HELPING UKRAINE
As global citizens and members of Rotary, we are deeply saddened by the suffering of individuals in Ukraine, brought on by the military aggression of Vladimir Putin. Many organizations are working on our behalf to support those in need of care. Here are two opportunities within Rotary to donate to support this care and relief:
We enjoyed a gorgeous afternoon at the Olivina, nestled in the heart of Sycamore Grove, tasting olive oil, socializing and meeting prospective Rotarians!
The Olivina is open the third Sunday of each month for tastings. Thanks to Charles Crohare for inviting us to be part of the event!
Everyone is invited to plant trees on Saturday morning, March 12. We are partnering with the City of Livermore and the California Urban Forests Council to plant 65 trees as part of the AMPLIFYING THE URBAN FOREST initiative.
 
Bring your shovel and your friends to Marlin Pound Park, 2010 Bluebell Drive, Livermore at 8:00 on Saturday, March 12. 
 
The City of Livermore has pre-dug the holes! Join the fun as we work with the West Coast Arborists to beautify our city.
 
First 60 who show up receive free t-shirts!
 
We are all invited to join in this Area 4 Community Service project that supports Sleep in Heavenly Peace, a nonprofit organization that provides beds for children in need. On Saturday, March 19th, we have the opportunity to build bunkbeds.
 
We are invited to join with Inner Wheel Livermore to support their fundraising efforts so that children can get the myoelectric limbs they need. 
 
If you didn't have a chance to purchase raffle tickets for their awesome basket, you can donate online to support this important cause.
We are proud to join with our fellow Livermore Rotarians and the Rotarian Foundation of Livermore to purchase and deliver hardcover children’s literature to each 3rd and 4th grade student in the Livermore Valley Joint Unified School District! After months of collaboration by local teachers, librarians, administrators, and Rotarians, we have selected 3 titles at each grade level from which students can select their favorite book. We will provide a gift of reading to students this spring!
 
 
Throughout Ukraine's history, the flower has been used as a symbol of peace. In June 1996, to celebrate Ukraine giving up nuclear weapons, U.S., Russian and Ukrainian defense ministers planted sunflowers in a ceremony at southern Ukraine's Pervomaysk missile base.
