The local Rotary Club has advised us that they are not able to host the 4th of July event due to a shortage of available Rotary members to host the event this year. The Rotary hopes with more member support next year and community volunteers they will once again be able to host this Rotary fundraising event in Coto in 2018.
This is the Rotary del Sol – Coto de Caza/Rancho Santa Margarita Rotary Club’ s Facebook announcement posted June 28th;
Dear Coto Citizens – Unfortunately our Club will not be putting on our annual 4th of July parade and country fair. Due to a variety of circumstances including vacations, declining membership and timing, we just don’t have the resources to bring it together this year. Our club demographics have shifted to where the vast majority of our members are RSM residents, and we’ve begun focusing our efforts on projects in that area, spreading ourselves more thin than before.
With additional help and support from the community and local businesses, we look forward to bringing the tradition back next year and making it better than ever. We’re sorry again, and wish everyone in the community a very happy 4th of July.
