Ten Rotarians from the San Diego Downtown Breakfast Rotary Club and nine of their family members traveled to Ensenada on January 6 to take part in the annual "Fish Across the Border" project in conjunction with Mexico's Feast of the Three Kings celebration. The group was joined by Rotarians and friends from the Rotary Clubs of Avalon, Vista, Montebello and San Diego (Club 33).
The organizer and host of the event was Club Rotario Ensenada Centenaria. On Friday evening, the group packed more than 1,000 food baskets and loaded them, in addition to 1,000 pre-packaged food baskets and 1,000 blankets and toys, into vehicles. On Saturday morning, they distributed these items to more than 1,000 pre-selected individuals at 12 sites in and around Ensenada.

This year, our club's International Service Committee (ISC) will spread some holiday cheer across the border to the children living in two orphanages in Baja California, Mexico: Door of Faith and St. Innocent. Please join us at Torque Moto Café on Thursday, December 8 from 6 to 9 p.m., where the proceeds from the sale of all beverages will benefit these children. We are encouraging everyone to bring a toy, diapers (size 5 and 6), cleaning products or simply write a check. Invite your family and friends to this fun and worthwhile event. If you cannot attend, we will be collecting donations at our upcoming club meetings. Members of the ISC will deliver the gifts to the orphanages in December, and we'd love for you to come along. Yes, Virginia, there is a Santa Claus.
