Gorin to speak at Glen Ellen-Kenwood Rotary


First District Supervisor Susan Gorin will be visiting the Rotary Club of Glen Ellen-Kenwood at its regular Zoom meeting on Wednesday, March 3, 5:30-7 p.m.

Gorin is making herself available for a question and answer session where she will discuss the variety of challenges facing Sonoma County, including the county’s response to COVID-19.

The Rotary Club of Glen Ellen-Kenwood meets on the first and third Wednesday of the month, 5:30-7 p.m., via Zoom. The first half hour is dedicated to club business, with the speaker starting around 6 p.m. At its upcoming Feb. 17 meeting, the speaker is Melissa Kelly, executive director of the Sonoma County Regional Parks Foundation. She will speak on the fundraising efforts to restore Hood Mountain Regional Park after the Glass Fire. The club recently donated over $4,600 toward this effort. The Rotary Club of Glen Ellen- Kenwood has been involved in myriad service projects over the last six years, ranging from fire relief here at home to helping create a water sanitation project in Guatemala. Most recently, club members have been distributing food provided by the Redwood Empire Food Bank to members of the community, helping serve free meals at the Sonoma Springs Community Hall to those in need, and providing funds for the cleanup and restoration of Hood Mountain Regional Park.

Visitors are always welcome at meetings. If you would like to attend the Feb. 17 or March 3 Zoom meeting, or any other meeting on the first and third Wednesday evenings of the month, please email club president Kyle Fisher at [email protected], and he will send you the Zoom link.

The club is made up of local men and women dedicated to serving the community and the world. If you want to work with others to better our community, contact Kyle to find out about becoming a member.
