Scotts Valley Rotary

Valley_RotaryInternationalScotts Valley Rotary had a couple of really great speakers from our own club in the past few weeks.

Current club president Tony Gianotti presented the service project where he was the team leader of a group who brought eye care to rural Bolivia. What an amazing trip, thank you Tony!

We participated in a vocational visit to Slawinski Auctions. Rob Slawinski explained how the auction business works. Both fascinating and educational.

In addition, we sponsored the Teacher Appreciation Breakfast for all the amazing teachers in the SVUSD district. It is a yearly favorite of our club.

Thanks to all the SV Rotarians who gave their time to pour beer and wine at the Scotts Valley Art, Wine & Beer Festival!
