President's Message

The Palo Alto University Rotary Club is a Business Fellowship. Each year the Rotary International President selects a theme for Rotarians to focus on around the world. This year’s theme is “Be a Gift to the World”. Come and help us plan how we can “Be a Gift to the World” in our community and beyond.

Happy 4th of July

We welcome the opportunity to celebrate the 4th of July with our community. This day celebrates our Declaration of Independence and the birth of the United States of America as an independent nation.
As the first service project for the Palo Alto University Rotary Club under President Richard Schoelerman, we worked with friends, family and our fellow Rotarians at the Palo Alto Rotary Club to put flags up on University Avenue in Palo Alto. Afterwards we met for snacks and fellowship.  


The Annual Debunking!

Annually we "debunk" our outgoing president and welcome our incoming president. We close the prior year theme and welcome the new theme.
At the end of the fun-filled celebration, Sandra graciously turned over her 15 pounds of club neck ware ...
and Richard proudly donned the gear and promised the crowd they would be in for some fun - Texas style.

2015 Rotary Convention
In June 2015 four members from the club attended the Rotary International Convention in Sao Paulo Brazil. It was a great opportunity to meet other Rotarians and learn about the many ways that Rotary is changing the world.

Memorial Weekend 2015
We are proud to help our community honor those members of the armed services who paid the ultimate price to ensure our freedom. Working with the Palo Alto Rotary club we placed flags along University Avenue in Palo Alto.
