What is a Passport Club?

We all know that Rotary’s motto is ‘Service Above Self’.  If you have an inkling to help others, Rotary is a great place to do it.  However, Rotary is SO MUCH MORE than that. 
WIIFM? 
What is in it for you?.... VALUE!  Rotary offers lots of amazing opportunities to meet influential business leaders in your community and professionally network with them. Rotary club members represent a cross-section of the community’s owners, executives, managers, political leaders, and professionals – people who make decisions and influence policy. 
 
Expand your international awareness, make quality like-minded new friends that are also movers and shakers in the community in so many fields such as health care, hunger, poverty, illiteracy, and the environment, mentor young people, be totally entertained all of the time learning from powerful subject matter experts, join in on a myriad of very fun social activities, and be accountable and held true to high ethical standards in your profession and in your daily life.
 
Rotarians abide by The Four-Way Test:
 
Of the things we think, say or do:
1) Is it the TRUTH?
2) Is it FAIR to all concerned?
3) Will it BUILD GOODWILL and BETTER FRIENDSHIPS?
4) Will it be BENEFICIAL to all concerned?
 
Looking for new friends?  Rotary is the place to find them.  Looking to help out in your community?  Rotary is the place to do it. 
The value of Rotary is immeasurable for others whose lives you will touch and for yourself as well!
Join us for an informal "Club Mingler" on Thursday, July 22nd - 6pm at the San Luis Blues Baseball Game. We are buying group tickets and will have a "ball" together! All are welcome! These games are very family oriented with great food and feature lots of interactive entertainment and participation! RSVP to Laura Ochoa @ lw3251@yahoo.com
It is wonderful to see that Rotary has established the Environmental Sustainability Rotary Action Group (ESRAG). Karen Hand, the Communications Director of ESRAG states it perfectly:
“Any project in any area of focus will benefit from having environmental sustainability as one of its watchwords. It’s a lot harder to supply clean water to people if your watershed is compromised— if your river is full of industrial, human, and animal waste. Basic education and literacy is a challenge when kids are sick because the school well is contaminated. Health is affected when insects carrying diseases expand their geographic range due to changing climate patterns. Water wars and climate refugees will make achieving peace and conflict resolution more complicated. Economic development is slowed when there’s not adequate energy. Rotary would do a huge service to the world if it moved every water project from a diesel pump to wind or solar. That’s a project that’s scalable.”
 
“Climate change could destroy the livelihoods of millions of people and create much greater migratory pressures than we see today,” says Francesco Menonna, Rotary scholar.
 
Locally, in San Luis Obispo County, many of our Rotary Clubs have already adopted various projects to help our environment: The Rotary Passport Club of the Central Coast is focusing on the Monarch butterfly’s habitat preservation and creation as well as various beach and creek clean up parties; Rotarians built the community garden at Meadow Park as a joint project with the Rotary Club of San Luis Obispo de Tolosa, the Rotary Club of San Luis Obispo Daybreak, and Rotaract SLO; and The Grover Beach Rotary Club set up recycling stations at local events, etc.

Our Rotary Passport Club’s monthly Mingler at Avila Dog Beach was wonderful- abounding with beautiful weather, delicious fare, and fabulous people!  We welcomed our member’s friends, family members, kids, and dogs.  The club supplied beverages of all kinds and attendees brought yummy treats to share including fantabulous designer cupcakes to celebrate our beloved member Deepa’s birthday.   
We definitely have fun so please include yourself at our next get-together!  Come ashore and party some more!
