Nicole Burke of Hermosa Beach Sister Cities will be presenting more detail about their programs in Loreto Baja Mexico including fire rescue training and important fundraising toward badly needed equipment.  Rotary is on deck and several clubs joining hands to support.  Hermosa Beach Rotary Club Foundation already provided partial funding for two trainings right now in Loreto: 1) Advanced Rope Rescue and Extractions and 2) Basic Fire Investigations

Today, Hermosa Beach Sister City Association, is asking for support for the purchase of a Fire Truck for Loreto.

Our April service project on Tuesday, April 9th will assemble dental kits for the South Bay Children's Health Center.  All are welcome.

Excited for Tuesday, March 26, to learn more about one of Hermosa Beach's community action nonprofits, Leadership Hermosa, 
hoping to give local eateries a boost with its 2024 class project- Top Dish Hermosa! 

In the month of April, 40 local restaurants offer a menu that includes a three-item tasting sampler plate. People who choose the tasting sampler can then vote on their favorite of the three by scanning a QR code.  One recipe from each restaurant will be featured in a “Top Dish Cookbook” to be published in June.

Hermosa Beach Farmers Market is Making a difference

Rotary members and program participants are improving lives in communities around the world every day through thousands of service projects. Explore the good work that we’re doing locally and globally, and share these projects through social media.

Today, over 70 million people are displaced as a result of conflict, violence, persecution, and human rights violations. Half of them are children.

We refuse to accept conflict as a way of life. Rotary projects provide training that fosters understanding and provides communities with the skills to resolve conflicts.  As a humanitarian organization, peace is a cornerstone of our mission.

We believe when people work to create peace in their communities, that change can have a global effect.

South Bay Families Connected is a FREE community resource is available to teens, parents and schools for social and emotional wellness of South Bay youth.  SBFC provides support, resources and education to parents, caregivers and teens to help them reach their full potential to hopefully lead healthier, more fulfilling lives.  
Proud to be working with the Weiss Foundation to provide scholarships to girls and boys in Kenya so that they can go to High School. Our scholars just started high school via boarding school and it is a very big deal! If it wasn’t for outside support, many would be home instead.
'Tis the Season...

Thanks to the collective spirit and hard work of the Hermosa Beach Chamber of Commerce, Saturday, March 11th will mark the 27th year for the Hermosa Beach St. Patrick's Day Parade!  According to it's co-founder and our current club president, J Travers Devine, St. Pat's is a "uniquely American event that only caught on in Ireland as a 'thing' in the 90's.   It was a celebration of the freedom Irish immigrants found in America to speak their language which was prohibited and practice their religion, also prohibited in Ireland by their English Colonial masters. "Step dancing" was also prohibited. 700 years the Brits ruled Ireland, mostly with an iron fist. The Irish in Boston & NYC began St. Pat's parades in the late 1800’s."
 
 
Welcome back President Travers Devine for the Rotary year 2022-23! This is Travers' second term as club president, his prior term 2014-2015.  Travers relocated from the South Bay to his poolside home in Riverside a few years back while continuing support to Rotary as a Paul Harris sustaining member and as the Hermosa Beach club's International Chair and liaison to our sister club in the Philippines Subic Bay Freeport Zone.

Every day since the brutal Russian invasion of the Ukraine, John Hewko has connected with those under attack.

Hewko, the General Secretary and CEO of Evanston-based Rotary International, takes out his cell phone and calls people he knows in Kyiv and in other parts of that nation, friends and family.

Hewko understands Ukraine and the current plight of Ukrainians far better than do most Americans.

His parents escaped from Ukraine during World War II. Hewko later went to there to work and, as a young lawyer in 1991, helped write the first draft of Ukraine’s post-Soviet constitution.

Education shapes the future of an individual.  It may seem accessible to most of us but it is often unattainable for many.  Rotary International established Education as one of its primary areas of focus throughtout the world.  Hermosa Beach Rotary has supported several initiatives both locally and internationally.

The Weiss Scholarship Foundation (based out of the Chicago area)- is a charitable organization striving to support Kenya’s children through mentorship and learning opportunities for high school education.   Come learn more tomorrow, November 30 at 12:15 p.  All are welcome.

If you would like the link to join us via zoom tomorrow- please email:  info@hermosabeachrotary.org.
 
 
Hermosa Beach Rotarian, Dean Nota, and Past President, returns to the podium in-person at the Rotary Youth Building.  The building is open and all are welcome.  If interested in renting the facility please email: info@hermosabeachrotary.org.
