President's Message
Rotary InternationaI President Holger Knaack's theme for 2020-21, Rotary Opens Opportunities, asks Rotarians to create opportunities that strengthen their leadership, help put service ideas into action, and improve the lives of those in need. When this theme was announced early in 2020, little did we know how the Covid-19 pandemic would change our lives and challenge the ways we would have to think, react, and adapt to create those opportunities
 
Had you asked most of us at the turn of this decade to use "zoom" in a sentence, you'd hear something like "I'll zoom into the store for a couple of things and be right back." Today, it's more like, "I'll see you at the Rotary Zoom meeting on Wednesday at noon." Today's cautions for physical distancing to guard our health has opened new opportunities for social connections in our virtual space.
 
For a lot of us, being introduced into a new world of technology has expanded our Rotary reach. It has freed us from planning our weekly meetings around speakers who can physically attend our venue.  We now see that anyone in the world with an internet or telephone connection can be a presenter. New opportunities.
 
Maintaining and growing membership may be one of our biggest challenges. For more than 80 years, we've been a club that has thrived on handshakes and hugs, house parties and work parties, lunch conversations and community involvement. In these times, we need the collective creativity of our entire membership to find new opportunities to continue and strengthen our connections, bring in the Next Generation of members, and continue our legacy of "Service Above Self."
 
Together, let's create opportunities.
 
Stay well,
Kerry J. Witkin
President 2020-2021
 
Encinitas Rotary News
The City of Encinitas Senior Citizen Commission in partnership with the Encinitas Rotary Club is pleased to announce the award recipients for the 2017 “Senior Citizen of the Year Award” and “Service to Seniors Award”. This awards program is designed to identify and celebrate people who have selflessly contributed to City of Encinitas as a senior citizen role model or as someone who advocates on behalf of senior citizens.

Encinitas, CA - The annual Encinitas Rotary Wine & Food Festival has become a popular mainstay event in the community. In its 13th year, the Festival supports charities, whose local or international focus is on children or the community. This year the Festival was held for the first time on the second hole of the Encinitas Ranch Golf Course.  Over $104,000 was raised for the 18 participating charities. Recipients were awarded their checks at a special Encinitas Rotary Club presentation on August 17, 2016. During the ceremony, each beneficiary gave a short description of the work they do and how the funds will be used.
