President's Message

President 2020-2021
Greetings fellow Rotarians and guests!
Welcome to the Rotary E-Club of One World!


Dear Rotary E-Club of One World:

What an exciting time to be involved in Rotary! Around the world, Rotary clubs are doing their part to make Service Above Self a reality. In our own club, we have recognized that during the time of this worldwide pandemic the need to make sure that people are fed is greater than ever with so many people having lost jobs and income. With that in mind, our International Club Service Director, Bill Boyd, after meeting with the club service project committee, was able to direct $3,000 to the Volcanes Food Bank in Mexico, an amount that will provide 300 families with food for two months.

Here is the information provided recently by International Club Service Director Bill Boyd:

“Great news, the Volcanes Food Bank in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico District Grant in the amount of $3,000 has been approved. Funds will be transmitted to Mexico tomorrow, by our cooperating partner, the Santa Barbara/Puerto Vallarta Sister City Committee, Inc. The following email and letter detail this action.”

“Dear Bill Boyd, International services chair of Rotary E-Club of One World D5240”

Attached is an appreciation letter from Santa Barbara/Puerto Vallarta Sister City for Rotary E-Club of One World D5240 generous donation (Check received today Tuesday, Oct 13, 2020) earmarked for the Volcanes Food Bank in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico that helps sister city families in crises due to the pandemic. Per Rotary E-Club District Grant request SB/PV Sister City will forward the food purchase receipts totaling the amount of the donation once Puerto Vallarta Rotarian Art Fumerton (who started the food bank) sends them to us just like he has done for all donations previously sent.

We are happy to inform, that as of today more than $14,000.00 had been raised and when this is added to the $13,000.00 already sent combined with the funds from Rotary E-Club District Grant (if approved), we anticipate the sustainability goal of the Food Bank to the end of the year will be met

hopefully by the end of this month.

As Chair of the Rotary Club of Santa Barbara North International Services Committee, I extend our appreciation for joining with SB/PV Sister City, Rotary Club of Santa Barbara North and Rotary Club of Santa Barbara Sunrise in support of this very important economic sustainability project. Gil Garcia - Treasurer”

Great job, Bill Boyd, and all in the club who helped see this contribution come to fruition.

And more action is coming soon. Our Club Service Project Committee is soon going to announce the award of funds for local community service projects that will take place in communities where our club members live.

Thank you everyone for making our club a vibrant club where Service Above Self is our work and passion.

Finally, it is my last opportunity in this format to remind you that the District 5240 Virtual Conference is right around the corner on November 6-8, 2020, and registration is now open. You can find more information and a registration link at

Thank you, Dominique, you saw the need and you acted selflessly to help a country and it's people to bring back their lost culture, "bravo"! 
Education and culture are important for any country but after hearing about Benin, I realize the beauty of what you are doing for them.
