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, screening over 900 women, and training/certifying a cadre of Nicaraguan medical professionals to be able to further expand the program in future years. 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.
 

 

If you have a project you would like us to consider, click on the Project Proposal link to the left, and send it in for our consideration.

 

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

Last May Woodland Rotary Endowment presented a $25,000 check (funds raised at the Club's 2016 Dinner Auction) to Greengate School (part of the Yolo County Office of Education) for the acquisition & development of a Ruby Falls play structure at the campus. That play structure, part of a larger Playground Project, was opened and dedicated on October 5th.
