Member Spotlight

    Bud Ackerman
In 1979 two partners and I opened the first retail computer store in Sacramento, CA. We grew quickly to four locations. I used to make the 2 ½ hour drive to Cupertino in the Bay Area often to pick up inventory from Apple and other computer companies. I was raised in Cupertino in the 60’s and my parents still lived there so it worked out well. Often, I would attend computer dealer meetings at Apple and other companies hanging out with Steve Jobs and Bill Gates when they were schlepping their next big invention. In 1985 This new guy showed up on the local talk radio station in Sacramento. He was very funny and talked politics but with deep thought. I remember hearing Rush Limbaugh “With Talent on Loan From GOD” on his very first day in talk radio. You could hear him tapping his pencil while he was thinking and waiting for the next caller. He became very popular and was also a computer customer of ours. He purchased three computers from us over the three years when he was in Sac. He spent every day for two weeks in our store studying just prior to leaving for the bigtime in New York. Everyone had been telling him he needed to go national and he finally did. Last Wednesday he returned his TALENT to GOD.

Greetings my fellow SunUpians,
As we are slowly nearing the end of this Rotary year, once again I want to thank everyone for the awesome job we have been doing as a club in support of our local communities and Rotary as a whole. As a reminder, to make the best even better, club surveys have been sent out for your important input on ways to grow and enhance the Prescott Sun Up Rotary Club. Please take a moment to complete one and send it in.
Also, I ask that everyone keep in mind the upcoming Rotary Week of Service, please join in and let’s make this a week to remember. Please enjoy your week and remember to invite a friend to join us this Wednesday morning.
