Scotts Valley Rotary
“A Cause to Celebrate” was a success, with more than 300 people in attendance. The event was a joint fundraiser for the Scotts Valley Rotary and the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, sponsored by Slawinksi Auctions. Entertainment included an Elvis impersonator and Italian tenor Pasquale Esposito.
Many Rotarians enjoyed a weekend in Squaw Valley while attending the Rotary district celebration from June 1 to 3.
The club celebrated the end of the rotary year Monday, June 25, at Malone’s Grille, debunking President Randy Klein and welcoming new president Cheryl Rebottaro. The club is also forming plans for the coming year, including another humanitarian project in Guatemala and continuing work with local youth.
The club meets at 12:15 p.m. Mondays at the Scotts Valley Hilton, 6001 La Madrona Drive. Meeting dates and upcoming speakers are listed online.
