President`s Message


Rotary’s new International President, Jennifer Jones, has asked us all to “re-imagine” Rotary in the coming year.  At the Rotary Club of Sebastopol, we intend to do just that.

We have two major challenges this year, both of which move us toward our goal of becoming the organization that is the heart and soul of volunteerism in West Sonoma County.  One challenge is that we want to recruit lots of new members to help fulfill our obligation to put “service above self.” The second is that we need to re-think how we serve the community in order to generate the maximum impact that we can achieve from the money we raise and the hours we donate in community service.
If you are not a club member but live in West County, we invite you to be in touch.  We want you as a member.  And we think you will want to be a member both because of who we are and what we do. 
Our club has always promised that we will amplify every Rotarian’s voice.  Supporting our projects is fulfilling, both because of the good they do and the fellowship they build with your fellow Rotarians. After a short while as a member, you will come to understand that you can have so much more impact – and have so many more friends – by being a part of Rotary rather than remaining as a solitary volunteer. 
By reading through the website, we are confident you, too, will come to the conclusion that we build life-long friendships while at the same time giving back to the community – over and over again.
We are all a little disoriented from a long pandemic.  For so many of us, life has been turned upside down.  Let us help you put everything back in perspective.  If you want to know your community and give back to it, there is no better way.
Yours in Rotary Service,
Hal Kwalwasser, President 2022 - 2023
