Would you like to see for yourself how Rotary leads efforts across the globe to build strong international relationships, improve lives and create a better world? Next month, club member extraordinaire Karen Cebreros will be conducting a tour of several Rotary projects made possible by a recent Global Grant: providing small loans to women coffee producers in Guatemala and Chiapas, Mexico. Rotarians, family and friends are invited to join Karen from February 17th to 27th for this fabulous opportunity to visit coffee co-ops, learn how women in coffee benefit from microfinance, and gain a new appreciation for how your generous donations and Rotary’s global reach are furthering the cause of growing local economies world-wide.

Ten Rotarians from the San Diego Downtown Breakfast Rotary Club and nine of their family members traveled to Ensenada on January 6 to take part in the annual "Fish Across the Border" project in conjunction with Mexico's Feast of the Three Kings celebration. The group was joined by Rotarians and friends from the Rotary Clubs of Avalon, Vista, Montebello and San Diego (Club 33).
The organizer and host of the event was Club Rotario Ensenada Centenaria. On Friday evening, the group packed more than 1,000 food baskets and loaded them, in addition to 1,000 pre-packaged food baskets and 1,000 blankets and toys, into vehicles. On Saturday morning, they distributed these items to more than 1,000 pre-selected individuals at 12 sites in and around Ensenada.
