February and March Service
House Of Hope
Reminder deadline for donating for the House Of Hope Valentines gift bags is February 10th at Wednesday's meeting. The plan is to give them to House Of Hope on Friday so please try to donate so we can make the women of House Of Hope's day. As of now we have $20 donated and 3 bags of small gift items. We have 19 bags to fill...I will state again. $20 donations...3 bags of gifts...19 bags to fill. I will be at Tony's around 5 PM Wednesday so come early and enjoy adding to someone's Valentine's day joy by helping put together the gift bags.
March Vets Dinner
Every year we have the Vets Dinner but due to the pandemic we are having to rethink our efforts to add value to local veterans. Please feel free to send any ideas to Tom Marquez to consider as we plan our March service. Thank you.
The February Board meeting will immediately follow our regular meeting.  Everyone is welcome to join and be a part of the discussion.
What you missed last week:
Last week Yolondo Loveless joined us from Blackhawk Country Veterans Affairs to share what his office does to enhance and improve the lives of veterans in our community. This includes assisting with claims, pensions , burial/cemetery benefits, VA health enrollment, Vocational Rehabilitation and Employment, Educational Assistance, Utilities and Bills, and Shelter and Housing. They also provide veterans gas cards and transportation assistance and more to make sure veterans in our community are getting their needs met . He also shared with us 2021 initiatives and coming events.  We thank Yolondo for speaking with us and for all he does to help those who truly put service above self.

Rotary Opens Opportunities
Rotary is not just a club you join. It is an invitation to endless opportunities. It opens opportunities to serve in a project as big and historic as End Polio Now and also in a small community project, where you just plant a tree. It opens opportunities for you to live a richer, more meaningful life, with friends around the world, based on our core values. Everything we do opens another opportunity for someone, somewhere.
The 2020-2021 theme is: Rotary Opens Opportunities.
