  • What a wonderful Visitors Day we had - thank you Susan & Vicky for organizing and Patricia for facilitating. We had 18 guests join us to learn about Rotary and hear our great speaker, Trish Boaz, CEO of the San Dieguito River Valley Conservancy. We look forward to seeing them again!
  • Herb shared some Rotary facts: founded in 1905 in Chicago; 35,000 clubs in the world with 1.2 milliion Rotarians; broken into 500 Districts, 60 clubs in our District of San Diego/Imperial County; focus has been eradication of polio in the world; we are bound by the 4-Way Test - Is it the TRUTH - Is it FAIR to all concerned - Will it build GOODWILL & BETTER FRIENDSHIPS - Will it be BENEFICIAL to all concerned
  • Vicky then shared some club info: We were founded on April 17, 1992; we are small & mighty with a heart for service and feel like a family; we are known for our International Projects & Bocce Tournament; we actively support Just in Time for Foster Youth, Reality Changers, Veteran's Village, Solutions for Change, Hope Without Boundaries, along with many projects in El Salvador and India
  • Our next Blood Drive will be Saturday, April 17, from 9:00-2:30 at the Lomas Santa Fe Plaza
  • Distribution for the school supplies we provided for Casa de Amistad supported students will be a drive-by on Friday, March 12 from 3:00-5:00 at the Solana Beach Presbyterian Church 
  • Trish Boaz  has over 25 years of experience in conservation and environmental protection and coordinated the County's acquisition of over 7,100 acres of open space lands. She updated  us about the San Dieguito Watershed, Lagoon Pond & River Path Del Mar, Coastal Crest Trail, San Dieguito Lagoon, & Multi-Sensory River Path Trail Del Mar. And it was nice to learn that her father was a Rotarian and Rotary played a huge part in her life.
