Ryan Swack (Rotarian of the Month): and also future club President (2020 -21), bragged on the entire club for the great job that was done with our annual Barn Party Luau this past Saturday (5/11). Everything seemed to go very smoothly and he was proud of all of us.

Jean-luc Garon: had a double nickel birthday recently. 55 is his age and also his brag amount :)

Rich Watson: Rich's dad and brother (Bakersfield Rotarians) attended our Luau and were thoroughly impressed with the entire event. Oh, and Rich also bought a trip to France at the auction (maybe he can talk Jean-luc into joining them as a guide?) $50

Tim Seifert: bragged on all the food makers during the Luau. Everything went absolutely great! $50
Dale Johnson: Thanked Tim Seifert for the loan of his trailer. He also had a recent birthday and his son is currently performing folk music with his girlfriend in Germany (I think that's what I heard). In reference to his birthday, he bragged $66.
Mike Gibson: was also extremely impressed with the club and all the hard work that everyone put in. He also took a moment to tell a cute story that involved the family, Mothers Day, dogs, 911 (the phone #) and a very funny ending. (let's just had to be therewink) $27
