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.

Creating works of art helps refugee children repair their lives
When asked to describe his future, a refugee child from Iraq draws a picture of himself as a doctor. Another child uses colorful paints to depict happy memories of his former life in Iraq. Both children are among the 200,000 displaced Iraqis who now live in Jordan, a country that has become a safe haven for those fleeing oppression and war in neighboring Palestine, Syria, and Iraq. Alexandra Dawley, a former volunteer with the Collateral Repair Project in Jordan, emphasizes how something as simple as an art project can help young refugees adjust to their new lives in a foreign country.

Partners build community center and health clinic in impoverished Mexico neighborhood
Four years ago, Rotary member Moonyeen King decided to take action to help residents of the impoverished neighborhood of Tepehua, located in Chapala, Jalisco, Mexico, who faced daily struggles with crime, malnutrition, and limited access to health care. King, together with Susan Netherton and Gin Pelzl, fellow members of the Rotary Club of Ajijic, turned an abandoned building into the Tepehua Community Center. For its first year, the center provided a soup kitchen every Friday to feed over 200 women and children. That enabled King and her fellow Rotary members to gain the trust of the...
