JEFF BOTT, Community Engagement Manager for the Transportation Corridor Agencies will give us a brief history of The Toll Roads of Orange County and discuss a project they are working on right now that will improve regional mobility for drivers on the 241 Toll Road and the 91 Freeway: the 241/91 Express Connector. We are planning to build a dedicated lane from the 241 Toll Road directly into the 91 Express toll lanes, with construction starting hopefully next year.
The Transportation Corridor Agencies, the public agency that built and manages the 73, 133, 241 and 261 Toll Roads, is the largest network of toll roads in the state.
JEFF is responsible for communicating to the public about the Agency’s projects and initiatives.
He is a graduate of Cal State Fullerton and is also a member of the San Juan Capistrano Rotary Club.
District Governor DON CASPER shared with us words of wisdom that everything we do and say should make Rotary relevant, attracting like minded people to give back to their communities and make Rotary the most relevant service club in the world. DON’s goal is to make Rotary Relevant in the 2022/2023 year!
We are delighted to have our own New Members KURT HEIDELBERG and DAVE BYERS share their stories with us. Often funny, inspiring, and motivational we always appreciate hearing about our fellow Rotarian members.
WHAT IS A NEW MEMBER CRAFT TALK TO ROTARY?
Rotarians share their life stories and experiences that have shaped their character. A craft talk may include a brief history of life and career, how and why they became a Rotarian, characteristics most needed for success in their business or profession, hobbies, and family life, and often include humorous stories.

SEPTEMBER ROTARIAN BIRTHDAYS
Thought for the week:
“Over the years, those who have seemed to me to be the happiest, contented, and fulfilled have always been the people who have lived the most outgoing and unselfish lives.” -Queen Elizabeth II
As we bid a fond but emotional farewell to the Queen, we can keep these words close to our hearts – this quote speaks to the essence of Rotary.
