The Rotary Club of Temecula is proud to announce the hosting of nationally recognized motivational speaker Scott Greenberg to speak at their weekly Rotary Club meeting. Greenberg is scheduled to speak on Wednesday, January 26, 2011 at 12:00 at Wilson Creek Winery in Temecula.
For the past four years, Greenberg has been the official speaker for the RYLA (Rotary Youth Leadership Awards) camp and the PRYDE (Personal Rotary Youth Development Experience) camp both of which are held at the Thousand Pines Conference Center in Crestline, CA.
“We are very excited to have Scott speaking at our club,” says RYLA chair Barbara Langdon. “Scott is funny, inspirational, and engaging with both the youth and the adults. The camp group leaders enjoy his speaking every bit as much as the kids. Scott has an uncanny way of reaching a variety of audiences with stories and practical wisdom that anyone can use.” Read more...
Our float is #54 out of 98 (counting equestrian units, floats, dignitaries, and opening military flyover). Counting floats only we are float #26 at the mid-point of the parade. Jeanne is in a bright pink Mexican folklorico dress riding on the bear wearing a sarape. Go to www.rotaryfloat.org to see the float design and the float riders and outwalkers in our parade costumes. I wish you all a very Happy and Safe New Year! See you in 2011! ~ Jeanne McClellan, AG, District 5330
This year our club served 199 families in the Temecula Valley by providing food boxes with everything necessary for Thanksgiving Dinner. Supporting the efforts of the following agencies: SAFE, Michelle’s Place, Oak Grove, Boy & Girls Club, and the Temecula Valley Unified School District. Additional donations were received from several businesses and other non-Rotarian groups. Thanks very much to Vail Ranch Steak House who provided a fantastic BBQ Buffet for the workers on Monday night.
We have an outstanding team led by Bob Brown and Rachel Mason, who recruited over 70 Rotarians, New Generations Rotarians and friends of Rotary to participate in the event. What a great effort and congratulations to all on a job well done!
Club member Julie Ngo will represent Rotary International District 5330, with over 50 clubs in the Inland Empire including Perris, Menifee, Wildomar, Murrieta, and Temecula clubs, on the Rotary float in the 121st Rose Parade this weekend. The Rotary Rose Parade Float Committee’s 31st consecutive entry in the Tournament of Roses Parade truly celebrates the work of Rotarians worldwide. The theme of the 2010 parade is “A Cut Above the Rest” and the theme of our float is “Service Above the Rest”. Putting together a float is an ambitious undertaking, not least because parade rules dictate that every inch must be covered with organic materials such as flowers, fruits and vegetables, or seeds. The Rotary parade float is funded each year by contributions from Rotarians in 3,000 clubs throughout the US and Canada. Rotary International has maintained a spot in the exclusive event, which only allows 60 participants, since 1979.
