In the News

 
"PRLS" stands for Potential Rotary Leaders seminars and is a program offered by Rotary District 5240. The goal of PRLS, begun in 1993, is to provide a set of training sessions so current and future Rotary leaders could learn to become more effective in their leadership roles. The Basic PRLS course is followed by five, one-day Master PRLS sessions covering Leadership, Leading a Meeting, Public Speaking, Rotary-Your Club and You, and Communications.
 
Classes are open to Rotarians, spouses, Friends of Rotary, Rotaract and Interact Club members. The instruction is designed to improve individual leadership skills that are broad based and not just Rotary specific. Participants have found substantial value in the many practical applications of information presented throughout professional settings. SLO Daybreak will reimburse any club member in good standing who has completed Master PRLS. Click here for a 2014-15 schedule of classes.

From District Governor Loretta: "Rotary International President, Gary Huang, has selected, "Light Up Rotary" as the theme for 2014-2015. In his first message to our 1.2 million members in this month's edition of The Rotarian magazine, he reminds us there are so many people who need help, we sometimes think the task is too overwhelming and we can do nothing. But we can do something. We can light a candle for those who are in darkness. In my Rotary life, the story of the starfish has always resonated because it tells us we can make a difference even if it is only one starfish at a time. We can bring hope where there is despair and light the way through our Rotary service. It is the way of our District 5240. It is the Rotary way." 
 

 
 
 
On July 27 SLO Daybreak volunteers participated in United Way of SLO County's annual KidSpree event. 250 children and teens grades K-12 were provided with a $100 gift card to Kohl's to purchase new school clothes and accessories. Volunteers served as shopping assistants, making sure the kids got all the things they needed on their shopping list. The event takes place every year early in the morning before the store opens, at both the San Luis Obispo and Paso Robles locations. SLO Daybreak once again sponsored 10 children with a donation of $1,000 and has been a longtime supporter as a club and individually through members' own businesses. Since 1997, this event has served over 2,000 children throughout the county. For more information and photos click here.
 

 
 
In the 2013-14 Rotary year, SLO Daybreak provided over $41,000 in charitable giving as a club of less than 50 active members. SLO Daybreak also consistently ranks highly among District 5240 Rotary clubs for annual giving per capita. Last year, this is what our club provided to the local and international communities:
  • $11,250 in scholarships to Pacific Beach, Mission Preparatory and San Luis Obispo High School graduating seniors and students attending the Rotary Youth Leadership Awards (RYLA)

  • $5,297 in grants to local elementary and high school teachers

  • $6,000 to local nonprofit organizations

  • $1,000 towards a program that supports direct giving to local homeless services

  • Hundreds of dollars and in-kind donations to local programs such as United Way of SLO County's KidSpree and Prado Day Center

  • Thousands of dollars towards international humanitarian relief, programs and projects such as the Rotary International Foundation, PolioPlus, Shelter Box and a community kitchen in Ajijic, Mexico

  • Volunteerism with the Food Bank Coalition of SLO County's Holiday Food Drive and Hunger Walk, the SLO Downtown Association's Concerts in the Plaza, United Way's Stuff the Bus, SLO County YMCA's garden entrance, Hospice of SLO County's SLO Concours and many more charitable activities in San Luis Obispo

The club raises funds for charitable giving through member dues, the individual generosity of its members and two fundraisers - Casino Night and the Annual Fall Classic Charity Golf Tournament. Visit our website and Facebook page often to keep up with our activities and fundraising efforts.

Restoring vision to hundreds in China
Seeing an elderly Tibetan woman weep with joy when cataract surgery restored her vision after 10 years is the kind of moment Dave Razo will never tire of. For several summers Razo, a member of the Rotary Club of Warner Robins, Georgia, USA, traveled to rural northwest China with a team from Georgia-based nonprofit Gansu Inc., to provide free sight-restoring cataract surgery to some of the country's poorest residents. In 2012, after 22 years and 6,000 successful procedures, Gansu's founder, ophthalmologist William Conrad, retired and discontinued the organization's operations. But Razo didn't...
World Polio Day: Health officials laud polio eradication achievements, point to disease’s endgame
After a year of shrinking polio cases worldwide, the crippling disease is now on the cusp of being eradicated, said top health officials at Rotary's second annual World Polio Day event on 24 October. At a special Livestream program -- World Polio Day: Make History Today -- Rotary leaders joined global health experts and celebrity singers to hail the progress of the Global Polio Eradication Initiative. After nearly 30 years, the GPEI, which includes Rotary, the World Health Organization, UNICEF, U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, is on...
Dynamic young club uses social media to grow
Erin Mills had just finished teaching for the day in Montevideo, Uruguay, when her smartphone buzzed with a message. An impromptu gathering to watch Uruguay's World Cup soccer match was being organized. Through the power of a mobile messaging app, a majority of the Rotary Club of Plaza Matriz had soon assembled at a member's home to munch on baked goods and chips while rooting for their national team. That enthusiasm and ability to draw a crowd has made the club, which just received its charter in July, a success in the country's capital city. Made up almost entirely of young professionals,...
