President's Message
I was somewhat familiar with the fellowship of Rotarians as I grew up with several Rotarians in my family. It amazes me how a little pin on the lapel of a jacket can instantly turn strangers into friends, now that I am a Rotarian myself. A group of people who live by the highest moral standards and who do the right thing is what Rotary means to me. So, it didn’t take me long to make up my mind when I was asked to join the Rotary in 2016. It was the warm welcome and the sincerity in each handshake that made me feel at home and among friends on day one.
Each one of you is involved in some way or another trying to achieve our common goals. The level of engagement you demonstrate on a daily basis is reflective of the pride that comes with being associated with our club. That is the secret sauce, which has made my year as your president a real pleasure. You have consistently worked as a team despite personal challenges and differences in points of view.
It is imperative that we continue the momentum that has been gained by your efforts. The only way to do that is to grow the membership of the club. It would be a dream come true if each one of us could bring just one additional member to the club. Walt Disney said, “If you can dream it, you can do it”. It can be done, and you can do it!
I am blessed I have gained so many friends here at the Rotary Club of Redondo Beach. I thank you for the incredible support I have received from you during the first half of my presidency and look forward to closing the year strong.

Redondo Beach Police Detective Scot Martin told Rotarians
that telephone scammers "look for ways to get cash or something
of value from you that can't be traced." He added, "Be vigilant,
check your credit regularly. I check mine every two weeks."
Martin explained several common telephone and internet
scams, noting some thieves have gotten away with a much
as $60,000 cash from unsuspecting Redondo Beach residents.

About 35 members of the Rotary Club of Redondo Beach participated in a gun safety class at the shooting range of the Redondo Beach Police Department.  The event. The event was held on Saturday, February 11th.  "Civilians don't normally have access to the range," said Rotarian and commander of the Reserve unit of the Redondo Beach Police Department. "Our objective was to teach gun safety," he said, and we taught Rotarians to shoot a 9mm pistol, a .45mm pistol and a long rife." The Rotary Club has long raised funds for the Reserves' activities. It recently donated $5,000  to the reserves from the Rotary Club's Community Foundation.

Rotarians once again did the honors after the city’s Superbowl Sunday 10K & 5K Run. We poured beer – free, two cans each!  The club has been pouring beer for decades. The first batch of runners – hundreds if not thousands -- came about 45 minutes after the start of the 5K. Then, an hour later, the main group of runners showed up after completing the 10K run. Their reward, because there can be only one winner per race, two cans Michelob Lite. Shown above are Rotarians who worked the booth.
