Rotary Club of Woodland

Local and International Service is our goal...


   The Rotary Club of Woodland is a service organization represented by some of the most influential and respected leaders of our community.  Our goal and reason for being is to improve the lives of those in our community and the world – and have a little fun and fellowship along the way.


Club Members are a part of a worldwide organization interested in world peace, understanding and most notably leading the effort to eliminate polio from the planet.  The “End Polio Now” effort of Rotary has eliminated Polio from all but 3 countries and all 3,000 clubs in the world are committed and working to end Polio in the next few years – we are “This Close”!


Locally our Club sponsors leadership camps and provides scholarships to local students, provides a free BBQ Lunch to seniors each year, supports community projects and promotes community awareness and education for our Members through interesting and informational programs each week.
