Welcome…from the President
As we gear up for another wonderful year in Rotary, our team is pumped up to continue the exciting projects we have done or been involved in through the years – our always-heartwarming Thanksgiving Dinner for Seniors, the entertaining outdoor event that is the Canine Classic, the delicious Pumpkin Festival and the much-needed Blood Drive, to name just a few. And, in partnership with the Calabasas City Council, through our Neighbors in Need program, we help those in immediate need to ease the burdens of daily living. Internationally, among others, we have provided clean water to thousands of school children and their families in the Philippines, supported an orphanage in Mexico, contributed to a food supplement program in Africa and participated in a matching grant for patient monitors for the pediatric cardiac program in El Salvador.
We believe in having FUN while doing good works to benefit the underserved in our community. To that end, our annual Rotary at the Hollywood Bowl - with fireworks -  is a much anticipated event where we share fellowship and camaraderie with family, friends and other Rotarians. In the works is a Bingo Social which should be coming up in January 2016!
With funding from the Southern California Blues Society, we are pleased to announce our newest project – the Blues in the Schools Program. This program will teach students  how to play and appreciate the Blues – the music genre that is indigenous to the United States.
So come…share in the fun and “Be a Gift to the World”. Join our Calabasas Rotary family!
