This is the time of year when we give thanks to all the people in our lives that made a difference. Personally, it has been an honor and a joy to be the President of the SD Downtown Evening Rotary Club. Thank you for instilling confidence in me to lead our group in a team effort way.

 I am certain that God gave me the opportunity to meet Luz María Wilson who is a natural philanthropist. Working with Georgette Okada and Jorge Sepiten has also been a blessing. I am very appreciative of Dulce Cazares and Gustavo Fimbres and every single member and the amazing board. Maria Jose has been a great Treasurer and Josmarie has been an amazing Secretary. Sonia is also a charming member. I am grateful to Natalia our Co-President Elect with Dulce who always care for the group. Ana Patricia gives great advice, Nancy contributes a lot – and we value her charming personality.
To all our new members  -- thank you for believing in us. Luis Carranza thank you for being a great A.G. And all my admiration for Dan Gensler for being a great Governor. This year we led some groundbreaking projects and we helped children with Cancer, Autism, provide a Hearing Aid to Ivan and deliveredToys for tots for Barrio Logan Children.
 
Thank you members for giving the gift of a smile to all the children in our community. Wishing you all the best.

History

“WHATEVER ROTARY MAY MEAN TO US, TO THE WORLD IT WILL BE KNOWN BY THE RESULTS IT ACHIEVES.”

—PAUL P. HARRIS

Our 1.2 million-member organization started with the vision of one man—Paul P. Harris. The Chicago attorney formed one of the world’s first service organizations, the Rotary Club of Chicago, on 23 February 1905 as a place where professionals with diverse backgrounds could exchange ideas and form meaningful, lifelong friendships. Rotary’s name came from the group’s early practice of rotating meetings among the offices of each member.
