Happy St. Patrick’s Day Festivities at Cameron’s Irish (for the day) Pub

The stage was turned over to our Master of Ceremonies, Kevin O’Brien who officiated a spirited Limerick contest. Thank you to Robin Jeffs for the wee bit of history on the origin of the Limerick rhyme. It actually started in the village of Limerick and a contest became an annual pub event there. Robin’s Grandmother was from Limerick.We had several participants, the competition was tough!  Erik Piro started with a sweet Coastside rhyme; Kevin  and Paul  Wruble contributed; Dave Andrews slipped in a naughty one about "Charise"; Stacy Trevenan extolled Rotary; Ralph Ely did himself proud on his very first attempt combining Rotary, the Library and Old Age; Kevin ventured into politics with a ditty featuring Bret Kavanaugh; Joe Brennan cleverly recapped Kevin’s bicycle accident.

THE BEST DAY OF MY LIFE
Steven Martin 
 
Article by  Stacy Trevenon

Bill Johnston introduced today's speaker, Stephen Martin, who had been a previous member of our Rotary club, and whom Bill had met some 30 years ago.  In his comments, Bill mentioned several longtime Half Moon Bay Rotarians such as Jug Shoaf. Stephen recounted how he had taken up paragliding and had had an accident, which left him in the hospital and potentially paralyzed. "But I'm happy to report I'm still around," he said humorously. Other memories, both lighthearted and somber, were shared, such as how Bill and Stephen each had daughters. Sadly, Stephen had lost a daughter, but Bill maintained that Stephen always "had a glass-half-full approach to life.  You can't talk to him without feeling better yourself," and Stephen called the accident "the best thing that ever happened to me."

ERIK PIRO AND CHARISE MCHUGH

This program had a decidedly "Chamber of Commerce" bent. First up was Erik Piro. He started with the Rotary club in October 2018. He was not the least bit nervous to be doing his presentation in front of both his current boss, Krystlyn, and his former boss, Charise. Joining the Chamber in April 2017, Erik is the Chamber's Director of Communications.  His job is not only to manage the daily operations of the Chamber, including assisting Chamber members and visitors but also to handle most communications matters. He edits the Coastside Connection, which is the Chambers quarterly publication. He is the voice of the Chamber Podcast. He is the official greeter In the Chamber office.
 
Growing up on the Coastside in Pacifica, a graduate of Terra Nova High School, Erik has a great appreciation for the various outdoor activities that surround the area.  It's no surprise that you will often find him bike riding, spending time at the beach, or exploring one of the Coastside's many scenic spots.
 
Erik has a creative side as well that is expressed through his photography.  He enjoys capturing the natural beauty of the Coastside, whether along the Coastal Trail, in Pillar Point Harbor, or along the country roads of Pescadero. It is his photography that adorns the cover of the Chamber map. He has won a number of awards for his landscape photography work.
