Playa Venice Sunrise
Cup of Joe Sip #33


Dear Rotarians and Friends,

This Sip a just quick reminder for some of our happenings during this month! Hope to see many of you!

Before we do that, I wanted to mention how special the last Wednesday meeting was: The rain was pouring hard. We couldn’t even access the regular entrance or our storage bin! In my mind, I thought this would understandably be a low key meeting. The opposite happened: Tracey and Josue set the tone with a kindness inspiration and we all took the kindness pledge. The room was full of members and many guests in person and on Zoom. We added a wonderful member to our club: Daryn Fillis. The craft talk of Mary-Catherine was heartwarming and we discovered many layers of her life and we are so lucky to have her as a member. Last but not least, The kindness exploded with an unprecedented influx of Happy Bucks followed by the raffle ticket winners donating their winnings to our guests out of Kindness. We all left filled with gratitude and the will to bring this Kindness forward in our environments!
