President's Message

The Bakersfield East Rotary Club was chartered on December 23rd, 1952. This year, we are celebrating our 65th anniversary! Our club motto for 2017-18 is "We are 65 and we care". 

If you can leave your stress behind for just one hour and are willing to have fun in the brotherhood and sisterhood of East Rotary, then you need to come to our meetings!

August Meetings In Review
(and a little bit more)
Brother Fong, preaching the good word on the reformation of our broken system.  Word brother.

 When Rotary meetings start lugging, our new Prez starts chuggin' ("apple juice" from Quon Louey of course). 

Jessica Mathews from League of Dreams:  Making all of us tear up as she makes humanity look good by encouraging others to help those with disabilities have a phenomenal time playing sports! 
Dr. Lynnette Zelezny, the new President of California State University of Bakersfield.  Here, she is making a personal guarantee that the Runners basketball team will not only make the NCAA tournament but will win it.  (If you think she really said that, check with her)  Still, our future looks promising with Dr. Zelezny at the helm.
Two people who are just so excited to be hanging with the cool crowd at a Bakersfield Rotary East meeting.  We make everyone who comes here look good.
The inaugural hanging of the "Larry Moxley Bib of Shame" and its worthy first recipient.
Like the elusive Sasquatch, a rare sighting of Bryan Oberg, who was immediately adorned with appropriate attire.
It was standing room only and even a standing ovation as Jeff Travis (who is far too excited here) was sworn in as the newest member of Bakersfield Rotary East.  It is rumored he had to leave out the back because of the throngs of supporters waiting at the door.  Great to have you Jeff, you truly are one of the greats!
