President Becky's Message, Brew Fest Info and more.

President BeckyThis month we are launching the first of what I hope becomes a ‘signature’ event for our club. The Steinbeck's Home Brew Fest and Street Faire is an opportunity to introduce the craft of amateur brew masters and to showcase the pride of our community. The obvious measure of success is a great fundraiser, but another reward is that every member can be involved. This club has always enjoyed the projects that engage the entire membership; these are the most fun.

The weekend allows us to support the Downtown Rotary Club with our entry in The Race of Thrones that takes place earlier in the day of our festival. We are grateful to Susan and the folks at the National Steinbeck Center for allowing us to piggyback our event during the 3-day annual Steinbeck Festival. Our special dinner with beer pairings on Friday, the eve of our brew fest, promises to be a great opening for our festival.

During May, we will have the chance to honor the top 25 students of each class at Everett Alvarez High School at the Top 100 Dinner on Wednesday, May 11. Let us show up strong on that evening and continue to demonstrate our pride and support to these high achievers. Many of you will recognize a good number of the honorees are part of our Interact Club on campus! Speaking of Interact, the club’s final project is Relay for Life later in the month. Thank you for supporting their fundraising efforts.

I am grateful to all those who volunteered your time at the Sea Otter Classic. The time we give to these projects—the Sea Otter Classic, the All-Star Basketball game, our Steinbeck's Home Brew Fest—all of these contribute to scholarship awards, literacy projects, and the collaborative sanitation project.

Continue being a gift to the world. Yours in Rotary Service,

President Becky
