Meeting of August 5th
By Pam Goodman
This was a one of a kind experimental meeting that required all hands on deck to put it in place. Our first ever ‘hybrid’ meeting—in person or on Zoom and it worked famously, especially with help from Kendra, Nelson, Ken and his able assistant, Hilary who is far beyond capable.

A visiting Rotarian from Los Gatos morning club, Sanjay Khandelwal was checking us out as he now works from home near the summit. Let’s hope he was impressed! 
Our Friend Marie Moseley was with us as well, her first visit since March 2020! 
Craig Bagley, our Sargent at Arms, was the first one to the meeting as in his words ”I wanted to make sure the meeting was going to run smoothly”.  It did indeed, Craig.  Thanks for your dedication!
Trisha Glassey brought Edie Stein to our meeting via Zoom.  Edie is a Soquel High School and took time took time from her leadership orientation at school today to talk to us about the RYLA experience this summer.  The program was "Leading with LUV" for Location, Unlearning and Learning, and Vision and Voice.  When asked  about the location theme,  she said it was about being a better leader by finding happiness and peace by going to locations you love.
Dr. Art did not have a thought for the day as he “left it at home”. 
Sam told a very familiar joke (video) then proceeded to play a rip-roaring rendition of the Welcome Song.

Anissa Novak entertained us as detective, grilling us on little known Olympic factoids. 
Dagmar Leguillon announced this Saturday’s Beach Cleanup at Rio Del Mar beach. August 7th at 10 am so be there or be square (or at least missed).
Our presentation was titled ‘Health and Home: Building Wellness in the Heart of Live Oak’.  The speakers were Leslie Connor, CEO of Santa Cruz Community Health and Laura Marcus, CEO of Dientes Community Dental Care. These are two very smart and capable individuals who (along with MidPen housing) have been the driving force behind plans to build a unique housing facility on Capitola Rd in Live Oak.  This site is breaking ground soon and will have 57 affordable housing units,  a health center and dental facility. Therefore, comprehensive, integrated healthcare will be available for up to 10,000 patients including pediatrics, optometry and behavioral health to name just a few of the services.  The clinics will be built first then the housing.  The entire project should be completed by 2023. 
The best news is that we all have the ability to participate in funding this project as there is a $500,000 Challenge Match issued by Carol Fuller in honor of Cynthia Mathews. 
It was so exciting to hear of this most innovative and inclusive project.  We were all so very impressed by the vision of our speakers and the tenacity it took to make this project happen. 
Dientes, Santa Cruz Community Health, and MidPen Housing are partnering to create 1500 Capitola Road, a vibrant 3.7-acre health and housing complex in the heart of Live Oak. This crucial first step toward increasing access to healthcare and affordable housing in Santa Cruz County will provide healthcare for up to 10,000 patients, along with affordable housing for 157 people.

An announcement/discussion point was made at the end of our meeting that due to Delta Variant, Rotarian's RSVP's are needed more than ever so the board can identify two things; a ) Will members feel comfortable attending in person meetings at Seascape and b ) if they are, we need an updated head count since we need 15 confirmed, RSVP'd Rotarians by Sunday night in order to have the meeting as a hybrid and not go to Zoom Only. 

To accomplish this update you can either email Kendra and/or Ken, OR go into the Google Form and update your answers to reflect whether your opinion has changed on in person attendance, and then add to the comments whether you feel comfortable still attending as an in-person at the "hybrid meeting" or whether you will go Zoom, due to health concerns.
