Wednesdays at Noon at Claim Jumper in Temecula
Seventeen local students visited our Temecula Rotary Club May 28th to share their experience with PRYDE - a Rotary youth leadership camp for 7th graders held last month in Crestline. We sponsored these students to attend the camp, which features team-building activities and motivational speakers who focus on acceptance of others, confidence-building, leadership, and "Service Above Self."
Whether you participate in Rotary’s long-term or short-term Youth Exchange programs, you’ll learn a new way of living, a great deal about yourself, and maybe even a new language. You’ll also be an ambassador, teaching people you meet about your country, culture, and ideas. You can help bring the world closer – and make some good friends in the process.
More than 8,000 young people each year have experiences like these through Rotary Youth Exchange. It’s the opportunity of a lifetime. Are you ready for it?

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.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.
