Our program Tuesday August 18th was to award our scholarship recipient Isabella Dominguez her funds and to hear more about Bella. Isabella was our speech contest and Club scholarship winner.  Our committee submitted her application to the the District where Isabella competed with all of District 5190 and became a winner.  As the Scholarship Chair I can't tell you how pleased I am for our Club.  Bella's combined total from our Club and the District is $3500.00.
Now here is the icing on the cake. Assistant Governor Joel Muller purchased raffle tickets.  His name was drawn and he also pulled the red marble.  The pot was over $1300.00. A real Rotary moment here, Joel presented Isabella the red marble and said apply it to your education.
Bella was over come with tears of appreciation as she is her main support working her way through college.
And here is the hug.
We were blessed to have many RYE students attend this fun event.  Also Michelle Aikin, Isabella's councilor from Damonte Ranch High School  was present to congratulate Bella.
Next Tuesday we have a very informative speaker from TMWA.  Bill Hauk is the Senior Hydrologist. Let's build up the marble kitty.
