Rotary Day is celebrated at the United Nations every year and this year it is on November 9th. Rotary will also be hosting five special events throughout the world next year culminating at the Rotary International Convention in Honolulu, HI.
Diego Valazquez, from the Conejo Valley Rotary Club, presented a check for $500 from his club for our Venezuela project of providing filters for dialysis machines. Cesar Zambrano shared information about the project, which our club donated $3,000 towards, and Stella Ortiz read a letter of thanks for the Camino de Santiago Rotary Club.
Diego Valazquez talked about a very important wheelchair project from his Conejo Valley Rotary Club. He shared a video and included on each table handouts about how we all can participate in this program.  For as little as $75 you can help purchase one wheelchair. 
Please help if you can and send checks to: The Conejo Valley Foundation, 1111 Rancho Conejo Blvd., Suite 501, Thousan Oaks, CA 91320.
Make sure to include your name or company name and that you heard him speak at our club@ For more information click here to email Diego directly.
