HOW TO JOIN MEETINGS ON ZOOM:
We would love to see everyone in person at Rotary Club of Redlands, but if that is not possible, the following Zoom option is available by going to:
The HONORABLE SENATOR OCHOA BOGH provided a legislative update and discussed her committee involvement with budgets, education, and public safety. Criminal justice reform is one of her major concerns. She wants to see fewer incarcerations and more educational programs. She shared an interview with criminals where she learned their number 1 reason for turning to crime was a broken, dysfunctional and abusive family, and number 2 reason was lack of adequate education. SENATOR BOGH is seeking to strengthen funding to help children in lower socio-economic groups. She supports assessment testing to learn what needs remedying and then targeting those areas with special educational funding. BOGH emphasized importance of citizen involvement. She said, “Your voice has power, own it, and use it.” To sign up for SENATOR OCHOA BOGH’S newsletters and weekly, “A Look Ahead” email, visit https://sr23.senate.ca.gov/subscribe.

PAUL HARRIS FELLOWS
Individuals who contribute $1,000 to Rotary Foundation are named as Paul Harris Fellows (PHF). Donors may be Rotarians or persons in whose name a contribution has been made. This year Rotary Club of Redlands honored six PHF donors, BRIAN AHLERS, DIANNA LAWSON, JENNIFER DANIEL, DAVID AHLERS, TODD LOZA and ANNE MARIE MYERS.
Over the years more than 350 individuals associated with this club have been distinguished as PHF’s and more than $350,000 has been donated to The Rotary Foundation in their names.
The PHF recognition was established in 1957 and reached 1 million PHF’s by 2006.

One month down, eleven to go – past presidents were right, it does go by quickly! That doesn’t mean I’m one month closer to salvation, er… I mean “presidential retirement.” It means we have eleven months left to achieve a great many goals, fundraise for scholarships and our community, and engage in service. The Murder Mystery Dinner is officially less than three months away – Fundraising Chair DAVID GAUTHIER and Event Chair THOMAS JACKSON would be happy for the help, I’m sure. No doubt a request for sponsorships, ticket sales, bringing in new attendees, and other help will be forthcoming. Stay tuned. And happy birthday to our July birthday ROTARIANS!
