Dominique Alvarez is the president of the Marymount California University Rotaract Club. She reviewed her Club’s activities and service projects over the last year. (Dave Tomblin of the LA5 Rotary Club is the faculty advisor.) The Marymount Club has been very active with multiple service projects. District 5280 Rotaractors are selling T-shirts for $20 to honor Rotaract’s 50th Anniversary.


They attended the Big West Rotaract Conference at CSU Long Beach in October. It is a multi-District organization founded in 2015 and registered with RI, to collaborate projects and leadership training for Rotaractors in Districts across the US West Coast including Alaska.

Their Club helped with the District 5280 Youth Conference in Hawthorne in October, helping Interactors become better leaders and public speakers, and developing skills to make their Clubs stronger.

Los Angeles Rotaractors from Marymount, UCLA, USC, San Fernando Valley, and Angel City Clubs participated in a District-wide community service project in November at the Downtown Women’s Center. It provides services for homeless women including promoting safe housing, health care and community support services. The Rotaractors hope to expand future participation in District-level service projects, including Interactors.

They are participating in Fundraising for the District St Patrick’s Day 5K Color Run To End Polio on Saturday, March 17, at Griffith Park. (Participants will have a “non-toxic” multi-colored powder tossed on them during the run, so they will finish looking tie-dyed!)

Another Club project, with Interactors, will provide water-pasteurization indicators to verify safe water, to Migori, Kenya, on February 18.
