The 2019-20 Rotary Year may bring mixed emotions, what with the outbreak of a global pandemic and related heartaches and disruptions. Yet, it is helpful to look back and appreciate the positives. Last September, our Rotary Club of Chula Vista Eastlake received word that we received a Rotary Gold Citation.
The Rotary Citation is a significant award that honors clubs whose leaders and members show commitment to success. Clubs that achieve the goals required to earn the Rotary Citation are strengthening Rotary and shaping our future.
Who doesn’t love a barbecue? Join us as the Rotary Club of Chula Vista Eastlake hosts a Red, White and Blue BBQ on Saturday, July 3. The inaugural event helps connect our community—and foster youth and their families. As you may know, foster families provide safe, stable and healing home environments for abused and neglected children. Chula Vista Elementary School District Social Workers have been able to outreach to more than 30 participants for the first in-person event for foster families in well over a year.
A bumpy, dusty rock-laden dirt road winds its way to a ranch-style building that is in a perpetual state of need. It serves as home to about 35 mostly senior men who are in desperate need of some attention themselves. Members of the Rotary Club of Chula Vista Eastlake (Ca.) arose early on Saturday morning last December. They donned their face coverings, and made the trek by car to Casa Para Pobres Desamparados. This ramshackle home for abandoned seniors in La Rumorosa, Mex., is located about 40 minutes east of Tecate, Mex.--about two hours from San Diego County. On this day, the Rotarians took donations of food, blankets, adult diapers and clothing to the center.
Rotarians from Chula Vista Eastlake installed an electric water heater at home for abandoned seniors.When the Chula Vista Eastlake Rotarians arrived, Hernandez was struck by the conditions. There were seniors who needed urgent medical care, attended to by an overwhelmed “staff” of four volunteers. The center had no hot water, and badly needed facility maintenance. Hernandez wasn’t sure where to start. He asked “Hermano Pablo,” the caring soul who runs the center with the help of his wife and some relatives, what they really needed. It was clear to Hernandez that the donated clothing and food were temporary fixes. The seniors home needed more than a figurative 'band-aid.'
Our club's efforts led to overflow of a collection bin with food and toys to support the partnership of the Chula Vista Elementary School District, the Chula Vista Welfare Council, and Chula Vista Police Activities League (CVPAL) to collect donations of food and toys. CVESD employee Mayela Couturier helped decorate the beautiful bin our club used to collect items. The response from the community and our members was tremendous. First Bank allowed our club to place the bin in its lobby to collect donations from customers and club members. First Bank also donated $400 towards the purchase of food and/or toys to support this cause. A special thanks goes out to First Bank Vice President and Senior Branch Manager Lourdes Valdez. We are so happy to have Lourdes, a charter member, back with our club. She has been so enthusiastic—we all feed off her energy and tireless efforts on behalf of Rotary.
