Friday Project Fair chaired by Philippe Lamoise (thank you to Rotary Club Santee-Lakeside president Elana Levens-Craig for the photo)
Rotarians from around District 5340 gathered this weekend at the Catamaran Resort for the annual District Conference. Attendees learned about District programs (many of them youth-centered), including LEAD, RYLA, Model UN and MusiCamp. Our own Philippe Lamoise chaired the Project Fair on Friday March 1, 2019, which featured many projects in our sister district, District 4100, that are need of partner clubs.  On Saturday March 2, 2019 the morning session included presentations on community service projects, many of which yield a high return at low or no cost, such as Rotary Club of Rancho Bernardo’s Rotarians at Work Day project that relieved residents of tons of trash at no cost, and the Rotary Club of Santee-Lakeside’s Stamp Out Hunger Food Drive that ensured that food collected by U.S. Postal Service workers stayed in the community.  The afternoon session highlighted the many international projects that district clubs support that address Rotary’s six Areas of Focus.  Rotary Club of Del Mar had one of the highest per capita attendance rates in the district!
