WBB Delayed
Bonsall Rotary out of an abundance of caution, has decided to postpone our Wine, Brews and Blues Festival, for a few months.  This decision is due to the COVID-19 pandemic and the economic impacts caused by governmental response.
 
CLUB MEETINGS ARE ALSO ON A LESS OFTEN BASIS.  SEE SPEAKER LIST TO THE RIGHT FOR SPECIFICS.  --> 
DATES WITHOUT A SPEAKER WILL BE DARK.  FOR NON-MEMBERS, PLEASE CONTACT THE PRESIDENT (see below) IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO PARTICIPATE.
 
Watch for future announcements here.  
Message from Our President
2020-21 Rotary International President Holger Knaack guides us that,
“Rotary isn’t just a club for people to join, but rather
an invitation to endless opportunities.  Rotary creates pathways
for members to improve their lives and the lives of those they help through service projects.
 
“We believe that our acts of service, big and small, create
opportunities for people who need our help. Rotary creates
leadership opportunities and gives members the chance to
travel the world to put their service ideas into action and
make lifelong connections.  
Everything we do opens another opportunity for someone, somewhere.”
~ Rotary Opens Opportunities ~
We are always looking for fine new members to inspire others and join our fun club.
If you are an enthusiastic, giving person, please contact us
about visiting a regular meeting, which is normally
Thursday morning at 7:30am - 9am at Pala Mesa Resort in Fallbrook.
Welcome to the Rotary Club of Bonsall
I am enthusiastic to take the reins of Rotary Club of Bonsall a little early for the 2020-2021 year.  We are a small influential club with some of the best talent in North County from all walks of life in our beautiful Bonsall!
 
Things are a bit challenging with the pandemic and in particular with the governmental reaction to it.  But behind the restrictions are many opportunities for Rotarians to help out in the community.  Our regular annual Wine, Brews and Blues Festival had to be cancelled for 2019-2020 year.  But we are hopeful that it will go off soon.
 
Our focus this year:
  • Supporting our great local schools and our students at Bonsall High School!
  • Offering academic scholarships and vocational scholarships to graduating seniors
  • Supporting the local 4H and FFA Clubs
  • Working with County Parks Dept in development of the San Luis Rey River Park
  • Continue offering programs for our members that are important and timely.  Our programs bring leaders such as Jim Desmond County Supervisor and Summer Stephan San Diego County District Attorney.
If you want to support our local community and learn leadership, mentoring and service we are the club for you.

The Rotary Club of Bonsall was a major participant with the Fallbrook Beautiful Alliance and I Love a Clean San Diego, in cleaning up trash on and around the Old Bonsall bridge (AKA San Luis Rey bridge).  The take included 19 tires, one sofa, one chair, one recliner base and one mattress.  Also along for the fun were several family members, and Interactors from Bonsall High School.
Bonsall Rotary recently awarded scholarships of $2000 to Joshua Santiago and $3000 to Remi Arnold, seniors at Bonsall High School.
Congratulations Class of 2019!
