Happy Tuesday Rotarians!
Our club is on our way to greatness! Spoiler alert: we already are. And this week we get to prove it -- to our District Governor Joe Vasquez! Joe and his team will be here on Thursday for three incredibly important reasons:
  1. To share his vision for district 5280 and how we can help accomplish it.
  2. To induct Dominique Marino as a member of our club! and
  3. To induct Steve Goldsmith as a member of our club!
Separate, but equally important, there are several major events coming up. Please keep them on your calendar!
  • Service Opportunity!
    • Looking to read with kids! Oh, you want to do it every month? Well, don't miss this meeting because we have the project for you!
  • Service Opportunity!
    • We will be repeating our Rise Against Hunger event October 6 from 8am-12:30pm (or however much time you can spare)!
      • If you remember our last packing event, we had more than 80 people attend and pack more than 10,000 meals in less than three hours.
      • The energy in the room was palpable, and we actually had more people attend than spots to pack food! 
      • More details to come (from the fantastic Rica Viola)!
  • Fellowship Opportunity!
    • Cook Your Own Meal Night at the Cabrillo Beach Yacht Club
      • The Palos Verdes Peninsula Rotary Club will be having a fun dinner event at the Cabrillo Beach Yacht Club (CBYC) on Wednesday, October 17th starting at 6pm (food options and pricing details are here). 
      • If you'd like to join, please contact CBYC Fleet Captain -- and current San Pedro Rotarian! -- Steve Holmstrom to RSVP by October 9th.
Can't wait to see you on Thursday!
