Cruise With A Cause
From Governor Elect, Ellie Patterson:
 
Enjoy fun in the sun, fellowship, great speakers and breakout sessions at the 2019 Destination District Conference while cruising down to Ensenada, Mexico on the ship “ Inspiration.” We sail from beautiful Long Beach, CA to Ensenada, B.C., Mexico, departing Friday, October 25th at 6:30 pm and returning Monday at 7:00 am  October 28th, 2019. (It’s a week after the car show!).  Experience the internationality of Rotary while working side by side with fellow Rotarians and Rotaractors on a project in District 4100 while docked in Ensenada. Wine-tasting tours, shopping and exchanging new ideas with local Rotarians can also be experienced.
 
Ocean breezes, great food (24 hours a day), evening strolls on the deck with a gorgeous Baja moon overhead, renewing old friendships and making new acquaintances, what could be better? The deposit is $50.00 -$100 depending on size of cabin. Ocean view cabins are $454-$484 and inside cabins are $404-$409. This reasonable price for the entire trip is all-inclusive. (alcoholic beverages not included). Sorry folks! I tried.
 
See you on board the Inspiration! Reserve your stateroom today by emailing fellow Rotarian Mike Sloan : mike@cruiseconnections.com or call him at 800-248-7447 or 336-659-9772. He’s very helpful and planned the District Conference Cruise for us in 2008 which Rotarians still talk about. You can also contact me for additional information: ellie@thetempconnection.com

Making the World A Better Place
Remembering our fellow Rotarians, Bev Porras and  Nancy Haugh.  Both Rotarians helped to make the world a better place!

We will remember Bev Porras' smiling face and helping hand.  Most recently, Bev had been the head of the Family of Rotary.  She diligently sent cards to fellow Rotarians for birthdays and illness.  She was a frequent visitor at the National Parks Store, where she attended many lectures.

Nancy was a former president of the club and attended our Christmas Party last year as we celebrated our 20th Anniversary.  Nancy drove herself from Vail for the party!  What a trooper.
