Thanks to the Staff at the Santa Maria Inn for their service to our Club!
Rotary Family Christmas Breakfast: Our annual family Christmas Breakfast will happen on December 22 at the Santa Maria Country Club. Santa will be there, but he needs your help supplying him with presents to give out to the children that you will be bringing. Contact Wendy Foxen
(organizer in charge) if more details are needed.
Message from Club Service Projects Chair Kathy Simas:
Tis the season! Our Club generously donated funds again for turkeys and hams to be distributed at Thanksgiving and Christmas. With Thanksgiving behind us, we are now focused on the Christmas distribution.
The hams and turkeys will be distributed at St. Peter's Episcopal Church on Thursday,  December 22 from 9:30 - 11:00 a.m,, with setup and cleanup time before and after. Yes, this is just following the Club's Christmas Breakfast at the Country Club!
Peter could use some great Rotarian support to help load, unload and hand out food that morning.
If you have the time to help, please contact Peter at
The church address is 402 S. Lincoln Street.
Christmas Caroling: A group of club carolers are being assembled for the evening of December 22. The singers will perform at assorted "special adult care" facilities around Santa Maria. The more the merrier! If you would like to help sing and participate, please contact Wendy Foxen.

This mornings informative program was provided by Club member Father Peter Kang.  He provided a historical perspective of how the Calendar was developed and how it relates to Christmas.  He started with the Gregorian Calendar but also noted that the Jewish Calendar goes back 5,783 years ago?  Lets of good stuff presented but the Bull-A-Ton editor could not write that fast!  Well done Father Kang!
