"Service Above Self"
Service is at the heart of what it means to be a Rotarian.
Over the years, our dedicated members have raised and distributed over $2 million dollars to nonprofit organization in our local community, as well as internationally. We host annual funraising events to support and serve our community including the Tri-Valley Turkey Burn run/walk on Thanksgiving morning and our A Starry Night fundraising gala.
Here are some of our local community and international projects, fundraising events and youth programs:
