Rotary Club of Woodland
Making a difference in the lives of people in our community and around the world.
Founded in 1926, our club continues a Rotary tradition of service above self as we endeavor to contribute to the betterment of the world around us, near and far, having fun in the process. This year’s Rotary theme is “Rotary Serving Humanity”, a theme that binds our 1.2 million members, in clubs in essentially every country in the world.
Our projects run the gambit, from a 9 club effort to construct extra benches for the fairgrounds, new instruments for the music programs in local schools, to new equipment to allow the local hospital to screen for hearing problems in newborn babies. Each year we sponsor youth programs and scholarships, and a Senior BBQ.
On the international side, we have participated in projects ranging from water wells, to dental clinics, to tsunami relief. Recently, a club member and a doctor at the local hospital, initiated a cervical cancer screening and treatment project in Nicaragua. Cervical cancer, a highly treatable condition in developed countries, is the leading cause of death for women in many developing countries. Not only was the team (local and Nicaraguan hospital staff and Rotarians, and other outside professionals) able to screen 925 women, treating 40 women over two separate visits, they certified a cadre of Nicaraguan medical professionals to be able to continue both the screening/ treatment AND the training/certification process, to further expand the program. This model has been briefed to the UN and World Health Organization for expanded application, and another local club is now initiating a similar project in Kenya. Think how amazing that is.
We meet weekly for lunch, a brief business meeting, and a short program, typically a subject matter expert on local governmental affairs, new business concepts, community issues, etc. We 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 interested in finding out more, contact us.
A recent thankyou from the outbound Youth Exchange student we co-sponsored..
Good to see Don & daughter Jane O'Meara
Carl keeps us honest...

June 25th; President Kris Demoted!!!
Former President Kris was thoroughly demoted last Saturday at Yolo Fliers. Clyde Brooker, Mark Ullrich, Jim Nolan, Jim McGibbon, Roger Dorris, Clancy Duppong & Dan Stroski had way too much of a good time sending our Viking-like leader out the door with songs aplenty and a dubious look at the past year. A great time was had by All!!
June 21st Meeting
Dillon Dougherty, with sponsor Mike Chandler, was inducted as a new member of the Club today. A Woodland High School graduate, Dillon attended Northwestern University, where he twice earned All-Big Ten honors in golf. His amateur golf career culminated with a runner-up finish in the 2005 U.S. Amateur held at the Merion Golf Club outside Philadelphia, PA. Dillon subsequently competed in the 2006 Master and U.S. Open, and turned pro shortly thereafter, competing until 2013. Dillon recently moved back to the local area and is now embarking on a financial services career with Morgan Stanley. Dillon is married to Jennifer and they have a family of four. Members are encouraged to introduce themselves to Dillon and learn more of his family, interests and goals for the future.
Barbara Sonin won a free lunch in today's raffle.
