Riseley to the Challenge

When 2017-2018 Rotary International President Ian Riseley announced the Presidential Theme for this year of service, he placed special emphasis on the care of our environment, noting the effect that environmental degradation and global climate change have on the world’s most vulnerable populations.

President Risely issued a challenge that each Rotary club could embrace as their own: to plant as many trees as they have as members of their Rotary club.

Recently, Orange Plaza Rotary completed that challenge, planting several trees on the campus of El Modena High School in Orange.  Previously, the club had planted trees at Fletcher Elementary School, providing welcome shade to students there.

With 14 trees now growing in the California sun, we are proud that our efforts will benefit students for years1
