What is a Passport Club?

SLO4Home is a broad coalition of religious organizations, veteran and active duty military members, and community activists who are helping Afghan refugees establish new lives and livelihoods on the Central Coast.
Their grassroots group, which already has nearly 100 volunteers representing a broad cross section of the community, began coordinating assistance efforts late last year. Areas of focus include housing, job assistance, education, health, transportation, culture and hospitality.
It is expected more than 65,000 Afghans will be welcomed through the Afghan Placement and Assistance (APA) program, set up through the U.S. government. Many of the Afghans who will be resettled worked directly with the United States on its mission in Afghanistan, including across military, diplomatic, and development efforts, or are a family member of someone who did. Thousands more worked as journalists, human rights activists, or humanitarian workers and had careers that put them at risk, which makes them eligible for visas.
The attached pictures show the apartment set up that will welcome the new family to the Central Coast. They were living in Kharkiev until the bombing started and then moved to Bulgaria. The family will be settling in Paso Robles.
One of the Best Parts of Being in Rotary is Getting To Know Your Fellow Club Members Better in a Smaller Setting.  We have Created "4 Seasons" Groups Within Our club That Meet Quarterly to Share a Dinner Either at One of The Member's Homes, or Out at a Local Restaurant..  Everyone Loves These Special Get-Togethers!  You Can Be a Part of This Also and Make Some New and Wonderful Like-Minded Friends.  Email Susan Dressler, Membership Chair of the Rotary Passport Club of the Central Coast @ susan.dressler10@gmail.com
 
 
Alice Hamrick and Cathy Francis partnered with members of our sister Rotary De La Tolosa club to plant over 30 trees at Cerro San Luis, Lemon Grove loop.  It is SLO De La Tolosa’s tree project to plant 1000 trees in the next 10 years in support of SLO’s desire to plant 10,000 trees by 2035.
The Climate Action Committee organized the planting of the live oak tree seedlings.
These little one-gallon wonders had recently grown from local acorns, by a local oak tree expert. They were planted using Miracle Grow Tubes and compost from a John-Su Bio-reactor that concentrates naturally occurring micro-rhizome fungi which accelerates growth and increases the amount of carbon that the soil will hold. 
Great effort, ladies!  You, too, can join in on this worthwhile and  great effort!  Contact the Rotary Passport Club of the Central Coast!  We would love to welcome you!  😊
 
What is better than a wonderful holiday party with like-minded people who have hearts of gold?......... NOTHING!
Members of our Rotary Club and our friends and family got together at Natasha's and Beau's home for this fantastic celebration! Great food, frolicky gift exchange, and amazing camaraderie were had by all!
