Dear Fellow Rotarians:

Happy Spring!!

As our Rotary International President, Gary Huang states “In Rotary, service and friendship go hand in hand.”  I couldn’t agree with him more.  This month we have the opportunity to experience this.  Saturday, April 25th is our annual Rotarians at Work Day.  We will be working with our Valley Center High School Interact Club on our E-Waste collection efforts in serving our community as well as rolling up our sleeves together to paint the cubbies at the Bronner Branch of the Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater San Diego.  During the day we will have numerous opportunities to deepen our friendships with each other while providing needed services to our neighbors and their families!  How fun!

Our Rotarians at Work Day is also a wonderful time to share your passion for Rotary with your family and friends by inviting them to come to help!  Nothing gets people more interested in a great organization like ours then letting them work beside us serving others.  Please keep this in mind for anyone you know who you believe would make a good Rotarian.  We need to keep our club growing and active.  

Monday April 13th   the Club will be DARK due to spring break in the school district.  I wish you all a wonderful Easter with your families.

Light Up Rotary,



District Governor Nominee, Marilyn Sanderson, will present Project Peanut Butter to our club on April 20th!  This will be an inspiring presentation and one you will not forget!  We hope all Rotarians and their significant others will attend! Marilyn thinks very highly of the Valley Center club and visited us right after her nomination as District Governor 2016-17!

The Club was treated to a wonderful presentation of High School Musical Jr. that will be held at the Valley Center Middle School. Contact the Middle School for further information about dates and tickets.
Students from Pauma Valley Elementary, Valley Center Middle and Valley Center High were honored at the Rotary Club of Valley Center meeting today. Seventh and eighth graders from Pauma Elementary and Valley Center Middle listened as Superintendent Mary Gorsuch read letters from the students' teachers about their many achievements and goals for the future!  Valley Center High students delivered their own presentations about their lives, goals and accomplishments.  State Senator Joel Anderson and State Assembly Member Marie Waldron sent representatives to present signed certificates from their respective offices. 
President Denette Stewart held a Club Assembly in place of our regular meeting on March 30th! She discussed plans for the remainder of the year and opportunities to serve our community! All present were very inspired and supportive!

Community members attended the Rotary Club of Valley Center club meeting for a Lunch and Learn program on February 23rd.  The Club presented the film Invisible Threat to the community and provided a lunch as part of the event.  A large crowd took part in this great community event that led to thought proving discussions.

A little about the film, Invisible Threat -- it focuses on understanding the science of vaccination and the misperceptions leading parents to delay or decline life-saving immunizations.  This 40 minute independent documentary, produced by award-winning Carlsbad High School student film-makers, has earned praise from more than 50 organizations, including the CDC, Texas Children's Hospital, Children's Hospital of Philadelphia, Mayo Clinic, Johns Hopkins, and Every Child By Two, calling the documentary "powerful" , "fast-paced" , "well-balanced" and "impeccably produced".

The film was primarily sponsored by several generous Rotarians from Rotary District 5340, as well as the Rotary Clubs of Carlsbad Hi-Noon, La Mesa, Old Mission, Ramona and San Diego.

The Rotary Club of Valley Center was proud to take part in this timely event!
