Hernando Valenzuela of HV Designs will be vice president while former president Robert Beans of Bay Plumbing will serve as treasurer.

Coral Gables Rotarian Katarina Jimenez, who- recently returned from a two-month mission trip to Kenya living with the Maasai, addressed her Rotary Club, many of whose members help her raise funds for the supplies sent to support the many projects she tackled, including availability of clean water, schools, school items and more. Her talk covered the mission, its challenges and outcomes.
At that same meeting, Coral Gables Rotary Club past president Yolanda Woodbridge received recognition for 22 years of perfect attendance. Congratulations, Yoli.
Non profits are encouraged to sign up for the 5K Park Fest to take place on Oct. 1, 11 a.m.-6 p.m., at the Historic Virginia Beach Park on Virginia Key.
Simply sign up your nonprofit and ask people to register to participate on your team or make a donation online. Half of the registration dollars collected from your team will go back to your charity. It is a great no-risk way to support charitable programs. This is not just a walk but a day of entertainment with live music, activities for children, food concessions, vendor booths, and more — all next to a lovely beach that provides a setting for a spectacular day of fun.
