On June 15 the Club extended a warm welcome to new President David Harris, and gave a big thank you to outgoing president Ron Rice for a year of leadership and laughter!
For more than 10 years our Club has provided support to the students at Diego Hills Central and its Learn for Life (L4L) sister schools. In recognition of this continued partnership, L4L Community Liaison Carlos Solorio presented a glass plaque to incoming Club president David Harris at the June 7 meeting. Club members Lisa Youngflesh, L4L principal, and Ivy Blumberg, retired L4L teacher, joined Carlos in expressing gratitude to the Club for providing Diego Hills Central students with college scholarships, a food pantry, and wrapped holiday gifts for their babies and young children.  
 
 
 
LMSR Club members showed their support of the NAMIwalk 2024 at Liberty Station and aboard the Royal Caribbean Navigator of the Seas during the District 5340 conference on April 28. The 60+ Rotary members participating and volunteering at the event raised $17,000 while at the same time joining Kim Pretto and some of her family members in celebrating the memory of Chuck Pretto, a strong supporter of mental health programs. 
 
 
Rotary members joined more than 30,000 walkers in raising  a record $255K for NAMI programs in San Diego and Imperial County, demonstrating the awesome power of partnerships!

Our bowling fundraiser at Parkway Bowl on May 10 was lots of noisy, flashing, bidding fun, and raised nearly $3,000!  Thank you to everyone who found items to donate for the raffle, helped with the planning, set up, and clean up, including Marco who brought the giant inflatable Rotary sign. Hooray!!
 
 
 
 
 
                                                                
 
 
A small but mighty team of Club members picked grapefruit and lemons from trees at a home in San Carlos on February 17, and oranges and tangerines at the home of Peggy Davis on February 24. The dozens of bags of fresh fruit were donated to the East County Transitional Living Center, a nonprofit that provides meals, training, and therapy to our neighbors in need. 
 
 
La Mesa Sunrise Rotary Club members spent a Saturday morning in January filling bags of potatoes and oranges at the San Diego Food Bank. The 7,000 pounds of produce was destined to be distributed the very next day to families impacted by the recent flooding. Club members were very glad to do their part to help neighbors in need! 
 
 
Making the season brighter for some little ones was the goal of the La Mesa Sunrise Rotary Club on December 8, 2023.
 
The Club purchased dozens of toys, clothing items, and other gifts for the young children of students in the Learn4Life Network of charter schools.
LMSR Club members hopped on board to tap into a barrel full of fun and fundraising at Citizen Brewing!
 
The two-stage project began with a brewing lesson and session in November 2023 capped off in December with filling and labeling dozens of bottles of La Mesa Sunrise IPA and La Mesa Sunrise Hefwise.
 
 
 
On September 23, 2023, several of our members gathered at a site between the AAA building and the medical offices building along Alvarado Creek off of Fletcher Parkway in La Mesa. This was to assist with the annual I Love A Clean San Diego Creek To Bay Clean-up day. It is amazing how much trash piles up in just a year! It is also amazing what we find each time we participate! Also helping but not pictured were Laurel and Grant.
 
 
On Saturday morning at 8am, our newest member Deirdre Kleske organized several Rotarians (Ivan, Marco, Ivy, Ana, Deirdre, David, and visiting Richard Makao) to move a large mound of compost to the vegetable beds at Tubman Village Charter School. Many of our friends and families volunteered to help that morning as well. The Tubman students will soon have lots of wonderful vegetables to eat and learn about when school starts.
