HEMET – Members of Hemet Sunset Rotary participated in an international project working with the Rotary Club of Rosarito La Mision and Tijuana Oeste Rotary Club. The project was to benefit an elementary school, Escuela Primaria Xayuntamiento, which is located just south of Rosarito, Baja California, Mexico. The school is situated so that its play yard, which is fenced with large bars, looks out at the blank wall of a building. The Rotary clubs decided to give the children something better to look at, and a local artist, one of the members of the local Rotary, designed the mural. The three Rotary clubs came together to paint the mural over a weekend.

Hemet Sunset Rotary was represented by Laura Brock, president of Hemet Sunset; Linda Krupa, Hemet city council member; Dan and Ruth Goodrich; Roberta Neff; Sophia Serrano and Brian Flannigan.

Hemet Sunset Rotary meets every Wednesday night at 5:30 p.m. at the Diamond Valley Arts Center on Harvard Street. Visitors are welcome. Hemet Sunset Rotary is gearing up for their big fundraiser, Festival of Frights, Saturday, Oct. 19, at the Hemet Public Library. For more information, call (951) 708-1355. Monies raised through their fundraisers go back into the community to help other nonprofits.
