November is Rotary Foundation Month.
 
The Foundation is the heart of the Rotary International organization. It helps us make our dreams become reality through the support of District Grants and Global Grants. The Rotary Foundation transforms member donations into projects around the world that change lives! Our District continues to grow in membership which means more Rotarians = more impact in our local and international communities.

Every other week, our club invites local small business owners to share their stories - the history of their business, how they adjusted their operations during the pandemic and how our community can support their success. We alternate between our members and non-members. The upcoming lineup:
 
July 20: Anne Cyr, George, Cyr & Christakos
August 3: Josh Haring, The Mountain Air
August 17: Berni Ann Lewis, Global Healthcare Solutions
Our club worked over the year to acquire a Rotary District 5240 Grant to support 17 Strong, a local nonprofit organization that funds "Victory Trips" for young adults battling life-threatening illnesses. President Matt presented a check for $4,444 to Holly and Steve Teixeira, co-founders of 17 Strong, which was inspired by their late son, Ryan.
Matt Janetski's President's Club theme for 2020-21 was "Long Live Rotary". His poster board featured his 30 favorite music albums and members could choose their favorite for a $100 donation. As a thank you, members of the President's Club received the CD of their chosen album as well as a magnet from Boo Boo Records. Matt designated the $2,400 raised (almost every member joined!) to support Operation Surf, an amazing local organization that transforms lives. It was a rockin' Rotary year - thanks to the members for capping off a successful year of charitable giving.
The Rotary Club of SLO Daybreak is proud to have awarded scholarships this year to students graduating from high school in San Luis Obispo. $4,650 in funds for our scholarship program were raised through our annual club fundraisers and with the support of our generous sponsor of the $3,000 Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) Scholarship, Chevron.
