Monarch School CEO Erin Spiewak appeared as one of the show's guests, along with Monarch Alumnus Cynthia Valenzuela, who attested to the positive, life-changing experience Monarch School gave her and...
Practicing peace
Nations around the world will observe the International Day of Peace on 21 September, a date designated by the United Nations in 2001 as "a day of global ceasefire and nonviolence." Rotary's commitment to building peace and resolving conflict is rooted in the Rotary Peace Centers program, formed in 2002. Each year, the program prepares up to 100 fellows to work for peace through a two-year master's degree program or a three-month professional certificate program at university partners worldwide. Today, nearly 1,000 peace centers alumni are applying their skills — negotiating peace in conflict...

                  Welcome Address
 
 
 
As we launch into the 2016-2017 year we will be challenged by many unsettling local, state, federal and international events and cultural/sociopolitical concerns.  In the midst of all this, Rotary can be a bright light, a shining beacon of good will, humanitarian effort and just plain fun.  Lord knows we all need some of all of that!  That is why I am looking forward to this next year where we can spend time, money and effort reaching out to one another and the world around us.
 
Thanks to all of you ahead of time for your willingness to give.  I am forever impressed by this club and the individuals in it who collectively walk forward hand in hand to eat together, laugh together and work together to accomplish much in little old Paso Robles.  More money for scholarships, youth projects, community projects, food for the needy and international projects to address polio, hunger, education, clean water.  Wow!  You guys are awesome.  So hold on to your horses as we start, run, and finish a great year.  I hope I can keep up!
 
Tony
