Save a life with an AED machine!

AED training held at the Encinitas Community Resource Center (CRC)  http://crcncc.org/ (located at 650 2nd St, Encinitas, CA 92024) for their staff. 
Our Rotarians Donna-Marie and Cecile Abel attended. Encinitas Coastal Rotary club is purchasing an AED machine for the CRC to have in their facility. They have a constant stream of families, elders and young mothers coming through their doors to receive help, from food, shelter, to counseling… they did not have an AED and had a person have a heart attack while visiting their food pantry last year (the person survived thanks to the quick action of a staff member).

Rotarian Kelly Mellos is a TEDx Speaker

Posted by CM

“Art breaks down barriers, teaches us to celebrate both our differences and similarities, makes us comfortable with ambiguity, teaches us to take risks and allows us to communicate in a universal human language, where words often fail,” Mellos said in the release.

Mellos’ journey began with her involvement with the Hands of Peace organization, an interfaith organization that brings young people together from Palestine, Israel and America and empowers them to raise their voices as leaders of change. Through the power of dialogue, these teens partner in regular workshops to pursue peace, equality, freedom and justice.

“I first became aware of Hands of Peace when Scott Silk, San Diego Site Director of Hands of Peace, spoke at the Encinitas Coastal Rotary Club four years ago.” Mellos explained. “I immediately decided to get involved in this peace process and offered to conduct an art workshop for the young attendees.”

Proud of our active participation in the Hands of Peace Program

 At Encinitas Coastal rotary Club, we have members that want to make a difference! 
A strong program changing the lives of Palestinian and Jewish teeangers was hosted in San Diego. Our club efforts in supporting this worthy cause, was led by International Club Chair - Kelly Mellos together with Nick Mellos and Peace Chair Dennis Reese!
 85 lives were changed across Chicago and San Diego this summer and we are happy to report that all Hands have arrived home to Israel/Palestine. As always, we were so impressed with the courage, dedication and honesty that our participants displayed during this process.
We have successfully concluded another summer program and want to thank all of our supporters, participants, host families, staff, and volunteers who make this program run year after year.
