July 2008 Poverty Food Program

On Thursday, July 18th, the Rotary Club of Wilmington distributed groceries to 20 of the most neediest families in Wilmington as part of the Sts. Peter and Paul Poverty program.  Once a month, Rotarians distribute groceries to these individuals.  For many of these families, they often wonder how they are going to provide meals for the children.  The Rotary Club of Wilmington indeed "Made Dreams Real" for these families today.

Thank you to Juanita Naranjo for taking the lead this month and doing the shopping and for putting the bags together.  THANKS JUANITA!!!!

Fiesta Corazon Del Puerto
A few years ago, Margie Hernandez ran for Honorary Mayor of Wilmington as Rotary's candidate.  Upon election, she decided that she wanted to do something with her found fame and decided to create a Fiesta for Wilmington which is known as the Heart of the Harbor.  That being said, "Fiesta Corazon Del Puerto" was born.

This weekend will be the 4th Annual Fiesta and it will be held at Bayview Field located at Harry Bridges Blvd. and Neptune Avenue.  As always, we will have a booth at the Fiesta so that we may share our story on how we, as an organization, "Make Dreams Real."

If you have not yet signed up tp volunteer at the Rotary Booth, please contact President Sergio at sergioc@ek-ek.com to sign up.  There will be GREAT entertainment all weekend and it promised to be a lot of fun.

Remember, we are only in week 2 of the new Rotary year.  If you have missed a meeting, you can still have perfect attendance by making up at the Fiesta!  How better to make up while listening to great entertainment and doing some good work while doing it.

Kudos to Margie and the Fiesta Committee for a job well done!!!
