MESSAGE FROM JOE RAMOS
 
It would be great for members of our Club to come out and see our 2018 RotaryFloat at the new facility it was built and where it will be decorated.  This is 14 miles closer to us than the old Pasadena Facility.  It will be a fun event with heavy hors d'ouvers, wine, beer music etc. for only $45 each.
 
We will have about 5 proclamations from a State Senator, Assemblyman, and other Civic Leaders along with meeting some of the walker/riders, KCAL-9 and possibly KTLA-5 coverage.
 
As the first Chair of the event from our District (let alone our club) in the history of this Float, I would love to introduce my home club. This is where 75% of the Rose Parade Floats will be built and decorated.  Take a sneak peak at those that have been built.
 
Past members Jeff and Sue Shutt (will be rejoining) and Jack Winsten have made their reservations.  Carpooling is desired.

Donald Willerth 
 
Our Rotary club has lost one of its finest members, Donald Willerth. Donald and Andrea joined the Rotary Club of Lake Arrowhead in 2003 and 2008 respectively. Together they were both kind and generous, supporting our club and Rotary International with their good will and open hearts. Donald passed away in August and the Celebration of his life was this past Sunday.  Donald and Andrea were unable to attend club meetings for the last few years due to health issues but they supported us in every way. If you wish to honor the memory of Donald Willerth there is a fund being created to support the Mountains Community Hospital Foundation which they also supported generously. 
Respectfully and with Sadness,

Cheryl Moxley

RYLA YOUTH LEADERSHIP PARTICIPANTS SPEAK ABOUT THEIR THREE DAY CONFERENCE
 
Emily Tvelia (right), Robby Moxley (center), and Jon Haverlin (left) shared their very positive experience with RYLA and thanked our Rotary Club for supporting them.   Aylene Popka gave me some additional background information about RYLA which I am sharing below.  Thank you Aylene.
 
RYLA  stands for Rotary Youth Leadership Awards.  Every Rotary District in the world is encouraged to create their own RYLA conference.  Our District RYLA serves more participants than any other in the world - about 625 high school juniors each year from throughout our District 5330.  We have two conferences each Spring at the Thousand Pines Conference Center.
 
Conference speakers talk about leadership skills and the teens do a large service project (for example, packaging thousands of meals for people in need).  The participants are assigned to small discussion groups.  In these groups, they  meet about 12 times throughout the conference to process what they are doing/hearing and sharing how it relates to their personal lives (these discussions can get pretty "heavy" emotionally).
 
All in all a tremendous opportunity for these participants and hearing them speak of how the experience influenced their lives makes us all proud Rotarians to be able to support them.

At our March 7th meeting, Bill Johnson updated us on the status of Sky Park Santa's Village.  He now needs our help.  Shortly, the final Environmental Impact Report comes up for approval before the County Board of Supervisors.  Approval of this Report is crucial for the full opening of Sky Park.  He is requesting those supporting Sky Park to let our Supervisors and Legislative Representatives know that we want this Report approved now so Sky Park can open the rest of its venues.  Hundreds of jobs in our community are at stake as well as the sorely needed boost to our mountain economy.  At the meeting many of us signed letters supporting the approval of the Environmental Impact Report.

WATER FOR HAITI - ROTARIANS DOING WHAT ROTARIANS DO!

At its meeting on Tuesday, October 11, the Rotary Club of Lake Arrowhead voted to provide 10 Lifesaver Jerry Can water filters to Haiti.  Pledges from members and Club funds made this possible.  Each water can filter produces about 5,000 gallons of sterile water.  Thanks to the efforts of Norton Marks who weekly collects money for these water filters and Jack Winsten who is coordinating delivery of these cans to a Haitian Rotary Club for distribution, these cans are on their way to help Haitian citizens deal with the aftermath of the devastation from hurricane Matthew.  This is what Rotary is all about.
