February- March  2023 Update
Club Members Helping in Mexico
Joe reported that they were back and had a successful and fun trip. The group of seven (Kevin O’Brien, Bill Johnston and wife, Austin Stowell, EJ Dieterle and wife, Rose Mortilla, Jim Holley* and myself) achieved our goals of helping at Dr. Nancy Harris’s Freed Clinic, and also having some fun things around La Paz and crossing over to the Pacific coast to see many Gray Whale cows and calves in the lagoon there. They will give a more detailed presentation to the Club when photos (and alibis) organized.
They did take $700 worth of Children’s multi vitamins and prenatal vitamins to be distributed. They also bought $700 worth of supplies for our work day at the clinic.
They attended the meetings of two of La Paz’s five Rotary Clubs which was good social grace for them and great networking for Nancy and her staff, Francoise and Adriana.
* Jim Holley is a wonderful man Joe knows from his large role in Red Cross and from Odd Fellows. Jim was an international executive in HR and is proficient in Spanish. He is not a Rotarian but fit and pitched right in.
Club Members Saving Our  Rain Soaked Storage Unit
Bill and Doug stayed on the job until after dark this evening to get it covered with four sheets of plywood to protect it overnight until our roll roofing arrives tomorrow to finish the job!

Kudus to the team! 
NEXT DAY - NOW IT"S FIXED. The new shed roof is working, no new water inside and waterlogged floor is drying out.
Thanks Joe, for coordinating this!  And many, many thanks to Bill and Doug!

Pumpkin Festival 2022 - Rotary Club of HMB Chowder Booth
Happy Post Pumpkin Festival! 
Now that the dust has begun to settle, I wanted to congratulate everyone and say thank you to all for supporting our Chowder booth!  By supporting, I mean, working your @#$%& off to help raise funds for our club! As per Steve and Mary, our gross income at this point is: $23,622!
That's absolutely INCREDIBLE!
Of course, we still need to deduct our expenses, which will come in around $4000, but even after that, WE MADE A TON OF MONEY!
We couldn't have done this without EACH and EVERY one of you who worked tirelessly to order, organize, plan, take delivery, cut, prep, cook and serve the milieu of people who bought our clam chowder.
As always, we've come away with several suggestions for next time, including more double boilers and more tabasco/tapatio sauce. If you have a suggestion, please feel free to send to me. That way I can compile to keep for future reference.
In the meantime, please enjoy this glorious morning and bask in our success, which is completely due to THE BEST ROTARY CLUB IN THE WORLD!
PP/PE Liz Schuck
PS per President Krystlyn, we'll have a mini celebration at Thursday's meeting!
