Military Support

LOCAL WOUNDED MARINE CORPORAL RECEIVES GENEROUS DONATION IN CONJUNCTION WITH ROTARY’S MILITARY FAMILY SUPPORT PROGRAM.

Corporal Jon Schumacher will be leaving the Marine Corp at the end of June and his family has chosen Temecula to make their home; Jon is a triple amputee after stepping on an IED in Afghanistan in October 2011. After approximately 100 surgeries to repair the damage he is learning to walk using prosthetic legs but it’s a long slow process. When members of the Rotary Club’s Military Support Committee learned of the needs of this family he contacted Jeff Conner at Pacific Mobility in San Marcos to see if they could help.

Pacific Mobility has a long relationship with the military, and according to owner and President Jeff Conner they unfortunately learn of these kind of needs much too often. Jeff knew he wanted to help so he contacted Bruno Independent Living Aids, Inc., who they have done business with since 1986. Bruno is a family owned company, a leading manufacturer of Stair Lifts based in Oconomowoc, WI. When owner Mike Bruno heard Corporal Schumacher’s story he agreed they had to help.

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.
