Dave and his wife, Marilee (also a member of the Rotary Club of Fallbrook), have traveled on two occasions to South Africa to establish relationships with Rotarians there and work together on relief projects for AIDS orphans in the Zulu tribe. Dave participated in a Polio National Immunization Day in India. It was a “Good bye Polio, Thanks Rotary” bumper sticker and Rotary’s pledge to eradicate polio that attracted Dave to Rotary – his mother was a polio survivor.
