What is Rotary? 

RI President John F. Germ chose Rotary Serving Humanity as his theme for 2016-17. Noting Rotary’s unique ability to bring together committed professionals to achieve remarkable goals, Germ believes that “now is the time to capitalize on our success: as we complete the eradication of polio, and catapult Rotary forward to be an even greater force for good in the world.”  Watch RI President John Germ discussing the theme.



One of the most important aspects of the fight to eradicate polio is detecting where the disease is present. This continuous surveillance is complicated and costly. Ninety percent of people infected with the virus show no symptoms, and those who do usually have mild symptoms such as fever, fatigue, and headaches. Only one in every 200 cases of the illness results in paralysis, which means that for every child with signs of paralysis, several hundred are carrying the disease and may not show it.  Read the entire article in The Rotarian.



Rotary Youth Leadership Awards (RYLA) is a leadership development program run by Rotary. Over 200 high school students in District 5170 participated in Camp RYLA the week of June 27 at the Mission Springs Camps and Conference Center in Scotts Valley.  RYLA includes presentations, activities, and workshops that cover a variety of topics, including:

  • Leadership fundamentals and ethics
  • Communication skills
  • Problem solving and conflict management
  • Community and global citizenship
Five students from Castro Valley and Redwood Christian High School participated this year.  Bruce Johnson and Jim Negri attended the Thursday evening presentations and BBQ.
The students will be sharing their RYLA experiences with the Club in October.  It will be a meeting that you will not want to miss.  Guest are welcome to attend.

We had a very successful year serving our Castro Valley Area community in 2015. We ran or participated in an event in just about every month of the year. We also added special projects like renovating the local Adobe Art Center that made a material impact on improving our community. We invite you to join us in our ongoing mission to make Castro Valley one of the best places to live in the Bay Area.
