LAKE ELSINORE – Jamie Schramm was installed as president of the Rotary Club of Lake Elsinore for the 2020-2021 year. The service club provides over 21 local programs throughout the Lake Elsinore area and participates in four international programs.

After being very active in Rotary for previous years, Schramm said he was excited to take on the role of president for the upcoming year.

“This is a huge honor to lead the club. My job is not just preparing meeting agendas and making decisions for the club. Our club is one of the most active and well-recognized clubs throughout the worldwide Rotary network,” Schramm said. “Vocational and local school support is one of our main focuses. We mentor high school students with Interact Clubs, send seventh graders and high school juniors to leadership camps called PRYDE and RYLA, we assist in sponsoring high school athletic physicals, we honor three teachers every month at our a.m. meetings, and we provide vocational job shadow programs. Our members are very passionate about providing and enhancing youth programs and services in the community.”

During Schramm’s year as president, he said he plans to focus on the youth programs, as well as focus on older adult needs within the community.

Schramm became a Rotarian in 2017, while a business owner in Lake Elsinore. He is on the board of directors of Julie Lee Performing Arts Academy School, serves as an ambassador for the Chamber of Commerce Lake Elsinore and helps with many charitable organizations in the area. Additionally, Schramm is the founder of Care Musical and Art Exchange Inc., a nonprofit, and helps to fund music and fine arts programs for children from the ages of 8-18. As an accomplished musician, he is very passionate about this cause and takes great pride in his work within the program.

In addition to the local programs and services, the Rotary Club of Lake Elsinore sponsors international programs in Mexico, including medical clinics that provide surgery for cleft palates, a vision clinic and an orphanage.

The Rotary Club of Lake Elsinore meets virtually on the first and third Wednesday of each month. For more information, contact Jamie.lerotary@gmail.com.
