Thank you to the Sponsors of the 5th Annual Lovers Key Boat Show, Market & Seafood Fest

Chris Riesen, President 2019-20Welcome

Chartered in 1978, The Rotary Club of Bonita Springs is the preeminent business networking and service organization in Bonita Springs.  Our club offers you an opportunity to network with people who operate their business affairs on the highest level of integrity and ethics.

Our club foundation distributes nearly $50,000 in annual donations that have a direct impact in our local community and across the world.

Locally, we distribute dictionaries in local schools; promote “Josh the Otter” water safety program for young children; recognize the best and brightest students from Bonita and Estero high schools and feed the hungry through Meals of Hope and the Bonita Springs Assistance Office.

We also support the local efforts of Habitat for Humanity. Additionally, our club participates in a Rotary ​“10 Million Meal Challenge” ​food and fund drive competition to coincide with Feeding America’s Hunger Action Month.

Internationally, we save lives through the “Gift of Life” program; support Rotary International’s efforts to end polio and have partnered with Central and South American Rotary Clubs to deliver clean water.

We have provided disaster relief to Haiti and Nepal. Plus, distributed wheelchairs in Belize, El Salvador, Haiti, Honduras and the Bahamas.

We are returning to the Bahamas in March of 2020 assisting in the delivery of another 280 wheelchairs!

We Rotarians are committed to fulfilling Rotary’s motto of “Service Above Self.”

If you would like to learn more about our Rotary club, attend one of our club meetings every Wednesday morning at 7:30 am, (7:00 breakfast) (directions and meeting information here).

What's on my mind is the extraordinary kindness and generosity of friends. Bob and I are blessed to have amazing people around us. Thank you to Howard and Sharon for the Torrance Bakery delivery, to Gary and Teri for the grocery delivery, and to Aileen for the delicious homemade meal she dropped off yesterday. No, we aren't sick, just coping with some additional challenges right now. I love you all! Here are the first roses from our garden.

Pic of the Day.
Taken from one of the suspension cables by a maintenance worker, this shows how dangerous their job really is. It also shows the great view they have. Enjoy the Day! 😍

Grapes! There are lots of grapes on the 4 vines I planted a 5 or 6 years ago. Bob and I built an arbor to support them. Now screening it in to keep the raccoons from getting all the fruit like they did last year.
