Wednesdays at Noon at Claim Jumper in Temecula

Program for October 22nd

Our speaker Wednesday is Lake Elsinore Rotarian Tom Thomas.

Tom has been a Rotarian for almost 20 years.  He has been a Club President, Assistant Governor and is the District Audio/Video Chair along with other new responsibilities.  Tom and club member Kent Demuth have worked together on various grants and were partners in constructing the orphanage in Tijuana about 5 years ago.

Tom and his wife Dee ( also a Rotarian ) are residents of Mexico and the U.S. and have many strong ties to Mexico based Rotarians and Clubs.  This year Governor Shab named Tom the “District Mexico Projects Chair” to help plan multiple opportunities that we have in Mexico.

Tom also sits on the Board of Directors of the Thousand Smiles Clinic operated by Rotary in Ensenada.

Tom is on the Lake Elsinore School Board, past board President, and has run Cops for Kids program in Lake Elsinore for years.

Tom is going to talk about Thousand Smiles and the new Kumiai Indian Village project – both in Mexico.



No one can say that we are not a fun club!

October 8th Program Speaker

Daniel Lee Stephenson - Founder and Chairman of the Rancon Group

Daniel Lee Stephenson is a businessman who defines the entrepreneurial spirit as a tireless business advocate, generous humanitarian, and dedicated sports enthusiast.  Stephenson owns a group of real estate related companies including Rancon Real Estate, Chardonnay Escrow, and the Rancon Group.

Since 1971, the name Rancon has been synonymous with high quality real estate development in an area of Southern California known as the Inland Empire. Under Stephenson’s direction during the real estate boom of the late 1980s, Rancon was one of the nation’s largest real estate syndicators raising more than $500 million in investor capital.

Rancon’s investment vehicles helped finance monumental projects such as Tri-City Corporate Centre—a 150-acre mixed use business park in San Bernardino, California. He was also actively involved in the development of Bear Creek, a landmark private residential community and golf course, designed by Jack Nicholas, located in Murrieta, California.  In addition, Rancon partnerships have developed more than 25,000 acres of residential properties, almost three million square feet of retail/commercial space, more than seven million square feet of industrial space, and 1.4 million square feet of office space, all within the Inland Empire of Southern California.

Rotary Supports Our Military

Rotary has a long history of supporting our military. The Rotary Club of Temecula has picked up on that tradition and created The Military Family Support Project. Our project is simple in its very own nature. Listen to the issues facing our local Military Personnel, and their families, and apply the necessary resources that are needed to resolve the issue.

Contact Bruce Cripe for more information or to volunteer.


Rotary Avenues of Service

Rotary’s commitment to Service Above Self is channeled through five Avenues of Service, which form the foundation of Rotary.

New Generations Service

New Generations Service recognizes the positive change implemented by youth and young adults through leadership development activities such as RYLA, Rotaract and Interact club service projects, and creating international understanding with Rotary Youth Exchange.

Vocational Service

Vocational Service involves club members serving others through their professions and aspiring to high ethical standards. Rotarians, as business leaders, share skills and expertise through their vocations, and they inspire others in the process.

Community Service

Community Service is the opportunity Rotary clubs have to implement club projects and activities that improve life in the local community.

International Service

International Service encompasses efforts to expand Rotary’s humanitarian reach around the world and to promote world understanding and peace. It includes everything from contributing to PolioPlus to helping Rotary Youth Exchange students adjust to their host countries.

Club Service

Club Service focuses on strengthening fellowship and ensuring the smooth functioning of Rotary clubs.
