President Ken updated the Club about Bocce 2019, saying that we were targeting the last Sunday in September and first Sunday in October..  Responding to Ken’s inquiry, Art thought that Pacific Rim Pathology should be able to be a VIP sponsor again this year and Art would be happy to help Malcolm with the “beer” thing.  Bill matched Art by offering his family’s VIP sponsorship again this year plus an offer to help where needed.  Steve raised a concern that the Jewish holy days begin the first Sunday in October.
“My Three Things” by Phil Campanelli
With only a few minutes available for the three big things in his life, Phil quickly talked about the three big things in his life, Family, Friends, and Faith, and shared a few photos (which we’ll try to add to this writeup later).  He came from a very Italian family back in Ohio.  In addition to Phil’s going to Cal Poly San Luis Obispo, both of Phil’s sons graduated from there the same year, even though they were several years apart in age.
“Pay it Forward Processing Donates Parts of Its Fees to Charities” by Renee VanHeel
Renee and David VanHeel started Pay it Forward Processing to offer an improved credit card processing experience for businesses in the U.S. and Canada.  But, they did it with a twist:  they donate a portion of their processing fees to charities that meet their vetting process.  Client businesses of PFProcessing benefit from no long-term contracts, reduced processing fees (98 % of the time), business development advice, social media promotions, and the satisfaction of helping their communities.  The businesses also gain additional positive exposure as socially responsible companies.  Renee introduced Cade VanHeel, a Vice President of PFProcessing, and Andi VanHeel, Executive Director of Every Swipe Benefits Charity, who added additional insights.  Nonprofits are encouraged to introduce businesses to Pay it Forward Processing and its Every Swipe Benefits Charity program to provide the nonprofits with a continuing stream of contributions.  Thus, Pay it Forward Processing gains new client businesses, the businesses save on processing fees, and the charities receive additional funds to do good things in their communities.
In the end DMSB Club President Ken Barrett presented the speaker with the Joshua certificate that represents our club DMSB donating school supplies to schools in Malawi in the name of the speaker.
