Luncheon for the League

The Assistance League of Rancho San Dieguito (ALRSD) recently held its June luncheon and installation of new officers at the Morgan Run County Club. The highlight of the afternoon was the honorary passing of the gavel from the outgoing President Roberta Waterman to Lois Green, who will be taking over the position and beginning her duties this month. In honor of the work she did as president, Roberta was recognized for her leadership skills and community service by the office of State Senator Patricia Bates from the 36th Senatorial District. Donna Cleary, a representative of the Senator’s office, presented Roberta with a plaque and read a California State Resolution.

This luncheon was the first step for the new ALRSD members, who will become busy in the upcoming months with the duties that come with their positions. In late August, ALRSD collaborated with six other Assistant League chapters to provide back-to-school clothing and school supplies for 700 children residing in Camp Pendleton. On projects that are occurring later in the fall, ALRSD member Katie Fish shared, “This fall, Operation School Bell, our Chapter’s signature philanthropic program, will provide over 900 eligible north county school children with new back-to-school clothes and shoes, funded by proceeds from our Encinitas Thrift Shop.”

The ALRSD is an all-volunteer nonprofit organization that serves various North County communities. They strive to make a positive difference in the lives of children and adults affected by trauma, violence, and poverty. For more information visit www.alrsd.org.
