Women in Rotary

 
It's hard to believe that there was a time when women were not allowed in Rotary.  The Council of Legislation ruled in 1989 to allow women in Rotary clubs all around the world.  Since that time, we've never looked back.  In honor in International Women's Day, take some time to watch the video about how the history of women in Rotary.  To read more about Women in Rotary, click here: https://www.rotary.org/en/history-women-rotary

WESSEX Rotary Youth Exchange takes on San Francisco!

 
Back in October a group of 40 Rotary Youth Exchange (RYE) students visited San Francisco for 2 days as part of their west coast tour.  Several of our Galileo Interactors joined the fun to help show these students our city.  Christian & Krissie were there as well to help chaperone and take groups on tours.  Students chose either Union Square, Chinatown, or Haight Ashbury for their morning tour.  They also went to Alcatraz and biked the Golden Gate Bridge during their stay.  The students collectively were from over 20 different countries and came through efforts of Western States Student Exchange (WESSEX).  WESSEX is a non-commercial organization originally formed by seven Rotary International Districts (5130, 5150, 5160, 5170, 5180, 5220, and 5230). Did you know that our very own District 5150 participates in RYE? Many clubs in our district participate and sponsor exchange students.

The Needle Walk was a huge success.  Check out the video! We had Rotarians from 8 different Rotary clubs there to help clean up the streets of San Francisco.  The Dept of Public Works gave us the supplies needed for the cleanup and off we went walking the streets of SOMA near Tehama Street.
