Dear Friends,
 
This last week we have been devastated. With the shooting last week and fires raging in several areas of California, there is a lot to grieve. If you or a loved one are needing any help whatsoever as a result of these disasters, please do not hesitate to contact Matt Schauer (714 486-9037) with requests. The Rotary District 5280, among others, are putting together networks and resources to support those in need, and we want to ensure you have the support you require. See below for more details about ways to get involved.
 
And yet, with Rotary, we have much to celebrate. 
 
This week we have the pleasure of meeting the third and last of our District grant scholarship recipients. And with Student of the Month upon us once again this week, we have yet another opportunity to meet more of our future community leaders from our nearby high schools.
 
So it's little wonder we have the honor and pleasure to welcome a new member to our club this week as well. Lisa Williams, the pastor at the San Pedro United Methodist Church, came to our club through Chuck Brisken, and has attended numerous meetings already! She has a great heart, positive and uplifting spirit, and is very excited to join our club.
 
Please make sure to attend this week's meeting to congratulate our scholarship recipients and welcome our new member. In spite of the devastation, we have much to celebrate and be inspired by. 
 
See you Thursday!
