At our meeting on October 8, Jasmine Owens talked with us about SOME (www.some.org) and shared information about its job training programs. We also had Rotarian visitors from the Sammammish, Washington Rotary Club and heard about their exciting Halloween fundraiser -- Nightmare at Beaver Lake -- a family fun event starting Oct. 13th through 31st. 
 
The Rotary Club of Capitol Hill welcomed two new Rotary Global Grant Scholars, Heloise Wiart (France) and Kana Matsuno (Japan), to its circle. The club is the host to these Georgetown graduate school scholars for the next two years. Both are concentrating their advanced degrees connected to Rotary's area of focus -- Heloise is pursuing a Georgetown degree in security studies program; Kana in foreign service.
 
During the breakfast session, both scholars shared their experience with Rotary and their interests in their fields of choice. The club looks forward to including Heloise and Kana in community activities and supporting their development in Washington.
 
The Rotary Club of Capitol Hill joined other volunteers to kick off this past summer in support of "Girls on the Run", a volunteer organization that inspires girls, from 3rd to 8th grade, to be joyful, healthy and confident using a fun, experience-based curriculum which creatively integrates running. The June run in downtown D.C. brought hundreds of girls together with their sponsors to complete a 5K race. A lot of excitement, exercise and fun were had!
