Club News
A small group of Ignacio Rotarians headed to Angel Island to enjoy the day and watch the Blue Angels (how appropriate!). A good time was had by all and some great shots of the Blue Angels were taken.
The Rotary Club of Ignacio’s speaker on September 21 was Thandeka Tutu-Gxashe who is the CEO of the Desmond Tutu Tutudesk Campaign Centre.  This Campaign addresses the 95 million desk shortage in sub-Saharan Africa, by aiming to provide 20 million of these environmentally friendly, portable Tutudesks by 2025.
 
She thanked the RCI for their donation of $12,000 (funded by a combination of grants from the Rotary District and the Rose C. Stone Foundation)--which will provide 1,000 Tutudesks.
 
Thandi (to her friends) is a Paul Harris Fellow and was appointed an Ambassador for Women & Girls Empowerment by Rotary International President, Jennifer Jones.
 
During her presentation, Thandi provided the background on Tutudesks and the positive impact for school children in South Africa. The Tutudesk, or lap desk, provides a hard surface for children to do their schoolwork.  Thandi also provided insights on growing up with a well known father.
 
In response to the devastating fires in Maui, The Rotary Club of Ignacio raised more than $13,000 funds for the Hawaii District 5000 Maui Fires Relief Fund.  Our Club members always open their hearts and wallets in times of disasters.  We have raised substantial amount of money responding to hurricanes, Northern California fires, Ukraine and now the fires in Maui.  Mahalo to all who have helped support the emergency response and recovery in Maui.
CONGRATULATIONS   to Mikaila Levine who was the recipient of the Rotary Club of Ignacio  $1,500 STEM Scholarship. She is a graduate of Archie Williams High School & will be attending Cal Poly San Luis Obispo in the fall as a science major!! Mikaila loves the outdoors and helping people..  
The Rotary Club of Ignacio has awarded $18,000 to 12 graduating High School seniors in Marin County, concentrating on the STEM or Trades fields, attending colleges in CA in the fall of 2023!

Congratulations to John Marshall, the District 5150 Rotarian of the Month. A well-deserved honor for his tireless efforts to support our club as well as championing fund-raising events such as the recent Relay for Life. John is the technical support who makes our meetings run smoothly as he brings in videos and visual aids as the situation requires it. He also consults with other clubs who need technical assistance.
Way to go, John.
