Our exchange students, Lukas Kruse and Giana Maria Perrero were today’s program.

Lukas is from Bassum, Germany. He is almost 19 and has a brother, 21, who is disabled. They have three exchange students at his home right now. They are from Argentina. The pets in his family are a Maine Coon cat and a dog. We got to see several pictures of home, family and his travels. Lukas likes sports, especially windsurfing and diving in the Caribbean. He also likes running. He is a bit of a nerd, like his dad. His travels have included exploring Germany, Croatia, Russia, England, Holland and the Caribbean. He thanked us and his host family and says he has really enjoyed his stay.

Rotary Coastside Fundraiser

President Paul Wrubel reminded us that three weeks ago he announced that our annual fundraiser, Magic of the Coastside, was not happening this year and told us to stay tuned...
 
He had worked with the event staff on the social meeting of Bocce at Mullins at Ocean Colony and found them helpful and professional. He brought a plan for the successor of Magic to the Rotary Club of Half Moon Bay Board of Directors for approval. With Board approval, Paul presented this new concept at today's meeting. This is a big idea, working title 2019 Rotary Coastside Celebration, designed to reach a wider audience instead of going back to the same folks over and over again as our local non-profits do.

Jeffery Coffin

Our speaker was Jeffery Coffin. Jeff is originally from from Bar Harbor and grew up in Utah. He became wealthy at a young age by buying and selling companies. He got to a point where he was unhappy and ready to die. The desert called to him so he liquidated assets, sold companies, gave assets away and set out for the desert. After 28 days with very little water or food and a bird “yelling” at him, something clicked. He threw a rock at the bird, hit it. and devoured it. He was 100 miles from civilization and still felt embarrassed by that act. It was a turning point. That night he realized he wanted to live, but was still done with civilization.

As time went on, he discovered beetles were tasty. Stalking wild horses led him to water holes and wildlife. He made it a point to not stay in one place more than two weeks at a time as a way to diminish his impact on the environment. He prepared for the future by grinding dried crickets into powder to save and use for protein.
