Ken Bradley: He had a birthday recently and celebrated with a "great" weekend trip that involved AVP volleyball (what more could you ask for?laugh) $20

Nothing this week.
 Marc Schneider (center). Pictured here with two other guys??
This morning, Santa Maria Police Commander Marc Schneider (and fellow Rotarian) gave us an update on the police department and the many programs that they are involved with. The current police roster involves 140 sworn officers with most of them coming from the local community. The Chief of Police is Phil Hansen with three Commanders reporting directly to him. Lieutenants, Sergeants and Officers are under the Commander's jurisdiction. Marc has proudly served in law enforcement for the past 27 years and really enjoys the profession he has chosen. We are very proud to have him as a member of our club.
