December Celebration!
Dear Rotarians and Friends,
In most parts of the world December is a month for celebration, religious or end-of-the-year parties. As Rotarians, we feel a little festive, it is the time to share, and to meet your family and your friends. For our E-club it is time to reconnect, to share our perspective for the year to come, to remember all the good things we have done, to know each other better, and to build more friendship. It always amazed me to think that when you meet a Rotarian in person for the first time, especially a member of your club that you only know from Zoom, you know you are going to meet, not a stranger, but a friend. As Rotarians, we have so much in common, and so much to share because we are animated with the same spirit to do good in the world!
For Thanksgiving our club was able to send $500, plus $297 of personal contributions, to the Conejo Valley Rotary Club which distributed the amazing number of 510 meals to families in need! That represents a big organization and dedication to do good in the community.

The fellowship meeting, on Saturday, December 2, will be for our E-club the end of the year celebration. Elly Scheepers, our President-Elect, will lead the discussion in the spirit of the Holiday Season and allow you to share the joy, your success in 2023, and your hope for 2024. Don’t miss this opportunity to reconnect with your club.
The next Peace meeting will be on Saturday, December 9. Our guest speaker will be Marsha Hunt, an engaged Peace Fellow from Los Angeles District 5280 , who will give us a report from the Geneva Peace Conference she attended the week of November 2. She will explain why “Peace is possible”. Remember that all the members of the E-club are invited to participate to the monthly Peace meeting, which is considered our second fellowship meeting of the month. We have no board meeting in December, we are going dark to give you a break in the season to enjoy the festivities with your family and friends.
December is also the month of gifts, the best gift you can give to your E-Club is your presence and participation in the meetings and projects, to make our E-club a vibrant club.
I wish all of you a wonderful season and the end of the year full of joy and celebration!
With hope and peace
Claudine Schooley

We believe in advancing international understanding, goodwill, and peace, united in the ideal of service.
As a member of an E-Club, you can participate fully online - and enjoy the camaraderie and fellowship with other members through our get-togethers online. We are like a regular club except for online meetings so you can be anywhere worldwide. Great for Rotarian globetrotters and those who live too far from an actual club. Everyone is welcome! 

Our members come from all over the World - you will immediately have access to an international network of friends and true fellow Rotarians! 
We use three applications online to communicate with each other:
  • The first one is via Whatsapp where we communicate with each member in chat. 
  • Our second application is ClubRunner, where you can edit your profile and where you can find documents about our E-Club and our member's list.
  • Our third application is Zoom, we meet on this platform for our meetings. It is very easy to use, we send you a link with a passcode to enter the meeting. You will need a device that has a camera to be able to get the best possible experience!
   Do not let technology deter you from joining our E-Club,
we have many members that will help you navigate and feel comfortable!

Is it too difficult to attend an actual meeting? Are you traveling too often? Do you want to continue being a Rotarian? Then our Eclub might be the solution for you!

If you like what you see, we ask you to fill out a form, and the board of directors will vote to include you as a member. We would love to hear from you and have you join our Eclub.

Backpacks and School Supplies for Cabo San Lucas in Mexico.
In September 2021, at the beginning of the school year, we delivered 50 backpacks and school supplies to second-grade students of the Amelia Wilkes Ceseña Elementary School located in Cuatro De Marzo neighborhood in Cabo. This was led by Rotary Eclub of One World and the Principal and staff from the school. The project has been so successful that we decided to do it again in September 2023.
Thanksgiving is a national holiday celebrated on various dates in the United States, Canada, Grenada, Saint Lucia, Liberia, and unofficially in countries like Brazil and the Philippines. It is also observed in the Dutch town of Leiden and the Australian territory of Norfolk Island. It began as a day of giving thanks for the blessings of the harvest and the preceding year (Similarly named harvest festival holidays occur throughout the world during autumn, including in Germany and Japan.). Thanksgiving is celebrated on the 2nd Monday of October in Canada, on the 4th Thursday of November in the US, and around the same time of the year in other places. Although Thanksgiving has historical roots in religious and cultural traditions, it has long been celebrated as a secular holiday.

Rotary International President R. Gordon R. McInally called for members to capture the world's attention and lead the way toward possibilities far beyond our current expectations.
"The goal is to restore hope — to help the world heal from destructive conflicts and, in turn, to help us achieve lasting change for ourselves." 

A significant way to bring hope to the world is to put a greater emphasis on peace, McInally said. He cited the action Rotary members have taken in the past year to support the people of Ukraine after the invasion by Russia. Rotary has made humanitarian relief a priority, attracting more Ukrainian members in the process. But McInally noted that true relief won't come without peace — not just in Ukraine, but in Yemen, Afghanistan, Syria, and dozens of other places around the globe.

"Peace is the soil where hope takes root," McInally said.

McInally also emphasized the power of continuity, calling for Rotary members to continue the work of some past leaders.
