Welcome…from the President

As we begin another adventurous year, our team will be working hard towards leaving its mark on this world.   In keeping with Rotary International’s 2017-2018 theme, “Rotary: Making a Difference,” our focus moving forward will be hands-on projects and giving back in our local communities.  
We will continue the exciting projects we have championed or been involved with through the years: our always-heartwarming Thanksgiving Dinner for Seniors, the annual Pumpkin Festival, Trunk-or-Treat, Blood Drive, and something new, Buddy Benches.
We also have our semi-annual Calabingo returning in October and April.  Not to mention next July’s annual Rotary at the Hollywood Bowl, with fireworks, wonderful music and a chance to share fellowship and camaraderie with family, friends and other Rotarians.
Internationally, last year we participated in partnership with Operation Smile in the Philippines.  What an amazing experience!  A project we will undertake again this year.  Please consider joining us!
Our Rotary Club of Calabasas Foundation in partnership with the City of Calabasas’ Neighbor in Need program, will continue to help Calabasas residents in immediate need to ease the burdens of daily living as well as award grants to non-profit organizations. The Foundation will also continue to give scholarships to deserving students.
We believe in having FUN while doing good work to benefit the underserved in our communities and around the world – literally service with a smile!  So come share in the fun and help us to continue leading with passion and purpose.  Join our Calabasas Rotary family!
