Rotary Club of Woodland
Making a difference in the lives of people in our community and around the world.
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.
About 500 area senior citizens came to the Club's May 3rd Senior BBQ at Rotary Park to enjoy a free BBQ chicken lunch. Once again we thank Aniek Ramsay for organizing everything and to the numerous members who helped make this year's lunch successful.

Gibson House May Festival
Our Club grilled hamburgers, chicken burgers & hot dogs at the May 1st Gibson House May Fair, generating a donation of $1358 for the Gibson House. Our group, under the direction of Alan Flory, included Mike Chandler, Karl Diekman, Mark Faye, Dick Hoppin, Kris Kristensen, Aniek Ramsay, Carl Rodegerdts, Laurie Ruiz (& friend Tammy), Dan Stroski, Steve Venables, Mark Werum, and Gary & Meg Wirth.
The Mystery Golf trip on April 27th took 43 player to visit Tilden Park Golf Course in Berkeley. Following about an hour of rain, the sun came out beautifully. We capped the day with a stop at Matchbook Winery in Zamora. Thanks Gary Wirth for another fun event!
April 26, 2016 marked the 90th anniversary of the founding of our club! Approximately 130 attended a joint meeting of all three Woodland clubs that evening at the Gibson House, and enjoyed a great presentation by Steve Venables on the 'History of the Rotary Club of Woodland'.
April 19th Meeting
Doug Reed was our guest speaker at today's meeting, giving us a program on 'A Better Way for Schools in Yolo County'. Thanks to President-elect Gary Wegener for introducing this program!
