Rotary is an organization of business and professional leaders united worldwide, who provide humanitarian service, encourage high ethical standards in all vocations, and help build goodwill and peace in the world.
Founded in 1949, the “Friendly EC Rotary Club” comes by its name honestly…we’ve earned our reputation for making newcomers feel welcome. Our diverse membership meets weekly for fellowship and to hear compelling speakers. Each year we commit to one or more service projects to make a difference in our community.
For our El Cerrito community, we regularly sponsor youth programs, including the high school's Interact Service Club, and contribute funds towards equipment including musical instruments, scholarships and international student exchange programs.
Our Club also support international organizations providing much needed services. For example, we support a Nepal organization working to prevent childhood blindness.
