The Lynwood Rotary Club was chartered in 1936: Club members and officers devote time and money to activities that benefit young people, senior citizens, and those in need. The Club undertakes projects independently or in collaboration with other organizations. We support students from Lynwood High School and Hosler Middle School through the Interact and Youthact clubs that are part of Rotary international's Youth Service projects.

Lynwood Rotary Club's Focus Activities: In addition to a full schedule of educational programs and social activites, Lynwood Rotary Club is committed to the highest levels of community service.

Community and Vocational Service:

SCHOLARSHIPS: Every year Lynwood Rotary Club provides scholarships to students at Lynwood high School and other deserving students in the community.

INTERACT CLUB: Lynwood High School

YOUTHACT CLUB: Hosler Middle School

Interact and Youthact clubs are like mini-Rotary clubs. They work with our support and guidance and conduct their meetings and community work just like we do. On an average they have about 50 members, who receive first-hand experience in leadership and community work at a very young age.

DISASTER AID: When disasters occur, our club steps forward to help those in need.

POLICE AND FIRE DEPARTMENT RECOGNITION: Recipients chosen by Lynwood Fire Fighters and Police Officers are honored and awarded at a special ceremony organized by our club.

SPEECH AND ART AWARDS: We sponsor students from Lynwood High School to the District Speech and Art contests, where they can win recognition and exciting prizes.

LITERACY: Donation of books to local elementary schools through district literacy program. Rotarians read to children in Lynwood elementary schools.

INTERNATIONAL SERVICE: From time to time we participate in International literacy projects to help provide free education to needy children around the world.

COME JOIN US FOR LUNCH ANY THURSDAY FROM 12 NOON TILL 1.30 PM AND BECOME A PART OF THIS LIFE-CHANGING COMMUNITY WORK

Restoring vision to hundreds in China
Seeing an elderly Tibetan woman weep with joy when cataract surgery restored her vision after 10 years is the kind of moment Dave Razo will never tire of. For several summers Razo, a member of the Rotary Club of Warner Robins, Georgia, USA, traveled to rural northwest China with a team from Georgia-based nonprofit Gansu Inc., to provide free sight-restoring cataract surgery to some of the country's poorest residents. In 2012, after 22 years and 6,000 successful procedures, Gansu's founder, ophthalmologist William Conrad, retired and discontinued the organization's operations. But Razo didn't...
World Polio Day: Health officials laud polio eradication achievements, point to disease’s endgame
After a year of shrinking polio cases worldwide, the crippling disease is now on the cusp of being eradicated, said top health officials at Rotary's second annual World Polio Day event on 24 October. At a special Livestream program -- World Polio Day: Make History Today -- Rotary leaders joined global health experts and celebrity singers to hail the progress of the Global Polio Eradication Initiative. After nearly 30 years, the GPEI, which includes Rotary, the World Health Organization, UNICEF, U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, is on...
Dynamic young club uses social media to grow
Erin Mills had just finished teaching for the day in Montevideo, Uruguay, when her smartphone buzzed with a message. An impromptu gathering to watch Uruguay's World Cup soccer match was being organized. Through the power of a mobile messaging app, a majority of the Rotary Club of Plaza Matriz had soon assembled at a member's home to munch on baked goods and chips while rooting for their national team. That enthusiasm and ability to draw a crowd has made the club, which just received its charter in July, a success in the country's capital city. Made up almost entirely of young professionals,...

Creating works of art helps refugee children repair their lives
When asked to describe his future, a refugee child from Iraq draws a picture of himself as a doctor. Another child uses colorful paints to depict happy memories of his former life in Iraq. Both children are among the 200,000 displaced Iraqis who now live in Jordan, a country that has become a safe haven for those fleeing oppression and war in neighboring Palestine, Syria, and Iraq. Alexandra Dawley, a former volunteer with the Collateral Repair Project in Jordan, emphasizes how something as simple as an art project can help young refugees adjust to their new lives in a foreign country. With...
