28 July 2014 — Lori Hall (Live): Safe Water Project by Global Classrooms For Peace

MESSAGE FROM THE PRESIDENT

Another lazy, July week.  Or is it? There is a lot going on at the Rotary E-Club of the GSFV!

Our program this week sheds light on how Global Classrooms for Peace is improving the lives of many children and adults in the Fijian Islands.  View the video presentation to see what GC4P itself has accomplished since 2006, and it’s most recent work in partnership with UCLA graduate students to provide safe water to the residents of the Islands.

On the home front, our E-Club is hard at work on upcoming projects, including our next quarterly Food Drive on August 17, 2014, at Gelson’s in Sherman Oaks, as well as our 5th Annual Dance for the Children Fundraiser for Polio Plus, on September 20th, at Arthur Murray Dance Studio, also in Sherman Oaks.  Our monthly E-wareness programs on health issues are also in the planning stages.  In the months ahead, look for E-wareness programs on Suicide Prevention, Breast Cancer, and Bone Marrow & Blood Cancers, among others.

As always, be sure to check back here to engage in our enlightening weekly programs, and to stay informed on our projects and activities.

Linda Catran
President, 2014-2015
