Our club heard a powerful message on June 4th from Opal Singleton, President and CEO of Million Kids -- an organization dedicated to the prevention of child trafficking. Opal meets with business executives, city and county officials, community action groups and concerned individuals to explore ways that they can strengthen the fight against trafficking in their community. From exploring safe haven for a teenage victim who has been exploited through prostitution to working with corporations that employee thousands of laborers, Opal uses her background and experience to find creative solutions to stop trafficking.Read more...
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."

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.
