Guest Speaker: Chris Miller | Corona, CA

Our speaker on Feb. 13th was none other than fellow Rotarian Chris Miller. Chris is a long time Rotary member and his topic was leaving your legacy. Chris’ family moved to Corona when he was very young. His parents purchased Thomas Miller Mortuary, the longest operating business in the city of Corona. This business began in 1891! His parents began to get involved with volunteering. His father joined the Lions Club and his mom joined the Soroptomist. Chris states he acquired his work ethic from his parents. He also says that his parents were/are excellent examples of what it means to give. When Chris joined Rotary at the ripe old age of 25, he says he used to bring his baby daughter to meetings while his wife went to work. He says he has been blessed with a very successful business and enjoys giving back to the community. Rotarians all want to give back, that’s why we joined the club! Thank you Chris for your many years of caring giving!

Guest Speaker: Rudy & Karyn Westerville | Corona, CA

On Jan. 30th our guest speakers were Rudy and Karyn Westerville. They came to speak about Rotary World Peace Conference which will take place on Jan. 17-18 2020 at the Ontario Convention Center. There are 6 local Rotary districts, including ours, that put this conference together. Experts are brought in to discuss various problems that are occurring at the local level. They seek solutions to these problems. After the last Peace Conference, a human trafficking network was shut down. Launch Detroit and Atlanta started to help revive those cities. Micro loans were made available to help new entrepreneurs. They also try to find solutions to cyber bullying, domestic violence, gun violence and homelessness.   Also to help find solutions to stop illiteracy, to curb alcohol and drug abuse. At the conference attending Rotarians are taught to find solutions to all of these issues. This convention is focused on Peace and in seeking solutions to all these worldwide problems.  This convention will be open to the public, you do not need to be a Rotarian to attend. The Solutions to Peace Foundation donated $35k to the Paradise Rotary Club to assist the victims of the Paradise Fire.  This was a very interesting and informative topic. Our thanks to fellow Rotarians, the Westervilles.
