Every week, Rotarians learn about different different topics of interest through speakers that are invited to our Tuesday meetings. The subject matter can range from hot button community issues, personal well being, Rotary-related events and candidate debates to hearing from nonprofit organizations, city and county staff or elected officials or our own members providing a "craft talk" and sharing more about themselves and their hobbies. The wide spectrum provides a way for our club members to be informed on local and worldwide issues, as well as just to learn something fun and interesting. If you have ideas for guest speakers, contact Matt Janetski. Guest speakers are invited to join us for our regular breakfast meeting starting at 7:00am with the speaking time from 8:00-8:20am with another 5 minutes for Q&A. As a thank you for each guest speaker, President Liz donates a book to Literacy for Life (formerly the SLO Literacy Council). This local organization serves our entire county and provides tutoring in English language skills for adults, whether they be native English speakers or non-English speakers.

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. Here are some ways you can do so:
- Attend a Rotary District 5240 meeting, seminar or PRLS class
- Attend a SLO Daybreak fundraiser
- Visit a Board of Directors or a club committee meeting
- Participate in a club community service project - local or international
- Attend an Interact or Rotaract meeting
- Have "Coffee with President Liz"
- Go to an online meeting such as Rotary e-Club One or E-Clubs around the World
Remember to notify our club secretary, Leslie Coe, when you do a make up. Historically, our club had the highest rate of attendance in District 5240, but some club members need to make a better effort to get us back up to the upper 90+ percentile! And sorry folks, attending social events or being somewhere and running into a few other Rotarians doesn't count. 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 strong attendance - we want everyone to participate and get the most out of your Rotary membership.

Rotary districts mobilize to support survivors of Ecuador, Japan quakes
After a series of three earthquakes -- two in Japan and one in Ecuador -- killed hundreds of people, injured thousands, and caused billions of dollars in damage late last week, Rotary members in those regions have created disaster relief funds to help survivors. In Ecuador, the powerful 7.8-magnitude quake that struck Saturday night has killed more than 400 people, with 2,500 injured. Those figures are expected to rise. Rotary District 4400 established a service fund to raise money for relief efforts. Contact District Governor Manuel A. Nieto Jijon for information on how to donate. In Japan,...
