Welcome to the Rotary Club of Boca Raton Sunset
We are a small friendly dinner club with strong Rotary Foundation support.  Our membership includes three past district governors and special enthusiasm for youth and literacy service.  We distribute dictionaries to six local elementary schools, bring Josh the Otter with a swim safety program to three pre-K schools, and honor a Rotary Scholar each month for the high school hosting our Interact club. 
 
Are you an established professional who wants to make positive changes in your community and the world? Our club members are dedicated people who share a passion for community service and friendship. Becoming a Rotarian connects you with a diverse group who share your drive to give back.

President Mathieu Daquin will speak at our next meeting August 29, 2016. Mathieu is also the president of INTERNATIONAL CENTER 4 YOUTH SERVICES, INC.  We expect Mathieu will talk about his experience when participating in a Rotary Group Study Exchange (GSE) sponsored by Rotary Wellington.
 
PDG Charlie Bromberg arranged for Mathieu to tell his GSE story, saying "we take different roads to Rotary membership.  Some join because a friend invites us to attend a meeting, some join for business reasons, some become members because they experienced the work of Rotary first hand.  Our President Mathieu is among those who experienced Rotary and that experience kindled a fire within him to become a Rotarian."
 
GSE is a program of unique vocational exchange sponsored by the Rotary Foundation and coordinated by Rotary Districts.  A GSE team is usually comprised of a Rotarian team leader and four non-Rotarian members.  Paired Districts exchange teams for between 4 to 6 weeks to experience vocations in each others cultural settings, which hopefully leads toward international peace through better understanding.  Mathieu was a member of a GSE team that went to France.
 

 
 
Carl is a Rotarian in the Rotary Club of Wellington and the Executive VP & Chief Operating Officer of SynaBee Inc., an innovative and revolutionary patent-pending enterprise CRM/Social Media platform that unites Social Networking and m-Commerce (B2C mobile commerce). This platform enables an enterprise Host (hotels, universities, major sporting arenas, destination theme parks and other large venues) to communicate directly with their consumers to push real-time, preference-based 1-to-1 rewards and incentives that provides real incremental revenue to the Host and enhances the consumer experience increasing loyalty and affinity for the Host.
 
He shared an example of how his technology uses information to track guest data at hotels who receive complimentary drinks or a round of golf. This info is then stored so that a future venue that same guest goes to will know that individual received a complimentary drink or round of golf somewhere, which gives businesses viable information about its customers. According to Carl, his technology values customer privacy and does not store personal data.  

 

Last but not least, Carl shared his involvement with the Rotary Club of Wellington. We heard about two projects that club has participated in: a solar project for a water well and project for a school in Haiti and the City of Wellington's donation of 14.8 acres of wetland for the Wellington Rotary Peace Park.  PDG Steve Laine proposed the idea of doing a social event with the Rotary Club of Wellington at a future date and possibly at the Wellington Rotary Peace Park.  We look forward to that in the future!

 
 
 
President Elect Lee Barnard read something right off his phone for the Rotary Minute of the evening. It described the very first Rotary meeting and the club was named Rotary because the meetings would rotate between member locations.
 

 
Paul Harris Fellow Aiden Lustig was guest of his grandfather PDG Phil Lustig at August 22, 2016 meeting. We hope you found our speaker interesting and will join us again Aiden.
