The Newark Rotary Club was founded on May 8, 1961. The membership consists of individuals representing a wide range of professions and businesses located in the Tri-City community. Like all Rotary Clubs, Newark’s consists of five main areas: Club Service, Community Service, Youth Service, International Service and Vocational Service. Each year, the club elects a President who serves from July 1 through June 30.

Members of the Newark Rotary Club contribute to the club through annual dues and "fines" levied throughout the year. The Club's major fund raiser is it’s annual Crab and Pasta Feed held in November. Last year, over 600 people enjoyed an evening of all-you-can-eat crab and pasta as well as raffle prizes and a live auction. Over $30,000 was raised for local charities.

Newark Rotary has a proud tradition of contributing to many local charities and organizations. In the last two years, the Newark Rotary Club has contributed to: Abode, Viola Blythe Community Services Center, Newark Memorial High School, Tri Cities League of Volunteers, Interact Scholarships, Boy Scouts, Life Elder Care, Make a Wish Foundation, YMCA, Camp RYLA, Relay for Life, the Newark Betterment Corporation, Fremont Symphony Orchestra and Stage 1 Theatre just to name a few.

Newark Rotarians also give their time to local organizations and events such as the League of Volunteers Thanksgiving turkey carving, Gift Wrapping at the Viola Blythe Center, Newark Senior Center Events, Newark Days, Salvation Army bell ringing, and the Rotary Chili Cook-off.

Newark Rotary is also involved in International humanitarian projects: a burn center in Chile, stoves in Guatemala, and water projects in Africa. The club has contributed over $30,000 towards the Polio Plus program which is working to eradicate Polio around the world. Newark Rotarians have also funded and participated in building numerous homes in Mexico for impoverished families through the Corazon organization.

How a simple school project in India became a global grant
Two years ago, U.S. Rotary members in Maine set out to improve the education system in Bikaner, Rajasthan, an Indian city near the border of Pakistan. The Rotary Club of Kennebunk Portside chose Bikaner because club member Rohit Mehta was originally from the area and had connections there. Mehta put the club in contact with Rotarians in India to provide desks for four government-run schools. But when community leaders returned with a request for more desks, the Maine Rotarians decided they had to think bigger. The Rotary Foundation had rolled out its new grant model, which required that the...
Korean sailor makes waves for End Polio Now
Enjoying calm winds and peaceful Pacific waters, Seung Jin Kim dove off his 43-foot sailboat, the Arapani, to swim with some dolphins nearby. The serenity that day near the equator was a stark contrast to the 60 mph winds and 23-foot waves he had to fight around Cape Horn, the southern tip of South America. But Kim, a veteran sailor and member of the Rotary Club of Seokmun, in Chungcheongnam, Korea, expected such challenges when he set out in mid-October on a 25,600-mile journey around the world. In addition to fulfilling a lifelong dream, Kim is using the trip to raise awareness and funds...
Monrovia club’s Ebola fight not finished
After the first cases of Ebola reached Liberia's capital, Monrovia, last June, local Rotary members feared that the city's limited health care system wouldn't be able to contain the highly infectious, often-deadly disease. Those fears were realized when infections quickly multiplied, underscoring the speed with which Ebola can spread in an urban center. It was the first time the hemorrhagic fever had threatened a major city since it erupted in West Africa last March. Now, after months of crisis-level response, and with the number of new cases declining, club members are looking to the long...
Rotary member takes fundraising to new heights -- the summit of Mount Everest
Despite his longstanding interest in polio eradication, polio was not on Joe Pratt's mind as he prepared for a mid-April 2012 climb of Mount Everest, the highest mountain on earth. But that changed in late 2011, when the resident of Nottingham, New Hampshire, USA, participated in a polio immunization project in Pakistan with fellow Rotary member Steve Puderbaugh. Moved by the efforts of the Pakistanis to battle the crippling disease, and by the vulnerability of the young victims, Pratt reset the focus of his climbing adventure. Pakistan is one of three countries where polio has never been...
San Francisco club reveals formula for growth and retention of members
Members of the Rotary Club of San Francisco Evening meet at a wine bar after work, share a social outing, and promote all their activities on social media like Meetup and Facebook. As the first evening club in the city, it has attracted many young professionals from Silicon Valley tech firms whose work schedules keep them from joining a more traditional club that meets for breakfast or lunch. But more than that, the evening format has helped the club grow by 30 percent since it received its charter in mid-2013. Danielle Lallement, who was its charter president, says the club has been...
