Santa Clarita Rotary Club Veteran's Project - Showing Our Fallen Heroes and Families That We Care

My Rotary Club, located in Santa Clarita, California, does great work in our community. Recently they honored the 8 young men who have given their lives for our country during the past three years. Watching the moving ceremony and dedication made me think about how fortunate I am to be a part of this caring community, as well as a member of the Rotary Club.

We always allow our guests to speak, and having former military is quite an honor. One of the speakers was a former member of the United States Air Force, and he described our community as an island. This brought some laughter, because Santa Clarita is located in the middle of the desert. He went on to explain that what he meant was that we were unlike other cities and towns in California in that we are so concerned with the families of these fallen heroes, and with helping the young men and women who are returning from their time overseas in the armed forces.

I also found out that we are one of the only states within the United States that does not offer a license plate to honor our soldiers. That would be a great thing if we could purchase that to start a fund to help these brave warriors and their families.

Our Rotary Club has a garden where we now have marble tiles with the names of those who have died serving their country. This is a great honor and it is important for us to remember that these people have made the ultimate sacrifice to uphold the values we all share.

Connie Ragen Green has been a member of the Rotary Club of Santa Clarita since 2006. Find out more about this club by visiting http://www.AdventuresoftheSCVRotaryBell.com, and find a club near you by going to http://Rotary.org.

Road Blaster is based on the original arcade game, with simple controls to
master. So how could mobile possibly gain more attention than console.
The qualifier is that the work needs to be directed toward receipt of your goal.

But in case you are living in the southern California and looking for
a repair or plumbing company then you will be glad to know that there are many good plumping companies
in Temecula. There are many plumbing contractors and companies out there and it is
important to find a provider who is experienced and willing to
perform the work at an acceptable price and to a
proper standard. These things get rid of contaminants and
foul smell from your drinking water. You can define your location as
broad as a large city such as New Jersey or you can enter your precise address.
I had to call my contractor since he guaranteed the work. For a job in one's home a plumber who is
trained and experienced in this area should be contacted.
Word of mouth advertising is one way to find a fair price from plumbers.
One good example of this is to find plumbers in Fairfax.
