Thank you to everyone who donated both time, table settings, food, labor, auction and opportunity drawing items and bought tickets to make this years' Afternoon Tea Fundraiser such an amazing success! Thank you to Noah Homes for letting us use your wonderful facilities too! We celebrated Brittany Catton Kirk, who has created Sunlight Retreats for Victims of Rape; Luke and Alex Tchang for the amazing work they have been doing to teach on-line as well as interact personally with orphaned girls living in Grace Girls' Home in Sri Lanka; and Simona Valanciute who is the Executive Director of San Diego Oasis, an enrichment program for people over the age of 50.
We were treated to live music performed by the musicians of the Diego Hills High School Band, delicious finger sandwiches, scones and small dessert items served by many of the men in our club, with assistance by some staff members of Harriet Tubman Charter School and Rotaract members of the SDSU Rotaract club. There was both black tea, and herbal tea, poured ably from multiple ceramic teapots, and all of the table settings came from members' china. This event is surely a labor of love! 
 
 
  
 
  
 
 
What an amazing event! Elena Lujan-Alba, Manuela Bump-Murillo,  Elly Dotseth (and her husband Mike) from La Mesa Sunrise, and Elana Levens-Craig from the Santee /Lakeside Rotary Club flew to Toronto, Ontario (Canada) to attend the Rotary International Convention. They roomed together in an AirBandB within walking distance of the convention venues. The plane trip there was very late, but we happily got to our destination at last! We were all able to participate in stadium sized ceremonies, break out sessions (to learn more about how we can "Be The Inspiration") learn about our incoming RI President, listen to international speakers praising the good work of Rotary International, and having a great time visiting the Hall of Friendship! Elana went to a lot of big events and thoroughly enjoyed telling us all about it! After the convention, Manuela was met by her husband Hugo, and they joined Elly and her husband Mike on a bus tour to visit Niagara Falls, do a little wine tasting, and learn more about the cultural differences between Canadians and US Citizens.

 The mission of Rotary is service! 
Project proposals can now be submitted to the Projects Committee Chair (Elly Dotseth.) This committee will meet every three months (or as needed,) to review submissions. If the submissions have all of the necessary information, and they meet the Rotary International guidelines for "avenues of service," they will be brought to the Board of Directors for approval. Once approved, if funds are available, they will be funded. Most of these will be funded by our LMSR Foundation. Every effort will be made to present these projects to our membership at our Friday meetings, to ensure you all are informed and have the opportunity to either donate funds, or help with the activities themselves (or both!) The more donations we receive to our LMSR Foundation, the more projects can be funded. If you want your donation applied to one of these projects, please inform Christine Evans in writing when you give your donation!
District Grants for larger proposals are currently only available for our club through our District Designated Funds (DDF). The deadline to apply for DDF is July 31
