Ms. Guerrero holds a Masters in Public Administration and a certificate in Human Resources Management from Notre Dame De Namur University in Belmont, California, with a Bachelor of Science in Criminal Justice & Sociology (Criminology) from San Jose State University in San Jose, California.

Caitlen Vreeburg (Giacomino), Program Director, is a  life-long resident of the Coastside. Caitlen attended Farallone View, Cunha, and Half Moon Bay High before graduating from San Francisco State University with a degree in Criminal Justice. Caitlen began her youth-oriented career by serving as a summer camp counselor for the Half Moon Bay Parks and Recreation Division, working her way up to become the much-loved summer camp director. Prior to becoming the program director for the Boys & Girls Club, Caitlen worked in the after-school program at Sea Crest School, a private K-8 school in Half Moon Bay, and assisted in teaching kindergarten physical education classes. In her free time, Caitlen enjoys the outdoors with her husband and two dogs.

US REPRESENTATIVE JACKIE SPEIER

President Paul Wrubel introduced a "really special person" as the day's speaker, Congresswoman Jackie Speier, 14th District, California. He began with some general information about her: she is a Democrat, has been with the California State Senate,  and in 2008 took her House of Representatives seat. She was born in San Francisco into an apolitical family that included a survivor of genocide in Armenia, was named for Jackie Kennedy (Onassis), earned her college degree at the University of California, Davis and was pronouncd by President Paul to be a "terrific, one-of-a-kind representative."
 
For her part, Speier happily noted that, given an excuse to come to the Coastside, she'd be there.  She was accompanied by District Director and aide Brian Perkins.
 
President Paul asked that questions from the listeners be put on cards and passed up to her. She began by noting Half Moon Bay Rotarians' contributions to their new public library. Then, noting that "this county is a remarkable place," she reminded the listeners to remember that when they see incidents like this week's events -- pipe bombs mailed to someone the sender disliked, the Kentucky resident who shot two African Americans and the shooter who killed 11 Jews at a Shabbat service. "All of us know, this isn't our America," a sentiment we all  need to step up and articulate, she said emphatically, remarking how events were indicative of what she called "a seismic shift going on."  This kind of  thing isn't good for our country, where people have the right to differing opinions, she said.

OCTOBERFEST

The annual Oktoberfest meeting was held at Cameron’s  restaurant.  Joe Brennan and Bill Johnston adroitly handled the greeter responsibilities. Since we were lacking unofficial flag, Warren Barmore was forced to lead the pledge to a pair of American flag boxing gloves. It worked. In honor of world polio day (October 23) Joe Brennan read a poem by Richard Daggert:
 
These are my braces,
They set me free
But, these are my braces,
They are not me.
 
Without my braces, 
I sit in my chair, 
without my braces,
life is not fair.
 
But, put on my braces,
And I’m just like the others
Put on my braces,
And I run like my brothers.
 
Well, not exactly,
I’ll have to admit, no,
Well, not exactly,
’ cause I had polio.
 
Warren told us a story about looking at a picture from the 1950s of a roomful of iron lungs. Two weeks later there was a power blackout and everyone died. “We make a difference.”

CLIFF NOTES

PUMPKIN FESTIVAL 2018: ROTARY CHOWDER BOOTH

To Fantastic Rotarians:
As you may already know, we sold out at 3:48pm on Sunday!  In the process we made the most money ever and the credit goes to the "we" word in that boast.  Everybody chipped in so well and we want to acknowledge all of that on Thursday at the Library.
This club and this membership has a lot of reasons to be very proud so let's join in for some unabashed self-praise on Thursday when we will granting "Chowderhead" Awards to all who helped so generously.  If you are looking for a quality human being, check out the first mirror!
President Paul
