Reubens for Rotary – You are invited!! – Jun 4th,2017

Please join us for our second annual gourmet extravanganza, Reubens for Rotary 2017.  Come enjoy hand-crafted cheeses, salami, kraut, and pastrami, all home-made.  Plenty of vegan and vegetarian fare as well.

We hope you can join us. Save the date!
When? Sunday June 4, 2017, 3 pm to 7 pm
Where? Home of Steve and Suzanne Carlson
3126 La Mesa Drive, San Carlos

This is our all-artisanal smorgasbord for Rotary’s good work around the world, in particular our water project to build an aqueduct for Berber villages in Morocco’s High Atlas Mountains.

Spearheaded by local attorney and San Carlos Rotarian Steve Carlson, this project will benefit the villages where he previously served in the Peace Corps as a Health and Sanitation Volunteer more than two decades ago.

This water project will benefit three villages by converting the existing earthen irrigation ditch into a properly engineered aqueduct. The new aqueduct will more efficiently distribute the limited water from the snowmelt in the mountains, which are situated at the edge of the Sahara Desert.

The project in Morocco is proceeding in tandem with the Rotary Club of Marrakesh, and construction is now getting underway.
