Del Mar-Solana Beach Rotary supports youth education, locally and worldwide.  Among its local programs, DMSB Rotary encourages student education, community service, and leadership growth at Canyon Crest Academy (CCA) in Carmel Valley through annual scholarships and sponsorship of the school’s Interact Club.  Interact clubs are Rotary’s service clubs for young people, ages 12 to 18, in 109 countries.

Kevin Cahill, DMSB Rotary’s founding president, recently delivered checks totaling $1,800 to support the upcoming “TEDx Youth San Diego Conference” at CCA on Nov. 24.  The TEDx Youth Conference is a program of inspiration, introspection and goal setting, organized and run by high school students from CCA, its Interact Club and other schools.

At last year’s conference, student attendees wrote down how they wanted to change the world.  These commitments were written on specially carved keys that are displayed in the lobby of the CCA Administration Building.  This year, under the theme of “Unlimited,” the student organizers and advisors are working to inform and inspire an even larger assembly of high school students to unlimited growth.

The Del Mar-Solana Beach Rotary Club works to make our local community and the world a better place.  It meets over breakfast on Friday mornings at the Del Mar Marriott Hotel, 11966 El Camino Real.  For more information, call Richard Fogg (858-693-7556) or Diane Huckabee (619-818-0528), or go to
