Fascinating speakers coming to Del Mar Rotary Club

By Emily Figueiredo
Del Mar Rotary Club publicity chair

The Rotary Club of Del Mar will present some very exciting speakers and presentations in the near future. Each meeting at noon on Thursdays at St. Peter’s Episcopal Church in Del Mar is filled with member highlights, project updates, fellowship, lunch and a special presentation. Topics range from local happenings that affect our community, advancements in technology or medicine, environmental issues, nonprofit organizations, humorous memoirs and so much more. Each meeting is unique, inspirational and often educational!

Coming up on Feb. 16, Rotarian David Diaz will give a speech about his studies in Spain this year. David is the Del Mar Rotary Club’s Ambassadorial Scholar this year, which is a student-sponsored to expand their studies abroad. He is flying in from Spain to speak us on Sustainable Peace Education Projects. His presentation is quite timely as February is Rotary Peace Month.

Then on Feb. 23, Del Mar Rotarian, Kim Guevara-Harris, will discuss her experience and personal involvement with aid to Afghanistan. She will inspire us all as she presents on one particular child whom Rotary has helped come to the U.S. for medical help.

Margie Smith Haas, famous female race car driver will entertain us with stories of “winning” in a man’s world and her fabulous experiences with racing around the world on March 1. Margie is a local resident and the only woman ever to win a professional road racing championship in North America. On March 8, Past Rotary District Governor and now a Del Mar Rotary member, Philippe Lamoise, will speak on Rotary International’s Group Study Exchange program which many Del Mar Rotarians have been a part of in Africa, Asia and beyond.

The Del Mar Rotary Club meets every Thursday at noon at St. Peter’s Episcopal Church on 14th Street in Del Mar. Please visit www.delmarrotary.org for more details and we hope to see you at an upcoming meeting or event!
