If you or someone you know has extra citrus fruits growing in their garden or orchard, please let us know by sending an email to the President of the club. We have a team ready to come harvest what you and your family don't need!
              
The December holidays and the gifts children hope to receive were a very tall order indeed for the students who attend the Learn4Life Charter Schools. These students working jobs, attending classes and often living in poverty had precious few resources to buy their own young children gifts. Four of our club's members work and teach at these schools, so they understand the needs of their students. A proposal was brought to our Projects Committee by member Ivy Blumberg, asking for our Club Foundation to contribute $1,000 toward the purchase of toys, clothing, blankets etc. for the youngsters. This money was augmented by individuals wanting to help. Together we wrapped hundreds of packages, and the school staff organized a drive-through gift distribution. What a great way to help make this COVID19 year a bit brighter for these young families!
 
  
 
Our club sponsored a walk at Lake Murray on Saturday October 24 to raise awareness and money to support the eradication of wild Polio virus in the two remaining countries that still have cases in their population: Afghanistan and Pakistan.
Several people along the way asked questions about Polio, so we were able to do some education. It was great to get together and see some of our members who cannot join our Zoom meetings!
Nearly $800 raised for Polio Plus at the home of Elly Dotseth, who donated 100% of the proceeds from selling her hand made pottery! Thank you Rotarians from Santee-Lakeside, La Mesa Sunrise, neighbors and friends for helping to make this donation possible!
 
 
 
   
Learn 4 Life is a Charter High School that works with students who have needs that cannot be met by traditional public schools. These graduating students have had to work exceptionally hard to earn their High School Diplomas! Our club President Elly Dotseth, together with Principal Lisa Youngflesh (also a La Mesa Sunrise Rotary Club member) presented scholarships to several deserving students who worked above and beyond expectations. The total monetary amount donated by our club to the Diego Hills and Learn 4 Life was $3,200,                                                                              $200 of which was grocery gift cards for the neediest students.
 
 
      
 
 
   
      
 
 
Several La Mesa Sunrise members met (with face masks and clean hands,) to form an assembly line to fill two bags for every student attending Diego Hills Charter School, with groceries. Our club's Foundation was able to purchase the groceries at 1/2 price through a generous donation from Grocery Outlet. Many thanks to store owner/operator of the
East Village Grocery Outlet!

How to Join our club
We are now meeting on-line using Zoom technology. This has made us realize we need to find new ways to attract members and keep ourselves connected.  In the past, new members would attend our breakfast meetings, but we cannot do that at this time. So we are asking you to please contact our President by email, and she will direct your inquiries to someone on our  Membership Committee who can guide you in the process. Please click the blue text to read more about Rotary International and find out what our mission is. In partnership with Rotarians from all over our planet, you will find an active group of committed friends, joining together to help solve some of humanity's most pressing problems.
