President’s Message
I trust that each of you and your families have enjoyed time together throughout this holiday season. We are excited about this New Year and looking forward to engaging with each of you as we move forward.
Now is the time for each Rotarian to focus and ask what you can do to make our Signature Fundraiser Event – The International Food and Wine Festival a true success. We have printed brochures and made them available for you to give to potential sponsors, and to invite your friends and companies you do business with to purchase tickets. The brochures are available at weekly lunches, and they contain a list of the organizations our Club has supported and offers contact information with email addresses for us to follow up and answer more questions.
Club Guide 2022-2023
The Club guide for our Club will be available on our website within the week it has been updated and ready for publication. Please forward any questions or suggested changes to our Vice President of Committees, John Bartlett.
With Heavy Heart, I am sorry to have to announce the passing of Delores Fritzsche, the wife of Past President Bill Fritzsche. They were married in 1953 and had seven children and lived in Pacific Palisades. Bill preceded Delores in death. Her services will be at Corpus Christi Church in Pacific Palisades at 10:00am, Friday, January 6, 2023.
