Welcome…from the President
 
Welcome to the Rotary Club of Calabasas! I follow a long line of excellent Club Presidents and am looking forward to continuing their great work in our Club. 
 
This year, we are focusing on our community with legacy projects like our annual Thanksgiving meal for seniors and the annual Holiday Party for the Valley Women’s Center, as well as new projects like helping one of the local fire stations build out an expansion to their facility. We are also looking abroad, supporting the District’s Humanitarian trip to Peru and Operation Smile in the Philippines. 
 
Our Club also makes time for some fun and fellowship. When we can, we attend (with enthusiasm!) our District and fellow Rotary Clubs’ events. This is always a great opportunity to network with other Rotarians, support their causes and find common ground to do a project together. We also have some laid back events like a wine-fueled paint night, bowling, or the occasional casual happy hour at one of our great local restaurants. We love getting together. Some of our best brainstorming sessions for service are at these events.
 
So, whether it is a service project to give back to your community or the world or a fellowship event to get to know us a little better, stop by our Club. We hope to see you soon.
 
Cheers, Lauren DeBoalt
President 2018-2019
