President`s Message

The Rotary Club of Sebastopol is looking forward to the 2020-21 year, determined to continue to play a vital role in our community.
2019-2020 proved our worth to our fellow citizens in West County.  Even though we were threatened by the Kinkade fire in October and directed to shelter in place in March, we found ways of serving other people and maintaining our close ties amongst ourselves.  It gives us both purpose and confidence for the coming year.
Last year we committed resources to helping community businesses and institutions that were at risk after the shutdown.  Those people are by no means yet in the clear.  Their needs will continue, as will our support for them. 
The same is true for our students and local education facilities.  Budgets will be tight, and opportunities for new experiences and better learning constrained.  We continue to support the Construction Corps, our project with the North Bay Builders Exchange to introduce high school students to opportunities in the construction trades.  And we will do our best to support innovative teachers who can significantly improve classroom experiences with innovations that they can create with one of our teacher grants. 
We will do our best to raise money and commit time to the rest of the worthy causes we’ve done over the years – and to find new and significant projects for the future.  At the same time, we intend to do everything we can to sustain our fellowship.  Whether or not we can gather in person, we can – and will – gather by Zoom to trade stories, share ideas, and support each other through what may be a trying time.
Please join us.  Come to our fundraisers (if we can have them), donate to our projects, and most of all, come be part of our Club.
Yours in Rotary Service,
Dan Rasmus, President 2020/21
