Highlights of Today's Meeting
Keep Wearing Rotary Pins -- You Need to Wear Them
President Doug Feco asked those that forgot to wear their pins to stand up.  If you forgot to wear it he asked that you put a dollar in the box being passed around! The dollars raised will be matched by Doug and donated to our Charitable Foundation for scholarships.  
Rotary Moment
Cindy Jacoby shared her Rotary Moments this morning and they included all that we do for our community and our youth including YES!, holiday shopping spree, and events we've done in the past with the Free Clinic and other organizations.
Rat Fink
Jeff Faulwell was our Rat Fink this morning and talked about the upcoming Solar Eclipse on Monday, August 21st.  He shared fun facts and other information about the event.
Shine a Light on YOU Award
Leigh Seaton received the award this morning from Doug for all the hard work he did for the Smoke Alarm project.
2018 Cajun Sponsorship NEW Payment Program
Deb Davila announced that a new payment system will be instituted this coming year for our Cajun festival.  Sponsors will now be able to make four payments instead of one lump sum to be a sponsor for our festival.  This will help with cash flow and hopefully attract new and more sponsors!
5240 District Conference in Ventura
Doug Feco announced that this year's 2017 5240 District Conference will be Friday, October 6, 2017 - Sunday, October 8, 2017 at the Ventura Beach Marriott. Visit the district website for more information and to register.
RMCP - Risk Management Continuity Planning Committee Update
Jim Lowry announced that there will be one opening on the RMCP committee for the fiscal year that runs from September 2017 through October 2018. Nominations will be accepted in the next few weeks.
Smoke Alarm Community Project
Smoke Alarm Installation this past Saturday was a resounding success. More than 20 members came out to install or replace batteries in 34 homes. There are 222 units at the mobile home park and he hopes to reach every one with these events.

Free Clinic
Fred Bauermeister
We had the pleasure of hearing from the Free Clinic's Executive Director, for more than 46 years, Fred Bauermeister!
He shared photos from their history, which began in 1971, and had members read letters of thanks from their clients. He talked about his passion for their mentoring program and introduced Melissa Gonzales, the daughter of his office manager, who has volunteered for many years and is now attending Georgetown University to study psychology and medicine.
The Free Clinic has four service areas: Medical, Legal, Individual/Family Counseling, and Dental.  
He talked about their upcoming fundraiser on October 14th - the Fairy Tooth Run.
The framed tree represents the thumbprints of those that have volunteered and donated to the Free Clinic over the years.
