On 1/28/21 We welcomed Stephanie Cuevas, Senior Government Affairs Representative and Director Rob Kastherman of the Water Replenishment District. The Water Replenishment District of Southern California (WRD) is the largest groundwater agency in the State of California, managing and protecting local groundwater resources for over four million residents. WRD's service area covers a 420-square-mile region of southern Los Angeles County, the most populated county in the United States. The 43 cities in the service area, including a portion of the City of Los Angeles, use about 250,000 acre-feet (82 billion gallons) of groundwater annually which accounts for approximately half of the region's water supply. WRD ensures that a reliable supply of high quality groundwater is available through the use of recycled water and storm water capture. WRD is responsible for monitoring and testing groundwater throughout the region.
On 1/21 we welcomed El Segundo Mayor Drew Boyles to our club for an update on our city. He discussed many different projects including the development of Top Golf, LAX expansion, pandemic news, real estate projects, and went over a variety of issues that affect our community. We love and appreciate our mayor, who also happens to be Val's son! Great job Mayor Boyles!
 
On 1/14/21 we heard from Owen's sister in law Jessica Dean from the Sierra Club.

This week our club had a special visit via zoom from the El Segundo High School Robotics team, "P.O.T.A.T.O.E.S." as they call themselves. This stands for People Of Tomorrow Applying Their Outstanding Engineering Skills. Every year they build robots and compete in several competitions sponsored by local industries, high profile engineering companies and government agencies. Their aim is to learn and perfect skills of the engineering trades as a means to help develop careers and have some fun. Our Rotary club donated $500 to help fund their activities and we wish them the best as they move into this year's competitive season!
