This past year for me truly has been a very fulfilling one. It has been an honor to serve our community and the Rotary Club of Davis as president for 2013-14.

Rotary has been a part of my life for many years, going back to when I was a teenager and was fortunate enough to attend Camp Royal. One of the many youth programs that Rotary sponsors in the community, Camp Royal provides a weeklong student leadership camp each year to a handful of local high school juniors. Beyond Camp Royal, our Rotary club is engaged in many activities that involve and inspire the youth of Davis to become good citizens of our community.
Rotary International provides opportunities to our community members to become engaged in international and local community projects. If you are looking to give back to our local community or to the world community, Rotary is the place for you. We meet on Mondays at noon in the Fellowship Hall of the Davis Community Church, 421 D St.

I would like to personally invite you as my guest to attend one of our meetings. In my opinion, our meetings consist of fun fellowship with more than 80 active members, and exceptional speakers, including university professors and administrators, local media personalities and business leaders from throughout the region. Not to mention, the lunch is top-notch each week from the well-known restaurant, The Buckhorn, which provides the catering.
Being a Rotarian for eight years now, I can say without hesitation that Rotary International is a very rewarding organization. By becoming a Rotarian in Davis you actually become a Rotarian of the world, and the opportunities where you can give back are endless.

What Rotary has that is unique is the abundant number of ways you can to contribute to causes that are dear to your own heart as well as opening your eyes and interest to causes new to you. The following short articles will give you a more in-depth picture of just some of the work Rotarians do and what it means to provide “Service Above Self.”

Rotary Club of Davis (noon)
When: 12:15-1:30 p.m. Mondays
Where: Davis Community Church Fellowship Hall, 421 D St.
