Raise Your Glass!

It's a Fun-raiser. Come sail San Diego Bay aboard the schooner Bill of Rights for "Mar y Vino." This special event takes place on Saturday, August 21 and is hosted by the Rotary Club of Chula Vista Eastlake.
“Mar Y Vino” – sea and wine – promises to be a memorable experience, what with the sun shining off San Diego Bay and among friends. We depart from the Chula Vista Marina. We'll make our way to the historic Coronado Bridge--and sail beneath! Breathtaking view after breathtaking view. And for a good cause.
This is a true win-win as we provide the Bill of Rights with an amazing charter opportunity that can assist with preservation and restoration projects. 
In addition, net proceeds from this sunset cruise will help fund Rotary's local projects and charities in our community and internationally. From helping fund the Food4Kids Backpack program in local schools, to supporting the arts and the elderly, the Rotary Club of Chula Vista Eastlake makes real our motto of Service Above Self. Your support of our events helps us make an even greater impact. We invite you to "come aboard" this fun, festive event.

The club's installation of officers for the 2021-22 Rotary Year took place at the new Pizzo's location in the Millenia development. President Anthony Millican, President-Elect Mark Gillette, Secretary Sabrina Monaco, and Publicity Chair Tara Simpson were sworn in as part of the new board. The club also celebrated the "outstallation"of club presidents Mauricio Torres, Sam Hernandez Meza and Anthony Millican. Each had assumed a leadership role during the previous year, impacted by the pandemic and related restrictions. The club continued meeting throughout the pandemic both in virtual and, later, hybrid formats. Members went on hikes, conducted service projects, and held fundraisers to the best of our ability given the circumstances. More than one member commented that we became closer as a club, and stronger. COVID-19 changed and impacted all of us in large ways and small.
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.'
