Escondido Rotary Club will be sponsoring 13 - 15 High School Juniors to this year's Rotary Youth Leadership Awards (RYLA) program. We need volunteers to attend in April as Facilitators, and particularly women volunteers. RYLA encourages servant leadership in youth by recognizing and rewarding deserving 11th grade students who are chosen to attend RYLA as an "award" for their past and present leadership and service activities. Check out what it means to be a facilitator and sign up HERE.

Escondido Rotary Club has been participating in a Small Grant Project in Monrovia, Liberia. The $12,000 grant was the result of raising $6,000, which was matched by District 5340. Escondido Rotary Club contributed $3,000, which was possible because of Coeur De Cuisine. The project is to buy books, supplies, desks, chairs and a generator for a school being built in Monrovia. Construction began in October, and should be ready for occupation and learning in 2018. Good job Escondido Rotary club!

The combined Rotary clubs of Escondido are gathering on th 18th of November to plant trees in the city. This is an important project for our members to be involved in, so please plan to join us. RI President-Elect Ian Risely has challenged every Rotary club to make a difference by planting a tree for each of its members between the start of the Rotary year on 1 July and Earth Day on 22 April 2018. Trees remove carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases from the air, which slows global warming.
