Just another week...




Dear Rotarians,

A quick recap and announcement to document “just another week at Playa Venice.” For many clubs, this would’ve been or will be a major week to celebrate… but for our club, the energy and enthusiasm every single week is amazing and the fun never stops!

Club President - Let’s be a Family!





Don’t miss this week’s exceptional Scholarship meeting. Almost all of our 23 recipients will be present with their families to receive their award. We all need to be there and welcome these future leaders the Rotary way and make them feel at home. As Gail G says: This will be a sure “Rotary Moment” for all of us!

Don’t miss this Saturday’s Pancake Breakfast at Fire Station 63 in Venice. Come to volunteer and/or invite your Family & Friends to enjoy. Questions? Ask President-Elect Hilton or Tracey!






A brave group of members stayed up 2 nights to deliver wheelchairs to the Vets traveling to DC and to welcome them back two days later. Thank you first to Gwen’s leadership and to the “Dream Team”: Melissa, Bobbie & Dale, Garrett, Martha, Rob & Gail! Thank you also Bonnie for storing the wheelchairs and lending the truck.


A very happy fellowship event! it also capped our fundraising week at Tony Ps. 




A weekend of fun, fellowship and meetings with Rotarians from all over the District. It was the culmination a successful year under the leadership of Governor Olivia.  We also welcomed Makiko as the upcoming Governor. A special thank you to Nora and Doug MacLellan who prepared our table for “Hospitality Night.” Gail Brooks and Jerry Jen were both program presenters. Throughout my conversations with many Rotarians, I could witness everyone’s admiration for our club’s leadership and example to follow in the District. Last but not least, the District paid tribute to all those who left us this year, including our dear Howard!

Next Year, the conference will be held at the Biltmore Hotel in Downtown LA, so it will be easier for many members to attend.
