The Original Social Network ...
 
 
 

Rotary is a leadership organization …

We’re made up of local business, professional and civic leaders. We meet regularly, get to know each other, form friendships, and through that, we’re able to get things done in our community.  
  • We build lifelong relationships
  • We honor our commitments
  • We connect diverse perspectives
  • We apply our leadership and expertise to solve social issues

For a half-century, Rancho Bernardo Rotarians have been living their motto of “Service Above Self.” More than 100 Rotarians and their friends gathered on Dec. 4 to celebrate the Rotary Club of Rancho Bernardo’s 50th anniversary with a party at Maderas Golf Club in Poway. “I thought the event was awesome, an opportunity to reflect on the (club’s) history and set the stage for the future,” said President Don Glover. Photo and article courtesy of the Rancho Bernardo News Journal

In a nod to the international organization’s motto of “service above self,” Faulconer told them in his opening remarks that it is “great” for their community and the city that they “care enough to get involved and make a difference."
