Our Club & Community
  Los Barriles is a small Mexican town on the Baja peninsula and Sea of Cortes 70 miles north of Cabo San Lucas. The population fluctuates with the seasons and is comprised of about two-thirds local Mexicans and one third foreign residents from the USA, Canada and Europe. Our beautiful community is known around the world for its safety and tranquility, big game fishing, boatingkite boarding and wind surfing, temperate climate, and the friendliest people you have ever met. Come visit us, for a day, a month, or a lifetime.
In response to the threat of COVID-19, the coronavirus, Club Rotario Los Barriles is suspending all meetings, socials, and other gathers of any kind. We will continue to do our best to support and secure our community as we face this challenged together.

In a country where revolutions are celebrated with lots of dancing and fireworks, a quieter revolution slipped by last week with very little notice. The grand opening of our newly refurbished Library and new Tech Center happened Friday, August 30th, attended by happy teachers and students, including the entire Third Grade. But not much dancing, and no fireworks, just new doors opening quietly to the whole world for all of our students.
Our Rotary was initially asked to help refurbish the library, and then to move the tech center, and the two projects naturally merged. The result was a space for both research and communications unlike any available before. And like any successful revolution, it couldn’t be done by just one. Making the center a reality required every single one of all who volunteered their time and talents. Without Jean’e Harkleroad’s endless energy and perseverance the project would have stalled. Without Roy Ice and FiberTech, Andrew Tuck and EarthBlock, Luis and PK Builders, many school staff, a generous donation from the San Juan Capistrano Rotary Club, and of course, our always helping friend Memo (Guillermo Cosio Cota). Thank you, one and all. The world just became more accessible to our children.
En un país donde las revoluciones se celebran con bailes y fuegos artificiales, una revolución más silenciosa pasó apenas notándose. La inauguración de nuestra Biblioteca, recientemente re-amueblada y Centro de Tecnología fue este Viernes, 30 de Agosto, al cual asistieron profesores y estudiantes felices, incluso todo el 3er grado estuvo ahí. Sin embargo, no hubo mucho baile ni fuegos artificiales, sólo las nuevas puertas, abriéndose tranquilamente para ofrecerles el mundo a nuestros estudiantes.
Nuestro Club fue inicialmente invitado a ayudar a restaurar la Biblioteca, y después a mover el Centro de Tecnología, y así fue como los dos proyectos emergieron naturalmente. Resultando en un espacio donde ambos, la búsqueda y las comunicaciones se pudieran ofrecer como nunca antes había sido posible.  Como cualquier revolución exitosa, no podría haberse hecho por una sola persona. Hacer el centro una realidad, requirió la ayuda de cada uno de los voluntarios, su tiempo y sus talentos. Sin la energía interminable y perseverancia de Jean’e Harkleroa, el proyecto se hubiera estancado. Al igual que sin Roy Ice y FiberTech, Andrew Tuck y EarthBlock, Luis y PK Builders, el staff de la escuela, la donación generosa de San Juan Capistrano Rotary Club y nuestro siempre ayudando amigo Memo (Guillermo Cosio Cota). Gracias, todos y cada uno. El mundo se volvió más accesible para nuestros hijos.

After the three meetings with the club (one with the club in entirety, one with boards from current and next year, and one open to the entire club), the following lists of projects are those that have been identified and considered for our three to five-year vision.  We will continue to assess the needs / seek the areas where we can “…meet the health and wellbeing needs of the East Cape community with a focus on the youth…”.  The projects listed below are those identified within these meetings on how we can help our community within the 3 pillars that we have identified:  Education, Healthcare, and Fitness. Thank you to all who worked so hard on this map for our future.

Bringing Healthy Water to The East Cape

Today the team visited two rural areas on the East Cape assessed for clean water systems:
Team Club Rotario Members Chris Geyer, Mike Koehn, Herardo Rodrigues,
Martine Tamya and Catherine Murphy. In-community contact, Fatima Mendoza - 624 22 93629
The first distribution was in the rural foothills of the Sierra Laguna mountain range about 15 kilometers west of Santiago. The rural community is called Manzanitas.
Rural families and ranchers from the surrounding towns of Santiago and Panama assembled to receive individual systems.  We trained and implemented 32 filters with the in-community leader, Fatima Mendoza, who will provide oversight and monitoring for these systems.
The second distribution was also in the rural foothills of the Sierra Laguna southwest of Manzanitas a community called Aguas Calientes. This community had also been assessed and rural ranchers and community members assembled. We trained and implemented 32 individual systems with in-community leader Fatima Mendoza who will provide oversight and monitoring for these systems.

FIRST – The development of acquaintance as an opportunity for service;
SECOND – High ethical standards in business and professions, the recognition of the worthiness of all useful occupations, and the dignifying of each Rotarian’s occupation as an opportunity to serve society;
THIRD – The application of the ideal of service in each Rotarian’s personal, business, and community life;
FOURTH – The advancement of international understanding, goodwill and peace through a world fellowship of business and professional persons united in the ideal of service.
The Four-Way Test
