The list below will give you an idea of some of the local projects that we are involved in. We also have some regional and several international projects as well. If you are interested in getting involved in a fun loving group that enjoys helping others Rotary might be for you. Our Club President, Secretary and the entire club invite you to come visit us...
Adopt-A-Family Program - Our club supports several needy families with gifts and food items for the Christmas holidays.
Camp Royal (youth leadership) - Camp Royal is located in the Trinity Alps near Hayfork, CA. It is a week long, summer camp, leadership training experience for juniors (to be seniors) high school students. It invites several motivational speakers and community leaders to speak and teach during the week. Speakers are flown in and out of the Hayfork airport by volunteer Rotarian pilots.
