Fellowship & Service 2021-2022

The last Thursday of the month our club is meeting at an off-site location (venue’s TBA) in the evening – we could meet at a local restaurant, visit with another club that meets in the evenings, a member business or home – the purpose is fourfold:

  1. To offer an evening option to members who can not attend a noon time,
  2. To bring more visibility to our club by being in the community either in San Marino or neighboring and open these events to extended family and potential members
  3. To allow to collaborate and support other clubs and our local community and
  4. To think out of the BOX that everything does not need to happen at a noon hour and a lunch

Our 1st gathering at the garden of our President JP’s home boasted an attendance of 70

Our 2nd gathering at Ogopogo Brewery was to connect us to the Alhambra New Gen and consider collaboration.  50 attended.

We hope you will support by attending, inviting and chip in to help make these gatherings a success!

San Marino Rotary Club Presents Lucille Norberg with a Distinguished Service Award - 8/5/21

Video by Gilda Moshir

TOO OLD FOR SERVICE ABOVE SELF, THINK AGAIN

Ninety-nine year old San Marino Rotarian Lucille Norberg was recently presented with a Distinguished Service Award by Club president, JP Mainguy. While the treat of getting Covid-19 has kept Ms. Norberg sequestered at home since March 2020, her Service Above Self continued.

Norberg has been vital part of the selling of tickets and public relations for all of the 10 Car Classic Shows, held each June (except for 2021, in August). These car shows generate over $100,000 per year to the San Marino Club’s charities foundation.

She would be seen going to all of the retail stores along Huntington Drive and Mission Road, putting posters in merchant windows, and leaving show tickets on the counter for merchants to offer their customers.

Her business-career smarts taught her to call and send out Save-The-Date postcards, beforehand, to retailers, so they would know she was about to pay them a visit. These personal contacts also resulted in her selling ad space in the program booklet or being a sponsor, and to buy their own tickets.

On the event day, Ms Norberg would welcome all guests at the VIP tent, insuring that each knew where to find their reserved seating.

Since her induction in 2006, she has sponsored a dozen new members, including the immediate Club past-president, the current Club president and the president-elect.

And, she has been the point person for reservations for the Club’s annual Foundation Luncheon held each March at the Huntington Library, Art Gallery and Botanical Gardens. Attendance is at about 170 Rotarians, guests, awardees and Ambassadorial Scholars.

She was the instigator of the twice a year Rotary on the Town dinners for Rotarians, spouses and guests. These are opportunities for Rotarians to enjoy the social part of membership… getting to know each other better.

Club President Mainguy in presenting the DSA boasted “Lucille Norberg is the energizer bunny in our Club, always talking up Rotary, doing much of its work, and leading by example. If a 99-year old can manage, how about all you “youngsters”!

2021 – Medical Equipment for Campana Municipal Hospital in Argentina

The Argentina Hospital Equipment project provides the Campana Municipal Hospital with an ultrasound machine. This will be a global grant project in cooperation with the Rotary Club of Campana with matching grants from the Rotary Districts and Rotary Foundation. The project meets Rotary’s focus on disease prevention and treatment, as well as maternal and child health.

At present, the Campana Municipal Hospital has an old ultrasound machine with difficulties to obtain spare parts. The hospital serves the population in Campana of about 100,000 habitants as well as those in surrounding cities such as Zarate, Capilla del Senor and Cardales. The additional and new ultrasound machine will reduce wait time, which is currently at well over a month for non-emergency cases. The beneficiaries are mainly patients with low economic means and have no health insurance. About 18,000 patients are catered to each month at this hospital with a monthly average of 1,000 ultrasound studies. The project is expected to be completed during the second quarter of 2022.

San Marino Rotary had worked successfully with Campana Rotary in 2018/9 on a global grant project to supply heavy duty farm equipment to the Agriculture Education Secondary School in Campana.
