Since 1925
President`s Message

Welcome to the Sebastopol Rotary Club's website.  On behalf of our club, I am excited as we enter our Centennial Year.   This is an amazing accomplishment for us to reach our 100th year and to be able to continue our journey of helping the youth in our community, working to eradicate polio and spreading PEACE in our world.  We are mighty proud that we have taught every second grader to swim for free since 1984.  We have completed 14 years of our Overcoming Obstacles program in which we honor six high school seniors who have overcome serious hurdles in their young lives. We work on projects to help our community – refreshing the landscapes around the post office, chamber, art center, senior center, and numerous other projects.

Rotary International President, Stephanie Urchick’s theme for the 2024-25 year is “The Magic of Rotary".  This theme came to Stephanie from a small boy in a remote village where Rotary had just installed a clean water system.  Stephanie shared with the village how to turn on the water system.  After the water was off, the small boy came up to Stephanie a short time later and asked: "Can you please show me the magic again.” This was no magician's trick, just an amazing gift of something that we all take for granted. Why don’t you consider joining with us in the magic of Rotary.

Along with our swimming lessons and helping high school seniors who have overcome serious obstacles, we will continue to build upon our cornerstone of youth oriented programs which provide:


·Teacher Grants of up to $500 per teacher to help enhance classroom curriculums

·Community Grants up to $5,000 for youth program and community improvements

·Interact Clubs teaching leadership skills and community involvement to middle and high school students

·RYLA Leadership Camp for high school juniors

·Cool Kids Camp for abused youth

·Financial Literacy for high school students

·Mental Health programs in the middle and high schools

·Holiday Gifts & Meals to families and children in need

·Youth Exchange with other countries; both inbound and outbound


Please ask me how you can join our effort to give our youth the power and opportunity to succeed, all while having fun making our community and world a better place.

Yours in Rotary Service,

Cindy Carter
