Thomas Page Third Grade Dictionary Give Away

Each year, the Rotary club of Rancho Cotati  distributes dictionaries to the 3rd grade class at Thomas Page Academy.
Rotarians sign the books for each child and share a Pizza lunch.  Since Covid-19 , our club had a chance to visit Thomas page , and the smiles on each student made us realize why Rotary creates Hope.

Drumming Event to Celebrate the Fall Equinox & Community Healing!

We had a really fun drumming event led by musician, composer and writer Linton Hale in celebration of the Fall Equinox and Community Healing! We enjoyed complimentary pizza and drinks, and were joined by Apple Tree Morris Dancers a local English folk dance team. It was so much fun we’re planning to do it again, so stay tuned and come join us next time!

Walk to support National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI)

Rancho Cotati Rotarians and Rotaractors support National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) walk to bring more awareness to mental health.

Walk to Prevent Suicide at Sonoma state University

SRJC and SSU Rotaract Clubs joined to walk for Suicide Prevention. A social brunch afterwards and a open discussion after each one’s experience with suicide was very good. Many Kudos to our Rotaractors!

RP Summer Farmer’s Market!

This past summer City Center Plaza in Rohnert Park transformed into Party on the Plaza at the Rohnert Park Farmers Market! Our club was there to help fundraise to benefit our community.

Sonoma County Library Donation

A donation of $7,000 by Rancho Cotati Rotary helps our local library branches expand books by minority authors during pandemic and in the midst of Blacks Lives matter.  Knowledge is power and when we know better we do better, whether it’s local, regional, or international.
