August was another busy month for the Chino Rotary Club as we worked with the Inland Empire United Way and distributed $14,400 in checks to worthy charities. Melinda Robbins spoke about human trafficking and the Rotary International Convention. And Larry Welborn spoke about Why Journalism is Important.
On August 2, Larry Welborn, my father and hero, a retired journalist for the Orange County Register came to speak to the Chino Rotary Club about Why Journalism is Important.
My Dad discussed the main four reasons journalism is important. Those reasons are:
- to stand up for those who can’t stand up for themselves
- to bring out the truth
- to make your readers care
- to make a difference
On August 16, the Chino Rotary Club visited the Inland Empire United Way to take a tour of their facilities. The United Way does a lot for our local community including manning the 211 call center and collecting food and clothing for needy families.
Several Rotarians stuck around to write cards for terminally ill children to help brighten their day.
We shot this video to document our visit: Chino Rotary Club Visits the Inland Empire United Way.
On August 23, Melinda Robbins shared her experience at the Rotary International Convention in Atlanta, GA where they focused on one of the biggest issues facing our world today, human trafficking.
And on August 30, we distributed $14,400 to five different local charities: Boys Republic, the Chino Rotary Club, Love Them All Foundation, Priceless Pet Rescue and The Let It Be Foundation.
