Rotarians @ Work Day 2013

The Concord-Diablo Rotary Club’s 2013 Rotarians at Work Day was a resounding success!  The mission was to assist the Parkhaven Baptist Church with painting the building they are converting into a six-bedroom facility for young (11-18 year old) unwed mothers, and helping to build three planter boxes for a garden in back of the facility.

We started off the day really early (10AM) and got right to work!  By the end of the day (2PM) the building had been painted and the planter boxes were complete.  Members of our club were joined by members of the Carondelet Interact Club.  Molly even recruited two willing volunteers, since she thought it would be nice not to have to make the long commute on a Saturday from Calaveras County.

With everyone on hand, we were able to get all the projects completed, and a great suntan too!

Pre-Superbowl Community Service a Success!

Joined by the Concord High Interact & Carondelet High Advisor, members of the Concord-Diablo Rotary Club worked today to spread five-yards of tan bark at the playground area. Great job to all the members who participated: Kathy Lafferty, Beri Kasper, Nancy Glenfield, Karen & Kristen Valles, Edi Birsan, Jeff Kasper, Al Browning and from Concord High Co-president Emily and AJ, as well as Carondelet advisor Joann DiDonato.








Interact Fundraiser February 14th at Rocco’s in Walnut Creek

As many of our readers know, Valentines Day is one of the biggest days of the year for any restaurant.  It’s also a day of giving — Rocco Biale, the owner of Rocco’s in Walnut Creek is giving an unbelievable gift to our Carondelet / De La Salle High School Interact Club.  He has agreed to donate 25% of the day’s food revenue to the club!

All you have to do is eat at, or take out, Rocco’s Restorante in Walnut Creek on February 14th.  That’s it.  We all gotta eat — many of us will be going out to dinner that night.  Why not do some good too!

Rocco has supported so many community organizations over the years — His continued generosity is unprecedented — and greatly appreciated!

If you can’t make it on February 14th, that’s OK — Make sure you go to Rocco’s and show your support.  Please let him personally know you appreciate his generosity!  In addition to service great food, he’s a nice guy too!
