Dear Friends

Our Dia de los Muertos event is our next BIG EVENT, and we are hoping for participation by all.  The event will be held at the Salinas Rodeo Grounds October 29th starting at 6:00 pm.  It has been a fun event in the past, and this year promises to be bigger and better than ever!  Please plan to purchase your tickets for Dia at tomorrow's club meeting.  Tickets are $50 per person, which includes food, entertainment and dancing.  This is a perfect BRING A FRIEND event.  Proceeds benefit Rotary International's End Polio Now campaign...a very worthwhile cause.

Change to the Tuesday Venue July 26th

This Tuesday, July 26, we are moving our meeting offsite to Rusti Silacci's barn on River Road in Chualar and we will move the start time to 5:45  pm to give everyone a chance to take the beautiful drive south.


Rusti's barn sits in a bucolic setting of row crops and vineyards between the Gabilan and Santa Lucia mountains.  Rusti was gracious enough to offer to host our first offsite meeting of President Cliff's year.  


Steve Pacheco and Derek Johnson will be BBQing for us all.  We will have a no-host bar of wine, beer and a cocktails.  


Our offsite meetings are a chance for us to raise some money for our club's general fund while enjoying each other's company in a different, less formal setting.  


This would be a great time for all of you to bring a guest.  Rusti's barn is large and can certainly accommodate all 76 members and their guests.  It would be great to see you all there.


We would like to get a head count for the meeting so we can purchase the right amount of food.  If each of you could RSVP to me by email or by text at 831-594-0884, before Monday at noon, that would be appreciated.  


Take care everyone and I really hope to see you all there.  I have attached directions to Rusti's barn so you can print them out.  She does not suggest using Mapquest or GPS as it "gets everyone lost."

Club News
Meeting Changes
A reminder that due to increases in food and use of the space at Giorgio’s, our club needs to raise meeting fees to $18 per week per member.  Your board also voted to require a minimum attendance by active members of two meetings per month.  This helps everyone stay abreast of our community events and commitments.  It also helps the club guarantee to Giorgio’s for a certain level of attendance and meet our financial obligations to the restaurant.  If you are unable to attend at least two meetings per month, please note that you will be automatically invoiced at the end of the month.  You may pay at the door for the other meetings held during the month.
Speakers for the Club Meetings
If you have ideas for speakers for our club meetings, please contact Brinet Greenlee.  She will suggest meeting dates for you to invite your speaker.
