SERVING THE COMMUNITY AND THE WORLD
Point West Rotary showed off why we're the Best Damn Rotary Club on the Planet at the recent District Conference in South Lake Tahoe!  PWR was named the Large Club of the Year thanks to the work of our President Mary Lyn Kagan, her board and all of our members just doing the amazing and incredible things we do to make the world a better place! 
 
Also, several individuals from our club were recognized for their incredible efforts in Rotary.  Tom Cicchini received the Service Above Self Award - the highest level of award an individual Rotarian can receive!  Tom works tirelessly and donates his time, talent and treasures to support the eradication of polio and it was wonderful to see him recognized for his efforts. 
 
Two other individuals also received very prestigious awards...both PP Gary Pevey and PDG Brian Moore were inducted into the District 5180 Hall of Fame.  This award is given to those Rotarians in our district who have been in Rotary at least 20 years and continues to serve the district, their club and Rotary.  Brian was presented his Hall of Fame plaque at his home shortly before his passing, but he knew that he had been inducted which was important.  Unfortunately, Gary was also not able to receive his award at the conference due to a medical issue he incurred at the conference.  But he will receive it in the near future.  No more than 6 Rotarians from our District can be inducted each year, so it was special to have both of them receive this recognition this year.
 
We were also awarded the ShelterBox Hero Silver Award for our club's support of all the good that ShelterBox does around the world!
 
PWR also brought home the Gold in the following categories:
  • Administration
  • Community & International Service
  • The Rotary Foundation
  • Public Image
  • Youth Services
Congratulations to all of the individual winners and all of our club members who made these awards possible!
 
          
PWR Dictionary Chair Mike Garcia with the assistance of PWR Interact Chair Don Rhodes enlisted the talents of the students in the newly formed Encina Interact Club to affix book plates on 50 dictionaries. In turn the high school students delivered the books to the nearby Katherine Johnson Middle School.

Thanks to Mike Garcia for chairing this event and all the PWR club members who shared their time in putting the smiles on the young impressionable students.
 
PWR's own DG Desiree Wilson is serving as an ambassador for the 2022 Rotary Rose parade float. The 2022 Rose Parade marks the 42nd consecutive year the RRPFC has spearheaded Rotary’s representation in America’s New Year Celebration. This year’s theme, “Changing Lives Through Education,” aligns with one of Rotary’s seven areas of focus, Basic Education and Literacy.   A sixteen-foot-tall owl embodies both the spirit of self-improvement and Rotary’s determination to make the tools of education available to everyone in every land. Books, a quill pen and a hybrid apple/globe  symbolize the importance of education throughout the world. Though this is not an official program of Rotary International, six sponsoring Southern California Rotary Districts and hundreds of individual financial supporters from all over the continent help the Float Committee design, build and enter a float that promotes Rotary and the important work Rotarians do throughout the world. Rotary International President Shekhar Mehta and his wife, Rashi waved to the crowds as they rode on the float.
