Rotary Lucky Ducks are Ready to Swim!


Culver City Rotary Lucky Ducky Race will be at the Culver-Palms YMCA pool on May 21. This year the swim will benefit Upward Bound House. Their mission is to eliminate homelessness among families with children by providing housing and supportive services. Helping to find stability and success, they have assistance in Santa Monica, Culver City, Compton, and South Los Angeles.

We have rubber ducks ready to swim! For the first time, Culver City Rotary is inviting service clubs, youth groups and more to consider being a Partner (team) with the Lucky Ducky Race. Partners earn 1/2 of what they raise. The other 1/2 goes to Upward Bound House. Each Partner will have a website page link for information about their group, photos, and logos. The Culver City Rotary Community Foundation will distribute all the monies raised from the Lucky Ducky.

"Every time we talk about the Lucky Ducky Swim people smile," comments Rotarian Carmela Raack. "It is a pleasure to see people enjoy such a fun and happy activity."

The Culver City Rotary Club and the Culver City Rotary Community Foundation support needs of the community especially providing programs for the youth in Culver City. Rotary contributes to needed and meaningful international service projects.

We take action as community volunteers. We reach out to neighbors in need. We save lives through health programs and polio eradication. Around the world and around the corner, the men and women of Rotary get involved in their communities, connect with other professionals, and share their time and experience with members, associates, and young people. Help us grow and remain a driving force for community giving.

"Being part of Rotary means opportunities to give back to the community is ways large and small," says Jim Shanman, Culver City Rotary. "As Youth Chair I interact with students in Culver City helping them discover and explore the meaning of community work and service."

Culver City Rotary Club meets the first and third Wednesday of the month via Zoom. All who are interested in joining the conversation or becoming a member are welcome to attend.
