Development Director Yvonne Curley (right) and co-worker Candace Elumba updated us on the broad reach of Tel Hi Neighborhood Center, which the club has long supported with funds and volunteers. They were invited to speak by member Herman Jones (center).

The Preschool, Infant and Toddler program runs year-round, with a current enrollment of 93 children, more than half from low income families. Average daily attendance in this year’s Summer Learning Program, June-August, was 66, and there currently are 153 enrolled in Tel Hi’s Futurama After-School Program at Galileo High School.

The Senior Program serves lunch in partnership with Project Open Hand. About 80 seniors attend daily for various activities, including Tai Chi, bingo, line dancing, yoga, computer lab, cooking and gardening.

Tel Hi  also operates an after-school program at North Beach Chinatown Beacon Center and North Beach Place. 

Yvonne invited members to again join the crew of volunteers who serve more than 500 free meals during Tel Hi’s community Thanksgiving dinner on Thursday, Nov. 16.

Sue Rokaw, Past President and District Public Image Chair, was recognized for her continuing generous support of the Rotary Foundation when October President of the Month Riki Intner presented her with a Paul Harris Fellow sapphire pin.
