Collectively, this group leads us do great things in the Tri-Valley and around the world. Please meet our board. Better yet...join us for a meeting and meet the whole club of around 60 members strong!

I've only been a Rotarian since 2017, but it has been an amazing experience so far. I was looking for a way to give back to my community and Rotary, along with the "service above self" motto, was a perfect fit. Along with volunteering, I enjoy running, traveling, the beach, and I'm a dog lover!
