Oakland Rotary Volunteers Make KinderPrep Zoo field trip a success

On April 26, 2016 eleven buses each holding 70 students and chaperones descended on the Oakland Zoo.  Twenty three Oakland Rotary volunteers escorted them to and around the grounds and served lunch.  The weather was gorgeous and a great time was had by all.  The hardest working folks were the goats in the contact area who had their busiest day ever.  Thanks to Oakland Rotarian and Zoo docent  Michael Bruck for helping keep them on their feet.  Next comes Fairyland on May 20.  If you'd like to attend the high energy and fun event sign-up here.  http://goo.gl/forms/NwtyzVB5sf

Rotary’s strength comes from the combined efforts of business and professional people who want to give back to the community and who want to meet and work with other like-minded people. It is the place where business meets community service. To learn more about membership in Oakland Rotary, please contact Pat Williams our Executive Director or Mary Lowery, Erin McGlynn or John Dolby, co-chairs Membership Recruiting Committee.

Youth & Education Committee's New Project


This year, the Youth and Education Committee will be undertaking support of a new Oakland Unified School District program for pre-kindergarteners, called Transitional Kindergarten, which is the first new grade level since the 1870s. This will be a key educational program to get kids started learning early, which is crucial to later success.
