Club News, Nov 12, 2018

Fireside Chat
Carl and Mary Jane Kruse hosted a Fireside Chat at their home in Poway on Thursday, Nov 8.  Guests, spouses and 15 members enjoyed some great food and time to get to know one another.  Tracey van Putten also organized a special recognition to honor Susan Marsh on her birthday. 
At the end of the social time, everyone gathered in the Kruse living room.  President Mike Moffat had each club officer speak.  He also gave a brief history of how our BEERnardo Festival came to be and how it has evolved into our sole fundraising event.  From a humble beginning in a fenced off area outside Fred Nasseri's Unicorn Jewelry Store in RB, to events at the Courtyard in Westwood, then to the Sike's Adobe, then finally to Webb Park Lake in RB, the event has grown each year, both in attendance and amount of money raised. 
This was a great social event and our two newest members, Sandi Menderson and Brian Gansert, were there with their spouses.  They and other members and guest had a great time learning about RB Sunrise Rotary and the commitment our club has to serving our community and making a difference in the world. 
Thanks to Mary Jane and Carl for hosting this fun club event.

Valley Elementary Holiday Fair
Valley Elementary Holiday Fair - Dec 1   Valley Elementary School, Bowron Road, Poway 7:00 am to noon. RB SunRise Rotary has been partnering with the PTA at Valley Elementary School for this event since 2010.  Al Watson was president that year and he wanted to do something for children.  Sue Herndon knew about this PTA event and suggested that we partner with them. This is now the ninth year that we have helped with this event.
Club Holiday Party
Our holiday party is coming up in December so watch for your invitation as plans are finalized.
Rotary International Assembly Hosting
In January, our club again will again hosting a dinner for the incoming district governors who will be attending the Rotary International Assembly training in San Diego. This year's hosting event will be on Wednesday evening,  Jan 16, 2019.  Be sure to save this date.  Our club's event has always been a great way to learn what other Rotarians do in their district in the world.  What has been memorable at past events is how the Rotary Motto of Service Above Self plays out in each district whose District Governor Elects we host each year. 
We will be using the same caterer, but we will be at a different venue. This dinner has always been a special event for our club because we get to learn about what other districts  around the world are doing and see that Service Above Self is a universal commitment in the world of Rotary. 
District 5340 Events
District 5340 is the host district for the Rotary International Assembly.  Each year DIstrict Governor Elects from around the world come to San Diego for a week of mandatory training.  Clubs in the district help with welcoming and hosting a friendship dinner during the week of this training.
