The Rotary Club of San Luis Obispo Daybreak invites its members to nominate a local nonprofit organization to apply for funding for one or more of its programs. SLO Daybreak seeks applications for small grants that focus on youth, education, families and/or seniors in our San Luis Obispo community. The application must be received by Friday, February 14, 2020.  Request an application from Community Awards chair, Bill Almas; or scroll down and click the link under "Home Page Download Files" on the far right to download the application. Return the completed application to Bill Almas or mail it to P.O. Box 906, SLO, CA 93406.

The Practical Relevant Leadership Skills (PRLS) course is coming to the Central Coast February 21-23. The goal of PRLS, begun in 1993, is to provide a set of training sessions where current and future Rotary leaders could learn to become more effective in their leadership roles, both within Rotary and in life. The curriculum includes courses over the weekend covering Leadership, Facilitation Skills, Communications and Projects & Grants.

Click here to learn more and to register for the February 2020 training for only $250 and to complete the course in just one weekend instead of over several months. Master PRLS is recommended for all Rotarians that plan to serve on the SLO Daybreak Board.

Club graduates of the Basic PRLS and Master PRLS  program include Mike Alamo, Bill Almas, Leslie Coe, Berni Ann Lewis, John Mascarenas, Dave Nilsen, Charlene Rosales, Annie Shanks, Harry Sharp, Doug Shaw, Steve Sicanoff, Liz Summer and Linda Wilson. 
Our Rotary club is part of a regional "district" comprised of over 70 clubs and 3,500+ members in four different counties - all interested in "Service Above Self" - from Paso Robles to Simi Valley to China Lake. Need to know what's happening in District 5240? Be sure to visit the district events calendar to be "in the know" with district-wide events, trainings and learning opportunities. There is so much more to Rotary beyond our club and participating in District 5240 activities is one way to broaden your knowledge and involvement in Rotary. This year's District Governor is Savi Bihm from the Rotary Club of Simi Sunrise. January is Vocational Service Month, click here for this month's message and here for a special video message.
Show your Rotary pride, share it with others and don't miss out on any Rotary news, events, photos and club meeting announcements!
