Happy New Year!

President BeckyApril is the beginning of the busy season for Steinbeck Rotary. We just finished helping out at the All-Star Basketball game a few days ago, and the students in our Interact Club are pushing up their sleeves to gear up for their Relay for Life event. In less than 10 days we begin our work at the annual Sea Otter Classic, and we are counting on our members to support our commitment to this big fundraiser out at Laguna Seca. Remember that your friends and family can come out and join you in the booth—as long as they are at least 21 years of age. The sign up for this event is easy: Go to our website, and there is a drop-down menu from the Sea Otter tab across the top.

Very important—our first street faire and home brew fest is coming up in less than 6 weeks. That means that there is a lot of opportunity to give of your time and talent to help make this a success. President Elect Anne Olsen has done an amazing job of setting up the structure for this event, and we have a great opportunity to make this event a huge success. I believe the Friday night dinner and beer-tasting event will be a huge success, perhaps a step toward a larger event in the future?

I want to extend special thanks to Cary Swensen for arranging the scholarship interviews this week at Everett Alvarez High School for some worthy senior student applicants. Thanks also to Russ Wilcox for heading the construction of our crapper derby entry.

I am most proud of your staying engaged in our events and for providing the support that maintains the energy of this club.

Be a gift to the world!

Yours in Rotary Service,

President Becky
