We Start the Day Right

As our Club name implies, we meet weekly for a friendly breakfast to start the day with a sense of “Service Above Self”.  We are the only Rotary Club in southern Alameda County that meets in the morning before the work day begins.  We are a vibrant Club who gives back to our community and has fun doing it by mentoring youth and supporting local organizations who help those in need.  We also partner with other area Rotary Clubs and Rotary International to make life better around the world. We are especially proud of our Club's contributions to Rotary International's global signature initiative "End Polio Now".  We are part of something really big!  Drop by one of our meetings to see that we are truly the "Little Club that Does a Lot."
 
Our Stories
The Grateful Garment Project is an organization that makes a tangible contribution to our community.  They provide new clothing to victims of sexual assault so that they can leave medical facilities after forensic exams with a level of dignity.  Last fall, our Club made a substantial contribution to their organization to purchase needed clothing items.  But we did not want it to end there.  Earlier this month, several of our members spent a Saturday afternoon helping inventory donated clothing and brought some new blankets to add to their list.  Even small gestures make a big difference to someone.

Each year, the Richard D. King Rotary District Speech Contest stretches from February to late April to reward the best high school speaker from our district’s 55 clubs.  This year’s theme is “Rotary Serving Humanity”  Irvington High School Senior Austin Huang, won first place in our Club’s contest with a simple but inspiring message he called "Empathy".  As a clerk at In-N-Out Burgers, he makes a point to cheerfully greet each customer and then actively listens to how their day is going.  In this way, he conveys that someone is interested in what they are doing and tries to help each of his customers feel just a little bit better.  Austin will advance to the Rotary Area level speech contest in a few weeks.
