At today’s meeting, Membership Chair Ceta Dochterman and President Dwight Perry welcomed Marco Jaramillo as the newest Red Badge member.  He was sponsored by Randy Vanderbilt with a classification of Construction.  
Marco was born in Mexico and moved to San Francisco at age 8 where he lived until he graduated from the School of the Arts in Twin Peaks.  He then moved to Castro Valley when he got a job with Randy Vanderbilt.  Marco started as a laborer and over the years progressed to painting, framing, and learned all of the trades while working for Randy.  Marco appreciates Randy for the training over the years in the construction business and introducing him to Rotary. He has helped Randy with the Rowell Ranch Rodeo Parade for many years as a volunteer.  Marco "constructed" a relationship with Corrine, his fiancé, when he met her 7 years ago at Pete’s Hardware, where she was working. They have a wedding coming up on October 16th!     
Please make the time to introduce yourself to Marco when you have a chance.
