Our District has 'passed the hat' many times in support of providing relief during disasters around our globe.  This time, the need is in our own back yard.  We all know about the Erskine Fire in the Lake Isabella area which has resulted in the loss of life and property.  Our own Immediate Past President Bill Brown lost his home in the fire.  

At the July Board Meeting, it was decided that we want to set a goal of raising at least $1000 to be sent to the Erskine Fire Fund from the Rotary Club of China Lake.  The board has earmarked $250 to start the pot.  We will pass the hat at the next couple of meetings.  Members are encouraged to be generous.  You can also bring a check to include in the funds.  We will be depositing all money in the Rotary Club of China Lake Charitable Foundation.  Members can donate directly to the RCCLCF to get a tax donation receipt if requested.
