ROTARY HOME TEAM
August 15 marked the 5th time that the Rotary Club of Mission San Rafael offered free lite home maintenance to San Rafael Seniors through our ROTARY HOME TEAM service. On this very hot Saturday, 11 volunteer Rotarians fanned out in teams of 2 to help 12 San Rafael homeowners with their To-Do Lists. This included simple things like changing light bulbs, hanging pictures, hanging drapes and replacing smoke alarm batteries to clearing leaves from roof gutters and back yards, installing new toilet seats and fixing shower knobs.
As always, we enjoyed helping others who either might not have the financial means of getting this work done or simply don't know who to call that they can trust to be in their home. Getting to know other club members better is a wonderful side benefit!

Rotary is an organization of business people who volunteer their time, talents, friendship, and funds to better the community they live in through their local Rotary Club, and to better the rest of the world through Rotary International. For example, Rotary International is the prime force in the effort to eradicate polio worldwide. As an organization Rotary has over 1.3 million members worldwide.
Each Rotary club has a personality and Mission San Rafael Club boasts a ‘renowned’ Kazoo Band, the development of Rotary Island, and, capping it off, origination of Project Tooth Fairy.
Join us for lunch and see what Rotary at Mission San Rafael is like. We serve with fun. Our luncheon meetings feature speakers from the community on topics of interest to all who live here.

San Rafael Evening Club celebrated their Club Charter Event on June 12 and Mission San Rafael Rotary is the sponsoring club. The party was well attended with a fun Mardi Gras theme, and dressing in costume was encouraged. It was a fun evening with over 80 people registered for the event! Two of our members have chosen to transfer to the new club, Terri Carrillo as well as Emily Perez. We wish them well with their transfer, and expect their experience and energy will be a great asset to San Rafael Evening. Hope to see them for a makeup at our club soon!!
The San Rafael Evening Club meets on Thursday every other week. They have a meet up page > San Rafael Evening check it out!
Recently several members of our club joined members of the newly formed San Rafael Evening club in sorting and packing donated books. These books will join other previously-packed books in a large container waiting to be shipped to Lebanon for the Libraries For Peace project. LFPP was created by Aref Ahmadia, another San Rafael Rotarian whose own childhood in Lebanon taught him the importance of education.
