|Some of the great auction items that will be available!|
Membership Minute – Past-President Terry Hull congratulated the club on the success of bringing in new members and teased that Steve Bestolarides is bringing 2 candidates which proves that anyone of us can do it.
Santa Cruz Rotary Fundraiser – Tom McHugh announced he will be riding in the Sunrise Rotary Club of Santa Cruz 20th annual 200 mile bike ride to raise funds for youth in Santa Cruz county. The event is September 27 – 29, 2018. This is the 21st annual ride and the fundraising goal is $50,000. My fund raising goal is $1,500 and seven club members have each pledged $100 so I’m nearly half way towards my goal. The ride is spread over three days and goes from Healdsburg to Santa Cruz. There will be approximately 65 riders the ride is supported by 10-12 volunteers, Rotarians and non Rotarians.
The money raised will support 3 charities in the Santa Cruz area. They are as follows:
- Leo’s Haven at Chanticleer Park. This is Santa Cruz County’s first inclusive playground for children of all abilities. It exposes children to the benefits of play and teaches lessons about compassion and awareness. More information can be found at www.santacruzplaygroundproject.org.
- CASA- Court Appointed Special Advocates for children. This is a national association that provides abused or neglected children access to safe and loving homes.
- Second Harvest Food Bank- Works to end hunger and malnutrition by educating and involving the community.
Anyone wishing to make a contribution can make their check payable to Santa Cruz Sunrise Rotary and give it to me at our next meeting.
- $100 – President Waqar celebrated the election of a UOP Alumnus as President of Pakistan, Mr. Arif Alvi!
- $75 – Colleen Stewart and tribe took a vacation to visit family in Illinois, Missouri and Kentucky and all returned with no one left behind.
As a Rotarian since 2004, Vice Mayor Elbert Holman is highly qualified to talk about the impact Rotary has on this community by making a difference on the margins. The Vice Mayor was raised in a nuclear family who arrived in Stockton in 1944 with everything they owned in a 1934 Dodge. Elbert’s father worked as a dishwasher and his mother cleaned homes until Elbert’s father got a job with the City of Stockton and his mother went to school to become an LVN. They bought a home on Spring St. and raised 10 children who all still live in Stockton. In a surprising twist of fate, Elbert joined the Sheriff’s department and felt like a fish in water. Elbert’s crime solving gift has made our community safer and his people skills have made him a great councilman. He will be missed when he retires at the end of his term.
Next Meeting: September 12, 2018
Matt Lazaro, “Feeling Better Through Nutrition”
For the past 10+ years, Matt Lazaro has been helping our community member reach very specific nutrition goals. His claim to fame is working with bodybuilders and fitness enthusiasts regarding their nutritional food intake. In a nut shell, you tell him what you want to look like and he tells you how to make it happen. He was a high school athlete and also fought competitively in Muy Thai kickboxing. Although being fit appears to come easy to him, he’s fought his fair share of challenges.
What most people don’t know about him is that he is an avid reader in areas such as: MD case study’s, Astro physicist, human behavior along with high elevation mountaineering.
He is a father of two beautiful children and a husband of a stunning wife. Today he has the honor of helping people feel better about themselves, helps them take their life back to live life to their fullest.
When working with Lazaro Nutrition you will have your own personalized health and wellness program tailored to your specific goals. Your program will address bettering your nutrition, training, rest and recovery, and other wellness aspects such as your mindset!”
