Benoit’s Goals for 2013 Focus of Tuesday’s Indio Rotary Lunch
INDIO – New chairman of the Riverside County Board of Supervisors and longtime Rotarian Supervisor John J. Benoit will share his goals for 2013 with the Indio Rotary Club at their lunch 11:45 a.m. Tuesday at the Fantasy Springs Convention Center in Indio, 84-245 Indio Springs Pkwy.
“This year in Riverside County, we have big opportunities in the areas of health care, economic development, clean air projects and the Salton Sea,” said Supervisor John J. Benoit. “I look forward to providing an update about the exciting happenings in county government.”
As president of the Indio Rotary Club in 1994, Benoit and his wife, Sheryl, then a Desert Sands school district employee, helped found the valley-wide Rotary Math Field Day, an annual tradition in which several hundred middle school students compete in mathematical challenges. School districts in the Coachella Valley had been forced to discontinue participation in a similar event held annually in Riverside due to the cost of transportation. The club is coming up on its 19th year of sponsoring Rotary Math Field Day.
Guests are welcome to attend Tuesday’s lunch, which costs $16 per person. Seating is limited so reservations are appreciated. For more information about the Rotary Club of Indio or to RSVP, please contact club secretary Sue Steding at 760-485-1843.
