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.

Miles to end polio: $6 million crosses the finish line for polio eradication

Rotary Day at the United Nations highlights the strength of partnerships
To strengthen their 69-year-old partnership, leaders from Rotary and the United Nations met this month in New York City for Rotary Day at the United Nations. The two organizations began working together with the aim of maintaining peace after World War II. Today, the relationship has evolved to include humanitarian work in areas like gender equality, child and maternal health, and disease treatment and prevention. While the UN's Millennium Development Goals are set to expire in 2015, its leaders are preparing for an even more ambitious humanitarian agenda of eradicating extreme poverty by...
A major breakthrough against polio
Rotary and its partners in the Global Polio Eradication Initiative (GPEI) are approaching a significant milestone: the eradication of type 3 wild poliovirus. The last case of polio caused by the type 3 virus was reported in Yobe, Nigeria, on 10 November 2012. "We may have eradicated a second of three; that's a major milestone," said Dr. Stephen Cochi, a senior adviser at the Center for Global Health at the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, speaking to the BBC. Rotary has played an important role in bringing type 3 polio close to extinction. PolioPlus grants have provided key...
