The rein of King George returns! Our meeting on October 20th was led by Past President and King George Collins!
And we had speaker Guido Hajenius!  
King George greeted him at the door. Rotarians were moved by Guido's presentation about what we can do to fight the exploitation and enslavement of children in LA County.
