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.
