“We are very grateful to the Montebello
Rotary Club for their support and providing for us with the funds needed for
this project,” said Gomez.
This year the club, which has been granting
mini-grants for the past 11 years, received several applications. Rotary
Vocational Service director Phyllis Murakawa met with school personnel to
discuss the need and benefit of each application.
Mini-grants are awarded for any activity or

and offers a long term benefit to the school. There must be limited or no
other funds available from the school district or other sources.
