How lucky our El Segundo Rotary Club has been to be able to give back to the community even during these challenging times. We received a donation from the Water Replenishment District and purchased 24 sleeping bags that were given to the Vets in the tent city at the VA hospital grounds. Because of the generosity of our members and Chief Donovan we gave all 100 apartment residents at Park Vista a $10 99CENTS store gift card, along with Godiva Candy and Cookies contributed by LAWA. Joycatchers.org gave us 5 miniature decorated trees to raffle off at Park Vista. As you know, I live at Park Vista, and I have received so many thank you cards, emails and calls. The residents were so grateful.  We had a wonderful Holiday party on zoom December 17th. Ugly sweaters and hats were worn by many, prizes were given for contests and some great music was shared plus we got to have a visit from Santa Claus. Many smiles were on the screen and I heard laughter which I just loved. Thank you Marsha for organizing and being our Master of Ceremonies.  Spark of Love didn't receive as much money for toys as they have in the past and couldn't get gifts for CASE teenagers.  We have money budgeted for CASE so we gave $100 so they could buy $10 Target gift card for 10 teenagers. We sponsored a House Decorating Contest and our judges Melissa Albers, Nancy Jacobson and Shannon Magid announced the winners with special thanks to Lily Craig and Chevron who donated gas cards to the winners. Elyse delivered cookies made by Interactors to a local housing  facility for Vets and Carolyne donated a piano to the ADM. As we look forward to a new year I wish you all Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah and a 2021 filled with much more joy and health than we have experienced in 2020! 
Best regards, Val
On 12/19, ES Rotarian Carolyne Smigelski with her mother Miyoko Johnson donated their antique weber piano to the Automobile Driving Museum on behalf of the El Segundo Rotary club. Special thanks to Ed Su, Dean Seligman, Val Smith, Marisol and Matthew Herrera, Julie and Michael Mullane for their assistance. We hope it makes a lovely addition to their collection!
Every year our club has a Holiday party where we get together, have fun, exchange gifts, eat and drink and be merry. For obvious reasons, our Holiday party was cancelled this year. Instead we gathered in Zoom and played Bingo, listened to music, played Trivia, and even had a visit from Santa Claus! Special thanks to Marsha Hansen for being the hostess with the mostess and for the amazing cookie prizes! Happy Holidays to everyone in Rotary and to our families and friends!
