Friday, July 21 - We will be supporting the SLO Downtown Association (now called, "Downtown SLO") at Concerts in the Plaza starting with a volunteer orientation at 4:30pm sharp at Mission Plaza, and then staffing the beverage tent from 5:00-8:00pm. Up to 15 club members are needed to help check ID's, act as beer runners, line managers and cashiers. This is a commitment from 4:30-8:00pm. Contact community service director, Matt Janetskiby July 19 to submit your completed volunteer waiver and receive more information prior to volunteering. Friends and family over the age of 21 may volunteer as well. This is a fast paced, fun event that helps support the organization that supports businesses in the downtown. And we are THE "downtown Rotary club", so let's do this! 
If you happen to miss a Tuesday morning meeting, there are a variety of ways to make up for it. Our club's current policies require that members who miss a meeting complete a make up requirement within two weeks of the missed meeting. And we pride ourselves in having over 90% attendance in comparison to other club's throughout our district. Here are the ways you can do so, and help keep our attendance track record high:
  • Attend a Rotary District 5240 meeting, seminar or PRLS class
  • Attend a SLO Daybreak fundraiser
  • Visit a Board of Directors (second Monday of each month, 5:30pm) or a club committee meeting
  • Participate in a club community service project - local or international
  • Attend an Interact or Rotaract meeting
  • Join a meeting with President Wilson
  • Go to an online meeting such as Rotary e-Club One or E-Clubs around the World
 
Remember to notify our club secretary, Dave Wilsonwhen you do a make up. And sorry folks, attending social events or being somewhere and running into a few other Rotarians doesn't count, however fun and productive it may be! However, there are a lot of ways to get an A+ as a regular attendee and we want to make sure our club members stay engaged in our activities and connected with each other. That's why our club policies require consistent attendance - we want everyone to get the most out of their Rotary membership.
Rotary District 5240's leader this year is John Weiss, from the Rotary Club of Morro Bay - way to go SLO County! Click here to read his welcome message for the new Rotary year and we look forward to hosting District Governor Weiss to a future Tuesday morning meeting with SLO Daybreak.
 
With fires both small and large breaking out throughout District 5340, DG Weiss encourages Rotary clubs and its members to consider donating to their local American Red Cross chapters to support residents in need of assistance. Click here to make a contribution to disaster relief or call the San Luis Obispo office at (805) 543-0696.
Our Rotary club is part of a regional "district" comprised of over 70 clubs and 3,500+ members in four different counties - all interested in "Service Above Self" - from Paso Robles to Simi Valley to China Lake. Need to know what's happening in District 5240? Be sure to visit the district events calendar to be "in the know" with district-wide events, trainings and learning opportunities. There is so much more to Rotary beyond our club and participating in District 5240 activities is one way to broaden your knowledge and involvement in Rotary. Click here to find out more.

The Rotary Club of San Luis Obispo, Rotary Club of San Luis Obispo de Tolosa, and Rotary Club of San Luis Obispo Daybreak celebrated the completion of a major project with a ribbon cutting ceremony on June 7.

Over the course of the last several months, Rotary Clubs from the Central Coast down to Mexico and the SLO County Office of Education came together to replace and enlarge an existing amphitheater at the Rancho El Chorro Outdoor School that is operated by the County Office of Education. The new amphitheater consists of a new stage and backdrop and upgraded electrical service. The project was constructed through the volunteer labor and financial assistance of Rotarians coupled with generous donations by a number of local businesses. This is the latest of many projects that the three Rotary clubs have completed in the San Luis Obispo area, the others include an exercise course at Laguna Lake Park, an Airport Viewing Platform at the SLO Airport, the Rotary Community Garden in Meadow Park and the Rotary Bandstand in Mitchell Park.

SLO Daybreak is proud to announce that four of its members recently completed the Master PRLS program over a weekend-long session in Bakersfield. Congratulations to John Mascarenas (president 2016-17), Linda Wilson (president elect 2017-18), Dave Nilsen (president elect nominee 2018-19), and  Leslie Coe (president elect nominee designate 2019-20). This is a true testament to our club's ongoing commitment to excellence and that of our leaders for the next three years. The Practical Relevant Leadership Skills course is offered by Rotary District 5240 and provides a training environment for Rotarians to learn and develop skills that are useful on a personal and professional level and that come in handy for Rotarians in every level of leadership in their clubs.
 
Other club graduates of the Basic PRLS and Master PRLS  program include Mike Alamo, Bill Almas, Thom Brajkovich, Brian Conroy, Craig Darnell, Robin Dudley, John Eichler, Bob Harway, Doug Hoffman, Berni Ann Lewis, Charlene Rosales, Annie Shanks, Harry Sharp, Doug Shaw, Steve Sicanoff, and Liz Summer.

Five years since its debut, Rotary Club Central is getting a big upgrade
When we introduced Rotary Club Central in 2012, it revolutionized goal tracking and planning for clubs and districts — no more filling out paper club-planning forms or passing along boxes of historical club information every time a new leader took office. Rotary Club Central offered clubs and districts a quantifiable way to begin measuring local and global impact, specifically membership initiatives, service activities, and Rotary Foundation giving. But as with any technological advancement, in a few short years, Rotary Club Central began to show its age, and Rotarians took notice. They...
Rotary International Board adopts new zone structure
At its January 2017 meeting, the Rotary International Board of Directors adopted a new zone structure for Rotary clubs. Rotary bylaws require the Board to complete a comprehensive review of the 34 Rotary zones no less often than every eight years to ensure that each zone has an approximately equal number of Rotarians. The Board’s previous review of the zones occurred in 2008. The Board earlier approved the creation of three regional workgroups to develop rezoning proposals for Asia, Europe/Africa, and the Americas. These workgroups comprised one representative (either a current director,...
