In the heart of the wine country, we have a very active club and we couldn’t be more proud to celebrate our club’s 51st year in Rotary! We have a diverse group of members with a variety of backgrounds who all share one goal: have fun and change the lives of those around us. I am honored to serve as the club’s 51st President and I am excited about the upcoming year!
Santa Rosa West Rotary is the “Go to Club – Getting Things Done while having Fun” in our District.
We have 50 years of impactful experience in making a significant difference in our community and serving the unique needs of the West side of Santa Rosa. We have been awarded “Outstanding Club” recognition from our District the last two years!!
Our membership represents the diversity of our community, and individually and collectively we have an on-going commitment and success in improving the lives of those we serve. To that end we provide college and technical scholarships to in-need and excelling students, and through SAY (Social Advocates for Youth) we provide mentoring and job-shadowing opportunities. We built and continue to support the MultiCultural Development Center, a pre-school for low income families, and we’re proud to have their current and past Executive Directors as active members.
Music and the Arts are diminishing in our school systems, so we ensure that our youth have access to these opportunities. This is seen in our on-going support of the Dulcimer project at the Boy’s and Girls Club, Youth Symphony and Sixth Street Playhouse.
On an international level, we are committed to and have provided measurable funding to clean water projects, youth and adult education, as well as disaster relief for major emergencies. Rotary International is taking the lead on Ending Polio world-wide and we significantly partner in this effort.
Additionally, we sponsor both an Interact and Rotaract Club, grooming teens and young adults for a life of service. One of our in-coming Presidents is a past Rotaract member – carrying on the tradition.
The Rotary Club of Santa Rosa West is a very unique opportunity for individuals who want to make a difference in a dynamic, friendly and vibrant atmosphere. Please contact us to learn more and join us for a luncheon meeting.
