President Bob Is Looking For Rats
President Bob is looking for Rotarians who will provide him with some "fining" material on other Rotarians.  In essence he his looking for some persons who will "rat out" other Rotarians.  We can all see by his pathetic attempts at fining that he is in desperate need of help at "recognizing" Rotarians for their new vehicles, vacations, promotions, newspaper articles, etc.  All those who successfully "rat out" will become eligible for a drawing to be held at the end of Bob's year for a 7 day 3 1/2 night stay at the Ritz-Carlton Maricopa. 
Maricopa Update
Last week Homer Higgenbottom and Januvius Winterbottom were in the local coffee shop discussing the state of world affairs.  Homer offered, "I ran into  the local Army recruiter yesterday and asked him how the recruiting was going.  He said recruiting was not going well and that he wasn't going to make his quota.  I asked him why he thought people weren't signing up for the Army.  He said he thought it might have something to do with their new recruiting slogan 'America sucks, but join the Army because you feel guilty."  Januvius responded, "I believe he has a point."
"I suppose you saw that Nancy Pelosi went to Taiwan, and that the Chinese were very upset at her," continued Januvius.  "I heard they were so upset that they cut off her supply of ice cream,"  said Homer.  "Wow!" exclaimed Januvius, "That really is serious."  Homer contributed, "I also heard that the Chinese have aimed their entire arsenal of BS seeking missiles at the U.S."  Januvius retorted, "Then we are safe.  If they fire them towards the United States they will go to Washington, D.C. or Sacramento.  We won't have anything to worry about in Maricopa."  "I love this town!" said Homer.

We are a leadership organization comprised of local business, civic, and professional leaders.
We are a nonpolitical nonsectarian service club.

In 2020 we had a virtual fundraiser and raised over $53,000  which we gave to five local charities:
     Orcutt Trails
     Casa of Hope
     ECHO/Band of Brothers
We support the Interact Club at St. Joseph's High School and we donate scholarships to Allan Hancock College.
We clean up Buena Vista Park and with three other Rotary clubs we coordinate the Rotary Christmas Parade.
Come and learn more about our club's humanitarian service and high ethical standards and help us build good will in our community.
