60th Anniversary Happy Hour

The Globe

Happy Hour at the Globe Cafe in Coral Gables

The Brickell Club did an international project with a Rotary Club in Mexico creating a special bond between the two clubs…

The Rotary Club Tlalnepantla from Mexico celebrated its 60th anniversary by taking a cruise in Miami! They came a day early to get a chance to meet members from the Brickell Club other rotarians in the area. This truly reminds us that Rotary is an international organization.

We met for happy hour in Coral Gables at The Globe on November 12

Rotary Brickell Club contributing to education

Over the past 12 months the club sponsored two special projects focused on education (one locally in Miami and another in Mexico City). Each project provided computers to organizations helping people in need.

  • Locally in Overtown Miami, the Brickell Club supplied the computers for the training room in the Lotus House Shelter.
  • Internationally in the outskirts of Mexico City, the Club provided computers and projectors for the classrooms in a school that was built by a local Rotary Club.

Both projects foster computer literacy which is increasingly important to communicate, learn, and ultimately get better paying jobs.

These projects were possible thanks to funds raised by the Brickell Club, but also thanks to grants provided by rotary district 6990 and the rotary club of Coral Gables.

Marine Reserves

Dr. Martin Arostegui presented to the Rotary Club of Miami Brickell this past Tuesday January 7. His interesting presentation was titled: Are Marine Reserves a Good Idea?

Decades ago coastal communities around the world started noticing a decline in their fish populations. As the trend worsened considerable scientific research was carried out to learn about the causes and bring about possible solutions. Many factors have been identified; most importantly, environmental degradation, water pollution, climate change and overfishing. In order to bring about positive change, all must be addressed.

Marine Reserves have been established all over the world to combat overfishing and to enhance the coastal marine environment. By definition, Marine Reserves are zones where all animals and plants have permanent protection and therefore cannot be removed. Marine Reserves have been proven scientifically to protect the coastal environment and at the same time enhance fisheries outside their borders.
