The Westmont Rotary Club would like to thank everyone who supported them by buying Split the Pot tickets at the Westmont Street Fair this summer. With your help they raised $4100 for their scholarship grants, since 2014, through the Split the Pot raffle. Each May they have been able to grant $10,000 in scholarships to Westmont high school seniors.

Paula Calderon from Antofagasta, Chili is the new Rotary International Exchange student. She will be attending Westmont High School.

 Irv Kaplan has taken the helm as the President of the Westmont Rotary Club. He has served on many Rotary District and International committees and served as the 6450 District Governor 1988-1989. Immediate Past President Elaine Carmichael describes the position of President of the Westmont Rotary Club as being rewarding in many ways and helping to build friendships helping others.
