Ed Harris

Ed hails from St. Louis, Missouri, past home of Anheuser-Busch, Ralston Purina and Boeing. They all left and, after 50 years, he did also! Ed spent 32 years with the Rotary Club of St. Louis, Club #11. He served on the Endowment Fund committee and was the Community Service Chair when he moved west to Nipomo, CA in 2016. Ed spent his working career as a Certified Financial Planner with Edward Jones. He is currently the Community Service Chair for the Rotary Club of Nipomo. Ed says he was introduced to the MBGFR through "sweet swinging" Mike Laughlin. Ed's wife, Kathy, got to know Lynn Laughlin through the local knitting and stitching group. Ed played in both of our Central Coast tournaments this year and says he looks forward to the fellowship and dinners which "hopefully can sooth my ego after hacking it around on the golf course." Welcome, Ed!

Kevin Spencer

Kevin SpencerKevin lived in Rocklin for 25 years, moved to Tucson for six years and then moved to Clovis four and one half years ago to be closer to his kids and grandchildren.  From Kevin: My son and his family have two daughters and a son, and live in Clovis.  Two years ago my daughter, husband and their three daughters moved from Walnut Creek to Scottsdale for her husband's job promotion.  So much for moving back to California to be near them and the six grandchildren.  Looking forward to retirement in just under three years.  I currently enjoy corporate sales for UPS Freight.  I worked at FedEx Freight while in Sacramento.  So when that final day of work arrives I can truly say "I'm Fed-Up!" I look forward to meeting the club members and playing courses I don't normally have a chance to play.  Thanks goes to my club sponsor Jerry Schock who introduced me to the club.  Jerry and I met at the Ridge Creek Golf Club in Dinuba.
