Editor's Note:  You will notice the appearance of the Bull-A-Ton looks different.  ClubRunner recently -- and unexpectedly -- changed the program! As a result Editors 'WiseGuy' Randy & 'Rerun' Rande are on a rather steep learning curve.  Please be patient and expect format changes in the coming weeks.  Please feel free to share your opinions as what you like and dislike as we move through the process. 
The Rotary Club of Santa Maria will celebrate their CENTENNIAL ANNIVERSARY on the evening of Saturday, November 12 at the Santa Maria Inn.  It was this Club that sponsored SMBR in 1984, which will sponsor a table for those desiring to attend.  Contact Berto Rodriguez
Christmas Parade of Lights, scheduled for Saturday, December 3.  Mike Gibson is collecting business cards for display on the SMBR float.  For a mere $50 you can advertise your business to the thousands of spectators that line the parade route. 
Also, the Christmas Parade requires a lot of time and effort to produce.  Sign-up sheets will be available at registration table each week.  Don't be bashful, pick what you want to avoid being drafted into something less desirable.
The Rotary Club of Santa Maria-South is conducting Chicken Dinner fundraiser.  See Shannon Seifert for details.
The Tree Planting Project, planned for November 12 is in need of 20 volunteers to "stake and mulch" the trees being planted by the Noontime Club.  The more help we have the less time will be needed.  Contact Kathy Simas
