A dynamic and informative 90-minute breakfast program geared to San Luis Obispo business people. Held on the fourth Thursday of each month, local experts focus on a wide variety of community and business topics.
Deadline to register is 5 p.m. July 23.
This month’s topics include:
IS RECYCLING BROKEN?
China’s no longer taking our recyclable trash. Most of what you toss in the recycling bin ends up in the landfill. Headlines like these abound recently, so what’s the deal? Is recycling still worth it? IWMA Program Director Patti Toews will sort through the mess and offer updated guidance on recycling do’s and don’ts.
AND NOW FOR THE TRAFFIC REPORT…
Complaints about traffic seem to be on the rise. But is it really getting so bad out there? We asked Jake Hudson from SLO City Public Works to give us the straight dope, from trends in various parts of the city to forecasts for the future. There may be a few surprises, so buckle up.
BEHIND THE WHEEL IN BUSINESS AND ON THE TRACK
For SLO native Karen Rizzoli, life revolves around cars. There’s the third-generation family business, Rizzoli’s Automotive, which she runs with brother Kyle. And there’s the family hobby, car racing, which she recently picked up again. We asked her to share the highlights and obstacles of life in the fast lane.
CELEBRATING ASTRONAUTS? REMEMBER SLO’S OWN
Saturday marks 50 years since one of humankind’s most celebrated achievements – landing on the moon. But many people don’t realize we have our very own moon traveler right here in SLO. SLO History Center Executive Director Thomas Kessler will share the lunar history behind Mission Plaza’s moon tree.
IT’S A CERTAINTY OF LIFE – AND IT’S NOT TAXES
Most of us prefer not to think much about death, especially our own. But addressing a few key issues beyond the legal affairs can smooth the final stages of life for you and your loved ones. Hospice of SLO County Executive Director Kris Kington-Barker will tell us what we should consider well before our time comes.
YOO TUBE | VIOLINIST GOES FROM STAGE TO SCREEN
Renowned violinist and Festival Mozaic Music Director Scott Yoo has been taking musical journeys around the world for “Now Hear This,” a new PBS program debuting this fall. He’ll share how the festival – and SLO – will be featured in the show, then treat us to some music inspired by his travels.
