Rancho Santa Fe Rotary Club events

By Deanne Motsenbocker

The Rancho Santa Fe’s Rotary Club started out the New Year with a trip to Rosarito Beach, Mexico on Jan. 5 where Rotarians distributed food and blankets to long lines of people in need. The smiles on the faces of so many, thankful for the warm blankets and food staples brought by the Rotarians, was heartwarming.

On Jan. 15, Rancho Santa Fe Rotarians gathered with other Rotarians for a joint meeting of the district’s seven Rotary Clubs. The meeting, held at the Solana Beach Boys and Girls Club, celebrated the great strides that Rotary has helped achieve in the elimination of Polio in the world.

On Jan. 22, the Rancho Santa Fe Rotarians welcomed fellow Rotarian Chuck Limandri who spoke to the club about “Litigation at the U.S. Supreme Court.” Also at the lunch meeting President Matt Wellhouser presented Angel Faces with a check for $10,000 from the recent Rotary/Kids Korps golf tournament benefit.

On Jan. 29, Neil Martin, a patent attorney will speak about the “World of Patents—The Process and Their Importance to the Business World.”

RSF Rotary will be having a special Rotary Social Happy Hour at 5 p.m. on Tues., Feb. 5, at the Rancho Santa Fe Golf Club. Guest are welcome to come mingle and meet members. Cost is $25.

Also a special “Save the Date” note — RSF Rotary will be hosting its First Annual Taste of Rancho Santa Fe on July 20. The event will feature outstanding wines and food and will be held at the Rancho Santa Fe Golf Club.

Rancho Santa Fe Rotary meetings are held at noon on Tuesdays at the Rancho Santa Fe Golf Club. For more information, visit
