Today we had the honor of hearing from Special Olympic Gold Medal Winner, Michael Leon, who personally described his experience at the Special Olympics. A call to help was provided as Glendale increases its presence at the Special Olympics. Michael was a true inspiration as he inspired us to do more, help more, and be aware of our citizens with intellectual disabilities. Thank you Michael.

To our members who continue to make this a better place to be! Watch for new pictures each week.
In August, we gathered at the beautiful home of Eric and Trisha Hamilton to spruce up our boat (to Fire it up) for the upcoming Aug. 27 Rotary boat race. The event, held each year in the Redondo Beach Marina, features cardboard boats made by various rotary clubs. Two years ago, we won the race, despite complaints from other clubs (maybe because we blew them out of the water). This year, our own club president, Tom Propst, was joined by returning racer Sharon Townsend, as we tried to gain back our title. The event took place on August 27 at the Redondo Beach Marina. Tom and Sharon won first place in their first heat, and with only less than 10 min of down time, raced again and came in 2nd place!

President Tom Propst welcomed LA County Sheriff Jim McDonnell as our guest speaker on July 1.
Our fearsome craft for this years district picnic has received a new coat of paint and a new look for its sure-fire win in this years annual event. As you can see from the photos, the color scheme has been brought more into line with current presidential thinking, although there is still no word on a name yet, so stay tuned!
We are going to the orphanage the weekend of Aug 1-2. This trip, we will be taking all the children to a swimming pool complex that's built into a vineyard. We are going to serve hot dogs & watermelon.
Help us help the kids beat the heat. See for yourself the great things that Rotary does.
