Sue Wade of Heritage Resources came to speak with the club on the history of the Overland Trail and how the west was connected. Sue is a historian and has extensive knowledge of Native American and settler's history in San Diego County. She described in detail how life on the wagon trail was for families heading west in search of land to claim in the 1800's, and displayed pictures of significant archeology sites that have been discovered locally which tells a story of the lifestyle of early settlers.

Our club met at the home of our club President and had a fantastic time brainstorming ideas of future community service involvement and event planning. Members broke into groups to discuss reasons they joined Rotary and what they like best about our club. Some of the most popular answers were to get involved in the community, business networking, and have the enjoyment of a large social circle.

GUEST SPEAKERS:  Kelly & Chuck Austin – GAVA Kids
“We're often asked how we became so personally involved with a group of kids in distant Namibia, a dry, dusty and often unknown African country. Good question.

The story begins during a 1997 safari when we met Heidi Dednam, a remarkable Namibian naturalist with an enduring attachment to the ecology and Topnaar People of the Namib Desert. Nineteen years (and many trips to Namibia) later, we deeply share Heidi’s commitment to educate, encourage and empower the children of this unique community.  

These young people are growing up with one foot in their ancient desert culture and the other in contemporary Africa. Our Gava Kids organization was created to help provide the education that is their greatest hope for bridging these two worlds. 

As we prepare for the 2015-2016 school year, we invite you to join us in helping build a brighter future for these wonderful young people.”
