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.
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.
