ROTARY CLUB OF WOODLAND
Making a difference in the lives of people
in our community and around the world.
Thank you for visiting the Rotary Club of Woodland website, chartered in 1926.
Join us and the over 1.2 million Rotarians worldwide in helping to improve our communities. Our club members contribute time to improve Woodland in many ways including holding an annual Senior Citizens BBQ, volunteering for Meals on Wheels, helping with the annual FFA auction, mentoring the Woodland High School Interact Club, sponsoring young leaders to the Camp Royal Leadership Camp and the Camp Venture Entrepreneurship Camp, and contributing to the Woodland KIDS Read program. Every year we contribute to a major capital project. Recent projects have included the Woodland Community College electronic bulletin board, a specialized playground at Greengate School, the new Yolo Food Bank facility. We just recently committed to funding the "Cheetah" a diagnostic tool that will be used for sepsis patients at Woodland Healthcare.
On the international side, we have participated in projects ranging from water wells, to dental clinics, to cervical cancer screening.
We meet every Tuesday from 12:00-1:15 for lunch, a brief business meeting, and an informative program. We also have various social events throughout the year. We strive for a diverse membership that includes leaders in all facets of the community, a great group to know and learn from. If you are looking to meet new friends, learn something interesting every week, and are searching for a way to give back, please contact us.
President-elect Mike Chandler is whipping up a big event, but he needs
the help of all members to make it happen.

February 20th Meeting
Sylvina Frausto (center) and Teresa Pena were our guest speakers today, giving us a presentation on 'Community Alliance for Education'. Ms Frausto is the winner of the 2017 Liberty Bell Award presented by the Yolo County Bar Association. Thank you Lori Ross for arranging & introducing this important program.
Many thanks to Laurie Ruiz for all the great pictures she takes for the Club!
We enjoyed seeing Asst DG Chris Jones (Winters) and her husband Roy at today's meeting. It was also great to have former member Riggo Torres with us today. Do you think President Peter Holmes enjoys his job? Frank Gardner got us straightened out on something.
Kevin 'Good News' Haarberg led the way on Recognition today.
Got the sad news that Roger Dorris will be moving to Rocklin soon.
Lunch Price Increase
Beginning in March 2018, the price of a lunch at Club meetings will raise to $18. Triggered by a cost increase from our caterer, Cracchiolos, the Club discussed and voted to approve the increase at the Club’s February 20, 2018 meeting.
February 13th Meeting
Dr. Joseph Sky, MD, Chief of Cardiology at the US Air Force Schoold of Aerospace Medicine, was our guest speaker today giving us a fascinating presentation on 'Enhancing Western Medicine's Care of the Heart with Wisdom from the Blue Zones'. Thanks to Brian Lin for arranging and introducing this interesting program.
Jim Nolan was presented with his Paul Harris Fellowship pin (+3); Les Engelmann celebrated a birthday recently; Scott Johnston found a free lunch; and we got a little insight on Carl Rodegerdts.
A happy Chuck Maltese took the Recognition helm today. Sunrise Rotarians Charles Mack and Nick Ponticello visited us once again today.
