San Luis Obispo
The Rotary Club of San Luis Obispo recently completed construction of a new stage at the Dallidet Adobe and Gardens. The new addition was dedicated with a ribbon-cutting event and reception in the garden of the adobe, with History Center of SLO County members, staff, volunteers and members of the community attending.
The project was funded, managed and staffed by Rotarians, with help from Cal Poly construction management students.
Based on a design by past History Center president Chuck Crotser, the redwood beams echo the wooden porch of the historic Dallidet Adobe.
The stage will provide a safe backdrop for the concerts, educational programs and weddings that are held there.
Madison DeBruin of Atascadero and Sienna Santer of Arroyo Grande have been awarded with the Congressional Award Gold Medal – Congress’ highest award for youth. The award recognizes young people that have dedicated hundreds of hours of service to their communities.
They were honored, along with 323 other recipients from around the nation, at the Youth Wellness Recognition Dinner at the Ronald Reagan Building and International Trade Center in Washington, D.C.
Students from Paulding Middle School in Arroyo Grande recently donated $1,779 to Big Brothers Big Sisters of San Luis Obispo County through their physical fitness fundraising challenge called, “Burpees for a Cause.”
The students raised money by soliciting sponsors who pledge money based on the number of burpees, also known as squat thrusts, completed within a five minute time period.
