Our July monthly service meeting and project was held at Harriet Tubman Village Charter School. This was the beginning of what the school hopes will become a productive edible plants garden to supplement their school's meal program. Our club plans to continue to support this school's students by helping to supply them with the necessary tools and materials to educate students about how to grow healthy food and how to cook meals with that food. The garden needed weeds pulled, soil amended and ice plant moved to fill in empty spaces. We started a collection of "touch and smell" plants for the students to discover how so many plants can be distinguished by how they feel and smell.
 
 
 
                                            
 
                  
                  
         
     
 
 
         
Betty Howland, Elly Dotseth (outgoing co-presidents from 2021-22), along with Marco Samaniego, Ivy Blumberg (Incoming President 2022-23,) and Anna Quintella attended the Governor's Dinner last weekend. Although the traffic on I-5 was pretty congested due to an accident and the Fair, we had a great time!
The dinner was very good and the company was wonderful! We shared the table with members from the La Mesa Rotary Club with whom we shared the Comedy Hypnosis Fundraiser. If you have not attended a District 5340 event, you really owe it to yourself!

On December 4, 2021 over 25 Rotary Clubs traveled down to the Trebol Community between Tecate and Tijuana to build homes for people who needed them. Our own club members Ivy, Elena, and Ivan went down to help build the homes. Ivy brought her husband Paul as well as her son Kellen. Together, the district clubs (Rotary, Rotaract, and Interact) from both north and south of the border worked with the local residents to build the seven homes. After the build, many of the Rotarians broke bread together at the Telefonica Gastro Park and stayed the night at the Grand Hotel in Tijuana. All of this was possible through a partnership with Project Mercy here in San Diego. Click on this link for more information:
