ROTARY CLUB OF PLEASANTON NORTH. Weekly business lunch meetings on Fridays at Haps Original, 122 West Neal St., Pleasanton, CA. Website: www.pnr-rotary.org.
The Rotary Club of Pleasanton North (PNR) worked with its district office to persuade Rotary International (RI) to add Youth Service as its fifth Avenue of Service. The change boosted the importance of youth services in all aspects of Rotary’s work worldwide. PNR’s recent community service efforts have assisted the homeless, battered women, military families, developmentally disabled adults, and local health services responding to the COVID-19 pandemic.

TRI-VALLEY EVENING ROTARY. Dinner meetings at 6 p.m. Thursdays, online or in-person in Pleasanton. Website: www.trivalleyrotary.org.
Chartered in 2002, the Tri-Valley’s only evening Rotary club endeavors to go beyond its small size. Our members are passionate about hands-on projects, such as our annual Community Coat Drive for children and an on-going medical and women’s vocational training project in India. To support these and other projects, our Fleur Flingers fundraiser provides seed “bombs” that revitalize land devastated by recent wildfires.
