Elevator Speech
We are a nonpolitical, nonsectarian social organization comprising local business, civic and professional leaders. We meet regularly to get to know each other, form friendships and through that we are able to solve community and global problems with service projects. Like:
  • Scholarships at 5 local high schools,
  • Interact Clubs at 3 local schools.
  • Support the YMCA, City Center, Ventura Botanical Gardens
  • Promote literacy and career guidance in schools
  • Internationally we support a medical project in Ethiopia and contribute to eliminating Polio worldwide.
The Rotary Club of  Ventura-East meets Thursday noon to 1:30 at the Poinsettia Pavilion in Ventura. Come and learn more about Rotary's humanitarian service, high ethical standards in all vocations and help build good will in this community. Use your professional skills and talents to make a difference.

Last week we had a chance to present our Club’s 1st Business Ethics Award to JR Luna from Concourse Motors. So many members of our club use the services Concourse Motors provides and really, we could not have chosen a better person to award.
We also saw a presentation from one of our co-Presidents Joe Strohman on the trip to Mexico and the build a house in one day event. Great program and great cause. Fun and extremely meaningful to the recipient of the new home.
This week we will be presenting the Student of the Quarter and 8 Nurse Scholarships. This is always a great program and once again very meaningful, the reason why we are Rotarians making a difference in our community and in the world.
Please save the dates for:
Step Down at Rum Fish & Vino on June 29th 5:30pm
Tri-Club Fundraiser at Ventura State Park on September 23 11am to 3pm
