La Jolla Rotary, LJHS Rotary facing busy lineup

La Jolla Rotary and local high school students are in the midst of a busy schedule.

Two club members and 12 La Jolla High and two Bishop’s School students spent the weekend at Rotary’s Youth Leadership Awards (RYLA) program. The three-day leadership conference in Idyllwild brought together more than 250 students and Rotarians to learn leadership skills and make new friends. On Tuesday, they shared their experiences at La Jolla Rotary’s lunch meeting.

Next up, from April 30 to May 7, the Rotary and the LJHS Interact Club will be restoring benches and picnic tables at the La Jolla Recreation Center. The project will start with preparatory work on April 30, with refinishing work done the following week at the high school’s wood shop. Then on May 7, the clubs will reassemble the newly refinished benches.

Later in May, Rotary and Interact members will head to Tecate, Mexico, to build homes for two impoverished families. Each home will be completed in one day using innovative new construction materials and techniques supplied by La Jolla-based Icology Group, according to Rotarian Cal Mann, who advises the LJHS Interact group.

Funding comes from the Harmony & Health Foundation, private donations by Rotary Club members and fundraising events conducted by Interact club members. They will celebrate the completion of the project on May 21 with a candlelight labyrinth ceremony at Law Street beach in Pacific Beach. The event is open to the public. Voluntary contributions for future homes will be accepted event.
