Mike and Bonnie Eisner moved to Nipomo in 1998. While Bonnie ran a floor covering store in Grover Beach, Mike commuted weekly to Los Angeles where he had his floor covering store since 1969. Retirement for both of us came in 2004 when the Grover Beach store was closed, and the Los Angeles store was sold. They both became active in the community with both serving on the SCAC (formerly NCAC). They also participated in the Nipomo Community Park master plan.  There was talk of the need to incorporate Nipomo and Mike started a 501C3 organization called N.I.C.E. His board consisted of many of the strong movers and shakers in Nipomo. Ultimately it was determined that the revenue generated in Nipomo was not enough to form our own city and the group was disbanded. After noticing the removal of trees in the community park the idea of planting new trees in the memory of a person or special event was spread throughout the community. 29 new trees were purchased and planted, and they are still growing today. Mike is currently a member of the Nipomo Lions Club, on the advisory board of Camp Kesem out of Cal Poly, Governor of District IX in the Gyro International organization and belongs to two RV clubs.
