When one lives in a city as breathtakingly beautiful and unique as Santa Monica, inevitably that city will be shared with visitors.

April 2, 2014 -- To realize their “Legacy of Service” to the Santa Monica Community, volunteers from the Santa Monica Rotary Club will gather at Saint Anne's School on April 5 for the second annual Rotary Day of Service.
Members of the service-minded organization are asked to bring gardening gloves, garden tools, paint, brush and rollers to help spruce up Saint Anne's school.
“The idea is to develop an annual hands-on project that meets a real world need in Santa Monica, as well as raise the visibility of the work of the Rotary Club of Santa Monica, and establish a Santa Monica "Legacy of Service,” said Tom Woods, event organizer and Rotarian.
Saint Anne's School was founded in 1908 by the Sisters of the Holy Names of Jesus and Mary to serve the children of migrant farm workers who tended to the bean fields and orange groves that were commonplace in West LA.
A relatively small school with less than 200 students, St. Anne's still caters to working class families, 86 percent of them Latino, who work for local Santa Monica businesses.
On February 1, 1922 the Santa Monica Rotary Club was officially chartered as Rotary Club number 1086.
