meeting, we hosted Captain Robert Yick, and several patrol officers from Central Police Station for our 8th Annual First Responders Appreciation Breakfast. Members from Rotary Clubs representing Chinatown, San Francisco #2, Greater Mission and San Rafael were in attendance as well as representatives from local businesses, community services and area residents.
 

Captain Yick and his officers each spoke of how they value and enjoy their assignment in the area and their gratitude for the community’s for support.

Special guest was San Francisco Mayor London Breed, center, pictured here with President Herman Jones and Bettie Grinnell of Galileo High School. Mayor Breed recalled her experiences as a student at Galileo High School. A scholarship from our Rotary Club launched her to do work in the community, and being inspired by Rotary's theme of Service above Self ultimately paved the path for her to become mayor of San Francisco. 
 

Club member and District Governor Sue Rokaw presented the Mayor Breed with an Honorary Paul Harris Certificate along with a pin on behalf of our club.

We thank Community Chair Aline Estournes, and those who assisted her for the tremendous amount of work toward making this a very special event, which promotes Rotary in its best light.
