PAUL HARRIS BOARD DRAWING
See above.

PROGRAM

Judy introduced Len Gentieu and his wife Midge.  Len and Midge own the Pappagallo Motor Yacht in the harbor.  Len has recently finished a book entitled Chasing the Heat which follows his very interesting and diverse cooking career.  Len shared that there are 3 things that he stresses in the book and those are:

            1.         The importance of being persistent.
            2.         The amount of behind the scenes support there is at successful restaurants
            3.         The importance of encouraging restaurant workers.

Len shared that the book started when they landed (sailed into) Morro Bay after a difficult voyage of 19 hours.  He said that he was greeted at the dock by one of the City fathers in a none too welcoming manner – however, since that time he has gotten to be friends with this, so far, unnamed resident.  Len shared a story from his Army days in Korea, when he was asked to cook for a high ranking official, he told a hilarious account of cooking meat and vegetables on a saber and everything going well, until……..things didn’t go well and he had to put out a large fire with a bottle of seltzer.  Afterward he told us that one of high ranking staffers came to the Len’s “hooch” (read home) and Len thought that it was for discipline, but it turned out the he was complimented on his efforts.  Len shared that moment was his finest in the Army, where he learned what true leadership was.
