South Placer Rotary Club  President's Message

   
 
 
Thank you for stopping by the South Placer Rotary Club Website! I am sure you have seen the Rotary International logo when entering towns or at festivals but What exactly is Rotary? 
 
"We engage people in action with impactful community service projects and social benefit programs while connecting those in need to a global network of resources.”
 
As a member of South Placer Rotary Club, together we do meaningful work for the community. We will have a supportive atmosphere as we become friends, working together to build an engaging club environment, partnerships within the city, county, school district, business community and regionally with our Brewfest summer celebration. Rotary clubs are often the best kept secret in a town. However the work we do for Rocklin might be more recognizable than you think.
 
Our club is famous for hosting the annual Rocklin Brewfest. This event is held every year on the first Saturday of June. It is our way of living the Service-Above-Self mantra by giving back to the community while fundraising. We have 50+ craft breweries over a dozen food trucks and vendors that are sponsored by local businesses.  
 
Why do we host this exciting event?
 
The proceeds of this annual fundraising event helps our club complete many community service projects such as:
 
Our Brewfest ticket booth at The Rocklin Chamber's Hot Chili Cool Cars event, We installed benches at the new Sunset Whitney Recreation Area, Rocklin Christmas Tree Lighting Chili and Crafts Booth, Mexico orphanage projects and student scholarships, Assistance for foster youth attending Sierra College, Worked with the Red Cross to install Smoke Alarms, Aerospace Museum for local Junior High students, Hooked on Fishing for local elementary students, Feed My Starving Children Food packing event, Chrome Books to Rocklin Schools, Lighting For Literacy, 
Holiday Baskets for local families in need 
Peter Hill heritage walking path project 
Sponsor of Rocklin Library Programs 
Hosted a Blood Drive with Vitalant 
Scholarships to local high schools 
 High school Interact programs 
 Grants for local projects 
 Free Little Libraries 
 
 
For those of you who are looking to get involved with the community while building friendships this is the place for you! We invite you to become part of a global network of People in Action.  Together we will do great things for the community by improving where we live, work and play!  
 
I invite you to join us for lunch in Rocklin at Whitney Oaks Country Club and find out more about the world of Rotary and how you can make a difference.

2019 Demotion Dinner
 
Our 2019 Demotion BBQ was held on Wednesday, July 10 at the home of Mark and Demaris Schlueter.  Our gracious hosts treated us to an amazing backyard venue that was coupled with refreshing drinks and an amazing BBQ prepared by our very own Ken Hubert.
 
The event, with 42 Rotarians and their guests in attendance, proved to be a fun and relaxing evening.  We had the opportunity to thank outgoing President Ron Adams for his hard work and tireless service during the past year.  Additionally, recognition was provided to Rob Angell and Scott Yuill for their outstanding service throughout year which, as was noted, made a clear and lasting difference.
 
Official recognition of our 2019-2020 President, Ken Broadway, closed out the evening.  We have a great year of service both locally and globally planned and the club is clearly looking forward to an exciting and service filled year.
In closing, we want to again say a special thank you to Mark and Demaris Schlueter as well as Ken Hubert for all their hard work making this an unforgettable Demotion BBQ.
