Special Events

On December 8, more than 20 Rotarians arrived at the Elks Club in Redlands to serve dinner, distribute gifts, and provide entertainment to nearly 130 members of the Purple Turtles, a group of our community's developmentally disabled adults. Chairman Stan Weisser organizes the event every year, which has been an annual tradition in the club for nearly twenty years. "This is one of our club's favorite community service projects because we get to interact personally with the Purple Turtles, who look forward to this event every December," stated Weisser. "We also provide music, dancing, and a special show by the Redlands YMCA Circus. It was amazing."
