The East County Rotary is starting it's new year with Stew Menefee as President. Since he is recovering from surgery, the President Elect Mike Whelan is taking a break from fishing and is leading the club until Stew can return. East County Rotary voted to send $1,000 to Durban South Africa to continue to support a fascinating education program and $1,000 for clean water and sanitation to Papua New Guinea.
On the 16th of July I will celebrate my birthday with berries and cream. Everyone who comes will get to participate. Jessie Gray will be having surgery in August. She is a brave and optimistic young lady who does a lot of good in the community. We pray that the surgery will be a success and she will enjoy many more years in helping others in our community. Here is hoping we have a wonderful summer.
