Arnie is a 4th-generation Sonoma County rancher. He grew up o a dairy and chicken farm in Cotati and since has dedicated himself to the industry that was responsible for putting Petaluma on the map I the early 1900s.

He has stepped up to fill the much-needed role of the representative and advocate for the egg industry in Northern California. Last year, he went on a 4-day trip to Washington D.C, working to convince the powers that be that successful egg production, on a scale, can and should be achieved with animal welfare firmly in mind.

Here in Petaluma, he and his partner at Sunrise Farms produce a million eggs each and every day of the year, providing 90% of the eggs consumed in all of Northern California. Mr. Riebli credits the ability to adapt and fierce dedication to the Petaluma ranching lifestyle for his business surviving the many changes it has undergone since the egg industry’s heyday of the late 1940s.

Law recently passed concerning the poultry industry were “deeply frustrating” to him because, as he explains it, they were motivated by heavy doses of political correctness but were severely light on practical application.

But as Arnie says, “Folks have to eat. Sooner or later, people will realize that food is not produced in the backroom of the local grocer.” He said 219,000 people get added to the world’s dinner table every night. “That’s 80 million a year. Currently the political mechanisms in the way, and if it stays that way, the world will face severe shortages in the near future.”

Backing his conviction that “this country’s greatest asset is our youth,” he has lent his considerable knowledge and boundless energy to the Chamber’s Petaluma Youth Ag Day Passing the ranching tradition and all that it entails on to future generations has been part of his lifelong agenda.

Arnie is the proof that business can take the high road and that an ethically responsible direction can translate to profit – economic profit and cultural profit for any community with its eye on a wholesome future.

Please join us for a fantastic lunch welcoming the man who probably is responsible for the eggs in your fridge!

Brad Dacus can be heard weekly on The Dacus Report on more than 170 radio stations across the country and also as a guest speaker on numerous radio and television programs across the nation. He has appeared on America Live, CBS Evening News, CNN, Dateline NBC, Good Morning America, MSNBC, NBC News, News Talk TV, and The Today Show and numerous times on FOX News.

The Role of Social Media in Today's Politics

Melanie Morgan
Nationally known conservative activist
Former radio personality on KSFO's Morning Show

January 15, 2019  |  11:30 - 1:30
$35  |  Members and their guests $30

Marin Country Club, 500 Country Club Drive, Novato

RESERVATIONS CAN BE MADE BY CALLING 415 878-6220

OUR SPEAKER:  Melanie Morgan will be joining us with a discussion about the role that social media plays in politics and how we should leverage it to our advantage. Melanie was born in Missouri Melanie Morgan
and attended Lindenwood University before moving to the West Coast. Her journalism career started in 1983 when she reported about the Beirut Marine Barracks Bombing that left 241 Marines dead. And while she has covered events in locales such as Mexico, China and Iraq, her main focus is in the US and in the Bay Area.

She was a radio and TV news reporter in the Bay Area for over a quarter of a century having been on the air at KGO for 12 years followed by 14 years at KSFO before budget cuts forced her out ten years ago, yet her voice is immediately recognizable, and she is still best known for co-hosting the ‘Morning Show’ with Lee Rodgers.

Melanie was instrumental in starting the recall of Governor Gray Davis which led to the 2003 California Gubernatorial Recall Election and resulted in Arnold Schwarzenegger replacing Gray Davis. A year later, in 2004, she was one of three founders, and is now the Chairman of, Move America Forward - MAF, a political advocacy group supporting our military and US soldiers in Iraq. Leading a ‘Heroes for the Holidays’ campaign she rallied support and delivered over 100,000 Christmas cards to troops in Iraq that same year. With the start of MAF’s annual star-studded Troopathons in 2008, supported by Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, Mark Levin just to name a few, Melanie succeeded in raising over $1m for US soldiers and Iraqi children. These successes didn’t go unnoticed and in 2014 and 2015 Move America Forward was named ‘Top-rated Nonprofit’ by ‘Great Nonprofits’. In 2016, a new partnership with the Wounded Warrior Project was started to send care packages to troops overseas to show support for those who can’t be with their families during the holidays.

During all of this time, Melanie still found time to co-author ‘American Mourning’ in 2006, a book based on the reactions of two families whose sons were best friends in the Army and died two weeks apart in Iraq. Most of us probably remember Cindy Sheehan, an outspoken anti-war activist and mother of Casey, who is compared to Joseph Johnson, who enlists in the military at age 46 following his son Justin’s death.

Currently, Melanie spends more time on social media platforms and forums such as the 100,000+ member strong ‘StopTheScalpings’ group that she co-founded.
Melanie has always been a strong advocate for the American military, conservative values, and is not holding back criticism of liberals, so please join us for lunch to hear what Melanie Morgan believes we should do in the social media arena to further our cause.
