Our Club’s Presidents
The Santa Ynez Valley Rotary Club was the first Rotary club in the valley; chartered on March 10, 1959. Our meetings are held every Wednesday at 12:00 pm at the Root 246 in Solvang. We would love to have you come visit us and see what makes Rotary so rewarding for our members. Each week we have lunch, an interesting speaker, and a lot of fun!
Our Mission is simple. We enjoy helping others and try to foster peace, prosperity, goodwill and understanding throughout our community and the world. Working together as a group, we accomplish much more than we could individually. We expect nothing in return for our efforts. Seeing the positive changes we help make possible locally and throughout the world is its own greatest reward. We believe in living up to Rotary’s motto: “Service Above Self “.
