Welcome to the
Rotary Club of Santa Rosa East/West

"People of Action"

Where We Meet

Our Rotary Club meets on most Tuesdays. We have a Club meeting at the Finley Center in Santa Rosa at noon on the 1st and 3rd Tuesday of the month. At least once a month, we engage in a hands-on project, and the 4th Tuesday is a social at 5:30pm. It’s best to consult our Events Calendar for up-to-date meeting times and locations. We love meeting new people, so we hope you’ll join us!


What We Do

We are a service club that works together to make our city and our world a better place for all, especially those affected by poverty. We spend our time planning projects, distributing funds and learning about our community. We develop friendships and create opportunities for networking, and we welcome everyone.

Who We Are

We are local business professionals, small business owners, retired folks, community leaders, young people and travelers who have a heart for service. We like to have fun and do good together!

Our partnership includes Rotary Clubs:

  • Healdsburg
  • Rosenheim-Innstadt, Bavaria, Germany
  • Cherkasy-Centre, Ukraine
  • Rotary Districts 5130 USA, 1842 Germany, 2232 Ukraine 
Shortly after the Russian invasion on 24 February 2022, Rotarians and friends from Cherkasy, Ukraine, Santa Rosa’s Sister City, contacted us seeking humanitarian assistance.

Through a partnership of local Sonoma County Rotary Clubs and the Rotary club of Rosenheim-Innstadt in Bavaria, Germany, we have to-date raised $275,000 for first aid kits, generators, portable battery power units, medical supplies, etc.

Unreliable power presents countless challenges, whether in the operating room of a field hospital or a health clinic.  Last winter, Sonoma County Rotary Clubs with our partners in Rosenheim-Innstadt, Germany delivered over 7 tons of generators and battery packs for emergency power through our all-volunteer network of Rotarians.

Where Have All the Flowers Gone - English/Ukrainian

Monday, June 26, 2023
By: Daniel J. Lambert
Early in 2023 Peter Yarrow and Maria Burmaka, a Ukrainian peace activist and singer, collaborated to produce a music video of the song Where Have All the Flowers Gone in Ukrainian and English. The history of this song is a bit convoluted but was first recorded by Pete Seeger and subsequently by numerous other artists including Peter, Paul and Mary, The Kingston Trio, and Marlene Dietrich. The original version of the song originated in Ukraine or in the Don River area of Russia just east of Ukraine.

Our club joined with the Rotary Clubs of Santa Rosa and Rosenheim-Innstadt of Bavaria, Germany, to purchase and deliver over $90,000 worth of generators and portable power units (battery packs) to the Rotary Club of Cherkasy-Centre, Ukraine. The equipment was sourced in Germany due to the differences in European and American electrical power and to simplify the transport to Ukraine.

I had the opportunity to visit a project that our club supports in Chone Ecuador.  The Agricultural Training Center provides education to farmers and agricultural students on sustainable farming.  Their primary crop is bamboo, but they have 17 crops on the farm for diversity and crop rotation.  The education of diversity is important, as it is not intuitive for the local farmers.

"From set up to delivery, everybody had a wonderful time. I really enjoyed going to the schools and meeting the children. I especially loved it when their faces lit up and how they couldn't stop talking about their new dictionaries. A very worthwhile project." Chris Parr-Feldman
