Tanya Astrosky: thanked Ryan Swack for a great Mother's Day brunch at the Santa Maria Inn. She and her family had a wonderful time. $20
 
Mark Bachman: recently returned from a week's long stay at Mammoth where he did absolutely nothing (a perfect vacation). He also bragged on Mother's Day at his sister's house (quite a few Mothers were hosted). $100
 
Ryan Swack: has the perfect wife and Mother of his children. To celebrate that special day she wanted to go to an Oakland A's baseball. The whole family went and they had a great time. $30

Frank Ortiz: is going on a four week vacation where there is a four hour time difference (you figure it out). Due to that fact, he will not be attending very many meetings in the near future. Since no brags will be coming during that time, he thought that $20 would be better than nothingwink

Ken Strange
 
  Mr. Strange attended our meeting this morning and spoke about the spiritual trek that he and his wife went on in 2018. After completion and returning home he wrote a book entitled "It's your Camino" one couple's 500 mile pilgrimage across Spain. The walk itself took 31 days to complete averaging 12 to 22 miles per day. After speaking to the club about the history and reasoning behind the journey, he then played a scenic video that showed many of the sights that they experienced along the way. Afterwards Ken took questions from the members in attendance. If interested, the book can be purchased in English as well as Spanish on Amazon.com
