A Few Words About Us

The theme for 2018-2019 Rotary year is "Rotary: Be the Inspiration". As Rotarians and being part of a service organization, we look forward to serving our community, supporting local and international projects, and reaching out to people in need..

Danette Roberts
President's Message

Welcome to our new Rotary year! I am excited and honored to serve as your President. It is such a privilege to work alongside our devoted Board and outstanding Club members who are committed to live by the Four Way Test. I am looking for opportunities to add value to our membership and to serve our Community as well as those in need around the Globe.
One of my priorities is to continue with our Membership expansion, adding like-minded individuals who share our vision of providing service above self with the highest ethical standards. My focus this year is on Youth Services and utilizing programs that will educate and empower students in our community.
I also believe in the power of collaboration with other clubs as it provides the ability to do bigger and better things, while broadening our fellowship prospects. Our Club is prepared to engage in more inter-club activities and welcome opportunities for joint service projects. We aim to choose projects based on merit and without bias.
The Board and I are working on projects and ideas that will engage every member. Such engagement is important for succession planning and will ensure long-term success of our Club. Our goal is to enhance leadership skills by providing opportunities to work side by side with community leaders including the leaders we are fortunate to already have in our club.
I am aware of the importance of fundraising to accomplish our goals. Our Club is extremely happy and grateful for the overwhelming response and support given to our annual Fundraising Event. We are organizing another fun-filled event in September called “Bollywood Nights”. Be on the lookout for updates!
I am honored and thankful for the trust placed in me by our membership and look forward to another fantastic year for Cannery Row Rotary Club!
