Cup of Joe Sip #32



Dear Rotarians and Friends,

celebrate our imperfections. Our flaws are part of who we are. I am grateful for them because they help shape me into the person I am today.

I encourage each one to accept to be less perfect, more authentic and have empathy on others' imperfections!

















March 29 @ 7:30 AM

We are on Roll! This Wednesday we are inducting the fourth new member in three weeks. Let's be many to welcome Daryn Fillis.  

Also this week, the speaker is our own Mary Catherine Micka who is doing her craft talk. These are precious moments to discover what made a Rotarian the person they are now!

Join this special Happy Hour and come prepared to challenge Gwen Vuchsas, James Frawley and Ilene Florin who had the best scores last time. We will also raise a glass to remember Howard, who also had excellent scores then. 

You have to register ahead of time to bowl but you are also welcome to drop by without playing for some good fellowship and snacks.




Four members - Helena Goto, Gail Brooks, Claire Date and Lucy Wegner - are now in Belize with Rotarians from all of our district, joining hands to do service projects and fellowship. Here are some pictures they sent but we will have a full update upon their return.
Lucy wrote: "Our Club has a terrific reputation with other clubs. Lots of respect for our success"
Few daring  Rotarians - Vida, Ramona and her niece, Tracey, Michelle and  her husband - braved a windy morning to hike in Pacific Palisades.
For the rest of us, hang in tight because the May Hike will be a family friendly outing in Kenneth Hahn Park with a picnic to follow!
Last weekend, 11 members met at Cantalini's to kickoff the scholarship program. Gail Goldstein, the event chair, explained the details of this big project and distributed tasks to everyone. Volunteer opportunities are still open. Contact Gail or reply to this email.
Clubrunner workshop
Joerg Rose led a very professional workshop to teach how to navigate ClubRunner, our club's Website platform and mobile app. 
During the coming months, we hope to bring bits and pieces of this training to all members during the meetings or by other means.
One thing I learned during this workshop is how to add all the club's events to my calendar! If you wish, you can also do it by copying this link and adding it to your Google or Apple calendar.
