President`s Message

Rotarians around the world are known as “People of Action.” The Rotary Club of Sebastopol certainly lives up to that billing! Our members - over 110 women and men – believe in the joy of working together and the power of serving others. We tackle important projects that make a positive difference in our community and our world. And we have lots of fun while we’re at it! Here’s just a sample of our projects:

 
  • teaching second graders to swim
  • helping high school youth overcome significant obstacles
  • partnering with local service organizations to improve their buildings and facilities
  • working with Rotary clubs in distant countries to improve lives and build ties of international friendship
Whether it’s providing equipment and supplies for local school classrooms (over $275,000 in the past 17 years!) or providing grants to help local organizations accomplish their good works in West Sonoma County, we are constantly looking for new ways to serve. This Rotary year, we’re partnering with the Rotary Club of Sebastopol Sunrise and the City of Sebastopol to replace the Super Playground at Ives Park that is used year-round by kids and families from across West County!
 
If you want to be with “People of Action,” experience the rewards of putting service above self and have fun doing it, you’ve found the right group. Check out our website, ask around the community, give us a hand on a project, or join us for a luncheon meeting. Use the “Contact Us” link and we’ll get connected. Thanks for your interest in the Rotary Club of Sebastopol!
 
Yours in Rotary Service,
Keller McDonald, President 2019/20
Learn To Swim Program 2020
Do you want your second grader to find joy
in being in water, to raise their self-esteem
and learn the valuable life skill, swimming?
 
Do we have a deal for you!
 
 
2020 is our club’s 36th year offering free swim
lessons to all second graders in the Sebastopol
area.
 
The lessons will be taught

from April 20 to May 14

and each kid gets two 1/2 hour classes per
week, for a total of 8 lessons.
 
We teach basic swim lessons and water safety.
 
 
A state park ranger-lifeguard talks to the kids
about safety at the ocean and Russian
River.
 
According to national statistics, one life is
saved for every 100 kids taught to swim.
 
12,000 kids have taken our lessons. 
If you do the math, that’s a huge number
of lives saved. 
 
 
We can only do this program with community help. 
We rely on volunteers, and you’ve never let us down. 
All offers will be gratefully accepted.
