What a Wonderful Day in the Rotary!!
  • HAPPY 29th ANNIVERSARY TO US!! DMSB Rotary was spun off from the Del Mar Club on April 24, 1992, as testified by 1st President & current member Kevin Cahill
  • Charlotte & Molly joined us on zoom from their cars in line to get their covid vaccines
  • Camila Tirado, our Cristo Rey High School scholarship recipient joined us on zoom, along with Sean Green from Pontem Path
  • Rotarians & friends Andy, Alicia, Charles, Diana, Klaus, Lorelei, Mark, Molly, Sanjiv, & Susan helped yesterday at the DM vaccine superstation where Scripps gave a record 6000 shots (more than at Dodger Stadium as Andy pointed out)
  • DG Steve started with the induction of FOUR new members, 3 on zoom and Trish in person where her mentor Susan pinned her. Welcome Diana "Di" Shimkus, Director of EveryDay Mindfulness; Nicole Mione Green, Exec. Director of Casa de Amistad; Trish Boaz, Exec. Director of San Dieguito River Valley Conservancy; and Weilynn Chiang, Product Development Business Owner. WELCOME ALL!!!
  • Steve then had the honor of presenting Sarah Taylor with her first Paul Harris Fellow Award & pin, and gave Bill & Suzanne their PH+2 pins. Then came another surprise when Herb presented Steve with his PH+5 pin. CONGRATULATIONS!!
  • Marissa Kennerson, author of the podcast Age Thoughtfully, spoke about her mission to help individuals age with intention & vibrancy
  • Susan & Vicky shared the new Baja LobsterFest mailer  & encouraged members to sign up to help with planning
  • Patricia reminded us of the Cinco de Mayo social at the Hilton on 5/5 from 5-7, and to mark calendars for the Demotion Party on June 26
  • And we ended the meeting with a sad note from Herb that his gavel was stolen (it has been seen out partying with our BocceFest visors)
