How to Join our club
If you are interested in becoming a member of our Rotary Club of La Mesa Sunrise, please come to a breakfast meeting. You will be greeted, given a name tag, and asked to sign our guest book.  If you are interested in learning more about our club, Rotary International, and the people in our club, please speak with either Elly Dotseth, Marlowe McAnear, or Christine Evans to let them know you'd like to begin a three month "trial membership." After 3 mos., submit an application for membership. You will meet with the Membership Committee, to learn the  requirements of membership.  The Board of Directors will review your application. If approved, you will be inducted and welcomed as a member. 
 
Home Page Stories
 Here is a link to watch a very compelling video produced by the BBC  called The War On Plastics. By clicking on the blue text, you will  be re-directed to the program. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T61kiru37dE  
Clearly, our entire planet needs to find a better way to package and store foods, products and water! Our club's focus this year is to reduce the use of single use plastics in our daily lives. 
 Below is a link that will take you directly to the District 5340 Website page to begin the process of becoming Youth Certified through Rotary. You need to do this if you plan to do any volunteering with children and youth even up to college age. The certificate is good for only 2 years, so although in the past you may have gone through this process, it may be time to do it again!
 
 
 
There is a large population of "Working Poor" people in our community. Many work multiple part-time jobs, and still cannot afford to rent an apartment! Often entire families live out of the only shelter they own which is their car. Unfortunately, most neighborhoods do not find it acceptable to have random cars parked on their streets at night. With no restrooms, and no safe place for children, it can be a real problem. Cities are having a hard time accommodating the needs of so many, so while government tries to find a solution,  Jewish Family Services has made available guarded parking lots, where the working poor with vehicles can safely park to sleep overnight. They rely upon volunteers to assist with bringing meals to people who are struggling to make ends meet every day! Our club has begun serving dinners and the response has been so rewarding!
 
From the staff of JFS : "We’ve found that some of our best outreach to new dinner groups comes from our current volunteers, so we also encourage you to share your experience and the below information on how to volunteer with your family, friends, or other community groups who might be interested in hosting a dinner. We can accomplish so much more together !  "  www.jfssd.org/safeparkingprogramapp
                                                                               
  Rotary International has several areas of focus, and one of them is safe drinking water. The Navajo Reservation's (United States Citizens ) in   Arizona, Utah and New Mexico have a very difficult time getting safe, fresh water. Most of the underground water is polluted by uranium and effluent from other mining operations, leaving the wells poisoned! We are thrilled to report that a new Global Grant has been written and has now been officially listed!
 Project title: DigDeep Navajo Water Project
Country: USA
Location: Arizona
TRF grant number: #2092485
