Your Weekly Update!

September 9th, 2022

Dear Rotarians,

Lots of club news today, so grab your Pumpkin Spice Lattes and get comfortable. And, yes, they are already available at Starbucks. 

First up, a report from the weekend.

Sweet Cases With Rotary & Together We Rise

This was a fantastic collaboration of Rotary Clubs from our District 5280, Together We Rise (the largest foster care organization in the U.S.), and The Salvation Army. Rotarians like Maribel Khoury, who is the President of the new Rotary Club of Mental Health, brought her entire family and it was heartwarming to see kids decorating these bags for other kids. 
The event was so well attended what was supposed to take two hours, took an hour! The Assistant Governor, Alex J. Parajon was in attendance building bikes and all around it was a very special day. We made contact with the people at Together We Rise and The Mental Health Club and we'll be looking into whether they have facilities they service in the South Bay that we can work with. This would be a fabulous community service event for the holidays if we're looking for another.

New Member Application

A new membership application from Rick Humphrey has been approved by the board. This serves as one of the two announcements required per PVP Rotary bylaws. Please send any written objections to membership chair, Julia Parton, by 9/26.
