Out & About: Community Calendar Of Events & Activities

OK, guys! Remember, Friday is Valentine's Day. You know the routine: Flowers and sweets would be nice; even nicer would be dinner and dancing.

Sunset Rotary has all the bases covered with "An Affair of the Heart" with dinners, dancing, photos and your own CD. Come and enjoy the fun and support the Polio Eradication Campaign. Sunset Rotary, with new president Ken Hollman at the helm, knows how to have fun.

Now that I mentioned Hollman, I can thank another organization he is involved with, the Porsche Club of Sierra Nevada. I recently attended its first meeting of the year at B'sghetti's and accepted money for children in need. Club president Paul Giannini and its 180 members are supporting a summer scholarship program to will help students who cannot afford to attend 4-H Camp. Listed below is another way you can help the 4-H program.

Also do not forget "An Evening by the Bay" presented by Noon Rotary. You can meet football legend Ronnie Lott and enjoy the essence of San Francisco cuisine. Limited space is available so call early for tickets.

If you cannot find Valentine's See's Candy, check with the Carson Senior Citizens Center. It has some to sell, and it helps a great organization, Call at 883-7887.
