Welcome to the Rotary Club of Redlands! It’s an exciting year to lead the club as president after ending such a great 2022 – 2023 year. We’re not shutting the door on our previous year, but building a bridge to the new year by continuing our programs and successes while looking at new ways to positively engage our members and community.
This year, Rotary International is focused on the theme Create Hope in the World. The pillars of this theme focus on stemming the stigmas around mental health, promoting peace around the globe and within our own communities, maintaining the work and emphasis on diversity, equity, and inclusion, and continuing the work to eradicate polio. As a local club, we’ll help achieve this by incorporating these pillars in our service projects, partnering with local organizations, and continuing our fundraising efforts for scholarships and polio.
This year, we will continue our signature events: the Ron Jeffrey Winemaker Dinner; Red, Wine, & Blues; and Touch-A-Truck. We’re also bringing back our Murder Mystery Dinner! All of our events support scholarships, the eradication of polio, and community programs like the YMCA’s Safety Around Water program.
