Rotary Club of Little Tokyo, Los Angeles

Glendale Welcomed Us Warmly

Hiro Yokota and Makiko Nakasone were very warmly welcomed by the Glendale Rotary on April 28.  We could thank the 45-member club in person for their generosity to sponsor our club, send PDG Chuck Reinhart as our mentor, and purchased our 4-Way Test banner.  We exchanged the club banners with President Armen Khalafyan.
One of the inspirational moment is when the long-time Rotarian and the most generous member, Sam Carvajal, stood up after the presentation by representatives of the Healthy Start, a Glendale Unified School District's department which serves the homeless and foster care students.  Sam proposed, "Let's donate to Healthy Start.  I will match ever dollar!"  In the next 5 minutes, more than 10 members raised hands, donating $100 each.  With Sam's matching, they donated more than $2,000!
