By the way.....Rotary Work Day on April 22 was a big success! Approximately 30 adults and 30 kids showed up to help the worthy cause at Rotary Park. 200 plants were planted and a large amount of wood chips were spread over the landscape. Thank you to everyone that participated.
Tanya Astrosky: bragged on her recent RYLA experience with a great group of high school students this past weekend. It was a very positive experience for everyone involved. $25
Shannon Seifert: was very proud of Tanya for taking on this major RYLA undertaking with only a four day notice. $50
David Leroy: was proud to brag on Pat McDermott and his Son-In-Law Carlos for installing a new vertical flag pole (and flag) in front of his home. It was purchased at a fundraising auction he attended. $100
Berto Rodriguez: bragged $25 on David Leroy for actually letting Pat near his house :)
Kate Ferguson: bragged $25 each on her two grand children that signed a letter of intent to attend prestigious academies for their higher education. She is very proud of them!
Andy Caldwell: was thoroughly underwhelmed by the retirement parties of Jim Peterson and Michael Moats. One involved milk and cookies and the other did nothing. As a result, he bragged a whopping $10
Jim Peterson: bragged $100 to the compassion fund in honor of his retirement. His last patient was seen on 4/26 after 40 years of his professional Chiropractic experience.
Lee Carroll: bragged on Ron & Suzanne Levy for helping him recently embrace his long, lost Jewish heritage. $25
Ed Carcarey: bragged on his good friend (and football competitor) Pat McDermott. Pat lost a bet to Ed and paid up via Presquille winery, which Ed had never experienced. It was all good. $50
Two Entire Tables: President Berto asked a trivia question involving April 25th and neither table came up with the correct answer, so everyone sitting there was fined $30. NOTE: only one person at each table was asked the question, but everyone was fined. Fair???....just sayin :)
Frank Ortiz: $30 for not introducing himself in a proper Rotary manner and another $30 for being a Giants fan.
Four Way Test Essay Winners
 This morning we had the pleasure of hearing the winning essays read to us by their authors (pictured above with Kelli Briggs and Roberto Rodriguez). Each winner received a check for $300 for all their hard work. To qualify for the contest, students were asked to consider how "The Rotary 4-Way Test" could be used in everyday decision making and relate, in an essay, a story in which they applied these principles in daily life. All essays were insightful and were an inspiration to everyone in attendance.
And the winners are...
Martin Testa
Lee Carroll
