Rotary Parade of Homes

By Linda Shiflett, San Carlos

San Carlos Rotary (Club Rotario de San Carlos) will hold its annual “Rotary Parade of Homes” on Tuesday, February 10, 2009. The tour will begin at 1 p.m. at the San Carlos Country Club parking lot. The parade of homes is the major fund-raising event of the San Carlos Rotary. Each year six homes in the San Carlos area are visited. They are selected to give the visitor a unique opportunity to see a wide range of the homes available in San Carlos. Visitors on the tour will be treated to a variety of architectures, furnishings and vistas.

Transportation will be provided and the tour ends with a margarita party at the San Carlos Country Club Palapa followed by a raffle. The raffle will include items donated by local merchants for massages, dinners, sporting activities, gifts for the home, art objects, etc. The cost for the tour will be 200 pesos and includes one raffle ticket. Tickets may be obtained from any Rotarian or can be purchased from 9 a.m. until noon at Banamex. All proceeds from the Parade of Homes goes to the education of students in the San Carlos area.

The San Carlos Rotary Club is an English-speaking Rotary Club whose members are full or part-time residents of San Carlos including Mexican, American and Canadian citizens. Currently, there are about 60 members. Many of their most active members are visiting Rotarians that participate in the club’s activities.
