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.

2015 - Oktoberfest at Stevenson House - Affordable Senior Housing

Stevenson House is a local affordable senior housing facility in Palo Alto. Each October, PAUR has hosted an Oktoberfest for the residents and their family. This year was particularly special because Stevenson House is beginning a major renovation that will ensure quality affordable housing for our local seniors for years to come.

PAUR Launches IndieGoGo Campaign!

The Palo Alto University Rotary Club has launched its first crowd funding campaign! Project Salud!
Please help us be a gift to the world.
There are three ways you can help us help young women in the community like Alejandra, Zaira and Karla
1.  Contribute – even small contributions raise awareness and popularity on IndieGoGo! This will help our campaign gain visibility on the IndieGoGo site.
2.  Send the Campaign link to friends and family!
3.  Post to Facebook – Like, tweet, share on LinkedIn – whatever your social media outlet, help us leverage awareness for the campaign and the great work Rotary does. In the end, the more people that hear about the campaign, the more likely we are to meet our funding goal.
We believe focusing on maternal health, will help improve the health and welfare of the community at large, which gives the wonderful children a better opportunity.
Thank you!


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.
