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

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.

Partners build community center and health clinic in impoverished Mexico neighborhood
Four years ago, Rotary member Moonyeen King decided to take action to help residents of the impoverished neighborhood of Tepehua, located in Chapala, Jalisco, Mexico, who faced daily struggles with crime, malnutrition, and limited access to health care. King, together with Susan Netherton and Gin Pelzl, fellow members of the Rotary Club of Ajijic, turned an abandoned building into the Tepehua Community Center.
