Welcome to the Rotary Club of Santa Rosa - Real People, Real Impact

President José Guillén 2016 – 2017


Then, consider joining our Rotary Club.  Our Rotary Club of Santa Rosa is made up of ordinary community-minded men and women with extra-ordinary compassion and commitment to making a difference in the wellbeing of others through acts of kindness and service above-self.  We believe that service above-self, leads to the greater purpose of serving humanity.   If you are like us, you would find joy and fulfillment in being part of this network of caring community members, willing to invest your talents, effort, and energy to improving educational opportunities for our youth.  As well as, helping our local communities and other parts of the world in becoming better places to live and thrive as human beings.  There are no limits to our service above-self, whether it is the eradication of polio from the face of the earth, creating greater peace and understanding in our world through our various missions, or supporting worthy local non-profit organizations with grants and giving scholarships to deserving high school and junior college students.

Please consider attending our meetings, meet our members, and join our Rotary Family.

Yours in Rotary Service,
José Octavio Guillén
Rotary Club of Santa Rosa
