Karen Utley, Teresa Platt & Sandy Maruca at The Village Rotary's meeting at 127 West Social House.
Teresa Platt (Save Gird Valley Steering Committee Member) worked in 2016 to save Gird Valley’s failing golf course from high-density development. She shared her thoughts on the Bonsall Unified School District’s proposal to build a 1,500-student high school at the northern edge of the district in Fallbrook’s Gird Valley. The proposed site on Gird Road has lost at the ballot box five times since 1978, most recently in 2016. Attempt #6 is scheduled for November 2018. Teresa shared her research and what she’s learned.

Village Rotarians and the new Miss Fallbrook and Miss Teen Fallbrook Courts served up burgers and hot dogs at the April 29 Arts In The Park at Live Oak Park. Hundreds of kids, parents and families enjoyed a beautiful day in the park engaged in dozens of creative art and music experiences. Rally for Children knocked it out of the park again!
Village Rotarians and guests enjoyed a visit with VMM 364 Purple Foxes on Tuesday, April 24. Our group was split in two with half enjoying time with Captain Harper and staff who provided a tour of their hanger, flightline and the high tech, tilt rotor MV-22B Osprey. The other group was escorted to the flight simulator where everyone did their best imitation of a Marine pilot. After an hour or so the groups traded places. Lunch at the mess hall followed and more Q and A for our hosts.
Thanks to Major Allisandratos, Captain Harper and staff for their kind hospitality in organizing and coordinating our visit. Rotarians Steve Achard and Karen Utley worked with our Marine hosts to help organize the event for our club.

Our 4 Way Speech winner, Jasmine Jiminez, came in second at the Old Mission 4 Way Speech Contest. She will be going on to the Regionals. Great job Jasmine! You knocked it out of the park!!
For an Eagle Scout project, Joseph Greenwood (in the red sweatshirt), collaborated with Will Shakespeare of the Fallbrook Land Conservancy, to organize today's event of placing markers on the Monserate hiking trail in this 300 acre preserve for the purpose of helping firefighters locate injured hikers.  Fallbrook Village Rotary Club, along with a matching Grant from District 5340, purchased the markers.
Fearless Rotarians Gordon Stone, Nick Beye, and George Archibald hiked up this difficult trail in the rain and helped install the markers.
Great job guys. Thank you for your continuous hard work and community support.

We were fortunate enough to have Ms. Masayo Halpin, retired FBI Special Agent, speak to our club about an extremely difficult topic - Sex Trafficking of Children. Ms Halpin's presentation was very interesting, current, and necessary. We thank her for her work as a retired FBI Agent and her current work making our community aware of a prolific business that is harming our children and our families.
