June 5th our Rotary Club had 2 employee honorees as our guests. They were recognized by fellow Rotarians, Linda Pearson with the Corona Regional Medical Center nominated Pilar Triguero and Jeff Fraser with Master Stream ERP nominated Heidi Juarez. These folks were nominated for their outstanding work at these companies. Bill Steinkirchner owner of Stone Church, also nominated 2 employees who could not join us for our meeting. Well done everyone!
Last week’s speaker was none other than our own fellow Rotarian, Bill Steinkirchner. Bill is the proud owner of our local microbrewery Stone Church Brewing. He spoke to us about his upcoming event, Amber Waves of Grain Craft Beer Festival. It will be held at Dos Lagos on Nov. 3rd from 12:00 pm to 4:30 pm. Tickets are $40. This is the third year that this wonderful fundraiser will take place. All net proceeds are given to veteran non-profit groups registered 501 (c) 3. This event is a time for all armed forces veterans to come together and help those who have also served. The individuals that will be pouring the microbrewery beers are veterans themselves and they will be able to display their memorabilia to share with everyone. There will be 40 microbreweries and a few home brewers this year as well. This fundraiser is staffed by all volunteers. There will be a parade beforehand to kick off the event. All-American Riders is one of the non-profits that works with this event, as is Christmas Dinner for Homeless Vets. I had the pleasure of attending last year, and it was a lot of fun! I’m looking forward to going again this year. Great event for a great cause! Thanks Bill, a true act of service above self.
