5/15/2018 Today's Program: "Don't Meth With Me". Karen Bash introduced our speaker, Ms. Maureen Anderson, a member of the Rotary Del Norte Club who gives these talks to area school children. "Don't Meth With Me" is an anti-drug program for 5th graders. The mission is to educate children and families about the consequences of methamphetamine, arming them with the tools necessary to combat illicit drug use and addiction. To accomplish this, representative's go into schools and engage students on a personal level, opening their eyes to a bright, drug-free future. Thanks, Maureen for this great and timely presentation!

October 3, 2017 "WORKING CLASSROOM"

A wonderful presentation by Ms. Gabrielle Uballez, Executive Director of WORKING CLASSROOM, a multi-ethnic, inter-generational community of student & professional artists, writers, actors and directors with a conscious commitment to supporting new and diverse voices and visions in the arts. The underrepresentation and caricature of historically ignored communities hampers our understanding of who we are as a nation and how we interpret our past and contemplate our future. WORKING CLASSROOM contributes to a more nuanced understanding of American identity by training aspiring artists and actors from historically ignored communities and creating art and theater by, for and about these communities.

WORKING CLASSROOM is a wonderful group deserving of support. Rotary is proud to share their information here.
