Good morning everyone. Normally, it would have been Bruce Barber’s column yesterday, however, I thought I put it up, but I guess I didn’t. (Sorry Bruce). It’s started out to be a bit chilly, but the sun’s up and hopefully we’ll have a warm, slightly windy day for today “Steak in the Park“. In addition to a quality steak, there’s all the fixings that go with it and I’m pretty sure you’ll be able to buy “adult beverages” as Dario would say. After the meal, they will have a silent auction, so be generous as all funds go to different projects the Rotary Club is sponsoring for the community. If you don’t have your ticket yet, better beat feet to get one, as they are probably going to be sold out. Be there or be square! Photo by Kat Hammontre.
I’m back! Good morning everyone and I’m not certain what kind of weather we’ll have for the day, as I’m writing this at 10:18 pm on Sunday evening. I feel like I’ve been absent for a month and thank you Bruce and Dario for helping me out (it hasn’t been a month, but I like to exaggerate a it). If you didn’t catch either articles, you can always click on their names and see them all. Margaret Reish Risling So, where to do I start. I guess I should read my last column so I don’t do the “pete and repeat” thang. Our next soiree in little old San Felipe is the famous “Steak in the Park” which is a San Felipe Rotary event. It’s about the tenth year, I believe and it’s held at the Hayward City Park, next to the fire station. Years ago, Bill Gabbard (may his generous heart and soul rest in peace) would drive to the United States and bring back the best steaks he could find – he was the head cook. Kay Gabbard and so many other volunteers (too many to mention) provided all the fixings; I tended bar for them a couple of years and it was a great event. There have been rumors (I heard one tonight and straightened him out) this year’s Steak on the Park was canceled for lack of participation. Not true. It’s Thursday, February 26 beginning at 1:00 to 4:00 and the cost is $14.00 (dollars). Tickets sell out fast. They had 475 at last year’s event. I just found the poster and I was off by two years. It’s actually the 12th Annual Steak in the Park and in case you’re not aware (as I wasn’t completely) of all the different community services they provide, check out their Facebook Page under “Rotary Club of San Felipe”. They helped put a roof on the rehab center; bought shoes for our rowing team; donated to the Cancer Center and much more. All funds collected from this event will go for Rotary projects to benefit the
