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.

If you would like more information about the Newark Rotary Club or would like to attend a meeting please contact Club President Suzy Collazo at sucy4newark@gmail.com.

Beware of new email scam claiming to be from Foundation Chair Klinginsmith
A new email purporting to be from Rotary Foundation Trustee Chair Ray Klinginsmith is targeting Rotary members. The email falsely claims that members can become End Polio Now ambassadors if they email club information to a Gmail address within 48 hours. The fraudulent email has the subject line “BECOME AN END POLIO AMBASSADOR” and is sent from a fake email address. This is a scam. Rotary staff is working to resolve the issue. Avoid being the victim of scams by deleting any email that appears suspicious.
