'Rotary Connects' April 23 meeting open to all

Anyone interested in finding out more about Rotary is invited to an evening event sponsored by the Rotary Club of Menlo Park on Wednesday, April 23, from 5:30 to 7 p.m. at LB Steak House, which is located at the corner of University Drive and Santa Cruz Avenue in Menlo Park.

Dubbed "Rotary Connects," the event is an effort by the club and its members to make connections with the local community and explain how the club's numerous service projects benefit youth, families and the less fortunate.

Mayor Ray Mueller, among other city leaders, will attend the event.

"As mayor, I have made connecting with our business community a high priority," Mr. Mueller said. "Our business community is the bread basket of the city, and business works best when it is connected."

Rotary clubs can be found in more than 100 countries, and all adhere to the motto "Service Above Self." In Menlo Park, the club conducts service projects, including awarding more than $100,000 in college scholarships to local high school students.

A $20 fee will be charged to members and non-members at the door. Appetizers, wine and non-alcoholic beverages will be served. To reserve a spot, contactYuhui Chen at yuhuifitness@gmail.com by Monday, April 21.
