Rotary BBQ sizzles despite rain

(Left) RSF Rotarian Michael McCarthy drove the four-block area around the school just before the Fall Festival to encourage people to attend the event, despite the rain. Event Chair Heather Manion is holding the sign.

Although it poured rain, hundreds of people attended the Rancho Santa Fe Rotary Club’s Rancho Days Fall Festival BBQ. Chairs and tables were moved inside the great food tent and guests stayed through the closing. Hamburgers were donated by The Inn at Rancho Santa Fe. Many businesses in town contributed terrific raffle items. Rotarians were hard at work in their red aprons all evening, accommodating every guest. A great time was had by all. Rumor has it that the real party happened during cleanup!
