Craig Reynolds shared with Luna Vista is passion for Project Amigo, supporting educational needs of disadvantage children in Colima, Mexico and his need to help fund it by growing Agave for tequila.
Project Amigo transforms lives through education.  .  It was formed in 1984 and became a US non profit in 1996.  The goal is to support children of Colima, Mexico to reach their highest potential by providing educational opportunities, material support, enrichment activities and medical services. 
Project Amigo owes both its beginnings and its longevity to the “service above self” contributions of thousands of Rotarians and Rotary clubs.  It was an official international service “project” of the Rotary Club of Novato, CA between 1996 and 2002. Today it is an independent public charity and asociacion civil recognized in United States, Canada, and Mexico.
 
Project Amigo’s mission is to support youth in Colima, Mexico to create their own educational opportunities and better their quality of life. It offers opportunities for international, life-changing service to those of greater means which is a perfect match for serving significantly, generously and effectively beyond oneself.
 Individuals, Rotarians and Rotary clubs can:
  • Sponsor primary children in the Incentive Program; encourage Club participation in the Sponsorship program
  • Sponsor secondary youth or college young adults through the Scholarship Program; encourage Club participation in the Scholarship program
  • Serve with us in Mexico on a Humanitarian Service Work Week
  • Bring your entire Club down for a Humanitarian Service Work Week!
  • Invite Project Amigo representatives to make a presentation to your Rotary club
  • Develop club or district grants to fund the purchase of books for our ongoing Literacy program
  • Contribute to various “special need” campaigns that arise each year
 
Craig Reynolds shared his experience of growing blue agave in the Colima Highlands of Mexico to produce Dos Volcanes spirits (tequila).  He started this in 2006 to help finance Project Amigo, provide scholarships to students and support families with their children’s education.

Our own Lynette Ertel, Associate at RE/MAX Gold in Davis, CA shared with the club the status of Real Estate in Yolo County.  She discussed trends in sales, pricing and financing.  Sales are generally down and prices up.  High prices have still not reached the record highs for the area years ago.  Financing is plentiful and creative, with many more lenders in the market.  Median home ownership has gone from 3.5 years in 2008 to 8.5 years in 2016.

Five years since its debut, Rotary Club Central is getting a big upgrade
When we introduced Rotary Club Central in 2012, it revolutionized goal tracking and planning for clubs and districts — no more filling out paper club-planning forms or passing along boxes of historical club information every time a new leader took office. Rotary Club Central offered clubs and districts a quantifiable way to begin measuring local and global impact, specifically membership initiatives, service activities, and Rotary Foundation giving. But as with any technological advancement, in a few short years, Rotary Club Central began to show its age, and Rotarians took notice. They...
Rotary International Board adopts new zone structure
At its January 2017 meeting, the Rotary International Board of Directors adopted a new zone structure for Rotary clubs. Rotary bylaws require the Board to complete a comprehensive review of the 34 Rotary zones no less often than every eight years to ensure that each zone has an approximately equal number of Rotarians. The Board’s previous review of the zones occurred in 2008. The Board earlier approved the creation of three regional workgroups to develop rezoning proposals for Asia, Europe/Africa, and the Americas. These workgroups comprised one representative (either a current director,...
