Happy New Year!

President BeckyRotary Message for February 2016 The featured theme for February in Rotary is Peace and Conflict Resolution. As a Rotarian, you become aware that the projects our clubs do globally contribute to this theme one person, one village at a time. Locally, we strive to remain attentive to the needs of our community. I believe our support of youth services contributes to the successful development and education for our young future leaders in our community!

This month we will hear from Todd Muck (Transportation Agency for Monterey County) about the new rail plan, Jeff Johnson (Citizens Climate Lobby) on global warming, and Don Reynolds (City of Salinas) about the Salinas Vibrancy Plan. We also have some serious planning of our own. For our District Rotary Clubs, we have the mid-year assembly on February 6th. Our club, along with the Corral de Tierra and Downtown Club, will be doing a presentation on our Sanitation Project for Soledad Street.

Our President-Elect, Anne Olsen is making great strides with plans for our Steinbeck’s Home Brew Fest event scheduled for Saturday May 7th. We are anticipating this to be an all-member participation event—a project that each member can contribute his/her time and talent for the success. On the same day as our Steinbeck’s Home Brew Fest, we will also be participating in The Race of Thrones Crapper Derby. The Race of Thrones Crapper Derby is the multi-Rotary Club fundraising event benefiting the Chinatown Sanitation Project. We have scheduled a club assembly this month, and we can use this time to formulate plans for these events.

Thank you all for your kind support. Be a gift to the world!

President Becky
