What We Do
We are the largest Rotary Club in Rotary District 5240 that runs from San Luis Obispo to Bakersfield and the first chartered club in the Conejo Valley in 1958. As a club member, you are not only an integral part of our club but part of a larger global network of volunteer professionals who dedicate their time and talent to tackle the world’s most pressing humanitarian challenges.
We are leaders in our community from all walks of life and all professions and businesses joining together in fun and fellowship to make a positive impact on our Thousand Oaks community and around the world. Our motto is “Service Above Self”.
Our club has impacted and continues to impact our community by leading efforts for such projects as helping to build the Dream Catcher Playground in CRPD, developing a state of the art dental clinic at the Conejo Free Clinic for the underserved in our community, providing grief counseling services at the Hospice of the Conejo for our Hispanic community, funding programs and housing start-ups for aging-out foster kids at James Storehouse, providing meals and care for our senior citizens at Senior Concerns, and the list goes on and on!
We also work to make the world a better place internationally. Our members have raised over a million dollars to fund hands-on projects such as hearing aids for children and seniors in Tijuana, maternal health care equipment and nurse training in India, training villagers in regions of Asia to develop an organic farm to feed the village and provide income to the villagers, to create clean drinking water for South American communities, to immunize children against polio around the world and other life-changing projects world wide.
