Welcome

“Rotary is a fellowship group that meets to do service projects”
 
Welcome to the South Placer Rotary Club Web site!  The Rotary motto is "Service Above Self."
We are proud to serve the Rocklin and South Placer area. The main objective of Rotary is service — in the community, in the workplace, and throughout the world.
 
Our major fundraising activity is the Rocklin Brewfest, the proceeds of which help fund many of our annual programs such as -
•             Hooked on Fishing for local elementary students
•             Aerospace Museum for local Jr. High students
•             Holiday Baskets for local families in need
•             Scholarships to local high schools
•             Sponsor of Rocklin Library Programs
•             Grants for local projects
•             Assistance for foster youth attending Sierra College
•             Free Little Libraries
•             High school Interact programs
•             Senior Citizen smoke detector checks
•             Mexico orphanage projects and student scholarships
 
Our weekly meetings feature guest speakers and other opportunities for social activities for our members. While we spend a lot of time devoted to service, we endeavor to have fun and fellowship at our weekly meetings. If you are interested in finding out more about Rotary and giving back to our community, we would welcome the opportunity to meet you at one of our club meetings!
 
Sincerely,
Randy Green
2017-2018 Club President
 
 
It's hard to believe that we are already into the middle of Summer and battling the July heat.  Erin has just completed her term as President she is so appreciated for her dedication and hard work she has given this club.  If you have been attending meetings, you will know that we have had some amazing speakers and will continue to book great speaker so please make it a priority to attend weekly meetings.
 
Our ninth annual Rocklin Brewfest was a huge success with great weather, awesome brewers and of coarse the wonderful people that attend that make it a great event.  Save the date of June 2, 2018 as Tony Owings is leading the charge to make our 10th annual Rocklin Brewfest better than ever.   We have grown this event to become a must attend attraction for our area and we hope to have over 50 breweries and over 2,000 attendee at our event.  The money raise at this event funds all of the giving programs in our community, our region and even international projects.

Happy New Year!
 
We are excited to start the new year at the South Placer Rotary Club. President Erin has kept us on our toes so far for the first half of her term. In 2016 we took a bus load of third graders fishing in the spring. Then again in the fall, we took another bus load of eight graders for an educational experience at the Sacramento Aerospace Museum. We helped lay stones in the new Rocklin orchards on Front Street. We installed smoke and carbon monoxide detectors in 75 homes in one or our local senior mobile home parks along side the American Red Cross. To end the year, we packed and delivered Christmas bags to the children and families of a couple dozen Rocklin residents. We also provided scholarships to Whitney and Victory High School seniors and sponsored Interact Clubs at both schools. In order for us to properly serve the community, we need a to raise money. Once again the South Placer community came out and supported another very successful Rocklin Brewfest in June. We hope you can join us for Rocklin Brewfest 2017 on June 3rd. We are not all about work, we also like to have fun. Thank you to Randy and Veronica Green for hosting our annual summer social around his pool. Thank you also to Jeff and Janice Brower for opening their home for our 2016 Christmas celebration. Robb Angel and Scott Hutton also did a fantastic job arranging our monthly socials and our annual Placer Trails wine trip. We look forward to seeing what is in store for our club and community in the coming year!

Five years since its debut, Rotary Club Central is getting a big upgrade
When we introduced Rotary Club Central in 2012, it revolutionized goal tracking and planning for clubs and districts — no more filling out paper club-planning forms or passing along boxes of historical club information every time a new leader took office. Rotary Club Central offered clubs and districts a quantifiable way to begin measuring local and global impact, specifically membership initiatives, service activities, and Rotary Foundation giving. But as with any technological advancement, in a few short years, Rotary Club Central began to show its age, and Rotarians took notice. They...
Rotary International Board adopts new zone structure
At its January 2017 meeting, the Rotary International Board of Directors adopted a new zone structure for Rotary clubs. Rotary bylaws require the Board to complete a comprehensive review of the 34 Rotary zones no less often than every eight years to ensure that each zone has an approximately equal number of Rotarians. The Board’s previous review of the zones occurred in 2008. The Board earlier approved the creation of three regional workgroups to develop rezoning proposals for Asia, Europe/Africa, and the Americas. These workgroups comprised one representative (either a current director,...

Convention: Southern hospitality
The Atlanta Host Organization Committee is offering some good old-fashioned Southern hospitality at the Rotary International Convention from 10 to 14 June. It has planned a wide range of activities featuring everything from good food and music to inspiring tours of local landmarks. If it’s your first convention, these events are chances to meet fellow Rotarians from around the world, and if you’re an experienced convention goer, you can catch up with old friends. Hall of Fame baseball player Hank Aaron will host Rotarians for a “Strike Out Polio” night at the new SunTrust Park, where you’ll...
Member spotlight: The power of the press
When Teguest Yilma helped found the Rotary Club of Addis Ababa Entoto in 2002, she thought polio had already been eradicated from most of the world. But while Ethiopia had been free of the disease, Yilma was shocked to learn that new cases had started cropping up in surrounding countries such as Somalia. “I was thinking, it’s not possible, we can’t be free if the countries around us are not free,” she says. Yilma, the managing editor of Capital, Ethiopia’s largest English weekly newspaper, has brought a journalist’s skills to the fight against polio. She became vice chair of the Ethiopia...
