Rotary is Peace

When Rotary International announced that it was going to eliminate polio from the face of the earth, many people thought it was an impossible goal.  A lot of people now have similar feelings about Rotary's latest world project - World Peace.  We hope the skeptics are wrong again.
President John spoke last Thursday about how all the clubs world wide will be joining together with the goal of world peace. Rather than trying to convince warring nations to agree to a peace treaty, individual clubs will be working to eradicate the conditions that lead to conflict and  violence.  Peace is not just peace between nations, but peace between individuals.  Bullying, human trafficking,  assault and homicide are all things that can be greatly reduced if the people involved have meaningful jobs and better living conditions.  Rotary can help with that.
President John and President-Elect Inge-Lise will be traveling to Thousand Oaks this weekend for the STEPS Conference to learn more about how our club can contribute to world peace.

Anniversary party

Pam Gnekow's Country Garden Catering served a wonderful prime rib dinner with all the fixing. 
Pam thanked us for all the projects we have done for the Buellton Senior Center.
President John received the club's charter from charter President Dean and promises to pass it on at his demotion party.
  Chris, Sheila and Dean listen to one of the past presidents tell the history of the club.
District Governor Nick Frankle attended and praised our club for all we have accomplished.
Many thanks to Ron Walsh who chaired the event. He was assisted by Bob Dullea who handled invitations and attendance, Judy Canby, Penny Knowles, Steve Berg and Dean Davidge.
