Wednesdays at Noon at Claim Jumper in Temecula
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.
A VERY HAPPY ROTARIAN. HE DID NOT WIN THE LOTTERY.

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.Read more...

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.
