Celebrating over 50 Years
of Service & Friendship
The Rotary Club of Pleasanton, chartered in 1965, is about Doing Good and Having Fun and that is why we are The World's Greatest Rotary Club. In 2015, we celebrated 50 years of service & friendship. Our goal for 2016-2017 is to continue to lay the groundwork for our club's next 50 years.
We are an organization of women and men who represent a diverse mix of professions and participate in a variety of local and international projects, including: scholarships for high school students, service projects for senior citizens, and providing over 3,500 wheelchairs for those in need. Our annual Father’s Day Spirit Run is our primary fundraiser and a treasured community event. Included below is our aerial drone video of the event – the views of Downtown Pleasanton are incredible!
The Rotary Club of Pleasanton meets Thursdays for lunch, music, and our speakers program. We meet at HAP'S Original, 122 West Neal Street – join us.

The 2015/16 Rotary Club of Pleasanton Demotion/Promotion Dinner was held at the Castlewood Country Club on June 30, 2016. The host was Scott Raty who got the evening started at 8pm.
Current President Janet Yarbrough was brought up on stage to play Match Game with six celebrities. The celebrities were as follows:

Jewel- aka Julie Lewis

Singing Sandra Aguilera- aka Sandra Lepley

Janet was asked 4 questions and she needed to successfully match her answers with those of the celebrities at least 10 times in order for her to pass her leadership mantle on to Randy Brown.
