ANNOUNCEMENTS:
 
 
2018 Christmas Parade: Mark your calendars for December 1st. That's when the parade will occur and a large number of Rotarians will be needed to make it as successful as possible. Mike Gibson will have sign up sheets beginning today which will also be available at all future meetings, so don't forget to add your name ASAP (unless of course you want to sweep up after the horsescheeky)
 
"Winner, Winner Tri-Tip Dinner": This Nipomo Rotary fundraiser happens this Sunday (10/28), so if you're interested please contact Jim Bray for more information.
 
 
Sips and Sombreros Fundraiser: Karl McClain was on hand to remind all Rotarians that there is still room available at Carol Bradfield's table on Saturday November 3. Please give her a call if you would like to attend.
 
 
 
Peter Pan PCPA Performance: Friday November 30th. If you would like to join our Rotary Club as we attend this year's holiday performance, please contact Betty Miller to sign up.
 
 
Good Samaritan Shelter Pizza Feed: As a reminder: Every fourth Thursday of each month (except for Thanksgiving) our Breakfast Rotarians are obligated to serve the residents of the Good Samaritan Shelter pizza and salad (that by the way is purchased by our club). Jason Stilwell organizes our volunteer efforts each month. It would be nice if we saw more members join in and participate. So, if you can possibly be of service from approx 6:30 PM to 7:30 PM on any dates in the future, please give Jason a call to sign up. It would be greatly appreciated. The next date is scheduled for December 27.

BRAGS:
 
Dan & Peggy Blough
 
Dan Blough: (Rotarian of the Month) Dan is still the Rotarian of the Month, but he offered no free brags today. He did take some great photos though.
 
Tim Staffel: bragged on Rob Buchanan, Jim Peterson and Bob Hatch for doing a tremendous job during their tenure as Orcutt School Board members. He also threw a "shout out" to Kevin Walthers for his excellent leadership at AHC. Way to go gentlemen! $50
 
Jim Peterson: somehow jumped into the above conversation and next thing you know Judge Staffel dinged him for $50 (I still think it falls under the "brag" category) That'll teach you to keep your mouth shut Jimlaugh
 
Leonard Champion: took umbrage to the recent "above ground" underground newsletter by our own Andy Caldwell. To redeem himself he brought a dozen premium donuts to the meeting and presented them to Mr. C and company. All I know is that I had one for the road on the way out :) Thank you Leonard! $30
 
Tim Seifert: apparently he and Shannon traveled up north to the Redwoods and hugged a bunch of trees (I hope no splinters were involved). All I know is that it sounded like a nice relaxing time and I'm sure they enjoyed their time off (now unfortunately back to reality.....bummer). That was worth $50.
 
Laurie Tamura: bragged on Andy Caldwell for an overall fun time at last weeks COLAB dinner. She also mentioned Ted Ortega for the great room rate they received at the Chumash Resort afterwards. $50
 
Roberto Rodriguez: Thanked all Rotarians that helped with "Back A Youth" night and the "Celebrity Waiters Night" (where over $91,000 was raised for the Boys & Girls Club). He and his wife also took some time off and cruised down to Ensenada. They had a terrific time! $25
 
Frank Ortiz: bragged on the recent "Casa at the Club" fundraiser where our Rotarians accounted for approximately $5,800 in donations. Frank was proud to brag $50 for the club.
 
Gary Nemetz: tried to escape the meeting without a brag, but was outed by a fellow member before the session was over. Gary and his wife made their way to the New England area for an eight day fall "color changing" guided tour. They really enjoyed the experience and would recommend it to anyone interested in going (except for the driving in Boston portion). He gladly bragged $50 on the excursion.
 
 
 
FINES:
 
No fines this meeting. Don't worry, I'm sure that President Mike will make up for it next week.
PROGRAM
 
Los Prietos Boys Camp
 
 
 
Once a year our club has the privilege of hosting representatives of the Los Prietos Boys Camp. The camp gives troubled young men the opportunity to change their life's course for the better and prepares them to be productive citizens going forward. Staff member Jim Clark and Judge Art Garcia served as hosts of the meeting and gave the attending teenagers the opportunity to address our membership as they spoke about their troubled life stories. After the presentation each young man was presented with a check for $500 to continue their education and/or vocational training. Our club was also very proud to present a check for $1,500 to the camp to help them continue on with their positive program.
