President Walthers was happy to see so many fellow Breakfast Rotarians at his AHC Wine Party event (actually, Patrice Mosby was the only one there from our group). Having said that, he decided to randomly fine the following five members $30 each. Leonard Champion, Peter Kang, Julie Walker, Terri Stricklin and Jerry Walsh. He said that they were low on the fine list, but "spite" could possibly be involvedlaugh
Santa Barbara Maritime Museum
Mr. Greg Gorga
The Santa Barbara Maritime Museum was the subject of this weeks program. Mr. Gorga returned to our club to give us an update on the new educational programs that are currently available at the museum. The presence of oil fields in the Santa Barbara channel was represented in the many historical photographs included in his Powerpoint presentation. Interesting fact, the UCSB campus has a giant tar pit in the lagoon that sits on their property. To learn more about this entire subject, our club urges you to visit the museum  located at 113 Harbor Way, Suite 190 Santa Barbara, CA
