Murrieta Rotary in action
In a new program for District 5330, nominations were requested by the Governor for local "heroes" in area Rotary clubs. Our Club's president, Al Vollbrecht nominated Jim, who then went on to be one of the 10 finalists in the District. 
Jim Yanoschik is the "energizer bunny" of Murrieta Rotary, a constant giver of time, talent and resources who just keeps giving and giving.

Our sole remaining charter member -- we're 24 years old -- he has had perfect attendance for 22 years. Kids have been his focus.

He's a triathlete who has competed in numerous fundraising events to raise more than $100,000 for the Rotoplast and CHIPs (Children's Health International Projects) programs.  Hundreds of kids with cleft lips and palettes in impoverished parts of the world have benefitted by reparative surgery from money he's raised.

He created and then coordinated for 20 years Rotary's dental screenings program, which brings area dentists together to annually check all kindergartners and first, third and fifth graders in the Murrieta public schools system, looking for dental problems, especially those that may be inhibiting their learning.

For the last four years, he's coordinated the club's Special Needs Valentines Dinner/Dance.  This event brings some 225 special needs adults and caregivers out for an evening of dinner and dancing, complete with boutonnieres, party portraits and sometimes a proposal or two.  It's like a prom for these special people.

He's been a key player in Rotary's participation in the Salvation Army's Child Spree program that takes more than  220low income kids shopping for school clothes before fall term begins, giving them a huge self-esteem boost.  He leads the club in the Battle of the Bells, when area service groups rings bells during the Army's annual holiday appeal for the needy.  Murrieta Rotary "wins" every year -- we raise more money more creatively for the true winners, those in need.

He contributes resources in another way, too.  A Paul Harris Society member, he's a Paul Harris Fellow with eight stones.
