Stories
President Luan Mendel recently noted: "I believe I speak for all involved in saying the Diamond Masquerade Ball was a rousing success. The food and music were terrific, our celebration of Jack Copeland was a lovely moment for everyone present, and attendees successfully bid on an amazing assortment of silent and live auction items. Watching Chief Al Davis bump and grind as part of his sales pitch for "A Day at the Range with the Chief" was worth the price of a ticket all by itself. The event was also, of course, a fundraiser, and it appears from an early tally of income and expenses that we made in the neighborhood of  $6,000. Many thanks to Rich Boccia and his committee that planned event, to those who helped with set up and clean up and the event itself, and to all who attended. Well done, Mammoth Lakes Rotarians!"

Calvin Forsythe, 2016 recipient of our college completion scholarship, received his first check from club president Luan Mendel on July 19th. As required by the terms of the scholarship, Calvin successfully completed two years (and two A.A. degrees) at Cerro Coso Community College and was accepted as a transfer student at San Diego State University. The club will provide financial support for Calvin's junior and senior years, and we look forward to following his progress toward a four-year degree.
