ROTARY CLUB OF WOODLAND
Making a difference in the lives of people
in our community and around the world.
Thank you for visiting the Rotary Club of Woodland website, chartered in 1926.
Join us and the over 1.2 million Rotarians worldwide in helping to improve our communities. Our club members contribute time to improve Woodland in many ways including holding an annual Senior Citizens BBQ, volunteering for Meals on Wheels, helping with the annual FFA auction, mentoring the Woodland High School Interact Club, sponsoring young leaders to the Camp Royal Leadership Camp and the Camp Venture Entrepreneurship Camp, and contributing to the Woodland KIDS Read program. Every year we contribute to a major capital project. Recent projects have included the Woodland Community College electronic bulletin board, a specialized playground at Greengate School, the new Yolo Food Bank facility. We just recently committed to funding the "Cheetah" a diagnostic tool that will be used for sepsis patients at Woodland Healthcare.
On the international side, we have participated in projects ranging from water wells, to dental clinics, to cervical cancer screening.
We meet every Tuesday from 12:00-1:15 for lunch, a brief business meeting, and an informative program. We also 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 looking to meet new friends, learn something interesting every week, and are searching for a way to give back, please contact us.

Tanzania Children's Hospital Project
The new Digital X-ray building, at the Children's Hospital in Zinga, Tanzania, Africa, was recently opened. A $103,000 Rotary International Global Grant co-sponsored by all three Woodland Rotary clubs and others in our region, provided a digital x-ray system, a digital dental x-ray system and an ultrasound system, along with necessary training of local staff on their use, for this hospital.
'The primary objective of
this global grant is to improve access to diagnostic radiology services for the poor and underserved children of Tanzania.'
