On Saturday, May 23, members of Sebastopol’s two Rotary Clubs — the Rotary Club of Sebastopol and Rotary Club Sebastopol Sunrise — donned masks and brought their shovels to put the final touches on the new play structure in Libby Park, dispersing bark around the playground.
District Governor Kathy Flamson reminds us that May is Rotary Youth Service Month.
Rotary International's Structured Programs for Youth Service are: Interact, Rotaract, Rotary Youth Leadership Awards, and Youth Exchange.
The month of May is designated as “Youth Service Month” to focus on all Rotary activities that support the development of young people up to the age of 30.

May is Youth Service Month
- May 1, 2020
The Rotary Club of Sebastopol Sunrise supports youth in many ways.
We recognize a "Student of the Month" during the school year and one of those well-deserving kids is recognized as the "Student of the Year".
We host an exchange student each year, and also sponsor an outgoing Exchange Student. This year, we are hosting Ana, from Brazil, and our outbound student, Julian, is going to Brazil in the Fall.
We also sponsor a Rotary Interact club at El Molino High School in Forestville, CA and support RYLA, the Rotary Youth Leadership Award Camp at Wesminster Woods, in Occidental, CA, where our young men and women learn lifelong leadership skills.
While it may sound cliché, the children of the world are our future, and we proudly nurture them, helping them become leaders, peace builders and world citizens.
The 2020 Rotary Virtual Convention
- April 30, 2020
Mark your calendars for 20-26 June for an exciting opportunity to gather online with the family of Rotary for our first online convention.
Together, we’ll still experience the spirit of Rotary, be inspired by innovation, celebrate our resilience, and explore how clubs are addressing COVID-19. Experience Rotary in action during our Flag Ceremony, witness the power of connection during our general sessions, learn new ways to engage with Rotary during our breakout sessions, find inspiration from our global speakers, and much more.
We have never needed Rotary — and we have never needed each other — more than we do now. We hope to see you online, because Now More Than Ever, Rotary Connects the World.
