Rotary Club of Tehachapi was founded in June of 1987 and serves the local area through its volunteer members efforts.   The club follows the Rotary motto of “Service Above Self” in doing good things for our community.  Our Ongoing community service projects include:

·         Annual Holiday Luncheon for Seniors – this December event provides a scrumptious free holiday meal, seasonal entertainment and prizes for our town’s senior citizens.

·         Youth Service – We sponsor and support the Interact Clubs of Tehachapi High School and of Valley Oaks HS. These groups are designed to provide youngsters with leadership and good citizen training, they provide community help projects throughout the school year.  Rotary provides opportunities for high school Interact students to attend Rotary Youth Leadership Awards (RYLA) camp each year.  The four day immersion in leadership training and citizenship building takes place in Ojai each April.

·         Literacy Project – The club provides a special personalized story book to kindergarten kids at all Tehachapi Elementary Schools.  The book gives the children a fun start with reading and helps them develop an interest in education.

·         Breakfast with Santa – in conjunction with other local service clubs, we host the annual Breakfast with Santa for the children in our community.  We serve juice, milk, coffee, pancakes and sausage and created an opportunity for a free picture with Santa.

·         International Projects – Each year the club selects a project to assist people in a foreign country.  Our Rotarians travel to Tijuana, Mexico, to help at an orphanage.  We've raised funds in association with the Thousand Oaks Rotary Club to provide a Van for the Orphanage. We are also participating in a Global Grant for polio eradication...Our  Fashion Show fund raiser has been key in supporting polio eradication.

·         Community Support – throughout each year the Tehachapi Rotary Club takes the initiative to assist locally wherever possible.  We were there to help after large fires.  We support the Salvation Army’s ‘Coats for Kids’, aided their back to school clothing drive and shoe drive and participated in Christmas Angels.  We honor young men as they attain their rank of Eagle Scout.  We have even thrown our support to the dogs—Marley’s Mutts, a rescue in Tehachapi. We served at the “Old Timers” picnic in support of Parks and Rec.and we have assisted in serving at several Senior Center fundraisers.

While serving our fellow citizens, the Tehachapi Rotary Club embraces the concept of fellowship and good fun. Our activities include regular social events where we come together to celebrate our friendships and our successes. Our club is made up of business, professional and community leaders.
