Members of our Global Kalinga E-Rotary Club visited the Orangewood Childrens Foundation center in Santa Ana, CA. Our club donated food for and served lunch to the children and their young parents.
After lunch, Santa appeared and passed out gifts, donated by our club, to those from young babies to the most seniored young at heart. Sadly, our own president missed out on Santa's visit. Not sure why. He must have had some pressing issue to miss out on the fun and entertainment.
As members of Global Kalinga e-Rotary, we left happy and grateful that we could bring some joy to these children.

The 13th Annual Locomotion Goal Ball Tournament (Soccer for Blind & Visually Impaired athletes) was a success with 17 Teams participating from Australia, Canada, Mexico and the U.S.A. California had 3 teams, also Arizona, Colorado, New York, Texas and Utah.
Men and women participated with many groups volunteering their services including our own Global Kalinga e-Rotary Club. And of course, families and friends also volunteered. The City of Bell and Bell High School were our hosts.

How appropriate it was for the participants to play in Bell--don't you think?
