Staying in Touch.

The second virtual meeting of the Rotary Club of Half Moon Bay in  the era of the coronavirus was characterized by input that showed Rotarians were managing to stay busy. It was also and spiced with laughter and personality. Among the Rotarians who Zoomed in -- their electronic arrival announced by the ringing of a doorbell -- were EJ Dieterle, Dianne Bobko, President Ed Daniels, Mary Rogren, John (and Larkin!) Evans, exchange students Micah Warner-Carey (outbound) and Jade Casiez, Rose Serdy, Mitone Griffiths, Dave Dickson, Susan Kealey, Kevin O'Brien, Linda Crose-Anderson, Dave Andrews and Stacy Trevenon.
Stacy offered as an invocation the acknowledgement that from her observation, local Rotarians continue to do what they could to boost spirits and keep morale up at this time for fellow club members, neighbors, co-workers and Coastsiders, -- in retrospect, an invocation-in-action! 
President Ed led the Pledge of Allegiance.
Ed looked over his computer screen, and said he wanted to go around everyone there to check in and see how everyone's doing. The responses were uniformly upbeat and full of fellowship.

Several Half  Moon Bay Rotarians swapped social distancing for Rotary fellowship Thursday by Zooming in at noon for an online meeting. Thanks to tech whiz Mitone Griffiths, President Ed, Dave  Dickson,  Rosi Fontana, Bill Johnston, Linda Crose-Anderson,  Warren Barmore, EJ Dieterle, Ginger Minoletti,  Joe Brennan, John Evans and Stacy Trevenon "gathered" in their own offices  or homes, in a testimonial to creativity, perseverance, resourcefulness and fun Rotary stick-to-itiveness. Mitone set up the online meeting, and the members had only to punch in a number on their computers or cell phones.

Each member rose from their chairs and faced southward, toward flagpoles on the coast, for the Pledge of  Allegiance. For an invocation, Stacy suggested that this whole meeting provided inspiration -- everyone there was cheerfully adapting to circumstance while still focusing on keeping Rotary continuity and good work ongoing. 

To that end, the meeting continued with helpful  information and fun. Linda noted that, while you can get anything online, club members might want to bear local needs in mind.  Despite the pandemic a lot of local store owners are still in business, she says. She recalled the time she was looking for some Uggs and, while walking her dog downtown when she saw a sign about Uggs on a local shop owner's door. She emailed the business, got a response and ultimately went there rather than to Amazon to get her Uggs. Rosi suggested an adult beverage called "quarantini," which should be consumed alone but, she said, is very good. Linda has continued to see clients but in a whole new world in which, she said, we all have to be flexible.

This is Steve’s 30th year as a Half Moon Bay Rotarian, despite holding a full time job in San Francisco. He’s 71 this year and leading a happy, healthy life. His fundamentals of life are family, community, faith, service.  Since Sept. 20, 1984, he has been with AA. 

Family—Steve is married to Kathy. He has a step daughter, biological children and adopted children.  He is obviously proud of all of them and enjoys being a grandparent. 

 Faith—His church is his happy place; he attributes that to the great people. He is on the Board of the Methodist church. 

Work—5 years ago Steve changed firms. He now focuses on real estate law, some corporate, but no more litigation. He gets to do big complicated deals. He has partners and clients from all over the world and has some cultural competency. He now is in a better compensation situation which is less stressful. He plans to take a long step back at 75 and enjoy their place in Lake County. Steve’s father was a great gardener and passed the interest on to Steve so that long step back will include more gardening.
