Davis Rotarians have served their community and the world since 1926

By Roger Gambatese

True to the Rotary motto, “Service Above Self,” the men and women of the Rotary Club of Davis, founded in 1926, have responded to humanitarian needs, locally and worldwide, through their Rotary membership.

Locally, in recent years, members have been painting and otherwise maintaining facilities used by Davis people in need, delivering Meals on Wheels lunches to Davis residents twice a week, and contributing significant funds and time to help prevent child abuse in Yolo County. The raffle at the annual Rotary Barbecue for the general public in May inĀ Central Park raises more than $70,000 for Davis youth groups.

Internationally, club members recently have administered polio vaccine to children in underdeveloped regions of the world, overseen drilling for clean water in rural Africa, furnished artificial hands in Ecuador, provided housing for tsunami victims in Sri Lanka and counseled medical personnel in Kenya on child abuse recognition and prevention.

These are only examples of the many ways members of the Rotary Club of Davis provide service to others in need, both locally and worldwide.

From the beginning, club members have met weekly on Monday for a delicious lunch, good fellowship and an interesting half-hour educational program. For the past 63 years, the meetings have been at Fellowship Hall of the Davis Community Church at Fourth and D streets. The meetings are from 12:15 to 1:30 p.m. Visitors are encouraged.

The club has 80 members in many walks of life and welcomes more. The opportunities for service are endless.
