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

Rotary Peace Centers shape hundreds of careers in peace and conflict resolution
With bloody conflicts raging in the Middle East, Eastern Europe, and parts of Central Africa, the message of nonviolence and reconciliation that nations worldwide will observe on 21 September demands more urgent and collective attention. In 2001 the United Nations designated the September date as an annual International Day of World Peace "to be observed as a day of global ceasefire and nonviolence" according to a General Assembly resolution. The day's devotion to peace connects closely with what Rotary members have been fostering since The Rotary Foundation's mission to advance world...
Illness leads former Navy code breaker to form world’s first Facebook-based Rotary club
When a life-threatening illness stripped away many of her professional ambitions, Amanda Wirtz, a former U.S. Navy code breaker and professional violinist, turned to humanitarian service and Facebook to give her life new purpose. Wirtz was in her twenties and pursuing a career as a fitness trainer when a sharp pain in her abdomen sent her to the emergency room. Expecting something manageable like appendicitis, she instead found herself facing a rare tumor disorder that required her to undergo 30 surgeries over the next several years. Forced to rethink her life plans, Wirtz began focusing on...
Tips to help your club find and nurture a Youth Exchange host family
With 12 children -- six girls and six boys -- the Labordes hardly needed to add another member to their family. But they did: Over 40 years ago, Julia Mullikin, a Rotary Youth Exchange student from the United States, became like another daughter to this large family in Los Mochis, Sinaloa, Mexico. "She's been a blessing for us," says Maria Victoria Hallal de Laborde who was 18 when Mullikin arrived in 1973. Like many exchange students, Mullikin remains close to her host family. So close that when one of Laborde's sisters was diagnosed with a rare, fatal disease, Mullikin arranged to send the...
Free vegetable gardens sprouting up around France
Imagine a community where the residents are all free to plant, grow, harvest, and eat healthy food whenever they want without having to pay for it. Sound too good to be true? That's exactly what residents of more than 20 cities and towns in France are doing through a project called Potalib. Launched by the Rotaract Club of Versailles, Potalib was inspired by the Incredible Edible project, an international food-sharing movement founded by Nick Green in England. The Rotaract members obtained Green's permission to apply the concept in France, changing the name to "Potalib," a contraction of "...
Anti-vaccine movement may have global repercussions
Supporters of the anti-vaccine movement question the safety, efficacy and necessity of the very medicines that have so greatly reduced our children's risk of catching a host of once-common but potentially very serious infectious diseases, such as mumps, measles and whooping cough. And then there's polio, the disabling, sometimes fatal virus that was every American parent's worst nightmare until effective vaccines were developed in the 1950s — and which still infects children in the developing world. Some who oppose vaccines are well-meaning parents who have come to believe — wrongly in the...
