What Happened At Our Club Meeting On Tuesday, December 13th and 20th, 2016
Club members and guests began our meeting at Noon on Tuesday socializing and catching up with one another...
Norma has been a very good girl this year and Santa knows it!
Only smiling faces at the El Cajon Rotary Club!
Tim and Dick enjoying a little cheer with Santa
Santa stops by to wish Dana and Alison a very Merry Christmas!
We all enjoyed a great laugh as David received a "Gift" of Training Wheels for his cane from Stu.  Happily, David is way past the need for the training wheels at this point in his recovery.  In fact, his doctor just gave him the go-ahead to get back on the bike.  Easy boy!
We enjoyed a visit from the Performing Arts group at Greenfield Middle School at our meeting on December 13th.  We were treated to several Christmas Carols by the talented group.
Welcome to all of our Visitors

Announcements &    Happy 5"s
  • Alison Cummings - Alison shared with us that Ginger's son, Jean, has been in the hospital for several days with a very serious and life threatening issue with his appendix.  He is in recovery now and is expected to be coming home this week.  
  • Cheryl Minshew - Cheryl will be taking some time off due to a pending surgery.  We all prey that Cheryl's surgery goes well and she recovers very quickly.  Charlie will be leading our meetings for the next few weeks.
  • Max Wright and Jamie Lundy:  Max and Jamie both commented on how nice it was to witness the recent Grant Night Dinner.  Max shared with everyone that Alexandria, head of the San Diego Youth Symphony, shared a story about our grant changing the life of a young student.  The student was taking chello lessons when her mother and father both lost their jobs on the same day.  the family became destitute over night.  The girl wanted to become a demon on the chello and thought her chances were a fantasy.  Our grant was used to provide the student with private chello lessons.  with those lessons, she did become a demon on the chello.  She was subsequently awarded a full scholarship in music to UC Berkely.  Upon graduation, she landed a job in Hollywood in the music industry and is doing very well.  All of this was due to our small Rotary grant applied in the right way.  What an amazing story.  By the way, we only had 21 Rotarians attend the Grant Night Dinner this year.  What a shame if you weren't there for the great stories! 
  • Roger Holtsclaw - Roger shared with us that his daughter asked him to speak to her class of 5th graders.  The program was called "Biz Town" and Roger shared everything about Rotary with the class.  Way to go Roger!
  • Bruce Swinford - Bruce was very proud to share with us that his son and his wife recently purchased their first home in Arizona and had a housewarming party. 
  • Kristine Costa - Kristine made a personal plea for us to support the upcoming Boys and Girls Club Auction/Stampede.  She is needing help with contributions for an Apple watch.  See Kristine if you can help!
  • Debra Emerson - Debra graciously announced that Alison Cummings was recently chosen as a finalist in the Women In Leadership awards luncheon held by the East County Chamber of Commerce.  
  • Alison Cummings - Alison also noted that Kristine Costa was also elected as a finalist at the Women In Leadership Luncheon.  Congratulations to both Alison and Kristine!
  • Joe Mackey - Joe thanked everyone who assisted in raising funds for new helmets for the Christian High School football team.  He also noted the team's record has improved to 3 and 1 on the season, and his prize quarterback is back with the team after an injury.  
  • Doug Williford - Doug is happy to be back with the club after a short hiatus and is looking forward to becoming active again with the club.  We're looking forward to seeing you too Doug!
  • Humbert Cabrera - Humbert was happy to share that his daughter has recently started classed at Santa Clara university with a full scholarship.  He also noted she is suffering a bout of the very common "home sickness" that freshman typically have.
