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.
Rotary Scholarships Presented
Our Club presented its 2016 Scholarship to Pioneer High School's Valedictorian Erick Palomares on May 26. Erick earned a 4.32 grade point average in high school and has been accepted to UCLA next year where he plans to major in Chemistry or Biochemistry. The Club's Scholarship to Woodland High School was presented to Valedictorian Bridget Linney last week. Bridget also plans to attend UCLA. Club Scholarship Chair Becky Martin hopes to have these students join us at a club meeting soon.
May 24th Meeting
Our own Lori Ross, Executive Director of the Woodland United Way, was our speaker today, giving us a presentation outlining a Change in Direction for Woodland United Way. John Lecky, Woodland United Way Board member, introduced Lori.
We welcomed visiting Sunrise Rotarian Phil Marler, and guests Juan Barajas (Lori Ross) and Dillon Dougherty (Mike Chandler) to our meeting today.
Fearless Scott Johnston took the helm for today's Recognition.
Digital Minds Thank You
Earlier this year our Club contributed a $800 sponsorship to the Digital Minds FRC Team 5458 comprised of local high school students participating in a national Robitics competition. The sponsorship was used to purchase team sweatshirts which they are wearing in this Thank You card they sent to the Club.
Ruby Falls Donation
At our May 10th meeting President-elect Gary Wegener presented a $25,000 check from the Woodland Rotary Endowment to Debra Johnsen, Principal of Greengate School (part of the Yolo County Office of Education) and Administrative Secretary Rosalva Wisterman for construction of the Ruby Falls Play Structure. These funds were raised in the Club's 2016 Dinner Auction.
Cache Creek High School Donation
At our May 10th meeting, Will Jarrell, Principal of Cache Creek High School accepted a $5,000 check from the Woodland Rotary Endowment today for improvements to be made to the school's CommuniCare facilities where student health services are provided. These funds were also raised at the Club's 2016 Dinner Auction.
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.
Auction Prize - Morrocan Dinner
Gary & Meg Wirth entertained Kris Rominger, Helene Dorris, Polly Van Muyden, Kathy Erickson, Jan Shaffer, Pat Armstrong, and Bernell & Sandy Harlan at their home recently with a Morrocan Dinner purchased by the guests at the Club's 2016 Dinner Auction.
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.

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'.
