Interested individuals are invited to hear the following speakers in October at upcoming meetings of the Rotary Club of Del Mar-Solana Beach.  The club’s meetings are held over breakfast from 7 to 8:30 a.m. at the Morgan Run Clubhouse.

Friday, Oct. 3:

Jan Weir

will speak about the Mexican American Educational Guidance Association and its scholarship program for San Dieguito Union High graduating seniors of Latino heritage.  These scholarships help students overcome financial obstacles that prevent them from attending college.  Otherwise, many would opt to work after graduation because of the need to help their families. San Dieguito Union High School District covers Canyon Crest Academy in Carmel Valley to the south to La Costa Canyon High School in south Carlsbad to the north. Note: Weir is a longtime supporter and docent of the San Elijo Lagoon Conservancy.

Friday, Oct. 10:

Adrienne White

of Social Advocates for Youth will describe its work to support the positive development of young people, their families, and communities throughout San Diego County.  SAY serves more than 30,000 individuals, prenatal through adult, each year through its family resource centers, home visitors, and many community partnerships.  Individuals and families contact SAY directly, while others are referred to it by schools, courts, law enforcement, and community organizations.

Friday, Oct. 24: Kate Glenn

will educate the audience about Community Supported Agriculture  and local Seabreeze Organic Farm.  Seabreeze is in Carmel Valley, about a mile from the I-5/Carmel Valley Road intersection. Following the CSA philosophy, it provides local communities with fresh, seasonally grown foods, free of chemicals and genetic modification.  The more people know about CSA and Seabreeze, the more they will know their farmer and can support local biodiversity, clean air, social responsibility and land stewardship.
